"This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and our 4th will be in October again. Each time we visit, we discover new things about Swans Island and love this house even more. My brother and I have lived all over the US and in SE Asia (Bangkok, Thailand and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) and we have traveled extensively. Without question, this house and our stay on Swans Island is by far the best vacation we have ever had. Thats why we continue to return.
The house is spectacular in terms of the view and accommodations. My brother is a grommet cook and every utensil and appliance are available along with a marvelous gas range and stove. The house is the most comfortable I have ever stayed in. The fireplace is perfect at night and we have experienced both warm days and snowy evenings in October.
Our last visit, we hitched a ride with a local lobster fisherman and took an all day hike around Marshall Island. Beautiful and peaceful scenery. Loved it so much, we hitched a ride again but this time to Frenchboro which was even more beautiful.
We normally buy lobsters off the boat at the Co-Op or from Normy and Nancy Burns. We have also collected snails and mussles at Fine Sand Beach and seen the bald eagle who lives near by. We have also fed nuthatches and chickadees from our hands on the main house deck.
I cannot say enough good things about this house as well as the wonderful owners Clark and Barb. They have always made our visit and stay perfect. Looking forward to many returns.
Keith & Gordy Stewart"

"We loved the house! Slept our family of 5 with room to spare (2 adults, and 3 teenage sons). Awesome, HUGE deck, VERY comfortable mattresses, clean, clean, clean! This place was great. All the kitchen appliances you would need and more. We met family there for a mini family reunion and they rented out 2 of the other houses on the property. Our house, being the biggest, was the meeting place every day and night and definitely was perfect for that. The shared pool is amazing and also very large. We loved it and wouldn't have changed anything. Very close proximity to Acadia National Park and also Bar Harbour"

"Spent a week here with my family of two adults and two teens. Everyone loved it from the minute we saw it. The house is adorable, well-appointed, and immaculately clean. The windows facing the water provide incredible views whether it's sunny, rainy, cloudy and/or foggy. My kids were worried b/c there's no ac, but (as we told them), there was no need for it with the ocean breezes. Between the cool breezes, sound of the ocean, and the pure darkness, we had the best sleep in a long time! The location is secluded (there are neighbors but we didn't see or hear them) but close enough to Schoodic (10 min) and Mount Desert for day trips. If you go, definitely have breakfast at JM Gerrish -- that was our favorite nearby restaurant. Also, the Tuesday farmers market was a lot of fun. The owners provided great recommendations in their guide book. We would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to take in the magic of Maine!"
