I would like to have The Keeper's House all to myself, but I suppose that's neither fair nor economically viable.
Imagine it: candle light, stunning sunsets, freedom from phones/wifi/electricity, fantastic food, warm and gracious hosts, and the most amazing scenery in the world. Yes, it's remote, but that's the point.
Spend the first day sitting in an Adirondack chair, by the lighthouse, in the sun, and let your mind settle. Let them feed you amazing food at intervals.
The second day, explore the island. Whether within the Park or outside of it, there's great hiking on Isle au Haut. The town itself has some wonderful little shops. The small grocery store has a selection of wine that will astonish you. Check out the gift shop, the Lobster Lady's ice cream, and do not miss Black Dinah Chocolates (what is a high-end chocolatier doing on a remote island in Maine?). You will have to fight me for the right to eat the Blueberry-Black Pepper truffles.
If you expect to be entertained, Isle au Haut may not be for you, . For me, The Keeper's House, and the island, was Nirvana.More
