"My wife and I, along with our two children, stayed at this property for a week this summer (2015). To say it was fantastic would be an understatement. The property sits about 20' above a wonderful tidal cove that offers unlimited exploring for collecting shells or sea glass. We explored the entire coastline by Kayak and walked for miles along the water. It's one of the most serene and tranquil places we've been to anywhere in Maine.
The house is terrific and offered everything you might need. It's spacious, warm, and inviting and, which offers a great opportunity to reconnect with your family and friends.
The island is slow-paced. Everyone waves while passing by car or bike and in minutes, you'll feel your blood pressure drop and your ability to breathe freely consume you. Grab your bike and ride for miles - every inch of the island is welcoming and offers amazing views. We took the ferry back and forth a couple of times and enjoyed Camden (about 10 minutes away after you exit the ferry) and several restaurants nearby. Even the ferry ride is a vacation in itself. However, I do have to warn every future guest… your last ferry ride before you travel back home will not be enjoyable. It’s a sad experience and one that will most likely leave you questioning why you live where you do when places like this exist.
We've rented many homes before, but Michael (the owner) is above the rest. He's unbelievably welcoming and hospitable; always available for suggestions, any issues that may arise (none did for us) and respectful - he's just a down to earth, nice person. This property and the experience really set the bar higher for any future trip and we’ll most certainly be returning again and again."

A step back in time with great views and some modern conveniences
"This is an incredible home and I recommend it for a launching pad for exploring the mid coast of Maine. Worlds away from civilization while being close enough (10 minutes) for groceries, restaurants and sightseeing... Stayed here for a wedding weekend and wish I had more time and more of my family with me to enjoy the home, farm and salt water. It's a neatly preserved old Maine home with neat decorations and knick·knacks. Ideal for a romantic get away, family vacation or group of friends getting together to celebrate. It gets 4 out of 5 stars only because it did not have a shower (only a tub). Internet would be a bonus but you may want to get away. It does have satellite TV and movies for rainy day entertainment."

"We had a lovely stay at the carriage house. Everything was just as it was advertised & in great condition. If we had a question we called the property caretaker & he was right there to take care of it. The Dock was a lovely place to sit & the grounds were very beautiful. Thank you for making our vacation so lovely we had a wonderful time.

"This lovely home is tucked away in a fairly secluded neighborhood off the beaten track and with an awesome view of the humbling ocean. The digs were extremely comfortable and the newly remodeled upstairs was sensational. We were 2 couples so the layout provided for full privacy and comfort. The oyster and lobster delivery services were as promised and delectable. The location allows access to Boothbay Harbor, Camden, etc (about an hour away) or stay-at-home, lazy days on the hammock. Thanks to Bill (who we were lucky enough to meet and spend time with!!!) and Bon (who we feel like we met through Bill) for making our Maine getaway so memorable."
