    "My wife and I totally enjoyed our two week stay. The house was spacious and comfortable, and our hosts could not have been more accommodating and helpful. It is but a 5 minute walk to the heart of the commercial district with shops and restaurants, but the surrounding neighbors are very quiet and reserved. When we come back next year to Maine, this home will certainly be on our list!"

  • cozy cottage, spectacular setting

    "My husband and I stayed at the Crockett's Cove fisherman's cottage for two weeks. The setting is simply extraordinary, majestic, and pristine. The house sits just above a tidal flat, with the high-tide line only a couple of feet from the back of the house. With the tide going in and out each day, a staggering amount of wildlife parades past the cottage -- great blue herons fishing in the tidal flats, a family of osprey nesting adjacent to the house, the occasional seal, a raccoon with her cubs, squirrels around the house, rabbits, and sea-ducks of all sorts. Nature is close at hand there, and totally cinematic. It was hard for us to tear ourselves away from the property, there was so much to watch and pay attention to. There are many exquisite nature walks on Vinalhaven, and spectacular quarries for swimming, a wonderful farmers market twice a week, several good restaurants, incredibly friendly people -- too many things to experience in one trip. Our hosts were warm, helpful, responsive and prompt. They provided thorough information on the logistical and cultural aspects of the island, the intricate process of bringing a car on the ferry, maps for the nature walks, and even a canoe for exploring Crockett's Cove. The house was clean, nicely maintained inside & out, and well appointed. But -- and this is the ONLY 'but' -- it is cluttered and over-furnished. In the grand scheme, this was a trifling matter. We would rent this cottage again without hesitation, and have already recommended it to friends."

  • Fabulous

    "We enjoyed an extremely relaxing stay in this wonderful house with our two sets of parents, 6 adults in total. The listing description is accurate, however it’s the small personal touches not mentioned that really escalate this rental to an exceptional standard; table linens and napkins, fire-lighting equipment, spare waterproofs for those rainy days, the list could go on! As we were six adults it was important for us to have enough space to spread out and enjoy different activities in the evenings; and 4 well appointed bathrooms was also a massive plus – no queues! Kayaking in the bay was also a highlight for us – so convenient not to have to hire kayaks. The property was spotlessly clean and well equipped, and the caretaker (Rosie) stopped by to make sure that we had everything that we needed. Good selection of cookware and bakeware for those who like to make their meals at home. The owner (Steve) was very easy to deal with, responsive and reasonable, and even went as far as to purchase a tea kettle for my tea-obsessed Mum – thank you! We ate at Primo one evening – only a mile from the house, booking is a must. We enjoyed the walk to Owlshead from the house, and also expended some energy climbing to the magnificent viewpoint in Camden Hills State Park – it’s worth the climb, the view was spectacular. Camden and Rockland are very pretty little towns with plenty to engage even the most dedicated shopper. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and relatives and hope to return in the future, thank you for making our stay so memorable."

  • Fantastic Stay with Wonderful Ocean Views!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful oceanfront house in Spruce Head, Maine! The views are absolutely stunning and the house is wonderfully clean and fully stocked. We enjoyed many hours just sitting on the deck enjoying the view, which was beautiful at sunrise, sunset, and any time in between. The master bedroom has an amazing view of the water and its own private balcony. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook wonderful meals while looking out at the ocean. The living room has plenty of comfortable seating that also look out towards the ocean. The house is located really close (about a 5 minute drive) to multiple lobster shacks, which were all super delicious and super fresh -- The lobster boats are parked in the water right behind the shacks! Lynda and Joe were wonderful hosts and super responsive leading up to and throughout our stay. I would highly recommend this beautiful rental and hope to return!"
