Beautiful Home with Plenty of Space
"Our family greatly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. It is situated among many trees with gorgeous landscaping all about the house. With four bedrooms and a den with a sleeping sofa, there was plenty of room for all of us and gave everyone a place in which to retreat for privacy. The view is pretty, with the early sunrise splaying brilliant colors of red and orange across the water in the morning. My favorite spot was the screened porch on the side of the house, in which I sat in the cool mornings drinking my coffee and listening to all of the birds. The outside deck area is perfect for everyone to gather for cocktails and appetizers. We were so busy hiking, sailing and shopping all week, that we unfortunately didn't have time to take advantage of the basement game room. The dining room was a wonderful place to gather everyone for dinner, and the living room was well used on a couple of rainy days for reading and puzzle making. The kitchen is very well stocked; I think this is the first year we didn't have to supplement any cooking utensils in a rental house! All in all, this house is a great place to stay and I appreciate the owners making it available to island visitors."

"This was our family's first visit to Maine and Acadia. Renting this house was the best plan we made for the trip. The quiet serenity, the wildlife, and the scenery were all amazing. The house is rustic like a cabin and well equipped like a family home. We spent our mornings watching harbor seals and identifying birds including bald eagles, osprey, loons, cormorants, various woodpeckers (including a pileated pair), kingfishers, and forest songbirds. An eagle landed in a tree right off the deck when were were eating our first breakfast. We were visited by deer and red squirrels. We hated to leave and cannot wait to return. Tern II is an enchanting place to spend a week or more. Definitely bring binoculars, even if you are not an active birder. Also: The restaurants in the small towns around the island are outstanding. Red Sky and Sips in Southwest Harbour are excellent, just to name two."

"Windiana ist a very well maintained property, clean and with a perfect location for a relaxing vacation. We have been there mid October, in summer time it must be even better when you can use the canoe and the kayaks they provide. We would love to come back another time and can highly recommend this property and the owner. Even though we could only contact by E-Mail, she was very helpful and responsive, thanks."

"The Down East Cottage is an absolutely lovely home and exceeded our expectations in every way for our family vacation in Maine...the setting is more breathtaking than the photos capture! The cottage is pristine and is the perfect location to access MDI/Acadia and we also had a fantastic experience right around the corner at Lamoine beach finding starfish, quahog and razor clams, eels, and more...our kids had a blast! We enjoyed making s'mores and sitting by the fire pit, playing family games, listening to records, and watching movies after long, action-packed excursions in Acadia, Bar Harbor and beyond. Other favorites included discovering the Bar Harbor Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, popovers and hiking at Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Lighthouse/Trail, Thurston's Lobster Pound (wow!), shopping in Southwest Harbor, and Echo Lake/Cadillac Mountain adventures. We created countless memories at this lovely home in Maine. Shirley and George are extremely responsive owners, easy to communicate with, and extremely thoughtful as they even had a welcome gift to greet us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience everything Bar Harbor/Acadia has to offer, while simultaneously enjoying the privacy and solace of a secluded, beautiful waterfront property."
