We have been to MDI many times and love SW Harbor, but this was our first stay at Central House. What a treat! The house was plenty big for us and our 4 kids, and could have easily accommodated more people. There was ample parking in the back for both of our vehicles. The kitchen was very well-stocked with every kind of cookware we could have wanted, as well as spices, flour, tea, microwave popcorn, soup, and more. The kitchen sink and dishwashers are ultra-modern/professional grade. We greatly appreciated the washer and dryers in the basement, as well as the fact that there was laundry detergent and fabric softener. Everyone loved the showers.. each of which had 3 shower heads.. very luxurious. The upstairs apartment was incredible. While we did not make full use of that space (did not use the kitchen, for example), it would have worked perfectly if we had brought another family on vacation with us. The router for the wireless internet was located on the third floor, which made the connection great if you were on the 3rd or 2nd floor.. not always so great on the first. This might be remedied by moving the router to the 2nd floor? We also enjoyed sitting out on the porch. The location is great if you like to be in town.. we were able to let the kids walk down to the playground unattended, walk to our favorite restaurants, walk the dog to the emergency vet, get to the downtown shops within minutes, etc. We also enjoyed walking to the homemade jam/bread stand.. the kids ate about 2 loaves of homemade bread per day! If you are looking for a super-quiet, remote rental, this may not be the house for you.. while the traffic (car and foot) was moderate, it was fairly consistent. Overall a very pleasant stay, and we would recommend Central House without hesitation.
