    Searsport vacation

    We thoroughly enjoyed this house. It was much bigger than we expected, loaded with nice extras and so comfortable for our family reunion in Maine. We hired a local photographer to take family pics in the beautiful yard. Thank you, Carolyn. We loved it!

      A Nostalgic Getaway

      I grew up in a small village in the remote hinterlands of the St. Lawrence River Valley in northern New York. Many of my paternal antecedents were French Canadien dairy farmers. This Searsport farm felt like a trip back to the bygone days of my youthful past, a visit to home. The building and property were delightful, the kitchen was commodious, the beds fine, the decor very homey and interesting. Although we ended up with six adults and one two-year old child, there was room to accommodate several more. Even with 90-degree days the nights were cool enough to sleep well. I mention the following to advise Carolyn for future guests. The ground fault outlet to the right of the sink has seen better days and popped off. Rather than play with circuit breakers in the cellar we plugged the coffee pot in elsewhere. And the split A/C unit was not working until someone came and fixed it. I mention this not in complaint, these items were too minor for worry or concern, but merely as information for your maintenance people. We have a son in Portland and relatives on Branch Lake near Ellsworth so hope to return to this Searsport farm again. I was a licensed Professional Engineer but in retirement give poetry tours and lectures at the farm/estate of Edna St. Vincent Millay in Austerlitz, New York. So we have an abiding interest in the Camden/Belfast area and would definitely return to this Searsport farm and recommend it to others. It's not the same old type of place one sees everywhere.

          Perfect house for a Brady Bunch Vacation

          Clean, well kept up, looks like pictures, roomy 2 bathroom, great assistance from the owner if an issue arose and she was very prompt in getting back to me. Definitely worth the investment and I will be keeping it in mind of future events.
