ReviewsWrite a review
We stayed at this house recently and had a great stay. It's a quality, spacious home with high end appointments and comfortable beds - which made our vacation all the better. The owner was accommodating and professional, and the house was well-outfited with everything you'd expect. No complaints!

Recommended for: Adventure seekers, sightseeing, romantic getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children.
At first, this house and owner seemed very nice but that soon changed. The owner was quick to respond with availability and appeared happy to help us house family members for our wedding. But once we got there, we found a few things not working (ice maker, dishwasher, and slimy hot tub). We asked that the hot tub be cleaned before we came in. Not to mention the black gunk that came squirting out of the jets in the master jacuzzi. Then out of the blue, the owner found it necessary to pester us daily, even on our wedding day, about a small fee that he insisted "we" had to pay, although on the pay pal site it states "owner pays fee". Rent with caution.

Owner response: 1) The renters were told when I met them that the ice maker didn't work and couldn't be fixed within the 5 day period that they would be in the home. The home had been leased the previous 14 weeks without any mention of the ice maker problem. 2) The dishwasher problem was not mentioned to me until day 4 of their stay. What they fail to mention was that the kitchen had 2 dishwashers and the other one worked! Again it was not reported to me that there was a problem prior to their stay. 3) The slimy hot tub is flat out untrue. I put chemicals in the day before they arrived and used it to make sure it was clean. They also claimed to have asked for the hot tub to be cleaned before they arrived (which they did not). Who would ask that anyway? 4) The black gunk in the jacuzzi was cleaned up by the travelers before they could show me. Our cleaning crew could find no evidence that there had been a problem. 5) They also say they were badgered daily about a PayPal fee. They were told that they were responsible for all PayPal fees but elected to charge them to me. When I discovered what had happened I sent emails for 3 consecutive days wanting a resolution since they ignored the first 2 emails and then agreed to pay half. These complaints came as a surprise as we had leased the home out for 14 consecutive weeks without any complaints. The travelers had just been laid off by the government as part of the shutdown that had occurred so I can understand that they were not as happy as one could expect. We are owners who pride themselves on the quality of our three rentals and have caretakers locally who take care of problems should they occur.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Harbor:
Only 2 blocks from downtown Northeast Harbor yet on a quiet side road. Also 2 blocks from the Post Office, grocery/liquor store and the Island Explorer bus stop. Bike rentals are also available next to the Post Office.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We call this architecture, Colorado meets Maine. We moved to Northeast Harbor from Colorado and many of the unique furnishings and interior finishes that adorn the home are from Colorado. It is a style we call rustic elegance.
