  • Great Vacation Spot

    "Just spent a week at this wonderful home for a family reunion. The house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The photos were accurate, and the location was the best. Close to downtown, but in a quiet bay location. Would recommend this property to anyone."

  • The Perfect Spot

    "We stayed here in August for a week around a wedding celebration and couldn't have asked for a more ideal house or location. While we live only a short ferry ride away, we felt like we were vacationing in a different world. The house is perfectly located just a 1/2 mile from the ferry in a quiet neighborhood. We didn't bring a car, but just rode bikes back and forth to the "downtown". Our 9 and 12 year old boys loved heading out on biking adventures by themselves which we felt comfortable with, given the slow island traffic. The house itself is a truly charming historic cottage with built-ins and lovely pine floors. It was exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all manner of utensils & pans. We spent a lot of time playing games on the wrap around deck with great ocean views. We arrived at the house in the dark and the next morning, upon seeing the sparkling light-filled interior and porch, our nine year old announced "I love this house". The boys found a rope swing near the ferry which they loved and we spent time running an biking around the island, building cairns on the nearby beach, and dining at the Peaks Island Inn. The owners could not have been more accommodating from the welcoming note and bubbles for the kids, to a very organized notebook of each appliance in the house and local attractions. We'll be back, thank you so much!"

  • Perfect Maine Island Getaway!

    "We had the good fortune to spend some time on Lower Goose Island in this magical cottage complete with it's own dock, coastline and hand built hiking trails criss-crossing the island. The owners/hosts went out of their way to welcome us and make sure we had everything we wanted and needed to make our vacation over the top enjoyable. We kayaked along the shore and around the Gosling Islands just off of Lower Goose; we went lobstering and learned first hand what hard work it is, but also how fun it is; we even borrowed water skis (on site) and had our kids experience the first time joy of this sport. The cottage is a true work of art and hand craftsmanship. It is beautiful, with lots of extra details that were thought out (old restored doors, exposed beams that were recycled from previous projects) and it has all the amenities that you need: refridgerator, gas stove/over, gas BBQ grill, hot + cold running water and a fully stocked kitchen with any cooking tool you need. It sleeps 6-7 comfortably in 3 twins, 1 queen and 1 full bed. The views from the dining room table, living room and downstairs bedroom are out of this world. I would highly recommend a stay if you are looking for a fun family adventure, want plenty of activities to do, but also want a quiet place to decompress and read a good book!! We will undoubtedly be back next summer for a longer stay!"
