Cabin is surrounded by tall pines on three sides with opening to water views on the fourth side. Living/dining area includes a large stone fireplace and a wood stove. Dining table seats eight.

      This place is wonderful (dont tell anybody)

      The owners of this property have taken special care with it. You open the door and you are home. Everything you need (bring food and bev) is there. We have never been so completely supplied in a home rental. And then there is the property itself. Surrounded by pines on 3 sides, and a tidal bay on the forth. The 2 room cabin sits well off the road, down a pine needle cushioned walk. This property is on the quiet side of MDI. If you want to experience the most quiet of the quiet side, this cabin is for you. We loved every minute of our stay.

      5/5 Excellent

        Beautiful

        Really lovely cottage. Cozy on foggy days and close to everything else when the sun came out. Amenities exceeded our expectations. Would love to come back.

        5/5 Excellent

          A wonderful private gem on the "quiet side"!

          We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this charming cabin in the woods. The cabin was nicely appointed, and we were truly able to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting. Although we felt very secluded, we could easily get to town and had easy access to roads, etc... A real gem-- thanks!

          5/5 Excellent

            Awesome

            A wonderful place! Great location, beautiful views, rustic log cabin with all the conveniences. We will be back!

              rustic cabin, location to die for

              This is a real, old, log cabin with a newer sleeping addition and plumbing, electric and heat. It is in the woods, on the water, on a cove in Somes Sound, very, very quiet, very private. Really beautiful! If signs of mice or musty smells freak you out, this isn't your place; it's a log cabin and is somewhat permeable to the outdoors. The toilet, shower, heat, fridge, stove all work. There's a huge stone fireplace. Beds OK. If you are used to camping, you will think this is the Ritz. If you are used to the Ritz, you will think you are camping. We had a wonderful time!
