This listing was absolutely accurate, especially if you are familiar with this area of Maine. It is off the beaten path but close to plenty of attractions, which means you can avoid Route 1 summer traffic, or head directly into Wiscasset in minutes. We were in town for a family wedding, so most of our time in the house was spent sleeping. Lisa was out of town during our visit, so while we missed the baked goods other guests enjoyed, Lisa set us up very well, with clear instructions and an emergency contact. We would definitely consider staying here again.
My first experience on AirBnB could not have been better! Lisa is a very warm, friendly, and gracious Host. She was very thoughtful and accommodating to me throughout previous booking communication, even extending me an adjustment to the stay last minute. She made me feel very welcome, addressed any questions we had and pointed out the interesting facts about the house and area. I was touched by how she made sure we were comfortable before she left. It is obvious she loves this house and we did too. The home is late 1700s, so I loved the architecture throughout the house. The kitchen was great for preparing our meals. We wanted for nothing. Comfortable and remarkably cool because of the stone cellar, it was a nice and quiet weekend we enjoyed with the windows open and a wonderful breeze even though outside it was 85+ degrees. They sure knew how to make them back then! Right around the corner is a dam and down further is a nice antique store across the bridge we visited. This area is all 1700s, and from the other residences and buildings, you can tell was of some importance and wealth. The homes are very interesting to look at. The property has a nice walk down to the Sheepscot (URL HIDDEN) fact you can see the remnants of a stone jetty. One last thing, sitting outside and watching the incredible night sky is a gift you can only get staying at a place like this. If you want to quiet down and get re-calibrated, Lisa has the place. I am looking forward to a future visit and will definitely book again.
My family and I enjoyed staying at Lisa's home because it was quiet, spacious and gave us the rural Maine ambiance we were looking for without being too far a drive from neighboring towns. Lisa's house is old and charming with historic architectural details to appreciate including a wall mural, brick oven, period wall paneling and fireplaces. It worked well for our travels with-in Mid-Coast areas. We appreciated the large kitchen since we cooked a few meals. Step back in time at this rental and enjoy.
My time at Lisa's house was awesome. It was definitely a true maine experience. For a city girl, I was not fully prepared for the rural life, however I learned a lot. The accommodations inside were clean a roomy. My girlfriends and I had a blast and we loved the aces to the lake and the local store so close buy. Thanks again Lisa!
