This is our Family summer home. My brother and sister live in Virgina and I live in Southern Maine.
Steve purchased this House in 1988
Why Steve chose Mount Desert
This has always been a special place for my family, when we were growing up our parents would bring here for the summer to escape the heat of Philadelphia. There is no better place to escape in the summer, unwind, enjoy the quiet and the beauty of the lake and the national park.
What makes this House unique
Get away from it all. The house faces west, and has spectacular sunsets. The lake is beautiful and the other side of the lake is national park, so there is nothing to spoil the view. From the moment you drive down the big hill to the house you feel like you are truly escaping.

beautiful lake in a great area of Maine
Hi Steve ,
We really enjoyed everything in SW Harbor , Long Pond , and Bar Harbor . The lake views at the house , sitting on the deck are perfect in the morning and late afternoon . The layout of the house is a little strange so definitely need to vacation with family or people you know super well since the upstairs guests have to come down into the downstairs bedrooms. The main thing that I would recommend is newer sheets/linens and towels . They were a bit worn and the fitted sheet for the upstairs had no elastic so kept coming undone . There were a few lights that did not work . Also would have been nice to use the BBQ.
Glad you had a good stay at the camp. The layout is odd, as we mention in the description of the house. Thank you for the feedback on the linens we will be investing in new ones for next season. Not sure why you couldn't use the BBQ, can you please let me know why you couldn't use it so future guests don't have the same issue.
A perfect location to visit Acadia National Park.
My family and relatives spent a week at Steve's property Northwood on Long Pond. It was a perfect combination of close proximity to the park, Bar Harbor, Cranberry Islands while being able to retreat to a beautiful view, porch and dock with gorgeous sunsets, sound of loons, swimming in pond. Steve was responsive and helpful with suggestions and tips before and during stay. House was comfortable with all amenities. A broken sewer pipe caused some distress, however this was fixed quickly. I can highly recommend Northwood as a vacation stay.
Great Memories that will last a lifetime
The house is amazing! Every morning was spent on the dock with kayaking. Close to the carriage road for bike riding and hiking. Spent evenings either at dock or at Bar Harbor. Such a great vacation, great house, great location! They even had 3 kayaks for us to use, so we only had to bring one. I would definately rent this house again!!!
Just a few miles from Acadia National park. Easy to get to Bar Harbor. On the Quiet side of the the island.
