I was born and raise in Maine, went to college in Arizona and moved to New Orleans in 1995. After living in New Orleans for over 12 years, we moved back to New England to enjoy the great way of life!

This house has been the site of many reunions with friends and their children who live through out New England. My friends have been calling the house CAMP ANDY for years, their kids love the heated pool and the adults love the big hot tub!
Spent a couple days at Andy's Retreat and it turned out to be just that.
Andy has a gorgeous home with plenty of wonderful amenities. This was our first time not staying in a hotel and I am glad we didn't. We could not have asked for a better place to be. Our 6 year old had plenty of room to run around and my wife was totally in love with the kitchen and the beautiful back yard. I found a home in that comfy sun room. His pictures on-line are amazing, but the home itself is better.
Andy himself is an amazing host. He was there when we showed up and gave us the tour. He stayed in-touch during our stay, making sure that everything was alright, which it was. One of the nicest people I have met.
Any time we travel to Maine in the future, we will be staying at Andy's. Thank you Andy.
Andy was a great host and met us at the house when we arrived. He gave us a short tour and explained the radio as well as how to control the spa.
Plenty of space- nice size bedrooms and a perfect backyard to grill, eat, relax, swim and listen to music on the outdoor speakers.
I would recommend this house to couple and families!
About a 10 minute drive to Downtown Portland!
This location is very close to Portland, and also allows for day trips to great destinations in all directions. The home itself is very comfortable with amenities great for entertaining and relaxing. From the shaded hot tub to the awning over the deck, to the pool with heat cover, to the whole house audio system --- All in all it is a great choice for a home base for the week!
Staying at Andy's retreat was a terrific experience. The house is very comfortable and up to date. The AC made it very comfortable temperature wise. We loved the Hot Tub and large heated pool. They were used several times of day and the outdoor speakers enhanced the experience. Andy made himself very available if we had any questions. We followed some of Restaurant recommendations and had great meals.
A Great Experience! Thank You Andy!
The property itself is wonderful! Very clean, comfortable, and wonderfully decorated. Andy made us feel right at home from the moment we entered his home. Our two young boys had the best time in the pool, and the hot tub was a nice way to end the day. This home is centrally located to anything you would want to do. Old Orchard Beach was just a 20 min car ride, and downtown Portland was about the same distance. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and we cant wait to do it again.
We had a great time staying at this house. The house is beautiful and there was plenty of room for our family of six. The pool and hot tub are awesome. Andy's was very helpful and communication was great.
The house is close to quite a few really scenic areas in Maine and to Portland. Would definitely come back!
7 miles from Portland's Old Port and a quick 20 minutes to LL Bean and Freeport outlet stores.
