  • Already planning to go back!

    "My family started talking about going back to the Homestead before our vacation was over! Our 8 y.o. twins loved playing on the huge protected beach with such variation of high and low tide and a short run from the house (digging, hermit crabbing, swimming). The sunsets were DIVINE (and I'll admit, we didn't make it up in time to see the sunrises, which I hear are great too!). The house is well stocked in the kitchen and accomodations and very comfortable. The location is quiet and relaxing, and you can easily get to nearby attractions if you are looking for more activity to occupy your time. The Johnson family is super friendly and helpful, you will definitely feel "at home" in their home at the Homestead. Looking forward to booking 2017 soon!"

  • Peaceful Secluded Getaway

    "This was our first "family" vacation that all four generations were in attendance. Parents, children, grandchildren, & great grandchildren. 20 of us to be exact, with five of those being under the age of 10. I can't say enough about Sarah and her willingness to help me plan and iron out details for this vacation. She was so kind and helpful throughout the nine month planning process. The house was more than big enough to accommodate our large group. We had evening meals in the great room with all 20 of us sitting around the two large tables. We came from Pennsylvania where it had been hot and typically 100% humidity. The relief of cool air, low humidity, open windows, and no air conditioning was a much welcome break for all us. The short walk to the beach was not an issue, even for my parents who are in their late 70's. The children all found sea shells, sea glass, sand dollars, and had so much fun walking out to the "island" when the tide was out. We walked along The Giant Stairs, visited The Candy Store, Land's End Gift Store, and were able to rent paddle boards for the week. There were plenty of sand toys at the house for the kids who had a fierce sand castle competition. The kitchen was more than adequately stocked with plenty of dishes, flatware, pots, pans, etc. There were two coffee pots, which was great for such a large group. The yard is extremely large and was perfect for the kids. The adults were even conned into a game of wiffle ball. If you want chocolates on your pillow, fancy restaurants, and high end shopping, this isn't the place for you. But, if you want a vacation where curling up with a book on a nice front porch, listening to wind blow through pine trees, and kids giggling in the yard is the ordinary day, this is your place. If morning walks on a quiet beach is more appealing than a bustling boardwalk, this is your place. We had a fabulous vacation. Thank you Sarah for help making that happen."

  • Already planning our return!

    "Our family of 5 LOVED this home. Sherri has paid so much attention to detail and ensures that her guests are extremely comfortable. We were arriving late and she turned on the heat so my kids would not be chilly. As we pulled up, the top floor was illuminated giving the house a "lighthouse" look and we knew we were at the right destination. The kids slept on the top floor and enjoyed the 360 views at sunrise to gently wake them. The antiques, collectables, repurposed items....all of it made this home so charming. Kitchen and linen closets are well supplied, we didn't need to bring anything but whatever we wanted to cook and toiletries, which was great with an already full mini van lol. We cannot wait to come back and are already looking at our calendar. Sherri, thank you, thank you for helping to make my 40th birthday weekend a great one for my family! ps- Cooks was delish!"

  • Gracious Hosts!

    "My wife and I had planned a trip to Orrs & Bailey along with our son and daughter-in-law to celebrate our son's 30th birthday. This was where our son wanted to spend it and it didn't take much arm twisting for us. What we didn't expect was to find ourselves under evacuation orders that week as hurricane Matthew approached our home in Charleston, SC. We needed to get out and called the owners to see if we could possibly check in a day early. They could not have been more gracious and understanding. We enjoyed the most spectacular weather in Maine as we watched the hurricane make landfall in our hometown. All to say -- our heartfelt thanks for this beautiful island get-a-way. Cameras cannot capture the views, the sounds of waves on the rocks, and the sweet scent in the air. Highly recommend this home, and moreover its owners. Thank you!!"
