"Stayed here (6 people) for a small vacation and loved it. Near beach (10 min walk), delicious bakery (5 min walk), ice cream place. Not a brand new house but lots of room, clean and "homey", with a nice backyard (great for cook outs). Really affordable price well worth the privacy one would not get from a hotel. Owner is very reasonable and promptly responds to any messages. We would stay here again."

"What a beautiful location! The house is perfectly located in a quiet and scenic part of the island. Very low key and friendly people, too. We were lucky to gather here with our 2 sons for a quick family re charge, from our busy professional schedules. We had a nice dinner at the Inn, and also, enjoyed going into Portland for eateries, Sonny's, Empire, and Becky's diner... and The Portland Museum of Art. I would suggest to pay close attention to the ferry schedules, if coming by car, as you have to line up, in the car lane, well in advance of your scheduled passage, because of limited capacity for the cars. Not too bad of a situation, off season. I would caution you on the loft sleeping area, as the access is quite steep, up and down. I would suggest you to bring sheets and towels, for easy departure at the end of your stay.
The bikes did need some attention, so, bring bikes, because, it is an ideal place for riding."

"We came to Maine for our first family (2 grown children & spouses) vacation since the “kids were teenagers”. We usually head south to a beach but decided to try a different locale this year. Highview did not disappoint. The views were spectacular, the house is well stocked, very clean and very well maintained. There are plenty of electronics, games, puzzles to keep everyone entertained but who wants to stay inside when you have a fantastic dock to enjoy? The weather was hot for this time of year but the shade of the trees on the property made it enjoyable. We have never stayed at a vacation rental where such an abundant supply of linens, towels and paper products were provided and the kitchen – has everything you need and then some. Being able to use the “shed” on the dock made for a great fishing experience since we didn’t have to pack up the gear every night. The neighborhood is also great. So picturesque. We met some of the neighbors on our walks and on the water and they spoke very highly of the owner’s family. We brought home tourist literature for the area and passed it along to our friends along with a strong recommendation to stay at Highview – it was picture perfect."
