  • 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!"

  • Perfect!

    "The Blue Rose Cottage was exactly as described and perfect for our stay. Very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Location was great- just a short walk to everything. We had wonderful weather and were able to fully enjoy being outside. We love Bar Harbor and the park; it is such a beautiful place."

  • Relaxing location

    "We enjoyed our stay at this clean, private, quiet apartment in a beautiful location. Bass Harbor was a short walk as were some of the National Park sites. There are beautiful views from the private beach. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. All in all, it served us well as a quiet, relaxing home base as we visited may sites on the island. We would definitely stay there again."
