"This was a triple R vacation, Rest, Relaxation, Rejuvenation, and now we are headed home with memories of your beautiful place on the hill overlooking the delightful boats and the sea we love so much.

"Just wanted to say again that we had a truly wonderful time with you in June!
I wish I was still there! Those sheets were just divine!"
(Guests from California, the Brackett, 2007)
"We like the Pemaquid area and its sense of simplicity reminding all who come here that it's the way life ought to be...delicious seafood, beautiful vistas, friendly people and the feeling of serenity that The Moorings makes possible. Thanks for a wonderfully delightful two weeks!" (Guests at the Poolside, 2007)
"We loved our stay at The Moorings. Tony and Sally warmly welcomed us and we immediately felt like special guests. The Brackett apartment had all the amenities of home, a very comfortable bed, cozy sitting area and deck. The spectacular views of New Harbor never ceased to hold our attention! When we return home and reality sets in we will fondly remember our morning runs to the lighthouse, our afternoon swim in the pool, and playing tennis on a great court in a rustic setting. Isn't that what a summer vacation should be?"
(Rob and Debbie, June, 2007)
"Great Place!! Again, thanks, your vision here is awesome."
"Thank you for our wonderful two weeks at the Moorings. We enjoyed the glorious view from our deck - the harbor and the gardens. And our apartment was comfortable and attractive. In all, it was a perfect vacation. I wish I were back!"
"This was the best week of the Summer. We love it here - the natural beauty of the harbor and the spirit of the Moorings which you created."
"Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us! Our time together was too short. We look forward to seeing you at the same time next year."
"We loved being at the Moorings last year. It's obvious that both you and Tony have impressed your spirit on the place. You've hidden your art: It's beautiful, serene and lets Maine have its own way with one, without the intrusion of any kitsch. That's art, looks easy but tough to accomplish."
"The romanticized vision of too many websites that attempt to glamorize a vacation experience is nowhere to be found at the Moorings. When we arrived, it was at least truthful or better."
"Staying at The Moorings is having an Aunt Sally and Uncle Tony who invite you to stay at one of the guest residences on their beautiful estate overlooking New Harbor, with your own private tennis court and indoor swimming pool. The accomodations are like a designer's home and the landscaping is lavish. New Harbor is Old Maine, before we discovered and commercialized it. We can't wait to come back."
"You have taken great care in remodeling and appointing your apartments. They are very comfortable and do make one feel so much at home. We really did feel cared for during our stay."
"We had a grand time. The weather was perfect and the accomodations were definitely '5 star'. Hope to see you again next year."
"Our stay at The Moorings has been our Maine Dream come true. The morning fog rising over New Harbor was our real-life post card. Tony and Sally thought of every last detail to make our stay in Maine the best we have ever had. Each morning I would look up from my coffee and gaze into the postcard called New Harbor. Our apartment, The Barn, was more than just vacation lodging. It was our home along the Maine coast. Betsy and I have dreamed about a Maine coast cottage vacation for years, now we feel like we have found our 'safe harbor'. We will return to take in the hospitality of The Moorings and the beauty of New Harbor many times."
"For most holidays there is always a period of transition, but at the Moorings it is instantaneous."
