JULY 2017 REVIEW: "When planning a family vacation, idealistic visions often precede your arrival: stunning silent mornings with a cup of coffee and a picture-perfect view; bald eagles diving for fish in pristine water; easy outings to explore wild woods and rugged coastlines; friendly shop keepers selling unique treasures to take home; lazy afternoons playing in the yard with the family while music streams through the open windows; time to read, to cook, to do a puzzle, to nap; laughing through a game of trivial pursuit after a bonfire of marshmallows and guitar…. At Featherbed Island, all these fantasies and more came true. This was a perfect vacation for our family. Maria’s magical spot of land is extraordinary — it is in a perfect location if you want to venture down the road and find an adventure, yet, the peacefulness and beauty of the property will make leaving for the day difficult! We stayed for 12 nights and wished we had it 12 more. I can still smell that perfect blueberry pie baking in the oven, while the perfume of the forest and sea mingle in the breeze. We HIGHLY recommend booking this magical Maine getaway!" **************************************************** JULY/AUGUST - RENTALS ARE GENERALLY WEEKLY FROM SUNDAY TO SUNDAY Presented by Wicked Awesome Maine Vacation own home. -A beautiful and unique WATERFRONT home on the mainland in coastal Maine with spectacular views and, yes, even your own PRIVATE ISLAND just offshore!
