  • Our Maine adventure.

    "We enjoyed the cottage, It was clean, homey and well equipped. The kitchen was workable for those like myself who enjoy cooking. I would recommend this rental for couples, it is a small cottage and I think four would be a crowd. We were fine, two plus a dog. It would have been nice if there were a gate in front of the stairway on the front deck, in our case because of the dog, but if there were a young child, because of the fall hazard. We had a relaxing quiet week and would consider returning again. My only regret is we never meet the owners and they did not check to see if all was well during the week. We did also find the wifi connection pretty iffy, with a very weak signal that often cut out altogether. All in all, these are niggling complaints, and we enjoyed the stay."

  • Perfect home base for exploring coastal Maine.

    "Well kept home with beautiful garden. Deck off the kitchen has a view of the Rockland Harbor. We loved the location. Rockland is a lovely village within walking distance of the Arbor House. We explored Bar Harbor and Acadia to whale watching from the BoothBay Harbor area. The location was perfect for relaxing in the evening. Thanks for a great visit."

  • A sweet family retreat in Maine!

    "My family and I had a wonderful stay at Lilac Ledge. The sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas Cove and the Atlantic Ocean just outside the front door are invigorating. We felt as though we stepped back in time. This is a very special place. The house was clean, extremely well stocked with EVERYTHING we needed, and extremely spacious and comfortable. We were concerned about not having air conditioning in August, but we found that we didn't even need it. The skylights and the fans cooled the house more than sufficiently. We even had to close the windows at night to keep the house from cooling off too much. We had a kayak delivered by Tidal Transit Kayak Company for the week, so we were able to explore Christmas Cove and the Sheepscot River from the water. The scenery in this area must be seen to be believed. The rocky coastline is teeming with wildlife and lined with beach roses, blueberries, tall stands of spruce and tide pools. The attractions of the Boothbay Harbor area are close by, and though tempting, we found that we were perfectly content spending most of our time right at "home". This is a true getaway. No television was provided, nor was it missed. Thank you again Jon an Janet for your warm hospitality and for sharing your treasured family vacation home with us!"

  • Peaceful and Relaxing

    "If your looking for a quiet place to forget about work and just enjoy reading and watching the kids swim this is the perfect place. Not to mention the beautiful lake and paddling the canoes which was so amazing. Both our boys 4 and 6 were able to wade in the front of the property. The water front is clear and rock bottom for about 10-20 feet before you get into the Lilly pads. For adult swimming we took the canoe out to the raft and swam out there. I don't ever like to touch lake bottom so this was perfect just to cool off and float around. The best part was when my family came to visit, the boys went on the canoe and caught a fish, that was amazing. The cabin is clean and comfortable, we had great internet service and were able to stream netfllix on our tablets. Lobster was at an all time low, and we ate plenty on the great picnic table, lobster pot at the cabin made cooking easy. The beds were comfortable. This was a perfect place for us to meet up with friends and family. It was like camping out with all the fixings of home. The area is quite and allowed for my husband and I to get our morning jogs completed without traffic. My sister who lives lives in Portland is thinking of renting the cabin in the future just to come and enjoy the lake and relax with a nightly camp fire. We were close enough to the ocean to enjoy the water and yet far enough to enjoy the peace of being at the lake. Darmiscotta state park is only a few minutes down the road with a sandy beach and great for a picnic. Thanks so much for your cabin it was a perfect."
