"My family rented this home in July of 2015 and it was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 3 young children. It was just the right size for us including the wonderful kitchen and large family room where we were able to kick back and relax each evening after the sun went down. Even though this was an older home you could tell a lot of thought went into the remodeling including the latest appliances in the kitchen and ceiling fans throughout the house. They added to our comfort. Off the road parking was plentiful and there was more than enough room to store our bicycles and yard games.
Another great feature is the location - we had easy access to Acadia National Park which we visited every day. You could literally walk to a trail which would take you anywhere in the park. With just a short drive you could reach any of the beautiful towns and attractions including our personal favorite - mini golf.
I highly recommend this property and found the owner to be very helpful and prompt in responding to our questions. We took her advice on places to eat and to try the Popovers at the Jordan Pond House (which were excellent).
We would absolutely stay here again on our next visit to Mt Desert Island!"

"My husband and I spent a week at the Knollette and it was absolutely perfect. The house itself is very well-appointed - comfortable, attractive, cozy, with everything we needed. It was a great place to come home to after canoeing, hiking, and eating lobster (LOTS of lobster). The size and space were perfect for the two of us and all our gear (including bike and canoe). And the location is spot on. The house itself, located in a wooded section of a dead-end road near the causeway, feels very private, but it is within easy walking distance of Beal's Lobster Pier (did I mention lobster?) as well as the great restaurants in Southwest Harbor. It was close to all the places we wanted to hike and paddle, and the ability to walk to town for dinner and ice cream made every evening so relaxing. Really, the perfect vacation rental."

"We needed a quiet, relaxing get away from our busy schedules and city life. Ebb Tide was the perfect and serene vacation rental. The location is perfect for cooking, reading, and viewing the water from the adirondack chairs. The pictures don't do it justice.
We were able to bring our dog, Riley, and the rental was extremely dog friendly. He loved the water!
The owners were extremely friendly and helpful whenever we needed anything- from Benadryl for my bee sting to suggestions for hiking.
We had the best vacation possible and highly recommend this vacation rental!"

"I stayed here with my boyfriend in June for 9 days. I echo the peace and quiet sentiments. If you traveled one way you had access to the Beech Mountain Trails. The other direction offered a short drive to rent canoes on Long Pond. The location of the house is fantastic. Only 15 minutes to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and less for surrounding villages like Southwest Harbor, Bass Harbor, Northwest Harbor etc. The drive to Bangor was only 45 minutes and we took a couple of road trips just to go exploring. There was no shortage of places to hike, walk, canoe, kayak, climb and you could get right out of the car and touch the ocean on multiple occasions. A photographer's dream.
The house itself is spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked with essentials for cooking, and the living area warm and cozy and open. Perfect for visiting while preparing meals. The bedrooms were perfect with comfortable beds and plenty of space. We even unpacked our suitcases into the dressers provided. It truly felt like home. John and Priscilla were lovely hosts and offered wonderful advice on things to do and traveling times.
We purchased groceries in Southwest Harbor and also went to the Beech Hill Farm Stand where there was a lovely selection of fresh and homemade goods. Perfect for a quick run or for a big shop. People were so friendly and we interacted with many locals.
Overall, this place is fantastic and highly recommended for a laid back wonderful Maine vacation. I couldn't recommend this place more. We will definitely be back!"
