  • Fell in love with Benson Farm six years ago and keep going back!

    "We’ve been going to the Benson Farm for the month of August for the past six years – we went on a whim the first year, fell in love with the place and keep going back. Actually, not only did we fall in love but so has our extended family (grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins) who never miss a chance to come visit us while we are there! You could not ask for a more idyllic corner of the world to relax and enjoy your summer days. The house sits on an expansive property on a small peninsula so you enjoy views of the water from both the East and the West. You wake up in the upstairs bedrooms to the sun rising over the water and you watch the sun set over the Camden Hills on the other side in the evening. We spend most of our time outside – whether playing on the tennis court, jumping into the water off the dock, walking on the beach, biking around the island, playing ping pong or board games in the barn, playing all sorts of sports on the front lawn, or just sitting in the grass or on the porch and enjoying the sun and the beautiful views. Our three children (who are now 13, 11 and 8) love the freedom of being able to bike the three miles to the grocery store and playground/basketball court or the six miles to town to get ice cream or look around the gift shop – it’s a very kid-friendly place. The house is large and there is room for a number of people to stay so it’s a great place for families to get together. We eat, talk, laugh and relax. In fact, from the moment the ferry leaves Rockland to cross over Penobscot Bay to North Haven, you feel the stress melting away. I actually took pictures of various views from the house and put them in my office to try to maintain my North Haven summer zen throughout the year! It’s really a gorgeous spot!"

  • Great beach house!

    "We, six adults and two teenagers, spent a lovely week in the Pilot House. The house was fully equipped, nicely furnished and very clean. The location, just off of the beach on the Kennebec River was wonderful. A short walk to a private path led to the beach. I, as a fisherman, and the other guests, loved the ease of access to the beach for sunbathing, walks, drift wood art, dog walking and the beautiful views of West Point, Wood and Pond Islands and the mouth of the river. The kitchen was superbly equipped with everything necessary from gourmet meals to breakfast. The house is informal but very comfortable. The fenced in yard was nicely maintained as were the flower and herb gardens. Our dogs loved the yard and we were happy they were in a secure fenced area. Our week was very hot, especially for Maine, but there were fans in every bedroom and a whole house fan as well. We loved the wrap around porch, the library, the screened in back porch and the game room. The owner couldn't have been nicer to deal with. I have rented properties here, in the Caribbean, and in Europe, and can say without hesitation that the Pilot House is one of my all time favorites."
