Recent Acadia reviews

  • Paradise!

    "The house was as described..actually no. Much better! Clean, peaceful, beautiful settings and everything provided to make your stay easy and comfortable. We couldn't wait to sit out on the dock early morning and enjoy the peacefulness of the lake. We swam all the way to the nearest beach sometimes. The water is clear, fresh and clean. Just wonderful. We were there to explore Acadia NP, but ended up wanting to spent more time at the house and our "own private " lake. It's an easy 40 minute drive to Acadia, 20 minutes to supermarkets etc. Unfortunately our stay was cut short, but we will definitely return. I can't thank Candice and her husband enough for their help, kindness and thoughtfulness. Thank you!"

  • What a great retreat!!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bass Terre! This house is in a beautiful spot - a private cove with amazing ocean vistas! The grounds are well kept with lots of flowers - a comfortable deck and only one distant neighbor. The house is over 100 years old but in great condition - bathrooms, appliances and cable TV all work just fine. The bedrooms and mattresses are good and with the silence and cool night breezes, we all slept like babies! The living/dining area is spacious and all 5 adults (of varying ages) were very comfortable there. If we get back to Maine and Bass Terre some day, we will definitely take our dogs - there's a huge garage attached to the house that works if they're wet or need to be confined while you're out and about. The owners provided an excellent list of restaurants and activities that we used daily to plan our outings. Acadia National Park is the highlight and we spent several days exploring different parts of the park - including the top of Cadillac Mountain, Loop Drive along the rocky shore, the popovers at Jordan Pond and several hikes around lakes. We found Bar Harbor to be a crowded tourist trap so we wandered through some of the smaller fishing village shops and restaurants. Southwest Harbor, Somesville and Northeast Harbor are all charming villages. We highly recommend seeing Asticou Gardens! But most of all, we enjoyed returning to Bass Terre in the evening and watching the sun set."

  • Maryland

    "My husband and I stayed at the beautifully furnished cottage in Winter Harbor, Maine during our recent trip to Acadia. We chose to stay in Winter Harbor because it was away from the tourist traffic in Bar Harbor. You can take the ferry to Bar Harbor or take a drive there if you like to see the other sights. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and even has a pot to cook your lobsters in. The Winter Harbor Lobster Co-op is just down the street, where you can purchase fresh whole lobster or just the meat during the week. The cottage had the most comfortable bed, and was complete with a fluffy down comforter. There were little vases of flowers from the garden left by the bedside and on the table where we ate our meals. During the summer months there is a farmers market in town once a week, where you can purchase Maine blueberries, fresh vegetables, homemade bread, and other Maine products from the area. There is also an IGA, postoffice, art galleries, and library in town for your other needs. During our stay there was a celebration of the arts going on in town. We attended a gallery opening, and we also got to go to the final presentation of the summer's art program. It was a lovely local performance where we saw a steel drum band perform, and got to view all the art created during the summer programs. My husband and I will be returning to Winter Harbor, next time we plan on doing some kayaking. We loved our stay at the cottage in Winter Harbor."

  • Unbelievably Beautiful!

    "I don't know where to start. This home, from its setting in the Maine woods, surrounded on three sides by water, to its beautiful furnishings - most imported Italian antiques from Andrea's homeland in Italy - is absolutely amazing. The owners have thought of everything to see to their guests' comfort. The home is beautifully furnished and incredibly clean. Yet the owners have also managed to make it homey and comfortable, as well. You can tell it is their dream home because everything has been so carefully planned and thought-out. The location is great. Ten minutes from Ellsworth and 30 mins to Bar Harbor and Acadia, yet you feel like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle. We were busy sightseeing every day, but honestly I wish we had had more time just to spend a day or two relaxing at this beautiful property. We loved having our coffee in the morning in the dining/living area and watching the rainbows dance around the room from the morning sun shining through the crystal chandelier. We loved finishing our day watching the sunset from the comfortable bench the owners have placed at the edge of the woods looking out over the cove. Perfect place to share a bottle of wine while watching the sun set over the cove. The rooms are all large, open, and light-filled. Huge windows throughout the house let in the sunlight and the woods, with trees swaying and leaves fluttering in the easy sea breeze, and surrounding water, become a part of the living area. My husband and I loved laying in bed at night and looking out at the silhouettes of the woods and the stars sparkling in the night sky. It seems every detail has been taken care of. The owners are wonderful, personable, and accommodating to worth with. I almost feel like I know them now. This is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the pleasure to visit. If you want to experience the best of all worlds, the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor and surrounding towns, exploring Acadia, the inspiring Maine woods, all on the edge of the water, with all the comforts - and more - of home, this is the place you do not want to miss. My only mistake was not booking it for a longer period of time. I cannot wait to return. With many thanks to Andrea and Erika for sharing their dream home with us, I look forward to returning again in the future for a longer stay. Kindest regards to them, and assurances to other vacation seekers that you will absolutely fall in love with everything about this home."
