Beautiful Location
There were only two of us so we did not utilize the place for it’s full potential but the home and its surroundings were beautiful. The master bedroom had a fantastic view of the river and marshes and we were able to see quite a bit of wildlife. The kitchen wasn’t as well stocked with certain staples that would have been helpful (did not think to buy olive oil or pizza pan from the store) but there were plenty of serving dishes to use. The upstairs bedrooms did not have a great view or any view at all but would be comfortable and safe for kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have loved to stay a few more days. Close to Bath and Popham beach which were both great places to go and only 1-3 hour drives away from many other tourist locations (Freeport, Bar Harbor, etc). We made a lot of day trips and were able to come back to a beautiful and clean home. We would choose to stay here again and hope to return soon!

Remote and Beautiful
The house is lovely and the setting serene. We didn't get to utilize the screened in porch due to very cool weather, which was unfortunate since it was really nice and one of the reasons we chose this rental. I highly recommend Ferndale to other travelers. Though it is remote, it is close to surrounding areas, shopping, restaurants, beaches, etc.
The only cons were a landscape company showed up early one morning without warning and started mowing and leaf blowing around the perimeter of the house. We also had spotty internet and the smart tv didn't work the majority of the time. We contacted TurnKey and while their representatives were professional and polite, dealing with different intermediaries in 3 other states other than one in the location we were staying, was rather frustrating. At one point they tried to spring a dishwasher repairman appointment on us while we had no idea the dishwasher was even broken. So, communication needs improving. But otherwise, besides the few hiccups, we had a great stay at a wonderful rental.

Lovely water front property
Ferndale is a beautiful and extremely well appointed home. The deck and screened in porch were very nice. Home was very clean and well maintained.
The owners thought about everything a guest could want or need and provided it- including binoculars to watch the seals cavort in the water.

Ferndale - A Wonderful Retreat
What an amazing place to stay - my family and I love coming to Maine and now we love staying at Ferndale. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough to get to any city in Maine relatively quickly!
The screened in patio and outside deck was so relaxing and great for morning coffee and enjoying boats and animals coming by. We loved our experience here and will definitely come back!!!

Peaceful and beautiful
The property is spectacular! Located at the end of a long road, the home has a beautiful view of the river. The house itself is roomy with plenty of cozy places to sit. We couldn't have enjoyed it more!

Gorgeous, relaxing, idyllic
Zero complaints. The bald eagle flying up and down the river all day long just added to the beauty.

Wonderful vacation!
What a perfectly relaxing location! The house was very comfortable and the perfect home away from home. We had a small glitch at the beginning-a lack of communication between the owner and TurnKey, resulting in the house not being cleaned prior to our arrival. Dan from TurnKey immediately corrected the oversight and made satisfied customers of us! We explored the property, spent time in Bath, Boothbay, and Bar Harbor. We would highly recommend this property, as well as TurnKey.

Beautiful Home
The house was beautifully decorated! The view was absolutely incredible and there was such a peaceful feel to the entire area that it was hard to leave! On our first evening, we were sitting on the porch and saw a huge bald eagle perched on a nearby tree. The next morning, we saw several deer grazing in the grass by the water. Would definitely recommend this vacation spot!

Peaceful and Relaxing Getaway
My family had a great stay at Ferndale. The location is very quiet and private, views are wonderful and the house itself is very nicely done. The screened in porch was a perfect spot for my young kids (3 and 5) to hang out. The kitchen was well stocked and we used the grill several times during our stay. My family of 4 stayed there with an Aunt and Uncle. The master suite gave the Aunt and Uncle privacy from the rest of us. The location is great for exploring the mid-coast area (Popham and Reid State parks, Bath and Brunswick).

Amazing River House
The house is quaint and picturesque, right by the Kennebec River with amazing views up and down river. An excellent place to relax and unwind. Sitting in the morning with our coffee on the deck we could watch the eagle land just across the marsh. Seals floated lazily down river. We took our canoes and were able to launch them at high tide in the little marsh pond just in front of the house and wind our way out through the hidden canal to the big Kennebec River. It is a magical, peaceful place, far from the hustle and bustle but close enough to drive down to Popham Beach or into Bath. We loved seeing all the wildlife just driving down the country road to get to the house. We highly recommend Ferndale.

Peaceful, comfortable house on the historic Kennebec River
Great stay in this wonderfully situated house on the banks of the Kennebec River. The house is light and warm with brand new windows, making views to the river and meadows spectacular. The living area is large and open with a wood stove, deck for outside living, wonderfully spacious bedrooms are spread throughout the first and second floors. Most of all the house and surrounding land are private and quiet. Nature abounds. A great getaway, wonderful for birdwatching, vacationing, relaxing. Great beaches and town of Bath are easily accessible.

Wonderful cozy house, with beautiful views
We had so much fun at Ferndale ringing in 2017! I went with my wife and our dog Maddie, as well as two other couples and we had such a nice time, enjoying the amazing views of the river. Such a warm and cozy place to hang out with friends and family and curl up with a good book. We cooked in the well-appointed kitchen and enjoyed exploring the nearby beaches (Hermit Island) and historic downtown Bath. Would love to visit again!
