Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Maine Stay was wonderful. I think the seaside porch was occupied by at least one person during every daylight hour, drinking in the view and the sounds. We had a lovely paddle from the beach around a nearby island, sharing the experience with a loon and some porpoises. The garden was a delight, and the lawn is perfect for bocce. We loved the walk through the woods to the beach on the far side.

We ate every meal at the table on the side porch, enjoying the view and the Maine air. The kitchen is incredibly well-furnished with everything a cook could need. The microwave died while we were there, and the property manager provided amazing service, coming over with a new microwave the next day! We hope to come again!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Maine Stay was magical. Each day began with a cup of the tea sitting on the front stoop listening to the birds and gazing out over the bay. Even the foggy mornings were great as I watched the fog lift. Spring is a bit chillier than summer might be, but the lilacs, lupine, and rhodadendron were blooming and made it so beautiful. One chilly evening we had a lovely fire in the fireplace as we played cards. Very relaxing. There is so much to see and do in the area that I feel like we barely scratched the surface. We were fortunate to be here for the opening of Pugnuts Ice Cream in Surry Village. Odd name (it turns out the owners love their pugs and the pugs love ice cream) but I predict it will be a winner. The Blood Orange sorbet was to die for and I had to bring a pint of Chocolate gelato home with me. One of our favorite days was walking through the woods to get to the west shore and watching the lobster boats pull their traps. It was so peaceful. We hope to return at a different time of year to enjoy all the area has to offer.

Well worth the long journey

  • 5 of 5

We all very much enjoyed our time at Maine Stay. There is something truly serene and peaceful about being there. The house was very comfortable and roomy. There is a quite a bit to explore both in the immediate area and around Blue Hill as well. We especially appreciated the hiking trails and proximity to the water. I was truly impressed with how welcome we were all made to feel. We all hope to return one day.

Repeat Stay

  • 5 of 5

We love it so much that had to go back for more... the serene atmosphere is wonderful. The home is beautiful and makes you feel right at home. We love to get up and sit on the porch when we wake up and enjoy a cup of tea in the peaceful views of the water...

We will be back for sure next year!

Sweeping views and truly a warm and wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Maine Stay home was wonderful. The pictures don't really even do it justice - both the feel of a grand old home, as well as the view. We visited with several of our dogs and our 16 year old son. My son could not have loved it more - but, I think the pups loved it just as much. It's a very safe home for all - with the wonderful front lawn and view to the water. The home is extremely well stocked, and, just a great place to hang out and enjoy the area. We got kayaking and hiking in, as well as long walks, reading, and, exploring. We particularly loved Barncastle in Blue Hill, and, Flexit Cafe in Ellsworth. And....of course Perry's Lobster Shack. It's a perfect place to curl up and watch Hitchcock movies at night (which we did) and just relax. We hope to return again very soon!!!
