The best way to explore the coast of Maine

August 10, 2023

Once again we wish to thank Nichole and her team for a wonderful stay on Deer Isle. As always, it was a positive experience. We have rented from Nicole for many years and we have never been disappointed. Nichole and team are very friendly and accommodating, and Nichole herself, stays in touch throughout the entire rental process. Our Cottage on Northwest Harbor was lovely and exactly what we expected. There were no surprises when we arrived. The cottage was extremely clean and the kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware. I even discovered some balsamic vinegar!! Every morning we enjoyed our coffee on either the deck seating or the chairs, perfectly placed on the lawn for viewing the seals that visited every morning. We highly recommend Nichole and her team from Maine Rentals and Real Estate. (And remember to reserve your kayaks and equipment with them, it’s the best way to explore the coast of Maine.) Thanks again. Paul and Pam
