"Our family had a fantastic time at Aberdeen! The home was beautiful, roomy and extremely clean. We had everything we needed to fit our families needs. The couple that keeps an eye on the house were so sweet. The owners were the kindest, most helpful people and checked in on us during our trip. We've rented before and no one has ever done that. The view from the home was amazing and the nature surrounding us was unbelievable. We saw huge deer and a bald eagle, to name a few...
If you stay here and are looking for a beach, ask the locals about Cedar Beach on Baileys Island. This hidden gem was loved by all of us...I just wish I knew about it sooner. It's a bit off the beaten path and you need to walk a distance for the car, but well worth it. There is so much to do in the area too...the guys went fishing and the whole family went sailing on a beautiful 70' schooner. A must! We were lucky to be there for the 4th of July...and the fireworks display were AMAZING! And not at all what we expected for a tiny island.
You cannot go wrong choosing this beautiful home."

"We had an amazing stay at this house! It had all the amenities we needed and even our 2 year old enjoyed herself the whole time. We hit up the beach every day, and walked to get ice cream almost every night. Besides being close to Crescent Beach, it was also a short drive to Two Lights and Fort Williams Park (and the Bite into Maine food truck- best lobster rolls ever!) Driving into Portland was a breeze too, so whether you want the quiet of the ocean or the food and shopping of the city, this house is in the perfect location!
The only slight issue we had was the strong smell of moth balls when we got there. Open windows and moving the box of moth balls quickly cleared the smell."

Comfortable home close to all kinds of attractions
"This home has both privacy ( on acres of woods) and is close to loads of activities. Freeport is a 15 minute ride with shops and restaurants. There are two food stores in freeport, as well as a farm stand I found with great food from local farms. State parks are in Freeport such as Wolf Neck State Park that have trails on the coast where we have seen osprey nests and loads of islands. Trips can be signed up for on the LLBean website that take off at the state park. They have everything from kayaking to fly fishing.
Brunswick is about 25 minutes drive but could be an all day event. In the summer the Maine Music Theater has plays which can be booked online ahead or possibly purchased at the door. The weekend I was there the main street in Brunswick was closed for an arts and crafts festival. Both Freeport and Brunswick have music in the park once a week.
Portland has so much to offer, but since my daughter lives in Portland I decided to skip it this year and go out farther north up to Pemiquid light house and a salt water cove that Rachel Carson did studies in. The house offered stars, and in August there were plenty of shooting stars to see. All our meals were eaten outside on the large deck using the grill. I am from N.J., and I thought we had many restaurants. Just so many ethnic places around if you take into account what Portland has to offer. One night we took off for a church meal that is legendary. It was an absolutely beautiful ride down through Orrs Island onto Bailey Island. One Saturday a month, at a small church they have a reasonable meal that is home cooked. This time it was lobster stew. I met a man there who is the 8th generation to live in his island home. I absolutely cannot find such treasures in my home state. Looking forward to coming back to this home because it is secluded yet removed from tourists and traffic. I call it a "home" rather than a house because you get the sense of warmth and history from it. For example, this is the first place I have rented the has so many plants, and items that truly belong to the owner. Unless I move up here myself…I will be back next year!"

"Stayed here (6 people) for a small vacation and loved it. Near beach (10 min walk), delicious bakery (5 min walk), ice cream place. Not a brand new house but lots of room, clean and "homey", with a nice backyard (great for cook outs). Really affordable price well worth the privacy one would not get from a hotel. Owner is very reasonable and promptly responds to any messages. We would stay here again."
