  • Great views, great location.

    "Wendy and Ken are gracious hosts. We were very comfortable in the carriage house. The weather was too cold to sit outside on the deck but the huge windows allowed us to stay warm while enjoying the vista in front of the house. We went hiking in Acadia National Park for a day and explored Blue Hill another day. Great restaurants close by. Thank you Wendy and Ken."

  • Words Fail . . . .

    "And likewise superlatives. Neither my wife nor myself can recall another week (all too brief) with greater pleasure than the one just spent at the Jean-Paul House in Blue Hill. It was a rather special anniversary occasion that brought eleven family members together, ages ranging from 9 to 79. This large, handsomely furnished and decorated house afforded us plenty of room indoors and in the ample, beautifully planted garden borders and terrace leading down to a semi-private cove. We enjoy cooking together. A big, well-designed and fully-equipped kitchen made it easy. Blueberry pies (3 of them, a nephew's specialty), steamed lobsters (thanks, Jean-Paul, for setting things up), grilled meats (great Weber grill), quantities of pasta and salads (local farmers' markets came through) and one unforgotten unforgettable evening, a long lovely multi-course anniversary feast à la Française with candles and flowers and swell wines and wonderful food and song and super conviviality for all, catered for us by indefatigable J-P--a former restaurateur--and Melinda and their very talented chef friend, Joyelle. Comfort and consideration were everywhere. Linens of the highest quality, excellent and amusing tableware, an inviting terrace for al fresco meals and bay views, Adirondack chairs for lounging and tide-gazing and bird--watching, plus plenty of spaces for just being quiet among energetic family cheerfulness. Not to mention the attractions of the area. Some of us did a concert at Kneisel Hall, some kayaked on the bay and around Neskeag Point, some swam at a nearby lake, some visited the Wooden Boat School in Brooklin, we all lobster-lunched at Stonington while a regatta of full-bellied spinnakers sailed by, some shopped for paintings and wine and chocolate and coffee and ice cream. But nothing can truly describe the delights of our week. Blue Hill's Main Street is a busy, active thoroughfare. Once you pass the gate into the Jean-Paul House's expansive green floriferous garden/terrace, you enter a warm welcoming world in itself. I'll be pretentious, apologies, and cite a French poet's words (no translation needed) for it: "calme, luxe, et volupté." See for yourself."

  • Peacefulness abounds in this beautiful home!

    "My three children and I stayed at this property for a week in August. We had such a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and so well equipped. Everything you could possibly need is there. The kitchen is fitted for actual cooking, linens and towels are provided. The house is also spotlessly clean which I appreciate above everything else. My two boys are teenagers and used the downstairs bedrooms with the bathroom down there. My daughter and I used the upstairs rooms. Everyone loved having their own space while still being together. The house is well stocked with DVD's, games, and books. Two of my kids spent hours in the evenings playing chess and I loved seeing them so focused on something non electronic. The outside shower is an absolute dream, there is nothing like showering outside on a beautiful summer morning. The house location is very private and incredibly quiet and peaceful. We found the location of the property to be excellent for exploring many areas of Maine. We went all over the Blue Hill Peninsula and we drove up to Mount Desert Island quite a few times. It is an easy drive away of just about one hour. Acadia National Park is absolutely breathtaking. The owners clearly take a great deal of pride in their property. Sally is extremely pleasant and helpful. She is very responsive and sent us a detailed email with ideas of places to go and restaurants to eat at. I have rented many places and she was by far the most friendly and helpful owner I have ever dealt with. I would not hesitate to return here and often think longingly of our peaceful week in Maine!"
