"My family and I have been coming to Wawenock every summer for the past ten years. The place is a gem! We love everything about it --the quirky, unpretentious kitchen, the family photos and paintings scattered about, the rippled glass in the windows, the assortment of wooden rockers and wicker perfect for curling up with a book. It's like stepping back in time to a world that moves more slowly. What a relief there are still some places that haven't been "improved" with needless updates! Wawenock has that traditional Down East charm that is timeless."

"We stayed in August with our 3 year old daughter and had a wonderful vacation. Our daughter could have spent the entire week happily picking the berries on the property. The house is secluded and private, but conveniently located. We walked to town and the farmers' market, and made short drives to Sand Beach, Red Barn Farm, and the wonderful trails throughout the island maintained by Island Heritage Trust. Our daughter loved the model of the quarry operations at the Granite Museum, and we enjoyed cooking in the Forge's kitchen as well as eating out in town. Wilda is a wonderful caretaker of the property. She has great information about Stonington and the island, and she generously gifted us with fresh vegetables from her garden. We will stay at the forge again the next time we visit Maine!"

"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."

"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!"
