What a wonderful, wonderful week we had at Ferndale! Ree, the owner, was the best! She reached out to us with historical information on the home & the area, gave us great tips for places to dine, and was available to help. She had the house nicely labeled with helpful pointers. This home comes with the highest recommendation! Here are some comments from my girlfriends: Ferndale was a great getaway with spectacular water views. We enjoyed several visits from a bald eagle. The home was comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. We spent hours on the screened porch. The home is a short drive to many of the local scenic attractions. Ferndale is beautiful, from its sweet sunrises to stunning sunsets. Whether sitting inside this beautifully furnished house or out on the spacious three-sided porch you never want to leave. But if you do, there's plenty to see and do, whether you take a nature walk in the fern and moss clothed forest or drive to darling nearby towns like Bath and Boothbay. I could gush on and on. Talk about leaving your heart somewhere....I left mine at Ferndale. Please let third home know what a beautiful relaxing home we stayed in. The views of the bay were breathtaking views each morning. The home was clean and adequate bed linens in each bedroom. If you want a real getaway relaxing vacation this is the place but near enough to coastal towns and nice restaurants. Thank you, Third Home and Ree Gillette! ”
We had a fabulous week at this stunning home. The views of the water are from every room but our favorite was the gorgeous screened porch. It was open on three sides so the views and breezes were wonderful The home is furnished beautifully and comfortably. Everything necessary to prepare meals was available, but the Maine lobster available in August in many local spots with water views was hard to resist.. The owner of this property was available at any time in case we had questions. Ree, the owner, has a long and fascinating relationship with this part of Maine which she shared with us over ice tea on her deck overlooking the water just a short distance from the 3ed Home property. We hope to return in the future. Cecilia Kempton .”
