Stayed here back in June, and it was so lovely. Sarah and Dax are great hosts and give such nice hospitality. Their home is beautiful, and the backyard is spacious with room to sit and enjoy tea on the patio, or climb down onto the beach to take pictures. A short drive away to get to town and Acadia National Park as well.

We were having so much fun that we didn't spend *that* much time...See More

The space is newly updated and feels like home. The location is minutes...See More
