Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Best kept secret on Mt. Desert

    "This cabin was amazing and perfect for our family of 3. The view, the shoreline, the babbling brook, the seclusion, the creek, the "rustic cabin..where do I begin?We absolutely loved it! We felt like we were back at summer camp only in a nice log cabin with running water, hot water, electricity, comfortable beds. The bedrooms are on the creekside of the house attached to the log cabin side by a breezeway. That made it nice for those that want to sleep in to not be disturbed by the early riser. I hope we can come back again."

  • Bass Harbor Magic

    "We were 7 friends all 70 and then some. Some of us had been to Bass Harbor before and for others this was a first. The house is charming and very well equipped, beds, kitchen, washer and dryer and best of all a great porch. The owners were most helpful in suggesting not to be missed sites and restaurants. Our favorite morning spot was Common Grounds, they serve the best popovers on the island, and coffee and old fashion oatmeal...not to be missed. The house allowed each of us together spaces and private space, which was needed for a 2 week vacation with car travel. I will recommend this house to any and all who plan to visit Mt Desert Island and Arcadia National Park. During the summer there is free bus service on the island and over to Ellsworth so its possible to enjoy Seamist cottage without a car."

  • Great place to stay!

    "The cottage was clean and well stocked, convenient to the park and the owners were very nice. We explored so much of the park in such a short time. It was a fantastic place to rent for the half marathon and a short walk from the finish line. There a few hikes in Acadia within a mile or two. Southwest Harbor is a short walk. Eagle Lake and the Cadillac entrance to the park loop road are a short drive (10 miles?)."

  • FAMILY GATHERING

    "We have vacationed all over the beautiful Maine coast many times over the past 30 years. Mt. Desert Island is our particular favorite due to the astounding beauty, tranquility, wildlife viewing, and diverse activities available. My working life has enabled me to visit coastal Maine many times, so Maine always stands foremost in my memory when choosing a vacation destination.This year we required a very special location so our far flung family could gather together. On paper FJORD HOME met every requirement we envisioned. The reality is that FJORD HOME exceeded all our expectations. It is the perfect vacation home. The owner could not be more gracious and accommodating. The house is outfitted with every amenity. The other reviews on this site mention many of the outdoor opportunities available, and they are all seconded. However one one could spend a week alone simply exploring the hiking trails in Acadia NP, not to mention the cycling available on the 55 miles on “carriage roads”."
