  • Wonderful house in the best location!

    "If you're debating on what house to rent in Maine...stop, this is it. We were 6 adults on vacation from NYC and this fit our needs perfectly. The house is huge! and has everything you could hope for. The porches alone are worth the stay, but you can also grab the deck chairs and sit by the ocean which is right there!!! We loved the back patio with the big picnic table with a grill. I have nothing but good things to say about this place and Jane who was lovely to work with and answered all my questions. Bailey island is so cute and quaint and if you do stay here I recommend all things baked from the Salt Cod Cafe which is just 3 min down the road. A blueberry muffin with butter and a cup of coffee sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean is euphoric."

  • 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."

  • Paradise found

    "There is no place in the world like the gills. It was my first time there, but felt like coming home. There is above and beyond any amenity you could wish for in a rental property, no corners cut. Was one of the best vacations we've shared - and wonderful for sharing with friends. the best was mornings on the swing on the great porch, and laying out on the private rocks out front on the water. Already looking forward to returning. Thank you!"
