  • Beautiful view


    Gorgeous house with outstanding views. Rooms are very small compared to pictures. Home is fully stocked, beds are Uber comfortable. Not for older folks or people with disabilities. Lots of stairs and trail to get to house on rocky ledge. No central air or heat, no fire pit. We were very comfortable and fully enjoyed Boothbay. Lots of delicious seafood and great shopping, museums and art galleries. Would highly recommend.

  • Breathtaking view


    The house is built in a perfect place. The photos of the view do not do it justice. We spent the majority of our time out on the deck enjoying the weather and the view. There is so much wildlife that you can view from the house, including seals and bald eagles. The house itself is well furnished and stocked. I travel frequently and book through VRBO the majority of the time and this house was better stocked and equipped than any house I have stayed in. It is also close to restaurants and the downtown area for daily excursions.I want to add that although the house lacks the modern amenities that most houses have including a HVAC, insulation, and updated bathrooms, staying in this house was wonderful! The weather was perfect so the rooms were cool to sleep in and the normal modern amenities were barely noticed in the "prairie house," as we termed it! :) You will not regret this house or the view and we highly recommend it. We hope to be back soon!

  • Wonderful home for a family vacation


    This home was beautifully charming and full of history. The view overlooking the water was even better than in the pictures. We had a great time staying with our extended family. Would definitely recommend to others!

  • Beautiful spot


    All 6 of the women in our group were relaxed and refreshed from our stay in this beautiful location. The house has plenty of room and loads of character. We watched osprey, eagles, seals and more from the deck and through the large windows. We appreciated the uniqueness of the home and the friendliness of the people we encountered on the way to the lovely beach. Hope to return!
