  • It couldn't have been better.

    "My wife and I were looking for a last minute place to get away, far away, after a hectic spring and early summer work schedule that left us in need of a complete change of scene and change of pace, with no time even to think about planning a vacation in advance. As a VRBO owner, myself, I went to that website first. I don’t know what I even typed in to the search bar, but Marc Poirier’s “Artist Retreat” was the first possibility to pop up on the screen. I read the description: “post and beam open concept home,” “dead-end street in a quiet fishing village,” “five minute walk to…a lobster pound that will cook and serve you up some lobster and clams right on their deck.” “Beam me up, Scotty,” my heart sang as I checked the calendar and discovered that it was available for the dates I needed. The “Artists Retreat” did not disappoint. It was, indeed, a great and gracious home base for us to regroup and refocus, and enjoy the central Maine coast, from Wiscasset to Bar Harbor, from its many art galleries, museums and antique shops, to its breathtaking coves and coastline. Though the house came with a full kitchen, we found ourselves on the road most evenings at dinner time feasting harbor side in one town after the other on some of the best seafood I have had in my life. But, most special for me, was sitting at the kitchen table at 7 a.m. every morning, savoring my first cup of coffee, looking out the window at the cove beyond shrouded in mist, watching as the sun slowly rose burning through the haze to reveal the lobster boats riding at anchor and the islands beyond. It couldn’t have been any better."

  • Great Location and House

    "We rented this house for a week long stay with our family of 4 and my SIL and her husband. The 6 of us were very comfortable in the house. It has plenty of room for privacy but a living area comfortable enough to accommodate all 6 of us. The house was clean and had everything we needed for the stay. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking (pots, pans, knives, etc). I greatly appreciated that the house is nicely decorated but isn't cluttered so there is plenty of room for your stuff without it getting lost in a sea of knickknacks. The town is a comfortable and easy walk and the grocery store is a short drive away. We enjoyed being a little out of town on the lake where it was quiet and peaceful. The lake is wonderful for swimming and we even rented kayaks for a few days on the lake. The owners are friendly and checked in to be sure we had everything we needed but respectfully gave us our space as well. We were very happy with out stay. And we had our security check returned in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this rental and we would be happy to stay here again if we didn't live on the West Coast."

  • Hidden Gem in Maine

    "I'm hesitant to review this lovely cottage on Seal Cove not because the stay was average, but because I'm selfish and don't want others to discover this hidden gem!!! My young family has vacationed in the Pemaquid area for the last 7 years, but staying cove side is quite the experience. This was are second year and you'll hear no complaints! Our 6 and 3 year olds love walking right down to the water to explore and help launch kayaks and paddle around the cove looking for wildlife and "treasures." It is extremely peaceful (with the exception of our children squealing/screaming in excitement). This year start we saw hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs, a variety of birds and seals. We spotted seals everyday. One day we saw 22 seals basking on the rocks at one time! They even joined us kayaking. Groceries, shops, and lobster coops are a short drive away. The kitchen has everything you need to make your meals and having linens provided is a bonus. Gordon and Sheila have thought of everything you may need to make you stay fun and relaxing. We can't wait to come back next year!!"

  • Fabulous Cottage - Fabulous Location!!

    "We recently returned from introducing our Daughter and her family to Maine and stayed at Stepping Stones. This cottage has large bedrooms for the size of the cottage and absolutely lovely appointments. All you need is there. It is truly a turn key property, very well kept and Location .. Location .. Location!! We hated to leave! There is no air conditioning, however it is not needed with the ocean breeze. We brought fans and never used them. Boothbay Harbor Region has lots to offer, restaurants, shops, galleries, Whale Watching, Boat trips on the harbor, Lighthouse tours and much more. The owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. I would rent here again in a heartbeat!!"
