The property is clean and well maintained. The house is bright and cheerful, bedrooms cozy and the layout makes it feel bigger than it looks. The master bedroom with its own bath and shower feels very separate from the rest of the house. There is a lovely screened in porch that we sat in just before bedtime each night. The sleeping barn is absolutely adorable and was immediately snatched up by my son: "This one's MINE, this place is DOPE!"
But the real crown jewel of this house is the barn. We pretty much spent all of our time in the barn. It is gigantic, with huge doors that swing wide open and keep the view always present. We ate all of our meals at the big table in the barn, painted and put puzzles together on the big craft table in the back, played music on the stereo, lounged on the sofa, considered turning on the big flat screen tv to watch a movie and eat popcorn if it rained, but we had fine weather and never did turn it on. We loved the idea that we could though. We used the wifi to find lyrics to songs we sang and played and were thrilled to find a piano in the barn to add to the "band". I can't say enough about how delightful the barn is. We did some serious family quality time there.
The garage was handy for the 3 bikes that I brought (along with the 3 bikes already in the garage, the place looked like a bike shop!). I was relieved to find a floor pump, as I had forgotten mine.
The house is just next door to Odd Fellows Hall where there were exercise classes MWF mornings. Sometimes there are events there like pancake breakfasts, chili cook off or a concert, but the week we were there did not have anything scheduled beyond the exercise classes. It is a short walk to the Island Market which is fantastic. The kids liked walking over to get their harbor bars and make special orders of sticky buns. We also loved the lobster steamer set up in the back yard. We went to Trafton's warf and got lobsters to steam in the back yard. Hilarious field trip (we had to pull our own traps at the dock) and delicious dinner. We brought our canoe and launched trips around the island from the canoe carry, which is also a short walk from the house.
I've been visiting the island for the last 15 years and have stayed at several houses. When you add up all the conveniences and unique attributes of this house it really is at the top of my list of places to stay on Swan's Island. Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely house.
We are a family of five, and enjoyed a fantastic week at this house. The house itself was very nice, with a well stocked kitchen and a very comfortable lounge area and screened porch. The kids enjoyed the barn, and a good wifi connection. We made use of the bbq and, on the rare occasion that the weather let us down, the board games in the house.
We enjoyed exploring the island on the bikes provided, which brings me on to the owners. Bill was incredibly helpful before we arrived, e-mailing all kinds of information and advice, from what to do in Acadia National Park, to where to rent extra bikes and how to manage ferry crossings. This made everything so much easier, and allowed us to settle into life on the island immediately.
I notice that other reviewers have touched upon their stress about catching the ferry. We avoided this by leaving the car at home, once we were on the island. It was a 10-15 min cycle ride to the ferry terminal, and crossing as a foot passenger with a bike took all of the worry out of wondering if your car would make the next sailing. Anyway, both times we used the ferry with a car, we got straight on. All in all a fantastic place for a holiday, and we will be back as soon as we are able! Andrew, Anita and family.
I'm almost afraid to write this for fear that interest in the place will increase and I'll be unable to go there again, but I know I can't be like that so... this is a very nice place!
Putting the beautiful island aside, I'm not a good enough writer to describe it all, Bill and Victoria's property has everything that you would desire for a perfect vacation. The place was very clean with an extremely well stocked pantry. The property is very nicely decorated and furnished. We found it to be very comfortable and welcoming.
The only problem we encountered was that there was so much to do on the island we were not be able to take advantage of all that Bill and Victoria's place has to offer. There are games, bicycles, a small but very nice and diverse library, hammock, screened in porch, and two TVs, wifi and a party barn that I could live in if it had running water. I can't tell you if the big screen TV in the barn works because during our week there we never even thought about turning it on.
They say that one of the keys of a good vacation is the ability to get away from one another once in a while. Bill and Victoria's place gives you that. My children are all independant young adults and we had a conflict free vacation because we were all able to find our own space when needed. But at the end of each day we would all gather together in the barn, open the doors, let the sea breeze in and enjoy it all . Total contentment .
We found Bill and Victoria to be very easy to deal with and it's my opinion that they truly want you to enjoy their place. I know my entire family did. We had a great time! Thank you.
WHAT a beautiful house and perfect location to everything that Swans Island has to offer!! We had a group that really wanted to utilize every amenity that this rental had to offer (the bunk house, the barn, etc) and we were wondering if it would be too cold during this time of year. Well, we were so pleasantly surprised how warm and wonderful it was!
