We were sad to leave this place, and wished we had stayed longer. The house was even better than we expected, and the view is worth every penny. I also enjoyed waking up to the sound of loons on the pond each morning! The owner's attention to detail is impressive, as the house was tastefully decorated, every convenience thought of and provided for (hairdyer, WiFi, handy book on the carriage roads, TV in the master bedroom!, etc.), and kept neat and tidy. Plenty of space to spread out, and we appreciated being able to do laundry after days of hiking on muddy trails. We looked forward to "coming home" after a day spent exploring the island! We recommend this property to anyone looking for a home base for their Mount Desert Island vacation, and we would love to come back here again.
