"I spent a very pleasant week in this peaceful location with my family, parents and sister's family. Helen was very accommodating when I was trying to plan this vacation, also giving suggestions for things to do and where to get things like groceries from. The house is in a beautiful setting, well away from other houses with plenty of space to play outside for the kids. The pool was a wonderful addition, clean and a good size. The beach is a short walk down a dirt road and small path. Our children aged 9-12 could navigate this on their own. The beach itself is very small at high tide but widens out to a great flat play area when the tide goes out. We enjoyed many games of beach soccer, ultimate frisbee, and beach tennis. The water was cool, but delightful and the kids loved hunting in the rock pools for crabs. The house has many decks and nooks to find a sunny or shady spot to sit in to enjoy the peace, views and wildlife. We saw humming birds but the moose remained illusive. The screened porch was a great place to eat to avoid the mosquitos that emerged at dusk. We explored the nearby towns and beaches and a a fishing trip from Perkins Cove were a highlight, despite no fish to bring home. The house is definitely older, but comfortable and we really enjoyed the beautiful art hung around the house walls. Thank you Helen for a wonderful vacation."

"We just left and we can't say enough good things about this lovely cottage. It made us fall in love with Maine and we hope to return again! It was all the fun of camping but with the indoor amenities of running water, bathroom, etc. The historic cottage is gorgeous with it's exposed beams, stained glass windows, breakfast nook that overlooks the river...not to mention river views from every room. We felt like we were in our own private park, but in a cute little town. A great restaurant in Bayhaven where there's lobster, lobster, lobster. Everyone at Bayhaven were so sweet and fun! They loved my service dog. It was so great to be able to bring the pups and let them run and have as much of a vacation as we did. Building fires, roasting marshmallows, and enjoying some cocktails and making great memories with friends with the sound of the Ossippee River all around. Thank you Jim and Linda for sharing this beautiful spot...We selfishly hope you don't retire to the cottage too soon;)"

"The house was perfect for our girls and children get away. Just a short walk to the beach and a short drive to Kennebunkport and Saco. We relaxed on the deck which was great for having breakfast alfresco and even dinner!
Plenty of space for everyone.
Can't wait to go back again next year!"

Awesome Vacation, this house was a great location.
"Just returned from our 1 week stay at this house/apartment. It was great. Very clean and close to our favorite beach - Footbridge Beach. It was an easy walk to the beach, we went down to the beach a couple of times a day as it was so close. A few yummy restaurants were walking distance as well. Residential area was nice and quiet and close to many other activities by car. Owners were great to deal with and answered all our questions. Cottage had everything we needed, we just brought sheets and towels and beach items of course. Bedrooms were spacious with nice big closets. Would definitely return. Highly recommend."
