  • Enchanting!

    "This was our second year to spend a week in September at the Carousel. We will definitely want to return again and again. The house is beautifully located on a bluff overlooking the ocean with a deck that offers gorgeous views of the sunrise, the ocean with working lobster boats and, of course, the sound of surf pounding below. One special feature that we loved was the way the sun warms the deck in the morning so that even on chilly September morings it was comfortable to sit outside and enjoy coffee with the view. Inside, the house is well equipped for cooking and relaxing. We loved the comfortable living room with its many windows, making it possible to enjoy the view even on rainy or stormy days. There are two bedrooms downstairs, each with its own bathroom (beautifully rennovated) and a bed upstairs in the loft. The only problem I could find with the house is that a couple sleeping upstairs cannot access a bathroom without going through one of the downstairs bedrooms. If children are sleeping in the loft ths might be ok, but not for, say, a third couple. Otherwise, I would say the house is perfect. If you prefer to do something other than sit on the deck, there are lovely places to visit nearby - for example, the Marshall Point Lighthouse, the little village of Port Clyde, Drift-in Beach, the Lobster Lane Used Bookstore (unfortunately only open on weekends) and Monhegan Island which has a nice boat ride to get there and some wonderful hiking. The house and its surroundings are all a very special experience!"

  • Beautiful and Serene Location

    "My cousin and I stayed at the Camp for a girls getaway week and had a fabulous time! The owners, Bruce and Liz, are very accommodating and the camp has everything you could possibly need. If you love nature, this is a great place to go to enjoy it. The amount of wildlife at the lake is amazing! Most especially the loons and eagles. My cousin enjoyed fishing from various locations on the lake and shore and I especially enjoyed kayaking at sunrise and sunset. We enjoyed dinners on the deck overlooking the lake while listening to the birds. We hiked nearby in Acadia National Park as well as around the lake. The camp has something for everyone - for outdoor activity there's fishing, hiking, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boating and sailing; and for more sedate activities, there's TV, movies and relaxing on the deck or down by the lake with a good book or a pair of binoculars for bird watching. I definitely recommend this Camp to nature lovers; people who enjoy outdoor recreation; and people who are looking for a serene location to simply take time to relax and recharge."

  • Great property & location for the ultimate in family relaxation

    "Sunrise Cottage is unlike any other property we've ever rented...in a great way! I can't possibly say enough about the perfect location with the beach accessibility, wonderful views of islands & wildlife, and the close proximity to downtown Rockland & Camden for dining out. Be sure to check out Cafe Miranda for some super fresh & funky food! We were able to launch our kayaks easily from the beach and had nightly campfires in the fire pit overlooking the ocean. Even my husband (who has a slightly tough time relaxing) was able to unwind & enjoy the peaceful location & area. We kayaked over to Ash Island on three occasions and successfully hunted for sea glass. Having the 3 separate sleeping quarters was convenient for our extended family & teenagers--not to mention the Xbox 360 in the bunk house. The owner was accessible, friendly & proactive in providing great service. Highly recommended retreat and we'll surely be back."

  • Beautiful view, comfortable cottage

    "We really enjoyed staying in this cottage in Phippsburg. Beautiful view of the ocean and small harbor from the porch (front and side) and yet very private. Cottage was clean and comfortable--unpretentious, i.e. 'cottagey'. Bed was especially comfortable. Kitchen included everything for cooking and eating, though bring a sharp knife for food prep. I very much appreciated that sheets and towels came wrapped up; since we made up our own bed we knew it was clean. both towels and sheets were wonderfully white. We did not meet the owner, but we very much liked Bill who takes care of the place. We didn't need anything, but if you did he lives right up the hill. End of July we had absolutely perfect weather, warm sunny days and cool nights. Some nights were clear and we saw stars and meteors! For eating out, we especially liked Anna's, which is nearby."
