"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."

"This is a beautiful home and location to spend your Holiday. Close your eyes and think of all the picturesque photos you have seen of the Lobster Fishing Communities in Maine...open your eyes, you are now at your vacation home Perio Point, Beals Island.
This is not a tourist community, this is the Maine we all search for, and if we are lucky enough we find such a wonderful place.
The location is perfect for day trips from Acadia National Park to Lubec and Eastport and all the hidden gems along the way. Hidden Gem, yes that is what this beautiful peaceful home is. We vacationed with another couple, and the house felt like home, bright comfortable, neat and clean. It has everything we needed and more. This vacation flew by, we truly did not want to leave. We all had such a fantastic time we have planned a return trip next year.
Phil is a wonderful host, he guided us thru the easy rental process and supplied us with a wealth of information for the area. Enjoy your glorious lobsters and crab rolls, while you soak in the view, we certainly did. This is the perfect place to relax, explore and recharge.
As a wise man told us "... Life does not get any better than this ... "
Thank you Phil for sharing your lovely home with folks who love Maine as much as we do. We are counting the days until our next Maine Holiday."

"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."

"Our third year spending a week in this family cottage on Gouldsboro Bay, and have already asked Laura to book us for 2016. Quiet, rustic, oceanfront with a nice view and breezes off the bay through the screened porch even on hot days, just the way we like it. We recommend the Darthia Farmstand in Gouldsboro, Painted Pepper Farm's phenomenal goat's milk gelato, and the local farmer's markets (Milbridge or Machias) for fresh blueberry pies. Hikes nearby at Petit Manan Point, in the National Wildlife Refuge, with dogs welcome on leash, and up Pigeon Hill (on the road out to Petit Manan) are perfect for hot summer days. Looking forward to next year!"
