We Loved it Here

5 of 5
We could not have been happier with this home. The pristine grounds, the view from every window, the fabulous porch, and the warm hospitality of the owners made this a wonderful vacation for us. The house was very well maintained, in a great location, and the attential to detail was right on. The artfully placed antiques, the collection of books on the area, binoculars for creature watching (we took them on a whale watch), charcoal grill, fire pit, kayak, etc... The amenities were all there for us. We had perfect summer weather every day, and even got a full September moon on our last night.

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.
