Family reunion at Willowbrook
Willowbrook was a perfect house for our week long vacation for our family of seven adults and seven children. There was plenty of space to spread out. We loved our family dinners in the dining room. It is rare to find a dining room where we could all dine together. The location was perfect for sightseeing. Our grandchildren loved playing ball on the huge yard. They also enjoyed fishing on the pond across the street. Every afternoon we swam at Somes pond which was just up the street. It is great being across from the bus stop.
The thirty page information book was a great help in planning our stay. It is rare to find a home where the kitchen had everything that you needed. The home is very well equipped. There are a huge number of china and wine glasses. We needed a new can opener and Diana delivered it the next day. She also arranged to have the wireless repaired. She takes great care to keep the home in perfect condition. The home is extremely well managed. Diana recommended Red Sky in Southwest Harbor and Thurston's Lobster Pound which were both great. You can also cook lobsters at the home and everything is there including a Martha Stewart recipe on cooking lobsters.

Wonderful Family Holiday
We very much enjoyed staying in this property - so characterful and well equipped, and ideally located for us near the centre of MDI (you will need a car however). Beds were comfortable and the setting was very pretty. We will be back!!!Stephanie S.

Our Family loved the property
Enough space for the two older children and three adults family to have separate rooms. Three grandchildren were in one and two in another which worked great.
Very well furnished with great antiques. Enough room for the 13 of us to sit either at the dining table or living room. The property was located the middle of our activities, close to Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain, and the two Marina.
This is probably our fifth for family vacation, which we do every two years, the families all felt this was our best vacation ever, H family Grove up separately one from Nashville, one from Memphis and we drove up from Western Kentucky. All made lots of wonderful stops along the way. One family went through Niagara Falls, Lake placid, Mount Washington, Bath then Bar Havol. The other family went through Boston, Cape Cod, Philadelphia, Hershey and Lancaster Pennsylvania, and Washington DC - over 10 days.
Would highly recommend the place for a large family

Wonderful old home
The house is very old and has some issues due to it's age, however over all it was wonderful. The owner was very nice and the rooms and beds were great. Low ceilings were quaint but a hazard to tall people. The house is well cared for and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and small appliances. The linens were nice and very good quality. I would stay again if I ever get to Maine again.Jennifer R.

Charming house great for multiple families
We really enjoyed our family reunion week at Willowbrook. The house had plenty of space and comfortable beds for all 10 of us, and plenty of room for people to find a quiet spot to read. The dining room was great for our big family dinners at night and we enjoyed sitting on the patio and having breakfast and coffee. The house is situated in the middle of the island with easy access to everything on MDI. It is right in the middle of a very picturesque village with a beautiful view from the front and a charming little bridge and museum to the side. The only downside is the traffic noise from the street (but not much can be done about that - just bring some earplugs!).Mary K.

Great for a large family
Willowbrook was a wonderful home for our family of 16. It is an old house; so, of course it has some doors and windows that creak and open unexpectedly as well as some ceilings that are very low. But, it is large, beautiful, has a great big yard, is in a very accessible location, and has all we needed in our week there. I definitely would stay at Willowbrook again as well as recommend it to others.Barbara Y.

Family Vacation and Anniversary celebration
We enjoyed our stay at Willowbrook very much. The house easily accommodated the eleven of us. The bedrooms were all large and the beds were fine. The kitchen had everything we needed and the washer and dryer were brand new. The living room was very large and was ideal for evening gatherings. Location was great for seeing Acadia and Bar Harbor. Owner gave us some great recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants. Thurston's Lobster Pound was worth the short drive.Tim
