About Sandra Guzas

My husband and I grew up in Worcester, MA and lived most of our lives in the Massachusetts area. When our children 'flew the nest' we decided to move to New Hampshire, which is where we currently reside. We have always wanted a home in Maine.

Sandra Guzas purchased this house in 2006

Why Sandra Guzas chose Bristol

We found this wonderful property in Bristol many years ago and were finally able to build our dream home as well as a comfortable smaller version for our children to use. We decided to open up our lovely smaller property to renters who could enjoy the peace and serenity of the area as well as the many activities available in the spring, summer and fall.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located to many attractions in the mid-coast area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I would like to thank you for the use of your cottage, we had a wonderful time there. It was clean and well kept, just the right amount of space for the two of us. Boyd Pond was very relaxing we would do our morning walks on Quail Run Road and go to the pond after each walk and we thoroughly enjoyed it.



Once again we thank you for the use of your home.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

From the beautiful decor to all the needed necessities this place is truly a home away from home! We absolutely loved this rental! It had everything you could think of needing ...literally all you need to bring is your clothes and then make a visit to the grocery store and your stay will be wonderful! Although we did not have a chance to meet Sandra all our communication was great and things were just as described! Much better than a hotel and definitely a better value! We will be back in the future!

Serene yet accessible.

  • 5 of 5

Felt like we were in the north woods while conveniently still being in coastal Maine. Access to the pond and kayaking was a big draw!

The only issue we had was the connectivity of the television, very slow connection, we couldn't watch a television show or movie. They should have a dish service or something similar.

Owner's Response: I' m. Happy you enjoyed our cottage. Our TV does stream movies as long as the internet is not used for other devices at the same time. Also if you subscribe to Netflix or similar you can access your subscription thru our Roku TV. There are free programs that are available for watching in addition to having a DVD player for movies.

Peaceful escape in the woods of Maine

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Sandra's cabin. Sandra was prompt to respond to any questions despite being out of the country. The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking and the queen bed was quite comfortable. The only thing that would've made our stay better is more comfortable furniture on the main floor. There is a great couch and hang space in the loft, but wicker furniture on the main level. Overall, fantastic experience! Thank you!!

Tranquil and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The Guzas have a lovely, peaceful vacation home in the midst of the Pemaquid Peninsula woods. It was well stocked and welcoming. Hooking up to WiFi was a little more techy than I am accustomed to . . . in the end, stayed off the grid. This was a great home base for my cousin and I to use for our visit to MidCoast Maine.