Come to find out, the island is actually warmer than the "Maine-land" this time of year, since the island is surrounded by the warmer waters! We never even used the heat ONCE, and our stay went into the first week of October! Then, there is the beautiful colors of the leaves changing, most of the tourists had gone, and yet there was plenty to do and explore on the island.
We were also taken aback by how friendly everyone on the island is. You literally cannot drive past another car without being waved to, (and you learn quickly to wave back!!). So friendly in fact, that we were cordially invited to a party around the corner from our house, at the Odd Fellows Hall, for a few of the islanders that had recently retired from the ferry system. We were welcome with open arms, and we even brought food to share and helped out cleaning up and doing dishes afterwards. We were treated as local residents. Amazing!! It was like being in a time warp. Everyone is so so nice!!
This house is walking distance from the islands only store (they even have fresh seafood, made to order next to the store!! This beautiful house is perfectly located. Close to the Ferry terminal, close to the store, close to the lighthouse, etc., etc. The house was immaculate, and provided everything needed for a beautiful and relaxing stay.
We LOVED having dinner in the barn each night with the doors open to enjoy the view, which includes part of the ocean!!
Bill and Victoria were wonderful to work with, and they were very diligent in making sure our stay was trouble free and comfortable. We were even surprised to find a room with bunk beds, that hadn't been shown on the website! Loved our lobster dinner, and a lobster pot was even provided with large lobster plates!
Can't wait to come and stay here again, maybe in the spring!!
Thanks again Bill & Victoria!!
Bill & Victoria - So, I wanted to take a moment and relay that we all had a tremendous time at your place and Swan’s Island in particular. We thought your place was so comfortable and cozy.
The bikes and beanbag toss were nice perks. Carol, the property manager was helpful and kept us informed as to what’s what on the island. My high school twins were of course very appreciative of the cottage having wireless, and I admit that my wife and I took advantage of the internet access too. We found the location and "vibe" of the cottage to be relaxing and carefree. All amenities were in good condition and easy to use. The only limitation seemed to be the kitchen sink being too small for cleaning the plates and cooking pots/pans. The dishes were our biggest, most time consuming chore. We liked the idea of the separate shed bedroom, but truthfully, the isolation and disconnection was not appealing - so no one used the space.
We managed to play many games of Mexican Train dominos, took a bike ride, did numerous hikes to Hockamock Head and surrounds, a trip to Fine Sand Beach, the Carrying Place, and numerous back roads. We made two trips to MDI, once as walk-on and hop onto free shuttle over to Bar Harbor & SW Harbor for ambling about; unfortunately, we didn't grasp how long it took to go from Point A to B plus juggling ferry schedule required high level of time management. The second trip we took our car and did a kayak trip on Long Pond, lunch at The Colonel’s in NE Harbor, hike to Beech Mtn & Cliffs, and grocery shopping at Sawyer’s in SW Harbor. I personally enjoyed the ferry trips and the environs around the terminal in Bass Harbor. It would be useful for a Swan's Island resident to craft some advice for use of the ferry, planning & protocols, etc. There is a real process involved and it took a bit of talking, wangling, patience, and waiting to reduce the stress of potentially not getting on ferry or missing last chance to get back, etc.
I have a fantasy of spending time on an ocean sailing vessel and was inspired by the many sloops, schooners, and motor sailers cruising through or moored close at hand for oggling. All in all, an excellent adventure, so thanks for making it possible by having such a fine cottage to share in a highly unique, beautiful, authentic American place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Swan's Island. The location of the cottage is perfect - it is on one of the main roads that lead from the ferry and next door to the town hall, where we participated in the town's square dance and had a great, fun evening. We made many trips to the Lobster Coop, which is not too far down the road and sells lobster - so delicious, fresh and reasonably priced.
The cottage is very comfortable as well as very nicely decorated. There is a very sweet little room (all wooden) that is detached from the house and sleeps two. Our two daughters slept there and loved it. The kitchen is very well stocked- there is a giant lobster pot and lobster accessories as well as an outdoor charcoal grill - both of which we made very good use of.
We had fun exploring the Island and came across some hidden gems. Must sees are the Saturn Press which makes the most beautiful artisan greeting cards, all done on vintage letterpresses. They have a gift shop and the owners will gladly give you a tour. The White Sand beach is well worth a walk through the forest to get there but you will be rewarded with many sand dollars if you get there on a low tide.
Overall we had a super relaxing, very nice time staying at the house and exploring the island. We'd love to go back for another visit!
