  • 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."

  • It doesn't get any better than this!

    "My husband and I just spent a hugely enjoyable and idyllic week at the Wicked Cute Cabin on Norton Pond! We went kayaking right from our own private dock, we swam off the dock in the refreshing water, we gazed at stars from the chairs on the dock (you can see the Milky Way spread across the expanse of the sky!) while listening to the call of the loons and watching the lights from neighboring cabins twinkle on the water. We sat in the chairs under the shade of the trees enjoying the silence and beauty of the lake. We were there during the 4th of July celebrations and enjoyed private "surround sound" fireworks that echoed around the lake. The view of the fireworks from the middle of the lake was awesome! We invited friends and family for an evening barbecue at the outdoor picnic table and later toasted marshmallows to make s'mores around the campfire. One of our daughters and her husband joined us at the cabin for two nights. There was lots of space for all of us and our two dogs. The cabin is cozy, the beds comfortable, with all the conveniences of home. The kitchen is fully outfitted and got all the groceries we needed from the stores in Camden. There's lots to see and visit in the area, although it was hard to tear ourselves away from the lake and our cozy cottage. My husband went on hikes with our dog only a few miles from the cabin. We took a day trip to Acadia for lunch, a hike, and dinner. You won't find a better, more relaxing, or fun vacation spot than this! We'll be back!"

  • We Loved the cabin, the atmosphere, the loons, bald eagles, fishing, swimming, location and owners

    "First would like to thank the owners who were more than accommodating and who quickly saw to any need. Roy and his family were always quick to respond and not at all obtrusive. They are a very sweet and caring family who certainly want to make sure you are enjoying your stay. Now about the stay, the cabin is rustic and very comfortable, located right on the water, and a few steps down to the dock. The lake is very clean and quiet, the fishing is great and the sounds of the loons and eagles are present most of the time. Did I also say that the cabin itself is very clean, not large and very comfortable bed in the master bedroom, a well supplied kitchen, and beautiful lake views. I don't know of a single thing more I could have asked for in a vacation cottage, my wife and I will surely return the Good Lord Willing. Thanks to the Deines Family and God Bless You!!"

  • Maine on the Lake

    "I grew up spending summers in Maine so I experience great joy every time I return. I don't need a luxurious place to stay because Maine's charm is being outdoors. Bill's cabin is a nice cottage on a lake in Maine. It's all straightforward, with all the necessary items. Has a big deck as well as a screened in porch. The location is quiet and private. There is a great view of the lake. The yard is large, with a hammock to relax on and a picnic table to enjoy an outdoor meal with family & friends. There is so much to do in the area...my favorite things are spending every day kayaking on the lake, fishing, getting the pie at Moody's Diner, strolling through Damariscotta, visiting my old haunts in Owl's Head, scouting out the local farmer's markets. Looking forward to a return this summer."
