  • Beautiful and serene!

    "This vacation rental is really a 5 stars plus. The home is beautifully situated with panoramic views of a working harbor in Penobscot Bay and is very private. The house has clearly been loved and is newly updated with tasteful and comfortable furnishings, beautiful art work and a well equipped kitchen. We also so appreciated the pet friendly and elder accessible aspects of the house. The owner is a very gracious host and we hope to return."

  • Pleasant cottage

    "My wife and I enjoyed a two week stay in the Maranatha Cottage in late August and early September. The cottage sits behind the larger house that’s also available as a rental from the same owner. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen with a new refrigerator and stove and although there were only two of us, there is ample sleeping space for a larger group. The cottage sits a few dozen feet further back from the water than the main house but there’s a lovely view of the sunrise over the water from the master bedroom window. The two properties sit at the water’s edge at the end of a cul-de-sac so it’s very quiet and peaceful throughout the day. This was a working vacation and we were away each day until evening, so we especially enjoyed sipping a glass of wine on the beach at sunset. While the location feels remote, good restaurants, shopping and services are available a few miles away in Thomaston or Rockland. The excellent Slipway restaurant at the marina in Thomaston should not be missed. We had comfortable and enjoyable stay in the cottage and felt that it was very reasonably priced."

  • Peaceful

    "What a wonderful way to spend downtime with the family. We typically stay pretty busy on vacation and everyone was content to just hang out this time. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the cottage and views. The cottage was homey with the stone fireplace and comfortable furniture. It was great to have the windows open to enjoy the breeze and sounds of the wave. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us (and thanks for the reminder of the bonfire on the rocks). I hope to return in the future."

  • The perfect choice

    "The cottage has all the amenities one could want without sacrificing its coastal charm. It's a very short drive to downtown Searsport, close to beautiful state parks, museums, antique shops and fresh seafood. The cottage provides easy access to the beach, fantastic views, a deck great for catching rays, grilling or just watching the tide roll in. Very clean, with comfortable beds, nice linens and enough hot water for everyone. The pictures don't lie. We have used VRBO to stay across the country, and always had a positive experience. But we've never had a more friendly and accommodating host working with us than Nancy. Her thoughtfulness and consideration made our trip even better. It's not a question of if we will be back, just a matter of when."
