"Beautifully restored and decorated farmhouse that had everything we could have wanted. It is close to many great activities in down east Maine and New Brunswick, yet private. We enjoyed cooking dinners in the big kitchen and spending peaceful evening on the front porch. It was nice having two kayaks available to venture out on the water.
The amount of information and suggestions provided by Tom was a great asset. We used the printed information or brochures in the house nearly everyday of our stay."

"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."

"What a great place to escape life and relax! The cottage is just as described and the views are amazing. I got up early just to watch the sunrise from the deck. We celebrated our 25th anniversary and picked a wonderful spot to mark the occasion. We traveled up and down the coast and took in all Maine has to offer, from Bar Harbor/ Acadia to Campobello Island and Whale Watching, true beauty. Spent several days at the cottage doing nothing, I forgot how good that feels. The rocky shore line with the pine trees mixed in made a perfect retreat for us. Thanks so much for sharing your perfect escape place, hope to return someday!"

"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."
