"If you want a place where you can get directly into the mountains, this is it! From this house we hiked up the South Ridge of Cadillac Mountain, to the North Ridge - all the way on trails into Bar Harbor. We also did a nice hike that started at Sand Beach, up the Bee hive, over Gorham Mountain, to the Otter Cliffs and through a surprise shortcut path right back to our house. You can't beat this location. Not only can you get out quickly for short or long hikes, you can also hop on or off the Island Explorer Bus that stops right outside the house.
The house itself was great, too. We stayed with my parents, adult brother and our young son. Everyone had their own spacious bedroom (the photos don't quite convey how large the rooms are). The kitchen was well stocked (though the pots could use some updating and deep cleaning) and the appliances all were in good working condition. The house had lots of travel guides, maps and tourist information - so we didn't need to look anything up. The living room couches were a bit tired and saggy, but there were other adequate seating options, too. The beds were comfy and we even got a change of sheets (which was nice because we needed the flannel early in the week and the cotton sheets when it got a little warmer).
I don't view this to be negative, but some may - there was no cell phone reception. However, they have a phone there for local calls and emergencies. Honestly, I loved not being able to stay connected while I was on vacation, so it didn't bother me. The internet wi-fi was fast and reliable, so if you must...you can.
It was great to have a rental with nice towels, linens, toilet paper and basic soap supplies too. I thought the towel allotment was more than adequate, especially with the washer and dryer available.
Thanks - if we're going to Acadia next year, we'll definitely book again!"

"We stayed in this house for a week in August. The house is gorgeous, much nicer than the pictures on the website. Views are superb, especially the sunsets -- we often ate out on the deck to watch the sunset. Stars were great too, as there is very little light pollution on this part of the island. The bedrooms are roomy, and a spacious bedroom and bath on the first floor was welcome by my aging parents. Several good restaurants are nearby for takeout... not to mention some great hiking trails. Highly recommended!"

"We rented for 2 weeks. The property is clean and well stocked. Our dogs could wander without bothering anyone. Betsy was easy to reach if we needed anything. The view is awsome and there is water access for kayaks should you choose to bring them. The property is close to Bar Harbor while just a few miles from Ellsworth. When the sun shines and it is hot outside, the upstairs and porch get very warm. Window blinds would be great. I would definitely rent this again."
