Even before we left Ferncrest, we were already dreaming of our return. This idyllic retreat, located on Mt. Desert’s “quiet side” was a perfect place from which to launch adventures across the island and a homey, though well-appointed, place to return to each night. We loved the games and books that lined the shelves, the full kitchen, comfortable beds and small artistic details that made every room feel personal and personally connected to the island. Most of all we loved the view of the meadows and mountains from our window. Bruce was a knowledgeable and generous host whose suggestions led us to swimming and hiking adventures we would not likely have discovered otherwise. With Ferncrest as our home away from home we plan to return to enjoy this beautiful island’s many treasures. — Lisa B. @ HomeAway
