"We had a great time-it was sunny and pleasant the whole week. There were 8 of us, including our 3 adult children and their significant others. The house was lovely, just like the photos and very clean. The kitchen was quite nice and easy to use. The circulator bus into Bar Harbor stops across from the house and runs every 30 mins (every 15 afte 3 pm), but we also walked into town. Note that you must walk through the bunkbed room from the large bedroom into the hallway. But we expected this and it wasn't an issue. It was one of the best vacations we've ever had and made even better by staying at Highbrook."

"We stayed at Hodgon Pond Farm during mid-June and had a wonderful experience. We were an extended-family of eight ranging in age from 1 1/2 years to 70 years, and each one of us had a blast. Everyone got out in the canoes and kayaks to take in the beautiful views and wildlife. The kiddos loved hanging out in the play area near the house, listening to the bullfrogs and pretending to be pirates. We loved being on the quiet side of the island, while also finding it easy to head to Echo Lake, Cadillac Mountain, and Jordan's Pond House. We'll be back, for sure, but it won't come quickly enough for my kiddos."

"cant say enough what a great time we had here. The four bedroom four bath home gave our group of 7 plenty of space. The common areas were open and inviting with great views of the lake and forest. The beautiful decks and gas grill were a plus. We used the canoe for great views of the pond. A lot of fun. The close proximity to park trails made it easy to hike and come home for lunch. Definitely recommend this place and can't wait to come back!"

"If you want a place where you can get directly into the mountains, this is it! From this house we hiked up the South Ridge of Cadillac Mountain, to the North Ridge - all the way on trails into Bar Harbor. We also did a nice hike that started at Sand Beach, up the Bee hive, over Gorham Mountain, to the Otter Cliffs and through a surprise shortcut path right back to our house. You can't beat this location. Not only can you get out quickly for short or long hikes, you can also hop on or off the Island Explorer Bus that stops right outside the house.
The house itself was great, too. We stayed with my parents, adult brother and our young son. Everyone had their own spacious bedroom (the photos don't quite convey how large the rooms are). The kitchen was well stocked (though the pots could use some updating and deep cleaning) and the appliances all were in good working condition. The house had lots of travel guides, maps and tourist information - so we didn't need to look anything up. The living room couches were a bit tired and saggy, but there were other adequate seating options, too. The beds were comfy and we even got a change of sheets (which was nice because we needed the flannel early in the week and the cotton sheets when it got a little warmer).
I don't view this to be negative, but some may - there was no cell phone reception. However, they have a phone there for local calls and emergencies. Honestly, I loved not being able to stay connected while I was on vacation, so it didn't bother me. The internet wi-fi was fast and reliable, so if you must...you can.
It was great to have a rental with nice towels, linens, toilet paper and basic soap supplies too. I thought the towel allotment was more than adequate, especially with the washer and dryer available.
Thanks - if we're going to Acadia next year, we'll definitely book again!"
