I rented Woodberry for a week for my family to come visit. I fealt like I was walking into a dream on arrival. The pictures do not do the place justice. It is as nice as it can be while remaining homey and warm. Having so many things to do from the rocky shore to golf right down the road. Can't say enough, loved it. Also the owners were very pleasant to deal with.

At Woodberry I had the odd sensation that I was spending time at a friend's home. The owner and the house were so welcoming. Lovely decor, wonderful view. Loved the little details like the firewood and the games closet. The screened porch is great. Close enough to Acadia for a day trip. . .plenty to do on Deer Isle. Wish we could have stayed longer. I hope to go back soon.

Perfect for our family gathering!
Perfect for our family gathering!
Thank you so much! We have loved our week-long stay at Woodberry Cottage. This gave our family the opportunity to have all 11 of us –three generations -- together for a vacation for the first time. And, it was absolutely wonderful. The cottage had all the comforts of home – everything we could imagine or need -- be it for cooking fresh lobster or a closet full of games for the evening. What an incredible view of the ocean and the sunsets! We had great fun with crab races down on the beach, watching the tides change, the trips into Stonington for ice cream, the amazing stars at night, and just relaxing. We even went swimming in the Lily Pond. Cold but good fun. This was a new experience for the grandchildren. I would highly recommend Woodberry Cottage and would love to return.

We are 2 married couples who visit Maine each year. We spent a week at Woodberry Cottage last fall. In a quiet, private, wooded, oceanfront location, the home is very attractive, comfortable and well equipped.If you want an authentic Downeast vacation amidst great beauty, this would be an excellent choice.

Place to enjoy a longed for vacation
A note received from a satisfied rentor. "I never felt like I had the opportunity to let you know just how much we enjoyed our experience in Maine last week. The Woodberry Cottage was beyond our dreams for a place to enjoy a longed for vacation with our grown sons and daughter-in-law. WE LOVED IT. Even the way the owners have furnished it was so our taste. It was [as] if we had picked everything out ourselves. Your office was so accommodating and friendly. We hope the towel bar that came loose was not too difficult to fix. I only wrote a quick note in the guest book [at the cottage], but wondered if you would please pass on to the owners, how gracious we feel they are in sharing this "home away from home" with strangers. We hope to return. With sincerest thanks, Mary Shingler"

... the mail boat out to Eagle Island is great fun
"Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven with us! There is a lot of missing wine, lobster and blueberry pie on the island - we consumed all possible. Also, the mail boat [out to Eagle Island] is great fun."

What a beautiful place.
"What a beautiful place. Love the floor plan and all of your details. We would recommend Old Quarry for a kayak tour ... lots of fun on the 1/2 day tour ... swam at an old quarry on one of the islands. Added a piece of blue to your sea-glass bottle. Thanks again for sharing your home."

My wife and I spent a wonderful five weeks in Woodberry Cottage last year. The setting is idyllic; the Cottage immaculate, well designed and fully furnished. Everything you would need for a carefree vacation stay has been provided. Without a doubt, Woodberry Cottage is the loveliest vacation rental we have ever enjoyed, in Maine or elsewhere. We plan to return this summer for another five weeks . . . and hopefully many times after that.

Rang in the New Year
(From the Guest Book at the cottage)"We wish you a happy and prosperous 2005. Thank you very much for opening your house for us this winter. It was comfortable, convenient and entertaining. We saw your resident red fox, listened to the wind and the waves, and rang in the new year in our accustomed style — quietly, with our family, in Maine."

Beautiful homeGuest comment entered by owner
(The Kao's, with their four children, were our first rentors. They wrote us a note at the end of their stay. We started this Guest Book 6/15/05) We had a fantastic time - too little time - we were all crying when we left. We hope we can come back! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved it.
