  • Fantastic!!!

    "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."

  • First trip to Maine!

    "My husband and I wanted a peaceful escape away from noise, a lot of traffic and people. BUT, we wanted to be a reasonable driving distance to get to the places we wanted to be. The oceanfront cottage was perfect for this. It's small, but just the right size for 2 people, quaint and in a very quiet area. Right on the water with plenty of activity to watch. Or, just sit quietly, watch a seal swim by, the birds fish, lobster boats work there floats, kayakers enjoying their time, etc. I personally enjoyed walking the beach and looking for interesting objects or critters stuck in the rocky pools after the tide went out. We could get to Bar Harbor within 40 minutes and then on to Acadia which is a stunning area. Our favorite day was going to Schoodic Point and visiting the mainland portion of Acadia. Very few people there, much quieter and stunning views and sunset from Schoodic Point. Then don't miss the Seafood Stew at the Winkled Pickle. We found the Lobster rolls in Maine over priced in the heavily traveled areas but once out of Bar Harbor, Camden and other well traveled sites prices were more reasonable for most everything. From our cottage we were able to enjoy good food, plenty of shopping, Beautiful sites everywhere and lots and lots to do OR...do nothing. We enjoyed that to and the cottage, lawn and beach offered that. Dick and Ivy were rarely seen and very quiet. We did not even know they were around most of the time. We found them to be excellent hosts, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The neighbor right next door was also nice and stopped by to say hi. We would recommend the cottage for couples who don't have a large budget as it was extremely reasonable for the accommodations we got. Maine is a beautiful place both inland and on the coast and we loved our time there."

  • Amazing views and Great Location!

    "This was our first family trip to Deer Isle and we had the great fortune of finding this rental. The house is lovely, the kitchen well equipped, and the views from the porch are amazing. The location is perfect for relaxing; not too close to town but not far away either. There are also a number of nature preserves nearby for wonderful hiking. Could not ask for a more thoughtful family to rent from, a better house to rent or a better location."

  • Wonderful, Welcoming House

    "I can't say enough great things about this beautiful gem near Acadia National Park. The owner has gone out of her way to make it welcoming and enjoyable for visitors. The kitchen is more than well equipped; there are two full refrigerators and an empty pantry in the center that proved incredibly convenient for us to store the groceries we bought. We enjoyed using the puzzles in the living room, which has a large table and fireplace. Each room has a ceiling fan and the bathrooms were perfect. There is a pretty flower garden and yard, and the nearest Park entrance is not far away. We also found the location to be very convenient to Bar Harbor where we could use a less traveled approach. The one thing you should know, is that even though there are 4 lovely bedrooms (each with a hamper and empty dressers) 3 of the bedrooms are accessed through each other. The bedroom on the third floor with 4 single beds can only be reached through a bedroom with a queen bed which is accessed from the bedroom with a double bed. We were three couples and it worked out fine for us. I would definitely choose to stay here again the next time I visit Acadia."
