  • Beautiful, serene, peaceful and blissfull stay :)

    "My husband, myself, and my niece stayed at this wonderful cottage in July and we can't say enough good things about this wonderful, peaceful cottage. The view is beyond gorgeous and we were in heaven. The cottage is clean, cozy and just what we wanted for our Maine vacation. The cottage is well appointed and in a serene, beautiful setting. We are already planning our next stay and have such wonderful memories of this gorgeous place. A beautiful, blissful setting...what more could one ask for in Maine? An amazing stay!"

  • Fell in love with Benson Farm six years ago and keep going back!

    "We’ve been going to the Benson Farm for the month of August for the past six years – we went on a whim the first year, fell in love with the place and keep going back. Actually, not only did we fall in love but so has our extended family (grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins) who never miss a chance to come visit us while we are there! You could not ask for a more idyllic corner of the world to relax and enjoy your summer days. The house sits on an expansive property on a small peninsula so you enjoy views of the water from both the East and the West. You wake up in the upstairs bedrooms to the sun rising over the water and you watch the sun set over the Camden Hills on the other side in the evening. We spend most of our time outside – whether playing on the tennis court, jumping into the water off the dock, walking on the beach, biking around the island, playing ping pong or board games in the barn, playing all sorts of sports on the front lawn, or just sitting in the grass or on the porch and enjoying the sun and the beautiful views. Our three children (who are now 13, 11 and 8) love the freedom of being able to bike the three miles to the grocery store and playground/basketball court or the six miles to town to get ice cream or look around the gift shop – it’s a very kid-friendly place. The house is large and there is room for a number of people to stay so it’s a great place for families to get together. We eat, talk, laugh and relax. In fact, from the moment the ferry leaves Rockland to cross over Penobscot Bay to North Haven, you feel the stress melting away. I actually took pictures of various views from the house and put them in my office to try to maintain my North Haven summer zen throughout the year! It’s really a gorgeous spot!"

  • Perfect!

    "I have rented many vacation homes over the years. The turtles nest is the cleanest and most comfortable I've ever rented. It is very comfortable for an extended family. It is a very lovely home in a great location. Highly recommended!"

  • Relaxing Paradise part 1

    "Clean. Complete Solitude. Exceptional Relaxation. It is impossible to put into the right words just how spectacular the Grand House is. Pictures can't either. The description of the property is as advertised. No surprises. Everything was clean. Everything was in perfect working condition. The pictures were not outdated. Our stay was for one week. We always bring food for a week and eat in, and in fact never left the property until we ran out of coffee on our fifth day. Washing machine worked. Clothes line for drying outside in a sunny area. Large microwave. Stove and oven was gas, not electric. Plenty of pots and pans for all types of cooking. Good counterspace and overall kitchen layout. Glassware for all types of drinks, too. Fridge and freezer large like at home. Table in kitchen sat 4 or the table in the dining room for a more formal dinner. The single floor house was ideal for us. Quiet ceiling fans kept us not feeling the 85-90 degree heat during our week. Nights were cool as expected. We often commented that whoever designed the Grand House must have known what they were doing. The porch was the feature, looking out into the pond. As we entered the house, a sense of "can you believe it" overcame us as we saw the view, realized the privacy and felt the homeyness. The openness of the kitchen invited conversation and comfort. The outdoor deck with grill was not shaded, and provided the perfect place to get a suntan or eat outdoors. The bedrooms were decorated in fitting with the house. The bathroom was all it needed to be as we never came close to running out of hot water and the shower pressure was ideal. Chairs were always comfortable. Lighting was exceptional, especially natural lightening. Even the bathroom had natural lightening. Sliding doors in each bedroom. Outlets in good places for phones, tablets, etc.. The places where we spent our time were designed so the view was always in sight: kitchen, bedroom, and porch. "Open" bar stool area between kitchen and dining / family room made it so it did not seem like separate rooms, but we were together at all times. Wifi worked well, and needed to be unplugged to reset. We never turned on the TV. Cell service (Verizion) was only needed once and worked only on the dock. .. continued .."
