About Whitney and Dan Granholm
Our family purchased this home last June with great excitement. It is the neighboring property to our home and our plan from the start was to fix it up and rent it seasonally. We have done just that and are looking forward to the upcoming summer to have people enjoy this beautiful part of the world in a very comfortable and peaceful setting.
Whitney and Dan Granholm purchased this Cottage in 2014

A great place to get away from it all
We had a wonderful week in Whitney and Dan’s house. It was spacious, well cared for home with beautiful view. Thank you Whitney and Dan!
I have always loved a vacation rental with an extensive and interesting library on its shelves, and this home certainly has it (in addition to music, instruments and games). Comfortable, extremely clean and organized, spacious and airy — an easy and delightful home. Would happily return.
We had a wonderful vacation in Maine. Dan and Whitney's house is perfect. The easy walk to the beach and the view from the sunroom are amazing. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Dan and Whitney answered all of our questions immediately and were very gracious. We had a bonfire on the beach one night and could hear the loons calling out. Just don't forget to use your bug spray! We would definitely recommend this house and hope to return one day.
We loved our stay at Firefly. It was private, yet close to all restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. We especially enjoyed the private beach and being able to take our dog there. We visited to Bass Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Bar Harbor, and Schoodic. Being one mile from the Seawall was also a plus. The cottage was large and had a perfect layout for our family of four. Whitney and Dan were great!
Southwest Harbor Retreat
This was a great MDI house and location. There's a view of the ocean in the distance and the beach is just a short 5-minute walk down a private road. It is a 5-minute drive to the village of Southwest Harbor, where there are several good places to eat, buy amazing pies and cinnamon buns, fresh fish and lobster, and a few small galleries. The house has comfortable beds and lots of windows to let in ocean breezes. There were plenty of linens and cooking utensils, pots and pans. The screen porch was wonderful to sit on in the early morning and evenings before and after hikes and other excursions . There was a big yard for our dog to run around in. The owner Dan Granholm was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this cottage for families or friends traveling to this spectacularly beautiful area.
What a wonderful vacation and we loved our stay at Firefly!
We felt right at home and comfortable from the moment we arrived. The home is very spacious and has a nice roomy layout, with multiple living areas. Southwest Harbor was an ideal ‘base’ for us - cute town w/ several nice restaurants and shops, and much less crowded than Bar Harbor, and a short drive to Acadia trails. Owners, Dan and Whitney, could not have been more helpful and accessible to us when we had questions. They also hooked us up with an AWESOME dog sitter, allowing us a few evenings out without our pup. We would definitely stay here again!
Firefly Meadow is situated in a quiet setting with a beautiful field and ocean view. This private home also boasts a private, short walk to the Maine rocky shore for hours of beach combing. Located a few miles from Southwest Harbor, an easy trip to get provisions and visit stores and restaurants. Also Acadia National Park is only 2 miles away offering several walks and hikes for all levels.
