Recent Swans Island reviews

  • Wonderful Place to Stay!

    "My family of 4- my husband and and 2 teens( 15 & 17) had a wonderful time on Swan's island. The house was great- had all the amenities and creature comforts for a wonderful vacation. My husband and I love to cook and bake . After his morning swim and my morning walk/yoga we spent a lot of time in the kitchen making all kinds of food we don't normally have time to make at home. Swans island allowed us to slow down rest relax and enjoy lots of family time. We took a beautiful walk to goose pond several times. The Quarry was also a neat place to hang out and swim. Our children became expert table tennis players. They got so good that they played with their non-dominant hand and still kicked my butt! They stayed in the small cozy room next to the house. They loved the privacy! The barn was also a great family hangout. Bill was very helpful in giving me suggestions of what to do. We didn't leave the island as we have been to Mt Desert island a few times before. I would suggest going to a large grocery store to stock up before getting on the ferry. This was great as we didn't need much once we got there and it's more cost effective. The owners of the store on Swans were very nice and accommodating when we did need something. This is the ultimate vacation away from home if you need to chill out. There are plenty of mosquitos so bring your bug spray if they like you!!! Our friends who originally told us about Swan's island cooked us the best lobster I have ever had. Of course it was super fresh and delish from a local lobsterman. Swans is supremely beautiful and pristine. You will not be disappointed staying at this beautiful home. Thanks Bill and Victoria!!"

  • The Best!

    "Our family had a wonderful time - your home away from home was perfect. Housekeeping had the house spotless! This is a great location. We brought kayaks to paddle in the tidal cove, enjoyed the decks, screen porch and lobster delivered to our door by the neighbor. Check out the local food co-op for groceries. We saw fox, deer, eagles and a heron right there. Many hiking trails nearby, especially to Barren island at low tide. Our family with 2 teenage boys had a great vacation. The owners were great to work with. Definitely would recommend this rental."

  • Serenity

    "We loved our stay at the Forge. Being "off the grid" was just what we needed. Have been to Stonington many times before but really loved being close to town and the beach. We hiked the Island Heritage Trust trails and enjoyed packing a lunch and finding a beautiful spot to have it. Did our mailboat trip to Isle Au Haut to hike. One of my favorite days of our trip. We had perfect weather. My most favorite of all were the stars!!!! We could watch them outside and then again while lying in bed. Try to plan your time there around a new moon. Thank you Wilda for sharing your place with us. Thanks for letting us have our black lab Kiva . The home is private and comfy. At first I didn't know about the no tv or cell phone but I loved it. Should happen more often!!!! Hope to be back again."
