  • Cousins at Cousin's Cove

    "Cousins at Cousin’s Cove We had a party of 14 cousins stay at Cousin’s Cove (appropriately named for our family reunion) in July 2016. The house was perfect for our reunion. The house was well - equipped for cooking and relaxing. The bedrooms were ample in size and met all of our needs. One bedroom in particular- the Greenhouse room - was a bit hot. I suggest bringing an extra fan if you are hot natured and stay in this room during the summer. The rest of the rooms had adequate ventilation with the windows open. Being from Texas, I was a bit leery about the house not having AC, but I found out that I needed blankets during the night. One thing we missed when reviewing the house description was that there was not a washer or dryer. Be sure to pack enough clothes or be prepared to go to a laundry mat. (We found it.) Our family took advantage of the wonderful screened - in porch, grill, and back yard. The view from the porch and the house are spectacular. Our family loved to watch the tidal change and the moon rise on the horizon over the water. A few of the cousins went out on the two house kayaks. Be sure to watch the tides and not go out when the tide is low, for you could get caught and have to wait for high tide to return. There were life jackets to fit all sizes. Mark and Alice, the owners, graciously offered to take us on a boat ride as part of our stay. We had a fantastic time and the ride was one of the highlights of our vacation. They gave us a wonderful tour of the area, took us to the puffin colony and gave us insights that only a true native of the area could. We had an avid fisherman in our group who was not catching any fish near the house. Mark, suggested where to fish and then he had success. The cousins had a great time at Cousin’s Cove, Overall, this is a wonderful home for our group of 14. If our family returns to Maine, we would definitely stay at Cousin’s Cove."

  • It is a nice little one bedroom. Very cozy with everything you need including a lovely deck.

    "Perfect place to get away. Quiet location when I traveled. Great view from deck! There is a little beach just a short walk away for some fun rock explorations. Would definitely visit again!"

  • 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!"

    "Our family has been to Gordon's 4 or5 times now and are never disappointed. The house is very welcoming and very well kept. It's very clean and has everything but groceries and someone to cook them! Quite and very comfortable. Close to town. Had another wonderful vacation. Would recommend to anyone."
