I'm a graduate student at UMaine who needed a place Downeast to stay for a month while I was doing an experiment in Jonesboro and managed to find the beautiful Prowhouse, and I'm very glad I did! There was absolutely nothing negative about my experience and Rich was probably the most attentive host I've ever encountered. Yes, cell service can be spotty way down on the peninsula but wifi and a landline were available to make contact with the outside world so it was not an issue.
The master bedroom was exceedingly comfortable and the views in the morning with the sunrise were a unique experience. I had a lot of fun going for runs on the hilly roads and Machias is only 15 minutes away if more civilization was needed. The back deck facing the ocean was an awesome place to stretch after runs and even do some yoga moves (I bet in the summertime early morning it'd be even more amazing). A wonderful balance between still being connected to the world through technology (and modern architecture) and being surrounded by nature (no neighbors within sight) and just listen to the sounds of the ocean.
Rich was available via email or phone at all times, although the property requires little explanation. The kitchen is fully stocked and I never once found myself wanting for anything. Hannaford is 15 minutes away in Machias, so probably best to stock up on food on the way in.
I would (and will!) absolutely recommend this property to friends and family looking for a Downeast vacation spot!
