Perfect vacation for our family

  • 5 of 5

We're a family of 4 with two teenagers who like to be on the water, kayak, hike, cook, eat out, explore, shop and stay at homes with all the amenities for an enjoyable stay. This house fit all our needs - clean, new, large, on the water and only a short drive to restaurants and shopping. The owners take pride in their property and it shows. We hope to return next year!

Great house with lovely water views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation (all adults) in this house. The living space is large and comfortable with a great kitchen for preparing family meals. We enjoyed the easy dock access to the water with kayaks and also rented paddle boards. Everyone felt relaxed and 'at home' during our stay.

Dream Vacation!

From the moment we arrived, we were blown away! The home is beautiful, the setting and the ambiance was amazingly warm and welcoming! We are going back again this year! The location is fantastic, close to all that you need. We enjoyed kayaking, hiking and getting fresh lobsters every day!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Property was as advertised, clean, homey and tastefully appointed. Perfect for our family of 5 adults and a toddler. Dealing with the owner and caretaker was efficient and easy. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and would consider returning in the future. Quiet and peaceful overlooking the water but not far from shopping for necessities.

Happy Camper

  • 5 of 5

What a magnificent surprise to find such a gorgeous, and well-appointed home available for our family to rent.

The setting on a quiet cove, with a deep-water dock and float, made for a great launch for kayaks and for swimming. We loved the large kitchen overlooking the water and family room fireplace. Kitchen and baths were well stocked. A beautiful back entry welcomed us each time we returned. The full basement with ping-pong table is perfect on a rainy day. Brunswick is nearby for theater and restaurants, and the world's best lobster rolls are 5 minutes away at Gurnet's. Simply a perfect Maine holiday--in a spectacular home. We're grateful to have experienced this special getaway! And, the owners and property caretaker are marvelous people! Enjoy! LL
