  • Every comfort!

    "Staying at Portside within the Backbay Cottage condominium affords remarkable comfort. The kitchen and bedrooms were thoughtfully laid out, with relaxing seating, full size appliances, spacious bathrooms and even plenty of storage space. On the deck, there are tables, and lounge chairs for guest to perch and view the activity in the harbor. This is tasteful and inviting accommodation that we would highly recommend."

  • Perfect Place!

    "Our multigenerational family of 12 just returned from a wonderful week at Schooner's Landing. The ocean front house was beautiful with warmly decorated rooms and peaceful views of the ocean. The downstairs area provided the grandchildren with many activities, from toys to video games, and from watching a movie to playing board games. The kitchen was well-equipped and it was fun to cook while we all talked together in that spacious area. Each family had their own level of the house which was nice for comfort and privacy. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a welcome basket which made us feel we were in a "home away from home." The owners were available at any time for questions and were extremely helpful. We would recommend this home!"

  • Wow! Better than the photos!

    "It's rare that you look at photos of a place where you plan to stay which look so perfect and that your real life experience exceeds the glossy pictures! Christina's class and style resonate all over this magnificent property with every attention to detail. Waking up to the lake and its magnificent surrounds reminded me of so many movie scenes of that perfect retreat where you just want to contemplate life. We were a group of 10 who came together from as far as Australia, Germany and Israel to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was during the fall so this too made it special. I don't doubt however that every season would make the stay memorable for the surrounding walks, hikes, adventures and neighbouring restaurants as well as the nearby beauty of Belfast and Camden. Some of my favourite time was spent kayaking on the lake; sitting by the fire place in warm discussions as well as the home cooked meals made with a combination of the hand picked vegetables from the onsite organic farm, magnificent kitchen and the famous Maine Lobster (there is nothing better!). Our stay will always be memorable as an experience overall and for my birthday dinner on the porch with the fire going in a rare and warm atmosphere consistent so much with this special property. It is with great pleasure that I recommend this secluded and exclusive getaway. Thank you Christina for allowing us and others this wonderful experience. Like you, it is very special."

  • Lovely home base in Wiscasset

    "Our group of 5 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this roomy well-appointed cottage. The listing and photos on this site are perfectly accurate, the property's clean and welcoming, and the owner Ann-Marie's very friendly and helpful. We relaxed in the comfy sun room in the mornings before heading out to Camden, Bath, Portland, Boothbay Harbor, Freeport, and other picturesque towns that are an easy drive from Wiscasset. We strolled the nearby antique stores, and loved that our favorite overstuffed lobster rolls at Red's Eats were only a block or so away! Sarah's Cafe down the street also has terrific food, and the ice cream shop next to Red's was also visited by us many times. Be sure to check out the little booths near Sprague's (across the street from Red's) so you can buy marvelous local fruit jams/jellies/syrups from Forgotten Recipes -- we get them for ourselves and to give as gifts. The spacious dining room table was excellent for playing board and card games, and we also spent an evening in the front parlor (with its beautiful views of the waterway) playing Cards Against Humanity thanks to a couple of handy folding tables. The dining room also supported our feasts when we chose to bring home dinner or use the excellent kitchen amenities. If you like eating whole lobsters, go to Gilman's in nearby Bath -- they'll steam them for you if you wish, and put them in a styrofoam container to keep them hot for the trip back to the house (we returned the container to them the next day) where you can dine in bug-free comfort. Five Islands near Georgetown is also excellent, but bring plenty of bug spray if you eat at the picnic tables. Both places have soft-shell lobsters early and mid-July; not edible like soft-shelled crabs, but very easy to crack open. Having a washer/dryer was handy, allowing us to pack light as we could do laundry as needed. It's great that plenty of linens are provided, too, including towels for swimming use. We may well return to this lovely place in the future. The only drawbacks I can think of are that the staircase to the upper floor is rather steep with narrow treads, and tall people may bump their heads in the upstairs rooms. Terrific vacation spot!"
