We are proud to offer private homes which are clean, fully furnished (including linens & dishes) and in top condition. Each property requires a security deposit, typically $350, which is held in escrow (higher end properties often have a higher deposit requirement). Also, a 7% lodging tax is required by the State of Maine and is paid by tenant. The amounts listed in this brochure are for the rental fee only.

Most of our homes are NO Smoking and NO Pets properties. Please inquire as to which properties allow smoking and/or pets, if you have these needs. Rental terms go from Saturday to Saturday–check in is anytime after 3 p.m. and check out is by 10 a.m. unless otherwise noted in your lease.

The last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August fill first, so as soon as you can make your plans, we would advise you to do so. Our payment policy calls for one-half of the total due (rent +sales tax + security deposit) to be paid when you return the lease agreement (within 14 days of reservation). The second half is due 14 days prior to arrival. Upon receipt of your final payment, we will send directions, phone numbers, key instructions, etc. We can accept your personal check as well as Mastercard or Visa.
