  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • best vacation ever!

    "This was my Downeast dream vacation! I've been coming to this area since I was a kid, but had never stayed right on the ocean before. Tom and Cathy's house was the perfect place -- beautiful and comfortable, well appointed with all the amentities I could ask for (nice dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer), very clean and well-maintained; and most important of all, it's in a gorgeous, peaceful location with a great view. I felt so at home in this lovingly restored farmhouse, smelling the sea air and the sweetgrass; watching the birds from the screened-in front porch in the early morning with my coffee. The location is great for day trips as well; Eastport, Machias, Quoddy Head, The Reversing Falls right down the road...I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves nature and wants to get off the beaten path. Thanks Tom and Cathy!"

  • Remote paradise

    "Beautifully maintained cottage nestled among dense white birch and spruce forest with spectacular ocean view and sand spur beach. Peaceful and quiet and we were enthralled with the amazing night skies and star gazing that Downeast is famous for. Enjoyed the close proximity to our excursions- 1 hour drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor, 2 hours to Lubec and Campobello Island and 4 hours away from Fundy National Park, New Brunswick (passports required). Enjoyed great dining from Bar Harbors many fine restauarants as well as Ruth & Wimpy's Diner in Hancock and 44 Degrees North in nearby Milbridge. Cottage was comfortably furnished with everything in good repair. Owner George was always available by telephone if needed but never intrusive."
