Reviews for this vacation home rental in Addison, Maine
Maine vacation home
September 1, 2014
This was a old farmhouse that was kept very clean and organized. The house is overlooking the bay with a huge sandy beach. Went kayaking. The scenery was breathtaking. It took about an hour to get to Acadia Park. Very serene.

This property is exactly as described. We arrived on the Tuesday and up until and including Friday the 4th we were enjoying our stay and the beach was beautiful. Our ONLY complaint at that point was the furniture,which most of it is a little old and needs replacing and was a bit uncomfortable at times. But beyond that, we were happy. Then Saturday morning rolled in and so did Hurricane Arthur. We woke up to no power. Annoying but no big deal. We lived in the South for 12 years and endured many hurricanes. Lived in the North for 9 years and endured ice storms that knocked out power for days. We were prepared for that. What we were not prepared for was the complete lack of ANYTHING in this house. A complete electric house with no propane camping stove or any means to cook. As we were coming to terms with that we realized we had NO water. A well system generated by power and NO emergency back up in place. So no water. Then a huge tree fell across the driveway landing at an angle on the fence. A kindly neighbor cut the branches but he told us the fence would not hold much longer and with out water if we were going to leave he suggested we do so immediately. So we had to pack up in 30 minutes, scrape our cars under this huge tree and drive during this now tropical storm out of Addison. The Realtor for the owners said in a text how sorry she was and she would negotiate with the owners for a "rate adjustement" due to the fact that we were forced to evacuate. However, that did not happen. The most they offered was to go back up for the 3 nights we lost. When I explained it was a 6 1/2 hour drive and too far for 3 nights they informed me that they expected us to add it to next year, for us to book and pay for more nights and they would tack on 3 nights free. That may seem like a great solution for them, we get to spend more money to make up for loss of days, but for us it felt like a slap in the face. Please note, I am not in anyway blaming them for the hurricane or even the loss of power. But to rent a house on the east coast and have NO back up for a completely electric house and no way for anyone to stay if it loses power and then expect us to go back was stunning to say the least. I just feel if you rent this house, be prepared for anything because the owners have done nothing to prepare for you! When we turned down their offer and explained why, they never emailed again, it felt as if they were happy to be rid of us. Very disappointing
