Spacious and peaceful
"cant say enough what a great time we had here. The four bedroom four bath home gave our group of 7 plenty of space. The common areas were open and inviting with great views of the lake and forest. The beautiful decks and gas grill were a plus. We used the canoe for great views of the pond. A lot of fun. The close proximity to park trails made it easy to hike and come home for lunch. Definitely recommend this place and can't wait to come back!"

"We stayed at Hodgon Pond Farm during mid-June and had a wonderful experience. We were an extended-family of eight ranging in age from 1 1/2 years to 70 years, and each one of us had a blast. Everyone got out in the canoes and kayaks to take in the beautiful views and wildlife. The kiddos loved hanging out in the play area near the house, listening to the bullfrogs and pretending to be pirates. We loved being on the quiet side of the island, while also finding it easy to head to Echo Lake, Cadillac Mountain, and Jordan's Pond House. We'll be back, for sure, but it won't come quickly enough for my kiddos."

"My family rented this home in July of 2015 and it was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 3 young children. It was just the right size for us including the wonderful kitchen and large family room where we were able to kick back and relax each evening after the sun went down. Even though this was an older home you could tell a lot of thought went into the remodeling including the latest appliances in the kitchen and ceiling fans throughout the house. They added to our comfort. Off the road parking was plentiful and there was more than enough room to store our bicycles and yard games.
Another great feature is the location - we had easy access to Acadia National Park which we visited every day. You could literally walk to a trail which would take you anywhere in the park. With just a short drive you could reach any of the beautiful towns and attractions including our personal favorite - mini golf.
I highly recommend this property and found the owner to be very helpful and prompt in responding to our questions. We took her advice on places to eat and to try the Popovers at the Jordan Pond House (which were excellent).
We would absolutely stay here again on our next visit to Mt Desert Island!"

"Owners, Jon and Nancy, were most kind to our family. We found the water-view and the property to quiet and peaceful. One can see that Jon and Nancy take pride in their gardens and property. Top Sail was clean, well equipped and maintained. The property was accurately depicted in the photos and written description. Top Sail comfortably sleeps 8. Having a washer and dryer, two kitchens and two baths was most convenient. As we paddled in their kayaks, we enjoyed looking at the boats in Southwest Harbor. Southwest Harbor has cute shops and several nice eats. Beals: informal, great lobster; The Little Notch: excellent bake goods and sandwiches; and Sips' blueberry pancakes are awesome. The ride was easy to beautiful Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. Sunrise and sunset in Acadia are memorable. Bar Harbor is so much fun with shops, eats and excursions. I highly recommend Top Sail and I would return again."
