"If the wonders of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park are your idea of a great vacation then this house is the perfect base. We (my wife, me, an our two daughters in their 20's) just returned from a week there. First, Northeast Harbor is quiet, lovely, and has a magnificent harbor and marina; it's well-situated for all that MDI has to offer. Secondly, the house really could not be better, especially for a family of four: it is both stylish and quite comfortable. The owners really put a lot of care into its design and upkeep -- both the interior and the grounds. I think this may be about the best house we have ever rented and it certainly reflects the owners' obvious love for it."

"We really enjoyed our stay. It is near several restaurants and the ferry and about 1hr drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Forrest.
They have all the necessary amenities. You feel right at home. I would certainly stay here again. Best family vacation ever!!"

"We stayed here with 2 teens and a tween and we all just LOVED the house and the property. The owners don't just view this as an investment property, they clearly stay at and love this house. It is well maintained, beautifully appointed, and stocked with more than you have the right to expect any rental property to be stocked with--musical instruments, linens, restaurant, menus, basic pantry items, laundry detergent, games, movies, books, umbrellas, fans, etc., etc. It was an easy drive to the park loop road, the carriage roads and downtown Bar Harbor, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be able to appreciate the beautiful night sky, find owls, and light a bonfire to enjoy the peacefulness of the woods. I had to email the owner about something and she was kind, thoughtful and helpful. We don't usually repeat vacations, but we just may return to this beautiful location!"

"We had a great time-it was sunny and pleasant the whole week. There were 8 of us, including our 3 adult children and their significant others. The house was lovely, just like the photos and very clean. The kitchen was quite nice and easy to use. The circulator bus into Bar Harbor stops across from the house and runs every 30 mins (every 15 afte 3 pm), but we also walked into town. Note that you must walk through the bunkbed room from the large bedroom into the hallway. But we expected this and it wasn't an issue. It was one of the best vacations we've ever had and made even better by staying at Highbrook."
