“Idyllic and peaceful”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We loved our stay on Long Pond and hope to make it a ritual. The cottage is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Kayaking in the early morning on the mirror still lake was the highlight of our stay. I will never forget the quiet beauty of the area.

“perfect place for family trip”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

1. 5 young adults and spouses stayed in Windiana III- large modern house that has 3 bedrooms and a bath and laundry. Allowed dogs with approval.
2. Parents slept in Windiana II- small cottage perfect for 2 people, just a skip from the big house. Has a loft for extra beds if needed. Bathroom size comfortable for only 2. Private deck also.
3. Kitchen(small), large dining table and deck & grill in big house used for family meals and to pack lunches for day trips.
4. Small kitchenette in cottage perfect for coffee and rolls in morning-had mini fridge.
5. Wonderful views from all decks. Property is like a nature preserve on the very tip of North Neck on Long Pond- so peaceful and private.
6. Hiking trail on property and dock with 2 kayaks and canoe for a morning or evening paddle on Long Pond.
7, Delightful owner in residence to help you in any way with information and suggestions.
8. Quiet and tranquil place to renew spirit- a VACATION- yet within 20 minutes of Bar Harbor and Acadia for those who need activities to do. Even closer to Northeast and Southwest Harbors.
