  • So relaxing!!

    "We have had a wonderful week here at the Lofty Cottage. The house has everything we needed for our home away from home. The views off the deck are spectacular, especially in the morning as the sun rises. My 3 kids have enjoyed playing and jumping off the dock. They have explored the rocky coastline during low tide and have especially enjoyed their own "fort" up in the loft of the home. We have watched daily the lobster boats haul their traps right infront of the house, saw a harbor seal off the dock and enjoyed the beautiful sailboats coming and going. The 2 kayaks were a huge bonus for our group. We kayaked the shoreline and went to the little island in the middle. Everything has been great, relaxing and enjoyable!! Morse Cribstone restaurant, the Dolphin restaurant, the Candy Shop (for ice cream), 2 Coves Farm for fresh meats and produce, The Vegetable Corner, the Island Eatery and taking a Lobster Boat Tour with Capt. Jay McGowen were all spectacular!! Harpswell is a wonderful area with very friendly people. We will be back!!"

  • Freeport, ME - Charming Cabin in the Woods & on the Water

    "We knew the moment we drove into the area that we had chosen the perfect place to stay in Maine. The cabin delivered the "woodsy" rustic charm we were seeking. The walk to the waterfront is a visual delight with walkways, a beautiful rock wall, and the clean, fresh smell of pine. Our mid-west roots had not prepared us for the high tide | low tide schedule and we found ourselves watching it daily to see when we could head out with the kayaks or low tide to dig for clams. The cabin was well stocked with paper items, spices, and clean towels and linens. On the one rainy day we had, we dove into the treasure trove of movies available and greatly enjoyed a movie afternoon. Easy access to Freeport and shopping. Day trips to Boothbay Harbor, Bath, Bar Harbor, and Portland are an easy drive. Loved hiking in Wolf Neck State Park. We highly recommend the waterfront cabin in the woods for a great Maine experience and hope to return next year!"

  • A lovely escape

    "Lilliana's guest house is a very pleasant, spacious, comfortable home. It was unusually hot and humid the week we were there so we were very grateful for the AC units upstairs and downstairs. The home is beautifully decorated with lots of original artwork and soothing colors. The beds and furniture were in great shape and very comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped and had newer appliances. Her property is unique and lends itself to quiet strolls enjoying and observing nature, perfect for birdwatching, reading in the hammock, or children who just need to run around and explore. Although none of the 4 of us kayak, I imagine the bay would be a kayaker's dream, beautiful and calm with lots of areas to explore. We got to see clam diggers off-shore at low tide and my daughters and I got to see a bald eagle high in the tree above the dock. What a treat! Lilliana was delightful, always available for questions including recommendations for good places to eat. We highly recommend going to the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant in nearby Harpswell if you'd like a delicious dinner with a view! Get there early for dinner and enjoy at drink on the deck while you wait for a table. Spectacular sunsets, delicious food and great service! Lilliana's home is also a short country drive thru the woods and rolling fields to the college town of Brunswick and Boothbay Harbor makes a perfect day trip! Enjoy: )"

  • 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."
