  • Spectacular views & history!!

    "Enjoyed every second exploring this wonderful property. My husband got with a couple of locals who offered to bring him fishing. He had such great time he's making plans with the gentleman on our next trip out here. Our teenage girls had a blast! Having wireless internet at night kept them busy with the latest gossip so their not missing friends back home. Our 2 little boys Wolfie and Lil bull LOVED sampling everything that washed up. It was their first time to a beach not a lake house and they played all day long. We also had the chance to meet the most adorable seal we named Peeper! The 5 days we stayed here he would always swim near us while on the row boat. One day he got so close he spooked us and himself. It was such an incredible feeling and experience we will remember. The house was gorgeous and spacious. The pics don't show how extremely beautiful all the views are. I loved the history in the house between the photo books, art by Ann Rhodin through out the house, and the Bongo board has been placing lots of smiles and heart filled memories for 50 yrs. We all had a great vacation. Would suggest one thing, maybe place a private property sign at the beach where rose path leads to the house. Some locals must use the trails at the house so if your a group of women or have kids playing in yard while your at the beach you might feel a little uneasy. I'd like to thank the Rhodins for letting others enjoy this oasis and Donna for always getting back to us."

  • Peaceful

    "We loved staying here. The house looks exactly like the pictures. We spent a lot of time just sitting and watching the bay, the tide going in and out, the birds and even a few minke whales and harbor seals. Clarks Head Ledge, the rocks visible from the house, was fascinating to watch appearing and disappearing as the tide came in and went out. We loved how the house was decorated and were very comfortable. You need to be looking for a peaceful quiet place to enjoy this house. Not much to do in town except boat rides and ice cream. Bring books and binoculars."

  • Amazing!

    "My family stayed at Life on the Ledge and we had an amazing time! The house is absolutely gorgeous beyond what the pics show online. Jim and April were so helpful, kind and patient with our questions and they went out of their way to make sure we had a great vacation. Both are quite knowledgeable on the history of the island and graciously gave us a boat tour of the area. We have rented through VRBO for quite sometime, and I can honestly say this was our best vacation ever! The location is breathtaking! I highly recommend visiting Maine, and definitely recommend Life on the Ledge. You can sit outside watch the lobster boats and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of your surroundings, hike the island or visit so many great places nearby. We visited Jasper Beach, Rogue Bluffs State Park, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, Acadia National Park (amazing!,) and Lubec but the greatest highlight was returning to Life on the Ledge everyday."

  • Another wonderful stay at the WaterColor Cottage

    "This is my second time staying at the WaterColor Cottage, which I loved the first time, when I was with my brother and nephew, and I loved it this time, too! The first time was during a heat wave a year ago, and still it was more than comfortable. This year the weather was idyllic and the cottage is rustic without being primitive, artful without being fussy, and everything was lovely and comfortable. For conscious and conscientious people. A true retreat."
