"I have always wanted to share the beauty and magic of my birth state with my friends from afar. We searched long and hard for the most idllic accommodations and decided on this island get away with 3 other families. Every expectation was exceeded. Gigi and Matt were the most gracious hosts. Adventures included clam digging, harvesting mussels, lobster bake on the rocks, scenic boat excursions & fairy house construction along an enchanted moss covered trail. Gigi had exceptional patience with the children who wanted to help her in the kitchen at every moment. They published the daily menu, set the table, baked cookies and made pizza together. The food she prepared for us was delicious & healthy. We highly recommend this vacation destination. It was an amazing week."

"We arrived to find a spotless house in an amazing location. As pictured and described in the listing, this house is located right on the quiet side of Camden Harbor; as you look out the back door, you can see downtown Camden and the active waterfront. The waterfront for this property is private with a lawn that leads right down to the water and to a private dock. The walk to town is surprisingly short and we were able to leave our car parked in the drive on the days we were exploring town.
This home is conveniently located near Route 1 and other minor highways which will take you to the area's attractions, including Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park, Megunticook Lake, and other coastal towns. Camden has enough to offer that you wouldn't necessarily need to go elsewhere, however: there are restaurants for all tastes and a small grocery in walking distance that has nearly everything!! There are galleries and shops and sightseeing ventures right in town. It's a great little New England town.
There is a beautiful breeze that blows through the home when doors and windows are open. One minor negative is that the door to the deck does not have a screen, so, if left open, you may have some unwanted insects. We are from Massachusetts and there seemed to be fewer insects in Maine, so we weren't particularly bothered by this.
The home is kept in amazing condition and is very well-appointed with everything you need and even things you didn't realize you needed! We used the laundry even though we did not expect to and found the basement in such a clean state. There were fans and air conditioners for a hot day but honestly, the windows and doors provided us adequate relief in the 70F to 85F temperatures.
The owner contacted us a few days before our travel and provided all of the information we required. He had us inform him when we arrive and even checked in with us mid-week to make sure all was well and to see if we needed anything.
This is definitely a home we would consider returning to in the future."

"Quiet comfortable antique Maine farmhouse with European vibe.
Off the beaten path but within scenic drives to surrounding peninsulas.
Birch Point State Park, Owls Head recommended.
Artisan pizza can pick up on way back "home" in Waldoboro.
Waterman's Lobster for best soft shell and great crab roll.
Olson house for a stroll over farmland and taste of Wyeth inspiration
Rockland Rockport and Camden for quintessential Maine coast and village activities.
Or just stay hang out at farmhouse in Friendship and soak in silence in a secluded but not isolated location. On beautiful country walking road. If you want privacy, just ask owners if anyone will be on other side of house during your stay.
Owners make it easy to rent and welcome you with nice libations in fridge and supply basics such as coffee and spices for home cooking if needed."

"House overlooks Owls Head Harbor - very nice view. The hosts were very gracious and accomodating. Unfortunately, we arrived at the start of a four day Nor'easter. But it was still a very enjoyable stay. If I can ever get back up there, I would enjoy another stay at this location."
