  • A Wonderful Family Reunion at Beech Hill

    "13 adults, 7 children (ages 4-14) and our Bernese Mountain dogs spent a marvelous week at Beech Hill. The house is welcoming and brimming with character, old New England with enough modern conveniences for everyone. The swings hanging from wonderful ancients trees were a gathering place for the children and the field is ideal for soccer, baseball, and croquet. Children and grown ups made themselves comfortable in the game room in the evening, playing "Spy Fail." The kayaks and bikes were put to use and the beach is so close as is Acadia National Park. The porches are wonderful for the view of Hatch Cove and for meals and visiting. The houses are clean and well-equipped. The Combs are very helpful, responsive and generous in sharing what they enjoy with their guests. If we were to suggest any improvements, it would be to the comfort of the beds, which was not to everyone's liking. There was a malfunction of a bed in Beechwood, which would not keep us from returning by any means!"

  • Lovely week in July

    "A friend and I spent a week here last month. It's a lovely house, very bright and airy, with a nicely appointed kitchen, comfortable beds upstairs and down, and furniture much nicer than what you find in many vacation rentals. Was also very clean. The house is located on a side street just beyond the Maine Maritime Academy and is within walking distance of Castine's Main Street, and Perkins Street (waterfront) is also very close. Nice to have Internet connection in the house. All in all very pleasant and we hope to return."

  • Updated private, cozy, country home with friendly & trustworthy owner

    "This was our first family vacation, with a 4 month old baby and 1 year old german shepherd, and the Honeymoon Cottage was perfect for us & we'd recommend the house to family & friends. The house was as described and pictured - charming, clean, well decorated, with landscaped grounds. The owner, Paul, met us upon our arrival, showed us around the property, and gave us helpful advice about the area (restaurants, stores, etc.). Paul was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay and after. (When we arrived home, we realized we had mistakenly left several hundred dollars cash at the house...we spoke with Paul the next morning and he immediately went to the house, located the cash, honestly told us that it was $50 more than we thought, and mailed us a check.) We couldn't have been more thankful for his honesty and assistance. The house had good wifi, a smart tv, cable, an iron, coffee maker, toaster, washer/dryer, dishwasher, grill, kitchen supplies, towels, bedding, and more - so basically everything you might need. The house is close to the road, but is very private, in a safe area, and a short walk to the water. We visited in late August, and while the temperature got up to the mid 80s during the day, there were fans for every room and the house was sufficiently cool without air conditioning. The master bedroom was spacious, with vaulted ceilings, two closets, and was private. It was large enough for us to have our baby's pack-n-play in the room without sacrificing space. There are two other bedrooms on the 2nd floor, along with a full bathroom, and the fourth bedroom is in the walk-out basement - providing extra privacy. The yard was large & well kept - our dog loved running around in it. We spent our evenings on the screened in porch having dinner and playing cards, or by the fire pit (you do need a permit from the town to make a fire). The fire permit was another example of Paul going above and beyond - when I went to town hall it was closed due to a personal emergency so we called Paul and he contacted the necessary individuals to get a permit issued. Lastly, it's easy to visit Acadia from the house, it's a 45-55 minute drive that we did several days, as well as several other coastal towns."

  • Great country charm for a stay in Maine

    "My wife, her sister and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there August 18 thru the 25th. Enjoyed the country charm of the home. A really neat deck on the back side of the house is great place to enjoy a glass of wine and taking in the view of the property. Walked .7 mile behind the property to a beautiful bay. Easy drives to Castine, Acadia National park, Bar Harbor and other points of interest. A nice country landscape to enjoy. All the amenities one would need for a weeks stay. I will give this home an A+ for cleanliness, a place to kick back and have fun."
