  • Gorgeous house, spectacular location

    "Wonderful location close to Acadia National Park, right on the water. The house is super comfortable and very open and attractive. I especially loved the kitchen, which was clearly stocked by a serious cook, and the deck. Incredible setting and just a great experience overall, would love to go back."

  • The best waterfront vacation rental in Stonington Maine

    "The best waterfront vacation rental home in Stonington, Maine is "The Stronghold." We used this home as our central headquarters for our 35th wedding anniversary, family vacation. The owner has gone to great effort to make this home an exceptional beauty and the most memorable resort experience. Standing amongst neighboring, gray siding homes stands this magnificent, recently renovated masterpiece. Located on a private lane on Stonington's waterfront, you are welcomed with an inviting back porch, complete with conversational chairs, windchimes, and croquet for the manicured front or rear yard gaming. The waterfront has a magnificent quarried stone bulkhead and flowering landscaped yard, with two kayaks waiting for you to explore the harbor a nearby islands. The owner, Sallie Strong, has literally thought of everything. Both a gas grill and charcoal grill are on site waiting for your cooking preference. Typically Maine rentals in this area are austere. However this home has Wi-Fi, multiple TVs with DVDs or cable. The duel kitchens were especially useful for our multi families' food storage, prep and cleanup. The main kitchen even has a trash compactor. There are multiple indoor and outdoor rooms for relaxing, watching the lobster boats in the harbor, and enjoying leisurely or formal meals. We admired the decorating as every niche had a unique curio, painting, photo or nautical artifact to admire. The bright room colors and comfortable beds were specially inviting. We have rented four different homes on Deer Isle in recent years. While this home was the most expensive to rent, it was by far the best value. Given the ideal location, the amenities, and the overall experience, I would highly recommend it."

  • A great place to relax!

    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Chickadee Suite and all the "little" touches Donna and Kevin provide to make it "home". The fully equipped kitchen could have been used for every meal, complete with a full size oven and refrigerator! There was a small gas BBQ on the back deck as well. Everything was super clean and comfortable. And there is a TV in the main sitting room/kitchen, as well as one in the bedroom (not that we were in the suite that much!). The only "be advised" is that it is located directly on Rte. 3, and early morning road noise can be your wake up call. Other than that, everything is just lovely! Conveniently located to Acadia, Bar Harbor and all of MDI."

  • Adorable cabin, beautiful coast, flower meadow and sunsets, 3 kayaks!

    "Our family of 4 (plus Lula the dog) LOVED Driftwood Cottage - we can't wait to come back again. It was cozy, clean, well stocked, and had everything we needed for a perfect week in a gorgeous part of Maine. Not only did we enjoy walks on the quiet lanes and nearby nature trails, and kayaking along the lovely Bagaduce River, but we discovered the wonderful nearby treasures like the Tinder Hearth wood-burning pizza and superb bakery on a pretty farm five minutes away; the fun short trips to nearby towns like historic Castine and Stonington at the tip of Deer Isle; and easy access to Belfast in one direction or Acadia National Park in the other. Rustic rural area yet relatively easily accessible, we also found incredibly nice neighbors and fellow travelers all around the area."
