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."

"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."

"We spend a lot of time going to the Camden area and this was our first experience using VRBO.
When we first arrived the first thing we loved was the location of the place. We new right then and there that we were already happy. Our hosts greeted us as soon as we arrived giving us a tour of the immaculate apartment.
Everything that we could need and want was already supplied for us. We really didn't need to bring as much as we did. Skip and Judy were incredible hosts and made us feel at home right away. it was our second wedding anniversary and it was my birthday in the same week. Judy made those days even more special for us by surprising us with little extras for those days. Making her Incredible mint brownies and putting candles in and singing happy birthday to me. Giving us wine and a beautiful card for our anniversary. They went above and beyond. Skip also provided us with a wonderful boat ride around the lake. By the end of the stay we felt more like family instead of renters. They were wonderful hosts who respected our privacy while at the same time were available to us when we needed them. We hope to return soon as we enjoyed Skip and Judy as much as we enjoyed the apartment. We feel very lucky to have chosen Skip and Judy as our first and best VRBO experience."
