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!

A Great, Peaceful Spot

5 of 5
This was our third year at Waters Edge. We love this place and will continue to come back in the future. It is always neat, clean, and very well kept. The owners pay a lot of attention to detail and work hard to make sure that the house has everything that you need for a great time, regardless of the weather. Every year, they have something new that makes things even better. On our first weekend, we have a great cookout where family comes up and enjoys the property with us. The week following is 'quiet time', with lots of reading, puzzle making, and snoozing. The dock is great for kayaking and I even took a swim, this year. The lobster co-op down the road is great. This year we picked up a dozen lobsters and made a huge lobster stew. The area is great and everything is convenient (close, but far enough away). I don't think that rental property gets any better than this.
