"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."

"Our third year in Cutler and again at Sea Ledges. It seems like home to us. The folks we deal with for lobster and clams know our name and treat us like one of the family. All the people in this part of Maine are the friendliest people we have ever met and we have traveled the world as Airline pilot and Flight attendant. Of course Helen's in Machias, Frank's in Lubec and the Chowder House are great places to eat, but we found another place that is typical of this part of the country. As you drive into Machias just past the Gulf Station, on your left you will see a shack with people lined up in front of it, The Riverside take out. STOP! The food is out of this world and there are places to sit and have a lunch by the water. All the places that have outside seating are dog friendly. The two guys that run the Riverside fixed Bailey our Chocolate Lab, a cup of ice cream that we almost fought him for. We had our family visit us for couple of days and they loved their short stay. When we left, we had a nice chat with Julie and Mike who are the managers, and it was saying good by to family and good friends. When you visit this part of Maine, you not only have a wonderful time, you will have a wonderful experience."

"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."

"My fiance and I, our little dog and my mother enjoyed a fantastic stay at Cape Split. The homeowners greeted us and immediately made us feel very comfortable and right at home, they are such incredibly nice people! We absolutely loved the remote location, peacefulness of nature and the breathtaking views and surroundings. We saw some unforgettable sunsets followed by star-filled night skies. It was an amazing escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - it's like we were on another planet. The house was well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay and was filled with sweet little treasures in every room. The grounds boasted gorgeous flowers all around, beautiful flower boxes and magical little hummingbirds. The fenced in area was perfect for our little dog, she loved exploring and we loved the security of knowing she was fenced in. We enjoyed fresh lobster which were able to buy right off the nearby boats, yum! We found it easy enough to travel to other areas such as Bar Harbor, where we spent an afternoon. My boyfriend actually proposed to me during our stay - so needless to say we will never forget this trip.
The only constructive feedback that we have is that the mattresses were not comfortable. Other than that it was a perfect trip and we highly recommend staying here. This place is truly magical and is surrounded by natural beauty everywhere you look! Thanks for sharing it J&D!"
