"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!"

"The house was comfortable for 4 adults and 4 children. We really enjoyed the large deck area and yard. The location was easy access to a put-in for paddle boards and kayaks. Easy trip to Rockland and Camden. We enjoyed walking to the small grocery store and biking to Drift In Beach. St. George/Tenants Harbor/Port Clyde are lovely."

"From the moment we began our stay at Eleanor and Pete's apartment we knew we had hit the jackpot! From an introductory tour to acquaint us with the goings on in the area, to the boat ride, our hosts were terrific. We could be alone when we wanted privacy, but could sit and talk at other times. We enjoyed a lobster dinner on their deck.
The apartment was spotless and the kitchen was furnished with everything we needed. We heartily recommend this quiet and peaceful place.
Convenient to places of interest."
