Anchorhold - a vacation destination not to be missed!
Anchorhold - a vacation destination not to be missed!
We had the opportunity to stay at Anchorhold last week and enjoy our visit to Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Isle more than we ever thought possible. The home is beautiful, comfortable and welcoming - a perfect place to enjoy all that the area has to offer. From an easy walk into town, to a short walk to Bar Island, to lazy mornings with coffee on the patio and late day cocktails at sunset in the gazebo, each day just surpassed the day before. Anchorhold is comfortably furnished and has a gourmet kitchen that makes you want to linger just a little longer over every meal. The laundry facilities came in handy and the house is roomy enough that everyone in our group of eight had as much space as they could possibly want. Many thanks to the owners for sharing such a wonderful home with all of us,

I want to live here!!!!!
This "cottage" and I use the term very losely is amazing. It is huge, yet very homey and comfortable. The kitchen is new, and completely up dated. All throughout the house are spectacular views. The location is to die for. You can walk right over to the "Bar" out the back door. Or just sitting on one of the porches is extremely relaxing. You are in walking distance of everything. Bar Harbor it's self has so much to offer and do. This home is a block from the base of Acadia National park. Biking, hiking, climbing, riding this park has it all. There are wonderful restaurants and a great farmers market. Your vacation here could be as low key as you want or as thrilling and athletic as you want. I can not say enough how much I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this property and I can't wait to return.
