  • Charming Cottage with beautiful view.

    "This is a lovely property. The area is quiet and secluded, and the view of the bay is stunning. The cottage is well maintained and recently renovated - painted, decorated, etc. It really is a perfect getaway for those wanting to explore Down East Maine. The kitchen is stocked with all the equipment you would need for a longer stay (except perhaps a dishwasher), although we only stayed two nights while attending a wedding. Although the listing says it sleeps 6, I think that could be a little close unless your party is a large family. The convertible bed is in the living room, so no privacy there. The bathroom was obviously remodeled recently and is very nice. My only complaint was lack of light over the sink for makeup etc. As I mentioned to the property manager, my eyes are old! All in all, very charming! Especially enjoyed the large deck overlooking the water. And it's so quiet there!"

  • 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."

  • Nice Rental Home on the Schoodic Peninsula

    "My husband and I rented this home in Gouldsboro for a week in October and had a really nice time. The home was very comfortable, clean and private. When we first pulled into the driveway I did not expect it to be so close the the street but with that being said it is still completely private. The road off the main one only has 2 houses on it, this home and one other one that you cannot even see. It is also about 1/10th of a mile off the main road so you do not hear the traffic. Everything you need is in the home, including extra towels and blankets and there is always the washer and dryer which I find a big convenience. The bathrooms were a nice size with a relaxing jacuzzi tub in one and a nice enclosed shower in the other. There is a beautiful mint green and black bowl sink in the downstairs bathroom, very nice. The leather couches in the living room are very comfortable as was the king size bed. Some others mentioned they did not like the two twin beds put together to make a king but we slept great on them. One thing to mention is the stairs are very steep inside and out going down to the water. The outside stairs end and you have to climb down an embankment that could be tough for some people. I did not realize the water level was dependant on the tide flow at this location and it was very mucky and muddy while we were there. It didn't really matter to us as it was October and we had no plans on swimming! Our week was mainly sunny and in the 50's just how we love it. It was fun to explore this side of Acadia for a change and the main park is a little under an hour away so we spent three days there as well. We brought our baby (a little black pug named Walter) with us and he had a great time as well. There was even a pile of doggie towels and food/water bowls in the house if he needed them. He was scared of the stairs though and had to be carried down. Since we had Walter with us I cannot recommend any restaurants in the area but I can say they had a nice gas stove and most everything you needed to cook with. The owners were very helpful with questions and I had to call them as soon as we arrived since I had left my printed email at home with the house key information on it. Luckily they picked right up and we were inside the home in minutes. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone vacationing in the area and the price was very reasonable. I would come again as well. Thank you Matt and Nicole for sharing your home."

  • Great Trip

    "First I will say that the house and the view are incredible. We arrived to a spotless house and that view won us over instantly. The seclusion of the property is also a huge plus. You don't hear a thing when you are there. You can just sit back on the deck and enjoy watching the fishermen, the waves, and just nature in general. The only negatives I have on this house were the couches and chairs in each living room. There were just not comfortable. One of the rooms has furniture you just sink into and the other has newer but uncomfortable seating. Everything outside of that is just amazing at this house. The bathrooms are updated and extremely nice. The bedrooms and beds were great. We slept 9 people here very comfortably and had a great time. The house, view, and just plain relaxing environment are incredible. I would recommend staying in this area and at this house!"
