The perfect choice
September 7, 2015
We stayed the first week of August. Lisa was helpful with the details before we even arrived, offering suggestions for kayak rental / delivery. The home overlooked Cape Jellison with incredible views at sunrise. A short walk from the deck brings you to the beach with varying levels of water depending on the tide. My son enjoyed digging for clams as the tide went out. The home was very clean, roomy and the ocean breeze coming in the many windows was relaxing. The home was well appointed with all necessities for a home away from home. The bedrooms were spacious and bathrooms meticulously clean with new linens. I found the washer and dryer helpful as we were able to pack less. The deck and deck furniture were phenomenal and we enjoyed meals overlooking the cape. This was our first trip to Maine and I found the location perfect as it allowed for day trips to Bar Harbor, Acadia, Fort Knox and other seaside points of interest within a 60 minute or less drive, then to return to all of the comforts of home. Located on the Cape, Fort Point State Park is just down the road complete with lighthouse and Sandy Beach - a few miles away - is a prime location to spend the day on the water. We all agreed we had the BEST fried clams at Just Barbs restaurant nearby. I'd recommend you bring sunscreen, bug spray & water shoes. Do some research into the area to narrow down your activities, as there's just so much to do for all types - families, couples or groups of friends. We can't wait to return to Lisa's beautiful home as it was 'the perfect choice' at an affordable price.
