  • Amazing spot for a family getaway!

    "We booked this house for a Fall Break getaway, with three families meeting in Northern Maine. From the first moment we saw the house, after driving a winding dirt road back into the ocean dunes, we were smitten. The decor is lovely and simple, the bunk room was spectacular and created a much-needed getaway for our boys ages 6-14. We could not get enough of coffee on the deck in the morning where we spotted harbor seals, a porpoise, and even a bald eagle flying over the property. We took advantage of the fire pit near the oceanside most evenings. And enjoyed local restaurants as well as a few trips to Acadia. The only downside was there is no wi-fi; this created an issue for a couple of us who needed to do work while staying at the house and the local bar wasn't too friendly about having us sit there to use their wifi... but overall we loved the house and the atmosphere and highly recommend!"

    "Unbelievable! Superlative; a perfect solution to our dream vacation in Maine. Located in an area surrounded by secluded harbor towns with NO traffic lights! One hour by car to travel to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The view from the house of the cove at sunrise, the ocean at dusk...and stars in the sky at night are breathtaking. The house is off the road and surrounded by mature trees at the edge of the typical rocky coast. The interior decorations, layout are as described and you feel you are "down East". The housekeeping is immaculate, clean and fresh . The decor is detailed with appointments, are picture perfect and yet homey...yet like visiting family. The welcome with wine and the friendship bread was a pleasant surprise. Hanging out, relaxing in the Adirondack chairs, sipping wine...and having time to converse or just read a book...lounge in the hammock and nap...all with a breeze and scent of salty air! Thankful to be away from it all. The desktop photo on my computer now is the photo of the ocean and rocky shore from the house! Views for everywhere are keepers. And what is a vacation without special food adventures? At the house, the kitchen featured CuisinArt, cast iron and a gigantic lobster pot and is well stocked, great for steamed lobster dinners in; or for that occasional special romantic evening dining in. We found lobster available fresh off the boats in the harbor at reduced prices only found in Maine. We had our Boxer/Lab dog along and enjoyed local restaurants for breakfast on occasion, lunches on the wharf, and dinners on the patio...pet friendly as well. The location provides opportunities to play tourist at Acadia and Bar Harbor, or just enjoy watching the activity of the lobster boats in the harbors, a visit to U.S. Bell...for a dinner bell or quilt? How about lunch on the wharf at Corea Harbor? The locals are friendly and very helpful. Sally is a superb hostess; we travel often and she is outstanding in her professional yet personal manner in providing responsive, timely support and recommendations. We plan to return...the greatest complement we can offer. Thank you for the perfect, memorable vacation location."

  • Charming farmhouse, isolated location, striking distance to everything

    "My wife, our ten and seven year old children, our dog, and I spent a wonderful and relaxing week in Lamoine. The farmhouse is rustic and charming. The property offers children lots of opportunities to play and explore. The stars are amazing. While rustic, modern amenities are also available: WIFI, satellite TV, and a bluetooth stereo receiver. There are a number of things to do that are minutes away. Lamoine Beach and Raccoon Cove are spots for foraging clams and mussels, kayaking, or watching the sunrise. While my daughter painted the sunrise at Lamoine Beach, I foraged some rose hips and we made rose hip jam, adding some of the crab apples that grow behind the farmhouse for pectin. There's al fresco pizza available at the nearby goat farm, Seal Cove Farm. There are fresh egg sellers and lobster boils along the road on the way into Elseworth. Elseworth has super markets for stocking up and Roster Brother's for gourmet cheese, cold cuts and dry goods. They have excellent coffee. We had lunch at Serendib, a Sri Lankan restaurant, in Elseworth, which was very, very good. We visited Acadia three times and it's about a 30 minute drive to the Mt. Desert Island part of the park. We also visited Scoodic Point which is a longer drive, but well worth a visit. The Down East Maine Coast is a beautiful place, affording many opportunities for good times and good food. We'll definitely be back and would stay at Fox Hollow again. Other things worth checking out: - Acadia Deep Sea Fishing, they send you home with lobster from their traps. It's a rather long trip and not the best if you're prone to sea sickness - J & P's Farm Market in Trenton, good local produce, frozen Herring Brothers steaks. - Morning Glory Bakery in Bar Harbor"
