Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • A wonderful retreat

    "My husband and I spent a lovely week in the Chalet and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners provided everything we needed, including lobster pots and lots of dishes, cups and serving ware. Towels and blankets were plentiful. We especially enjoyed our early morning coffee on the deck watching the tide come in and the neighborhood clam diggers. The house was spacious, clean and well organized. I highly recommend this if you want a quiet, somewhat secluded place where relaxing is your top priority."

  • We hope to return!

    "We are so very pleased with the stay in Northeast Harbor just at the outskirts of Acadia National Park. The unit was very clean on arrival, more than I have seen in other holiday rental apartments and houses, which both added to our level of comfort throughout the stay and attests to the care the owner puts into the property. When there were small issues, such as running out of gas for the grill, the owner was there to replace the gas within minutes. This to me is the great benefit of renting from someone on site--it is an extra buffer to insure things go well during your too-short holiday time. The beds were comfortable and showers were never short on hot water. The kitchen was perfect for making meals for the 7 of us (two small families). The proximity to the back door of Acadia both gets you to the park easily and also keeps you away from the busier front entrance on the Bar Harbor side of the park. Northeast Harbor provides all the basics you need for a good stay, and you are about a 10-15 mile ride from larger grocery stores. There is an elementary school across the street with a playground, baseball and soccer fields, great for running around at the end of the day of you have kids and with very little traffic at night, again perfect to enjoy the peace and quiet of the area yet close to so many activities. It could not have been a more pleasant stay. We look forward to coming back!"

  • SIMPLY PERFECTION!

    "If you are searching for a spectacular and comfortable home with an EXCEPTIONAL view, search no further because you have found it! As the previous reviewer stated, the pictures of this "beautiful, upscale home can't capture the delight of being there" is spot on. This beautiful home has everything you are looking for: a beautiful view that overlooks Southwest Harbor; a gorgeous backyard, deck and screened in porch; a tastefully decorated interior first floor with a gorgeous, fully equipped modern kitchen, hardwood floors and a master bedroom that offers a comfortable bed, wonderful master bath and French doors to the screened in porch. (Just a small bit of advice, check the dryer downstairs if you don't find many dish and bathroom towels. We thought we would have to go and buy some towels but not the case. Housekeeping must have forgotten about the last load of laundry.) It was so tranquil to watch the lobster boats in the morning from bed. It truly doesn't get any better than that. The upstairs is just as beautiful with two large bedrooms and is carpeted. We absolutely loved spending time out on the deck that offered comfortable outdoor furniture and a large heating lamp. Nothing better than enjoying our breakfast and in the evening, appetizers and wine, listening to the water lap over the rocks to the shore. Whatever you are hoping for in a rental home, this home accommodates. Because we were in Acadia at the beginning of Sept, there was a full moon, and the view was amazing! We also had the pleasure of having a nightly evening walkthrough by a Mama deer and her baby and were thrilled when a bald eagle perched right on the backyard rocks to have its morning breakfast! As mentioned, this home is in Southwest Harbor but it was not a far ride to Bar Harbor or the Park. Actually, it gives you an opportunity to see more of the island by having to drive to key viewing spots at the Park. Also, because we visited Acadia in early September, Bar Harbor was not overly crowded, which was great. There is so much to do and see that we will go back to Acadia. The weather was perfect and the house as the review title states, "Simply Perfection"."

  • A Great Second Honeymoon!

    "The house is even lovelier than the pictures. It's clean, beautifully decorated with lots of windows for the beautiful views in every direction. The garden is also tastefully designed and well tended. Grocery and specialty shops are within 5 minutes. We stayed an extra day and still never ran out of things to do. Bar Harbor and main Acadia is just 30 minutes away and a pleasant drive. There are Acadia attractions right in Southwest Harbor about 10 minutes away. The Island Explorer bus service has a stop a block away. Great restaurants (Beals) are within walking distance. It was interesting to watch the fishing boats come in and out of the harbor. The sunsets are viewable from the patio or the dock. Would rate this rental 6 stars if possible."
