  • Cagasa Cottage, a home away from home.

    "We rented the house, and since the beginning I felt really good about it Wendy Marsden treated me like family and open the doors of her beautiful house on the Island. The house had everything that we needed and more for the stayed, I can wait to go back!!!"

  • Great house and neighborhood!

    "We stayed at the house with our 5 y o daughter and her grandparents - so 4 adults and 1 child. The house and yard are lovely and the proximity to the beach, bakery, ice cream shop and downtown Portland is wonderful. The house is funky and artistic and generally well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The 3rd bedroom (not pictured) is a cute sitting room with a loft bed. We had thought about overlapping with my sister and brother-in law and their daughter but Lee warned us against it and he was right, it would have been a bit tight. The loft bed would be great for an older kid or a single person, but might be uncomfortable for couples (though looks like some have enjoyed it). We brought an air mattress and had out daughter in the downstairs bedroom with us - plenty of room. We would definitely consider renting the house again!"

  • 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."

  • The Perfect Spot

    "We stayed here in August for a week around a wedding celebration and couldn't have asked for a more ideal house or location. While we live only a short ferry ride away, we felt like we were vacationing in a different world. The house is perfectly located just a 1/2 mile from the ferry in a quiet neighborhood. We didn't bring a car, but just rode bikes back and forth to the "downtown". Our 9 and 12 year old boys loved heading out on biking adventures by themselves which we felt comfortable with, given the slow island traffic. The house itself is a truly charming historic cottage with built-ins and lovely pine floors. It was exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all manner of utensils & pans. We spent a lot of time playing games on the wrap around deck with great ocean views. We arrived at the house in the dark and the next morning, upon seeing the sparkling light-filled interior and porch, our nine year old announced "I love this house". The boys found a rope swing near the ferry which they loved and we spent time running an biking around the island, building cairns on the nearby beach, and dining at the Peaks Island Inn. The owners could not have been more accommodating from the welcoming note and bubbles for the kids, to a very organized notebook of each appliance in the house and local attractions. We'll be back, thank you so much!"
