Perfect location and size for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The location of this vacation rental was perfect for our large family with four small children, as we could all walk to the little beach quickly (less than 5 minutes) and return easily for nap or meal time. The owners were helpful and accommodated our request to rent both of their properties to house four couples- 2 with small children. The two homes on neighboring properties allowed for plenty of space for people to visit as well as find a quiet spot in the house away from noise for naps. Both houses have deck space for sitting and/or eating outside and are located within walking distance of Pemaquid Harbor and Pemaquid Beach. These homes fit our vacation needs perfectly, and we look forward to our return in 2016!

This is a wonderful house and perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year of staying here. The Dillingham's are excellent owners and the property is clean, managed well and has a GREAT person to help you with anything needed during your stay. The bay and beach are both within walking distance and so much fun for children. This location makes it easy to enjoy Damarscotta and a little over half and hour to Wicasset and Booth Bay....all wonderful places for a day

trip. The house is perfect for a family to enjoy....a big family area in the kitchen and two great decks.....we love it!!.....not to forget the Cupboard Cafe...just up the road, for breakfast or lunch out or out of this world desserts!

Perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

Flowers were blooming all along the front of the house. The picnic table in the back yard was placed for the best view of the water. Every room was bright and clean. the walk to the beach with our coffee cups and sticky buns from the Cupboard was short. The beach roses along the beach were also in bloom. The lobster were tasty at Muscongus Bay and at Pemaquid Harbor.. Pemaquid beach, the Light House, Salt Pond were all close. We even got to go to Granite Hall Store, LL Beans, and out to Monhegan. Relatives stopped by to visit and also loved the house. Lots of space. Thank you!

Beautiful cottage in a nice beach neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well maintained. It has a clean, crisp feel and all utilities (showers, sinks) and electronics (TV, radio) work well. The location is terrific, situated near two beaches and a number of historic attractions.

Sweet vacation rental, near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely little house during the last week of July. The house was spotless and was perfectly laid out for 3 friends and my 1.5 year old baby. The proximity of to the beach was extremely convenient. And we had a great time exploring the area. We are already planning our return next summer. Thanks to Deb for making this house available.

Cosy and kid friendly by the beach...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting from the owners. I believe we were the first renters to stay in this house - and it was perfect. Having been in the area before, I was looking forward to the stay, but our family of 3 brought another family of 4 so we were excited to see how they liked the place and this new property. Place was clean, well kept and very cosy.

We drove all the way from Toronto, Canada which is a long trek - but it was well worth it.

The house was great, and it worked out very nicely for all of us. The house was equipped with all necessary amenities and two bathrooms and a large kitchen made the life easy for all seven of us.

The kids loved in particular the two beaches that are close by. Only a minute walk is a beach which is in a bay - perfect for crab hunting and swimming. The ocean water in Maine is chilly but this bay allows for the water to warm up. There is a bigger and sandy beach about 10 min walk from the house - here you will find bigger waves, lots of sand and more wind. Watch our for the seagulls who take any opportunity to steal food....

The area in general offers lots to do even on a gloomy or rainy day. We love visiting Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and climb the rocks and explore what the ocean has to offer. We also took a cruise to see seals something our kids loved.

The week we stayed went by fast but we had a great time. Well worth the drive and rental cost for us. Look forward to visit again.
