Escape To Maine At Sea Cove
average rating of 5.0 based on 29 reviews

Convenient to shops while serving as an oasis

  • 5 of 5

The reaction of my wife was amazing. We typically stay in four star hotels and decided to expand our options. The house rental made our family get away awesome. My two young kids had room to stretch their mind - imagination and body. Staying here provided a perspective of what it would be like to live in Maine versus, a hotel reminds us that we are merely visitors in a revolving door. The home decoration is inviting and the home itself is comfortable. A television in the main room be the only addition I would make. Thanks for the stay. Greg of Virginia

Breath taking home and view

  • 5 of 5

We were in awe with the home and especially the location with the break taking view of the wildlife refuge and sea. Taking a walk through the refuge was a perfect way to start each day. The home was beautifully decorated and all of the details were well thought out. In previous homeway rentals, sometimes the kitchen was missing things to cook a complete meal….This kitchen had everything we needed.

We will definitely be coming back.

Fantastic location, home, and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Great home in an ideal location and setting. Wonderful views from nearly every room, tastefully decorated, and well stocked and furnished home. More importantly, Linda went above and beyond to do the little (and not so little) things that made our stay special.

Wonderful Setting and Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our daughter's wedding. The first week we had two grandparents, four parents and four grandchildren (including a six-week-old) staying in the house and we all had plenty of space --even when we invited the in-laws and out-of-towners over for brats and hamburgers. The wedding was at Maine Audobon - Gilsland Farm, so moms, sisters and sisters-in-law all had their done at the house -- and then could have walked next door!...The second week four of us stayed on and toured Portland, lighthouses, Maine's "West Coast" and Penobscot Bay. One night we sat outside to watch for the Strawberry Moon and had a campfire. The house was perfect for all we had planned and all we were able to do.
