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."

  • Beautiful and quiet

    "We just spent several glorious days here, same time as last year. This was a trip worth repeating in order to run the Mt. Desert Island Marathon again. We saw a rather large buck twice, each time out by the road in the area of the apple trees along the split rail fence. We enjoyed taking the canoe out on Hodgdon Pond and paddling around. We discovered a waterfall on the Acadia Park side of the pond and took a little hike in that area. - how stunning! And what a beautiful place to wallk to. So many little pathways and clearing and ponds to explore. If the night sky is clear, the stars are giant saucers splattered just inches above the cottage ) or so it seems). I think the best part is the crisp pine-scented air combined with the autumn kaleidoscope of colors.. A feast for the senses. Ray and Laura from Texas and Noreen from Pennsylvania"

  • Fall trip to Acadia

    "This was a prefect property for us. The location is terrific for accessing MDI and Bar Harbor as it is located right on route 3. The view out the back is very serene - saw deer on most mornings and evenings - and it is very quiet. The home has everything you need, was very clean and extremely well organized. It was actually so comfortable, we bought fresh fish in Bar Harbor most nights and ate at home. Not that we used it much but the cable TV is very convenient and the Wi-Fi worked great. Would highly recommend this to a couple who is looking for a very comfortable base to explore Acadia from."

  • Very clean charming waterfront home that fit our family well. Pet Friendly too!

    "We loved all the room to spread out and the large yard for our dog to be able to run and get some exercise too! The house is very clean and well stocked. We found everything we needed. There are two bedrooms upstairs and one bath. Downstairs is another bath, mud room, laundry room, living room/dining and a den. The furniture is comfortable and everything makes you feel right at home in "Maine". The only reason this didn't get a perfect 5 star rating from us was because of the closeness to the slightly busy street and the noise you hear very early in the AM from the lobster boats/fisherman. This is of no fault of the house or owner - and may not bother many. But, for us as light sleepers we had a few rough spots in our sleep. The views from the dining room and deck are amazing - we had a couple gorgeous sunsets similar the picture posted above. We brought high end kayaks and felt ok about leaving them beside the garage. It was great to load the kayak right into the harbor at the edge of the lawn- very convenient. We kayaked once at Echo lake but, mostly just paddled throughout the harbor and explored a little island. There a few restaurants down the street in 'town' and if you cross the harbor you find Thurstons- this place proved to be WAY too busy for us as many were lined up outside - not a good choice if you have a child... Southwest harbor a quick 10 min drive away has many more restaurants. We brought our dog along and he loved laying on the deck - there was a handy hose near the deck which was useful to wash the dog after a swim or a walk along the shore. Do be prepared for bugs - we used bug spray almost every night and I brought a citronella candle which we used as well. The shore is tidal and you can walk out quite a distance - we walked the shore daily and found many "treasures". My son became addicted to finding "sea glass" - I had to explain that the broken fresh glass is just trash and to look for only the frosted kind... let's just say we had a lot of "extra" LOL - but, my one of favorite things to do since being a child and visiting my grandparents in Searsport... If you want to explore Acadia and the Down East - but don't want the hussle bussle of Bar Harbor then this would be a good option for you. We prefer quite nights and peaceful surroundings. Paul, the owner is very accommodating and very quick with any questions/concerns you may have. Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!"
