'Holly's house was great! Our family of 4 (mom, dad, two girls 9 and 6) stayed 5 nights the week of July 4. The floorplan is very open which means plenty of space to spread out and relax in the evening after exploring the island. The downstairs bedroom has a bunkbed with a full size mattress on bottom and twin on top. Great for kids. The master suite is upstairs and is huge. There is a small bathroom downstairs and a large bathroom upstairs in the master suite. The living room is very large and the kitchen is more than adequate. We had breakfast at the house every morning and cooked our lobsters (provided from Holly's fishing boat) there as well. The deck is large and the back yard good size for kids to play.

The house location (NW Center of the island) is perfect. It did not take us more than 15 minutes to drive anywhere on the island. We never had an issue parking anywhere. There is no real reason to stay in Bar Harbor if you can stay here.

The Town Hill Market, Acadia Brewery, Mainly Meat barbecue and Town HIll Bistro literally surround the house. All of them are a one minute walk or less away. The market has all the staples plus plenty of beer and wine, great sandwiches and an ice cream shop. The food at Town Hill Bistro was the best we had anywhere on the island.

Holly was super responsive and happy to provide any information or help that we needed. We loved staying here and would stay again if we are fortunate enough to come back. Fantastic!'

'Holly's house was in a convenient location, especially for a family with young kids. There's a church playground across the street with lots of equipment and she also has a playset in the fenced-in backyard. There's a convenience store just around the corner and an awesome brew house around the bend, both just a short walk from the house but set away so that you don't hear anything. Holly was in touch during our stay and if we needed anything she took care of it right away. We got lobsters from her family's store, fresh out of the ocean and delicious. I recommend staying here as an affordable alternative to the crowded hotels downtown.'
