Recent Acadia reviews
50th birthday and long awaited visit to Acadia NP
"My wife and I have been talking about going to Acadia NP and Maine for about 20-years. We couldn't have chosen a better place owned by better people! Jon and Nancy are wonderful people and very welcoming. We shared some California wines together. We planned our trip to try and miss the season rush and it was perfect. Our daily hikes were virtually by ourselves and the Lobster Pounds opened a few days before we left our, so no shortage of the good stuff! This property and it's location is absolutely fabulous! It's close to everything you would want and the view from the deck is amazing. This trip was everything (and more) than we could have hoped for. Thanks Jon and Nancy for being such great hosts!!"

Very clean charming waterfront home that fit our family well. Pet Friendly too!
"We loved all the room to spread out and the large yard for our dog to be able to run and get some exercise too!
The house is very clean and well stocked. We found everything we needed. There are two bedrooms upstairs and one bath. Downstairs is another bath, mud room, laundry room, living room/dining and a den. The furniture is comfortable and everything makes you feel right at home in "Maine".
The only reason this didn't get a perfect 5 star rating from us was because of the closeness to the slightly busy street and the noise you hear very early in the AM from the lobster boats/fisherman. This is of no fault of the house or owner - and may not bother many. But, for us as light sleepers we had a few rough spots in our sleep.
The views from the dining room and deck are amazing - we had a couple gorgeous sunsets similar the picture posted above. We brought high end kayaks and felt ok about leaving them beside the garage. It was great to load the kayak right into the harbor at the edge of the lawn- very convenient. We kayaked once at Echo lake but, mostly just paddled throughout the harbor and explored a little island.
There a few restaurants down the street in 'town' and if you cross the harbor you find Thurstons- this place proved to be WAY too busy for us as many were lined up outside - not a good choice if you have a child... Southwest harbor a quick 10 min drive away has many more restaurants.
We brought our dog along and he loved laying on the deck - there was a handy hose near the deck which was useful to wash the dog after a swim or a walk along the shore.
Do be prepared for bugs - we used bug spray almost every night and I brought a citronella candle which we used as well.
The shore is tidal and you can walk out quite a distance - we walked the shore daily and found many "treasures". My son became addicted to finding "sea glass" - I had to explain that the broken fresh glass is just trash and to look for only the frosted kind... let's just say we had a lot of "extra" LOL - but, my one of favorite things to do since being a child and visiting my grandparents in Searsport...
If you want to explore Acadia and the Down East - but don't want the hussle bussle of Bar Harbor then this would be a good option for you. We prefer quite nights and peaceful surroundings.
Paul, the owner is very accommodating and very quick with any questions/concerns you may have.
Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!"

"My husband and rented Edgehill for our wedding week. My family absolutely loved it! They can't stop talking about their stay!
20 people stayed at the house. The kitchen was very accommodating for big family meals.
My husband and I got married in the back yard and held the reception in the barn. 55 people attended the wedding and we were able to fit 8 tables in the barn.
I would highly recommend this house for any family gathering!"
