"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”."

"We had an amazing time at this cabin! It is quiet and tucked away in a beautiful area of MDI.
The space perfectly suited the needs of our little family (2 adults, a 5 month old and a dog). All week we woke to beautiful sunrises over the water, ate breakfast at the table, and then set out to explore Acadia, Bar Harbor, Schoodic, and Southwest Harbor. We would come home at dinner time (baby goes to sleep early) and enjoyed playing cards in the peace and quiet. Then we would lay out on the nice deck and gaze at the amazing night sky. Make sure you explore the beach at different tides! We had a lot of fun looking for shells and sea glass.
The cabin had everything we needed and was clean and uncluttered. Ben was extremely quick to reply to emails and phone calls (and is super nice too).
I would definitely stay here again. I have already recommended this cabin to family and friends. Thank you for making our first family vacation a great one!"

"We found this house to be very comfortable. It is extremely close to the main street in Northeast Harbor, where there is a grocery, bakery, cafe, and plenty of shops to explore. The bus to Acadia and Bar Harbor runs right past the house. The house itself is bright and airy with high ceilings. It has a lovely deck and we ate outside several times. The beds were extremely comfortable with high quality linens. The layout is a little interesting, with one bedroom upstairs and the others downstairs, which allowed for a private hideaway. The kitchen, though smallish in terms of work surfaces, was well equipped with decent knives and ample glassware, dishes and pots/pans. The bathrooms are a bit old-fashioned (the kids got a kick out of the separate hot/cold water faucets)."

"My family and I just returned from an amazing vacation in Maine. The cottage was perfect! It had so many great details (antiques), amazing views, close to everything. It was perfectly laid out with one bedroom (1 king) upstairs and one bedroom downstairs (2 queen). A bathroom on both levels. A beautiful gas fireplace in the living room warmed the cottage on the cool June nights. Only about 15 miles to Acadia and 18 to Bar Harbor. We loved going to the park in the morning and spending our afternoons at the cottage.
My 9 and 11 year old sons dug for mussels every day and we had a huge feast later in the week.
We loved it so much we already booked for next year. Thank you Laura for sharing such a amazing place!"
