Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Perfect little cottage!

    "My husband and I were celebrating our 32nd anniversary and booked the delightful "Safe Harbor" cottage. We couldn't have been more pleased. It's beautifully decorated, very clean and nicely appointed, and the view of picturesque Southwest Harbor is wonderful. We spent a lot of time in those adirondack chairs in the pictures just watching the comings and goings of the lobster boats and sailboats…it never got old! The location is also very convenient to the shops and restaurants of the village of Southwest Harbor. It is very close to the road, but since this is "The Quiet Side" of Mt. Desert, it was never a problem for us. Christie, the owner was very nice and accommodating…the internet wasn't working when we got there so we called her. She had it fixed the next morning. We would love to go back again soon!"

  • 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”."

  • Great home in a great location!

    "When we were looking for a place to stay in Bar Harbor and found this home we were slightly concerned about the lack of recent reviews but decided to give it a try anyway. I am so glad we did! This home is in a great location close to Acadia, downtown, and hiking trails. We walked into town everyday and also hiked and biked right from the property. Since we were there at a busy time for tourist, when we did drive into town it was a challenge to find a parking space but we were always able to do so. It was so nice to come back to a quiet home after spending time in town! We had 4 adults in our party, and there was plenty of space in the home. We only cooked dinner in one evening, but we could have easily done so every night since the kitchen was so well stocked. The Barkers have many staples in the home that we have had to buy at the store when renting other places such as paper towels, toilet paper, coffee filters, spices and so on. They even left 2 cold locally brewed blueberry beers with frosted mugs in the refrigerator ready for our arrival! We had one extremely minor problem with the dryer and Mr. Barker came right over when we called. We highly recommend a trip to Bar Harbor and that you stay at the Northridge Townhouse when you are there. You will not be disappointed."

  • Great Cottage!!!

    "Owners friendly and helpful with first stay in MDI. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, near hikes, Acadia Park, and short walk to town. Plan on staying here again."
