Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • Lovely, restful cottage on the water

    "Rented in August, 2014...lovely spot, easy access, parking and very comfortable. Beautiful views from inside and out. Youth regatta at the next-door yacht club was entertaining. The only cons were the tiny shower (my slim, athletic 10-year-old mentioned it straightaway) and half of the burners on the stove didn't work - we cook. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting the owners as everything was done with key codes, but they were very easy to work with. We would come back."

  • Best Fit for Our Family

    "This is our 7th year bringing my Mom (now 94) up to Maine to reunion with many in our family. The area is close to our relatives but would be worth traveling to anyway. This is the 3rd time we have rented Camp Card Cove and it gets better each time. We chose 2 weeks in Sept. to avoid the summer crowds. The weather was unseasonably cool but beautiful, and we caught the beginning of the color change. There is a downstairs bedroom with step in shower that is perfect for mom, and 2 upstairs bedrooms plus a seperate apartment with 2 twins,a bunk bed and bathroom that is quite private that my nieces family stayed in. We found the next door neighbor is a Lobstaman and they delivered 40 pounds of Lobsta and some crabs right to our dock via skiff at a good price. We feasted for 3 days. Our hosts are wonderful people and offered us the use of kayaks and a canoe, which really made the visit all that more enjoyable. The huge lawn facing the cove is ideal for soccer and other family games. We are only about 15 minutes from good shopping in Cooks Corners ( Super Walmart, etc.) so it is easy living there. This place is hard to beat. We'll be back again for sure"
