  • Amazing

    "I have rented over 60 houses in five countries and all across the US, including over 20 in Hawaii and this is by far the most beautiful house I have ever stayed in. It starts with the view as you pull into the driveway. The grounds, while landscaped retain that natural beauty of Maine. In my imagination I could not have designed a more beautiful home. Everywhere you look, inside and out, there are beautiful or whimsical decorative touches. The carving in the railing on the bottom floor has to be seen. The person who created that is an absolute genius. The porcupine that watches over the great room brings a smile to your face. You have to see the house and spend a week in it to truly appreciate it. Words and pictures cannot even begin to do this house justice. We were there before the summer season kicks in so the ferry was closed, no water taxi, no buses, few businesses. Luckily J.M. Gerrish opened the week before we arrived and Chase's is open all year. All the other houses on the street were unoccupied but the houses are all situated so that you would never see or hear anybody at this house. The Wi-Fi worked great. The cable worked great but there were so many remotes I was the only person who could figure out the combination of how to use them. The bathrooms were spectacular. The beds comfortable. The kitchen well appointed with a gas range. A really, really comfortable house. There is one bedroom on the main level so if you have people with mobility problems they can still enjoy the house. There are about five steps to get into the house but they are broken up into two steps and three. We had no problem getting our one semi-invalid in. Getting her into the bed, which was a little high, required a small step stool but we had one. A binder with lots of useful area info. The kids loved playing on the shore and exploring the woods. The bedroom on the top floor, a loft, has no doors and the bottom floor has no door. It was very large with a recliner, couch, and the most spectacular views from the bed to the water. It was like you had your own apartment. But when the kids were on the 3rd floor talking and my husband and I were on the bottom, we could hear them perfectly. And TV sounds traveled up and down. You could also hear the happenings in the main floor great room. The main floor bedroom had a door. We would definitely stay here again. You will not be disappointed, but it may ruin you for other rental houses."

  • Peace and paradise

    "Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique. Ce cottage est absolument parfait. Le lieu, la décoration, les activités et le design du bâtiment... Tout est très bien agencé. Le parc Acadia est juste à côté et la petite ville de Ellsworth est très sympathique avec de petits magasins. Cet endroit et ce cottage sont à recommandé. We had a fantastic week. This cottage is absolutely perfect. The location, decor, activities and the building design... Everything is very well arrange. Acadia park is right around the corner and the small town of Ellsworth is very nice with a lot of boutique / small stores. This place and this cottage must be recommended."

  • Swan Island

    "We were on Swan Island 20 years ago and it is as beautiful as I remember it to be. The location of the house we rented was fabulous. Water views back and side of house. We received information about the house beforehand but I wish we had been informed of the TV situation in case of a rainy day. Who today has a VHS TV the size of an IPAD. I assumed it would have been a DVD player / TV. Brought multiple DVD movies but were unable to watch them. Did however get to read 5 books and play backgammon again. For the most part it was a great vacation. The people on the island were as friendly as ever. If the pillows and the pots and pans and the TV were updated I would have given it 5 stars. Needed utensils for hard shell lobsters. Since we were there last they opened "The Tea Room". It was great for pastry and sandwiches. Tim's general store was also handy. Great looking breads,soups and other types of fresh foods. The house was clean and my HGTV person took over planning how I would decorate it if it was mine to do so."

  • Wonderful Week at Orchard House

    "Staying at Orchard House was really a pleasure. The house has a clean, modern interior and was well-provisioned with lots of room to spread out and a great kitchen for cooking and entertaining. We have a young child and appreciated having a child’s room right off of the upstairs master. The friendly owners were very helpful, providing a great book of local recommendations and posting small signs throughout the house which clarified how things worked. Orchard House is in a peaceful wooded setting - no ocean view, but near a large lake (Walker Pond) that has boating, a small beach, and a children's day camp nearby. The location of the house was a perfect starting-off point for many adventures in Blue Hill, Brooksville, Deer Isle, and even Acadia National Park. We highly recommend this property for a wonderful week in Maine!"
