  • 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."

  • Great place, great location

    "We spent a week here in early September. Beginning with the warm welcome , everything was perfect. the view from the deck changes all day long with the tides, gulls and loons serenaded our stay. the cottage is cozy and comfortable and just a short (20minute0 drive to Acadia national park and another ten minutes to Bar Harbor. the hosts are charming and discrete and made sure the wifi worked well as that was important for us. Lamoine is a quaint, quiet little town with a beautiful, wild stony beach and a goat farm that sells fresh cheese. The cottage is off the main road and quiet. all you hear are the waves. the kitchen is well appointed for those, like us, who like to do their own cooking and there is plenty of info for those who want to go out to eat. Having vacationed many times in Down East and Acadia, this was the best rental yet. We didn't get around to kayaking, but for those who like that, this is the perfect venue with easy access to the water."

  • Wonderful Vacation!

    "My husband, myself and my parents along with our two four legged friends stayed here for a week towards the end of September and had a wonderful, relaxing and amazing vacation. The property is simply beautiful! So peaceful, wonderful views, great access to the ocean. The home itself is also perfect, with plenty of space and everything you need right there. It is located close enough to the town of Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park to be able to see everything you would want to see and experience, while being able to enjoy your own quiet piece of paradise at the end of the day. We hated to leave after our wonderful week there, but am looking forward to hopefully being able to go back again to enjoy this beautiful property next year."
