  • 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!"

  • Quiet location on the edge of town, close to everything....

    "The apt. at Arbor House was light filled, comfortable, well furnished, spacious and very tidy. We were right at home with the funky and eclectic decor where books and art abound. The bed was extremely comfortable. Location is ideal to downtown Rockland; leave the car in the driveway and walk to museums, galleries, great restaurants and cafes, theater and more. Owls Head, Camden, Thomaston, Rockport and other towns are easily accessible by car. This was our first trek to this area of Maine and we'll be back for sure. The hosts at Arbor House are friendly and available, but never intrusive. The garden was amazing, even in Sept."

  • A beautiful spot to vacation!

    "Me, my boyfriend & our two dogs really enjoyed our time here! We spent each day hiking the local land trust trails-there were so many that we sometimes hiked two per day & we never repeated a trail! The trails & views were gorgeous. We took a few day trips to neighboring towns & never traveled more than 60 minutes. Reed State Park was worth the 60 minute drive with bike trails & two gorgeous beaches. We rented kayaks in Southport & rode out to an island. So much fun. We are outdoor enthusiasts & we found that we had a lot to do in Boothbay & Barters Island. I really appreciate the kind owners who were 100% supportive of our having a wonderful time in their home. Also, the home was well kept, comfortable & felt secluded being the last home on a dead-end street. It was perfect for me & the dogs! I would recommend anyone stay here as it was really awesome."

  • The best

    "Wow, what a view: from the balcony, the bed, the kitchen, the garden, we were surrounded by the sea. The cottage has the best location, is very comfortable, clean, a well equipped kitchen and a wonderful view to enjoy while sipping a nice red wine. The area provides for wonderful walks, many beaches close by. Bill the manager was always present and very helpful when we could not get the TV and the futon opened. I recommend strongly this lovely place and its "cat cove" beach, a two minute walk. We had a great week and will be back."
