"Breathtaking even with 7 feet of snow... incredible skiing in acadia national park... This owner had the home spotless, and is the best we have ever seen on the coast in maine.. activities everywhere if you are an outdoor person... Restaurants down the way you can walk to.
This is better than the photos and the description, it is really underpriced - we have stayed at alot worse and paid more...Linens were great, soaps provided even down to the laundry soap... ( no one else does that on this island- we know we come every year).. We are making this home our new found stop. The owners went above and beyond."

It was ‘Maine-ly’ about being together…and celebrating. We are grateful for the time and experience!
"It didn’t take us long to decide on a destination, Acadia National Park rose to the top of the list almost immediately. From all of our reading and research, it seemed to offer so many hiking and exploring opportunities and (even though it would take a while) some of us could drive. Finally, we would have a long-awaited vacation with our grown children—and we had a lot to celebrate. For this momentous occasion, we wanted a truly special place to stay…Devilstone Carriage/Guesthouse offered that! The VRBO description items that caught our attention instantly were “3 king-size beds, 4 baths, and short walk to town”—we would all have a commodious space and we could walk when we wanted to dine out. Although it sounded quite inviting, since we had never been to Bar Harbor we did not fully appreciate the “Shorepath seating”…we do now! Although one of us bicycled at times, we did need a car to travel the short distance to Acadia each day. (The free Island Explorer bus had not started running yet for the season.) However, we did not need all the stuff we packed (we hadn’t been on a ‘road trip’ in a while) because our home for the week was as “beautifully furnished and fully equipped” as described. We did not have the pleasure of meeting John, the owner, in person—but at every turn we felt his kind and gracious care. Before our visit he was patient and helpful as we pinned down many details. From the moment we stepped into his home—heard the melodious music and found the delicious food items he provided to get us started—we felt greeted and welcome. Through many strategically placed notes, John seemed to anticipate our questions. The written information and suggestions added to our ease and comfort. We also appreciated and took advantage of his restaurant recommendations—and agree they are great! In closing, we will offer this—in case the words “very private” didn’t pop out when you read the description. All around us there were things to do and see. We packed a lot of exhausting, exhilarating activity into each day as we visited Acadia National Park and in the evening the town of Bar Harbor is bustling with its many restaurants and shops. Still…in the morning when we would wake to the song sparrow or walk a few steps to sip our coffee and see the sunrise from the Shorepath…or in the evening when the noises of town would fall away with each step of our short walk towards ‘home’ we truly experienced the private, secluded peace of the place. Our trip was indeed a JOY!"

"What a week! The house is located just 13 minutes by car to Bar Harbor, 10 minutes by car to the entrance to Acadia National Park. If you choose to take the bus, the pick up spot is only a short walk away from this roomy, clean, comfortable home. We really liked the home and area! Just down the road from the cape house was a great spot to kayak. We did not bring ours but wish we had. I forgot the name of the harbor / bay area but a fantastic spot for that. There were 5 adults (4 woman and 1 fella) and one small dog that embarked upon this adventure and we never felt cramped in this home. LOVE IT. Hope to go back next year! Thank you for renting us the great home. Its a keeper! Can't say enough about the beauty. If visiting, do yourself a favor and pick up an Acadia Weekly magazine... its free and you can get one at any info center. Its very informative on driving around, the bus routes and has some great activity ideas. We used it every day and because of the magazine we hiked Acadia Mountain, it was AWESOME! I hope all enjoy as much as we did."
