"We stayed at this house last week with my parents and siblings and their families. It was a perfect home to accommodate our large group, not only because of the adequate number of bedrooms and bathrooms, but also because of the exceptionally large amount of "common room" space and the huge round dining room table that allowed all 11 of us to enjoy meals together. The home is beautifully decorated, lots of attention to detail, but also feels homey. The kitchen has absolutely everything needed. Having all linens and beach towels included is unusual in my experience, but made packing much easier, as did having a washer and dryer in the house. But really, even if the house wasn't as lovely, a visit would be worth it for the view from the deck and screened in porch overlooking the ocean. From coffee first thing in the morning, to a glass of wine as the moon reflected on water, it just couldn't have been more beautiful. We also enjoyed watching lobstermen/women pull in their traps right from our deck. Southport Island is a favorite vacation destination for our family, and this house was the perfect place to stay while there."

"We enjoyed our stay at "Mudflats". It has an incredible location at the top of the harbor, within easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and tourist attractions in Boothbay Harbor. Cottage does not have second floor bathroom. Shane was a very accommodating landlord, a pleasure to do business with. We arrived at the cottage after a very long and stress-full journey to be greeted by a nice gift of wine and a goodie bag for our two schnauzers."

"Our family of grandparents, adult children and grandchildren had a very nice time in this home for 10 days in August. Sleeping space was good, although there are no blinds so we made a makeshift curtain for the kids' room to keep out morning sun. We all had fun with the kayaks and swimming from the dock. However it was further away from the house than we anticipated- down the road and then down a path so not at all visible from the house. We made trips to Boothbay Harbor for the puffin boat trip, lighthouses, aquarium. Plenty to do and see from this location. We cooked all our meals in the roomy kitchen."

"We recently stayed at Heron Cove and for the most part were very pleased with the house and surrounding area. The house was equipped as stated except for a lack of good size bowls and dish towels. There were plenty of bath towels and bed linens. Our main complaint was the cleanliness of the house. Lisa if you are paying someone to come in and clean between guests than I suggest you find another company. The black mold around the windows and on the fridge seal was not good. My son upon arrival had to start taking medicine for this. I would suggest a dehumidifier for the basement as the dampness and odor made it impossible to stay down there. Also there was a broken rocking chair on the porch and you have let the bushes grow so that it was hard to get down to the water, (not like picture). The house otherwise fit our needs and it was quiet and nice to be able to let the kids play outside without worrying about them going out into the road. Neighbors were nice enough to let us put our kayak in from their property. It was very relaxing, with lots of wonderful sights. The view from the deck is beautiful. Would recommend this home if the few things I mentioned were addressed"
