"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."

"As a child I spent summers on Little Deer Isle in Maine, and my wife and I have been coming for vacations for a number of years. We have rented cottages on Deer Isle, Mount Desert Island, and near Damariscotta. We had heard that Castine is one of prettiest towns in Maine and thought we would try it this year. The Castine village turned out to be one of the loveliest, most beautiful places we have ever visited. Because it is on a peninsula (it's almost an island) it has an old fashioned unspoiled quality that we have not found elsewhere. The village has a corner store, a charming library, and a boatyard. It also has a town green, predominantly white clapboard houses, churches, and old elm trees. There are forts from the revolutionary war. We took walks, went kayaking, and enjoyed the feel of the place. The Witherle Woods has great trails, and the town has only small streets that are better for walkers than drivers.
The cottage was exceptional. It stands close to the center of the village and overlooks the harbor. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the activity on the water. There were little sailboats with children taking sailing lessons as well as beautiful old classic yachts and schooners. The name of the cottage is spot on--watching the moon rise over the water was magical. The cottage itself is very comfortable, and it has a light, airy quality. It is thoughtfully and tastefully furnished, and there is an amazing view of the water from almost every window.
We were looking for a comfortable place in a beautiful location. This exceeded our expectations. The cottage was really great, and Castine is unique. The convenience of being in a town where you can get supplies and walk everywhere, made for a relaxing vacation. We hope we can come back again next year."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this roomy light filled apartment. It is conveniently located for access to Acadia and Mount Desert Island attractions, a few minutes outside Bar Harbor, and even closer to Acadia. The owner was very engaging, providing a warm welcome, and advice about local attractions. The apartment itself is large and well appointed, with excellent kitchen. Going to sleep accompanied by the bullfrogs in the pond was great. Highly Recommend to anyone visiting Acadia or MDI."

"The Stonington Guest Cottage exceeded our expectaions. The space is delightful as were our hosts, Doug and Leslie. We found the cottage immaculate, spacious with fine amenities including fresh flowers picked from the lovely garden waiting for us as we arrived.
Our week was a perfect mixture of relaxation, exploring the town and Deer Isle. We we took part in the local culture attending a dance at the Stonington Opera House and enjoying a string quartet and a quaint church.
We hope that other guests will find the harbor view from the screened in porch and deck as romantic and peaceful as we did. Leslie gave us great restaurant tips and we found the restaurants very reasonable in price with delicious food.
A perfect slice of heaven without the large numbers of tourists. Thank you Doug and Lesle for sharing your special cottage with us."
