What a lovely home! All the conveniences of a modern home within the flavor of the past. We live a rather contemporary home, so the trip back to the historic home was such a special treat. We only had seven in our party, but we could have been comfortable with another five. Diana met us at the house with fresh blueberry muffins and orange juice. Maine hospitality. The quirkiness of some of the "shower knobs instructions" and all of the period knick-knacks and dishes added more charm. (We all would take showers and baths throughout the house at about the same time.) Each room and bedroom had their own unique personality, but the whole house decorating scheme is a complete, experience. Big room for television and playing games/puzzles, with other side rooms for more intimate conversations or reading. The location is perfect---quiet and laid-back neighborhood, but close to Cadillac Mountain, Bar Harbor and lots of great hiking. The view of the bay from the front porch was great for morning coffee and the gardens across the street provided even more peace and serenity to our vacation. Thanks, Diana. Hope to see you again soon!

We can't thank Diana enough for her New England hospitality and warm welcome during our stay in Mount Desert Island. We absolutely adored Willowbrook and the location of the house. Thank you Diana for making everything perfect for us! We had a total of 11 family members visiting from Massachusetts, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, and Chicago. Willowbrook was the ideal spot for us all to visit, relax, and explore Acadia National Park. The house was super cozy and spacious for our big group. The location was perfect for what we wanted - relaxing with family and exploring Acadia. We loved the ocean views from the house and the easy access to Acadia National Park. There were also beautiful sights/activities right near the house, including a pond with a walking bridge, a library, and a gorgeous art exhibit that displayed some of Diana's fantastic paintings. We cooked all meals at Willowbrook and enjoyed our family dinners in the formal dining room where everyone fit at the large dining table. Diana even surprised us with blueberry and rhubarb pies that she gave us as a welcome gift, which was extremely generous and thoughtful! The pies were the perfect finale to our lobster dinner the first night. Willowbrook supplied every kitchen and cooking utensil/tool we needed, which was very impressive since we had some master chefs in the group. The bedrooms were lovely and very comfortable, with fine linens, blankets, and towels. With 4 bathrooms, we had plenty of space for everyone to freshen up and get ready in the morning to quickly head out and explore Acadia. We were huge fans of the game room, the living room, and the front porch where we spent a lot of time visiting. There was so much to do between the board games, reading, or relaxing on the front porch that we didn't even turn on the TVs. Diana was an amazing host. She was extremely helpful, giving us tips and recommendations for Acadia National Park activities. She made it so easy for us to enjoy our stay by having everything so well organized and communicated. We absolutely adored the history of the house, falling in love with its charm and beauty. We'd love to stay at Willowbrook again in the future and look forward to revisiting all of our wonderful memories in Acadia.

Diana was charming and very helpful. She even met with me a month before the rental to show me the house and recommended restaurants that could accommodate 14 people. She answered all my emails and stopped by to make sure that we had everything we needed. Seven couples shared the house comfortably without feeling crowded. The kitchen has new appliances and well stocked with pots and pans, coffee maker and microwave and dishes. The washer and dryer was a plus. The house is tastefully decorated and had everything we needed for a long 4 day weekend. The view from the front bedrooms and the front porch is a quintessential Maine view of water, sailboats with mountains in the background. It is not within walking distance of stores and restaurants, but we spent no more than 15 minutes driving to get to Acadia, Bar Harbor or Southwest Harbor and just a little longer to Northeast Harbor. Since we were 14 old friends from all over the country, we spent a fair amount of time in the house and the front porch and enjoyed exploring the various rooms of this 1890 house and its original artwork done by Diana, her aunts and her mother. Diana mentioned that families with children stay at the house. I would have been a little nervous about letting my kids loose in such an elegant house, but it is a perfect place for a group of adults. Just a great place to have a relaxing stay on MDI.

It was great to have you and was especially nice to have interesting people who enjoyed and appreciated our historic home. Thanks for staying at Willowbrook

I have always been in love with the Mount Desert Island. My ancestor Abraham Somes settled the island in 1761. The home that we own was built for his grandson. I have always wanted to capture the magic of the island and the quality of light in Maine. I am an artist and paint on the island. You can see my work at the Gallery at Somes Sound in Somesville. Mount Desert is well known for Bar Harbor, but Somesville where we are located was the first village on the island.

We provide a list of activities, restaurants, our favorite hikes and our "Bucket List" for Mount Desert when you rent with us!
