Tranquil Home on Long Pond
Submitted: November 1, 2010
Stayed: October 2010
I just don't know where to start. I could write a story book of our spectacular time at this vacation home.
I would highlight several points:
1) Outstanding location to relax away from the hustle & bustle of Bar Harbor. We felt like we were the only ones on this island. It's beautifully nestled/perched on Northern Nook Island. Although we were surrounded by homes, where we could not even see them the whole time.
2) Outstanding accommodations. We had everything we needed from comfortable beds, ample room to move about with 6 adult and 1 child, and plenty of bathrooms for all of us to get ready at the same time without running out of hot water... :), I would also add they had all the kitchen wares to allow us to have a great "New England Clam Bake/Lobster" meal and
3) Outstanding caretaker. He was available whenever we needed something, which was on just two occasions.
Best of all, Mr. Bianchi "Owner" was so so attentive to our needs. He wanted to make sure that we had a fabulous time in his family's vacation home. Kudos to him for accommodating our outdoor activity to use some canoes from a nearby business, considering Maine had a tremendous wind storm that came through and ripped apart their dock where we could not use their dock and canoe.
We would definitely return to "Top O' The Ridge" Home. We have even contemplated in coming again for a winter vacation and definitely another fall vacation.
Thank you, Mr. Bianchi!
