"WOW!! That sums it up! We had a wonderful time and wish we could have spent more time here. What a relaxing place. The trails were fantastic! The views spectacular. Yes, there was fog, and it comes and goes, which only adds to the beauty of this place. Tons of pictures to be taken, on site!! Sleeping with the windows open, especially for us from the hot, drought hit area of the country, was very welcomed. And hearing the splashing waves on the shore was wonderful to hear as we fell asleep each night.
The cottage is secluded, but there are wonderful day trips to enjoy! Our favorite was Campobello. We should have reserved more time to spend there. And the Little River Lobster Company is a must!! Just around the corner in Maine-speak (OK, a 10 mile round trip)! We actually walked down to the dock, and they pulled our fresh lobsters out of the water. YUM!! The cottage is stocked to cook and enjoy them there. A wonderful time.
And a special thanks to Julie and Mike, the caretakers. The BEST!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!"

"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."

"We had the most wonderful time at Ripley Neck cottage! This was our first time renting a house in Maine, and we were seeking something fairly remote and away from the crowds, but still accessible to Acadia and other beautiful places along the coast. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The view from the cottage was unbelievably gorgeous, as stunning as anything else we saw on the Maine coast. What an extraordinary experience to watch the sun rise over the water each morning and to come back to a spotlessly clean and comfortable home in the evening! The cottage has all the amenities you will need for cooking, and George was friendly, professional and available to answer our questions. We can't recommend Ripley Neck Cottage highly enough."

"We spent the week of July 19th at Tidewatch and had a wonderful time. We lived in Machias, ME when our daughters were young. Now with families of their own, they wanted to show their husbands and kids where they spent 8 years growing up from 1982-90. This house was the perfect rental for us for a couple of reasons. First, the 5 bedroom layout couldn't have been any better for the 8 of us and house had everything we needed. Second, without a doubt, was the location. It was down the road from the first house we lived in...which was right past Roques Bluff State Park.... so that brought back great memories. And, with the beach at the end of the back yard, looking for sea glass, rocks, and shells was a favorite pastime for the kids (2 & 5). Our plan was not to spend every day driving somewhere, which we didn't. One day the kids and grandkids spent a day in Bar Harbor, and another day we all went to West Quoddy Head in Lubec and then went for a whale-watching tour (unfortunately they didn't cooperate!). Most of the time was spent relaxing, catching up with old friends, a little bit of fishing, sea kayaking and enjoying some great lobster...cooked right at home. We definitely will be planning a return trip!"
