A Great Family VacationThat Has Something for Everybody
"My family members range in age from 6 to 65. The last night of our vacation we all sat around the lovely dining table overlooking Alden's beautiful yard. Each of us told what we liked most about the trip. The two 6-year olds (one boy, one girl) liked catching crabs and snails off of Alden's dock.....and playing croquet at the Burnt Island Lighthouse. My granddaughter also liked picking blueberries (her favorite) from Alden's garden. My 15 year old granddaughter loved climbing the rocks at Ocean Point. One 10 year old grandson loved playing hide and seek in Alden's yard, the other the Whale Watch. One of my sons loved kayaking the best, the other liked fishing. My daughter-in-law loved the fact that the quaint town was within walking distance of the house (as we all did). I loved it all, but particularly enjoyed rising early to enjoy the peace and quiet of the charming house and gaze out the window. One morning I even saw an eagle! After initially greeting us and sharing some very interesting history about the place, Alden and Karen left us alone. My family and I always felt "at home" there."

"Quaint log cabin, perfect location for exploring Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta, Bath areas (check out the great yarn shop in Bath- Halcyon yarn). Very comfortable for our family of four plus a small dog. Owner is a local, very helpful, and gave us great tips on exploring. Property in great condition, well maintained. Owners description is accurate. We spent a lot of time on the large deck and enjoyed dining outside. We were pleasantly surprised that bugs were not a problem at all during our visit. Barely used the bug spray. Kids enjoyed catching frogs in the tiny brook. Great hiking trails everywhere. Enjoyed a fishing trip/lobster catch with Sweet Action Charters in Boothbay (owner is Dan and tailored our trip to our kids- very reasonable prices). We enjoyed nearby high school tennis courts and 2 indoor courts at really nice Boothbay YMCA- great indoor pools there too. Fun finding lots of sea glass on the rocky shores. Try the Vietnamese restaurants spring rolls when you get tired of lobster!!"

"We recently stayed at Heron Cove and for the most part were very pleased with the house and surrounding area. The house was equipped as stated except for a lack of good size bowls and dish towels. There were plenty of bath towels and bed linens. Our main complaint was the cleanliness of the house. Lisa if you are paying someone to come in and clean between guests than I suggest you find another company. The black mold around the windows and on the fridge seal was not good. My son upon arrival had to start taking medicine for this. I would suggest a dehumidifier for the basement as the dampness and odor made it impossible to stay down there. Also there was a broken rocking chair on the porch and you have let the bushes grow so that it was hard to get down to the water, (not like picture). The house otherwise fit our needs and it was quiet and nice to be able to let the kids play outside without worrying about them going out into the road. Neighbors were nice enough to let us put our kayak in from their property. It was very relaxing, with lots of wonderful sights. The view from the deck is beautiful. Would recommend this home if the few things I mentioned were addressed"
