  • Amazing scenery and cozy accomodations

    "If you're looking for the perfect balance of scenery, location and comfort, this is your place. The cottage was perfect for our long weekend and I wish I was there for a full week. Schoodic Point is so close and a MUST visit. Most people staying closer to Bar Harbor don't make the trip there but, it's practically around the corner from this house and it's BEAUTIFUL. The house is well appointed and had everything we needed. The wine given as a gift for our stay was a nice touch and delicious. I don't have a single complaint about this property, the owners or reservation/check in/check out process."

  • 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!!"

  • Amazing

    "This was the best vacation rental I have ever stayed at. The property was beautiful and close to everything, but far away enough to be a relaxing retreat. You can walk to the ferry to Bar Harbor, can bike ride to Acadia Naional Park, or you can sit on the front porch and just enjoy the view. The owners have gone above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The beds are comfortable to beautiful linens. The four bunk beds make it fun and spacious for the kids. The owners have a binder of ferry schedules and things to do. If you forgot a hair dryer they have one. If you want to cook lobster they have everything you need. They had homemade blueberry jam in the kitchen for us when we arrived. I wish I could give this property higher then five stars."

  • Great rental home

    "If I could give this home 10 stars I would. Perfect location for Bar Harbor. Easy walk to town but in a neighborhood so you can escape the crowds and feel like a local . House has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Great yard! Owners are helpful and even brought us some tomatoes. Hope we can stay here again and thanks for being pet friendly."
