Perfect quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fabulous time staying at this lovely Harpswell home. The house is beautifully built, decorated and maintained. The owners keep it very clean, stocked and organized. There isn't a bustling town nearby (Freeport and Brunswick are 30-40 minutes away) which was perfect for us because it helped us keep things low-key and relaxing. We played lawn games, board games, read and went on hikes. One evening we went out to dinner at a nearby restaurant (the Dolphin marina and restaurant) but otherwise we visited farm stands, a little market and a wine shop so we could cook at home. We hope to return to this beautiful spot!

Serene Harpswell getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. It felt like the quiet, private getaway we were looking for in an autumn trip up to Maine. It's not too far to drive into Freeport or even Portland. The home itself feels spacious and had the nice features to make it great (good shower fixture, high quality appliances, etc). Whether you want to sit on a porch and watch the sunset or run all about the region, this one is a good choice.

Let me start by letting you know, I rent at least three homes per year, for 12 years...this is the nicest home I have ever rented. Dan has thought of everything you could possibly need for your vacation!

The location is quiet, private and remote. If you are looking for nightlife, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for an amazing, clean, over the top equipped house, this is the place for you. Plenty of room (although it was just two of us and our 3 year old German shepherd) for a large family or group of friends. Cook to your hearts content in the beautiful, very high end kitchen (you will want for nothing).

Lovely linens is what I consider very important. Most rental properties either make you bring your own, or offer cheap, scratchy sheets and terrible towels. This home has great sheets, clean linens, and an abundance of high end towels. I know to some, this will seem like a silly part of the review...but for those of us that care, it makes a big difference!!!

In a nutshell, RENT THIS HOUSE! You will be thrilled with Dan and the house. Be sure to take a kayak tour from H2O Outfitters on Bailey (might be Orr's...but Will was great!!!) Island, and have dinner at the Dolphin a few times while you are there!

Thanks Dan!

Best home we have rented, by far!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful - timeless coastal architecture, tastefully decorated, and well equipped with everything we needed and a lot more. We had plenty of space for 3 couples and enjoyed watching sunsets over Ash Cove from the spacious porch. The setting is perfect as well - on a quiet tidal cove but only a 15 minute drive to Brunswick.

Estes Lobster House is a great seasonal restaurant a short walk or drive down the street from our home (0.5 miles). One of the best locations on the water for food is the Dolphin Marina Restaurant which is on the other side of the harbor (you can see it from the house!) about a 10 minute drive. It has a great selection of seafood, american food, great views and an outdoor deck to enjoy while you wait for your table.

On the other side of Harpswell is beautiful Bailey Island which has boating rental and water activities as well as restaurants and Inns to visit while you are in the area.

Our home is about a 20 minute drive to downtown Brunswick and 25 minute drive to Freeport. Brunswick has numerous restaurants, a movie theater, large grocery store, cafes and shops. Freeport is known for it's outlet shopping and the flagship LL Bean store. There are also some great day hikes and bike trails in the Freeport area.
