                        We enjoyed our stay at Windhaven July 2012. although in some ways it was easy to imagine living as it was in the late 1800s, the home was very comfortable and easy to cook and live in. The kids loved the little back stairway which lead to the kitchen from the back upstairs bedroom. The house was very clean with plenty of linens. The grocery store and town were right there even tho RobertsSquare is a quiet street. Tea or lunch/dinner at Jordons Pond,Arcadia National Park is a must. We spent a few hours every day at the park walking,driving and just enjoying the beauty. Thunder Hole 45min or so before high tide was special. Allso the walk right from the house to Bar Island when the tide was out was great. Then seeing it when the tide was in was unbelievable . Shopping was as plentiful as one would want and there is not a bad ice cream cone place in town and there are many. We had friends staying at the hotel so we also ha the option of a daily swim in a beautiful pool. There are lots of games in the house cupboard for family fun. We stayed a week and did not see everything but we thought we saw a lot and had a vacation we will always remember.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Dear Ann, We are delighted you had such a memorable vacation! It sounds like Windhavens location - so close to so many fun activities and yet on a quiet street - was a convenient home base for your Bar Harbor adventures! We are very sorry about the problem you had with the TV receiver which has now been replaced. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Elsa and Pete

                        We absolutely LOVED Bar Harbor and Acadia NP, and this home is in a perfect location. Easy and short walk to everything you would want to do in Bar Harbor, and quick/easy access to the park. The house is nice, and very comfortable. Make sure you get a Pat's pizza (Double dough mediterranean - yumm). Elsa was very helpful, and everything went smoothly. Thanks for a great week.
