"The NortherNest was absolutely amazing! From the moment we arrived, as we looked out at the beautiful ocean, we were completely taken with the property. The house is a sweet, tucked away treasure! The cove in which the house sits is magnificent and a piece of heaven. We boiled crab and clams on the beach, kayaked for hours on end, played horseshoes, looked for sea shells, talked and reconnected as a family. After a long day of hiking in close by Acadia, we would sit on the beach with a glass of wine and truly relax in the quiet serenity. Thank you for all the games in the closet, they provided hours of fun for our family. The house is well stocked and I could always find the items I needed for cooking. We even had the privilege of cutting some greens from the garden for wonderful salads. We hated to leave and even went to the beach for one last look before we drove away. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us!"

"All four of us agree that this is the one! We were very comfortable in this house with plenty of space to sleep, relax and unpack. Each bedroom had tons of drawer and closet space with more hangers than you'll know what to do with! The kitchen was wonderful and had everything we needed and more and we all found the window seats (there are three of them in three different rooms) a nice place to escape to read a book, play on an iPad or have a glass of wine while unwinding from the day's adventures. We walked into town most nights for dinner and to pick up supplies for the next day. It was nice to be so close yet hear no road or downtown noises at the house.
It was hot on MDI during our vacation week so most days we could be found at Sand Beach, building sand fortresses, jumping the waves and making new friends. We tried a new hike this summer called Ship Harbor. It was an easy hike compared to what we normally do but we all enjoyed it. Per the kids request (ages 12 and 9) we went back to the family friendly show at ImprovAcadia in Bar Harbor again this year. The comedians are excellent and since the show is based on audience participation, it is different each time. We highly recommend it to all ages!
Gina, the owner, has provided everything you need to make your stay pretty awesome. She also provided us with contact numbers in case there was a problem with the house. We didn't have to use them at all but it's comforting to know help is close by if you need it."

"This was probably my most enjoyable vacation! All my children and both my grandchildren were there. The house was so close to Bar Harbor, Acadia and many other fun things to do! We had the best time and the house was amazing. My husband and son had so much fun kayaking and the children and I had a great time looking for sea glass and shells!"

"When I say that this was a dream cabin, I mean it. I road trip alone, so was looking for something practical and comfortable, yet secluded and scenic. This cabin went above and beyond.
The beds were comfortable, and everything in the kitchen worked perfectly. Having a washer and dryer was awesome...I used it a few times when I got dirty on hikes.
It's about 100 steps from the water, and having a private beach is absolutely incredible. I ended each night by having a beer on the dock. It was perfect. Also, you're on the "quiet side" of the island, which is really nice, as Bar Harbor can get NUTS during the weekends and summer months.
Ben was incredibly helpful and got back to me quickly. The price can't be beat.
I would HIGHLY recommend getting this cabin. When I come back to Maine, I can't imagine staying anywhere else."
