Recent Maine reviews

  • Lots of amenities!!

    "Every year three couples take a fall trip and this year we chose Maine. Looking on VRBO for a place to stay we found this wonderful very roomy place, from the beginning, Doris was very easy to work with. We got in after dark and was kind of hard to navigate but we found it and was very much surprised to find out how big it was. All the rooms on main floor are very roomy. The next morning we woke up to beautiful views overlooking the inlet. We got to enjoy fall foliage, pumpkin festival, boat ride, lobster dinners cooked at the house, fire in the fire pit on patio, full moon and bottles of wine and beer. The house is well equipped for everything you need, games and books included. All 3 couples agreed this was the most spacious place we have rented in our 20+ years of doing our fall trip. We would definitely recommend it to others. We all wanted to stay an extra week but had to get back. Thanks for sharing your Beautiful Home with us."

  • Solar Simplicity with an Ocean View

    "We loved staying at Campa Bella! It is a perfect place to stay with dogs since it is not on the main road so you don't have to worry about the dogs running out the door and getting hit, not that there are many cars even on the main road. The cottage is clean and comfortable. The deck is large enough that as the sun sets behind the cottage you can still catch rays while reading a book in the comfortable La Fuma recliners. The well water pump in the kitchen was easy and fun to use. I enjoyed using the sun shower, too. Every day after our hike in Acadia we swam in Long Pond with our dogs. Most of the summer residents swim there as well. A popular spot! Found a great trail that leads to a little outcropping that is off the main road for sitting by the pond. It is just before you get to the main beach. The trails are beautiful but some are a bit overgrown. The main trails along the ocean are spectacular! Enjoy!"

  • Beautiful relaxing vacation

    "We stayed here with 4 adults, a 7 year old child and a dog. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived because the photos do not do the house justice. The entry level has 2 bedrooms (one with a king bed and one with a queen bed) and a bathroom. The bedrooms were very pretty, clean and comfortable with ceiling fans and air conditioners. The basement level (one level down) has a bigger bathroom and a room with 2 twin beds. There is also a loft area above the living room which had a small sleeping area which was perfect for our 7 year old. The house was clean and well maintained with a nice supply of dishes, towels, etc. We spent alot of time at the waterfront area which was small but worked well for our group. The dock was twice as wide as shown in the photos and more sturdy than I was expecting. The hammock was a terrific place to read and watch the water. The lake itself has boat traffic but it was very quiet and minimal while we were there and we had a great time exploring with the 2 kayaks and canoe that were on the property. It is a great place to fish and swim - there's a rocky entry and bottom for the swimming area but it was fine with swim shoes. One warning that there are alot of stairs to get down to the waterfront so it would be difficult for someone with disabilities and would be alot of work with very young children. But it worked perfectly for a 7 year old and a medium sized dog and gave us extra exercise. The owner was very responsive via email before we arrived and was quick to answer any questions that we had. I would definitely recommend this rental as a beautiful stay for someone looking to relax and enjoy the water!"

  • Great place and close to town!

    "We came in for a conference and it was perfect! There were 4 of us. It was a cozy little place with everything we needed. We bought some lobsters on the first night at the little grocery on the main street and cooked them up at the house. Everything we need was there. Nice little rooms to sit in at night and relax. We would definitely stay here again!"

Maine Travel Tips

Maine is a state where the great outdoors are embraced and celebrated. Here are some highlights for your trip to this idyllic New England state:

Portland

The Portland metro area boasts more than one-third of Maine’s population, and this quaint but vibrant city has plenty to do and see:

- Check out Henry Wadsworth-Longfellow’s 1786 home, which has been elegantly restored in the heart of Portland on Congress Street.

- Go shopping on historic Commercial Street.

- If you are interested in the Civil War, come to the Maine Historical Society to see an ever-changing exhibit and learn about the conflict.

- The Portland Head Light is located at Cape Elizabeth Maine and looks like the quintessential, postcard lighthouse.

- The Portland Museum of Art has a large collection of Winslow Homer’s New England-inspired paintings.

- Climb to the top of the Portland Observatory - built in 1807 - to see beautiful bay views.

- Check out Old Port - a downtown neighborhood with cobblestone streets and 19th century brick buildings. Grab a meal at Grace or The Corner Room Italian Kitchen & Bar and hit up eclectic boutiques like Abacus Gallery and Maine Potters Market.

- Visit the Victoria Mansion, an opulent Italian villa-style home with a baroque interior. It was built before the Civil War for a hotel magnate.

Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor is another popular place for visitors due to its proximity to Acadia National Park. Here are the top things to do in and around Bar Harbor:

- Visit Acadia National Park. You’ll have to choose your activities carefully because there’s too much to do here. If you enjoy hiking, there is a great variety of trails. Check out Ocean Path, which is 4.4 miles long and leads from Sand Beach to the sea cliffs. There’s also the Great Meadows Loop, which begins in Bar Harbor. For more intermediate trails, hike up Cadillac Mountain on the North Ridge Trail.

- Experienced mountain climbers and hikers should consider climbing Penobscot Mountain for stunning panoramic views.

-Take a 20-mile bike ride on Park Loop Road. It provides breathtaking vistas as you ride through the forest and near the ocean.

- For a more relaxing look at Acadia, stroll through the flowery Wild Gardens.

- After a day in the Acadia National Park, let loose at the Atlantic Brewing Company in Bar Harbor for local craft brews and delicious barbecue.

Other Maine Attractions

There’s plenty to do in Maine outside the major tourist areas:

- Check out Old Fort Western, built in 1754, which is the oldest wooden fort in New England. Benedict Arnold used this site before staging his assault on Quebec during the Revolutionary War. It’s located in Augusta.

- Go skiing at one of many resorts in lightly populated northern Maine, including Shawnee Peak, Black Mountain, Sunday River and the ever-popular Sugarloaf Mountain.

- Visit Egg Rock Lighthouse in serene Winter Harbor, which is located just across Frenchman Bay from Bar Harbor.

- Bring the kids to Funtown Splashtown, a combined waterpark and amusement park in Saco.

- Take a seaplane ride from Acadian Seaplanes in Rangeley Lake, or go snowmobiling in Coos Canyon.

Events

The American Folk Festival is held for one weekend at the end of August in Bangor. Despite its name, you can see and take part in both American and international cultural traditions. The festival includes music and dance performances, authentic artisanal crafts and both ethnic and locally grown food.

What better way to celebrate Maine culture than with a seafood feast? Check out the Yarmouth Clam Festival, a weekend event in mid-July that is just a 15-minute drive north of Portland. The Yarmouth Clam Festival is all about competition. Watch a clam-shucking contest or the Clam Classic canoe and kayak races. Don’t miss the diaper derby, a race with unsuspecting babies and toddlers, and end the night with fireworks over the sound. If you haven’t had your fill of shellfish, check out the Maine Lobster Festival, a five-day festival in early August in Rockland. There will be live music, the Smokey’s Greatest Shows Carnival, a 10k run, plenty of lobster dinners and activities for kids like, the cod fish carry.

If you aren’t traveling with kids, head to the classy Harvest on the Harbor event at the end of October in Portland. Sip on some wine, watch cooking demonstrations and sample local cuisine.

Windjammer Bays in Boothbay Harbor is a celebration of Maine’s sailing heritage and the importance of the sea to the locals. Windjammers are large, elegant sailing ships with three to five masts that were used in the 19th and early 20th centuries to ship goods. Aside from the typical festival offerings, watch an antique boat parade and take a cruise on a majestica windjammer.
