"My husband and and I have vacationed in phippsburg many times....from camping at Hermit Island to the Lighthouse at Sebasco Resort. This was the first year we rented a house and we were so glad we did! The house is beautiful, clean, well maintained and stocked. I surprised myself and cooked more than anticipated because the induction cooktop was so much fun. I'm usually kind of skeeved at using dishes, glassware, walking barefoot, etc. in a strange place but this house was so clean, I didn't feel any of that.
We had fun paddling around in our rented two person kayak all week. The water is like glass in the morning and evening. There are schools of tiny fish that jump out of the water and with a kayak you can glide right through them!
Things that surprised me about the house compared to the website.....it's on a very private road with 3 houses on it. The road is kind of steep but definitely doable. The shower is strange...probably the least desirable feature of the house. Jim says they're thinking of putting in an outdoors shower, which would be great. Nothing like a little outdoor nudity to make a vacation interesting!
My suggestion would be to enhance the deck to compliment the beautiful view and make it a nice place to sit in the evening.
All in all, would definitely return to this lovely home for another vacation."

"We were two families (6 adults and 4 children) and had more than enough space for everyone to spread out. The house is amazing; what a view! Everything was exactly as described. The kitchen is well stocked for meal preparations. The use of the canoe and kayaks made for great adventures for everyone of all ages. The location is perfect: secluded, huge yard, right on the water, and close to the local mercantile (which I highly recommend visiting, especially for a lobster roll). We had a great time playing games: ping pong, board games, and volleyball. Friendship is a lovely town. I definitely recommend this house for anyone looking for a quiet, fun-filled Maine experience. The owners were incredibly helpful in providing immediate communication and ideas for local outings."

"This house is in a prime location on a private beach, which is extremely rare to come by in Maine. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. There are a lot of comfortable seating areas both inside and out. The beds are great... nice sheets and firm mattresses! They are a big difference from most rental properties! My family had a fantastic stay in this cottage and we plan to return for many years to come!"

"This cottage is clean as a whistle, with everything and more that you will need to relax and enjoy the Boothbay area. The furnishings were clean and comfortable and the home surprisingly roomy. We were able to hear the gulls and fog horns! It is just far enough outside of the noise of downtown Boothbay and yet very close. Great place to stay!!!"
