“Beautiful Historic Home - Rare Family Togetherness Opportunity”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2017

There can be no better way to experience a new scenic location than with family! The opportunity to do that, enjoy, and be a part of morning and evening discussions is just not there with a large family in multiple hotel rooms. Compare to that a stay at Willowbrook, right across from scenic Somes Sound. You can watch from the porch as others take pictures of the view. The home is large and charming, has so much history, unique details and qualities that make exploration irresistible. Our daughter had tears in her eyes upon entering the kitchen due to similarities to my Mom's home. Discussions about the home itself were so frequent and made more interesting by the numerous on site publications and books regarding the area and its history. Most of our family of twelve were 18 or older; all enjoyed not only the glimpse of life in the past, but actually living in such a home made it natural to imagine and of course talk about earlier life. Be sure that Willowbrook was an upscale residence from early times and provides a flavor of such a life. In a time frame when many did not have electricity or indoor plumbing, residents here had indoor plumbing. The 1920s era showers had multiple shower heads, which even now are a rarity. The shower controls alone were very advanced for the time and rival or exceed the contemporary in the ability of infinite control of both volume and temperature. Just imagine when these were new and the leading edge of innovation. Be aware that operation of the showers is not at first intuitive, since these controls are early prototypes from which others evolved. Did I mention FOUR bathrooms? Having seven ladies in our group made this so so nice. It is important to note that there was never a shortage of hot water. So. The home itself is a worthwhile experience, but this home is on Mount Desert Island. It is just so trouble free to make excursions to the various Acadia National Park sites, places to enjoy lobster, outdoor activities, and the bustle of Bar Harbor, with possible intermissions to return "home" to Willowbrook. If you seek modern cookie cutter perfection, skip Willowbrook. Our vacation was much more fulfilling because of our stay here.

“An amazing week in Maine”

Reviewed 28 Nov 2012

We just spent a lovely week at the Somes House...what a gem! The beds, bedding, towels, and pillows were luxurious, and the home is a trip into the past of the best of Maine. Nothing was forgotten in supplying the home with everything we needed. Our last evening was a sit-down dinner for 8 in a grand dining room with lobsters, fresh corn, and great friends. The "Somesville Library" across the street even let me check out the local must reads --- The Secret Life of Lobsters, and the Lobster Chronicles. The Somes House owners Diane and Win were great and were in the area to make sure our visit was memorable. Be sure to go to the Beech Hill organic farmers' market nearby and the Consignment Shop down the street. Acadia National Park is amazing, and go to Jordan Pond for popovers and lobster stew! We will be back!
