'Windiana' is a waterfront property nestled between towering white pine trees in one of the prime spots on Long Pond facing its bordering mountains, Beech, Mansel, and Bernard. It is on a less populated part of the pond with untouched Acadia National Park land directly across. Long Pond is the largest lake on Mt. Desert stretching four miles. It will take you a week to see all the gems on Long Pond! Canoe to Duck Rock for a picnic. Duck Rock is a magnificent sheet of rock that cuts gradually into the lake. Perfect for swimming with all ages. You can even pick up an Acadia National Park trial up the Perpendicular on Mansel Mountain. Picnic to Rum Island and explore this beautifully situated island looking down the lake. Snorkel and find the boulders the size of rocks off its shores. It is a crystal clear fresh water lake. It is perfect for swimming, boating, and bass fishing. Two kayaks and a large canoe are included.

The largest cottage is Windiana III. It is 75 feet from the water. The living room has a cathedral ceiling and a bubble skylight at the center of the house. The main room has a large sofa that converts to a full sleep sofa.. The main bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has a full bed and the third bedroom has two twins. There is a small well equipped kitchen area and large bathroom with a washer/dryer. This house is made for indoor/outdoor living. The deck wraps around two sides of the house and includes adirondacks, chaises, a gas grill, and dining table.

One other cottage with an additional bedroom and bath is available for an additional rental fee. Windiana II is one main room with water views from all sides. It has a queen bed, wicker couch and chairs, small refrigerator, bar sink, full bath, and a sleeping loft with two full mattresses. This room is great for a couple. The cottage has a deck and a view of the lake as well.

Enjoy the spectacular view from the decks and watch for loons and eagles. Take an early morning kayak ride while the lake is like glass. Sun and swim on the private dock and explore a fresh water lake. Canoe to Rum Island or Duck Rock for a picnic. Fish for bass and salmon. Watch the moon rise over Beech and curl up in a blanket and star gaze at night. Listen to the call of the loons and enjoy this unique property surrounded by ten acres of woods. This is Paradise!

About The Owner

As a young child, my parents brought us to Mt Desert as my grandmother was a Somes. I have always been in love with the island and wanted to capture its magic. I have a masters in Art History and Museum work and worked in the Smithsonian before raising three children. I have always been in love with the quality of light in Maine. I paint on the island in the summer and show my work in Somesville at The Gallery at Somes Sound

Why The Owner chose Somesville

In 1761 our ancestor Abraham Somes settled Mt. Desert. This property came down to us from our grandmother who was a Somes. The land was originally part of an island on Long Pond. In the 1950's a causeway was built over to the island. Today this area is now called Northern Neck. The Northern Neck Road is great for walking or running.

What makes this cottage unique

Built on a point on a fresh water lake about 30 feet from the water's edge, 12 foot decks on two sides, Dock, Swimming, kayaks, and a canoe, One of the best views on the lake and on Mt. Desert Island!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beautiful and spacious contemporary cabin is located in one of the most pleasant spots one can imagine--on the tip of a peninsula in a gorgeous lake on Maine's beloved MDI. You will enjoy the views of the lake and hills, untouched nature on the protected shores of Long Pond, the mature forest surrounding you, and the easy access to acadia National Park. For our three-generation family it was the perfect destination.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5
Windiana ist a very well maintained property, clean and with a perfect location for a relaxing vacation. We have been there mid October, in summer time it must be even better when you can use the canoe and the kayaks they provide. We would love to come back another time and can highly recommend this property and the owner. Even though we could only contact by E-Mail, she was very helpful and responsive, thanks.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the large cottage for six nights in September and it was glorious. We were blessed with perfect weather so were able to take full advantage of the boats and nearby hikes. The house was clean, well-equipped, and quiet. The deck is huge and a wonderful place to languish after a full day and see the stars at night. The only noise we heard at night were the loon calls. We would rent this house again in a heartbeat!

A beautiful, secluded hideaway on Longpond

  • 5 of 5
Windiana met all of our expectations and then some. It was secluded yet only a short drive to "civilization" so the location was perfect for us. And right on the lake - what more could you ask for? The indoor accommodations were top notch and cozy. The beds and pillows were super comfortable. The bathroom and washer and dryer were top of the line. And the shower -- WOW -- stone, large, and a great shower head. On top of all this there were canoes and kayaks that we had so much fun with in the lake. We would go back to Windiana in a heartbeat!!!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented Windiana (the main house) to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary and being from Minnesota, originally, we really enjoyed the peacefulness of the woods and being right on the water. Our party including 5 adults and 1 teenager. It was a cozy fit, but we don't mind being in close proximity and it met all our needs. The wrap around porch is one of the best features, allowing us to soak in the views and the outdoor air. We had an absolutely incredible time on Mount Desert and the place was absolutely charming. So simple and clean with such an amazing location! The kayaks and the floating dock really made it special. We played a lot of bridge (my family members are card sharks :) and enjoyed the loons and the deer. We also enjoyed our daily visits from Tucker (the renter's dog) at the waterfront. Great spot to drop off the grid for a bit and simply enjoy the outdoors.

Heaven on Earth-- Honestly!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four rented Windianna for a week this past month. It was fantastic to say the least. The cabin is modern, clean and incredibly well situated on the best pond on MDI. We had a private floating dock with kayaks and a canoe at our disposal which we made use of every day. The pond is much warmer than swimming in the ocean. Our son insisted on starting and ending each day with a swim which included several jumps off our dock. We were a short drive from Bar Harbor and some of the other larger towns on MDI and hiked in Acadia National Park every day. Diana was such a terrific hostess. We enjoyed ourselves completely and plan on returning.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for a better place. Diana was a lovely hostess. The cabin was modern, clean, and perfectly situated at the lake shore. We swam every day and made use of the kayak and canoe. Our son loved jumping off our very own floating dock. What a trip and what memories!
