"It was a week in paradise. The weather was beautiful, the privacy undisturbed. The calm waters of the pond were so inviting that I swam a couple of times a day. Beautiful scenery, a lot of places to visit on the Mount Desert Island, the land of Acadia national park. Nice local gift galleries and shops. The cottage itself is cozy and comfortable, has everything you need for your getaway in terms of the household items. We loved the wood stove and the grill outside on the patio. I especially loved the hammock for reading my novel, so perfectly positioned to catch the afternoon sun."

"Words can not describe the beauty of this property. We had five adults visiting Maine and Canada. We couldn't wait to get back each evening to see the starts and fall asleep to cool air and comfortable beds. The landscaping and design was amazing. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for beauty, peace and privacy."

"John, Priscilla and Suze (manager) were all wonderful and very responsive and helpful.
The house is tucked away in a nice neighborhood and as other reviews mentioned, it is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. It is clean, comfortable and spacious with everything you need. Nice kitchen, great washer/dryer.
Getting to Bar Harbor can take up to 20-25 minutes with traffic during the busier times. There are wonderful hikes and interesting things to do on this side of MDI, so no need to drive to the other side all the time.
All in all, a lovely spot for a wonderful vacation!"

"We were first timers to Maine and Acadia. We had heard from many people we know about the crowds in the park. Initially, we debated changing our plans for vacation because we were trying to escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. We are glad we didn't.
The Tern II is an amazing property. We were all taken with the peace and quiet of the property not to mention the beauty of both the house itself and the landscape. The house is rustic and charming with room for everyone to hang out together or find their own space. The views from the windows and deck overlooking the ocean were gorgeous watching the changing tides and the abundant wildlife. Sitting out on the deck at night, I don't remember the last time I had seen so many stars.
We found the house stocked with everything we could possibly need - cooking utensils, towels and extras most rental homes don't include. The location is very convenient to the park and restaurants yet far enough away to be able to escape the crowds.
Overall, there isn't anything negative that I can say about our stay here. It made for a relaxing and memorable family vacation."
