Fabulous Family Vacation

October 19, 2015

We drove from Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Mississippi to meet in Southwest Harbor for a family summer vacation. This was the first time we stayed in Southwest Harbor, and we all thoroughly enjoyed staying in the lovely Thomas Richard House. We were delighted to find that Johanna prepares the house for her guests' every comfort and enjoyment. We cooked in a lot and we all, including the executive chef in our party, found the kitchen well equipped. The four bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed the three sitting rooms. We could choose to join the crowd in the largest sitting room or have quiet time in a smaller room. We enjoyed staying in Southwest Harbor, away from the bustle in other parts of the island. We bought homemade blueberry muffins for breakfast at Sawyer's Market, ate dinner at Fiddler's Green, joined the local crowd for a popover breakfast on the patio at Common Good Summer Cafe, and had several meals from Beal's Lobster Pier. All in all, we had a wonderful time exploring Mt. Desert Island with hiking, eating seafood and popovers, shopping, swimming and visiting some friends of my daughter's from when she attended College of the Atlantic. And four of our party camped overnight at Baxter Park and climbed to the summit of Mt. Katadin! Our stay in the Thomas Richard House was a memorable vacation--almost as if we were visiting a good friend. Thank you, Johanna!

Owner's reply:

I am so glad that you found the house and area pleasing. Maine is called Vacationland and it is my hope to have the house ready for folks to do just that while enjoying the beauty of Acadia National Park. It is folks like you that add to the Acadia experience . It was a pleasure to have met your family and have them stay. Thank You!

October getaway.

October 24, 2014

My family and I rented The Thomas Richard House this past October. It was the second time we did so. We love the time spent there. The house, itself, is wonderful and the location is great. The rooms are spacious and so comfortable. We like to cook when we visit and the full kitchen was just what we needed. The house is very romantic and decorated with such good taste. Both my son and daughter and their families (all together 7 of us) requested that we return there this year. I gave all my family a chance to rent another house but they loved coming back here. There are so many rooms and my grandson was able to have his own room. I would return again, in a heartbeat, next year if possible. It is just across the road from the water and within walking distance of Southwest Harbor center.

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you back this year. It is I that need to Thank You! When I returned to the house I found the sheets and towels all washed and the house in tip top condition. Ellen and her family were the last guests of the season. What a wonderful gift to enter and just put on the coffee for my own family. Words can not express my gratitude. My family and I thank you and hope your vacation memories stay close to your hearts..

Fabulous Rental

August 8, 2009

We recently rented this home for our honeymoon and can't say enough about the house, the owner, and the location. The house is beautiful, spacious, and very comfortable. It is within walking distance to all that beautiful SW Harbor has to offer. Having never been to MDI, the owner was extremely helpful in providing information about the area. We can't wait to go back!
