Very sweet house on a beautiful island. Not elegant but comfortable.

Private with a big yard, this is a great location. Our city kids spent all day running around the yard, picking blackberries, and begging to go back to the quarry -- which is just a short walk/drive away. The house itself is stocked with great books, lovely paintings, and puzzles to help you enjoy the time at home when you're not exploring the island. Things to know about the house: one of the bedrooms is connected to the other and there is no door in between... so we just hung a curtain/sheet so our kids wouldn't be up all night talking to each other! It's a small house but feels much more spacious than it is -- great outdoor shower. The plumbing is a bit old -- but that's not a reason to not come... just part of living in an old house on an island. Wifi and cell service are spotty on the island -- but isn't that the point? We were able to enjoy the island so much more. Other things we enjoyed: Farmer's market on Sat am, fresh wild blueberry pie at Downstreet Market, and many hikes -- especially Lane Island Reserve. Recommendations: Best to bring some of your fresh veggies and meats from the mainland if you plan on cooking. The local grocery store has a decent selection, but fresh options (other than lobster!) are best bought in Rockland. Rachel was a great host -- so easy to be in touch with and very responsive.

This is an absolutely charming place--a true Maine experience! The house is much bigger than it looks (we were five and fit comfortably), and beautifully decorated. The setting is lovely--at the end of a lane with wildflowers growing everywhere--and close to town (about 1.5 miles). We spent most afternoons swimming at the quarry, which you can easily walk to. This was our first trip to Vinalhaven, and we will definitely be back. Thanks, Rachel for a wonderful stay.

Very quiet, rustic farmhouse. We saw deer from the kitchen as we were eating walking across the yard. I loved the quietness as you are on the end of a drive. Away from everything!

Rachel's house was just what my family was looking for in a vacation spot. We know we adore the island, as we've visited many times, but my husband and I were looking for a house in a private setting where we and our two boys could relax--a comfortable home base for our outdoor adventures. Rachel's house exceeded all of our expectations. The adorable house, though on the smaller side, felt spacious inside and was lovingly decorated. I loved that it was a very quick drive or bike ride to town (which we frequented for ice cream - yum!), but that it was also in a very quiet spot where our kids could run around and play. We enjoyed lunch on the picnic table and bird watching in the yard. We watched two blue jays and a cardinal fly around together for a long while one afternoon! The quarry is just a few minutes away, which made popping out for a swim a breeze. The outdoor shower at the house was by far my personal favorite -- it just doesn't get any better than showering in the sunshine surrounded by green while the birds sing. We can't wait to plan our next trip!

Rachel's home is a dream. Tucked away, but also easily driveable to the Main Street and only a short walk to beautiful quarry. The home was really comfortable, my boyfriend and I would spend hours each day sitting outside and playing with our dog. Rachel also gave us tons of great advice and resources for our stay. We will definitely be back!
