"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!"

"Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique. Ce cottage est absolument parfait. Le lieu, la décoration, les activités et le design du bâtiment... Tout est très bien agencé. Le parc Acadia est juste à côté et la petite ville de Ellsworth est très sympathique avec de petits magasins. Cet endroit et ce cottage sont à recommandé.
We had a fantastic week. This cottage is absolutely perfect. The location, decor, activities and the building design... Everything is very well arrange. Acadia park is right around the corner and the small town of Ellsworth is very nice with a lot of boutique / small stores. This place and this cottage must be recommended."

"Ever changing views from the large deck on this well appointed cottage on the water! Enjoy your morning coffee as you watch the lobster boats leave to check their traps. Sailboats going by in the afternoon is a pleasant site. The Moon's silver reflection over the water at night is a stunning view and lights up the deck! Lamoine is the quiet side overlooking Acadia which is a completely different experience. We even dug huge clams in front of the cottage which were delicious! Lamoine State Park and Lamoine Beach are both less than 5 min from the cottage. WiFi always worked and kitchen had everything you needed if you like to cook! Owners were very welcoming, friendly and looking to please if you needed anything. Homemade "Cereal Muffins" greeted us upon arrival!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!!"

"Our family, looking for a last minute vacation happened upon this lovely home on VRBO. It exceeded our expectations in its setting, comfort and amenities. It made it easier that the house was well stocked with supplies and we were happy to add some of our own for future guests. The fire pit, outdoor seating, bikes and canoe are fantastic and enhanced our vacation stay. We can't wait to see the screened in porch! It took about 20 minutes to get to Bar Harbor; a pretty ride. I am just sad it took us so long to finally vacation in this area. We would highly recommend staying at Sweet Fern."
