About Rai Bianchi
A family Trust owns this property gifted to the Trust by the parents of the beneficiaries. We rent out the home when family is not vacationing there and reinvest any surplus to constantly improve the property.
Why This Property?
It is arguably the best site on Long Pond and one of the top sites on MDI. It was purchased from the original owners as a modest camp in the mid '70s and then renovated and expanded into a fully insulated, year-round, centrally heated home. We use our net rental proceeds to make property improvements which often are based on guest feedback.
Unique Benefits
The camp to home upgrade added 2 bedrooms and 3 full baths while keeping the feeling of a camp with knotty pine walls, vaulted ceilings and a chalet style wall of windows which brings the exceptional view inside. This getaway has all the conveniences of modern home with the charm of a camp. It is located in a private setting that rivals the beauty of Acadia National Park - and actually overlooks i ... more +

There is no better spot on MDI
Date of Stay: September 10th , 2016

Top O The Ridge is the ideal Acadia getaway. This is my fifth time visiting MDI/Acadia, and by far the best. The location is second to none (incredible views, lake access, quiet part of the island, central location so everything is < 30min drive) but even more impressive was how well the house was stocked and organized. Rai does an incredible job coordinating the booking/reservation process and he leaves the house in a totally user friendly self explanatory state. I will only return to Acadia when I can stay at Top O The Ridge

The Perfect Holiday Home
Date of Stay: August 27th , 2016

This was the most perfect getaway home! Even though I saw the pictures on line, nothing compares with seeing the views yourself. The sun rises were glorious, but the sunsets were incomparable. The house itself was so well looked after, stocked better than my own home! It had everything, from every appliance/utensil you could want in the kitchen to enormous televisions and every dvd you could want. There were 2 canoes which we used and we felt the lake belonged to us alone. So few people using it; it was so quiet and blissful. We did a lot of sunrise swimming. Rai Bianchi was great from the moment i contacted him to possible rent it. There is a manager 20 minutes away, who never minded if we rang to ask how something worked. And then of course, you have all that Acadia has to offer - all within a very short distance. Without reservation, this is the best holiday home I have ever rented. Thank you Rai Best Sara

Fabulous home with breathtaking views
Date of Stay: May 28th , 2016

What a treat it was to stay in this lovely home! Completely stocked, very clean, lots of space, unbelievable sound system, lots of room to spread out, great dock to hang out on, jump off of, fish from, etc. Fabulous layout. We are big on cooking (even on vacation) and this kitchen did not disappoint. The loons on the lake were just amazing to hear in the mornings and then watching them from the deck was so relaxing. Could not have asked for a more spectacular view. The owners are extremely helpful, as well as very prompt and responsive to any need of their guests. We have wanted to stay here for a few years and finally found a weekend that worked for us - it was well worth the wait. We will definitely be planning another vacation here next year!

A view that can not be matched.
Date of Stay: June 18th , 2016

The house was meticulous and had everything you could possibly need. The view could not be matched and the setting of the home is just perfect. We had easy access to all of Arcadia Park yet got to return back to a peaceful, relaxing home. We sat outside for breakfast and watched the eagles catch fish in the lake. Loved taking the canoes out on this spectacular lake and one of the hikes we enjoyed most was along Long Pond. They thought of everything you could need and were very helpful with any questions and guidance on places to go. There was a lovely basket with jam and fruits and I felt I stayed in a home where we were welcome. Of all the views in Arcadia Park which were spectacular we were in awe of the view off of the deck and dock of this house. Could not have been better.
