  • 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!"

  • Little Red House, the quintessential Maine island summer cottage

    "This review is in two parts. One review is for the island and the other for the house. I have been to coastal Maine and its islands many many times but I have never been to this area. Once you are there you would never know you are that close to the mainland/civilization. If you have never been to Chebeague, you are in for a treat. If you are looking for an action packed vacation that includes an active night life etc. this may not be the place for you. But if you are looking to disconnect and reconnect with yourself, family or nature then this IS the place for you. Chebeague is the way life used to be, offering you a relaxed environment that is hard to come by in this day and age of technology. It is an amazing healing place. This was a solo vacation for me. I chose this island because I felt that if I felt too secluded I was close enough to Portland that I could be in the thick of it if I needed to be around people. I never even thought of leaving. As a solo female traveler I felt more than safe at all times. The Little Red House (LRH) is the quintessential Maine island summer cottage. I kayaked over from the mainland, pulled up on the beach and walked my things across the street to a little slice of heaven. The LRH is comfortable and cozy. There were several recent renovations done to the house which made it even nicer. It is clear this is a treasured home. All meals including morning coffee and afternoon cocktails are meant to be experienced on the screened-in porch overlooking the harbor. It is stocked with most everything you will need. Minus a few tools, that I was able to improvise, I even made Maine Blueberry Jam. Everyone I encountered was beyond nice and helpful. The owner Luke is great to deal with, he made my experience even better. Gail the island host was beyond helpful. I highly recommend the LRH, I can't wait to visit again next summer. And last but not least, the outdoor shower. Need I say more!! Cheers, M"

  • Hidden Relaxing, Quiet Gem

    "We stayed here for the Fourth of July weekend and it was very relaxing. My 10 year old twin boys enjoyed playing down by the beach, swinging on the hammock and watching the fireworks from the bedroom windows. We also did a little hiking in Wolfe Neck's Park. The cottage was clean and the owner was so thoughtful to leave a basket of Maine goodies such as maple syrup, chips and chocolate. There were also board games and bubbles for the boys but there was too many things to do that we just did not get time to play with them. The garden is lovely and my husband made me a salad from the herb garden. Laurie was very quick to respond to my request. If you are looking for a quiet, quaint place to relax by the water, this is the place!"
