"We so enjoyed our stay in Islesboro at this wonderful home. It is a very private, beautiful location where your blood pressure will decrease immediately as you look out over the pasture filled with wildflowers to the sea beyond. The house itself is utterly charming and comfortable-clean as a whistle. It is well appointed with everything you need, and the decor is lovely. The hosts, Laine and Jon are warm, friendly and accessible and made us feel very welcome. Our only complaint is that we didn't book for a longer period of time. We can't wait to return for a longer stay next year. I highly recommend this spot- it is perfect in every way."

"Our extended family of five adults and five kids spent a great week in this house, enjoying the beautiful water views and the fine amenities. We took day trips to Boothbay and to Reid State Park, kayaked off the dock, swam in the little cove on Kehail Point, and enjoyed dinners cooked at home in the beautiful, well-appointed kitchen, and at restaurants in Georgetown and Boothbay. The downstairs area was a great space for the five kids with plenty of sleeping room and a full bathroom (and fast wifi, much appreciated by the teens). The upstairs rooms were spacious and comfortable, and even with multiple showers, loads of laundry, and the dishwasher, we never once ran out of hot water. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us."

"Again, for the second year, the accommodations were excellent. Location is ideal, with relatives in Rockland and Lincolnville. Maria is an excellent host, being there when needed, but behind the scenes. Everything about the property is 1st class and will do it again."

our family LOVES life on Knickerbocker Lake, nearby Boothbay Harbor
"Our family of 12 (ages 8-80) has enjoyed week-long sojourns at this quiet, private lake-side retreat for many years. The kids enjoy swimming in the lake & exploring the lake via kayak. We love hearing the loons at night. The kitchen is fairly well equipped (although a new stove/oven would be very nice!) and we prepare most of our meals together; a trip to the lobster pound is a daily experience. The Botanical Garden is a treasure & we take side trips to nearby attractions such as the aquarium and boat rides in the harbor. On our way north, to Boothbay, we stop at Whole Foods in Portland in order to stock up on fruit, veggies and things we know we cannot get at Hannaford's . We do our 'big shop' for staples at Hannafords south of Boothbay. The local Hannaford store, in Boothbay, is adequate and there is a farm store close by where we buy corn and other veggies. Linens are supplied and we put used sheets and towels by the washing machine before we depart. On occasion there have been minor problems, such as a toilet that needed fixing, and the owners were very quick to call a repair person. We all appreciate having wi-fi at the house and it is very pleasant to sit on the porch, overlooking the lake, when doing email or just relaxing. We take our ipod with us as there is a 'dock' so we can listen to 'our' music. Our adult children and their husbands take turns sleeping at the 'love shack' down the hill towards the lake - its nice to be be able to sleep in while on vacation. We highly recommend a week or two or three at the Knickerbocker Lake Retreat"
