  • Peaceful retreat on the water's edge

    "This is a very special place, quiet, off the beaten path, and right on the water. Spectacular sunsets, sun porch a great spot for all weather, accommodations were spacious and comfortable. Loved the cooker!! I appreciate the owners gentle impact on the environment, the solar system, and live lightly message. It was so beautiful at the cottage that I didn't venture out much in my car to explore the vicinity. Instead, lots of walking locally along the rocks, woods, etc. There is a new house being built on the point past the cottage, so the unspoiled property beyond has been cleared and will be habited. Still, you cannot see it from the cottage and only evidence would be cars driving past and possible alternate walking routes. I will definitely return!!"

  • Terrific Spot for Quiet Vacation with Superb View

    "We wanted a quiet place close to the water that was near favorite hiking places (Great Wass Is., Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge, Bold Coast & Campobello Is.) and this was it! We spent a wonderful week with wonderful weather, breakfast on the deck in the warming sun every morning, watching eider ducks and an occasional loon floating and diving near shore, walks on Sandy River Beach & out to Bar Island. The cottage is very well equipped (kitchen had everything I needed to make most of our meals there). Though there are cottages close by on either side, they are screened by a hedge of trees and bushes so we had plenty of privacy. And the view of the sunrise is spectacular, not to mention the view at all times. This place exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend it."

  • Outstanding Again!

    "We recently had the pleasure of staying at Somerled for our second visit. We absolutely loved it the first time, and I was wondering if maybe we were going to be disappointed this time. To say that someplace is even better the second time around definitely describes this wonderful, unique home. Since we knew what the area has to offer ahead of time, this made our stay even more relaxing and enjoyable. Words cannot completely describe what you will experience here. If you are searching for someplace peaceful, quiet, and full of nature, this is your answer. The home is located where you will not hear any cars, and the only people you will see are the lobstermen as they pull and set their traps. Seals played in front of the house everyday we were there too! Complete relaxation! As I mentioned in my earlier review, the worst part is having to leave. The long trip we made from Indiana to Somerled is so well worthwhile. We hope to return again in the future, but hope to stay longer next time. The hosts of this home are absolutely wonderful! We WILL return! Thank you for sharing your amazing home!"

  • Amazing!

    "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."
