Perfect location for hikers
"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!"

"My husband and I stayed at Waterlily Cottage for our honeymoon and it was exactly what we hoped for! The location was great, just a few minutes drive from Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor, but far enough away to relax and escape the crowds that come with downtown. We were looking for a quiet place on the water and Waterlily delivered just that! The views were wonderful, we woke up to the smell of salt air and ocean breezes every morning and had coffee on the deck before starting our day. The pool was lovely and large enough to share with the other guests. We were able to rent a kayak, have it delivered and put in right in front of the cottage. The stone beach at low tide was fun to explore and we saw plenty of wildlife right out in the bay. All in all this property was a home run for us. We will absolutely be coming back. LOVED IT!!"

"We just spent a week here and could not be more satisfied. The townhouse was absolutely spotless and very well stocked with anything you need. There was even binoculars & cooler for day trips around the island.
DeeDee is the perfect host and helped with information about the area (even cooked us bread!). If you are planning to visit Bar Harbor we would give DeeDee's townhouse our highest possible rating."

"Our girls getaway was great at the Acadia Getaway House! Nice house layout, private patio and yard, super Weber grill for easy dinners after a day biking, shopping and sightseeing at Acadia National Park. The House is at the perfect location for carriage trails, entrance to Cadillac Mountain and downtown Bar Harbor - nice Catholic Church for Sunday Mass was an added bonus. Owners are easy to work with and very responsive - I would recommend this property for anyone wishing to experience the beauty of Bar Harbor and surrounding areas! It was a perfect week living in a comfortable home surrounded by nature, fresh air, nice people and as much exercise, restaurants and scenic beauty that you could handle!"
