Outstanding property!

  • 5 of 5

Art's house was perfect for our family get together. We had a wide range of ages and interests and everyone was thrilled with the location and the house.

Thank you so much for sharing your home!

We will be back!

It was wonderful! Beautiful views, great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Art's home was spacious, clean, and well organized. The grounds, porches, & view were lovely. And my husband had to drive 4 hours back to retrieve my bag, and Art put him up. - let him stay with him for free! How wonderful that was! So generous!

We also loved kayaking, the sunrises, & the stars!

Another great week in Maine

  • 5 of 5

This property is as lovely as it appears in the photos: comfortable, spacious, and relaxing. You get the impression

you are staying at lovely family home on a quiet country road, minimal traffic and with wonderful views of the Back River seen from the living room, back enclosed deck, kitchen and dining room and back lawn. In working with the owner, Art, you feel as if you are conversing with a good friend. The property allows for launch of kayaks and canoes easily with the tides and the area has many islands and inlets to explore. The home's central location is great for easy day excursions to neighboring areas from Bath to Wiscasset to Boothbay and includes many local attractions and options for dining and shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and accommodations. Wonderful!

A lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The house is all on one floor which is great. We rented only the larger part of the house (there are extra rooms you can also add if you need them which we didn't). We had three bedrooms and two bathrooms, there's a very large kitchen, well appointed with new appliances, and a big dining area with a table that seats six easily or eight in a pinch. The house is nicely furnished with good quality furniture and one bathroom is obviously very newly re-done and luxuriously so. The other bathroom is slightly older but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. One bedroom has a ceiling fan. The two smaller bedrooms share the bathroom, with one of the bedrooms having two twin beds, and the other a queen. Both have three windows on two different sides which allow plenty of breeze, and the house has a large and very nice outdoor balcony which is screened in, and opens on to the living room.

Part of our stay was chilly, and the house was perfectly warm without any heat, although it was down in the upper 50s at night. The rest of our stay was fairly warm. Only one day was the house somewhat uncomfortable, when it was 88 degrees that day and rather humid. Most of the time, fans were quite adequate. The house was clean and well-kept as are the grounds (I say grounds since it is a fairly large property). It fronts on to a large inlet and has a lovely view. I will caution you though that it is not on the ocean, so if that is what you are seeking, this is not your house.

My only criticism, and it really is a matter that is up to personal taste, is that I would put an AC in the bedrooms for those nights that are very warm. I don't think the whole house needs it, but room ACs in the bedrooms might be welcome. There is one sash window in each room which could take it and leave two large casement windows for breeze when that is what is wanted. But many would find I'm sure that this was unnecessary. Really there was only one night that was slightly uncomfortable for the first few hours then the temperature went down as it does at night in Maine.

The owner was incredibly solicitous, friendly, and helpful. I cannot state this enough - he is the IDEAL vacation property owner, and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable, happy and well ensconced even getting in touch twice while we were there. He even offered us two extra free nights as he had no one else coming for a few days. Our stay was great - I highly recommend it in every way.

A thoroughly enjoyable rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two adult children have happily vacationed in this part of Maine for many years. As our family has grown to include two additional spouses and five grandchildren, we needed to find a house to accommodate all of us and be child friendly at the same time. The Baumgartners’ house worked out extremely well. The rooms are spacious including a well equipped kitchen and a screened in porch. The bedrooms are very comfortable and all of the rooms are one level. The additional apartment gave us plenty of room to spread out. The large front and back yards and the fact that the house is located on a very quiet street provide a feeling of privacy as well as a safe place to play and take walks. We enjoy kayaking and the lovely tidal waterfront is very user friendly. Garbage collection is also included which is not the case with many other homes in the area. I didn’t miss not having to drive to the local dump!

The house is an easy drive from Boothbay Harbor, Brunswick and Portland. Reid State Park is beautiful and also nearby. A season pass to the park was provided with the house.

The house is accurately portrayed in the photos and the description on the website. We were not disappointed in any way. Art and Cora are very accommodating and extremely easy to deal with. All in all, this was a most satisfactory rental experience that we would highly recommend.
