The Little House at Wild Meadow farm is “in town” but away from it all on a private road with a crooked stream, wild lupine fields and pretty grounds. Repeat guests are frequent and accolades common: “Our third year, and it just keeps getting better. I’ve been coming to MDI for 20 years and this is the most “comfy” house I’ve stayed in.” (Jen, Jenny + Mollie the dog) “We’ve had such a lovely week...The House itself is such a gem – light-filled, comfortable, clean and so thoughtfully decorated.” (Julia, Spiro + Theo) “Little House has been the perfect respite. We love everything about it.” (Rob + Elizabeth). The Little House features vintage hand-cut beams, airy living room, high ceilinged master bedroom, cozy twin bedroom, galley kitchen with open dining area, sky lit bathroom and small deck. A short walk to the shops and restaurants of Southwest Harbor. Easy access to everything: lakes, hiking, biking trails and ocean. Includes WIFI. The perfect spot for summer and fall vacations.

Great Fall retreat for biking or hiking

  • 5 of 5
This house was painted and furnished with care and class and is well situated and maintained. It feels like you are in a friends house instead of a rental. We chose to vacation on Mount Desert Island in the Fall to avoid the summer crowds and ride bikes (we rented in Southwest Harbor) through the brilliantly colored leaves on the carriage paths of Arcadia National Park. The temperatures in early October were perfect for bike riding or hiking. We worked up an appetite each day to enjoy some great meals at Thurston's (lobster). The Burning Tree, and Paddys. The house owner was very helpful and responsive and really cared that everything was okay for us. We plan on doing this again!

Owner's Response: Thank you both for visiting The Little House and for the fabulous review! Fall is our favorite season on MDI too, and we are happy that you packed your days with biking, hiking and so many incredibly beautiful views. Hope you have a wonderful autumn and holiday season back in Texas!
All the best,
Elena, Terry and Pip

Adorable little cottage!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two children (age 2 and 8 months) just returned from our epic vacation in Maine! Everything about this home was just perfect for us! It had everything we needed and we felt like we had our own little campground in the backyard. We ate breakfast outside every morning and had wine outside every evening. The location was also perfect, close to town and to the water. We visited Echo Lake, went tide pooling beyond the Causeway Club and enjoyed coffee right down the street from the Little House. Thank you Elena for accommodating our family last minute! I hope we get to come back and enjoy your wonderful home again!!!

Wonderful week at the Little House!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4, and our dog, had a wonderful week at the Little House. The house is so comfortable, very nicely decorated, with nice bed linens and comfortable beds and places to sit. The kitchen is very well organized and we appreciated being able to have some meals "at home" rather than always going to restaurants. There is a nice dining area inside as well as a lovely yard with picnic table and chairs. The gardens and open space surrounding the house are so peaceful and perfect for relaxing, or for kids and dogs to run around in. There large windows throughout the house provide great light and ventilation and it was so peaceful and quiet at night. Very close by there are some shops, including a wonderful coffee shop, liquor store, movie rental store, etc. The charming Southwest Harbor town center is just a short walk away, as are many beautiful hiking trails and swimming spots. We hope to return again very soon. It was a perfect vacation!

Thanks so much. You were all such great guests, and it was wonderful to have all the activity in the yard, and to see that your girls and Indie were having such a good time. Perfect guests and welcome back any time!

A relaxing and comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5
Perfect. The Little House was a relaxing and comfortable retreat from the National Park's excitement. With a toddler, we were looking for a space that would feel like home... and the Little House was just that. Many thanks!

Beautiful but uncomfortable beds

  • 3 of 5
this cottage is beautifully decorated and on a very nice piece of property with a private yard and a deck. It would be perfect if the beds in the master bed room were not so uncomfortable. The mattress is super soft, we turned it over which made it a little better but we still felt like we were not able to sleep well at all. I also contacted the owner after our stay about an item that we might have left there and she never responded.

Owner's Response: All new bed in master bedroom, and the only negative response we have received since we began renting The Little House. So we are very happy about that!
