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

Lovely, Clean & Well Equipped Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely home while visiting Acadia National Park for the first time with our senior parents. This house felt like a real home with all the quaintness and comfort. House was clean and well equipped throughout. We were especially impressed with comfortable mattresses and clean bedding and lots of towels. Thank you! Location was convenient to our daily visits to the park. I appreciated recommendations for local restaurants from our host. Don't miss lobsters at Thurston's. It was our favorite! I highly recommend firefly!

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us - a master bedroom with a king bed on the ground floor, with bath,and another upstairs. The ground floor bedroom enjoys a glassed sunroom, while upstairs we enjoyed a view over the meadow of the sea beyond. An easy walk to the beach.

The house had everything we needed and wanted, just outside the village. Well situated to explore the Park.

Thanks Whitney and Dan!!

Warm and welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

Since we spend most of our time between two major megapolises, Moscow and New York, we were really looking for a place we can downtime. Whitney and Dan's home is private, light, with more living space than we expected. A pleasant surprise was a great music corner (piano, base guitar, sheet music and other instruments!). Our kids turned the sun room into their play room. There are two additional living room areas (attached sort of in an L but offer separate seating), so there is space to watch movies and read simultaneously. The house offers everything you need to live comfortably and creatively (a library, games for kids, a stacked kitchen). The ocean air is a luxury. The private beach area, that is a two minute walk, offers both rocks and sand. There are also tables there that can be used to picnic. We loved everything that the Southwest Harbor area has to offer: very good swimming/beach area by Echo lake, tons of blueberries on the way up to Beech Mountain from Long Pond end of July, some wonderful restaurants, sailing, lots of great hikes - all just an 8-15 minute drive from home. You'll want to make friends with the homeowners! Wonderful people: a pleasure and a great resource to have them nearby. Best wishes to their emerging Music and Tennis Center! Will want to return!

Beautiful and Immaculate Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven spent a week at Firefly and absolutely loved it! The location is wonderful. Southwest Harbor is a peaceful town, but still has lots to offer. The restaurants are excellent and we loved having fresh, warm popovers each morning at the Common Good Kitchen! Whitney and Dan have done a wonderful job with their home. They are accessible and readily answered any questions we had. We loved getting up each morning to a beautiful sunrise over the ocean and had terrific dinners in the sunny enclosed porch. Acadia, hiking, and beaches are close by and spectacular! We had a wonderful time at Firefly and can't wait to return!

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!
