May 25th, 2015 – Priceless and unforgettable! Donna, Les, Bethany, Perry, and utterly captivating and adorable Margaret-Thanks you!! The accommodations, your hospitality, and friendliness and the sunset sail aboard the ALERT were all so appreciated and amazing. The only thing we want or need now is simply to just be stranded here!

September 23, 2014 – Wow! What an amazing place. You obviously care about your guests and have thought of everything. Irv especially loved the “place mat”. Thank you for a delightful “get-away”. We don’t ever want to leave.

Take care.

Irv, Macie & T

September 11, 2014 – Dear McNelly and Davis families – Wow, what a wonderful introduction to Bailey Island and Maine we’ve had. Thank you so much for your hospitality, Donna, Les, Bethany & Perry. Loved all the food tips, great conversations, and  stories aboard the Schooner Alert, an especially memorable sailing on a perfect day.
