  • Perfect home for our family...wonderful vacation!

    "This home was just perfect for our family of 8. We had plenty of room to spread out and the property was very private. The home was well appointed with all of the things you need to enjoy a vacation: Guides, maps, hiking/biking books, beach toys, basement for our bikes. We cooked 1-2 meals almost every day and the home had everything we need. The best part was how close it was to everything. You are just a few miles from the entrance to the park (Cad Mt gate) and Bar Harbor. We were able to hike/bike/explore all over the island with ease and even come back in between activities to drop people off. All and all a wonderful vacation in a wonderful home. We can't wait to be back! Thank you!!"

  • Wonderful House and a Great Vacation!

    "We really enjoyed our stay here. We were there from Saturday to Saturday (just me and my girlfriend) and the house was ideal for us. It was close to the town of Southwest Harbor but far enough away to be private. It was very comfortable and we enjoyed breakfast and coffee on the deck overlooking the harbor every morning. We hiked up Cadillac Mountain, Acadia Mountain, St. Saveur Mountain, Valley Peak, and down to Echo Lake from Beech Mountain, among other hikes and we ate ate Thurston's, Sawyer's, Beal's, Quietside Cafe, and other favorites. The house was perfectly situated for all the hiking and lobster and blueberry pie eating we liked to do. The kitchen was well equipped and made blueberry pancakes and lobster scrambled eggs, and once we boiled lobster at home. Working with Mark was an absolute pleasure. He made everything very easy for us and the house was clean and in excellent order when we arrived. We would definitely recommend this house and will stay there again."

  • The total package !

    "We're just back from our week in Southwest Harbor and we were blown away by the location of this house. The view overlooking the Bay , the dock , the ''cozyness'' of the house , it all adds up to a perfect vacation. Being there early september , we got some not so warm mornings , but the stove more than make up for this situation. We spent some good times , sitting in front of the Bay , with some ''treasure'' hunting while the tide was low ! It was our second trip to Mount Desert Island and one of the main reason we came back was the Acadia National Park. What a great place , with out of this world scenic views and all kinds of trails for all hikers. Steve , the owner , is so caring , he will make your stay a lot easier. Always available , he did , in the weeks leading to our stay , send us weekly brochure about things to do in the area. Can't ask for more ! Thank you. I will not hesitate to recommend this house , particularly if you're a nature lover."

  • Perfect location

    "My family and I enjoyed a week at this beautiful cottage by the sea! Southwest Harbor is breathtakingly beautiful, this charming home was w wonderful place to come back to at the end of a day of biking, hiking and swimming. The yard was large enough to set up games and the large front porch a great place to gather (Mosquitos were our only challenge). Bedrooms large and beds very comfortable, bathrooms have all been updated. The only drawback was the furniture in the living room, dining room. Very worn down and not suitable for 6 ft. Tall men. Also the internet service was not dependable. Other than those issues our memories of this vacation house will be treasured."
