"We visited Maine last year for the first time and loved it so much, we had to include it in our travel plans again this year. We decided to stay a little longer and bring our dog this time, and found this lovely gem in Orrington just south of Bangor. We were planning on using this as a home base from which to make day trips all over Maine, but we loved it so much, we only left once to go visit friends we made last year and twice to pick up groceries. On our last night here, we realized we hadn't been out to eat in the area, so we made a trip out for local fare. We also felt obligated...since we were there....to drive around Bangor and see what it was all about. That's a round-about way of saying we were so comfortable and satisfied with the house and its location along the river, that we never really got the itch to leave! Sue and Joe have thought of everything starting with all the fixings for pancakes our first morning there....which we managed to stretch out for our first three mornings! The house is completely round! It's really a ranch with a walk-out lower level. Kitchen, living, dining, and half bath upstairs and a wall of windows you wouldn't believe offering a panoramic view of the Penobscot River! We were mesmerized for hours. The lower level has THREE bedrooms (we only needed the one since it was just the two of us and our little dog) and two full baths AND a laundry room. There are a couple of seating areas up in the yard to watch the River tides roll in and out....or the bald eagles soar by or catch a fish! We got in the habit of sitting on the floating dock with our feet in the water at high tide. You can swim in the river or take out one of their kayaks available for use too. Sue and Joe were very accommodating and informative hosts. They have thought of everything. The kitchen is fully equipped, there are supplies for dogs and children. Soap, cleaning, and laundry supplies too. It has quality furniture and is beautifully and lovingly decorated. We felt right at home."

"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."

"This is a great spot to do Acadia. It's right in the center of the park in a charming old village. Very well furnished and comfortable, more so than appears in the photos. The owners are very helpful and gracious."

"This was a gorgeous location and I can't say enough about the view. It was spectacular my husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary here and I didn't want to come home. It was close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor but very private and secluded for our evenings. Thanks again for a wonderful week!"
