We chose The Centennial Homestead and Family Lighthouse for a muilt-generation family vacation. It proved to be the perfect setting. Located approximately 20 minutes from Bar Harbor and on the Island Explorer bus route it has easy access to Acadia Park. Being at the end of a quiet road yet within walking distance to the town dock and a lobster pound it provided family members from age 66 to 6 with activities. The house has ample room for all eight members. The multiple levels and sitting areas allowed everyone to find there own space to read, watch TV or enjoy a pleasant conversation. The lighthouse was a thrill for all family members and provided a view often not available as well as many picturesque photo opportunities.
Lynn the property manager could not be more helpful. She answered our questions promptly and checked in to make sure all our needs were met. The house was in perfect order upon our arrival.
Learning about The Homestead and life of the Silverman family only added to the experience. Our family developed a better appreciation for this special part of the world. It is not often than you are provided with a wonderful experience while helping others. Through the generosity of Mr. Silverman a vacation at The Homestead benefits many through his philanthropic efforts.
