"My extended family stayed a week at the Captain Nathan Clark house and we found it an ideal location for our family reunion. The house itself is historic and beautiful, and with it's innumerable additions and remodels over many decades it has a funky charm as well. We found it as comfortable as an old shoe! It actually has two kitchens (which we designated as "food" and "beverage") 2 family rooms, as well as a formal dining room with a view of the harbor. The layout allows for many people to cook and eat together, but also to find space to spread out and find peace and quiet. There are two different outside porch areas and extensive yards and gardens. My teenage kids enjoyed the fascinating old books and great collection of games and puzzles.
It is only a 1 minute walk to Beal's Lobster Pier, where we ate MANY times during the week (and also watched an amazing fireworks display on the Fourth), and an easy stroll into town. A great surprise and wonderful addition to town is the Common Good Cafe, where for a donation to the local soup kitchen you can eat your fill of the BEST popovers on the island (Sorry, Jordan Pond House!). Another nice surprise: just a very short walk up the side street to the lovely grounds of the Claremont Hotel and Xanthus restaurant and dockside cocktail bar. It was nice to be staying in the relative tranquility of Southwest Harbor with bustling Bar Harbor being still just a short drive away. Southwest Harbor is real "working water" with fishing boats, Coast Guard and more. It was a great reunion and we will be back!"

"This was my second visit to wings. It is almost like a religious experience! It is such a beautiful site. At night you can hear the water lapping at the shoreline. What a wonderful spot to enjoy your vacation."

"We had an excellent vacation! This house is in a quiet location with everything you need. Just a short drive to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. There is plenty of room in this house for kids and adults to coexist. Our teenagers loved having the space in the basement level to play pool and watch TV. The hot tub was a plus after a long day of activities. The owners were very accommodating and great to work with.
I would highly recommend this house for your next vacation."

"All four of us agree that this is the one! We were very comfortable in this house with plenty of space to sleep, relax and unpack. Each bedroom had tons of drawer and closet space with more hangers than you'll know what to do with! The kitchen was wonderful and had everything we needed and more and we all found the window seats (there are three of them in three different rooms) a nice place to escape to read a book, play on an iPad or have a glass of wine while unwinding from the day's adventures. We walked into town most nights for dinner and to pick up supplies for the next day. It was nice to be so close yet hear no road or downtown noises at the house.
It was hot on MDI during our vacation week so most days we could be found at Sand Beach, building sand fortresses, jumping the waves and making new friends. We tried a new hike this summer called Ship Harbor. It was an easy hike compared to what we normally do but we all enjoyed it. Per the kids request (ages 12 and 9) we went back to the family friendly show at ImprovAcadia in Bar Harbor again this year. The comedians are excellent and since the show is based on audience participation, it is different each time. We highly recommend it to all ages!
Gina, the owner, has provided everything you need to make your stay pretty awesome. She also provided us with contact numbers in case there was a problem with the house. We didn't have to use them at all but it's comforting to know help is close by if you need it."
