  • Beautiful house and ideal location in Southwest Harbor

    "We have spent three weeks at Wesley House for each of the past four summers (2011-14), and returned for a brief visit this past winter (2015). On several previous visits to MDI, we'd kept driving into Southwest Harbor for one reason and another. Once we’d identified Southwest Harbor as our favorite place on the island, we decided to stay there. Wesley House is in an excellent location – especially for a family; a grocery store, a bakery / pizzeria, an ice cream parlor (great destination for kids who want a safe, independent adventure), and some fine little restaurants are all within easy walking distance. Each of two town docks is within five minutes’ drive, a short bike ride, or a pleasant walk. A pond about a quarter-mile from the house teems with frogs in summer, and becomes the town skating rink in winter. There is an excellent bike shop – offering rentals, sales, and service – about a half-block from the house. Wesley House itself is by far the most pleasant, comfortable home we have ever rented for a vacation stay. The house is immaculately clean, and simply but beautifully furnished – maximal comfort, minimal clutter. We especially love the window seats in the kitchen and front foyer; great places to curl up and read! The kitchen is amply stocked and supremely functional; one of the owners is a chef, and it shows. You can really cook here, and we do: great, memorable feasts, built around the mackerel and squid that my husband and kids catch at the dock, locally caught scallops and lobster, vegetables from the farmers’ market and nearby organic farm, and blueberries – some already baked into the excellent pies sold at Sawyer’s Market, some loose, with sour cream and brown sugar . . .. There is a porch deck with a good, working grill, which we also use to cook; a lovely little backyard, ringed with trees; and a small front yard with a rope swing, which our kids love. We do a lot of biking in Acadia when we’re on MDI, and are able to store our bikes in the basement (entered through a door adjacent to the driveway). The bedrooms are comfortably cool at night, and for the occasional August evening with a hint of autumn in the air, there’s a working fireplace and a good stock of firewood. As for the owners: we cannot imagine better, more attentive hosts. They have been extraordinarily helpful – eager to share the wonders of a place they clearly love, and generous with their time and suggestions."

  • We did not want to leave!

    "I can honestly say that this was the best vacation we have ever had. We did not want to leave (and that is a first!). We were lucky enough to have excellent weather while we visited (much better than at home in Massachusetts!). I spend a lot of time on my patio at home enjoying my garden and flowers. Northernest made me feel right at home (but even more beautiful!). It was so relaxing to come back to the house after a bike ride or hike and enjoy a cocktail on the deck. Kayaked in the bay, had s'mores out by the water, and saw so many fireflys! The kids were most excited about that - I haven't seen any fireflies since I was a kid! :-) The house is well equipped with anything that you would need and I loved that the cabinets in the kitchen were all labeled with the contents....made everything so much easier! I loved just sitting and watching the birds and chipmunks all over the yard. The kids really enjoyed using the porch as their doll's bedroom. :-) This is a truly dog friendly place with a fenced in dog yard and treats on the counter. We are already talking about booking again for next year!"

  • Excellent Arbor house stay!

    "We have stayed several times at Arbor House. It has such charm and heritage to the home. The house was conveniently located to downtown with quaint little shops. Bluehill is a fantastic town to vacation with a large holistically minded/creative/ artist population. The hostess went over and above to make our stay memorable and comfortable! We will definitely return to the house!!"

  • mainely perfect

    "We had a perfect vacation on echo lake. It was the first time our whole family could manage a vacation together in a long time. The cabin was perfect for our needs. We spent much time on the private dock where we enjoyed the breathtaking views and the beautiful loons that came to visit often. The photos of the cabin reflected the interior and exterior very well. We were very close to hiking, biking, and bar harbor. We felt very comfortable in the clean and well-maintained home."
