Great vacation house with ease access to everything on the island
Submitted: December 17, 2012
Stayed: August 2012
My husband and I spent two weeks at this cozy, spacious house in August. We had friends visit one weekend so we had up to 4 people in the house. I would highly recommend this house to any group ranging from 2 to 6 adults. It was very clean and had all the amenities of home (full kitchen, outdoor grill, comfortable bed) plus the benefits of cottage living (private beach, large deck and outdoor fire pit overlooking bass harbor). We only had one rain day during our time there but we spent that entire day at the house playing games, reading books, and watching the boats travel the bay- very relaxing!! We managed to stay away from the TV for the first 8 days but finally gave in on day 9 and watched the news and the house has Netflix so we watched a movie one evening too.
We were primarily there to hike and we drove to our hiking destinations each day but there is an Island Hopper bus stop right at the end of the street that can take you anywhere on the island.
The owner was there when we arrived to greet us and show us the house. I see other comments about that experience but we personally liked that attention. She gave us great recommendations on things to do, restaurants, etc and was promptly on her way. We didn't find it imposing.
Again I would highly recommend MDI as a vacation destination and this house as a home for your time there. We already have our 2013 weeks booked!!
