  • Modern log cabin with all the amenities!

    "We planned a visit to Maine as I was born there. I was an Army brat and my Dad was stationed at the northern tip of Maine. My husband had never been to Maine. The house was clean and well laid out. The people in the town were very friendly and it had some really great restaurants. The trip was perfect, the house was beautiful, I would go back that should say it all! The owners were great to deal with and we had no problems!"

  • Obvious that the owners go out of their way to ensure their guests have a wonderful stay

    "It is a beautifully renovated house with lots of modern features and details from the heated floors in the bathrooms to the modern updated kitchen. The owners were generous in providing everything we could possibly need in the kitchen, laundry, linens, towels - and all in practically new condition. From our past experiences renting homes, this is rare. It is obvious the owners make the extra effort to ensure that their guests are comfortable and have everything they need for their stay. There was even fresh fire wood placed in the fire ring out back waiting for us! Every room in the house is furnished and decorated in a way that invites you to want to stay and linger. Every window in the house has a view. Every bedroom has a view of the water. The back two bedrooms have the most amazing views overlooking the water right from your bed. Imagine waking up to incredible views of the sun rising over the water every morning, or just lying there in the middle of the day thinking you might take a nap but finding that you just can't stop taking in the incredible panoramic views. Every bed was comfortable, including the top of the line sleeper sofa. The only shades on the main level are for the three windows that surround this sleeper sofa in the corner of the room. It was all that was needed. Our elderly family member who has mobility issues said it was an exceptional sofa bed and well designed bathroom. Our elderly family member even found a chair among the comfy seating area to be high enough and supportive enough from which to maneuver in and out easily. The house sits right in the middle of a working fishing community and just feet from the edge of the water. It also sits very close to nearby houses, working docks and a tidal lobster pound facility. Despite the close proximity to these things, it was very quiet and we felt like we had plenty of privacy. Only the birds in the morning were loud. Our elderly family member loved being entertained by this quiet activity near the house when the rest of us left for hiking adventures. Often we never heard the neighbors head out on their fishing boats (it is that quiet!). Sometimes we could hear the church bell tolling on the hour. We loved it all. Definitely takes you to a different time and place - and this beautiful house made us want to stay forever. Owner also provides lots of recommendations on where to eat, go, see and do... (all good!)"

  • 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."

  • Awesome

    "We had a great week. Clean, warm, and cozy and right on the ocean. Being off the grid was an added bonus. The caretaker takes great care of the property and explained everything when we arrived. We definitely will make it an annual event."
