Recent Acadia reviews

  • Fall trip to Acadia

    "This was a prefect property for us. The location is terrific for accessing MDI and Bar Harbor as it is located right on route 3. The view out the back is very serene - saw deer on most mornings and evenings - and it is very quiet. The home has everything you need, was very clean and extremely well organized. It was actually so comfortable, we bought fresh fish in Bar Harbor most nights and ate at home. Not that we used it much but the cable TV is very convenient and the Wi-Fi worked great. Would highly recommend this to a couple who is looking for a very comfortable base to explore Acadia from."

  • This house is BETTER than described.

    "Every member of our family of 5 (mom, dad and kids ages 11, 11, and 14) adored this house. It is beautifully situated and decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. The owner is delightful. We loved the view and the walk to Thurstons. It is easy to get to the market in Southwest Harbor. It is a reasonable (but not short) drive to all of the activities in Acadia. It was spotless, roomy and comfortable."

  • Idyllic Spot

    "My family and I have been coming to Wawenock every summer for the past ten years. The place is a gem! We love everything about it --the quirky, unpretentious kitchen, the family photos and paintings scattered about, the rippled glass in the windows, the assortment of wooden rockers and wicker perfect for curling up with a book. It's like stepping back in time to a world that moves more slowly. What a relief there are still some places that haven't been "improved" with needless updates! Wawenock has that traditional Down East charm that is timeless."

  • It was ‘Maine-ly’ about being together…and celebrating. We are grateful for the time and experience!

    "It didn’t take us long to decide on a destination, Acadia National Park rose to the top of the list almost immediately. From all of our reading and research, it seemed to offer so many hiking and exploring opportunities and (even though it would take a while) some of us could drive. Finally, we would have a long-awaited vacation with our grown children—and we had a lot to celebrate. For this momentous occasion, we wanted a truly special place to stay…Devilstone Carriage/Guesthouse offered that! The VRBO description items that caught our attention instantly were “3 king-size beds, 4 baths, and short walk to town”—we would all have a commodious space and we could walk when we wanted to dine out. Although it sounded quite inviting, since we had never been to Bar Harbor we did not fully appreciate the “Shorepath seating”…we do now! Although one of us bicycled at times, we did need a car to travel the short distance to Acadia each day. (The free Island Explorer bus had not started running yet for the season.) However, we did not need all the stuff we packed (we hadn’t been on a ‘road trip’ in a while) because our home for the week was as “beautifully furnished and fully equipped” as described. We did not have the pleasure of meeting John, the owner, in person—but at every turn we felt his kind and gracious care. Before our visit he was patient and helpful as we pinned down many details. From the moment we stepped into his home—heard the melodious music and found the delicious food items he provided to get us started—we felt greeted and welcome. Through many strategically placed notes, John seemed to anticipate our questions. The written information and suggestions added to our ease and comfort. We also appreciated and took advantage of his restaurant recommendations—and agree they are great! In closing, we will offer this—in case the words “very private” didn’t pop out when you read the description. All around us there were things to do and see. We packed a lot of exhausting, exhilarating activity into each day as we visited Acadia National Park and in the evening the town of Bar Harbor is bustling with its many restaurants and shops. Still…in the morning when we would wake to the song sparrow or walk a few steps to sip our coffee and see the sunrise from the Shorepath…or in the evening when the noises of town would fall away with each step of our short walk towards ‘home’ we truly experienced the private, secluded peace of the place. Our trip was indeed a JOY!"
