About Whitney and Dan Granholm

Our family purchased this home last June with great excitement. It is the neighboring property to our home and our plan from the start was to fix it up and rent it seasonally. We have done just that and are looking forward to the upcoming summer to have people enjoy this beautiful part of the world in a very comfortable and peaceful setting.

Whitney and Dan Granholm purchased this cottage in 2014

Perfect home for MDI vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most enjoyable time here for our annual Fall foliage vacation on Mount Desert Island. Whitney's and Dan's home is perfect for a truly gorgeous and relaxing stay. The home was stocked with everything we needed and more. Not only are the layout and decor attractive, the beds are super comfortable, the views and privacy are amazing, and the only phone call we had to make (to check on how to adjust the heat) was answered in less than 5 minutes. We have nothing but superlatives to say about this home!

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Mt Desert Island for 30 years and this place is the best! I hate to give it too glowing a report because I want to keep it a secret! The views were perfect, the house was so well appointed both visually and with all the cooking apparatus you could need. The walk to the beach was a perfect way to start and end the day. My daughter in law has allergies which have been a problem with other places we have stayed, but not here. It was big enough for all of us to have separate space and the piano and string instruments were a bonus for my sons who are musicians. All agree- coming back next year

Spacious, well maintained and appointed in a quite location with water access

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 3 weeks at Firefly Meadow this August and our teenage nephew stayed with us for part of the time. The house worked out great and is well appointed throughout. Although it is close to Seawall Road we heard no road noise at all. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and each find our own "space". My wife especially liked the screened in bright and airy porch room for morning yoga and writing. My nephew liked being able to go upstairs to his large room overlooking the meadow and "chill" out after a long hike. When eating in we mostly lit a fire and ate dinner by either the fireplace in the living room or the fire pit outside. The master bedroom on the first floor was very roomy with a walk out onto the screened in porch.

You do get a little bit of a water view from the house looking out across the meadow and it is only a 4 minute walk down Meadow Lane to the water's edge (beach and picnic table) where you can look out towards the Cranberry Islands.

The bathrooms and kitchen were in great shape with everything you will need. We did have a charcoal grill although it would have been easier if there was a gas grill. The attached garage was convenient for storing my bicycle. We have been coming up to Southwest Harbor for about 5 years and like the location of Firefly although it's not an inexpensive house to rent.

Whitney and Dan (the owners) live across Meadow Lane and were very responsive to any requests. And as locals they also know a lot about the area.

So overall I would recommend Firefly. Thanks Dan and Whitney!

Quiet, lovely home...

We had a wonderful time. The house is charming and comfortable. The beach is steps away, close to great restaurants and hiking trails. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful Week at Firefly Meadow!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Firefly Meadow! It is a large, sunny, very clean, well furnished house with beach access and a fabulous sunroom. Not only do you have your own private beach but Seawall, Wonderland, Ship Harbor and Bass Harbor Lighthouse are a short bike ride away. We are a very active family that love to hike, bike, kayak and explore. It was relaxing to start the day in the sunroom or on the beach and end the day in a comfortable home after a day of adventures. It was a pleasure to meet and chat with Whitney and Dan. Thank you for sharing your home and making the rental process easy!

Sincerely,

Rosemarie Guerette
