No regrets - this one is a winner!
"There are so many wonderful things to say about Diamond Rock! The 2 master suites and 3 1/2 bathrooms were perfect for the 5 of us (2 couples & our single 25 year old daughter) and there were 2 bedrooms to spare! The natural light that fills this house was wonderful! This beautiful home is spacious - giving the early risers a place to sip their coffee & talk without waking the others. The air conditioning was a welcome amenity! Living room had plenty of seating for the 5 of us. We put the game table to good use in the evening and had plenty of room around the dining room table to eat and plan the days excursion. Loved the fact that the kitchen was open to the living room so no one was excluded from conversations. Quality built home (wood trim warm & inviting), tastefully decorated, very clean, extra pillows & blankets, kitchen had all the essentials, and property well maintained. The washer & dryer high quality & looked new, centrally located to all bedrooms. House surrounded by beautiful trees but you can still see the ocean. Upper deck wraps around & lower deck has a clothesline. Such a quiet location - totally relaxing! Appreciated the wireless, especially when our security alarm went off at home - we were able to logon right away to see which sensor went off. The bedrooms are spacious - so nice to be able to unpack & have room to move around. The whole house is layed out so well! This home is in a great location - secluded but close to downtown southwest harbor & a short drive to Bar Harbor. The owner gave timely replies to questions and made many great recommendations for grocery shopping, dining and activities - a huge & much appreciated help to us as first timers to MDI. Two bouqets of fresh flowers greeted us when we walked in & we enjoyed them all week. The weather was wonderful every day we were in town so we weren't 'home' much but had it rained we would have been quite comfortable lounging around the house and would have used the TV and DVD player. It is without reservation we recommend Diamond Rock to you!"

"My sister's family and ours stayed at Windiana for the week and could not have had a nicer time. The weather was perfect - warm sunny days and cool starry nights. Hiking, kayaking, and eating at the wonderful nearby restaurants made for a memorable week. Loons, eagles, and jumping fish everywhere. The owner made sure we had everything we needed and provided us with great ideas for things to do and places to go. I would go back in a minute!"

"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!"

"Our family recently rented the Hetzer House and we could not have been happier. The house was everything we hoped for and the layout was perfect (one note is that one bedroom is accessible through another – wasn’t a problem for us). In addition the cleaning crew did an amazing job and the house was spotless. Although we didn't have the best weather the area was beautiful and during the rainy times we had plenty to do in the house (Internet, board games, books, DVD/VHS movies)! Our kids (age 1 and 3) loved the baskets of toys and kid books - such an unexpected surprise! Tracy was awesome to work with and was very responsive. We would definitely rent this house again when we return to Acadia. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"
