We absolutely loved our visit to Maine and our stay at lavender by the sea! From the moment we walked in we felt like we were at our home away from home. The cottage was very well kept and clean! The overall feel was cozy and comfortable! It’s so nice that Susan left snacks for us which were great to take to the parks! The cottage is set up perfect and very roomy! Even in the winter the the views are breathtaking! I also absolutely cannot forget Gigi! What a joy having this sweet girl come visit in the mornings and explore the property with us. We highly recommend and if our travels bring us back to Maine we will be staying here again!

Above and beyond hospitality.
Hello Suzanne, Thank you so much for your hospitality. The house was very clean and has all essentials needed with well stocked kitchen. The bed was very comfortable, i had great night sleeping and waking up to the sound of the ocean outlets. Very close driving distance to Acadia National park every day and to lobster pound for breakfast. We would love to see you again next time. Mam

Feels like paradise!
We loved the property! This by far the best VRBO experience we have had. The host, Suzanne, goes above and beyond with special treats, beautiful flowers, drinks, and fun surprises. The lavender and other landscaping is gorgeous. The sunsets are something we will always remember. The cottage is great for relaxing with lots of separate spaces for privacy and for get togethers. We love dogs and fell in love with Gigi. She was so well behaved and sweet to be around. We can't say enough good about this memorable experience.

Serene Stay
Suzanne is a most lovely lady and gracious hostess. She went above and beyond to welcome us as her guests and to make us feel most comfortable. Her cottage on the Penobscot River is a ‘home away from home’. We had everything that we needed. Overall, our vacation here (10 days) was thoroughly enjoyed. We would love to come again.!

Beautiful ocean bay views
We really enjoyed our stay here. The views are outstanding, especially from the upstairs master bedroom balcony. The seperate carriage house arrangement was very unique to all the vaca homes we've rented over the years (a lot), and it really worked out very well for our college-aged daughters to be able to have their own sleeping quarters with living room and full bath away from (gross) mom and dad. Lol. Easy access to Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. The host was extremely nice and helpful with our needs. We will definitely stay here again and recommend this rental to friends and family.

Maine Maritime Academy - son's graduation
Words on this review will fall short of expressing the kindness and compassion and caring and hospitality of this lovely hostess. We have never felt so much at home as when we stayed in her rental. The quaint cottage , the waterfront view and the the attentions showered on us has set a very high bar. My son was graduating from Maine Maritime and Ms. Bessette arranged to have a delicious cake made in the school's colors and topped off the surprise arrangements with some balloons and decorative yellow and blue pin wheels. I thank her profusely! What a great memory! We will return!
