Amazing Farmhouse for stay in Maine
"I rented this farmhouse to stay in while my husband and boys camped at Seawall with their Boyscout troop. First, the location in Southwest Harbor was great. I was minutes away from the campsite, within a mile of a grocery store, within walking distance of plenty of charming shops and restaurants. And, everything in Acadia is within easy driving distance, so the location if visiting the park is great. The farmhouse was amazing. It was exceptionally clean, the bathroom with a washer/dryer set up was the size of most bedrooms, the bedroom was big enough to walk around and had a desk to work at with free wi-fi, the living and kitchen area were also very big. Although I did not use the kitchen area, it seemed to have everything anyone would need to fix meals. The owner was readily available by email when I needed to let her know of an arrival and departure change. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. And, if I ever get back to this area of Maine, I would definitly try to book this rental."

"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!"

"This was our family's first visit to Maine and Acadia. Renting this house was the best plan we made for the trip. The quiet serenity, the wildlife, and the scenery were all amazing. The house is rustic like a cabin and well equipped like a family home. We spent our mornings watching harbor seals and identifying birds including bald eagles, osprey, loons, cormorants, various woodpeckers (including a pileated pair), kingfishers, and forest songbirds. An eagle landed in a tree right off the deck when were were eating our first breakfast. We were visited by deer and red squirrels. We hated to leave and cannot wait to return. Tern II is an enchanting place to spend a week or more. Definitely bring binoculars, even if you are not an active birder. Also: The restaurants in the small towns around the island are outstanding. Red Sky and Sips in Southwest Harbour are excellent, just to name two."

"House has real charm and can accommodate a lot of people without feeling crowded. The deck is huge and the view wonderful. Kitchen had everything one could want (including two sinks). Very comfortable. We were interested in spending time at Wildwood Stables which was very close by."
