  • Perfect Maine Island Getaway!

    "We had the good fortune to spend some time on Lower Goose Island in this magical cottage complete with it's own dock, coastline and hand built hiking trails criss-crossing the island. The owners/hosts went out of their way to welcome us and make sure we had everything we wanted and needed to make our vacation over the top enjoyable. We kayaked along the shore and around the Gosling Islands just off of Lower Goose; we went lobstering and learned first hand what hard work it is, but also how fun it is; we even borrowed water skis (on site) and had our kids experience the first time joy of this sport. The cottage is a true work of art and hand craftsmanship. It is beautiful, with lots of extra details that were thought out (old restored doors, exposed beams that were recycled from previous projects) and it has all the amenities that you need: refridgerator, gas stove/over, gas BBQ grill, hot + cold running water and a fully stocked kitchen with any cooking tool you need. It sleeps 6-7 comfortably in 3 twins, 1 queen and 1 full bed. The views from the dining room table, living room and downstairs bedroom are out of this world. I would highly recommend a stay if you are looking for a fun family adventure, want plenty of activities to do, but also want a quiet place to decompress and read a good book!! We will undoubtedly be back next summer for a longer stay!"

  • Great spot for a girls' weekend!

    "A dozen of us rented this place for my sister's 40th birthday weekend, and we had a wonderful time. The house is laid out beautifully, with a bathroom, nice big livingroom, the hot tub, and most of the bedrooms upstairs. Downstairs is a large open layout with the pool table, another living room, the kitchen, dining area, and bathroom with another bedroom off of it. The kitchen was small but well supplied, and we made good use of the long bar off of the kitchen! We were able to spread out throughout the house, with ample room for relaxing, playing games, playing pool, or just sitting and chatting. We had plenty of space to enjoy several different games and puzzles at the same time. The only disappointment was that the motor in the hot tub was not working, so we were not able to use it. The only thing that kept us from giving the property a 5 star rating is that the cleaning was not very thorough. We were the first guests staying at the property after the winter, so I know that the first clean was a big job, but there were quite a few things that were missed. That said, the management was very attentive to any requests that we had, and even let us check in early and check out late because it was still the off season. The surrounding area is very beautiful - you are on the beach, and there are small stores within walking distance. I think it would be a great place to stay in the summer - it was still on the cold side when we were there, so we staying inside most of the time. I would definitely stay at this property again. It would be perfect for a family gathering or a girls' weekend. Thanks to the stair lift that goes upstairs and down, my grandmother was even able to join us for a few hours."

  • Perfect Beach House with a Breathtaking View!

    "We rented this beach house for a beautiful sunny warm week in September. The house was very clean, spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We hosted family and friends on three different occasions during our stay and were positively delighted to have an opportunity to use the beautiful gourmet kitchen. I found it truly delightful to open a drawer and find the exact utensil I needed – from a huge lobster pot to an electric wine bottle opener this kitchen has it all. The kitchen is well stocked with glasses, dishes, serving bowls, pots and pans, and utensils. The attention to detail in this house is amazing. The owners have literally thought of everything you might need during your stay including beach towels and chairs for the beach. There is also a large gas grill on the back deck. The view from this house is truly spectacular! Amazing sunrises and sunsets can be viewed from your easy chair. The beach is right outside the front door and it is a beautiful soft sandy beach – great for walking, running or just sitting and reading a book. We were lulled to sleep every night by the sounds of the ocean. This house is about 15 minutes from downtown Portland, shopping, restaurants, site seeing, and even closer to Portland Headlight at Fort Williams Park - the most photographed lighthouse in the world – don’t miss seeing it! I highly recommend this beach rental. You will not be disappointed. And don’t discount renting in September – it is a beautiful month in Maine, the beach is quiet and relaxing. This house is the best house on the beach and we will definitely rent this house again."
