"We stayed here the week of July 10 through 17, 2015 and enjoyed every moment. It was such a comfortable space and located right in the middle of all there is do to! We enjoyed the towns of Blue Hill, Castine, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, and even took a day trip to Camden and Belfast!
The hummingbird feeders kept us entertained for hours! We were very happy with the Internet, satellite tv, gas stove, grill, and all the modern conveniences while feeling secluded and rustic all at the same time.

"The Punch Bowl is an extraordinary place. The house is comfortable, relaxed, and totally equipped with everything you might need. The location is spectacular. I could live on the porch and watch the sun go down, the dolphins play out on reach, and the birds and boats fly by. We love getting together with old friends, cooking wonderful meals, playing music and getting much needed naps. The water is also amazingly swimmable for Northern Maine."

"This home is very nice both inside and out. Jennifer has provided everything you require for a memorable vacation. The location provides privacy and at the same time it is close to Blue Hill, Castine, and Stonington, all of which are great places to spend a few hours enjoying the scenic harbors and boats. Camp Stream Point Lane is a super place to unwind and enjoy."

"My husband and I were looking for a quiet, rejuvenating vacation in a beautiful setting where we could relax, read, explore outdoors, and eat good seafood! We found a little piece of heaven here. We couldn’t recommend this place more highly. The Woods Pond retreat is gorgeously situated on its own, down a dirt drive, nestled in the quiet woods. The owners (who met us on our arrival and were available should we have needed anything during our stay) have built a beautiful and comfortable house with such care and attention to detail. An unexpected treat were the skylights above the bed – nothing like waking up in the morning surrounded by the view of blue and sunny skies. The screened gazebo a few yards from the house became one of my favorite places at any time of day to read, write or just contemplate the sun streaking through the trees and the shimmering water of the pond. The nearby Activity Shop made renting a canoe a breeze, and we enjoyed many sunset excursions on the pond, watching the ospreys and the loons. It was so tranquil, the house felt very removed and yet was conveniently located – less than five minutes to the supermarket, and a few minutes more into the lovely town of Blue Hill. Acadia was not far away, but we found so many hikes and things to explore all around the Blue Hill peninsula, we ditched plans to join the fray there and took advantage of the peacefulness and stunning beauty around us. I wish I could bottle the unbelievable fragrance of warm pine and salt water. This area is a mecca of organic farming, small batch breweries and coffee roasteries, lobsters, blueberry fields, coastal inlets, and the absolutely friendliest people we’ve met anywhere (and we live in the notoriously friendly mid-west). A highlight of our trip was the lovely concerts we attended at the Kniesel Hall Chamber Music Festival. We are now members of the Blue Hill Heritage Trust and have our own library cards, so we certainly hope to return to this incredibly special place."
