Guestbook comments from the owner


After staying in hotels in the Old Port for my past 7 trips to the area, I decided to try renting a house instead. I couldn't have picked a more cozy, clean and centrally located home. The warmth of family was felt throughout the house. Upon arriving there were freshly baked blueberry muffins and a book with all of the local attractions with detailed information and directions on each. The kitchen is equipped to cook anything from an egg to a 5 course meal, while being in walking distance to one of the best restaurants in town, Davids. I will absolutely stay there again!

A wonderful little house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lovely little home in Cape Elizabeth recently. The house is a delight. It's not big, no separate dining room. But it is very clean, decorated nicely, everything works, and lots of extras. For example, a lovely set of china from Italy, to be used for everyday. Lots of pots and pans, utensils, silverware, glasses, coffee maker, herbs, salt & pepper, washer & dryer - really, everything you need. The beds are very comfortable. Three TVs in the place. Close to the grocery store and a lovely bakery (Scratch) that everyone writes about. No, not walking distance unless you like a long walk, but very close buy. I will most definitely return.

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean,well supplied with small kitchen appliances (yes, even a huge lobster pot! ). There is a bakery nearby with excellent bagels ,the house is also close to grocery stores and restaurants. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to any family of 4 (or even 6) to enjoy as their "vacation home"

Great time in Portland

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the greater Portland area, so much to do close by. The home was in a perfect location, short walk to quaint bakery and ice cream shop, Willard Beach, and a short drive to Portland Head Light House, downtown Portland, several beaches and more. House was set up for comfort and had everything you need for a week or more away from home. Would definitely return, looking forward to the opportunity to explore more of the area in future.

A Charming Home with a great location

  • 5 of 5

Kate welcomed us with a warm note, Blueberry jelly from Maine and locally baked English Muffins that were the best we have ever tasted.

This eat-in kitchen and cozy living room were our go-to areas when we weren't out enjoying the surrounding area. Crescent Beach is a must--beautiful and a great place to scour the shore for small pieces of sea glass.

Check out the Flip Creperie in Willard Square--a new business owned and operated by a husband-wife team. The crepes and Wicked Joe coffee are a culinary treat.

We would stay here again.
