Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Relaxing location

    "We enjoyed our stay at this clean, private, quiet apartment in a beautiful location. Bass Harbor was a short walk as were some of the National Park sites. There are beautiful views from the private beach. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. All in all, it served us well as a quiet, relaxing home base as we visited may sites on the island. We would definitely stay there again."

  • Seamist getaway

    "The Seamist cottage apartment in Bass Harbor was perfect for us. Marc responded immediately to the two times we needed help and even gave me a place to store my bicycle out of the rain. We particularly enjoyed the skylight and the Jacuzzi. It was just the right size for two people. We enjoyed hiking, biking and walks to and along the ocean. A handy grocery store was only 1.5 miles away. The apartment was equipped with all the things we needed to enjoy our 9-day visit. We visited at the height of the Autumn colors and were treated to the island at its best. Can't wait to get back."

  • Memorable Home, Memorable Vacation!

    "This home was the best! It really was everything we could want in a vacation home. The teens were having a fit about not going to the beach as usual, so they were a hard sell - but even they said this was one of the best vacations ever. Jennifer was extremely receptive to our questions (even the dumb ones). The house was located in a great spot close to Southwest Harbor. A main grocery store was at the bottom of the hill, and the town was minutes away by car. We were so glad we didn't stay in Bar Harbor - it is a lovely place, and we went there twice, but the crowds - forget it.... Southwest Harbor was quaint and had everything we needed. Good restaurants, ice cream, bike rentals and fairly close to all the places we wanted to visit on the Island. We were two families - we stuck the teens up in the bunk bedroom (top of A-frame). It wasn't until the 3rd day we realized there was a pool table in the basement! The porch which runs the length of the house was just gorgeous, looking out over the woods. There were a few homes up on our road, but you couldn't see them through the forest. The stars were amazing, especially from the hot tub. We were there the 2nd week of July and the weather was great - never had to use the AC, always a breeze... We called the house "our green cabin", but it was far from a cabin! I have done many vacation rentals over the years, and it was so refreshing to stay in a home that was really someone's vacation home - not an investment property with zero personal touches. Fun stuff we did on MDI: rented bikes and road around the ponds, having lunch at Jordan House (we timed the ride with help from bike store in SW Harbor and made reservations outside) - beautiful! We enjoyed sunset atop Cadillac Mt., after enjoying a lobster meal at one of the roadside lobster pounds (near north entrance to park). We spent an afternoon at Echo Lake for a "refreshing" swim. A special highlight was going to Sand Beach on the loop road, views were breathtaking. We took a lunch, left our stuff on the beach and hiked up and around Great Head Trail - a little challenging for some of us, but well worth it. I would highly recommend Eat a Pita restaurant for any meal in SW Harbor. My thanks to our hosts, and should we go Northeast - Downeast again, we will be sure to rent this special home."
