A Great Place to Stay on a Jewel of an Island
My wife and I and 6 year-old son made this historic home our base for exploring Frenchboro the week of July 15, 2018. Cozy bedrooms, good kitchen, and a handy laundry room/shower made for a comfortable stay. Our favorite feature was the front porch and deck, with a commanding view of the harbor and Mount Desert on the horizon. We steamed lobsters in the kitchen, grilled steaks on the porch, and picked blueberries in the backyard for pancakes. Excellent trails to magnificent rocky beaches through moss-covered woods are a short walk down the High Road; be sure to visit the charming Museum along the way.
We fueled up between hikes at the Dockside Deli across the harbor, the only restaurant on the island, serving delicious local lobsters, lobster and crab rolls, burgers, home-made pies... and maybe gained a pound or two despite all the hiking.
Overall a wonderful stay at Marcia and Denny's place on this special island. We look forward to returning to Frenchboro soon!
Thanks for the great review. It is a magical house and Island.
