A beautiful cabin in a peaceful setting on two acres of pine forest.

About Lisa Clark

I am a graphic designer, artist and music lover. An avid hiker and camper, I have been coming to Mt. Desert Island for over twenty years.

Lisa Clark purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Lisa Clark chose Mount Desert

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!

What makes this cabin unique

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.

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.

September in Birdsong

  • 5 of 5
Birdsong is a wonderful home away from home. We rented for 2 weeks, 13-27 September, 2014. The home is well decorated, with upscale appliances and virtually everything needed for an enjoyable stay. There are Bosch appliances throughout. The kitchen has 2 ovend and a gas stove. The pots, pans, cutlery, dishes and glassware were of exceptional quality and the home had everything needed, including a lobster pot. Even the barbecue on the rear deck has its own set of utensils.

Birdsong's location is close to Acadia National Park and many interesting coves and harbors. Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor and numerous lobster pounds are nearby. This home is a perfect place from which to explore this beautiful destination.

We're VERIZON customers. Probably because of the mountainous terrain, our cell phones could only receive and send non-picture texts. We couldn't send or receive voice calls. But, once on the surrounding roads, full cell phone service was available.

The home's INTERNET service was very reliable. Satellite TV had basic service only. Although the set top box was hi-def, the older non-flat screen TV was not hi-def capable.

This home is amazingly comfortable, and is well equipped with quality cookware, dishes and glassware. It has comfortable beds, and is within easy driving distance of every imaginable venue.

Like most VRBO rentals, the lights are CFL bulbs. A bit dim in the evening, but they do cast a warm glow.

My wife, I and our little dog, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Great stay in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5
Birdsong is a wonderful log cabin in a quiet, dead-end, dirt road in the middle of Mount Desert Island. Its a great location equidistant from Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor, so very convenient to the entire island and Acadia National Park. The house is very much as described - a simple, clear, lovely log cabin-style home with lots of amenities. It is in very good shape, clean and very well suited for a week's stay. We had a great time and really appreciated it! Thank you!
