"Our third year spending a week in this family cottage on Gouldsboro Bay, and have already asked Laura to book us for 2016. Quiet, rustic, oceanfront with a nice view and breezes off the bay through the screened porch even on hot days, just the way we like it. We recommend the Darthia Farmstand in Gouldsboro, Painted Pepper Farm's phenomenal goat's milk gelato, and the local farmer's markets (Milbridge or Machias) for fresh blueberry pies. Hikes nearby at Petit Manan Point, in the National Wildlife Refuge, with dogs welcome on leash, and up Pigeon Hill (on the road out to Petit Manan) are perfect for hot summer days. Looking forward to next year!"

"We couldn't have been happier with our stay at the Downeast Retreat. The house was exactly as pictured and in addition to being lovely, was clean, comfortable, and well equipped. It was a perfect base for exploring or for simply hanging out and enjoying the beautiful setting. Ray and Jo were wonderfully welcoming -- we would love to come back."

"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. It was magical from the first moment we arrived. In the evening we easily lit the wall mounted gas lights and cranked up the old Victrola to listen to some vintage jazz 78s while we cooked dinner in the well equipped kitchen. You don't see or hear neighbors from the cottage. It's like your own private corner of Maine with gulls wheeling above and the sound of lobster boats puttering around in the bay. And the sea air mingled with the spicy scent of cedars and pines, is absolutely intoxicating. This was our favorite rental ever and we definitely plan to visit again soon."
