"We had the most wonderful time at Ripley Neck cottage! This was our first time renting a house in Maine, and we were seeking something fairly remote and away from the crowds, but still accessible to Acadia and other beautiful places along the coast. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The view from the cottage was unbelievably gorgeous, as stunning as anything else we saw on the Maine coast. What an extraordinary experience to watch the sun rise over the water each morning and to come back to a spotlessly clean and comfortable home in the evening! The cottage has all the amenities you will need for cooking, and George was friendly, professional and available to answer our questions. We can't recommend Ripley Neck Cottage highly enough."

"First off, had great communication with Phil (owner). After we booked he sent out a welcome packet with information on the area, places to visit and eat. This Jonesport/Beals vacation house makes a great "base camp" with day trips we took to Lubec/Campobello, Eastport and Bar Harbor. The house was very clean and comfortable with a million dollar view. I work nights and was always up around 3am.....this was perfect to see the lobster boats heading out for the day with the majestic sun rises starting up over the islands and reach. Our day trips ended up running into the late evening so we always found great places to eat in Machias or Ellsworth on the way back from our day tripping adventures. We did manage to get one order in at the the Bayview drive up .....totally worth it! A must stop on the way to Jonesport/Beals is the Old Creamery Antique mall in Ellsworth especially if you have an hour or 2 to kill before check in time. I was stationed here 25 years ago and area hasn't changed much since then let alone the last 100 years? I would definatly stay here again and can't wait for my next trip back!"

Wonderful rental, all necessities of home provided
"This home near the East Machias River is one of the best rentals we have ever stayed at in the last thirty years. We hope to return in two years for another two - four week stay. It is centrally located for trips north to Canada and south to Bar Harbor. Machias has a great festival in August. Lobster is available from the lobster pounds and from fishermen; the Hartnett's even cook the lobster for you. The house is stocked with everything you need for a comfortable vacation. The landlords are gracious and helpful. The flowers are more than beautiful around the property."

"We chose to spend our Honeymoon at Boyden Lake on Kendall Farm in Perry, Maine.
Looking for a quiet getaway with privacy and beautiful surroundings we were drawn in by the photo of Wildflower Cottage. We actually booked our stay at Watercress Cottage because Watercress was not available....we arrived in the pitch black of night and were greeted by twinkling lightening bugs, crooning loons and an insatiable curiosity of what daylight would bring. When we awoke, our hearts were smiling. The beauty of the day brought us a crystal clear glistening lake, steps from our cottage, two whimsical ducks (Garlic and Dill) greeting us with a morning "hello" and so much to explore on and off the property. Our cottage offered charm and comfort, our deck and dock offered us a meditative sense of joy to be so closely intertwined with the beauty of nature.
Our lovely host, Georgie, offered us a home away from home that we could barely bring ourselves to leave at the end of the week. We drove back to Connecticut and chatted the entire way about how truly blissful the week was. We can honestly say, this was the best week of our lives. (and it wasn't just the honeymoon talking!)
We will be back over and over again, leaving may only get harder and harder :)"
