If you are looking for a beautiful, well-kept, dog-friendly rental off the beaten path in coastal Maine, look no further - you will love it here! Sue was a very gracious host, responding promptly to all communications, and providing us with helpful info about the house and the area in the weeks leading up to our stay. We arrived to find the house spotlessly clean, and well-stocked with all the essentials - including bowls, a tennis ball, and treat jar for our pup! We loved the quiet solitude of the place, and enjoyed daily walks on the beach with the most gorgeous sunsets over the water. Soaking in the big clawfoot tub after a day of walking the trails in the area was pretty great too. It was all so relaxing, we didn't want to leave - Shadow is already missing those walks on the beach. We would book again in a heartbeat.
We chose the Bayfront Farmhouse for its location equal distance between things we wanted to see in Maine, its seclusion, closeness to the bay and potential to experience wildlife. It was a good choice. To fully appreciate the solitude you may want to do a Google Maps Satelite View recon of the property. It is off the beaten path and away from the crowds. We were able to do comfortable day trips to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Coastal Light Houses and Campobello Island Canada. The property is everything it appears to be the the photos. It is old but well kept and clean. The washer/dryer came in very handy on our extended tour of New England. The owner Elizabeth was very helpful before and during and after our stay. The first night we arrived the temperature was forecast to drop to 40 degrees which is too cold for us Texans so when we found the downstairs furnace not working we were concerned. Elizabeth was very responsive helping us try to trouble shoot the problem by text and the following morning she had her local repairman out to get it going. The upstairs furnace was working so we had no problem sleeping. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights stay and would choose this property again.
