Recent Down East property reviews

  • Beautiful Country Retreat

    "We were looking for a quiet place in Down East Maine, away from the hustle and bustle, a place where we could see the stars at night. We were not disappointed! Our stay at Wildflower Cottage was just what we needed. Georgie did everything to make our visit relaxing, and she couldn't have been more welcoming. From her homemade treats, to her effervescent personality, to her sweet pets, Pitter and Seamus, we felt a part of this special place! We will definitely return often!"

  • This home saved our summer vacation!

    "This is a long overdue review, and truthfully, I didn't want to write one because I want to keep this place a secret. This home was a lifesaver for our family of 7. We had just stayed our 2nd miserable night at another rental in another town and were desperate to find a new place. We would've had a miserable ten-day vacation had we not stumbled upon this place the day before we rented. As soon as we drove up the driveway, everyone was beyond ecstatic that we made the decision to leave the original rental home. It was a very spacious, brand new home, complete with 2 sets of kitchen (upstairs for formal, downstairs for patio dining), generous lawn for playing frisbee and croquet. The owner's family lived nearby and the cousin who took care of us was a wonderful, welcoming face to the property. In short, we were so happy with the beautiful property that we ended up seeing less of Downeast (and Canada) than we had planned. I think my parents were kind of relieved not to be stuck driving around from place to place anyway. Having been to that area 4 summers now, they loved spending a week just sitting on the porch and walking down to their very own beach and kayaking everyday right outside of the home. We were honored to have been the very first guests and I hope we will be coming back to rent this place. It was a calm, elegant, and magical Maine summer just as it should be for everyone."

  • Sweet Little Cottage

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this sweet little cottage on the water. The listing was very accurate and the photos reflect exactly what you get for the rate. We enjoyed the seclusion as well as the ability to interact with others in the small town. Bar Harbor (approximately 45 min away by car) was a beautiful town with lots of sights and activity. The property is well maintained and VERY clean! A great value for the money. The owners are very helpful, but certainly not intrusive. I would definitely reccommend this property to anyone who would like to get away from it all!!"

  • Very Nice Cottage and Owner

    "This beautiful cottage was designed and built by the owner Ray and his wife. It is open and airy and even better than the pictures. The cottage was perfectly cleaned when we arrived and stocked with everything that we needed for our stay. Ray greeted us as we pulled up, let us unload our gear, and then came by to tell us about the cottage, and the area. He really went the extra mile for us, and that alone is a major reason to recommend this cottage. There is a second cottage on the property that the owner use, so they are generally there if you need them. The cottage is located across a two lane road from the oceanfront, and a kind neighbor lets you cross his property to access the rocky beach. In the morning you can hear the lobster boats going out. During our first couple of days here, we did not feel the need to drive anywhere. There are two nature areas within an easy walk from the cottage, and the walks provided there kept us occupied. Bar Harbor, Lubec, and Corea are all an easy drive away for outings. There is also a good grocery store, and a great Mexican restaurant in Milbridge. Don't expect your cell phone to work here, and the provided wi-fi was pretty weak. But, you can walk up to the entrance of the hike up Pigeon Hill, and you will get cell phone data access."
