"We had an amazing time at this cabin! It is quiet and tucked away in a beautiful area of MDI.
The space perfectly suited the needs of our little family (2 adults, a 5 month old and a dog). All week we woke to beautiful sunrises over the water, ate breakfast at the table, and then set out to explore Acadia, Bar Harbor, Schoodic, and Southwest Harbor. We would come home at dinner time (baby goes to sleep early) and enjoyed playing cards in the peace and quiet. Then we would lay out on the nice deck and gaze at the amazing night sky. Make sure you explore the beach at different tides! We had a lot of fun looking for shells and sea glass.
The cabin had everything we needed and was clean and uncluttered. Ben was extremely quick to reply to emails and phone calls (and is super nice too).
I would definitely stay here again. I have already recommended this cabin to family and friends. Thank you for making our first family vacation a great one!"

"My family and I stayed at this house in beautiful Prospect Harbor this past 2014 season. We had a great time, as we love our Maine vacations. This house was just the right size for our family of 4. It is nice and open in the main living area with a beautiful view of the lighthouse at Prospect Harbor. This is one of our favorite locations in Maine. We felt right at home and so comfortable! We saw an eagle, osprey (up close!), deer, and even a porcupine which climbed a tree and took a nice long nap. At dark, be sure to stargaze out on the deck for a fantastic view of the stars.
The owner of the house was great to deal with. Any time we had contact before and after our stay, our emails or phone calls were answered promptly. The house was clean and ready for our visit.
We would recommend this property for a small family, or up to 6 people would be a comfortable fit. The rocky shoreline at the property was fun to explore! There are plenty of other sights to see and places to visit that are close by. One of the favorites is Schoodic Point where the ocean meets the huge Maine rocky coastline. There are lots of trails to hike there, as well as at Acadia National Park. And leave lots of time for relaxing!

"I stayed here with my wife and another couple during September of 2014. We loved how secluded the home was, the beautiful view off the back porch, and the open layout of the house. It was very clean and the large television in the living room was a wonderful addition as we were able to watch movies in the evening. We loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom as it made getting ready in the mornings much easier. We saw a fox walking around in the backyard on our first morning and enjoyed the wildlife that flourishes in the woods around the home.
Just a couple of negatives: the internet wifi is over cellular, so we were really limited in how much we could download (we would have been charged extra for anything over 2 GB of data). I understand the limitations of high speed internet in seclusion, but we were disappointed because we had planned on streaming Netflix in the evenings. Not a huge deal, though. Finally, the downstairs doesn't appear to be heated. Perhaps I'm wrong about that, but we certainly couldn't find a way to heat it. This is problematic if you want to use the other queen bed in the house and the weather is chilly (as it was on our visit). We made due with the one queen and one double bed, but it would have been nice to be able to use the two queens.
Overall we had a lovely experience and I would highly recommend this property with the two caveats listed above. It's a beautiful and relaxing place to stay."

"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"
