  • Peaceful and Perfect

    "My husband and I wanted a quiet and private place to call home while we explore Acadia National Park. Maureen and Steve were prompt in responding to our initial requests and payment was simple. Driving up to the property is impressive. It's so tranquil and beautiful. The Garaj is detached from the main house, so you have as much privacy as you need. However, they are available for anything you need during your stay. We hiked hard every day and looked forward to calling the Garaj Mahal home to rest and recover each evening. They have kayaks and a canoe for use, and a wonderful launching point just steps from the Garaj. You could easily spend days on Salt Pond exploring the coastline, seals, and other wildlife. Maureen and Steve have provided everything in the sweet little apartment that you could possibly need. They couldn't be lovelier. We could have easily stayed for weeks on end, but sadly, our vacation came to an end! Thank you Maureen and Steve! We miss the place already!"

  • A Visit With Grand Aunt Agatha (if only I had one)

    "A lovely home. Clean as a whistle. (Aggie has a great housekeeper). A to die for kitchen (Didn't taste her recipes), but everything was there if I felt like cooking. Fluffy clean towels and super linens on the bed (Of course my grand daughter chose the one with the canopy). Period furnishings except for the great room with a comfy couch and chairs. One little problem, but Auntie's stand-in took care of it promptly with a text. The Blue Hill area is scenic, close to Acadia, with hidden beaches and serene scenes with very few tourists to trip over. A short walk to a good restaurant to sit under the trees. A travelled street, but a huge backyard with fireflies."

  • Wonderful vacation cottage

    "Karen's cottage is exactly as advertised. We brought our two dogs and it was a great property for them as well as a wonderful neighborhood to walk them in. The cottage is well furnished and lacks for nothing. As other reviewers have mentioned she has provided just about anything you could think of needing. Truly the only thing I would add or bring if we return would be Ziploc bags. The living room is well furnished and all of the furniture is comfortable. The queen size bed is great for sleeping and there are plenty of linens as well. The cottage stayed cool and there were fans if needed. We didn't get to use the deck very much, but it is functional with plenty of seating. The property is right down the road from Acadia and Bar Harbor. We went back and forth several times each day and it was very convenient from the cottage. We did not find the traffic overly challenging and were typically able to get parking in town. Acadia is breathtaking and Bar Harbor enchanting. The water pump noise was unfamiliar and it startled us at first until we figured out what it was. The shower water pulses which took some getting used to. This was not a problem, just different. There is a large screen TV with Direct TV which was very nice and wi fi that worked great. Karen is very helpful and obviously takes pride in her property. Her dog is adorable and our dogs were happy to have him visit. We didn't have any problems during our stay. There was a flood light out and she bought a new one that my husband put in for her. The yard was mowed and free from dog waste and she provides tools for cleaning up messes if needed. We had hoped we could get down to the ocean near the property when the tide was out, but it was not very easy due to the rockiness of the shoreline. This was a little disappointing, but we just went down the road a short ways when the tide would go out and enjoyed it from there. Karen recommended the Chart Room to eat at and it was excellent. We would definitely go back. One thing to think about possibly adding that we would enjoy would be a fire pit This is a great cottage rental and we would definitely stay here again if we return to the area, which we hope to do. Thank you Karen"

  • Magical place!

    "This was our third stay at Orchard House, but we've been coming to the neighborhood for 15 years. My kids are college students now, and they still dream about coming to Brooksville each summer. This is a gloriously beautiful region, with plenty of low-key activities, including hiking, kayaking, blueberry picking, swimming, beachcombing, bird watching and just taking in a spectacular view around each corner. There are also hundreds of artists and writers who live and work here, wonderful restaurants and small food businesses, and abundant peace and quiet. Orchard House is comfortable sunny and spacious, with a beautifully equipped kitchen. Sally and Sean are wonderful hosts. We love it here and we will certainly be back!"
