The Robin House is the perfect vacation home, well maintained and clean! The kitchen is well-equipped and beautiful! The views from the deck are amazing and perfect for grilling, eating, and lounging. Our kids really loved the bunk room. The property is private yet close to the beaches and TIMS :-) We had a fun week spending time in nature...hiking, canoeing, fishing and swimming.
This was our second time staying at Robin House and we will definitely be back again. The home is simply beautiful and perfectly functional for the entire family.
I could hardly get my kids to come inside to eat meals. They were always outside adventuring. The island has so many fun places to go and see. The locals are kind and helpful. The house was fully stocked with anything you might need during your stay....a big bonus for me! Add Robin House to your MUST SEE list!
This is our second trip to the Robins House. Everything is well maintained and organized. We had everything we needed. The view and decks are just amazing. It's just so peaceful and beautiful on Swan's Island. This is my 20-year old son's favorite vacation. Also I LOVE the ferry ride. We will be back next summer!
We recently returned from a wonderful week on Swan's Island where we stayed at Robin House. This is a beautiful home and Swan's Island is a really special place. The home is large and very well equipped, in fact, the best stocked rental home I've ever been in. The kitchen was really modern and nice and had everything you would need to cook and serve a large group. There are plenty of towels, a large washing machine and dryer, extra blankets, flashlights, binoculars, and lots of games and puzzles. The home sits on a beautiful property with waterfront access. There is a large granite boulder where you can sit and watch the water which we really enjoyed. We watched seals playing in the water, eagles, lots of birds, and a muskrat all from Allagash Rock. We also enjoyed going to Martini Point which is just a little further down the road. It's a beautiful point with large granite boulders where you can sit and watch the sunset. The decks are great and we spent lots of time sitting on the deck just enjoying the beautiful scenery. There were lots of cool places to explore. We enjoyed stopping at TIMS (small grocery store on the island). TIMS has the basics and also serves hot lunch and pizza on Fridays. Get there early for the lunch because the cars started arriving at 11 when they put the food out. For major grocery shopping we stopped in Bar Harbor, but TIMS was great if you forgot something or just needed basics. Also, you can't buy any alcohol on the island so you have to buy it on Mt. Desert Island, but it is ok to bring it over. We bought lobster from TIMS and it was really reasonably priced and the kitchen at the house has everything you need to cook lobster. We really enjoyed Fine Sand Beach and the beaches near the lighthouse. It seems like around every corner there is a view even more beautiful than the one before. One thing to note is the ferry. There are a limited number of ferries each day and they only hold about 17 cars. They take reservations for 4 cars, but after that it's first come, first served which means get there early (like at least an hour early). We made reservations whenever we could and the remaining times we arrived about an hour early and didn't have any troubles. We enjoyed going over to Acadia and Bar Harbor, but it's definitely more crowded over there than on Swan's Island. I would recommend this house to anyone. Trust me, you'll be pleased
