  • 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."

  • Lovely digs and sweet people

    "Echoing the previous reviews to say that this rental had everything we could have wanted and more for ourselves and our two kids, 5 and 7. Extremely comfortable, peaceful, and well-appointed, in a terrific spot within spitting distance of gorgeous coastline to explore, great meals and cute towns. The little beach, changing tides, rocks and sea creatures were endlessly fascinating for my city kids; my daughter liked to run around the yard shouting "I'm living the dream!" The whole area was very friendly, low-key, and accessible; it was easy to feel at home. Gordon and Sheila were so kind and welcoming, full of great tips for local spots. I would stay here again in an instant and hope we can. Many thanks!"

  • We loved Mr. Skip and Mrs. Judy's place

    "Our family of six stayed here. Three of the older children shared the bunk beds and we also had an infant use a pack and play that was provided. The place is very child friendly. You need not travel with toys as there are bins with toys for the kids. The apartment was very clean. The apartment truly has everything you need. They also provided beach items like toys and chairs. Mrs. Judy baked twice for our family. We really fell in love with Mrs. Judy and Mr. Skip as much as we did with their apartment. They were truly accommodating, friendly and just lovely people. We felt like they struck just the right balance with accommodating their guests and giving privacy to their guests. Lobster night in the apartment with Judy's help was memorable and a day on Megunticook lake with Skip who let all the children drive the boat was another. We loved that we could easily get to Camden, Belfast, Owls Head and Rockport. We will be back next year."
