Cozy and quiet
Home was very clean and comfortable. Area was nice and quiet. There was a streetlamp outside bedroom window, but it went off automatically around 11, so don't worry! Couldn't find a corkscrew in the kitchen though. Loved exploring Bath and neighboring areas - the Harpswell Cliff hike is a short loop, but beautiful. And they encourage building fairy homes off the trail using fallen branches/bark/moss, etc. Very fun to walk and discover the creative constructions!
Love this place would go back
Very clean and comfortable. If you go here a must is to go to the Maritime Museum, we spent two days there it was very interesting.
Leaf Peeper Paradise
Beautiful apartment in a beautiful area! The apartment was perfect for our little family adventure. We spent most of the weekend in exploring local parks and towns, coming back to the property only to realize the amazing views of the fall leaves and water “in our own back yard”.
Quiet, comfy plus extras!
We love booking places to stay through VRBO and have yet to be disappointed. Darryl & Jenny's place has everything we needed and more... Beautiful setting, easy to find, full kitchen, SUPER comfy bed plus extras we don't always see... Laundry supplies (detergent and fabric softener), shampoo/conditioner/body wash, cooking basics (oil, salt &pepper) plus fancy flavored coffee (💕💕). This was our first trip to Maine so we spent a ton of time visiting other areas recommended by friends and didn't get a chance to canoe or spend as much time at the property as we would have liked, but we did walk down to the waterfront and the cabin - the acreage is beautiful. We are sad we didn't get to meet our hosts in person, but they were always immediately accessible via phone when we had questions and super helpful with our last minute change in arrival date. Thank you for a great trip!
Charming, cozy and clean
Very pleased with our stay here. Darryl and Jenny were great with communication, excellent hosts. The apartment is clean and has everything you need, and the bed is very comfy! Great location if you want to be in Bath, near grocery stores and cute restaurants, plus close to Portland and Freeport. I'd recommend this place and would stay again.
Not Really Waterfront
This review is about a 50/50 mix. There was good, and there was not so good. 2 1/2 stars really.
First the good. The actual living space is wonderful! The space and separate rooms, make it a great little place to unwind, and refresh. The drawers and cupboards have everything you can think of, from pots and pans to dish soap and seasonings. The TV is a large new flat screen with an awesome cable package. We watched Goonies as a family, ate popcorn and had a blast! The yard has a tree swing and great little playground, which our kids adored! The land itself is very pretty with lots of barns and greenery. The owners kept to themselves, which was nice since it could feel awkward staying in someone's guest house. The guest house was clean, except for the occasional daddy long leg spider.
Now for the bad. We chose this particular spot for the sole purpose of being on the waterfront. The property claims to offer a waterfront setting and canoeing on the bay. The first thing we did when we arrived was check out the waterfront. We found ourselves surrounded by dog feces as far as the eye could see. Wearing flip flops, we were all covered in feces and were blown away by the sheer volume. It in our opinion made it impossible to enjoy the waterfront area, even in boots. We turned our attention to the canoes, which were left outside, with broken seats and were filled with spider nests. When we tipped them over, it was like a horror film as the countless spiders came rushing out at us. We are not city folk, we camp, love the outdoors and endure the elements with the best of them, but this was ridiculous. The life vests were broken, sun bleached and filled with spiders as well. We realized that we would have to completely scrub clean the canoes , and rid them of the spider nests as well as purchase new life vests for our kids in-order to make our canoeing dream a reality. We decided instead to not return to the water at all, and rent a canoe at another location. We could have addressed these issues with the owners, but staying right on the property made it feel uncomfortable.
This is not a "waterfront" property as advertised. No one would want to spend time in feces and spiders. These problems need to be fixed or the owners should change it to, "water-view" property, as it does have a very pretty treetop water view.
All in all we wouldn't come back, or recommend this spot. However, if the waterfront issues were addressed, it would be a home-run. Too bad.
