  • Complete Relaxation!

    "This vacation rental and location worked out perfectly for our needs...Two families traveling together who wanted to relax and dine on local lobster on the provided picnic table with a beautiful view! Great beach access for kayaking and swims. Location of house felt private and in protected waters. Kitchen was well equipped . Views in Master bedrooms were exceptional. Our only suggestions would be to include a more detailed "Guide Book" for guests to detail what days to put out trash, etc...... maybe this is online but we were "off the grid" for a total relaxation vacation...which was easy to get at this place!"

  • lovely cottage with beautiful views

    "Our family of 5 stayed in the cottage during the Bowdoin graduation (2016). I echo the comments of the previous review.... welcomed by flowers, wine, and everything we needed (BBQ, blender, bikes, etc). It reminded me of the Maine cottages of my youth. It was a perfect location to easily get to events in Brunswick but have a 'get-away' to host friends and family for dinners. There are several tables of different sizes and lots of chairs and we were able to seat many on the porch on one beautiful evening, and then were able to set up dinner for 8 in the livingroom on a cool night. It was just perfect. we loved the walks around Mere Point and recommend getting lobsters and other freshly baked goods from the marina/store near by. When i inquired about picking up lobsters, I discovered the marina will cook lobsters for you and package them to stay warm and they baked rolls and a blueberry desert to order! I would definitely recommend this cottage for families. We hope to come back."

  • The house is beautiful! Modern and cozy!

    "The house was wonderful! We felt comfotable asking Mark for information and assistance, when needed. The area is so peaceful. Beach is just a short walk and swimming close by as well. We enjoyed the amenities, like the hot tub and fire pit! We also took advantage of renting a golf cart from Mark, which proved to be very convenient. Definitely interested in returning someday!!"

  • Summer Paradise

    "Stayed here for a [too short!] week with my wife and 11 year-old son, along with another couple and their boy, also 11. The house is immaculate, and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The two main bedrooms are bright and airy, with big windows looking out over Casco Bay - it feels like you're on a cruise ship, waking up to the sound of gulls and distant lobster boats. The place is brilliant for kids - the boys just banged out the door in the morning to spend the day with new friends they met down at the ferry dock and casino, where there's a lovely little sand beach and a swimming float. They fished (caught some mackerel), gathered mussels, hunted for sea glass, climbed rocks, swam and explored and came back home when they were hungry. The islanders are very friendly and helpful - upon arrival we were greeted like old friends and lent a golf cart to take our stuff to the house (about a quarter mile or so from the ferry), and invited to the Saturday supper, where we met even more great folks who lent us bicycles for the week and gave us some pointers on what to see and do. The whole place is very laid back, and it feels like happy hour 24/7. We day-tripped to Peaks Island where we rode bikes and had a nice lunch, walked across the sand bar to Great Diamond at low tide (another beautiful island) and took the ferry to Long Island, which has some of the best beaches in Maine, with powdery white sand and clear blue water. Portland is one quick ferry ride away, and we had memorable meals at Eventide (go around the corner to Tomasso's for a drink while you're waiting for your table!), Fore and Boone's; the Standard Bakery has great food, too. For groceries, we used Rosemont Bakery right on Commercial Street just a few steps away from the Casco Bay Ferry terminal. They're very nice folks, and they stock excellent local meat, cheese, beer and produce and can deliver to the island daily (wine too!) so you can phone in your order and never leave the island... Which is a nice option to have. Mostly we just lounged around the house, reading and ambling along the coast, exploring the tide pools and fishing off Crab rock, cooling off with a dip at the beach right in front of the house, then enjoying a cocktail or three on the deck, which provided a postcard-perfect sunset every night. And owner Woody and his wife Doris are fantastic - they answered all our questions and paved the way for an unforgettable vacation!"
