  • Amazing Venue for Any Occasion!

    "The Smith House is one of those magical properties with stunning views all-around, rolling green lawn space and endless sanctuaries of natural beauty! We just held our wedding ceremony and celebration at the Smith House and could not have picked a more beautiful spot for such a special occasion. Out-of-town guests stayed in the Smith House, camped on the property and stayed at the Squire Tarbox Inn up the road. The ability to utilize all of the property's stunning backdrops - the barn, the ocean view, and the salt water pond lake view made for a celebration like no other!! We hope to be able to return and enjoy this quintessential Maine property for some of future anniversaries!"

  • A vacation rental with all the comforts of home!

    "We were so impressed with this vacation rental. This was our first visit to Maine and we felt right at home immediately upon arrival. The house was well appointed, spotless and amenities were numerous, from the well-stocked spice drawer, the pantry with every piece of cookware you might need, the pancake recipes on the inside of the cabinet, to the game shelves (there's even a playroom on the lower level with lots of toys,) hand soap, toilet paper and kleenex in every bathroom, along with dish soap, dishwasher soap and laundry detergent and fabric softener. The home is spacious and has wonderful views of the Sheepscot River from the deck and the house. There's even a canoe to take out on the river along with the requisite lifevests. The house has been lovingly taken care of. This was a nice mid-point for all the places we wanted to visit along the coast-it was the perfect place to unwind and relax after our days of sightseeing. Wiscasset is a very picturesque town and Red's Eats was our first stop of the week for Maine Lobster-their Lobster Roll was excellent, but make sure you come very hungry-it is huge! Other notable places to eat and visit: the Sea Salt Cafe in Damariscotta for breakfast, the Clam Shack in Kennebunkport, Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park(Excellent food, especially the popovers and strawberry jam-reservations are recommended) Pemaquid Point Lighthouse(gorgeous scenery) Ben and Bill's in Bar Harbor for ice cream(they even have lobster ice cream!), the Camden Deli has some yummy blueberry pie. We also went to a clambake on Cabbage Island-it was one of the highlights of our trip and a wonderful way to end the week -you will not leave there hungry! We visited Freeport and shopped at L.L. Bean and checked out Boothbay Harbor. The owner provided some excellent suggestions for places to eat and visit, too-all in all, a memorable vacation!"

  • Perfect Silver Wedding Anniversary Retreat

    "We're from the UK and visited Pemaquid Point 4 years ago and fell in love with it. I went straight home and found this cottage online and have been saving it for a special event. As you can imagine my hopes and expectations were pretty high and I'm very happy to say they were met and exceeded. Laura was very friendly & efficient from the start, answering all my questions promptly by email and quickly returning our deposit after our stay. The cottage is in the most perfect location on its own little sandy beach. It faces west so we enjoyed some beautiful sunsets but the sun also appeared quickly in the morning so we had several breakfasts on the deck in the sunshine. We enjoyed some beautiful weather for late Sept/Early October and enjoyed cocktails on the beach as well as just chilling out & reading on the deck. When the weather wasn't so kind we just chilled out in the very comfy lounge with the doors open, enjoying the views and listening to the sea. The garden is a bit of a nature lovers dream. Monarch butterflies visited the asters and we watched loons, cormorants and seals from bed. We were also lucky to see 2 bald eagles flying over the deck. The cottage comes well equipped with wildlife identification books and we made full use of the telescope and binoculars for wildlife and star gazing. The bedroom has the same fabulous views. We slept with the windows opened and listened to the sea. The bed was very comfortable - I rarely sleep through when we're on holiday but did on this trip. The kitchen is very well equipped, as is the whole cottage - just those little things like arriving to find loo paper, coffee filters, tea kettle, soap, salt & pepper, washing up liquid, powerful shower, working WiFi make all the difference. We ate out at King Eiders Pub in Damariscotta a couple of times and Shaws at New Harbour. However we fell in love with the cupboard café, which is a couple of miles away, and their cinnamon buns - we breakfasted there 4 times in one week. We drove over to Mount Battie at Camden and Marhsall Point Lighthouse ( both about an hour ) and also went to the Botanical Gardens ( 45 minutes ) and Freeport for LL Bean ( 1 hr ) and, of course, the lighthouse and Pemaquid Beach. We've stayed at many vacation rentals worldwide and this made for one of the best holidays we've had. Thank you"

  • Serene and beautiful

    "When we arrived in late June the gardens around the home were gorgeous, this property does not seem like a rental in any way. The pictures of the grounds do not do it justice. We appreciated having the deep water moorings and dock, and found many calm water periods for the kayaks. We had beautiful weather and spent a good deal of time on the spacious and well furnished porch, with both garden and ocean views. The Boothbay and mid coast area have much to offer for activities, but we found that a lot of our planned day trips went by the wayside, as we did not want to leave this property! The home itself was well appointed and accurately represented. The owners live nearby and made it clear that they were available for any questions or other needs. I hope to stay here again!"
