We stayed here for 3 nights, and wish we could have stayed longer. Everything about the cottage was terrific: extremely clean, comfortable, charming, with lots of helpful advice and information about the area. The entire property is exquisite, right on Eggemoggin Reach. It feels more remote than it is, only a few minutes drive to several places. I was with...

Our time there was not long enough.This was a special occasion. It was our 40th wedding anniversary. The staff was awesome helping us with anything we needed. They gave us ideas of sites to visit.

It was lovely to have you here. Yes, flying into Bangor is an easier way to do it. That's what I do when I travel. But, plan for glitches in making connections. I know you will do that. See you next fall...or, sooner. Sally

Thanks for taking your time to make a comment. Yes, there are fabulous locales nearby. We are fairly centrally located and not far from Stonington, Castine, Brooklin, Blue Hill and even Bar Harbor (a little over an hour drive in summer). Sally

Our family of 6 (4 adults, 2 toddlers) spent 2 nights at Sally's property in July and enjoyed our time being close to nature, yet not so far from civilization. We stayed at the Lone Pine cottage that afforded a wonderful view of the bay, and was apparently Sally's honeymoon cottage. The cottage is quaint with lots of character, but...

Thank-you for taking your time to make a comment. It is important that we hear from everyone. While we don't stock food items in cottages or our hostel we would be very happy to gather a supply for a guest who is in need and makes a request. We once obtained "clotted cream" for a guest...and, that was something...well, we...

Oakland House Open mic night. Locals and vacationers have a chance to share their musical talents. Held in a old school barn this is a very cool show case of talent. This isn't a karaoke event. Very artistic and talented people sharing with others. Gotta give it a try. Not a boozer event.
