  • Most peaceful week ever!

    "My husband and I spent a week at this wonderful property to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and his birthday, which was during our stay. It was amazing to look out on salt water from so many windows and each time we stepped outside! The view from the house is mesmerizing, with a gorgeous sunrise every morning. I never tired of photographing the sunrise, even though the pictures are all very similar. Higgins Island makes the view more interesting out front, and the cove is peaceful while the waters just beyond are more active. We had fun walking out to, and around, Higgins Island during low tide. There is a trail head at the end of the road which splits, one way going to the island, and the other into the woods and around a beaver pond. They are set aside for our enjoyment by the Islesboro Island Trust, which has at least a dozen such spots on the island. We hiked them all, and we bicycled all over the island. It is a great island for cycling! Michael could not be more charming and thoughtful and kind; he was an excellent communicator and very helpful. The house was exactly as shown in the photographs, and the long lawn reaching to the water, studded with apple trees and four Adirondack chairs, is like Paradise. A family of deer visited each evening to collect the apples that had fallen that day from the tree. The house is both elegant and comfortable. In a day or two, it felt like home. By the end of the week, I wanted to buy it. Michael's book collection and record collection are impressive, and my husband could have spent a few more months just looking at the books. We were afraid to touch the stereo and records, even though it is okay with Michael. As people who are usually very "plugged in" it was good for us not to have internet for a week. It is a great reminder that a retreat from the hustle bustle of the world can be very good for the soul, and for the relationship too. I almost feel that I cannot get a real vacation from work anymore unless I can put in my out-of-the-office auto-reply that I am on an island in Maine (or somewhere) where there is no internet. There are fewer and fewer places like that. The break from TV didn't hurt either. We read, hiked, biked, and I knitted a sweater! We cooked and ate and explored. I would not be at all surprised if we go back next year. Thank you so much, Michael, for sharing your lovely Cape with people you do not even know. It is a great act of generosity."

  • Lots of amenities!!

    "Every year three couples take a fall trip and this year we chose Maine. Looking on VRBO for a place to stay we found this wonderful very roomy place, from the beginning, Doris was very easy to work with. We got in after dark and was kind of hard to navigate but we found it and was very much surprised to find out how big it was. All the rooms on main floor are very roomy. The next morning we woke up to beautiful views overlooking the inlet. We got to enjoy fall foliage, pumpkin festival, boat ride, lobster dinners cooked at the house, fire in the fire pit on patio, full moon and bottles of wine and beer. The house is well equipped for everything you need, games and books included. All 3 couples agreed this was the most spacious place we have rented in our 20+ years of doing our fall trip. We would definitely recommend it to others. We all wanted to stay an extra week but had to get back. Thanks for sharing your Beautiful Home with us."

  • Great expectation was met!

    "Lovely, well-appointed apartment. Perfect location. We walked into town and to the harbor. We were right on the road to drive to Lake Meginticook where our friends were renting. The rental experience was easy and pleasant. I would recommend this to anyone."

  • Relaxing private area with beautiful large home.

    "We spent a short 4 days and enjoyed every second of our time in this comfy, yet large, home. We fished, shopped, went on walks along trails on the property and the local area. Took a day trip over to Monhegan Island - it was GLORIOUS! I finally heard the loons on my last night there. Another item off my bucket list. We ate at King Eiders Pub one night and I had their fantastic Seafood Pot Pie. Wish we'd had more time to spend in the area. Maybe someday we will return, I'd like to think so. Thank you for opening up your home so that others can enjoy the incredible beauty of the Bristol area."
