"The cottage was perfect, the hosts friendly and accomodating, and the views better than spectacular. We visited the Reversing Falls in Pembroke, The Salmon hatcheries and research centers in Columbia Falls and East Machias, another clam hatchery on Wass Island, hiking trails from Gouldsboro to Lubec. Great location. Will return. Sooooo much to do, so little time. Can't beat DownEast Maine and the people who live there."

"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."

"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."

"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!!!!"
