A SUPER time was had by all!

I just wanted to thank you again for being so accommodating and helping us to secure this rental. It was a pleasure working with your rental agency. We had a GREAT time and really enjoyed staying in "The Big House". We did see seals almost every day and a loon with babies. Also, our granddaughters really enjoyed wading in the low tide and found crabs, starfish and a couple of seahorses. They had a lot of fun visiting Acadia National Park and did quite a bit of hiking. A SUPER time was had by all! With sincere thanks. - (Jul 2019)

It was wonderful to watch the waves and the birds, and we even saw a seal!

This beautiful house had plenty of room and was located right by the water. It was wonderful to watch the waves and the birds, and we even saw a seal! The kitchen had all the amenities. The living room had comfy couches, and the beds were the right level of firmness. We were half a mile from a very nice lobster pound, when we didn't feel like cooking. Not far from hiking trails. We messed up in not realizing there were two trash bins, one for regular trash (hidden in the cabinets) and one for recycling (end of the counter, the one with the green bag). The only drawback was having to schedule showers so everyone had hot water, which was not unexpected for 5 people. I would love to stay here again. - (Jul 2019 - HomeAway)

Great Family Getaway

We love the isolation and yet the nearness to Acadia National Park. Four bedrooms allow plenty of room for adult family of six. Kitchen set up is perfect for cooking, ample kitchen utensils available. Love the dining area set up overlooking the water. Very peaceful with birdwatching and loon watching. No motor boats on the water, we were able to order kayak's, and had them in the yard for easy access. A very nice plus, a washer and dryer available for use. Allowed our family to have a very relaxing getaway.

Wow! Best rental I have ever had

Home was incredible.! Fantastic location, excellent traffic pattern affording privacy for sleeping and excellent common areas. Kitchen was to die for. Well stocked with utensils, dishes and beverage glassware. Grill was excellent and clean. The deck facing the ocean was perfect..only minor suggestion would be to mark mailbox at entry road more clearly.
