Guestbook comments from the owner
We are coming to the Birdsong for our 6th year. That in itself should tell you something. We being myself, hubby and dog Hobbie. We absolutely LOVE it here. It's not just a cabin, but a home and we're glad John and Holly have shared it with us all these years. It's a very quiet area here, kind of tucked away in the corner, but easy, close access to Bar Harbor and all of the many other surrounding towns and harbors. We are able to do a lot of hiking in Acadia National Park, eating at some very interesting restaurants, shopping and find for the most part that this is a very dog-friendly area of Maine. It's also nice to just sit back and relax in this "cabin", read a good book, barbeque out on the back deck, and just enjoy the serenity of the area. This cabin has everything you need, just like being home, is in a good central area, and well, we just love everything about it. The housekeeper does an excellent job of keeping it clean, and after looking at the pictures on the web site, there were no "surprises". Everything was what we expected. In fact we find it fun to pick out all of the new things (furniture, pictures, etc.) that they add each year. We couldn't ask for more, would recommend and have recommended the Birdsong.

I rented this cabin two years ago and loved being here! Somesville is so central to everything on the island. When it became available to purchase I knew it was the spot I was hoping for!
The cabin's privacy, being down a dirt road, combined with its lovely arts and crafts interior make it special. Two acres of pine woods near the top of Somes Sound is a real find.
