    Wonderful Rental

    What a great house!!! We have rented several homes across the country but none of them have felt so cozy and inviting. This is a special home that we all enjoyed. I can’t think of anything that this house is missing. Thanks for being pet friendly. We hope to visit again someday.

    The Perfect Rental for Us

    I was among of group of four couples that rented the Capt. Lawrence E. Johnson House in early autumn and I am pleased to report that everyone was happy with the place. The house is large enough to find a quiet and comfortable area for some solitude, and yet it’s wide open enough to comfortably accommodate a gathering of up to twelve. There is a large, well supplied gourmet kitchen, a large dining area and a several different gathering areas. The photos don’t do justice to the size of this place! The four upstairs bedrooms were sizable and very comfortable, and each has its own private bathroom. The location is remote enough to assure a peaceful stay, yet it’s close enough to dramatic sightseeing, good shipping and fine dining to satisfy our groups varied wants and needs. This place is a winner!

    Bailey Island Designer Rental

    This is a wonderfully designed, even magical Bailey Island home. I was initially taken aback by the varied and “full” interior then realized that it created a coziness and familiarity that put me quickly at ease. The experience was not unlike visiting an island family that had been there for years. I went back to the Maine Home+Design article about this house and was reminded of the firehouse antiques, books from family collections, and genuine effort to make this new home feel as it had evolved over generations. Bravo to the owner’s accomplishment of this goal. Most of the night was spent in the study, perusing the amazing collection of old books, with the gas fireplace effectively creating a warm and cozy corner. The views of sunrise and the ring of blue water that spans nearly 300 degrees were an awe inspiring way to start the day. I felt blessed to be in this place.
