About JEANNE FALT
Empty nester starting a new chapter. I work hard and but get to enjoy Maine staycations year round: hiking, skiing, boating, running in beautiful surroundings.
Why JEANNE FALT chose Mount Desert
My house is centrally located just outside of Somesville and ten minutes from Southwest Harbor, 20 minutes to Bar Harbor. Great hikes within a few miles of the house. A remarkably secluded and quiet place in the woods. There is a private dock on the quiet side on Long Pond that would be yours to use, along with kayaks and a canoe.
What makes this House unique
As Acadia has gotten more and more popular it is hard to find a place that offers the level of privacy that you can experience in my Empty Nest. I have done a lot of redecorating and upgrading over the last 2 years. The linens are all high end, Garnet Hill and the appliances are mostly new. And I splurged on a pink velvet sofa!

Wonderful home in a gorgeous location
Jeanne's house is really lovely while also being comfortable and homey. We have stayed before and loved it. We love swimming from the dock, sitting on the screened in porch and reading in the evening in the living room by the woodburning stove. The home is on the Quietside of Mt Desert which is our preference. There is plenty of incredibly hiking near by and we hardly ever venture near Bar Harbor. It is a perfect location and home for us and we are grateful for the time we have spent there.
If your preference is to be in town and walk to coffee and shops, this is not the right spot for you. If you love quiet, nature and enjoy swimming, having a view of mountains and water and want to hear the loons in the morning and at night, this is absolutely the place for you!
Another perfect week
This is our second time staying in Jeanne's home and we love it. The home itself is perfect for us and we love the spacious and well equipped kitchen. Jeanne is wonderful and very available if needed. This home is on the "quiet side" of the Island which we prefer but it is good to be aware of where you are staying. The home is on a dirt road with just a couple of other houses. We have friends that like to stay "on town" to walk to coffee shops and restaurants. We much prefer being here where it is quiet and we have the views. There is plenty of great hiking in this area within short distances and if you want to hike on the Bar Harbor side the drive is not very long. From the dock you are right on Long Pond with views of the mountains and honestly, it is hard to want to leave that spot.
Great spot on the water
We loved staying here-central to everything on Mt Desert Island but once you got back to the house it was remarkably quiet and peaceful. Loved sitting on the screened in porch with coffee and dinner there too. This was a wonderful place to recharge- so restful. Nice re-decorating, too- high end sheets from Garnet Hill, comfy puffs- beautiful place inside and out. We'll be back!
