"My family has been coming here to this home for nearly 10 years. The boys couldn't have imagined summers without being here. Now grown up my husband and I still can't get here enough. The minute we step off the ferry were in heaven. We completely decompress here like no other place. Love the people, love the privacy, sunsets, no thought of time, it's home for us!!! Thank you for sharing S&G"

"The cottage was very cozy and well- furnished with quality kitchen items. The outside area and the cove were wonderful places to spend the day. The ocean and island view from inside was so beautiful and all the furnishings were comfortable and clean. We were able to do great kayaking and a little swimming. It was a great place for the two of us with room to entertain family in the day.
The carpet was a little worn, but I would stay there again without hesitation."

"Arrived here at the end of a short, scenic drive out from the Portland, Maine Jetport. I was greeted by the owners to an awesome marine panorama with views, from atop a embankment just feet from the high tide line, east across the sound to Harpswell and looking southward. The unit itself tends toward pleasant rustic and includes a kitchenette with fridge, two large bedrooms, a bath and a wonderful glassed-in sitting room. A cable TV was available, but I don't do TV, and a small propane heater was not needed in the warm July weather. A short drive takes you to the town of Brunswick, which has numerous stores and restaurants, and also accesses coastal route 1 - the main gateway to the beautiful Maine coast both north and south. The sound of the seabirds and the tidal flows lulled me to sleep and greeted me each morning. Finally, watching the private fireworks on the far side of Harpswell Sound the evening of the Fourth was a treat. I'd recommend this place to anyone."

"The Gills could not be anymore charming and comfortable, and the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing week with family & friends. The attention to detail was amazing and found myself roaming the house just looking at everything which really pulled in the essence of Maine and Bailey's Island. The ocean views are spectacular and were especially enjoyed from the large deck around the house, with swinging chair. Their is a secret swimming hole right out front of the house where we spent our afternoons jumping from rocks. The house was very clean, the beds super comfortable and I think the upstairs shower is now one of my favorites ever. Staying at the Gills really made our vacation one of the best ever and can not wait to comeback!"
