“Five lifetime friends recently stayed at Kate’s home to celebrate our 60th birthdays. The house is huge! Each of us had a lovely room, two of the rooms are like separate apartments! The ocean view is everywhere.”
“The property has great access to the beach, including a sand beach that is close by. The yard is large and provides a good place for children to play. The location is great for us providing easy access to Camden, Rockland, Rockport, and Belfast. Bar Harbor and Acadia are also not that far. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and silverware. We liked the property so much that we have rented it for two weeks next year.”
