"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!"

"I had the good fortune of finding Maureen and Steve's gracious hideaway, the Garaj Mahal, and knew it had a fantastic location (very proximate to Blue Hill, Deer Isle, Brooklin, Brooksville, great restaurants and activities, etc.), but didn't expect how lovely the property and setting would be - Salt Pond is beautiful and private, and the property is well set back, with fabulous views. The space itself is so large for a loft/one bedroom that I could have moved in permanently, and every accommodation is modern, up to date and large (particularly the bathroom with the whirlpool tub!). They also have access to the water, kayaking, etc., if that's in your plans. Highly recommend - if you want to explore the beautiful Down East area, you can't do better than this."

"Perfect home for out of town guests & family attending my son's wedding. Plenty of room & home is equipped with everything you would need. Quiet & peaceful dead end street. Would be a perfect base to explore Penobscot Bay area & Acadia National Park with family & friends. Rental process was very easy & owner able to accommodate a Wednesday to Wednesday rental week for us. Good rental for someone who wants to experience all that this beautiful area of Maine offers."

"We chose this Blue Hill cottage due to proximity to MDI in the hope that it would be close enough to essential needs but maybe off the beaten path. It was all that. The cottage is close to Blue Hill but very very quiet and secluded. THe home itself is charming and everything you need for your stay is there. Kitchen was very well stocked - even a Lobster pot! Our only complaint was the electric heat did not work and it was quite cold overnight. We managed to warm up with a fire in the beautiful fireplace in the evening and as we were out and about during the day, we didn't mind. The location, amenities and condition of the cottage was perfect we would stay again without hesitation."
