Perfect setting for the perfect house

  • 5 of 5

I had never rented through VRBO, so I was a little concerned. After speaking with the owner, Marie a couple of times, I knew I had nothing to be concerned about. The home was beautiful inside and out. Everything was there that you needed. Marie and Dave thought of everything for this house. We were affected by the power outage that hit the East coast on the 29-30 of October 2017. That's when you find out what kind of owner you're dealing with. Dave and Marie couldn't have done any more for us than they did. As soon as they found we were without power, they took over and made sure we were okay and safe. A neighbor came down to the house to see if we needed anything Their maintaince man also came to the house to check on us, so actually the power outage was kinda nice to be completely out of touch. There was a gas grill to cook hot dogs or the Jenn Air stove we could also cook a few things on, so we were fine. They had a small lantern and a couple of candles, a flashlight and we also had brought with us 2 super power flashlights, so we had everything we needed. The only thing I might consider adding to the house is a small TV for the bedroom. There's a huge TV in the living room and a big one downstairs, so there's more than one TV, but I like to fall asleep listening to TV. It's just a personal choice, but the house is just great and you will not regret renting this house. These are owners that truly care about your comfort and well being and as I saw in a crisis they go above and beyond for their tenants. Thank you Dave and Marie

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. We were so relieved that you were able to experience our home for some well-deserved rest and relaxation, even though the storm prevented you from extending your stay as planned. We have to smile reading your comments about adding the small TV in the Master bedroom. We actually have considered this many times because we, too, have one in our home and love the convenience. Yet, we keep resisting because we also, over the years , truly notice a difference in the degree of restful sleep while in Maine where we have tried to eliminate the electronics in the bedroom. We love falling asleep to the sounds of the loons. That being said, we may give in to the temptation and add the TV. We truly appreciate your comments and will give this more consideration. Thank you for being wonderful guests!

Great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Besides the house being in a great location, there were a lot of items available for a great time without having to leave the house or if the weather isn’t so good. Property owner maintained great communication through the whole process. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary here, and we couldn't have asked for a more lovely home or better location. This was our first visit to Maine, so we were able to take day trips to Acadia NP, Bar Harbor, Camden, Rockport, Belfast, Castine and Blue Hill. It was all amazing, and the best part was coming home to a relaxing evening canoeing on Toddy Pond or sitting in that amazing screened in porch! A couple of loons swam right along side us as we were out on the canoe our last night. So cool! The home was clean, well-equipped, quiet, and more than we could have asked for. We can't wait to return!

We loved this property

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect vacation here. The house had everything we needed, the kitchen is spacious and well stocked. The bedrooms were all nice. Loved the screened in porch, and enjoyed our time on Toddy Pond with kayak and canoe trips. The location is perfect for day trips to Acadia National Park, Belfast for Youngs Lobster Pound, and Boothbay Harbor for whale watching. We were sad to leave, but excited already planning a trip back in a couple of yrs.

Car: necessary

Beautiful waterfront home nestled on a point surrounded by mature forest and fern-covered granite boulders. --Private setting yet convenient to many lovely ocean front communities and restaurants in Blue Hill, Ellsworth, Belfast.

Enjoy canoeing and kayaking on pristine Toddy Pond (included in rental fee), swimming from the dock, or wading in the small coves. (Sandy Beaches also in the area) Toddy Pond offers great fishing and bird watching. Enjoy relaxing around the campfire at night while being serenaded by very friendly and vocal loons.

Toddy Pond is a great launching point for day trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There are numerous hiking trails in the area, many with incredible vistas. On rainy days, guests enjoy shopping in the wonderful gift, pottery and antique shops in Ellsworth, Searsport and Belfast area. Or, if you prefer, spend hours purusing books, antiques and collectibles at a favorite local attraction, 'The Chicken Barn' or visiting the Craig Pond Fish Hatchery. Other local offerings include movie theaters, outstanding chamber concerts, and numerous other types of entertainment.

In general, Toddy Pond is the perfect place for those who care to adventure as well as those who truly want to 'vacate' on their vacation. We've even provided the lake side hammock!
