  • 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."

  • A little paradise

    "We spent ten days at Birch Point at the end of May with our three kids (all below 4 years old). The property turned out even better than on the pictures, making it an ideal retreat for families with young children; it's very well equipped, incredibly clean and well thought. Most of all, the view is breathtaking. Jon Leaver was always super helpful and diligent in answering all our questions. Overall, this was an ideal stay. We definitely recommend this property for vacations outside of the world ... we came back to NYC fully rejuvenated!"

  • A wonderful, cozy home.

    "My family and I were lucky enough to spend Easter weekend at this lovely home. We enjoyed it so much that as soon as we left, we booked it for Thanksgiving as well! It is a wonderful, cozy home to return to after a day of shopping in town, or hiking at Wolfe's Neck, both of which are within minutes of the property. Some of our favorite features of this home are the beautiful view, the quality linens, the hot hot showers, and the friendly owner. Thank you for another lovely stay. We hope we will be able to return soon!"

  • week stay at the cottage

    "we stayed at this house, one of the most peaceful, private, and beautiful places we have stayed in Maine. It is very secluded, backs into the woods, and has an open front of cottage with a wonderful deck and lookout...you can watch the tides go in and way out, paddle in them when in....we went out one evening, and the water was so warm, like bath water...the rooms were comfortable, cozy, and fine...you can walk down the road to a nature preserve, climb up to the top, and see out for miles and miles and miles....close to Popham beach, and Reed state park, both highly recommended places to go...we loved our stay!!!! I would hope to return next year..."
