Great cabin and very nice owners
Great cabin and very nice owners
It was our family's first trip to Maine. We live near Buffalo, NY, it was a long drive to get there and to make matters worse, we broke down on I-95 and had a 4 hour or so delay. It was so nice to get to this cabin after our long trip and see how clean, nice and inviting it was when we arrived. The cabin had many nice features such as the propane heater (it gets kinda cool there at night), the nice shower stall with on demand hot water and everything in a kitchen you could want or need!!! Thank you for letting us visit your cabin!! It is so beautiful in Bar Harbor, look forward to seeing you again sometime in the near future.
