Lovely stay in a quiet and friendly town!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Green Gables! Our family of four stayed in the third floor apartment, which was just the right size for us for a short visit to Wiscasset. (Our teenage son slept on the sleeper sofa and found it really comfortable.) We had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Rob was great about communicating with us before the trip and Terry was super friendly and helpful while we were there. We enjoyed exploring the shops in town, as well as the flea market and Antique Barn just outside town. All four of us really enjoyed a visit to Monkey See Monkey Do, a high ropes/zipline course nearby. We ate at Red's on our first night in town. Thanks to Rob's advice, we knew to try for an evening time (little or no lines) rather than lunch time. Our Maine trip later took us to other parts of the state, but we really enjoyed starting our visit in a quiet and friendly town. Green Gables is just off Rte. 1, so it's a great location for exploring Wiscasset or venturing further afield to Bath, Boothbay, or beyond.

Great location, comfy house

  • 5 of 5

The third floor was just right for our family, the kitchen is easy to work in (be sure to bring your own oil, sugar, etc.), the deck is lovely in the afternoon...and hey, a friendly Texan welcoming you to Maine!

Maybe someday the Wiscasset shops will decide it's worth staying open past 5pm, we missed them over the whole weekend. ;)

Great apartment centrally located for day trips

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Green Gables in August of 2016 in the 3rd floor apt. It was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Rob and Sara were great hosts, very nice and helpful. We had a great week in a Wiscasset. It's not a large town with lots of nightlife. Instead it's a perfect getaway; peaceful and quiet, but it has a little bit of everything. A quintessential Maine small town with an excellent coffee shop/bakery around the corner, several antiques and art galleries, a few restaurants, cafes and bars. There's a beautiful waterfront and a "Museum in the Streets" walking tour of Maine architecture. The town has a good deal of late 18th and early 19th century buildings. It's a short distance from many of Maine's best places to visit and so it's a good choice for a base of operations. It's well known as the home of lobster roll competitors Red's Eats & Sprague's. It is also very well located for day trips into the surrounding area.

Séjour très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans le cottage et l'accueil de Rob a été très chaleureux !

Nous étions 3 adultes et 2 enfants, et l'appartement au dernier étage était spacieux. La petite terrasse est très agréable. L'appartement est bien équipé (lave-vaisselle notamment).

La maison est très bien placée, on peut se promener à pied dans le village et les autres points d'intérêts sont bien accessibles en voitures.

Une bonne adresse pour ceux qui veulent rayonner sur la côte du Maine !

Gorgeous historical property centrally located

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this property the week of July 4th and we had a truly memorable Maine experience. The house is recently renovated while keeping the historical charm of New England homes. The property is only feet away from restaurants and shops. Rob, the property manager, had many recommendations including Red's Lobster Shack which has the best lobster rolls in New England. We must have ate there 8 times during our stay! The house is right off Highway 1 which allows you to take many day trips to different parts of Maine. We also enjoyed whale watching, stripper fishing at Booth Bay Harbor and Pemequid Beach all of which were recommendations from Rob. If you want the true Maine experience stay here!

First vacation in Maine - absolutely delightful

  • 5 of 5

I rented the upstairs unit at Green Gables with my wife, son, and nephew. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and charming. The location was great - very close to Red's Eats, a famous spot for lobster rolls. There were numerous antique shops within walking distance.

The owner, Terry, was fabulous. He lives just down the block. I enjoyed talking to him about the house and coastal Maine. He was willing do do whatever it took to make for a pleasant stay. I remember him helping me get the lobster cooker going in the middle of the night!

I would definitely recommend this rental.

Car: recommended

Around the corner is Main Street Wiscasset, and several antique stores and seafood restaurants like world-famous Red's Eats. Or you can stroll less than two minutes down to the picturesque marina, the boat dock (which is also a put-in for kayaks), and the Maine Eastern line train station. Wiscasset is the antiquing capital of Maine, and visitors will find an auction house a short drive over the Route 1 bridge. The 'prettiest village in Maine' has a recreation center with a swimming pool, and locations to purchase seafood fresh from the dock. The house is a 25-minute drive to Pemaquid Beach, and the famous Pemaquid Fisherman's Coop. Drive 20 minutes for the resort atmosphere, whale-watching and fishing trips available in Boothbay Harbor.
