  • Very Nice Cottage and Owner

    "This beautiful cottage was designed and built by the owner Ray and his wife. It is open and airy and even better than the pictures. The cottage was perfectly cleaned when we arrived and stocked with everything that we needed for our stay. Ray greeted us as we pulled up, let us unload our gear, and then came by to tell us about the cottage, and the area. He really went the extra mile for us, and that alone is a major reason to recommend this cottage. There is a second cottage on the property that the owner use, so they are generally there if you need them. The cottage is located across a two lane road from the oceanfront, and a kind neighbor lets you cross his property to access the rocky beach. In the morning you can hear the lobster boats going out. During our first couple of days here, we did not feel the need to drive anywhere. There are two nature areas within an easy walk from the cottage, and the walks provided there kept us occupied. Bar Harbor, Lubec, and Corea are all an easy drive away for outings. There is also a good grocery store, and a great Mexican restaurant in Milbridge. Don't expect your cell phone to work here, and the provided wi-fi was pretty weak. But, you can walk up to the entrance of the hike up Pigeon Hill, and you will get cell phone data access."

  • 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."

  • Our Second Stay As Nice As Our First

    "This is our second year staying in Laura's family's cottage on Gouldsboro Bay, and we hope not the last. It is just as we like it, a bit off the beaten path, a bit rustic but with all the conveniences, oceanfront with a nice view, quiet, and a screened porch - exactly right. Walked with the dog almost every day back to Rogers Point Road, then left out on to the point to the nice cobble beach looking out the Bay. Also highly recommend the hikes a short drive away at Petit Manan Point, in the National Wildlife Refuge, with dogs welcome on leash. Hoping to return to this Gouldsboro Bay camp next year!"

  • Highly Recommended!

    "Phenomenal vacation spot! The cottage is so pretty and clean and fresh, the deck is so relaxing, the yard is so huge, the view is so phenomenal, the water is so beautiful and the owners are so warm and friendly and accommodating! Jim and Sue have created an oasis in this quaint and peaceful cottage, minutes from the grocery store and delicious restaurants! :) We highly recommend the hike to Pigeon Hill and Jim's whale watching boat trip!"
