"This is a great cottage to really enjoy your Maine experience. Fully-stocked in a thoughtful way, everything is waiting for you upon arrival! There's fresh firewood by the fireplace, a hairdryer in the bedroom and binoculars waiting by the door. Janet is responsive and really seems to anticipate what someone could need to enjoy their stay. The screened porch and back deck are wonderful spots for meals, reading books or watching the sunset. The cabin is close to New Harbor for shopping, groceries and meals, and it's within walking distance of the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse for picturesque views and history. Check out Maine Kayaking for day adventures, and the Pemaquid Lobster Coop for delicious food and a gorgeous view. We can't say enough good things about the cottage and experience--and thanks for making it a welcoming place for our dog!"

"This was our second year to spend a week in September at the Carousel. We will definitely want to return again and again. The house is beautifully located on a bluff overlooking the ocean with a deck that offers gorgeous views of the sunrise, the ocean with working lobster boats and, of course, the sound of surf pounding below. One special feature that we loved was the way the sun warms the deck in the morning so that even on chilly September morings it was comfortable to sit outside and enjoy coffee with the view. Inside, the house is well equipped for cooking and relaxing. We loved the comfortable living room with its many windows, making it possible to enjoy the view even on rainy or stormy days. There are two bedrooms downstairs, each with its own bathroom (beautifully rennovated) and a bed upstairs in the loft. The only problem I could find with the house is that a couple sleeping upstairs cannot access a bathroom without going through one of the downstairs bedrooms. If children are sleeping in the loft ths might be ok, but not for, say, a third couple. Otherwise, I would say the house is perfect. If you prefer to do something other than sit on the deck, there are lovely places to visit nearby - for example, the Marshall Point Lighthouse, the little village of Port Clyde, Drift-in Beach, the Lobster Lane Used Bookstore (unfortunately only open on weekends) and Monhegan Island which has a nice boat ride to get there and some wonderful hiking. The house and its surroundings are all a very special experience!"

"This is a wonderful spot with breathtaking sunrises and peace and quiet. The trails and conservation land next door are such a treat. If you want to kayak or bike ride you need to bring them w/you to the island. There are no rental places on island which is the only reason I didn't rate the experience a 5. It was something I knew about in advance but wish there was a better option for guests flying in."

"We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It was decorated beautifully and had all the amenities. We were surprised at how well the bathroom and kitchen were stocked. It was just like being at home. Everything was clean and the location is great. We hope to return next year and have that relaxing vacation."
