  • A Wonderful Place to Stay

    "My wife and I had a wonderful time staying here for nine nights. The apartment is on the second floor over a garage where John stores his tractor. It is large with a great kitchen to work in, a sleeping area set aside from the main living area and a large "living room" with plush comfortable chairs, lots of windows, a large porch, a stereo amplifier, television, DVD player (and DVD's) and plenty of lighting. The bed is very comfortable, there were extra blankets available and there were a lot of small items that came in handy. If you come during the right time of the year you get to pick whatever you want from their farm market at no extra cost. What is really nice is the quiet. The one apartment is all there is to rent out and the only other house on the long lane leading towards the water is John & Lucy's house and even that is set pretty far away. So you have real privacy. The television is for watching DVD's or streaming from your computer, there is no on-air reception. The bathroom is functional but just a little weird with a shower and toilet in one small area, then a bar-sized sink in an adjoining area that closes off for privacy. Lots of hot water and lots of storage for a bathroom. There is a dishwasher (that I never used), a microwave and plenty of pots, pans, dishes, cups and utensils. The walk to the beach takes six or seven minutes at most - once you're there it is very, very private. Rocky of course (this is Maine) but there will be two chairs waiting for you and more that you can carry down if you like. We can't recommend this place highly enough."

  • 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!"

  • Perfect for family gathering

    "This last June, my wife and I, our children and our children’s children, all 20 of us, spent a delightful June week at Pleasant River Farm on Vinalhaven Island, Maine. The property consisted of a large two story farmhouse decorated with numerous wonderful watercolors by the owner. Added to this was an even bigger open barn with swings, ping pong, picnic tables and plenty of space to just play in. At the back of the barn was another living space with a second kitchen, and 2 bedrooms that could sleep eight. Both buildings had large decks to enjoy. We were well taken care of by the amazing caretaker who answered our every question, took us to see fireworks, and helped us get lobster. There was a huge lawn to play games on and a short walk to water for using the available kayak and canoe. We just loved this indoor and outdoor space. Vinalhaven Island itself had numerous hikes to enjoy, an interesting town just two miles from our farmhouse, quarries to swim in and as much lobster as you could ever eat. We’d recommend this stay to anyone and are seriously considering returning for a second visit."

  • Charming and cozy

    "This is a bright and cheery, cozy and charming cottage on a quiet road. It is surrounded by fields, the view of a beautiful neighboring farmhouse, and the ocean only a short walk away. The owners were readily available for questions and suggestions of things to do and places to go. It felt very private with a stunning starry sky at night. I highly recommend this as a vacation spot for small families, honeymooners, or good friends. ~Ellie"
