A beautiful little home awaits on Orr’s Island. Heron’s Rest is a fully equipped home, perfectly organized, spotlessly cleaned. And if you come in May, you will get a house full of the marvelous fragrance of viburnum. Just open the windows.
The house genie, as I began to call him/her whispers in your ears any time you are looking for something--drawer under the toaster, cupboard beside the fridge, look in the drawer of the coffee table.
It’s just a super place to relax and refresh. And the location is convenient for plenty of sight seeing.
What a beautiful slice of heaven!
The house was wonderful and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. I will definitely come back!
Wonderful Island Getaway
Heron's Rest was exactly the getaway we needed. The house is comfortably and attractively furnished and decorated, and very thoughtfully provisioned. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.
A decorated gem
Heron's Rest is bright, comfortable, beautifully designed and tastefully decorated. There are amazing water views from most second floor windows and the sunsets are spectacular. There are hand-made quilts everywhere that add splashes of color and warmth. The cottage is more than fully furnished. The kitchen boasts all the usual appliances plus, among a host of dishes, glasses and utensils, a food processor, coffee grinder, immersion blender and salad spinner. The 60" TV is complimented with surround sound and relaxing recliners.The two first floor bedrooms are equally well appointed, tastefully done and are quite comfortable spaces. It is a few minutes walk to the working wharf and views south to Cook's Lobster and Ale House on Bailey's Island and across the water to West Harpswell. There is some traffic noise since the cottage is near the end of Rte. 24 but it is not a major issue. We will be happy to return and will bring another couple as this place would be perfect for four.
Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Buckeyes love the island
Beautifully decorated and filled with lots of entertainment besides the vistas. A very comfortable home. The stairs are alittle daunting for those who live on one floor. Locals in area in shops and restaurants are so eager to make your stay enjoyable. We have been to area many times and we thought we knew where house was but we did not. My husband is a walker and he so enjoyed his adventures. We were constantly looking at the activity on the lake. It is alittle busy and noisy on the curve of rt.24 but quiets later at night. It would be perfect for many visitors.
This is a lovely well equipped house. The owners have thought about everything. It was spotless clean and well maintained. The furnishings were all high quality and well kept. We enjoyed our time even though it was a very rainy week-wish we could have spent time on the patio. We tried the beach one day but just too clod and windy. We highly recommend Morse's Seafood Restaurant, excellent food and good service. We enjoyed Freeport, Portland, Brunswick and the botanical gardens in Boothbay.
