What a gem! This Maine cottage was super clean, completely comfortable, and very well-equipped for our family vacation. From the bikes in the shed to the ice machine in the pantry, Mary-Jo and her sister have thought of everything a family might need to enjoy an island escape. The kids loved running around in the huge yard and the adults loved sitting on the porch, watching the boats pass. We all appreciated being in a quiet part of the island where we could hear bell buoys and birds instead of traffic. There are a few reasons why this house might be slightly better suited to older kids (we had three kids under the age of four): the stairs have no safety railing and there is a lot of beautiful but very breakable pottery and china decorating the house. But we just kept a close eye on the boys and everyone was fine. The owners are really friendly and accommodating (and accessible -- I emailed questions to Mary-Jo several times during our stay, and she got back to me quickly). Evergreen Anchorage is a perfect spot for a Maine family vacation.
