  • Great experience all around!

    "My family (2 adults, 2 teenagers ages 17/15) just spent a week at the Boenau camp and we had a fantastic time. Bob and Stephanie are the most gracious hosts you could ask for! A couple of the high(est) points: The information they provide - cabin amenities, things to do in the area, tide patterns, where to eat, what to expect, what to bring, etc. - is unmatched. We felt perfectly prepared heading to Maine given the information they provided. But - on top of that - they answered every single one of my very.detailed.questions (!) - AND even did internet research on their own time based on the things we mentioned we wanted to do while we were there. They went waaay above and beyond to make sure we had all the info we needed. We've dealt with owners who put a small amount of information on their site and basically that's all you get. Not the case with this house. The house is wonderfully cozy and perfectly appointed. Never have I had as much at my fingertips without having to purchase it myself. Every cooking utensil you could possibly need. Paper muffin cups? Check. Kosher salt? Check. Binoculars to watch the wildlife? Check. Portable cooler for your outing? Check. Books, magazines and boardgames for entertainment? Check. The set up of the house is unusual - they spell it all out on their site - but basically the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are included in an add-on to the house that is not accessible from inside the main house. In order to get to those bedrooms, you have to walk out onto the front porch. Kind of like a motel with exterior doors. For us, having 2 teenagers, it was perfect. They each had a room and all the privacy they needed. My husband and I could get up every morning, chat and have coffee without disturbing them while they slept. Our idea of a perfect vacation is to find a cool town, spend a few days there doing fun stuff, then retreat to a secluded house and have several days of down time. We've followed this model for the last 5 years and have used a VRBO cabin for each of our trips. This was one of the best experiences we've had. You can't ask for a better house for down time. It is wonderfully secluded with no other houses in sight and it is absolutely quiet. You walk out onto the back deck and have a perfect sunset view all to yourself and you feel like you are the only people on the earth. Bob and Stephanie are excellent hosts and just all around nice people. I highly recommend this cabin."

  • 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."

  • Perfect spot of Fall in Acadia

    "Rugosa is a beautiful and peaceful cottage minutes from Acadia and a perfect place to welcome Fall each year. Rugosa is a perfect, yet simple, home-away-from-home for a week and I always look forward to walking through the front door at the start of our week. From early mornings down by the water, exploring what the tides brought the night before, to tucking in by the fire on a chilly early Fall evening, the space is warm and inviting. We've been bringing our kids since one was a year and a half and the other a baby. For years when afternoon naps are essential, the cottage location is perfect to spend a morning in the park and be back in time for a nap in the afternoon. Otherwise, it is so nice to only have a short drive back after a day of putzing around Bar Harbor or hiking and biking Acadia. My family enjoys meals overlooking the water and watching the sunset while cooking is a special treat. This cottage is a perfect spot to be with each other and soak in the natural beauty of a place as special as Mt. Desert Island--it makes for a truly memorable week and one that I look forward to each year."

  • FAMILY GATHERING

    "We have vacationed all over the beautiful Maine coast many times over the past 30 years. Mt. Desert Island is our particular favorite due to the astounding beauty, tranquility, wildlife viewing, and diverse activities available. My working life has enabled me to visit coastal Maine many times, so Maine always stands foremost in my memory when choosing a vacation destination.This year we required a very special location so our far flung family could gather together. On paper FJORD HOME met every requirement we envisioned. The reality is that FJORD HOME exceeded all our expectations. It is the perfect vacation home. The owner could not be more gracious and accommodating. The house is outfitted with every amenity. The other reviews on this site mention many of the outdoor opportunities available, and they are all seconded. However one one could spend a week alone simply exploring the hiking trails in Acadia NP, not to mention the cycling available on the 55 miles on “carriage roads”."
