  • Maine: The way we thought it should be

    "Lofty, overlooking Quahog Bay (Harpswell, Maine) was a new experience that we were looking forward. We were not disappointed . . . how could you be. Lofty’s setting is authentic, coastal Maine -- tall trees, slowly rising and falling tidal waters 30 feet below, the distant sound of an early morning work boat chugging up the bay, incredible sunrises rises that made us rise early to prepare for the sun’s next performance, and an occasional loon calling from the far shoreline. The cottage was perfectly designed to take full advantage of an unspoiled scene provided by nature. Large windows in the eat-in kitchen and living room area with an adjoining expansive deck invite keeping track of outdoor activities – boats and birds and slowly moving ripples on the often placid water. Another smaller, more private deck opens off of the master bedroom. Lofty’s convenient location is about a 10 minute drive from Cooks Corner’s shopping, gas, restaurants, and highway connectivity to Brunswick, Bath, Freeport, Rockland, and beyond. Do you want to get out into nature? Great sites are a short drive away along with cultural destinations, such as the Maine Maritime Museum and museum and gallery on the Bowdoin College campus. Eateries, if you don’t feel like cooking in Lofty’s well equipped kitchen, are wide-ranging in their offerings and price in Bath and Brunswick and only 15-20 minutes away. For a real treat there’s Cook’s on Bailey’s Island. A bright, clean, comfortable, tastefully furnished home with responsive owners who obviously want guests to make the most of their time at Lofty and in Maine. Thanks John and Karen. We hope to return."

  • Wonderful weekend getaway!

    "A group of friends stayed at Aberdeen for a weekend, and we all agreed we wished it was longer (like forever!). The location is absolutely stunning, and while it is remote and secluded it was fairly easily accessible, even in the winter weather. The house is beautifully decorated and very homey, and there was more than enough space for our group of 10. We spent most of our time in the livingroom, gazing at the view and thoroughly enjoying the woodstove. A lot of our visit centered around cooking, and the kitchen is well equipped and large enough for many people to be in it at once. Leading up to our trip, Natalie and her family were very friendly and quick to answer questions about the home and logistics, making the planning process very easy. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone, and hope to come back one day!"

  • Pat & Bill

    "We thoroughly enjoyed staying in your home. The cottage is lovely and very comfortable. It is close to everything and yet very private. The sunrises and sunsets were wonderful! Loved being able to bring our dog with us."

  • Great island. Great host. Well equipped condo.

    "We loved our stay at Diamond Cove. We have two young kids and found the environment very family friendly and safe for exploring. The playground and swimming pool are resort quality. Roger's rental is as advertised and he has thought of everything a guest might need. The bedding is all high quality - even in the children's room, with down and 100. Thoughtful touches and generous amenities are every where and everything is well organized. Our sitters and other islanders we met confirmed that Roger's unit offers more features than most any other rental - including 100+ channel satellite TV, stereo with hundreds of CDs loaded, good bikes for every family member, new washer/dryer, fridge with ice maker, dry goods and cleaning supplies, first aid kit, top quality cookware, dishes, and small appliances. Possible improvements? Carpeted floors are not great for allergies though Roger mentioned he plans to replace them with wood soon. And it would be great to be able to arrange use of a golf cart - both my parents have limited mobility so it would have helped to tour the island and for them to keep up with the kids. Overall - a great vacation. Highly recommended."
