Swan Island

  • 4 of 5

We were on Swan Island 20 years ago and it is as beautiful as I remember it to be. The location of the house we rented was fabulous. Water views back and side of house. We received information about the house beforehand but I wish we had been informed of the TV situation in case of a rainy day. Who today has a VHS TV the size of an IPAD. I assumed it would have been a DVD player / TV. Brought multiple DVD movies but were unable to watch them. Did however get to read 5 books and play backgammon again. For the most part it was a great vacation. The people on the island were as friendly as ever. If the pillows and the pots and pans and the TV were updated I would have given it 5 stars. Needed utensils for hard shell lobsters. Since we were there last they opened "The Tea Room". It was great for pastry and sandwiches. Tim's general store was also handy. Great looking breads,soups and other types of fresh foods. The house was clean and my HGTV person took over planning how I would decorate it if it was mine to do so.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and comfortable home. Our family felt truly privileged to spend two weeks in a house that was sited, designed, built, and furnished with tremendous attention to detail and artistry. Located within walking distance of trails, beaches, and even the one store on Swan's Island, the house met the needs of all members of our family. Among our favorite features were the well-equipped kitchen, the simplicity of the household furnishings, the antique kitchen table that expanded to accommodate many visitors, the comfortable chairs and good lighting that invited one to spend time with a book, and the outdoor charcoal grill. For anyone seeking a complete escape from hectic and commercial daily life, this is an ideal spot.
