Slice of paradise
The pictures do not do this house justice. It's so much better. Gail and Mark are wonderful people. The view is fantastic. We have stayed in about 20 different rental houses. The Millers house is one of the best stocked houses we have rented. All kinds of pots and pans, cleaning supplies, and even quite a few spices. This house is not the Ritz, but it is clean, and very well maintained. If we wanted Lobster all we had to do was call or text Gail and she would drop them by, or let us know when Mark would be coming back and we would walk down to the dock and get them right off his boat. We had lobster every night except one during our stay. There is a big lobster pot at the house for cooking them up. We loved talking to the Millers and learning all about the industry and what went in to getting lobsters to the market. I now know that lobster men have to be the hardest working people in the world. Mark would get up at 3:30AM, leave to get bait. Be to the boat by 5:00 and heading out by 6:00
AM. He would not come back till late afternoon to unload his catch, and clean the boat. If the restaurant on the pier was open he would go there next to help cook, and would be cleaning floors till 9:00PM. Next morning the same thing. Gail made a big thing of the noise in the early morning with all the lobstermen working, but quite honestly I never heard them and most times I was up having coffee and watching all the activity. There is lots of small towns near by and they each have something to see. Just remember there are no straight roads in Maine. We used WAZE to get around. If the distance was 30 miles to where you wanted to go it would take almost an hour to get there. Just double the miles and you will be pretty close in minutes. ALL the locals drive no more than 5 MPH over the speed limit. They do not pass, and they always follow at least 5 car lengths behind.
I found that very refreshing. Boothbay Harbour was my favorite. The Miller's house is fantastic if you just want to relax, take in the beautiful views, and do some sight seeing. Thank you Gail and Mark for a wonderful trip, and for sharing your home with us.
A bit of "Almost Heaven" in Maine!
What a beautiful place to stay on the coat of Maine! Right on Wheeler's Bay at a working lobster pound where we enjoyed the tides coming & going and the lobstermen at their boats each day from our deck. The home was neat, clean, and had every amenity necessary for a week's stay. Storage abounded in the bedrooms and bath, and the beds were so comfy. Although we never met our hosts Gail & Mark, a couple phone calls and texts were all we needed for minor questions. There was coffee ready to brew the first morning until we could get to the nearby Wal-mart for groceries. It was unfortunate that we chose this time of year as their lobster shack on their dock was closed for the season, but we managed to drive around and find our lobster rolls and dinners nearby. All in all, a great relaxing visit to our favorite state, second only to our "Almost Heaven" West Virginia!
Most relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Very nice house with an incredible view. Perfect peaceful location. The Miller's were terrific. Answered any questions we had and were very helpful. The weather was perfect this week. We spent time out on the deck watching the working wharf and wildlife. Beautiful sunrises and incredible show of stars at night. Exactly what we were looking for.
This is amazing place to stay, the house is actually bigger than it looks on line and its very clean and stocked with everything you would need. Views are beautiful. Cannot wait until we can come back and bring friends with us next time.
The Quary house is wonderful!!! We had never been to Maine and had a wonderful time! The house is clean, comfortable and has everything one needs to be cozy and even have some friends over to watch football. The view is so awesome we looked forward to just staying "home" one day. It is a working fishing pier and watching the boats come and go was fascinating. Its beautiful! Gail was great and very accommodating!
Go to "the Happy Clam" in Tennants Harbor for awesome German food and lobster!

Everything we needed to prepare and cook the food we
brought was available.
Gail was very friendly and helpful.
Plenty of space in all the rooms, could have used another chair in living room.
And the best part-- the view and deck. Hope to go back!!
