We had a wonderful time on our winter vacation at Pikku Suomi! The house was very clean and comfortable and the view of the frozen Meddybemps Lake was beautiful. Gazing up at the stars over the lake at night was one of our favorite things to do. We went snowshoeing on the lake and also at Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge nearby. The peace and quiet were exactly what we needed to break away from city life. The nearby town of Calais had everything we needed to stock the pantry as well as a few good restaurants to dine out. We were also close enough to take day trips to Bar Harbor, Eastport and Lubec. There were a few shops open in the off season, but the scenery and coastal drives were well worth the trip. Jack Russell's Steak House & Brewery in Bar Harbor is definitely recommended!!
We would love to return again someday to Pikku Suomi. It has been one of our most scenic vacations by far!
Hope to see you again!
