We rented one of the self catering cottages. Although there were warning signs when we booked, no visitors after 9, we had explained that relatives might drop by during the day for a coffee or to meet up for a trip. Our stay was spoiled on day one when confronted by proprieter's passive / aggressive attitude when said brother in law duly arrived mid-afternoon to visit. We thought it was unfriendly, heavy handed, paranoid and spoilt the start of our holiday. As a consequence we spent very little time at the property during the rest of the week.
So, a rather expensive way to get 3 bedrooms for a week ($1700). The property was small, reasonably appointed and clean but was close to the 2 other properties and the B&B. It had the feel of a let in someone's back yard. Overall, in this lovely part of Maine, there will certainly be better value and more relaxed and welcoming options available so look around.
