  • Exquisite charm with serenity

    "My wife and I stayed at this gorgeous vacation home on Columbus Day weekend. It was so wonderful to get away from the hustle and bustle of greater Boston. Chris was warm and easy to work with allowing us to bring our beloved dog Oscar without hesitation. We went for walks along the main road, had breakfast at the cozy little cafe down the road, and attended the local pumpkin festival. The deck is huge with a picturesque view of the gut, we sat and watched the boats come in an out of the harbor with great peace and delight. There was WIFI, parking for 3 cars, 2 spacious bedrooms, blankets, books, board games, and kayaks for use. We basically had all the amenities of a 5-star hotel with the character and charm of this sleepy and nautical vacation home. South Bristol is a hidden gem and a must see and Chris was more than friendly and accommodating. We will be returning very soon."

  • Perfect in Every Way!

    "The Moorings is the perfect vacation spot! It is a lovely, Maine house with charm and an amazing location right on the water. We spent a week at this house for a family reunion (there were 16 of us!) and absolutely fell in love. There was space for all of us, a kitchen that had more pots, pans, dishes, and glasses than most summer camps and a view from the porch that was worth every penny. We brought our kayaks and paddleboards and tied them at the private dock. Since the Moorings is on a bay, we could boat and swim in the calm waters every day. It was heavenly. The cute, small residential area of Bayville had tennis and indoor ping pong and everyone we met was friendly and kind. By the end of the trip, we were all scheming how we could own such a property on the coast of Maine. This house is a gem. We are so thankful to have found it for this week and we can't wait to return!"

  • Couldn't have had a better stay.

    "Everything you can think of to feel at home is provided at 'Angel's Roost'. We hosted a birthday party complete with Lobsters and Steak. There were pots for the lobsters and a propane grill for the steaks, and a dishwasher to clean it all up! Wonderful front porch and back deck, though not on the water, both have views of the Penobscot. Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors, what you would expect of a sleepy coastal town. A stone throw from the Searsport dock and shore, we launched our canoe for morning excursions. Very memorable. We will definitely stay again."

  • Most peaceful week ever!

    "My husband and I spent a week at this wonderful property to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and his birthday, which was during our stay. It was amazing to look out on salt water from so many windows and each time we stepped outside! The view from the house is mesmerizing, with a gorgeous sunrise every morning. I never tired of photographing the sunrise, even though the pictures are all very similar. Higgins Island makes the view more interesting out front, and the cove is peaceful while the waters just beyond are more active. We had fun walking out to, and around, Higgins Island during low tide. There is a trail head at the end of the road which splits, one way going to the island, and the other into the woods and around a beaver pond. They are set aside for our enjoyment by the Islesboro Island Trust, which has at least a dozen such spots on the island. We hiked them all, and we bicycled all over the island. It is a great island for cycling! Michael could not be more charming and thoughtful and kind; he was an excellent communicator and very helpful. The house was exactly as shown in the photographs, and the long lawn reaching to the water, studded with apple trees and four Adirondack chairs, is like Paradise. A family of deer visited each evening to collect the apples that had fallen that day from the tree. The house is both elegant and comfortable. In a day or two, it felt like home. By the end of the week, I wanted to buy it. Michael's book collection and record collection are impressive, and my husband could have spent a few more months just looking at the books. We were afraid to touch the stereo and records, even though it is okay with Michael. As people who are usually very "plugged in" it was good for us not to have internet for a week. It is a great reminder that a retreat from the hustle bustle of the world can be very good for the soul, and for the relationship too. I almost feel that I cannot get a real vacation from work anymore unless I can put in my out-of-the-office auto-reply that I am on an island in Maine (or somewhere) where there is no internet. There are fewer and fewer places like that. The break from TV didn't hurt either. We read, hiked, biked, and I knitted a sweater! We cooked and ate and explored. I would not be at all surprised if we go back next year. Thank you so much, Michael, for sharing your lovely Cape with people you do not even know. It is a great act of generosity."
