  • Spectacular location

    "Good stuff first. We stayed here with my family as sort of a reunion. My Parents, my sister & spouse, my brother & spouse.The house only sleeps six and they are VERY firm about this. No squeezing people in on the couch.That being the case my husband and I stayed with relatives until my brother left (they were only with us part of the week) We moved over on Tuesday.The house is situated on a cliff and views of the ocean are stunning and the house is designed so that you are able to see the ocean from not only the living room(sliders that open onto a deck)but also the master bedroom. the sound of the waves crashing on the cliffs below is deafening. Spent mornings drinking coffee on the deck and If you are up early enough, you will be able to see Lobster boats pulling in traps right in front of you.At night with a glass of wine is even better. Coming home I can honestly say that I missed the sound of the waves very, very badly! We had the good fortune of spectacular weather (only one day of fog) and being able to view many sunrises and moon sets over the water, Gorgeous! I cannot stress enough how healing and magical it is. There is a wood burning fireplace (buy your own firewood) We took advantage of the fireplace on the foggy day and it was very relaxing to have a "stay in" day with a nice fire, it took the chill and the damp out and we enjoyed some old movies. One of the bedrooms has a small library with a nice selection of Books. I will recommend "Lighthouse Horrors" for some good old fashioned scary stories (Perfect reading for being in Maine on vacation with the sound of the waves in the background)The ocean is accessible by means of a steep path to the left of the house & there is a rope rigged up to assist you getting down to the cliffs,spent many hours just laying on the rocks and sunning & reading. Do not advise swimming here as the waves and the currents are too strong. Now the bad;The living room furniture needs updating. It is comfortable but worn.The dishwasher turns on at random,the dryer was not in good working order,TV is ancient &Flat screens are so cheap nowadays.No excuse not to update especially for over $2000.00 a week. The guest bedroom queen mattress needs replacement, old and probably one of the most uncomfortable mattresses my husband and I have ever slept & we traveled all over the world, (all of Europe) They need to update this mattress! Other then this id recommend this property."

  • Fantastic Location!

    "What a perfectly inviting home only a short stroll into town! I stayed there with my mother, sister and 2 year old daughter and there was plenty of room. We loved enjoying a cup of tea on the front porch and the ease of walking into town. The neighbors were super friendly and we overall had a great time. Thank you so much for a wonderful week in your lovely town."

  • Three adults and large dog

    "A wonderful, clean, and well equipped house with plenty of space - even rainy days were comfortable. The view was spectacular from most of the rooms, especially at sunset! Get your lobsters from the coop, and consume them while watching the fox play in the meadow. We will probably return next time we go to Maine to escape southern heat."

  • Beautiful and serene!

    "This vacation rental is really a 5 stars plus. The home is beautifully situated with panoramic views of a working harbor in Penobscot Bay and is very private. The house has clearly been loved and is newly updated with tasteful and comfortable furnishings, beautiful art work and a well equipped kitchen. We also so appreciated the pet friendly and elder accessible aspects of the house. The owner is a very gracious host and we hope to return."
