3-generation family vacation

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.
