  • A great taste of Maine

    "This home was a wonderful setting for our family gathering of 8 people. We cooked lots of blueberry pancakes in the brand new well stocked kitchen and grilled many dinners outside on the deck. Evenings were spent playing games around the generously sized dining room table. Our 8 and 10 year old grandchildren had fun fishing ( we only caught crabs) from the dock, but really loved Popham Beach State Park, 20 minutes away. The location was a perfect launching point for day trips to the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden in Boothbay, LLBean in Freeport and our son's favorite brewery in Portland. Our CA daughter- in- law got her fill of lobster at various local restaurants and we found a Bait and Tackle shop on 209 that had the best homemade pies. It was a wonderful week in a very comfortable home."

  • Nothing Else Like It

    "I take retreat groups to New England every fall, and we just returned from a week at Whitehead. It was amazing! I can't say enough about the beauty of the island. It was perfect for time along walking through the woods or along the shore; the Whistlehouse was made available for when we wanted to gather together at times for discussion. In fact, when the weather didn't allow us to eat our steamed lobster -- done on the rocks out back -- outside, Gigi transformed the Whistlehouse into a perfect picnic setting. Gigi is the manager and cook -- and she is outstanding as both. Her meals were beautiful and delicious -- and Gigi went out of her way to meet the dietary needs of several of my ladies with allergies, etc. She didn't just make sure they had something they could eat; she went out of her way to fix special desserts, entrees, salads -- whatever was needed. We could not have asked for better or more beautiful food -- and plenty of it! Matt was a wonderful captain and guide. We loved his storytelling ability, and his knowledge of the history of the island made it even more special. He took the ladies clam digging, on a sunset cruise, and worked with us to get our two boat loads where they needed to be in a timely way. He was super to accommodate all of our needs -- at the same time making sure we were safe when traveling in the boat. He was great. Gigi and Matt's love for the island comes through. The seven rooms and seven bath rooms was great for our group -- and it was greatly appreciated. The only drawback for a group our size was there wasn't a really good-sized meeting room in the house -- but I appreciated that in the sense that the Lighthouse had been kept like the house would have originally been - with smaller rooms. We made do -- and Gigi was great about letting us move chairs, etc. around to make it all work. I am already trying to think of a class I could bring to the island, for I so want to return. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed in the Lighthouse, the facilities, or the caretakers. Top notch in all ways!"

  • Gogreous cottage

    "Lovely spot to call home for the weekend. The cottage is very comfortable and nicely appointed. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer!"
