"The Red Barn is a must see beautiful property with walking paths, a pond and wildlife. It is easy access at ground level. It is equipped with all linens ie. towels for beach, sheets and bath towels, and full kitchen which was a plus not to have to bring those items. Close to Cozy Harbor Beach, the general store and a short drive to Boothbay Harbor. It was great to have a campfire and BBQ when we wanted. There is a large field to play in. It is a great place for families. It's very picturesque and private. The owners are very nice people and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again!"

"Good stuff first. We stayed here with my family as sort of a reunion. My Parents, my sister & spouse, my brother & spouse.The house only sleeps six and they are VERY firm about this. No squeezing people in on the couch.That being the case my husband and I stayed with relatives until my brother left (they were only with us part of the week) We moved over on Tuesday.The house is situated on a cliff and views of the ocean are stunning and the house is designed so that you are able to see the ocean from not only the living room(sliders that open onto a deck)but also the master bedroom. the sound of the waves crashing on the cliffs below is deafening. Spent mornings drinking coffee on the deck and If you are up early enough, you will be able to see Lobster boats pulling in traps right in front of you.At night with a glass of wine is even better. Coming home I can honestly say that I missed the sound of the waves very, very badly! We had the good fortune of spectacular weather (only one day of fog) and being able to view many sunrises and moon sets over the water, Gorgeous! I cannot stress enough how healing and magical it is. There is a wood burning fireplace (buy your own firewood) We took advantage of the fireplace on the foggy day and it was very relaxing to have a "stay in" day with a nice fire, it took the chill and the damp out and we enjoyed some old movies. One of the bedrooms has a small library with a nice selection of Books. I will recommend "Lighthouse Horrors" for some good old fashioned scary stories (Perfect reading for being in Maine on vacation with the sound of the waves in the background)The ocean is accessible by means of a steep path to the left of the house & there is a rope rigged up to assist you getting down to the cliffs,spent many hours just laying on the rocks and sunning & reading. Do not advise swimming here as the waves and the currents are too strong. Now the bad;The living room furniture needs updating. It is comfortable but worn.The dishwasher turns on at random,the dryer was not in good working order,TV is ancient &Flat screens are so cheap nowadays.No excuse not to update especially for over $2000.00 a week. The guest bedroom queen mattress needs replacement, old and probably one of the most uncomfortable mattresses my husband and I have ever slept & we traveled all over the world, (all of Europe) They need to update this mattress! Other then this id recommend this property."

"We stayed at this lovely home for a week. We had 4 adults 3 children and 2 dogs and the property had everything we needed and PLENTY of space and comfortable amenities. We were thrilled to find a place that is pet-friendly! We swam, kayaked, clammed at low tide, and paddle boarded off the rocky beach in Atkins Bay. We enjoyed many meals at home - with amazing views from the deck. The kids and dogs enjoyed exploring the terrain and found wild blueberries growing in the backyard. We all slept and hung out very comfortably with room to spare. The climate is fantastic and we enjoyed sleeping with cool breezes coming through the many windows at night. The kids enjoyed downtime watching their favorite shows (cable and wifi easy to connect to). We enjoyed taking walks through the wooded neighborhood. There is ample parking on the property for multiple vehicles and plenty of storage. The property owners go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay and are very easy to get in touch with should you need anything or need to ask for recommendations. There are great restaurants and beaches and convenience shops nearby. Stores: Percy's (postcards and t-shirts) and Bisson's. Restaurants we dined in Spinney's (Phippsburg), The Taste of Maine (Bath), Kelmar's (Boothbay Harbour), the Snack Bar (Small Point), The Five Islands Lobster Co. (Georgetown) - fresh cooked lobsters, BYOB, outdoor dining with gorgeous views- highly recommend!! and Otto's (Portland). Places we visited and highly recommend: Popham Beach State Park- beach pass included with your stay (spacious, pristine beach with treasures galore to be found including sand dollars - climbing on rocky islands at low tide and the clearest ocean I have ever swam in), Fort Popham, Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse (near Portland), LL Bean (Freeport), Boothbay Harbor (quaint with great shops), and Georgetown. Be sure to stop at Shaw's off of Rt 1 in Bath to do your major grocery shopping before you arrive. We highly recommend this property and hope to be back again soon. This is the place to go if you want to relax and create wonderful memories."
