My parents wanted to take our entire family on a vacation in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary, and they chose Maine...one of their favorite spots which nine of us had ever visited. 14 of us ranging in age from 1 - 70 stayed in this lovely home situated right at the end of Perkins Cove. Perfect location, beautiful house, nearby activities and restaurants. We lived walking to Breaking New Grounds for coffee and pastries, as well as wondering a little further down the road to enjoy a full breakfast at Cove Cafe. We enjoyed sailing with SilverLinings right out of Perkins Cove.
Ralph was great to work with before, during, and after our visit. He even rearranged the beds to best fit our family\'s needs.
We hosted our wedding here and I can\'t get over how amazing it was. We booked it on a snowy day in March and of course I wanted to see the house before renting. Ralph, the owner asked the color of our wedding and would plant flowers to match. I can\'t put into words how amazing the week was. The view from the master bedroom waterfront beautiful. There is nothing more peaceful then sitting in the back yard and listening to the fishing boats come in and out. Great host and great place.
The Island House was a great venue for our family\'s Thanksgiving celebration! The kitchen was well equiped for preparing Thanksgiving dinner for 12 people and the view from the property was well worth it. Ralph was a kind host and made sure all our needs were attended to before we arrived. I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a relaxing family gathering!
We had a wonderful week at The Island House. The home is warm and welcoming from the moment you step in the front door. It is well appointed and perfect for a large family or group of friends.
The living room was a wonderful respite, and with the cozy fireplace was the perfect place to end your day. It was especially nice to be able to enjoy the sunrise, with several decks to choose from. Bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable, kitchen is well appointed, and the dining room is a great place to enjoy breakfast and gather for dinner.
The listing was quite accurate and the home is very well maintained. The entire process, from beginning to end was a pleasure and Ralph was a delight to speak to. I would highly recommend this property for a week away.
The home is within walking distance to many restaurants and shop, but is located at the quiet end of Perkins Cove. I look forward to visiting again in the future.
