"We have had a great vacation at High View. It was our first time in Maine. We came to see the great fall colors. The house has a wonderful location with stunning sun raises over the water which we enjoyed during early breakfasts right from the dining table. The house is very clean and has lots of space. It is very well equipped. The location is very calm and convenient for sight seeing and for shopping. We can only recommend this place."

"We have been having such a good time at this place that we are booking for the 3rd time. The house is perfect. Nice view, well equipped kitchen, spacious rooms, comfortable furniture. Always find the house to be clean and well stocked with essentials. There are plenty of movies for that rainy day. We love sitting at the dining room table and watching for Eagles and other wildlife. Just beautiful! There are plenty of good restaurants close by. We try to find ones that we can visit by boat. Looking forward to our 2016 adventures!!"

"We had a very nice time at the Orr's Cottage. Beautiful area, and a 45 minute drive to Portland where we had amazing meals every night. We had lunch every day down the road at Morse's Cribstone Grille where we had the best lobster rolls we've ever had - and killer cocktails as well.
The cottage was clean, roomy and very well stocked up with kitchen items, towels, pillows, linens, lawn chairs, games, puzzles, etc. Beautiful kitchen! Had we been there longer and weren't so set on so many Portland restaurants I would have cooked a few meals there. The hard water was not a big deal at all. I grew up with well water and just because it has a mineral smell to it (smells like pennies a little) doesn't mean it's dirty. In fact, my skin and hair felt better from the water there than after showering at home in Boston city water.
The house was a little musty smelling when we arrived but as soon as we opened windows and turned on fans it was fine. It's a humid area so maybe the house would benefit from a dehumidifier in between guests when the windows are closed.
There is no longer satellite TV, just an Amazon Firestick so you can access Netflix and Hulu. It was a little hard to use and would freeze during movies sometimes. The WIFI worked great though.
The Orr's and Bailey's Island area is stunning and offers ample hiking trails and walks (Cliff Walk, Devil's Back, Giant's Stairs and Bowdoin Coastal Studies center are all highly recommended). Everywhere was dog friendly and our pup could be off leash the entire time. We saw blue herons and deer in the yard, and heard owls at night. Overall a perfect vacation. We hope to return to the same cottage next year."

"Lovely, rustic Peaks Island cottage - perfect for our trip to the island for a family wedding. Spacious and sweet, with a relaxing atmosphere and nice far water view. From the moment you enter the cottage, you feel like you have come home to a family space."
