  • Extreme Comfort and Beauty for an Extreme Winter Escape

    "When life starts to feel the weight of complex challenges and extreme changes, sometimes an equally extreme getaway is in order. MDI in its desolate, cold and unforgiving Winter season was just the thing…Just you, the howl and splendor of inconceivably beautiful Nature, and 2 weeks of inspiration, quiet reflection and days filled with as much adventure, hiking and sightseeing as the weather and your stamina will allow. What made this possible, and perfect, was the opportunity to stay in Seal Cove at Windy Hill Farm. I woke each morning there to the sun rising over the pristine landscape, and spent early hours reading and writing stretched out like a house cat on the window seat in the upstairs sitting area. Then we were off to a few hours exploring along the cliffs and shores of Acadia, which we essentially had to ourselves. Our frozen faces always melted into wide smiles as we returned to this well-appointed, radiant heated, newly built farmhouse. And if on any day the Maine cold was a bit too extreme, one step into the master suite’s steam shower guaranteed complete renewal. If we got back early enough we could watch the sun set and full moon rise through the grand windows looking out at Seal Cove Pond glistening with a Winter halo of ice and snow. There are no summer tourist attractions this time of year, and only one or two restaurants open on the island, so dinner "in" is your best option. There are easily accessible grocery stores, and the house’s gourmet kitchen and Wolfe stove will make a chef out of anyone! My partner and I are both very particular about where we stay, and this house is exceptionally well conceived and crafted, clean, and comfortable beyond even the most refined expectations, including furnishings, beds and linens. A stunning two story reclaimed stone fireplace, 12 inch exposed beams, one of my favorite Restoration Hardware chandeliers hanging from the vaulted living room ceiling, soothing wall colors, and multiple TVs and WIFI for those who must stay connected all add to the level of enjoyment this space offers. It is so completely planned as a vacation rental that you will never have to think about anything. All your needs will be satisfied and you may feel more integrated, healthy, and whole than you have in years. Thank you Owners for sharing your home and giving us the chance to know the island in a state of perfect stillness, and ourselves as well. I sometimes dream about being there still. It was unforgettable!"

  • Superb Bar Harbor rental

    "This is a superb holiday home. Dee Dee is the most charming and welcoming of owners, and the property itself is maintained to the highest possible standards. Dee Dee's attention to detail is fantastic. She goes the extra mile to ensure that your stay will be perfect. The house is within a 5 minute walk of all of the town's facilities - very convenient. The town of Bar Harbor is a must see for New England visitors. The town itself is absolutely charming - and has a "real" feel to it. The Acadia National Park next to Bar Harbor is one of America's real national treasures and should not be missed on any account. It is magnificent and stunningly beautiful. If you stay here you will, like us, have a fantastic and wholly memorable vacation. Do not miss it . Dee Dee's "Home from Home" is the perfect base for your stay. We loved it and have no hesitation in recommending it wholeheartedly to others."

  • Perfect location

    "My family and I enjoyed a week at this beautiful cottage by the sea! Southwest Harbor is breathtakingly beautiful, this charming home was w wonderful place to come back to at the end of a day of biking, hiking and swimming. The yard was large enough to set up games and the large front porch a great place to gather (Mosquitos were our only challenge). Bedrooms large and beds very comfortable, bathrooms have all been updated. The only drawback was the furniture in the living room, dining room. Very worn down and not suitable for 6 ft. Tall men. Also the internet service was not dependable. Other than those issues our memories of this vacation house will be treasured."

  • Perfect!

    "My husband, daughter and future son-in-law had a fantastic 1st trip to MDI and staying at the chalet made it a perfect vacation. We spent a week and enjoyed all the different activities in the area and the park loop road. In the morning we enjoyed sitting on the deck drinking coffee and planning our day. At night we relaxed after our busy day with a cocktail, cards and lounging around. Comfy couch and two easy chairs worked out great. Nice open area with large table for eating and nice kitchen with all the appliances that you would want or need. Loved the bedrooms upstairs, especially ours which looked out at the water! Very private, clean and comfortable! With lots of windows to make it nice and bright! Can't wait to go back."
