  • Nice Maine vacation rental

    "The owners provided great service. The home was supplied with coffee, soaps and paper products. Very nice convenience. We stayed with our children and grandchildren and the home was a great layout."

  • Immaculate, spacious cottage in quiet, peaceful setting

    "This was our first trip to Maine and we loved it! Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed staying at Folkestone Cottage. The house was spacious, comfortable, clean, and tidy. My husband and I enjoyed having the master bedroom/bath on the first floor, and the kids were happy to have their own bedrooms and shared bath upstairs. We were very pleased to see that the cottage was well-stocked with everything you could possibly need, especially since we had recently stayed in an Airbnb house that was lacking enough towels, plates, glasses, and utensils. Having a full-size washer/dryer was also very helpful. The cottage living room was cozy and we spent most evenings playing board games that the owners had made available. There were a few hot days during our stay, and while the house does not have AC, there was a large fan in each bedroom and easy-to-open windows throughout the house to keep it comfortable with cross breezes. The property is surrounded by woods and feels secluded even though it's in a neighborhood. We were able to keep the windows open when we were home and enjoyed the fresh air and views of the lush, green yard. The yard is well-kept and has large grassy areas for the kids to run around. There's a small deck off the kitchen with a table and chairs, and we enjoyed some of our meals outside. We drove into Acadia and/or Bar Harbor everyday (about a 10-15 minute drive) and it was nice coming home to peaceful, quiet Folkestone Cottage every night to relax. Jeff and Lynn were friendly and easy to work with and they take excellent care of the cottage. We have rented many vacation homes over the years and Folkestone Cottage stands out as exceptional!"

  • A slice of paradise on beautiful Goose Cove!

    "We selected BassTerre for our spring vacation and couldn't be happier with our decision. We've rented vacation homes on the Oregon coast, the Blue Ridge mountains and the Florida panhandle and BassTerre was by far the nicest and most comfortable home yet exceeding our expectations. The cottage was immaculate and attractively furnished with so many thoughtful details not normally found in a vacation "rental". We felt at home immediately and everything you need to relax is provided from the large selection of books and travel guides to the wonderful Adirondack chairs outside at the oceans edge. The kitchen has everything you'll need to cook full meals or steam lobsters/clams right down to the spices. We hiked several great trails including Penobscot Mountain to Sargent Pond, the Beehive, Champlain Mountain and South Bubble. Jordan Pond house's popovers are not to be missed and were the perfect end to one of our hikes. We walked the carriage trails, went tidepooling at Ship's Harbor Nature Trail and shopped in Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. A favorite outing took us to Northeast Harbor which we visited after seeing the Asticou Azalea Gardens. And I can't emphasize enough how gorgeous the views are here. Stunning sunsets were enjoyed right from our deck and huge front yard, while the backdrop of Acadia's landscape framed the scene. Just breathtaking! The starry skies at night took our breath away and walks along the shore during low tide offered us lots to explore in the tidal pools. Kayaking right from beach was incredible! We saw a harbor seal as we paddled and even met a cove lobsterman hauling in his traps. The awe-inspiring natural beauty of Blue Hill Bay and Acadia National Park was at our fingertips both weeks, and it was truly tough to leave. Just a peaceful slice of heaven...that's the best way I can describe our experience here and would highly recommend!"
