“Tranquil oasis on Long Pond”
This little gem is not to be missed. Set back only a short distance to Long Pond, the modern cabin gave us gorgeous lake views, great kayaking each morning and evening, privacy and many quiet moments of sipping a cocktail on the large deck. It is in a great location, a close drive to all the hiking and carriage trails in Acadia NP for the adventurous, yet also close to Bar Harbor for shopping and great food. The owners, Diana and Gary were very helpful with suggestions during our stay. We took them up on recommendations for take-out Lobsters from Trenton bridge, dinner and croquet at Claremont hotel in Southwest Harbor and quite a few of the less traveled hikes in Acadia. We had a great experience at Windiana and look forward to returning next year.
“Wonderful, quiet lakefront house”
My wife, my daughter and I stayed here for a week in July 2013. The house, lakefront location and various amenities were as described in the Flipkey listing, no surprises. The lake is beautiful with clear water and great for swimming. We hiked the trails on the mountains on both sides of Long Pond and also trails connecting to Echo Lake. There are many fewer people using the acadia National Park trails in this part of Mount Desert Island, which is a definite plus in July. We also used the kayaks and canoe, which are provided with the house, on Long Pond. The house was very clean and well maintained and communication with the owner was excellent. We highly recommend this rental and would like to return next year if possible.
“Lovely Week on Long Pond”
My husband and I, our two girls, and our cockapoo dog, had a great time staying at Windiana III this past July. We stayed for July 4th week. There is so much to do, and being right on the lake was key for us. It was also very secluded. We loved have the floating dock. It gave the kids something to do on the lake beside kayaking. They swam out to the dock and back and even brought their boogie boards to ride the 'waves' when some of the boats went by. The house was clean and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable and had very nice quilts and bedding. The bathroom was spacious and very new and clean. We had a great week and would love to return next year. Thank you Diana!
“Quiet, peaceful place to stay when visiting acadia National Park”
My husband, two kids, and I had been planning a trip to acadia for awhile and decided to stay at Windiana this June. The cabin was beautiful and the location secluded and peaceful, right on the pond. We really enjoyed being able to just jump in the kayaks and paddle around Long Pond and the kids had a great time swimming around the floating dock. It was nice to be able to enjoy acadia and busy Bar Harbor during the day then retreat to the quiet side of MDI in the evening. Diana, the landlord, was very accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed checking off her bucket list of suggestions for things to do on MDI! Would definitely stay here again!
“Beautiful secluded home with boating and fishing in your backyar”
My family, including eleven year old boy-girl twins, had a wonderful experience renting Windiana. This immaculate, new vacation home in the woods is bright and airy with gorgeous views of Long Pond all around. Diana is a wonderful host -- welcoming and helpful in her suggestions. The house is very comfortable and well built with everything you need to enjoy a quiet retreat on Mount Desert Island. My husband fished every day on the pond and we enjoyed the kayaks and canoe as well. The house is conveniently located on the quiet side of Mount Desert, close to many greak hikes including acadia Mountain and Echo Lake. A perfect vacation getaway!
We had been planning to go acadia National Park / Mount Desert Island for a while. Our vacation was even better than anything we could have imagined, thanks to Diana and her wonderful location on Long Pond. Windiana is very comfortable - we were there the first week of May with temperatures between 50-65 F and were never cold. It is clean, spacious enough for families and well equiped so that you can cook all you want. Definitely an away from it all feeling, by the water and close to acadia NP. Diana is an extraordinary landlord, always available to answer questions and to make sure you have a wonderful trip. Highly recommended, we will definitely consider going back.
“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! Regards, Joanne Biles
