    Had a wonderful week in the castle. It is very children friendly with lots of games, DVDs and books. We even did the castle scavenger hunt. The children loved catching crabs on the beach. The host was amazing and spent an hour on the phone with me before our visit with suggestions on where to go and what to see during our visit. There was a brand new gas grill. The kitchen island was great for meals and games with room for everyone. The only problem we had was the spiral staircase up to the bedrooms. My mother is in her 80s and could not make it up the stairs so she had to sleep in the bed by the front door. Luckily there is a full bathroom on the main floor that she could use.

  • Great Family Time


    The rocky shoreline and private tidepools were amazing. The large kitchen bar was great for meals and family games. The castle was quirky and spectacular and the long house that is under construction makes us want to come back! We had a great time in Maine.

  • Fascinating in every nook!


    The owners put so much work into every detail of this place! Quality, charm, awesome wood and stone work! Perfect isolated location, yet not too far to get to civilization, Acadia, and our favorite-Schoodic point. The private little beach is an amazing spot to sit and admire the mighty ocean and think , read or write. Everything was so clean and well stocked, the owner was quick to respond to any questions. If not for the incredible beauty of Maine, we could've spent the entire time in this beautiful place!

  • Mold infested safety hazard


    This home was a disaster in the deep woods. We wanted to stay here with our small children. Not only is the place covered in mold but there's major safety and code violations throughout. There's a crib and beds up against an open loft with a huge deadly drop of a child climbs from the crib or furniture. There's a filthy shower with ice cold rust water. The place is freezing in early Sept. with no heat. The listing shows photos from when the home was likely listed for sale and is not current. I am putting this review to protect other families who may pay for this hone and end up in a hotel like we did. The beds are yellow, old, dirty mattresses with hairs. The mold is so bad that even the owner said to put a blanket on the furniture before attempting to sit on it. This should be considered a cabin in the woods and a step above camping in a tent. It should be maybe $50-$75 a night honestly understanding that the mold/health and safety violations are present. The home really needs repairs. Locks are broken on doors and stair cases are like a lighthouse which could trap you in a small room with tiny windows in case there was a fire. You'd have no way out. Families with kids should NOT rent this. I don't think anyone should rent this if you are concerned about breathing high levels of mold. You smell it the second the door opens. This place should be condemned or renovated majorly. The listing doesn't match up with what you're renting. Beware! I thought this would be a magical vacation and it seemed like a great idea until I arrived at a filthy cabin. There was old food in the fridge and open containers of ice cream, old dates on dressings in the fridge, moldy cheese... the beds were sickening. I wouldn't even sit on them. The beds couldn't even be donated to a homeless person. Please beware of consumer fraud and false advertising.

    Manager's Response:

    Thank you for your review. This owner has asked us to pass along the following response:

    "Thank you for your feedback. The 3-year-old refrigerator, which I had personally wiped down prior to your arrival, did contain some food. The cleaning crew who came through after our departure should have either tossed these or taken them home to use. The only thing I leave in the fridge besides the baking soda and water would be the spices in the freezer, for guests to use. They keep fresher longer that way, and we don't always have time to refill the jars in the spice rack during the turnovers.

    The pictures were taken 3-4 years ago, and so do not reflect the upgrades which have taken place since then, not the least of which is the gas log unit put in this Spring 2019. The house now has a working fireplace, a new entrance walkway, new ceiling wallboard, and recessed lighting scheme in the master bedroom, new hardwood maple flooring in all bedrooms, and a spacious, suspended deck, shaded by a tall maple tree, with a picnic table for eating meals, and just hanging out. Additionally, we've upgraded our WiFi service and will be installing an upgraded water filtration system later this month.

    The plan for the future is to continue upgrading and refining the property, taking great pains not to squeeze the life and the charm from this mighty castle. Some great suggestions have even come from guests, such as the possibility of an outdoor eating area (completed in Spring 2019) With our daughter having grown up here, and a new generation (now 13 month-old twins!) coming behind to discover it, I'm sure we will continue to find new ways to improve and enjoy it, which we look forward to sharing with you who wish to be enchanted by it."

    Best, the Evolve Team
