  • 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!"

  • 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!)"

  • Great family vacation

    "Great stay at Sunrise Point. Cottage is perfect and has a beautiful view on the bay. The harbour across the bay allows for viewing of daily lobster fishing activities. Within an hours (roughly) drive to must see destinations - Schoodic Point, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbour, shopping in Bangor. The cottage was very clean - beds, bathrooms, everything. You won't be disappointed booking at Sunrise Point!"

  • 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."
