A spacious and lovely located home with an excellent kitchen
We had a family of 6 adults and two children and a dog. All were well serviced by one of the more exceptional homes that we have stayed in. Lots of room, plenty of hot water with appliances all running well. The kitchen was one of the better kitchens we have used in a rental and as we do a lot of cooking is an important element for factoring our happiness. All the cookware was Cuisinart (!) and all seemed relatively new as well. Well done Paul, our host, who not only presented a terrific home but also had laid in a store of goodies, wine and beer as well. And good stuff too. Who does that? Two full baths with showers made it easy for everyone to relax after the day trips to various lovely towns that were nearby (we visited Castine- only minutes away, Blue Hill, where we shopped, had our fine meal at Arborvine, and Kayaked, was just 25 minutes, Stonington and Bar Harbor were each about an hour). Also a calm and quiet beach which was taken advantage of nearly everyday! Paul always responded quickly whenever I had a question and though we didn't encounter any issues it was nice knowing that he maintained contact. The backyard provided ample space for kids and dogs to run, play some baseball and badminton. The screened in porch was especially good for us for the breakfast and evening meals. Great location, great kitchen and very happy memories.
