Recent Orrs Island reviews

  • Perfect visit back home

    "We rented the Orr's Cottage as our vacation home/honeymoon home and it was fantastic. The home is tucked away and has the quiet and privacy of being in a wooded area, but is just steps to the cove (and you can even see the ocean a bit from the window). Being a native Mainer (that now lives in Colorado), it was so nice to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of Maine. The house is very roomy and comfortable. Everyone I spoke to agreed that we got a great deal on our stay. Would definitely rent this property again for our next vacation!"

  • SR from Maine

    "It was a glorious weekend for the board retreat. We were able to mix our meeting times with walks and breathing in the beauty of the place. You have anticipated everything your guests might possibly want or need in the set up of the house. It was perfect for us and we are VERY grateful we were able to hold our gathering there. It is a real gift you are giving people to be able to use this little slice of heaven."

  • The overwhelming beauty of Orr's Island is captured here!

    "Our family cannot thank Peter enough for providing us the perfect setting for an adult family vacation--the first time all of our kids were together in Maine (including spouses and significant others) since 1993. Having traveled from MO, PA and CA, it was worth every mile of travel to this incredible destination. Our anticipation built as we took the winding gravel road down to the end of the Lane, where we found our destination, exactly as described and pictured. Actually, pictures cannot capture the inside character, water views, beautiful gardens/lawn area and the soothing sounds of the ocean. Inside are artifacts, pictures, shelves of books and albums from three generation of family and furniture suited to the period and setting of the home--all of this adds to the magical nature of the location. The views from the living and dining rooms, and bedrooms that face the water are breathtaking. The kitchen, larder, and pantry were well equipped including the large pots that made our lobster cooking easy--especially when we had to fetch the sea water for "the only correct method" by which to boil the lobsters :) The substantial "lobster plates" made serving and eating them a real treat. The griddle accessory for the gas stove was perfect for toasting lobster rolls the next day along with enjoying toasted Anadama bread for breakfast Coffee every morning on the porch was the routine for most all. (The sun rises to the "left" of and moves parallel to the front porch) Whether watching the cormorants, gulls, and songbirds, the lobstermen pulling traps within 100 yards of the shore, or just watching the tides move were relaxing routines that started every day off right. The rocky coast and little rock/sand beach were perfect. We launched our kayaks from the beach (rented two others from H2Outfitters by the Cribstone Bridge--of course there is a single person touring kayak on the property that was used every day) and scoured the sand and rocks for sea glass--we found a lot! Go to Erica's in Harpswell for takeout--recommended by a buddy from Yarmouth who knows how and where to eat, well worth the trip. We also had casual family photos taken by a local Harpswell photographer and were thrilled with how he captured the essence of our family and the beauty of the coast!"

  • Great location, easy instructions

    "This house is nice and big. Huge living room, family room and dining room. Kitchen is surprisingly the smallest room. There's wifi and cable tv which is great. The rooms were big enough for 8 adults. There are only 3 bedrooms, so the last 2 adults have a bed in a small area on the 2nd floor in between the 2 bedrooms. The only thing was that there are only 2 full bathrooms, and they're both in 2 of the bedrooms. There is though, a half bath on the 1st floor. Location is great. Everything in maine is a good 30-60 minute drive, so when I wanted to go up north towards rockland, that was about an hour or so, or if i wanted to go south to portland or freeport, that was another 45-60 minutes south. It's in a very quiet area. Your backyard is the water front. Check-in instructions were super easy also. I would definitely recommend this place."
