Jeanne and Art have been well accommodating and thoughtful throughout the stay. The camp fire they meticulously prepared and maintained was one of the highlights of our trip. They also offered us some tips on the local restaurants, a fishing rod and pitchfork to dig out some worms, and a quick tour around their property. Our dogs played well with their dogs and ran freely around their property day and night. Sun shire over their pond is one of the most beautiful things I ever seen in this trip. It is this kind of experience and hosts like Jeanne and Art that let us keep choosing Airbnb over hotels.

This place is peaceful and comfortable. The bonus is it is walking distance from a local food Co-op and Ralph's Cafe.

Jeanne and Art were the best hosts ever! They are so familiar with the entire state of Maine and were able to answer all questions about destinations and provided excellent recommendations. My sister and I especially enjoyed day trips to Downeast and the mid Coastal towns. The Coastal Maine botanical garden and Thuya gardens were favorites of ours. We felt right at home immediately with our two new friends. We look forward to returning! P. S. Don't miss their cozy breakfast! It is scrumptious!

Thanks to Jeanne and Art, it was a wonderful experience staying at their beautiful house. They both were extremely helpful and hospitable. Their house was very clean with an awesome soothing ambience...The house has very thoughtful decor with every detail kept into mind to make the stay comfortable. They also were extremely courteous serving us an awesome breakfast ( local blueberry pancakes and yogurt was just amazing). They gave our daughter toys to play and the best part was the Frozen Castle which they specially got for our daughter to play... so nice and thoughtful of them. Above all the icing on the cake was the experience of the hot tub on our last day of stay ... it was mesmerising enjoying the tub in the middle of nature. Overall one of the best Airbnb experience and highly recommended. We will like to visit again. Places to visit near by Belfast harbour walk, Acadia national park and Bar harbour area our 1.5 hrs drive and don't miss the amazing views from Camden Hill state park and a meal at the Waterfront restaurant at Camden Harbour ( recommend by Jeanne and Art)

Great apartment in a cozy town with lots to do nearby. We stayed as a family of 6- parents, 2 kids, 2 grandparents, and our dog! Jeanne and Art were so friendly, welcoming, and helpful with suggestions. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast of fresh fruits, free range eggs and Maine blueberry pancakes! You must stop by Ralph's cafe just around the corner, there's also a U-pick blueberry farm nearby, a local theater company, a food co-op and a gas station all in walking distance! On property my kids loved exploring the pond and marsh stream, catching frogs (and releasing). there's beautifully tended gardens, a firepit, hot tub and hammock, perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring midcoast! We also went into Camden, took a chartered sail on the Owl, explored Belfast (and its city park- with a great swimming pool, kids playground and rocky beach!). Went down to Rockland and Rockport to stroll the downtown- must go to Coastal Childrens Museum in Rockport if you have kids- toddler to young elementary school- very fun, only $20 for 4 tickets, right on the water. One day drove up to Acadia Natl Park which was Stunning (very busy too, as it was a beautiful day!) We loved our stay and would recommend it highly to anyone interested in Camden, Belfast, Acadia or other Midcoast locations, it is a great place in Maine and one we look forward to exploring more in the future!
