"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."

"Tidewatch was our "home away from home" for a week of family fun and incredible sightseeing. From the second we arrived at the house we knew it was going to be a great vacation. The house was very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was our favorite spot due to the views of the water from the french doors. It is very well equipped with every cooking utensil you could need. The screened porch allows you to open the french doors and enjoy the breeze and ocean air and keeps the house cool. We enjoyed sitting in the screened porch or on the deck and watching the boats. Walking the beach looking for shells and sea glass was relaxing, yet great fun for the four of us. Rogue Bluffs State Park is very close to the house and a beautiful place to visit. We enjoyed day trips to Bar Harbor and to Lubec and Eastport, but hanging out at the house and walking the beach were our favorite things to do. Comfortable furniture and beds made everyone happy! Mike was a great source of information about the area and recommended Helen's restaurant which we all loved. We can't wait to go back to Rogue Bluffs and Tidewatch!"

"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. It was magical from the first moment we arrived. In the evening we easily lit the wall mounted gas lights and cranked up the old Victrola to listen to some vintage jazz 78s while we cooked dinner in the well equipped kitchen. You don't see or hear neighbors from the cottage. It's like your own private corner of Maine with gulls wheeling above and the sound of lobster boats puttering around in the bay. And the sea air mingled with the spicy scent of cedars and pines, is absolutely intoxicating. This was our favorite rental ever and we definitely plan to visit again soon."

"We chose to spend our Honeymoon at Boyden Lake on Kendall Farm in Perry, Maine.
Looking for a quiet getaway with privacy and beautiful surroundings we were drawn in by the photo of Wildflower Cottage. We actually booked our stay at Watercress Cottage because Watercress was not available....we arrived in the pitch black of night and were greeted by twinkling lightening bugs, crooning loons and an insatiable curiosity of what daylight would bring. When we awoke, our hearts were smiling. The beauty of the day brought us a crystal clear glistening lake, steps from our cottage, two whimsical ducks (Garlic and Dill) greeting us with a morning "hello" and so much to explore on and off the property. Our cottage offered charm and comfort, our deck and dock offered us a meditative sense of joy to be so closely intertwined with the beauty of nature.
Our lovely host, Georgie, offered us a home away from home that we could barely bring ourselves to leave at the end of the week. We drove back to Connecticut and chatted the entire way about how truly blissful the week was. We can honestly say, this was the best week of our lives. (and it wasn't just the honeymoon talking!)
We will be back over and over again, leaving may only get harder and harder :)"
