Recent Drakes Island reviews

  • Exactly what we needed

    "My family of four had a great stay for our summer vacation. This home had everything we needed. Living area was spacious, as were the bedrooms. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill and eating on the picnic table. We made the short walk down to the beach every morning. And it was a nice central location that was only short drive to everything in town. We missed out on this property last year, but I was glad to have been able to book it this year. We had a great time."

  • A great place to stay

    "Our week at Shady Lane was very enjoyable. The process from making reservations to arriving was easy and the owner was quick to respond to questions and offer assistance. The house was bright and cheery, clean and well stocked with all that we needed and has comfortable accommodations and furnishings. The play loft was enjoyed by our grandchildren and a nice getaway space for them. The beach is amazing and is only a moderate walk away. The neighborhood was quiet and well kept. The photos give a true characterization of the home and we look forward to spending more time at this lovely residence. We highly recommend this property for a great vacation."

  • Peaceful location

    "I searched high and low (and many, many hours online) for rental homes and cottages that would fit our needs, desires and budget for a week vacation in beautiful Maine. This was our 1st stay at Drakes Island (we had driven through the neighborhoods and fell in love with the trees, grassy yards and family friendly feel the year prior). This home, located on the North end of the private beach section was just was I was looking for! The private beach entrance is a walk across the street, you can see and hear the ocean from the house and the location is QUIET- not crowded and noisy as some beach areas can be! This is a location surrounded by long time residents of the island...no other rentals are nearby. If you are looking for a peaceful location in a respectable area, then this is the place for your visit. The owners take great pride in the cottage and it is well equipped, comfortable and clean. They took time and effort to compile a binder full of local favorite restaurants, sites to see, things to do and the history of Drakes Island as well as the history of many of the residents who live or have lived on DI. It truly is a friendly place to stay and we felt very comfortable there for our week. The owners welcomed us with a plate of fresh cookies upon arrival- how kind! Thanks you Elizabeth, Michael and Lauren for opening up this cottage for our summer "bucket-list" get away! Nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of ocean waves!"
