Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • A wonderful week on Winding Way

    "My three generation family just returned from a wonderful week on Peaks Island at this beautiful, comfortable home. It's a private, quiet space that has room for some to sit and read quietly on the deck while bird watching and for some to kick a soccer ball around on the open grounds. We biked and walked everywhere from the beach to the tennis courts. Jean and Ralph are wonderful hosts who are helpful when needed. My grandchildren call it our summer stay house, and we can't wait to return."

  • Excellent Location

    "The very best part of this apartment is it's location. It affords easy access to several great restaurants, funky cafes, delicatessens and coffee shops. Downtown Congress Street with it's museums, more restaurants, shops and weekly farmer's market is but a block away. Merrill and Cumberland County auditoriums as well as the Old Port are also reasonably walkable (although the walk home in very cold or very hot weather would take some effort as it is uphill all the way!). We also found the neighborhood easy to walk - many of these past fabulous old homes and gardens. The owner and neighbors were friendly and helpful. The sitting area of the apartment is quite small but the photos are accurate and complete, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and everything was in good working order and very clean. We spent two weeks in the summer, so found the washer and dryer in the apartment to be especially welcome. We would eagerly recommend this second floor apartment to anyone who is comfortable with stairs."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

Portland & Casco Bay Travel Tips

Portland Vacation Rentals for a Year-Round Tourist Destination

As a year-round tourist location, it’s hard to beat Portland and Casco Bay in Maine. Portland vacation rentals are ideally placed for this culturally and historically rich area. Day and night, the bustling Portland harbor is buzzing with activity, with tourist boats coming and going, fishermen at work and restaurants filled with people. Choose a Casco Bay lodging choice near the harbor to be in the middle of the action. You will find a Maine lodging choice to suit any family or group of friends looking for a vacation in this scenic area.

Portland Vacation Rentals in the Largest of Maine’s Cities

Portland is the largest of Maine’s cities and it is the hub of its renowned art community. Thus, Portland vacation rentals are in one of the most sought-after locations in the region. Dating from the 1800s, the Old Port is now a high-class shopping area with a wide variety of restaurants around your Casco Bay lodging choice. The city takes its heritage seriously and buildings around your Maine lodging choice are maintained to an exceptionally high standard.

Casco Bay Lodging for Ferries and Hot Air Balloons

A benefit to Portland vacation rentals is their proximity to the ferries to Nova Scotia. It’s worth jumping a ferry to head off to Casco Bay’s Calendar Islands for a great day out. The adventurous traveler in a Casco Bay lodging choice might prefer to undertake a slightly more unusual mode of travel and opt for a hot air balloon trip as a novel way to see the region. Staying in Maine lodging, you will wonder how many times you will have to return before you’ve seen it all!

Maine Lodging For Culture for Kids

For the culturally minded, there are so many museums and so much history here that you will struggle to fit it all in within just one vacation. Portland vacation rentals cater for the culturally minded children too with their own museum. From Casco Bay lodging you will find an amazing variety of walks and excursions to be undertaken. While staying in a Maine lodging, there is also the chance to see the Portland Pirates play hockey or the Sea Dogs if baseball is your game.
