  • 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."

  • Excellent ten-day stay in coastal Maine

    "My wife and I and another couple spent a wonderful week in the Lodge...wife and I had been in the area two years before and served as guides...Lodge is perfect and huge and very clean. Pat, the cleaning lady kindly provided us with a vase of flowers from her garden and a wonderful home-baked blueberry loaf cake...traveled to nearby Maine Prison store, featuring inmate woodwork at very reasonable prices...also, Morse's Sauerkraut retail store for their weekend brunch, featuring one of the best hash we've ever had. Dined in Damarascotta at Crissy's for terrific breakfasts and King Eider for dinner and lunch and always had oysters on half-shell...oysters in this region of the country are the best...clean, tender, opened so that liquor remains in shell and always on ice. Also had our share of lobsters...Chap, the owner was wonderful and agreed that my wife and I could stay an additional three days to avoid crowds during the Papal visit in Philadelphia for an additional fee. All told, it was a great trip to Maine and wife and I are already thinking about returning to the Lodge in two years. As noted in previous review, pictures don't do this property justice. It's terrific!"

  • Arden House--superb rental

    "We have booked many vacation rentals through VRBO/HomeAway over the years and Arden House is in our top three! The property is well maintained with beautiful gardens, seating areas, and dock. I enjoyed kayaking every morning--kayaks, paddles, and life jackets provided. My husband loved grilling over the fire pits and walking the trails while I shopped in Boothbay Harbor. The carriage house is comfortable and is beautifully decorated. I admired the art, pottery, and furnishings that make this rental a home. Abigail expertly handles the booking process and Jim and Barbara are wonderful for local recommendations. Boothbay Harbor has a lot to offer--many quaint shops, good food, and fantastic views. A few of our favorites are Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Cabbage Island Clambake, Oliver's at Cosy Harbor for drinks in a relaxing setting, Dunton's Dog House and Katie's Hideaway for fresh seafood at roadside stands, and Abacus for unique gifts. Arden House is definitely a five-star!!"

  • Beautiful Retreat

    "The Plosser family had several "firsts" this trip; canoeing, kayaking for some, playing pool & ping pong for some (crazy I know but some people don't get out much!:). We visited New Harbor, Wiscassett, Boothbay Harbor, Morses sauerkraut, Montsweag flea market, North of the Border, Round Pond, and many other places. What a beautiful retreat for our clan."
