Recent Down East reviews

  • Incredibly Idyllic as Advertised & then some!

    "• Incredibly well appointed – lovely tasteful modern Maine décor with every possible convenience, Lovely maps & artwork on walls, appliances,, etc. Could not be done any nicer. • Flowers when we arrived & stocked wood by the fire pit • 20 steps to the dock! Fun kayaks, great dock • Clean, Clean, Clean!!! • Great kitchen with every possible cooking amenity – down to parchment paper. • Even basic fishing supplies in the storage shed for those who might need them – how considerate! • Lake was very quiet – saw one boat on the water all week • Love the windswept blueberry barrens on the way in – looks a lot like the heather fields of Scotland Only slight drawbacks and minor ones at that: • Pretty slow fishing and what was caught was incredibly small (mix of perch, bass & sunfish), and the house is pretty close to its neighbors though the old camp to the left was empty (to the right is a pretty active, family with watercraft, dogs, kids, etc). But extremely quiet most of the time. • Local Highlights – Main Acadia National Park on Mt. Desert Island was incredibly crowded during our stay in early Sept – instead, go to the equally scenic and totally uncrowded Schoodic Point which is also part of the park, but attached to the mainland (they are about the same driving distance from the cabin). Have a great lunch at the quaint Corea on the Wharf, where you are sitting on a working lobster dock and the owner actually caught our lobster earlier that morning. His Jonah crab claws, from his own traps, are to die for! As I tried to eat my weight in lobster, best was at Ruth & Whimpy’s right near the cabin on RT 1 - a one of a kind seacoast gem with its quirky décor. Get a hard shelled one if you can – harder to crack but much meatier (best steamers were at Young’s in Belfast an hour down the coast). Swallows Nest - local baker around the corner (open Wed 12n-4P only) makes an incredible blueberry pie - dense, tart and not goopy. Shack on Rt 1 at intersection (called YU Takeout) near Irving Gas - for value priced options like lobster & crab rolls (non-ME crab) - and Korean food! Steamers great everywhere, but best we found were at Young's Lobster Pound in Belfast on the way up Farnsworth Museum in Rockland (1:15 south) def. worth trip to see largest collection of Wyeths (all 3 generations) outside of the Brandywine in DE."
