  • Peaceful and private vacation home near so much on Blue Hill Peninsula

    "Just returned from a 2-week stay at this home on the Blue Hill Peninsula and we had a lovely vacation there! We arrived to a clean home ready for us with a loaf of bread and veggies from the garden ready for picking. Sleeping was easy, beds were comfortable, bathroom was roomy for our family and the house was nicely laid out for moving around, playing board games, spending time together or finding a spot to read in quiet. Wifi was, of course, available and used by all of us but we also played board games and got out every day to go somewhere new. But my favorite part of vacation is how I feel when I stay somewhere and on that count this home was perfect: there was a garden with fresh veggies to pick, a lovely path to the Bagaduce River where we were able to swim, and if you had kayaks to launch you could. The meadows were exactly what our dog needed and she was as happy as could be. Louise was attentive and very nice, very friendly, and responded to my questions (even when I repeated them) very quickly. The house was nicely laid out with windows situated so that you could take advantage of the evening breezes and everything was very comfortable. The stars at night were a surprise - there is very little ambient light and the sky becomes a wonder to look at. It could not have been more perfect for us and I am grateful to have rented from someone so easy to deal with. Art work all over the house made for a nice, personal touch and we even used most of the musical instruments! Games, farmer's markets, gorgeous hikes and places to kayak, swim, dine and take boat excursions are everywhere both on the peninsula and on nearby Deer Isle (which we love). Acadia National Park was only an hour away and we were able to get there several times for biking, hiking, swimming and some dinner after. Wine, good food, easy shopping, galleries and the nicest book store all within 10 to 30 minutes (good grocery store was the closest at about 10 minutes, Blue Hill galleries and lovely small town only a little further, Deer Isle about 20 to 35 minutes depending on where you want to go on the Islands). PLENTY to do in the area, and we did as much as we could."

  • Wonderful Week at Edgewater

    "My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Edgewater for a week in late August. What a great experience. The home is lovely-- clean, tastefully furnished, bright, comfortable, welcoming, and well equipped from kitchen to bookshelf. The thoughtful owners were kind, extremely helpful, and clearly enjoy ensuring their guests enjoy their stay. No detail of necessity, comfort and convenience is left unaddressed, so we felt welcome and expected from the minute we arrived. Edgewater's property is private and spacious, just a couple of minutes from the center of town, yet it felt comfortably secluded. The home's situation on the water's edge is a sight to behold, and my wife and I enjoyed waking each day to the dramatic sunrises over the bay (and not even needing to get out of bed to do so). Loved the sound of the fishing boats headed out just before dawn, and it was great to watch the sailboats come and go all day. The 100 or so yards of private rocky waterfront (and fun tidal beach) were a joy for us and the kids to explore, with cool stones, mussels, little crabs, and stunning views galore. Fun to watch a family of ducks fishing out in the cove every afternoon. The generous yard was more than spacious enough for frisbee, croquet, and general running around, and the home's deck spaces offer fantastic views and a great place to dine or while away an afternoon or three. Despite Edgewater's close proximity to all that Blue Hill and the surrounding area have to offer, we never felt anxious to leave the house, and even skipped a few planned dinners out to just relax and cook at home. We hope to be back next summer. Great place."

  • The perfect little house in the woods

    "We stayed here the last week in August/early Sept. and could not have been more pleased. The house is so well designed that you feel comfortable in it right away. It's clean, airy, beautifully decorated and well-equipped. The photography was such a pleasant change from photos of lobsters, blueberries, moose etc., that it was not only refreshing but captivating as well. And the books on their shelves were so interesting that it kept us from reading the ones we brought with us. Very easy to cook in the kitchen which included every utensil, pot etc. you could possibly need and a bonus to have a washer/ dryer. We also liked that we could walk into town - though the steep driveway is a challenge on the way back up. But we got used to it by the 3rd day. The owners were extremely helpful in answering our numerous questions and left a very welcoming basket of goodies to get us started. We've stayed in 4 different houses in Blue Hill over the years. This one is unusual - unusually good!"

  • Just what we needed!

    "Thank you Melony and Dick for allowing us to stay in your comfortably, quaint cottage! Although our stay was brief, it was exactly what we needed. The cottage was the perfect fit for the 2 of us and the stocked kitchen was very helpful. We do plan to return in the summer to experience the summer life in ME!"
