  • peace , quiet, and relaxation

    "What a wonderful place. The house is gorgeous, much better than the pictures show, and very cozy. The ocean views from the deck are to die for. This is what post cards are made from. Having morning coffee watching the lobster boats and listening to all the birds and squirrels is heavenly. The rocky coast is a great hike, and holds all sorts of treasures to find. Easy day trip to Acadia and Canada, plus wonderful people in town as well. Did I mention quiet? It is very secluded but easy to find. We have been here a week, and havent heard anything other than ocean and wildlife yet. Lots to see, lots to do. And if you're lucky you can see Eagles, deer, chipmunks, badger, and a whole host of other creatures. We will definitely be back as long as the gracious hosts keep renting it out. They are quick to respond, and very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a perfect vacation."

  • The Best Maine Experience Ever!

    "Dear Carroll and Maureen -- it doesn't seem possible that exactly one week ago today we driving away from Somerled for the last time. I want you know that my family had a spectacluar time! Four generations of my family (Mom and Dad, my three sisters, 4 nieces and assorted husbands and great-nieces) will never forget our visit to Maine and your wonderful home. It was spacious and beautiful. I must confess that I was a bit nervous driving up that long gravel driveway, but once you get there -- oh my -- you never want to leave! We've rented many homes in Maine, other States and in Europe and I can honestly say that this was the best. Beautifully maintained, fully stocked beyond my wildest imagination and a million dollar setting. That view is incredible! I looked forward to getting up every morning and sitting out on the deck with a cup of coffee to watch the seals swim by and the lobsterr men pulling up their traps. We spent a day in Acadia, took a great whale watching cruise out of Lubec, drove over the Campobello and even found some time for relaxing. We dug for clams and made a huge pot of clam chowder. Picked wild blueberries. Made our own lobster rolls. It was the quintessential Maine experience. If you'll allow us, I feel certain that Jeff and I will be back. Perhaps next time with friends. Thank you again for making your home available to us. Please know that if anyone ever asks you for a reference, we'd be happy to extol the many virtues of Somerled. Sincerely -- Don and Jeff"

  • You cannot beat this spot! Four adults, four kids, two dogs and we all had the time of our lives.

    "We had so much fun in the yard and on the water. Kayaking at high tide to the nearby islands or up the Englishman River, and exploring the rocks and flats at low tide. The huge lawn was perfect for frisbee and football or playing fetch with the pups. And what a view beyond! Comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen (we made great use of that wine fridge) made for cozy nights on the coast. Privacy! We spent days on the beach and would see next to no one. This privacy was respected by Captain Mike, while he was still available whenever we needed him. And he is full of great local suggestions! A big hit of his was steering us towards Mother Shuckers for truly the freshest lobster we have ever had. They were in the waters just outside our door mere hours before they were on our dinner plates. A great grill on the deck made it easy for us to spend as much time outside as we could. Think grilled pizzas and star gazing. So many places to explore for day trips makes this a great home base. Roque Bluffs State park, 2 miles away, has great walking trails, a sandy beach and a freshwater lake. (And wild blueberries!!) We hit Bar Harbor and Acadia one day, about an hour and a half away, and both East and West Quoddy lighthouses. West Quoddy is less than an hour from the house. All in all, none of us would hesitate to return. Thank you for a great family vacation."

  • Most relaxing vacation!

    "This place was incredible! The view has to be seen to be believed. Loved the smell of the ocean air, too. Plenty of room, beautiful, quaint cottage with plenty to read. The owners didn't forget a thing. Everything we needed. The private beach is awesome. Loved the kayaks. My 13 yr old loved climbing the rock formations and so did my dog. Great place to paint the scenery. Fully equipped kitchen, grill really came in handy. Plenty of hot water in the shower. Even a little hummingbird feeder where a fat little hummingbird came to visit. Lots of wildlife to view, too. I loved sitting on the deck for my morning coffee. Lots of things to do in the area for little day trips. The travel guides in the cabin were handy for info regarding that. I think it was the best week of my dog's life. Very easy to book, painless. I'm sure I will go again."
