  • 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!"

  • Relaxation

    "My husband, 9 year old and I stayed at Long Cove Cottages for about 2 weeks and it was the highlight of the summer. The proprietors are there when you need them. The cottages were clean, cute and had everything we needed to cook like we were at home. Of course there are excellent local restaurants. Probably our favorite was the Happy Clam just down the road. All of the photos and description of the cottages and area are accurate. There is no end to options of things to do and that are entertaining for all ages. Prepare for a chill if you plan on taking a dip in the ocean, but there are warmer lakes nearby. We spent most of our time relaxing in the cabin - sitting on the deck watching the weather come in and the lobster boats come and go out of the cove. The only negative was having to leave at the end of our stay."

  • Vacation of a Lifetime

    "My Sisters and I picked Maine this year for our annual family get together.I happened upon this house on VRBO and loved it immediately. There are essentially three wings to the house which made it easy for our families to get together but also to spend time separate if needed. There were fresh linens including towels when we arrived. The view from all the windows overlooking the Cove was amazing every day. Our favorite part of the day was watching the tide roll in and out. The house was completely outfitted with dishes, pots and pans, and a grill to give us all the comforts of home. We were conveniently located to everything including sailing,deep sea fishing,wandering art exhibits and state parks. The owners had two Kayaks there which the kids loved using. They even made sure there were life jackets randomly sized for everyone. Mark and Alice took some of us our on their boat for a joyful couple hours. There are several fresh fish/lobster options right down the road. You can stop by the Co-op and purchase fresh lobster from the fisherman or visit the fishing Co-op right outside of town where the local fishermen bring their fish to sell. The owners not only invested to make sure we had a comfortable place to stay, they went out of their way to share the reasons they love the area. Those little known facts about a place you just can't Google such as locations famous for paintings like N.C. Wyeth. My only regret is we had to leave this little bit of paradise to come back home. Great Memories made in the rental and Port Clyde. We will be visiting again soon!"

  • Great location

    "This is exactly what you want when you go to Maine. Great location at the end of a dirt road so it was very private (we brought our dogs and they loved the yard and we felt safe with them being able to run). Wallace's market is close by for the essentials and an awesome lobster roll. You can be at the docks getting super fresh lobster within minutes. We were really relaxed and thought the house had great amenities, like the kayaks, grills and board games. The deck was fantastic and we spent a lot of time on it just enjoying the great view to the cove"
