"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."

Perfect Location for Relishing Island Life on Islesboro
"What a wonderful location on the island for slowing down, taking a deep breath, and relishing life on Islesboro. The lovely home sits in the middle of the island so it's easy to go up-island or down-island. Plus you have a true sense of privacy. Adirondack chairs that sit next to a short drop-off overlooking the Penobscot Bay or sitting on the property's beach were our family's go-to places to read, zone, meditate, or write. Even our 2 teens got into this pattern. They also thoroughly enjoyed the provided kayaks w/ PFDs for exploring the calm bay. Poking around on the property's beach, especially at low-tide, with no time constraints --- heaven! The island has 2 small markets (Durkee's and Island Market) that have a surprisingly nice variety of groceries/household supplies and each are a very short drive from the house. Be sure to research your food options & store hrs ahead of time so you know what you'll want to bring with you from the mainland though. The home has a generous amount of towels/linens and a nice variety of kitchen pots/pans/dishes, including an outdoor propane-fueled lobster cooker. Free WIFI is available 24/7 just a 10 min walk down the road at the public library. Thank you Alan for making your home available for those of us that relish living a more quiet, serene life, even if just for a week."

"The apartment was comfortable, quiet, very clean and well maintained. I noticed that the carpet was a better quality than you see in most vacation rentals. The hosts are very nice people who go the extra mile to make sure their guests have the best possible stay. We were there Oct. 4-10, a great time to explore the beautiful Mid-coast area after many of the tourists have left."

"This is a wonderful spot with breathtaking sunrises and peace and quiet. The trails and conservation land next door are such a treat. If you want to kayak or bike ride you need to bring them w/you to the island. There are no rental places on island which is the only reason I didn't rate the experience a 5. It was something I knew about in advance but wish there was a better option for guests flying in."
