  • 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."

  • A great stay in Maine

    "We had a girlfriends reunion at this beautiful Maine home and I can't say enough about the comfort and location of this charming waterfront cottage. We had plenty of space to spread out, a great kitchen equipped with everything that you could possibly need, a wonderfully wide wrapped porch where we spent hours enjoying our morning coffee, having evening cocktails, watching the boats go by, and catching up with old friends. The Owl's Nest has been very well thought out and provides every comfort for you to enjoy coastal Maine at it's best. The home is "tucked in" to enjoy all the privacy that you would need but close enough for walking to the charming general store where the breakfast pizza is so delicious. We enjoyed fishing, shopping and dining in the quaint downtown area, relaxing walks throughout Boothbay, cooking in the great kitchen, and warm cozy fires during the cool evenings of May. And, our weather was awesome so it made for a perfect week for making great memories. We all loved it and want to come back with our families. Next time though, we will be enjoying the boathouse... having ping pong tournaments and dancing under the disco ball.... just love that touch! Thank you, Bob, for the gracious comfort of your home for your guests."

  • Beautiful house with an amazing location

    "My friends and I have been moving around every year to get together and catch up and have some summer fun. This is the fourth place we've been to and I heard from everyone it was our favorite. It's close enough to activities that make it easier to do something on the nice days, but is also secluded enough to make it the perfect vacation getaway. It sits on Kezar Lake, which is also one of the best lakes in Maine, in my opinion. There were also nine of us, which is a lot of people, but none of us felt crowded or cramped in this place. It was perfect. Thank you for having us, Betsy."

  • 5 Stars!!

    "This was my first year renting on Purple Road and boy was it a fantastic vacation! The house is so close to all the activities, which made it easy to get around with my 8 month old son. The owner was very responsive and I have to say wonderful to rent from! The house had plenty of room for my family and the outside had a nice deck, fire-pit, chairs and a grill. We are very much looking forward to renting again next year!!!"
