Ratings and Reviews

3-generation family vacation
by Deborah and David D. on Sep 22, 2018

We have stayed in many rental properties on MDI over the years; all of them memorable, most of them idyllic. Grasslands retires the trophy though: by far the best location, best views, best logistical set-up for our clan of eleven (6 adults, 3 little boys, 2 babies). The kitchen is both generous and modern: two sinks! two dishwashers! two fridges! while retaining its old-fashioned charm; great layout of bedrooms and baths, fabulous wraparound deck, great lawn for the kids to run and play games on. Flower beds and deck planters could win awards at the state fair. We also loved the details of the owner's family life lived here over the years: books and photographs, a real sense of tradition of Maine summers.


Northeast Harbor has the advantage of being quite close to Acadia National Park's Stanley Brook entrance, not to mention the appeal of the grand, historic summer cottage estates, some of which date to the turn of the century. Northeast Harbor offers high end shopping plus some dining opportunities and boasts an active library, community center, public tennis courts and golf course, and a premier marina.
