Amazing stay on Somes Sound
My wife and I really enjoyed our time in the Hall Quarry neighborhood, with excellent views of Somes Sound, Norumbega and Sargeant Mtns., and a well-cared for home that was clean and inviting. Proximity to both sides of the island is ideal. Property Managers were very helpful every step of the way, and extremely thoughtful. This is an incredible location, with a lot of history as part of a company (or companies) town dating back to the mid-to-late 1800s. The house is small and comfortable, and from another era--with a beautiful soapstone kitchen sink and antique flourishes throughout. This is NOT for people who prefer the modern touch. Minor downsides that will not affect every renter the same way: It's not completely private, as there is a driveway that runs through the middle of the property of a full-time local resident. Also: first floor bathroom can be a challenging get-to in the middle of the night, as all bedrooms are on the 2nd floor. All this being said, we would rent here again, because of the great views and access to all hiking. Many thanks to the owner and property managers for all that you did to make our stay enjoyable!
