  • A Wonderful Escape

    "This property is everything described above. It is in a lovely location and is extroadinarily clean and well equipped. However, it is not suitable for 2 couples or even for a family with children as the only access to the bathroom is through the master bedroom. And while it is waterfront, it is not easy to reach the water so other locations are needed to launch a boat or kayak."

  • Memorable Home, Memorable Vacation!

    "This home was the best! It really was everything we could want in a vacation home. The teens were having a fit about not going to the beach as usual, so they were a hard sell - but even they said this was one of the best vacations ever. Jennifer was extremely receptive to our questions (even the dumb ones). The house was located in a great spot close to Southwest Harbor. A main grocery store was at the bottom of the hill, and the town was minutes away by car. We were so glad we didn't stay in Bar Harbor - it is a lovely place, and we went there twice, but the crowds - forget it.... Southwest Harbor was quaint and had everything we needed. Good restaurants, ice cream, bike rentals and fairly close to all the places we wanted to visit on the Island. We were two families - we stuck the teens up in the bunk bedroom (top of A-frame). It wasn't until the 3rd day we realized there was a pool table in the basement! The porch which runs the length of the house was just gorgeous, looking out over the woods. There were a few homes up on our road, but you couldn't see them through the forest. The stars were amazing, especially from the hot tub. We were there the 2nd week of July and the weather was great - never had to use the AC, always a breeze... We called the house "our green cabin", but it was far from a cabin! I have done many vacation rentals over the years, and it was so refreshing to stay in a home that was really someone's vacation home - not an investment property with zero personal touches. Fun stuff we did on MDI: rented bikes and road around the ponds, having lunch at Jordan House (we timed the ride with help from bike store in SW Harbor and made reservations outside) - beautiful! We enjoyed sunset atop Cadillac Mt., after enjoying a lobster meal at one of the roadside lobster pounds (near north entrance to park). We spent an afternoon at Echo Lake for a "refreshing" swim. A special highlight was going to Sand Beach on the loop road, views were breathtaking. We took a lunch, left our stuff on the beach and hiked up and around Great Head Trail - a little challenging for some of us, but well worth it. I would highly recommend Eat a Pita restaurant for any meal in SW Harbor. My thanks to our hosts, and should we go Northeast - Downeast again, we will be sure to rent this special home."

  • peaceful place

    "We loved the house and the views and the wildflowers. There is nothing fancy about the house, just a perfect simplicity. The children played a lot of Badminton while the adults cooked in the well-appointed kitchen. We loved the little beach just down the road. Everyone slept really well in the silence of the nights. I look forward to returning."

  • Perfect!

    "This was our second stay at Dragonfly Cove. The owners are kind, warm and helpful. The house is beautiful and well maintained, bedding and furniture is very comfortable. The house is perfectly isolated, yet close to small towns like Blue Hill and Castine, both are wonderful to visit. There is a small store just down the road run by friendly locals. We rented kayaks from The Activity Shop in Blue Hill. They deliver and pick up and also are very friendly (book in advance). The pond is great for swimming and kayaking. If you want a chance to reconnect with family, friends, and nature, this is a great spot. We have two teenagers and both times we have visited, they have told us that this is their favorite vacation! Acadia is about an hour away and a must see, but there are also plenty of closer hikes. It is such a peaceful place and I am thankful they are able to share it."

Swans Island Travel Tips

Swans Island Vacation Rentals Offer Remote Luxury

If you enjoy travel to remote but beautiful locations, Swans Island vacation rentals in Maine may be what you've been dreaming of. Six miles from the mainland, the island is home to a population of 350 year round inhabitants. During tourist season, the population swells to 1,000 or more, as visitors arrive to spend the summer enjoying the joys the island has to offer.

Visitors Choose Swans Island Lodging for Vacation Fun

Although the island has no tourist attractions, bars, or tour buses, visitors can still find plenty of natural amusements. If you enjoy a quiet walk on the beach at sunset or a perfectly cooked lobster dinner, an evening curled up in front of the fireplace with a book, or a bicycle ride around the island, Swans Island lodging may be perfect for you. The delightful Acadia cottages on the island feature homelike amenities, making them a welcome retreat from the every day hustle and bustle of your everyday life.

If you choose Swans Island lodging, be aware that you'll be staying in a well-appointed vacation rental. These charming facilities strive to maintain the peacefulness of the island, meaning that liquor is scarce and some rentals have no televisions. In fact, you cannot buy liquor anywhere on the island, and trips to the mainland must be planned carefully around the ferry schedule.

Serenity Awaits You at Acadia Cottages

If you're truly looking for a peaceful getaway, and don't mind finding your own entertainment, a visit to Swans Island may be the perfect option for your next vacation. Swans Island vacation rentals will give you the comforts of home, along with the peace and quiet you've been searching for. You can enjoy preparing exquisite meals featuring local fare, walks on the beach, visits to the quarry, and more during your stay on the island.
