Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • This is the place to stay !!!

    "This is the place to stay!! South Portland and the Willard Beach neighborhood in particular is quite a unique area with Scoops Ice Cream, a bagel shop, and several locally owned very good restaurants within walking distance (or very short driving distance). This cottage is clean and is beautifully situated on the property of the owner allowing views of the bay and Willard Beach and the islands of Casco Bay. I am so happy I found this cottage. I had a fabulous week there, exploring all up and down the Maine coast (from Kennebunkport to Camden), island hopping off the coast of Portland, discovering lighthouses along the way, visiting interesting towns, and enjoying scenic drives (especially Routes 1 and 88 going north from Portland to Camden, then south through Cape Elizabeth to Old Orchard Beach and Kennebunkport) ~ stay off the toll highway...take the scenic routes -- lots to do and see in the whole area and this beach cottage at Willard Beach is great to have as a home port during your stay. The owner provides you with a list of interesting things to do and good places to eat. There is plenty to see and do in a week's time and still have time to kick back and relax, walking on the beach, or just enjoying watching the boats in the bay from the front porch of the cottage. The cottage is very convenient to Portland without having to be right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Portland all the time (Portland is very touristy and can get pretty crowded with traffic along the wharf, but it doesn't take long to figure out how to get around and where to park when there are things you want to do there - like riding the Casco Bay Ferry to do some sight seeing and island hopping or taking a Windjammer sailing cruise). Be sure you have your camera ... there are lots of photo opportunities waiting to be taken !!"

  • 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."

  • 8/16-8/23/2014 Fabulous week at Camp Card Cove!

    "Karen & John, my family and I are so happy that we discovered your beautiful home on Camp Card Cove. The house was perfect for our group, 6 adults 2 children ages 9 & 12 and two dogs! Well equipped, spacious and very comfortable! Location is great if you like to be active or simply sit back and take in the beautiful view with a book, or both! Haprswell is a low key Maine town, which was perfect for us! Definitely recommend the local trails for some nice hiking, "The Cliff Trail" has amazing views and is a bit challenging, be sure to have pets on a leash and children in hand as you approach the cliff, it's worth the hike to the top! Also, another local favorite was our sail on the 70' Schooner Alert, our Captain's Bethany and Perry gave us a fabulous sail and even welcomed our dogs aboard, amazing! Kayaking and canoeing right off the dock is awesome, had some great workouts paddling back to the house as the winds picked up! There fire pit is awesome, we had a few nights of enjoying time by the fire and taking in the beautiful star filled skies, watching for shooting stars and roasting marshmallows! Loved every minute of this trip. We will be back. Thanks again Karen and John, a wonderful time was had by all."

  • A Most Excellent Stay!

    "We were guests at this wonderful coastal Maine retreat for a four week period earlier this Spring. We arrived with snow on the ground, and all was prepared for our arrival. We made a fire in the wonderful fireplace, and relaxed in the stillness of the Maine woods...what a wonderful location. Close to Freeport, Brunswick and Portland, the setting was perfect. We shopped at Whole Foods in Portland, cooked our meals in this cozy kitchen, and ate our meals in the breakfast nook watching the trees / wind / snow throughout our stay. We saw deer and wild turkeys as well as a dark starry sky and even a full moon! The beds were comfortable, and the garage provided protection during some stormy days. A perfect way for us to visit family close by and have a wonderful Easter dinner for all. Thank you Wayne for sharing such a wonderful getaway!!"
