Couldn't have asked for more!
"We were first timers to Maine and Acadia. We had heard from many people we know about the crowds in the park. Initially, we debated changing our plans for vacation because we were trying to escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. We are glad we didn't.
The Tern II is an amazing property. We were all taken with the peace and quiet of the property not to mention the beauty of both the house itself and the landscape. The house is rustic and charming with room for everyone to hang out together or find their own space. The views from the windows and deck overlooking the ocean were gorgeous watching the changing tides and the abundant wildlife. Sitting out on the deck at night, I don't remember the last time I had seen so many stars.
We found the house stocked with everything we could possibly need - cooking utensils, towels and extras most rental homes don't include. The location is very convenient to the park and restaurants yet far enough away to be able to escape the crowds.
Overall, there isn't anything negative that I can say about our stay here. It made for a relaxing and memorable family vacation."

"My husband and I spent a week at the Knollette and it was absolutely perfect. The house itself is very well-appointed - comfortable, attractive, cozy, with everything we needed. It was a great place to come home to after canoeing, hiking, and eating lobster (LOTS of lobster). The size and space were perfect for the two of us and all our gear (including bike and canoe). And the location is spot on. The house itself, located in a wooded section of a dead-end road near the causeway, feels very private, but it is within easy walking distance of Beal's Lobster Pier (did I mention lobster?) as well as the great restaurants in Southwest Harbor. It was close to all the places we wanted to hike and paddle, and the ability to walk to town for dinner and ice cream made every evening so relaxing. Really, the perfect vacation rental."

"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!"

"It was a week in paradise. The weather was beautiful, the privacy undisturbed. The calm waters of the pond were so inviting that I swam a couple of times a day. Beautiful scenery, a lot of places to visit on the Mount Desert Island, the land of Acadia national park. Nice local gift galleries and shops. The cottage itself is cozy and comfortable, has everything you need for your getaway in terms of the household items. We loved the wood stove and the grill outside on the patio. I especially loved the hammock for reading my novel, so perfectly positioned to catch the afternoon sun."
