The Little House at Wild Meadow farm is “in town” but away from it all on a private road with a crooked stream, wild lupine fields and pretty grounds. Repeat guests are frequent and accolades common: “Our third year, and it just keeps getting better. I’ve been coming to MDI for 20 years and this is the most “comfy” house I’ve stayed in.” (Jen, Jenny + Mollie the dog) “We’ve had such a lovely week...The House itself is such a gem – light-filled, comfortable, clean and so thoughtfully decorated.” (Julia, Spiro + Theo) “Little House has been the perfect respite. We love everything about it.” (Rob + Elizabeth).

                                                                Another great stay at Little House

                                                                We have stayed at Little House during our annual trip to Maine for almost ten years. The house is a gem. It is very quiet and tranquil. One of the many reasons that we return each year is that the home is always very well maintained. We look forward to returning next year.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Warm regards,

                                                                Had a great time at the Little House! It was a perfect home base for our week in Acadia.

                                                                This was our first visit to Little House and we were very comfortable from the moment we arrived. A welcome basket on the kitchen table was an unexpected surprise, but truly appreciated. We loved the exposed wood beams in the cottage, the ample windows and the amazing perennial garden out back. Also loved being so close to the village of Southwest Harbor but still far enough away to be in a setting of fields, trees and gardens. The master bedroom was very comfortable as was the bathroom, provided you are able to carefully navigate getting in and out of the shower in the porcelin tub. The kitchen storage and prep spaces are quite tight but adequate, and some of the pots and pans have reached the end of their "sell by" date, but we still made several delicious meals at the cottage with all that was provided, plus some wonderful fresh produce provided by Elena straight from her veggie garden. A very special place and we hope we'll be back soon!

                                                                Thanks very much for visiting the Little House and for your lovely thank you card - much appreciated. I did a full-inventory based on your comment about worn pots/pan and replaced one that was in poor condition with an All-Clad stainless steel pan from William Sonoma which should stand up to all cooks needs. P.S. Glad you enjoyed the veggies - happy to share!

                                                                My family of four had a wonderful two weeks at the Little House. It's a lovely place to be - the photos don't quite do it justice. The house is charming, comfortable and filled with light. Great location for access to everything on MDI. The owners were helpful whenever we had a question but otherwise respected our privacy. Yard is a great place for a picnic dinner. Everything we needed for a relaxing getaway! We'd love to come back.
