What Past Guests Are Saying
Family of Six
Berlin, Germany/ Brunswick, Me
Only in Maine...
This beautiful and spacious contemporary cabin is located in one of the most pleasant spots one can imagine--on the tip of a peninsula in a gorgeous lake on Maine's beloved MDI. You will enjoy the views of the lake and hills, untouched nature on the protected shores of Long Pond, the mature forest surrounding you, and the easy access to acadia National Park. For our three-generation family it was the perfect destination.
best place, best landlord
I finished the degree this year and my parents came to my commencement. We decided to rent a vacation house. At this time, my classmate, who is from Korea, with her parents join me. So two family joined this awesome vacation.
The location i think is the best spot around this area. The room is very clean and view is awesome. Diana has a lovely dog who really likes to play games with the guests.
Diana is a such nice landlord. She teaches my parents how to do kayak-- none of my parents and my friend's parents have ever done that before. She stayed on the dock for a long time monitoring us just in case everything is going very well.
well. Just in short: this is the best place. we are thinking to come back again next year.
A great way to enjoy the beauty of the area.
The accommodations were excellent in this brand new house. We had 4 adults and 5 grandkids-a bit cramped with only 1 bathroom and a small eating area.
The use of 2 kayaks, a canoe and a private dock right on a peaceful lake was a highlight for all. The huge deck was a big plus. Access to all parts of Bar Harbor and surrounding areas was excellent.The wireless access was spotty at times.
The house was very spacious, immaculate, and comfortable. Diana provided great tips on what to do and see in acadia. We had gorgeous views of the lake, and the swimming, kayaking and canoeing were fantastic. Nothing was missing, our vacation was perfect. The best part for us was having privacy away from the bustle of Bar Harbor. It was lovely coming home at night after adventurous days and hearing only the lapping of water and the call of loons. We definitely will return!! One of the very best weeks away we've ever had!
Serene Slice of Beautiful Maine
This immaculate cottage sits on an intimate point on Long Pond in Somesville on Mount Desert Isle. If you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful retreat to enjoy the clear, bright air of Maine, surrounded by Long Pond and pine forests, then you will spend idyllic hours at Windiana. The cottage has access to a short mossy shoreline trail, a dock for swimming, kayaks and a canoe to explore the quiet waters of Long Pond where you will see loons, eagles and other wildlife. You will surely see deer on your ride through the woods to the cottage.
The cottage is small, but the features are top quality, including a beautiful natural walk-in shower. Except for the odd rainy day, we spent all our time out doors on Long Pond and enjoying the hiking and biking trails on MDI, including the trails around Jordan Pond and those at Wonderlands where at low tide the tidal pools are amazing to explore.
Mrs. Ansley is a descendent of the original settler in Somesville and is active in the community and prolific in her painting. We feel fortunate to have shared her beautiful haven for two weeks this summer.
Peaceful Pond Vacation
This was one of our children's favorite vacations! We vacationed here with our four children ages 4, 6, 8 and 10 and our big black lab! First of all, Diana is a wonderful person to rent from. She checks on you to make sure everything is going well and gives you great advice about the island. Her home is beautiful with three bedrooms overlooking Long Pond. Long Pond, in my opinion, is the best place to swim on the island. The water is very warm. My kids loved running down to the pond and swimming out to the dock. We brought floats and squirt guns and they had a great time. We cooked many meals and ate on the deck. This rental is not in the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. We have done that and this rental was far more fun for us. Bar Harbor is close enough that we went there everyday to eat, shop and tour. Acadia National Park is even closer. We spent a lot of time hiking and touring the park also. I have written extensively about our vacation to Long Pond, Acadia and Bar Harbor.
