  • Can't wait for next year!

    "Visiting Scott and Laura's lower goose island home is a wonderful family retreat providing the best of both worlds- an island escape with proximity to Freeport. In addition to relaxing in comfort at the house, we enjoy walking the trails, kayaking, fishing and scouring the rocky beaches for treasures at low tide. Daily swims off the dock continue a longstanding Maine family tradition and our girls love trips (in the rented whaler) to Paul's marina in Brunswick to get ice cream and penny candy. In past years we've also taken the short boat trip to Peary's Eagle Island state park and 'take out' at harraseeket lunch 'n lobster. The animated seals at Grassy 'seal' Ledge are a riot and the birds are a treat to watch. Osprey, eagles, eider ducks, terns, cormorants, gulls, great blue heron, egrets and even a couple of loons welcomed us this year. Speaking of welcome, Laura and Scott are wonderful hosts, happy to share this slice of Casco Bay life. We look forward to first day 'sundown' dockside conversations and lobstering with them at week's end. The house is beautifully crafted and thoughtfully appointed with three bedrooms that work well for our four adult-one teen- two children family. The kitchen is outfitted with a gas refrigerator and stove and a full range of cookware and utensils. With cozy accommodations, a generator available for charging electronics and decent cellular service, this isn't exactly roughing it! The 'composting toilet' and outdoor shower give you the option to tell your friends you were. :) We love it here and look forward to our visit each year. Highly recommended."

  • Perfect!

    "This house was perfect for our old fashioned family Christmas. It had all the comforts of home, the modern amenities expected, and room for us to enjoy the holidays. We loved the fireplace and the baby grand piano, and sitting in the hot tub watching the snow fall. We are looking forward to returning next year. Thanks to the owner and the property manager, the house was amazing."

  • Gem by the Ocean!

    "Our stay at the Potts Point cottage ranks as our favorite in Maine, as we have made annual visits to Brunswick over the last 25 years. The bungalow exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed a comfortable stay complete with picture perfect views of the harbor and walks along the shoreline at low tide with Margaret's dog Lucy. The hospitality afforded to us by Margaret and her daughter Beth made us feel like part of the family. We highly recommend this gem by the ocean to anyone planning a visit to the area. We are already making plans for our next visit."

  • Great location and very comfortable for 3 couples

    "Six of us spent a week in this lovely property and enjoyed it very much. The beds were very comfortable and the common space was lovely and roomy. The house layout gave each couple a nice amount of privacy. The house was well maintained and the owner promptly attended to 1 small need need while we were there. Higgins Beach is about 1/2 block away and it was a pleasant place to walk, people watch, and enjoy the ocean. The location made for easy day trips to Portland, Kennebunkport, Kittery, Pemiquid lighthouse and Freeport. Highly recommended."
