  • The location was amazing. All we hoped for!

    "Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. The cottage was very cute & cozy. Explored the other neighboring communities and thought the Keag store and Rockland were great. Hope to return soon."

  • Great location

    "We stayed in the two bedroom for a week in September. The apartment is beautifully maintained, comfortable, and in a perfect location. You can walk to shopping and restaurants. Karen was so helpful and was a wonderful hostess. One night, we mentioned being warm and she brought us a box fan, along with delivering a new corkscrew for our bottle of wine! There is a lot to do in the area and many places to explore. The botanical gardens should not be missed. You cannot go wrong with renting this perfect spot."

  • Tranquility with a View that never gets old

    "My wife and two older dogs spent a week here. While we have spent time on the south coast of Maine, this was our first trip to Mid-coast Maine. It was a wonderful introduction. The first impression after the hustle and bustle of the southern beaches is that this is sure isolated. You are about 20 minutes from Bath and all its restaurants and stores.. Perhaps because we live in the country ourselves, those reservations quickly melted and it soon felt like home. I love to cook, so I prepared all our breakfasts and dinners in the well appointed kitchen and ate them in the comfortable dining room. Large windows in the front and side of the house take full advantage of the spectacular views of the river and bay, all the way out to the ocean. A nice screened in porch complements the deck. As it was past bug season, we preferred sitting on the deck. In fact, my favorite day was one the only time we drove was to the dump, and the rest of the time we languidly sat on the deck or house and enjoyed the serenity of lobster and pleasure boats coming and going, the seagulls overhead, the diving ducks, and just watching the tide come and go framed by the blue sky and clouds. There are two masters with queen beds that each have great views of the water, and two other bedrooms if you need them. Missed no TV during playoff baseball season, but you can't have everything. We definitely enjoyed lots of time to read. The lobster pound up the road was only open weekends, but we did take advantage of that by sharing a big boy on our first and last nights. What really impressed me too was that in this seemingly remote spot, you can still get to many of the mid coast attractions in an hour or less, and Camden in less than an hour and a half. The internet is very fast and reliable too. All the amenities are here. No nickel and dining you on salt or water or anything else. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners the last day when they came up and stayed at their house next door. Betsy has been part of the Five Islands community all her life. We'll be back for sure."

  • 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."
