"We had a blast!! Very lovely place with everything we needed. I must first commend the O'Brian family for not only sharing their little piece of Maine with us but also for being the best owners we have ever dealt with. They were there for us every step of the way and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank You!!!! We spent a lot of time on the deck and down by the water. We were blessed by many different types of wildlife but I think our favorite were the horseshoe crabs that seemed to visit the shore each evening. However, the most beautiful part of staying at this rental was the most amazing sunsets we have ever seen.
Ok, well that and the lobster that we had almost every night. Eating them on the deck in the sea breeze just seemed to make them taste that much better. My fiance surprised me on our last night with a huge 3+ pound monster (Bob) that I gladly devoured."

"Lovely long weekend in this well-appointed home. Easy access to the first floor bedroom for my elderly mother-in-law and to the front lawn to enjoy the amazing view of the private cove. Kitchen was well equipped, house nicely decorated and furnished. Close to local amenities yet felt away from it all!
Owner and caretaker a pleasure to work with and we look forward to an opportunity to return."

"This getaway is absolutely perfect! My husband and I have camped at Hermit Island for the last 22 years, but due to injuries have decided to try something different. Knowing he would miss striper fishing from his kayak and the sound of the waves I went online to find a little peace of heaven with the same feel. I can't recommend this rental enough, although I almost hate to as we would love to stay for several weeks next summer! The cottage has a comfy bed, shower, living room, kitchen , deck and grill. The beach is just steps away with easy trails to find secluded spots to spend an afternoon reading or just listening to the sounds of the ocean. Bill, the caretaker, and his family were so welcoming. His daughter makes and sells beautiful sea glass magnets that are memorable treasures. We can't wait to go back."

"There is no place in the world like the gills. It was my first time there, but felt like coming home. There is above and beyond any amenity you could wish for in a rental property, no corners cut. Was one of the best vacations we've shared - and wonderful for sharing with friends. the best was mornings on the swing on the great porch, and laying out on the private rocks out front on the water. Already looking forward to returning. Thank you!"
