"My wife and 4 or our relatives stayed in this beautiful house for a week. Our expectations were far exceeded. The owners were very helpful. The local people were outstanding. We almost felt like family in Eastport. I would highly recommended this house and this community for anyone wanting to take a great vacation. Whales, Seals, lots of fish, Lobster, Campobello, the tides. (I posted this once but it has very appeared)"

"My family stayed at Life on the Ledge and we had an amazing time! The house is absolutely gorgeous beyond what the pics show online. Jim and April were so helpful, kind and patient with our questions and they went out of their way to make sure we had a great vacation. Both are quite knowledgeable on the history of the island and graciously gave us a boat tour of the area. We have rented through VRBO for quite sometime, and I can honestly say this was our best vacation ever! The location is breathtaking! I highly recommend visiting Maine, and definitely recommend Life on the Ledge. You can sit outside watch the lobster boats and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of your surroundings, hike the island or visit so many great places nearby. We visited Jasper Beach, Rogue Bluffs State Park, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, Acadia National Park (amazing!,) and Lubec but the greatest highlight was returning to Life on the Ledge everyday."

"What an amazing view - and such a peaceful setting! Rising in the morning to the incredible views and hearing the water lapping the shore when we went to bed at night both accounted for a beautiful setting and the perfect place for us to unwind. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, exploring the rocks and even made a trip into town to pick up some lobster and clams so we could have our own little lobster bake!! 2 nights wasn't nearly enough to fully enjoy this place. It was very comfortable, clean and exactly as described and pictured."

"Beautifully maintained cottage nestled among dense white birch and spruce forest with spectacular ocean view and sand spur beach. Peaceful and quiet and we were enthralled with the amazing night skies and star gazing that Downeast is famous for. Enjoyed the close proximity to our excursions- 1 hour drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor, 2 hours to Lubec and Campobello Island and 4 hours away from Fundy National Park, New Brunswick (passports required). Enjoyed great dining from Bar Harbors many fine restauarants as well as Ruth & Wimpy's Diner in Hancock and 44 Degrees North in nearby Milbridge. Cottage was comfortably furnished with everything in good repair. Owner George was always available by telephone if needed but never intrusive."
