"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."

"Ever changing views from the large deck on this well appointed cottage on the water! Enjoy your morning coffee as you watch the lobster boats leave to check their traps. Sailboats going by in the afternoon is a pleasant site. The Moon's silver reflection over the water at night is a stunning view and lights up the deck! Lamoine is the quiet side overlooking Acadia which is a completely different experience. We even dug huge clams in front of the cottage which were delicious! Lamoine State Park and Lamoine Beach are both less than 5 min from the cottage. WiFi always worked and kitchen had everything you needed if you like to cook! Owners were very welcoming, friendly and looking to please if you needed anything. Homemade "Cereal Muffins" greeted us upon arrival!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!!"

"We have been coming to maine for 20 yrs now and this was the best experience ever. The drive down the dirt road set the stage for a perfect week in a beautiful home with a great view. Laura thought of everything. Soft music playing, windows open letting in the salty air, blueberry jam and a fabulous pancake mix. It exceeded our expectations. Thank you Laura and Richard."

"To us "out of towners" from Pennsylvania this house seemed like the quintessential Maine farm house. Wonderfully updated with all the conveniences and comforts of a cozy home yet still retaining the charm of an earlier time,...beautifully restored wooden floor boards, and maintaining the original architecture were just some of the features that made this farm house so special,.. we loved our stay! Thank you for making us feel so welcome, comfortable and at home. Highly recommended!"
