  • Quiet week on MDI

    "Our family had a great week at Windiana III. Bottom line - Would we go back? - Absolutely! Two weeks after our visit, I am still thinking about sitting on the deck with a glass of wine, listening to the loons. The house was at the tip of a peninsula that extends into Long Lake. There is a 5+ minute drive down a single lane, 15mph gravel road to get to the house, but once you are there, you appreciate the solitude. Loons on the lake, daily bald eagle sightings, catching trout (small) from the dock, kayaking and canoeing, beautiful scenery....... The house has 3 bedrooms, and may be a little cramped inside for a large family (5+ adults), but was more than spacious for the 3 of us, plus dog! Also, there is a very large deck to spread out. Diana, our host was staying next door, so she was always available for advice or just to chat. The location is very central, with a short drive to Somesville and Southwest harbor. It is a little further to Bar Harbor (20min), but worth being away from the crowds. The kitchen is small, but well stocked. We decided to keep it simple and use the grill. A word of warning if you are going to MDI off season - everything shuts down early, so don't expect to get a pizza at 8:30pm, unless you want to drive into Bar Harbor. Internet service in the house is spotty, but we encountered that all over MDI. The lake was quiet during our stay, with just a few motor boats out fishing. Not sure about peak season, but I can't imagine it would be that different. There is a washer/dryer. Also, the house seems very handicapped accessible. Diana's dog Tucker played with our dog Tucker (T1 and T2), which, along with a swim in the lake, helped to wear him out! The water was not that cold, and I was able to get in for a while in early June. It was a very enjoyable week."

  • Beautiful, peaceful, idyllic Maine home.

    "Our family of 4 and another family of 4 shared this home for the last week. I cannot put into words how wonderful this home is. The pictures, as beautiful as they are, do not do the home justice. Driving into the driveway, after a long flight, we were welcomed with an incredibly beautiful home, that is so peaceful and comfortable to live in. The kitchen was perfect for food preparation, the bathroom and bedroom layout was fantastic, the dining was spacious for 8 of us, but could easily fit another 2 or maybe even 4? However, the best part of the room is that sunroom that overlooks the water. Drinking coffee there in the morning was the most peaceful part of my day, perhaps the most peaceful part of my year! The kids enjoyed heading to the water at low tide, picking up dozens of mussels which we enjoyed every evening. We loved the home and will definitely stay there when we come back."

  • Perfect location

    "We were 2 60-somethings and 3 young adults. We knew Mount Desert Island from previous weekend trips to Maine, but we'd always stayed in a hotel in Bar Harbor. This was a much better plan. The house was perfect for us. We spent our trip hiking in Acadia. So happy to be away from the tourist crush in Bar Harbor, yet within an easy drive of the park and all of Mount Desert's restaurants. The layout of good kitchen plus dining and living areas meant we had plenty of space to hang out together."

  • Great weekend in beautiful Seal Harbor home

    "Rolling out a vacation with 10 people is no easy task, but booking this home was as easy as it gets. The owner was responsive, very kind and welcoming. The house was easily accessible, well-appointed, and clean. Location was perfect as a basecamp for exploring Acadia NP and Bar Harbor, with plenty of privacy and space for our large group. Beds were extremely comfy (especially the master bed), and lots of lounge seating in the living room and multiple decks. The house is beautifully crafted, with plenty of character and comfort. Lots of splendid outdoor space as well for exploring, playing games, or just relaxing. An amazing home!"
