  • Loved This Cottage!

    "My family and I really enjoyed the cottage. My kids especially loved that the beach was within walking distance so they could go every day when it was low tide. I would definitely recommend this cottage to any family looking for a quiet, restful beach vacation. We were able to mark "Eating lobster in Maine" off my mom's bucket list! We enjoyed eating at the Black Harpoon, The Happy Clam, Harjula's icecream and the School House Bakery. We bought live lobster from Miller's and they were deee-licious! :) Jeanine was very nice and helpful and worked with us so we could bring my parents' two yorkies with us also."

Homeowners are fantastic, helpful and attentive for all our needs. Very knowledgeable, and willing to suggest day trips etc. Wonderful place to stay!!"

  • Great "away from it all" vacation!

    "Our family (5 adults and 6 kids under the age of 10) enjoyed our summer stay in Lakeville. The home and location were great for our big family. We were afraid that 1.5 baths would be a challenge but it worked out fine and we had plenty of room both inside the house and outside. The lake is a short walk from the house and the kids enjoyed picking blueberries by the lake and playing in the water. There's lots of woods to explore and my boys enjoyed the "hikes" we went on. Lakeville is a good distance but yet central from the "touristy" areas but we did take a few day trips. Acadia (about 2-2.5 hours), Eastport (about 2.0 hours), and Bangor (about 1.5 hours). You'll want to buy your groceries before arrival as it's about 45 minutes to a grocery store (in Lincoln), but once you're settled, you have everything you need for your home away from home! Bob and Debbie were great to work with and we couldn't have asked for better "landlords"! Our only complaint was we didn't get to see a moose! :)"

  • best vacation ever!

    "This was my Downeast dream vacation! I've been coming to this area since I was a kid, but had never stayed right on the ocean before. Tom and Cathy's house was the perfect place -- beautiful and comfortable, well appointed with all the amentities I could ask for (nice dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer), very clean and well-maintained; and most important of all, it's in a gorgeous, peaceful location with a great view. I felt so at home in this lovingly restored farmhouse, smelling the sea air and the sweetgrass; watching the birds from the screened-in front porch in the early morning with my coffee. The location is great for day trips as well; Eastport, Machias, Quoddy Head, The Reversing Falls right down the road...I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves nature and wants to get off the beaten path. Thanks Tom and Cathy!"
