The Riverhouse was the perfect cottage for our first trip to Maine. It gave us the country cottage feel while being close enough to the grocery, restaurants and things to do. Our host, Dan, was absolutely amazing!! He contacted us several times to make sure we had the correct directions to the cottage and to make us aware about changes in the weather. Due to travel delays, we were VERY late arriving but he had the light on for us. He met me the next morning to go over any questions we had and to share with us the history of the area and the house. Dan is a true "inn keeper" sharing his love of the area, the history and making sure his guests have a memorable vacation.

We really enjoyed our stay in this rental. Dan responds quickly to questions and is pleasant to work with. Everything you need is at this rental: the kitchen is fully stocked, there's a room AC on the 1st floor and large fans on the 2nd floor, and the linens and towels are provided. It's a 45 min. drive to Acadia, and there are many quaint harbor towns in driving distance.

This was the perfect place! The house was beautiful and right on the water with a private beach just down a walking path! It's about 45 minutes from all the main attractions which was perfect for us because we didn't want in the hussle and bussle, we wanted that relaxing and true vacation feeling which is what you will get when you stay here. Dan was pneoumonial and was there to welcome us when we arrived to ensure we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back and will work with Dan!!

The property was was quiet and very clean and the owner met with us to see if there was anything that we needed. He lives only 2 doors down from this cottage. I would highly recommend this cottage. This place had everything we needed. Ty Mr. Brooks.

It has been our STR experience that sites that are individually owned and locally managed provide the most enjoyable stays. Dan Brooks is the perfect example. The Riverhouse is everything it is represented to be: well-located for exploration of the region, delightfully and thoughtfully furnished, and, in a word, charming. Dan is an involved veteran host who, from prior to arrival to departure, is there to ensure that your visit is completely what you anticipate and more. His experience and pride in his native area are boundless and Dan shares his knowledge joyfully. The title says it all: Perfect Home, Perfect Host.

Small, quaint home, but a good central location for all your day adventures. Was perfect for a sisters get away. Would recommend for an adult couple, but not for a family with small children. Owner was friendly and awesome! Would stay again.

The house had a nice view of the river and we were able to walk down to it. Dan was wonderful host and enjoyed sharing information. The refrigerator and oven were not very clean and the table on the deck was not usable. The house is close to a busy road. The new grill was awesome! We enjoyed our stay!

We stayed at the River House last week, and had perfect weather for our first trip to Maine. The house is centrally located for near by attentions. It was a 45 minute drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Fort Knox is close by. Dan met us shortly after we arrived and gave us a run down on the house and surrounding area, that was very helpful to us. We recommend this rental, and will be returning again. Thank you Dan !
