  • Colorful, spacious home away from home.

    "Two friends and I decided to rent a home for our Maine vacation and we couldn't have made a better choice than Meadowsedge. The pictures don't really do the house justice. The kitchen is very large and one of my friends who loved to cook was in her glory in the kitchen. All the appliances were high end. We used the dining room every morning for breakfast and evenings for dinner. We would open the sliding doors to get a breeze (it was still a bit warm when we were there and any breeze was welcome). We not only had deer in the yard but a large flock (20-25) of wild turkeys! We made excellent use of the screened-in porch with the fireplace. We had a fire 6 of the 7 nights we were there. It was very relaxing to sit there at night and talk about our adventures that day and plan for the next day or to simply listen to the fire crackling. There were a few negatives - one was that you sink into all of the furniture when you sit down. While some enjoy that, we didn't. It was a bit tough on the knees to get out of a chair or the couch (even the couch on the porch was like this). The third bedroom was downstairs and that area was very damp and musty smelling. A dehumidifier was running the entire time we were there, but unfortunately didn't make the area more livable. We had no interest in watching TV during our stay so it didn't effect us that way, but I was forced to bunk with one of my friends instead of each of us having our own bedrooms. Maine did have some unusually warm weather this summer which probably contributed some to this issue. But overall, we couldn't have been happier with this home. A short ride to Acadia, not too far from the markets for shopping. And owners that were responsive and easy to work with. I'd definitely rent here again if I have the chance to go back to Mount Desert. Thank you Katy and Daniel."

  • Exactly What We Needed

    "This home was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. It was quiet and clean. The views from outside were so beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the cottage had everything we expected. The shower got wonderfully hot, which felt so good after a long day of hiking. The seafood restaurant down the street was a great and delicious experience. The wifi was fast. Joan always got back to me through the website and making payment was no problem. There are a few nice hiking paths very closeby and nothing in Acadia was too far away. We would absolutely stay again."

  • Perfectly wonderful!!

    "We absolutely loved the Dry Cove Cottage that we stayed in last week. It was exactly like the pictures, and included everything we needed for our week-long stay at Deer Isle. We enjoyed the area immensely, and can't wait to return! The cottage was cozy, private, and just what we wanted in a rental. Our dog, Ella, absolutely loved it! Can't wait to go back. Thank you!!"

  • Relaxing Getaway

    "My husband and I were looking for a relaxing private getaway this year and Heron Watch was perfect! The property was just amazing and we found it was not really necessary to leave once we got there. We enjoyed the private cove for swimming and kayaking. The yard was expansive and there was plenty of room to have yard games set up or just relax in the awesome Adirondack chairs that are provided. We spent our time exploring around the entire peninsula with our kayaks. Our daughter joined us later into our trip and it was really nice that the house came with two kayaks as well so our daughter was able to explore with us. At night the stars were just amazing however, the lightening bugs put on a pretty impressive show as well. The house is well cared for and very comfortable for a family of 4 or more. The views from every room in the front of the house are just amazing and change with the sun and tide throughout the day. We opened all of the windows and enjoyed the fresh air that flows throughout the house. Deer Isle is a great place to really get away and not be involved with traffic and tourist traps. We would recommend this property to families young and old. There is handicap access as well. By the way, there is a resident heron at Heron Watch. We saw her every day in the grassy area of the cove. We also had a beautiful little song bird that sat on the boat tie near the Adirondacks daily and sang us some lovely tunes as well as a deer that was seen on the property in the early evenings. Magical experience in a hidden gem on Deer Isle."
