"We have not stopped raving about the week on "our island" since we returned from our trip! After being away from the Maine Coast for many years, we were itching to get back to the beautiful summers we remembered. We will never stay away again (we are already deciding when to go back to the island for 2016). It is incredible how quickly the day went by while we were "doing nothing"! We felt no need to leave the island at all! My husband ad I are on the go all the time and this was the perfect vacation for us. We had glorious weather, fabulous food (Jim supplied wonderful lobster & fish; Tudor is an incredible baker!) Catur was very responsive to our needs. The island has a spectacular location, the cottage is beautifully built, the grounds are wonderful to explore and the great city of Portsmouth is very close by if one feels the need to get off the island. It is not often a vacation spot exceeds our expectations - Gooseberry Island certainly did!!! For a couple, single individual or a family, what a special experience it will be. Folks back home can't believe the pictures! Thanks again for everything!!! B&M"

"This home was perfect for our 3 generation family vacation. It had everything we wanted: a bed for everyone, 2 full bathrooms, well supplied kitchen, outdoor space, grill, laundry, and close to beaches. The location was also great for beaches, golf, lobster, restaurants, shopping and a quick rainy day trip to Portland to visit children's museum and a brewery. Enjoyed meeting the owners."

"That is exactly how I feel when I come for a visit at Rick's Haven. I rented this adorable spot from Sept-Dec 2014. The unit is clean, comfortable and offers all of the conveniences of home. Pour yourself a cup of coffee or glass of wine and take in the stunning marsh view at dawn or dusk. The owner's dock offers kayak/canoe access to the marsh. Steps away from the pristine Goose Rocks Beach and minutes drive to the port and Cape Porpoise Lighthouse. Portland is an easy 40 minute drive. I am just home from a recent visit and can not wait to return. The owners are wonderful and hospitable people who have become much like family! Great spot for couples, families and dog owners."

"My husband, our dog and I spent a week in July 2015. It was just right- the cabin felt clean and homey. The kitchen is well equipped and large enough for real cooking. There are books and magazines and games and a tube and a kayak and a canoe. And a huge outdoor fireplace for snuggling. The deck is large and perfect for reading, grilling and eating. We saw practically no other people all week, and enjoyed the peace and quiet."
