Spacious, comfy and peaceful stay in Maine.

5 of 5
We stayed here with our 2 children (4 and 3) from England for a week and absolutely loved it. The property has lots of space and the beds are very comfy. It had everything we needed in it. The property itself is near the town of Wiscassett which is a lovely little place. Although near Wiscassett town, this property is in a rural area surrounded by trees and overlooking a river. It is totally peaceful and you aren't overlooked by neighbours. There is lots of garden space and some wildlife - we saw chipmunks, red squirrels and even had a deer in the garden one morning! Carol was wonderful....very helpful with any questions we had and responds very quickly. Thank you for a great holiday and we will be back!
