  • Peaceful, well-appointed, clean, perfectly located, and beautiful - just as described.


    We (family of four and dog) were comfortable and happy in our six-night stay at this wonderful cottage in the Waldo woods outside Belfast, our first sightseeing trip to Maine in decades. It was just as described and perfectly situated for multiple Maine adventures. We had just about everything we needed but clothes and groceries — it was the best appointed rental we’ve been in. The kind owners were immediately responsive when we had momentary trouble with the door lock and talked us through it until it was resolved. They informed us later when they were going to pop over to mow the lawn after a long rainy spell broke, and it was a pleasure to meet them as we set off for new sights. They even left a dog frisbee after meeting our lab! They were also generous and gracious about sharing information on sights nearby and were so kind. The towels and sheets, provided, were high quality. The appliances were new and it appears the house has been well and recently renovated. There were plenty of games and toys. They even had k cups and individually packaged snacks like cookies, breakfast bars, and biscotti in a basket for us. The piano could use a tuning, but who expects a piano in a rental at all, let alone a tuned one? The cottage was charming and peaceful, the stars on the clear nights were spectacular, and we loved the nightly concerts of bullfrogs in the pond and occasional owls calling to each other, as well as the unparalleled morning birdsong serenades (which did not wake us up, as this small house is well insulated). The AC worked well in the heat wave. We would rent this place again in an instant and do hope to return someday.

    We didn't spend a lot of time in the cabin, but it was a clean and comfy home base for our travels. Our 5 yr old loved the bunk beds and the toys (and the piano) and had fun finding the little birds and animal decorations throughout the cabin. The cabin is quiet and secluded, but just a short drive from Belfast, which is one of the most charming towns we saw in Maine.

    This was the most peaceful experience we’ve ever had renting a property. It’s close to Belfast if you need somewhere to eat and drink, but the cottage is so warm and inviting we just wanted to stay.
