Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • Great experience!

    "This was a spacious, comfortable and clean house. The kitchen had everything you could need and there was plenty of space. The location was great; nice local bakery, ice cream shop and dog shop. The beach was a few minutes away, and beautiful. I wish I had time to take a bike ride around the area, but it was a busy week. The owner couldn't have been more pleasant! I would definately stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Portland area."

  • Charming, Well-Located, Comfy

    "My wife, our pets Eli and India and I stayed at the Sheacliff apartment on Orr's Island during the end of July, beginning of August, 2014. What a delightful, clean, beautifully appointed, comfy and well situated accommodation this is. It's just a few minutes walk to the picturesque Lowell's Cove, where we walked almost every morning, and a point of departure for touring the Maine coast along Orr's and Bailey islands, Harpswell and further afield to Freeport, Bath, Brunswisck and Damariscotta. Our hosts Shirley, Kevin and Mark made us feel at home. Do sound out Mark for his recommendations on where to eat locally on Orr's and Bailey islands, as well as farther afield. All of his recommendations were spot on for value, taste, and service. Two recommendations with particularly gorgeous views are the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant and Estes Lobster House with its lobster specials. And for some of the most inventive and delicious tavern fare we've ever had, drive over to Damariscotta and King Eider's Pub. We highly recommend Sheacliff and would happily pay a return visit whenever we stay on the mid Maine coast."

  • Fantastic Home in the Heart of Portland

    "This home was a perfect for us. Initially we chose this property because of the beautiful roof top deck and the grille. We had wonderful breakfasts on the deck as well as some nice evening dinners and cocktails, enjoying the night sky. We stayed the week of Labor Day, which turned out to be extremely warm, and it was perfect in the mornings and evenings. The beautiful plants and flowers make it a great place to relax. The lay-out is nice, as it has 2 totally separate areas for sleeping; one bedroom, the larger of the two, is on the lower level, and the second bedroom is on the 3rd floor; both have their own bathrooms and a washer and dryer located on the lower level bedroom area. One of the most pleasant surprises to us is the incredible kitchen. Not only was it well stocked with almost anything you could need, it was a spacious area for a number of us to prepare a meal, or casually graze. Within a 10 minute walk of most of the restaurants and tourist areas in Portland, we seldom drove, and we enjoyed walking to our destinations, and felt very safe in the neighborhood. Some of the things we like doing are: taking the ferry to Peaks Island and renting bikes; going to restaurants like Fore Street and Back Bay Grille; hanging out at the Portland Lobster Company; and for sightseeing the Portland Discovery Land & See Lighthouse Tour is great. The home is very clean and comfortable, and the homeowners were extremely helpful. The listing description and pictures are very accurate. We would definitely recommend renting this property, and will hopefully return again."

  • Great View!

    "My Fiance and I recently stayed at the Talbot Cottage. I is a wonderful rustic cottage overlooking a bay/river. Over the course of an hour you can watch the tide change as it rises or falls several feet. At night you can sit on the deck and see all the stars, or enjoy the outdoor fire pit. Or cozy up to the indoor fireplace. The cottage is ideally located between the towns of Freeport, where there are several outlets, and Portland. If we have the opportunity we would love to go back and visit the Talbot Cottage again. Give it a try. I think you'll like it."
