  • It was great!

    "We really enjoyed our stay. The place was well equipped. It was very private and close to all kinds of outdoor activities. But our favorite thing was exploring the beach and looking at the stars from the deck. This will be our first choice if we get the chance to visit Maine again."

  • What A Find!

    "We just spent a wonderful week at Arbor House and wish it had been two! My husband and I travel to Maine several times a year and normally rent out of town. As we are hoping to retire to the Rockland area from New York in the next few years we needed to test out the town. Well, we had a great experience. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you could need. My husband is a cook and was wanting for nothing. I am an early riser and was thrilled to watch the sunrise over the harbor each morning from our second story deck. The art work on the walls, the books, the gardens, the proximity to downtown all combined to make this our new place to rent from now on. Top it off with a kind and gracious hostess, Ann, and it has it all!"

  • Beautiful home in a fantastic location

    "This house was the perfect size and layout for our large, multi-generational family. In total, we had 9 adults and 2 children ranging from ages 3 to 60. There was enough room in the home for everyone to spread out to have time alone, while the main floor was perfect when we all got together. The kitchen was fabulous for cooking family dinners and we made a lot of use of the expansive deck. All of the little extras provided, from the spice drawer to the game/puzzle collection, to the provided firewood and binoculars made it easy to feel at home from the minute we arrived. The location is very quiet and surrounded by woods with no road traffic, yet still only a few minutes out of town. The sunrise every morning over the river was absolutely beautiful and the campfire pit was perfect for the evenings. Communicating with Sandra was quick and easy and she provided us with some great recommendations of things to do and places to eat in the area which we took advantage of. There are only a couple things I would change about the home to make it even better: 1) The house only has 3 window A/C units. It was a bit tricky figuring out who in our group would be stuck in a bedroom without the A/C. It turned out just fine because we went in late August and the temperature cooled down a lot at night, so the provided box window fans kept the rooms plenty cool. However, if we had gone earlier in the summer without the cooler evenings, the older adults in our group would have had some problems sleeping in the heat. 2) It was a little tricky figuring out how to make use of the canoe since the shoreline is very rocky. On our last day we realized that high tide in the early afternoon was the perfect time to launch the boat. We noticed many other homes on the river had long docks that extend into the water, which would be beneficial for using the canoe even at lower tide. 3) The Queen bedroom on the main floor (the converted office) lacked a bit of privacy due to the glass pocket doors that were only covered with a sheer curtain. My sister-in-law ended up staying comfortably in this room, but an adult couple might want more privacy. Overall, I would highly recommend this home and location for visiting Maine. My family had an awesome time and if we ever come back to the area, this is where we would stay again without hesitation! Thank you Sandra for sharing your home with us!!!"

  • Absolutely lovely

    "It was well stocked with modern conveniences. Very clean and comfortable. There is no wi-fi, so just make sure you have plenty of data on your device. The owners were very nice."
