"The Ashgrove was a great find. Nestled in the woods, it was secluded, yet very close to all of the best in the area. From inside, it makes you feel like you are in a tree house. We found ourselves spending more and more time on our peaceful, private, tree shaded deck as the week went by. Also loved the short stroll down the fern and spruce framed foot path to the private rocky beach with a bottle of wine at sunset each day. We felt so safe here we never even locked the car or the cabin door. Absolutely incredible weather. Sunny and 75 with cool nights. Perfect for sleeping later than normal, we almost felt guilty for being so relaxed. There was no cable TV here and it turned out we were glad not to have the temptation. Lucy does have 40+ movies to choose from and wi-fi, so were able to stay in touch with the world when needed. Also found a radio station out of Portland (107.5) that played the best mix of classic rock I have heard. We left the tuner on the entire time we were there. John and Lucy were great hosts, always willing to offer advice when asked but still gave us the privacy we expected. As for sightseeing, we went a different direction every day. Acadia National Park, Mt. Battie, Point Lookout, Highway 1 down the coast, wine tastings inland and a sunset sailing out of Camden harbor. Camden was our favorite, It looked like a postcard. Plenty of fine restaurants to choose from but we enjoyed bringing Hannafords ceations back to the cabin for a private dinner for two. You might find a fancy B&B for two or three times the cost if that's your thing, but we have stayed in over 30 VRBO properties all over the U.S. and this was probably the best value of them all. Ashgrove is a real hidden gem. Thanks, Lucy and John, for a great late-summer week!"

Nice, comfortable and unconventional house near the Maine coast
"We were travelling with two adults and a boy (14) and enjoyed our stay at the Souler house. The location is quiet and at night it gets almost completely dark, yet Wiscasset is near enough. We missed sitting outside, though, because there is no real terrace. It is not easy to find hiking trails either; a map or some descriptions of nearby walks would come in handy."

"Driving on Back Cove Road to Jutta's Place, we knew our vacation would be a dream; as we turned onto Ice Pond Road, we passed under tall evergreens, overlooking Ice Pond, but to our right was the beautiful sea. When we entered Trixi's and Lynn's home we felt welcomed by the loveliness of the furnishings, the cleanlinesness of every room, the spectacular views, and the attention to the comfort of their visitors. Each day, we walked the lovely roads, and though we planned many excursions, we fulfilled only a few--the wind chimes hanging in the tree near the two Adirondack chairs called to us, so our adventures were watching the lobstermen checking their traps, osprey fishing, and hummingbirds beating their wings right near us. This will be our "go to" home away from home. Thank you so much, Trixi and Lynn for sharing your special retreat."
