"Our visit was heavenly. The house is charming with touches of a "home" and immaculate. The view of the ocean from every window is breathtaking .the walks every day from right out the front door were fantastic.
Our time at "the little red house" is always magical."

"The Osprey was just what our family hoped for. It was clean, well-equipped, comfortable, and very quaint. The ocean view from the living room was spectacular and we often enjoyed our morning coffee there. The fireplace was wonderful since it was still cool and rainy some June mornings and evenings. There was plenty of space for our family of four (with two teenage sons). The owner, Bill, was very helpful and prompt in answering any questions we had. The neighbors were friendly and welcoming too. Boothbay Harbor was wonderful with lots of shopping, restaurants, and activities. We especially enjoyed the schooner tour with Eastwind and the Navy band at the Opera House. Boothbay is also a close drive to other fun destinations."

"This is an amazing location and home. The pictures simply cannot show how beautiful the main house really is...all the gorgeous wood-ceilings, porches, floors..it is stunning. Afternoon sunshine floods the very comfortable living room, deck and huge screened porch...and you enjoy lovely river views. It is a secluded, yet accessible retreat for nature lovers, readers, artists. Incredibly comfortable and inviting. Four of us stayed in the main house and our young, newly-wed son and daughter-in-law stayed in the sleeping cabin. Because it is not directly on the water, we did not have to worry about our toddler granddaughter as much as we may have had to at other places. The short walk to the water was pretty, the dock, with rocks, seals, and sunsets, is outstanding, and the many hiking trails throughout the property added to our days. Also, our dog could happily go out the door and not get into any mischief....a blessing! We have lived in Maine and also have rented many different homes...unless you plan to go north of Acadia, you will probably not find a location that is as unique as this, and yet so well-located that everyone can find his/her entertainment for the day!"

Wonderful views and very comfortable house with excellent cook's kitchen
"We spent a lovely week at the carousel cottage -- loving the view, the sound of the waves on the rocks below and enjoying cooking in the newly remodeled kitchen. We highly recommend the house to families, or two couples. You won't want to leave once you get there!"
