"My wife and two college/high school-age sons spent a beautiful relaxing week. My favorite activity: sit on the porch with a good book and the gorgeous views of the bay and out to the ocean -- sometimes busy but not disturbing with lobsterman and other boats, plus ducks and osprey diving for fish out front, couple of seals out in the harbor, and what I think was a mink or otter late one afternoon. The photos are accurate, it's truly beautiful. Kitchen is a bit rustic, again as advertised, but everything works and it's fully stocked with all the kitchen gear you need. Upstairs bedrooms also rustic but charming and clean. Towels/linens provided and plentiful. We enjoyed easy day trips to Freeport for LL Bean and Rockland to see friends -- and Red's in Wiscasset is a must for lobster roll and fried clams (standing in line is half the fun). Best meal on Southport: Newagen Seaside Inn -- and Robinson's Wharf is good for lobster -- both no more than 5 minutes from the house. The landlord was very accessible and helpful, no problems at all. Still dreaming of the view off the porch while sweltering in DC writing this!"

"From the moment we began our stay at Eleanor and Pete's apartment we knew we had hit the jackpot! From an introductory tour to acquaint us with the goings on in the area, to the boat ride, our hosts were terrific. We could be alone when we wanted privacy, but could sit and talk at other times. We enjoyed a lobster dinner on their deck.
The apartment was spotless and the kitchen was furnished with everything we needed. We heartily recommend this quiet and peaceful place.
Convenient to places of interest."

"My family and friends just enjoyed the best, most relaxing vacation we have seen in a long time. I am an amateur chef and the kitchen was to die for. Fully stocked with everything you need! The home sets up perfectly with several "spaces" for relaxing, firewatching, hot tub, reading, conversing, admiring the flowers and eating! The location is perfect: waterfront with privacy and a 5 minute walk to town. We had fresh flowers from the garden in each room. Truly amazing the work and love Karen and Alden dedicate to their garden! We enjoyed 9 out of 10 days without rain! The day it did rain, no big deal, snuggled by the fire with a book! All the firewood provided by Alden (and it was dry!) I have stayed in the area for 7 of the last 8 years and this was by far the best home we have rented. We felt welcome and at home: Serenity!
Thank you Alden and Karen (and Katrina the cat!)"
