"My daughter and her husband joined us at this wonderful location. The house was located with a beautiful view of the bay. It was peaceful and quiet, the sun rises were stunning. the home is well equipped, clean and host was very attentive. Later in the week another couple joined us. We enjoyed eating at Rollie's in Belfast (only 10 minutes drive south). One day was spent in the Bar Harbor area. (beautiful area) Belfast is really the best area for grocery shopping and eating. We all enjoyed our stay and hope to return again next year only we plan to stay at least two weeks. This was my second time in Maine and I hope to return, the others in our party had never been in this area and loved it. Thanks for a wonderful week."

"This spring will be our 3rd trip to Eleanor and Pete's wonderful efficiency apartment. The studio is very clean and neat, it is furnished with everything we have needed for our stays, from kitchen supplies to towels and bed linens, with comfortable beds and sitting area. The studio is located in a beautiful - quiet area, as you are eating breakfast be sure to look out and see the wild turkeys as they take their morning stroll. The deck is the perfect spot to have a lobster bake after you take in the beautiful sunset on Ocean Point. The location is ideal, you could easily spend a week just exploring the beautiful local areas - the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Peninsula, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and the Maritime Museum in Bath, for starters. Eleanor and Pete are extremely welcoming and helpful with anything you may need to plan your stay, their boat rides and tours have been a highlight of our trips. Our only regret is we did meet Eleanor and Pete and find this lovely place sooner. We are already looking forward to our 2016 visit."

Quiet location on the edge of town, close to everything....
"The apt. at Arbor House was light filled, comfortable, well furnished, spacious and very tidy. We were right at home with the funky and eclectic decor where books and art abound. The bed was extremely comfortable. Location is ideal to downtown Rockland; leave the car in the driveway and walk to museums, galleries, great restaurants and cafes, theater and more. Owls Head, Camden, Thomaston, Rockport and other towns are easily accessible by car. This was our first trek to this area of Maine and we'll be back for sure. The hosts at Arbor House are friendly and available, but never intrusive. The garden was amazing, even in Sept."

came back for second year in a row for family vacation
"we had such a great time last year that we came back for our family vacation again this August. The accommodations were perfect. The cabin is on a cove. We drank coffee on the deck and watched the sunrise over the ocean. We skipped rocks and collected shells during the day. At night, we grilled burgers and ate lobster under the stars. We used the kayaks to get to a secluded beach that the neighbors told us about. We used the place as a base camp to explore interior Maine and along the coast. It is an ideal location because it is very near lots of attractions, but distanced enough from the tourism and traffic that it provides a real escape and adventure. It is also unique in that the towns it is near are real towns and not just generic tourist towns. The cabin has two bedrooms, a warm and inviting living/ dining area and a kitchen with everything necessary to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The owners are kind and generous folks and that is obvious in our interactions with them as well as in the vibe of the home. It feels warm and welcoming. Highly recommended."
