About Michael Ho

I am fourth generation from Mount Desert island. My Grandfather Loren Kimball ran the Kimball House hotel in Northeast harbor where my mother still runs and ownes the Kimball Shops on main street. After living many years from away from Maine I made the move to come back with my family to be near my folks.

Michael Ho purchased this house in 2010

Why Michael Ho chose Somesville

My folks own the camp right next to this house so growing up I spent my summers here playing all around where this house now sits. This land was passed down to me from my grandfather. He built the first camp on long pond.

What makes this house unique

The main thing for me is there are no moter boats allowed on the section of water in front of the house only paddle boats. This section of the lake is a protected wetland and wildbird habitat. Eagles, loons and ducks nest in this area. This also made it very hard to build here. So its very relaxing and not busy with boats and people. The house is one of the last homes on the end of the road. There are laws now that will not allow any more building in this area. It is very priveate and quiet area.

Fantastic stay on Long Pond!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the house with my husband and our two children, along with my parents in June 2014. The house was better than pictured. It was immaculate and well stocked. The furniture and beds were very comfortable. The layout was perfect - everyone had privacy - and I loved the full size washer and dryer on the third floor with the master bedroom. The kids were thrilled to run around the yard and go out in the canoe. We saw (and heard) a loon nesting on the lake and saw many deer walking through the yard. It was a 15 minute, very easy drive into Bar Harbor. There is a gas station/convenience store (with pizza made to order) less than 5 minutes away. It is beautiful house in a very quiet location with wonderful views of the pond from the living room and deck. The owner was great to work with and provided local information to help with our trip planning. We hope to visit again one day!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Acadia is an amazing place to vacation and the New Lake House on Long Pond was the perfect place to stay. The house is off the beaten path so we had quiet, saw deer, loons and osprey, but it is located close enough to everything to make outings easy. Clean, comfortable and well stocked, it was also nice to know that the owner was nearby and he even checked in on us via email during our stay. Very nice house, location, owner and vacation! We stayed here with two families, 7 people total, and easily could have had 2 more along... I highly recommend!!

Great house by the lake

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! It's central location made visiting the entire island a breeze. The interior was modern, clean and with many windows offered nice views of the surrounding trees and Long Pond. Two of the bedrooms have balconies and there is one large deck off the open living room with plenty of seating, perfect for those relaxing afternoon reading sessions or evening cookouts. The best part was the canoe located close by. I definitely recommend either an early morning or late evening paddle out onto the lake! I have rented a few different cottages on the island over the years and this is one of the best. I will be back!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful setting and very lovely house with many amenities. This house is great for families or couples vacationing together and affords privacy to all. The little ones in our group were able to "explore" safely right on the property while we enjoyed our coffee on the deck. All areas of the park are very accessible from this location. The owners obviously put a lot of thought and care into equipping and furnishing this house. We would definitely stay here again and certainly would recommend it. We have visited Acadia numerous times and have never before had a rental exceed our expectations.

Great Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

My wife already reviewed our stay with adult sons and girlfriends. I would add that we loved hearing the loons through the opened windows.

Lake House at Long Pond

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two adult sons with a girlfriend and fiancée spent a WONDERFUL week at Somersol Cottage in August 2013. The owner was very accommodating, and the house was actually better than the photos – and a perfect place for a family gathering. With bedrooms and baths on three levels it afforded privacy but also offered a very spacious (and well equipped) kitchen/dining room/living room area with large deck for cooking/hanging out/relaxing – being on the second level this public living area with windows on all sides surrounded by trees and views of the water felt like being in a tree house! Having access to a canoe and small beach/dock on the lake was a great extra, and the location – between Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor with easy access to Acadia – was super – and only 5 minutes to Pretty Marsh to see the sunset! We have visited Mount Desert Island many times in the past, but never stayed at such a comfortable, lovely place.
