Great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful experience in this roomy, well appointed home. There was ample space for group activities, game nights and meals and the many charming bedrooms offered a quiet retreat. The walkability to the general store, docks, restaurants and shops was very convenient. The central location on St George was great for day trips to both Port Clyde and Rockland (and beyond). Our group of children and adults had a fantastic time and look forward to returning next summer!

"Great spot to unwind"

  • 3 of 5

A lovely home, off the beaten path with room for everyone including pets. A good place for walks to the water and excursions to surrounding towns including Rockland, Camden and Port Clyde where there is an excellent ice cream establishment. Luke's seafood restaurant is in town for those who love lobster and who doesn't?

Owner's Response: Oh, we're so glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation! So many close spots to eat within walking distance of the house in the area of the beautiful harbour. The happy clam is another good place to eat. Thanks, Cheryl and John

Perfect Maine Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the beautiful Watts Ave Maine Farmhouse we recently rented. It fit our needs perfectly with ample space for our five Grandchildren, their parents and my husband and me. Our extended family has been coming to Tenants Harbor for years and though we always stayed at the East Wind for a brief visit, this part of Maine seemed to be the perfect spot for outdoor healthy activities for our family this year. We were not disappointed! Whether the day was spent at Drift In Beach, or searching for that perfect piece of sea glass, hiking to Roaring Spouts and the Owls Head Lighthouse or simply skimming rocks and finding tide pools in the harbor, we all had a blast. Coming home to the welcoming spotless accommodations of the Maine Farmhouse at the end of a busy fun-filled day was "the icing on the cake". Thank you so much! I'm grateful for the quality family time we experienced here.

Owner's Response: John and I are so happy you and your family had such a great time! We just love it here, too. We're so glad you got to have this experience. It's wonderful because so many of those sites are so close by, too. You're always welcome to come back! Cheryl and John

Enjoyed our stay

The owners of this seaside home have obviously put a lot of love into this property. It was comfortable, clean, and tastefully decorated. The managers to the property were responsive and helpful. If you love the understated beauty of Tenants Harbor, you will enjoy this property. We hope to return soon.

Great value in beautiful house and setting

  • 5 of 5

Five of my life-long friends enjoyed our week in this lovely home. It is very comfortable, well appointed with exceptionally attractive furnishings and a lovely deck and table for outdoor meals and cocktails. We wish it had a full bathroom on the second floor, but three of us who stayed upstairs easily accommodated. Beds are very comfortable. Setting beautiful with walkable market and restaurant. We'll be back!

Renovated Farmhouse-Watts Avenue, Tenants Harbor-448375

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property for the annual visit of our family which included this year-2015-5 children and 3 adults. It is a very clean and well presented home with everything one would want in a home. Any questions or problems one would have are taken care of immediately as the next door neighbor is the go to person for the owners. From the house it is an easy walk to the harbor and other town amenities. We have rented 6 other homes in the area and by far this is in the best condition of them all.
