Family Vacation in Castine, Maine
My family and I enjoyed our time in Castine, it is a beautiful peaceful town with lots of history. The house had all the amenities needed for a family of 10. Dave was very responsive to any questions we had before the trip. We look forward to returning soon!

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful location in charming Maine town
Our family of 8 - 6 adults - one 17 year old and one almost a year old grandson enjoyed a week long stay in this property in mid-July. The property was clean and had appropriate sanitizing sprays and liquids available. The location is great - top of the hill with a short very pleasant walk down Main Street into Castine. Golf course literally across the street and our group enjoyed a round of golf during our stay. Castine is a quiet town that is home to the Maine Maritime Academy so it has a few amenities that one might not find in more remote towns in Maine which means it has some spots for a drink and some good restaurants, breakfast spots and convenience stores. Not a small one store town but not anywhere near a bar every other building town either. Perfect to enjoy the coastal region with some amenities available. Historic lighthouse is a short walk from town and Back Bay is a great place to schedule a traditional Maine lobster/clambake on the shore as we did one evening - Markel's is the place to contact if you are looking for this experience - great food and great people. A lot of historic homes that are well maintained take you back in time and help you slow down and unwind. COVID-19 did provide some limits and closures but even with the required precautions, it was very relaxing. The house is open, has a well appointed kitchen and a fantastic deck with side lawn that we enjoyed every night with cookouts and a nice glass of wine as we sat and talked as a family. The owners were very responsive and took care of any minor issues one might find in a historical home. The weather was a bit warmer than usual but not oppressive - fans in the upstairs rooms are adequate as even on hot days the Maine evenings are cool. You are an easy drive to the big attractions like Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor but also close to some very charming villages. We rented a 22 foot Boston Whaler out of the marina in South Brooksville and toured the coast and stopped at a number of small islands - highly recommend this as a day adventure - bring a cooler with drinks and lunch and really see the Maine Coast - boats have GPS with nautical charts so navigation is quite easy. We have been fortunate to stay at VRBO properties around the world and we would visit this one again.
