  • Wonderfully kept property that excexceeded our expectations!

    "Skip and Judy made our stay in Maine effortless. They greeted us with brownies and left the light on because we arrived late at night. They had our beds made up and toiletries ready for us. The wood work in the apartment is beautiful and smells great. Everything was maintained nicely. The instruction book on things to do town and how to cook a lobster were very helpful! Plus Judy helped us get our lobsters. Skip took us on a fun boat ride and provided a nice tour and background of the lake. We absolutely loved our stay here and would recommend it to anyone who asked us. We would love to come back one day!"

  • Nothing Else Like It

    "I take retreat groups to New England every fall, and we just returned from a week at Whitehead. It was amazing! I can't say enough about the beauty of the island. It was perfect for time along walking through the woods or along the shore; the Whistlehouse was made available for when we wanted to gather together at times for discussion. In fact, when the weather didn't allow us to eat our steamed lobster -- done on the rocks out back -- outside, Gigi transformed the Whistlehouse into a perfect picnic setting. Gigi is the manager and cook -- and she is outstanding as both. Her meals were beautiful and delicious -- and Gigi went out of her way to meet the dietary needs of several of my ladies with allergies, etc. She didn't just make sure they had something they could eat; she went out of her way to fix special desserts, entrees, salads -- whatever was needed. We could not have asked for better or more beautiful food -- and plenty of it! Matt was a wonderful captain and guide. We loved his storytelling ability, and his knowledge of the history of the island made it even more special. He took the ladies clam digging, on a sunset cruise, and worked with us to get our two boat loads where they needed to be in a timely way. He was super to accommodate all of our needs -- at the same time making sure we were safe when traveling in the boat. He was great. Gigi and Matt's love for the island comes through. The seven rooms and seven bath rooms was great for our group -- and it was greatly appreciated. The only drawback for a group our size was there wasn't a really good-sized meeting room in the house -- but I appreciated that in the sense that the Lighthouse had been kept like the house would have originally been - with smaller rooms. We made do -- and Gigi was great about letting us move chairs, etc. around to make it all work. I am already trying to think of a class I could bring to the island, for I so want to return. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed in the Lighthouse, the facilities, or the caretakers. Top notch in all ways!"

  • Outstanding!

    "This is a great house to vacation with a large family. I had most of my extended family with me (9 adults and three children). Everyone had plenty of room and really enjoyed a great time at this beautiful house. The pictures just do not do justice to the house. The rooms are spacious and very well decorated. The house is comfortable and provided a great location for many hours of family fun. What a great way to vacation."
