The place for a perfect sister's week

  • 5 of 5

We were hoping for a place where the two of us could spend time talking, exploring, reading, making salads out of the excellent local produce, and just rocking on the porch with all the benefits of a splendid landscape. We got what we hoped. The cabin, appropriately rustic, makes you feel remote and leisurely, when in fact you're only miles away from groceries, museums, restaurants, hiking trails, and lots of other small towns each with big personality. The Sapps were fabulous hosts, highly responsive, generous with tips and suggestions and goodies from their gardens. I hope to be back soon.

Old-school Maine cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A great way to relax, turn off, and enjoy all that Down East Maine offers. A set of cabins that has been in the same family three generations that are well-maintained and with a beautiful view of an inlet. Plus a friendly yellow Lab! Couldn't ask for anything better, and the neighboring village of Castine has much to offer.

Quiet lake retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the little cottages all lined up on the edge of the property! We were in cottage six and had a great view of the field where most mornings we were greeted with deer meandering through. The path to the "lake" (a tidal area) was close by and we enjoyed walking down and surveying the tides. Although the other cottages were also rented, the property was quiet and we enjoyed the downtime we had in the simple and cozy cottage.
