Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Great home in a great location!

    "When we were looking for a place to stay in Bar Harbor and found this home we were slightly concerned about the lack of recent reviews but decided to give it a try anyway. I am so glad we did! This home is in a great location close to Acadia, downtown, and hiking trails. We walked into town everyday and also hiked and biked right from the property. Since we were there at a busy time for tourist, when we did drive into town it was a challenge to find a parking space but we were always able to do so. It was so nice to come back to a quiet home after spending time in town! We had 4 adults in our party, and there was plenty of space in the home. We only cooked dinner in one evening, but we could have easily done so every night since the kitchen was so well stocked. The Barkers have many staples in the home that we have had to buy at the store when renting other places such as paper towels, toilet paper, coffee filters, spices and so on. They even left 2 cold locally brewed blueberry beers with frosted mugs in the refrigerator ready for our arrival! We had one extremely minor problem with the dryer and Mr. Barker came right over when we called. We highly recommend a trip to Bar Harbor and that you stay at the Northridge Townhouse when you are there. You will not be disappointed."

  • Perfect in every way for our visit to Acadia National Park

    "Virginia, My wife and I never formally thanked you for our stay back in October. We had a great time, and loved staying on the quieter side of the island. Yes we were there just as the Fed closed down, but that did not impede our travel plans in the least. As a matter of fact if may have made them better. My wife and I had planned on biking the carriage trails and hiking in the park, so those flimsy barricades were no match for our trusty 2 wheels and legs. We actually felt like we had the park to ourselves (more or less). The only negative was there were no restrooms open….but that’s what the woods are for anyway…right! And we didn’t get to have popovers at the Jordan Pond house. But we did eat our lunch one day right on the pond, and the next day we ate on the lawn of the restaurant. We did do some hiking, but did not get to climb Cadillac Mountain, as it was not easy to get to from the perimeter of the park without a car. But everything else we came to do we were able to do. Lots of good restaurants in the area. We did eat at a lobster pound and had a lobster roll another day. My wife and I are not big lobster eaters, so that was more of a mission than a passion, but now we can say we did it. We did stumble upon a unique place called the Common Grounds Café. Not sure if you are familiar with it, but it is out by the seawall. It is more of a soup kitchen for the poor where visitors make donations for a modest breakfast (which did include popovers) and the proceeds feed locals during the winter months. There were some characters there and that experience will give us stories to tell for years to come. Your place is amazing! I want to affirm you for the outstanding job you did in remodeling the barn into such a lovely cozy hideaway. The use of space was superb. The finish out was first class. And the location and relaxation factor were out of this world! We could have easily stayed for two weeks and not gotten tired of Acadia, and the enjoyment of hanging around your cottage. We stay at a lot of VRBO properties and yours is definitely one of the nicest and coolest places we have stayed. I’m sorry we did not get to meet you, but by the way your place looks I can tell you are an outstanding individual. Peace and Blessings as we move into the holidays. And of course Merry Christmas!"

  • Amazing Family Celebration!

    "We enjoyed our week with both of our sons' families, which included twin thirteen year old girls and infants 9 and 13 months. This lovely home is comfortable and was equipped to accommodate all of our needs! Everything that was promised materialized including blueberries for breakfast! We could not have been happier or more pleased!"

  • Wonderful home away from home for an Mount Desert Island Vacation

    "We absolutely love it here. The accommodations are wonderful and they have everything you need. We cooked most of our meals at the Sea Heather and had everything we needed. We used the grill quite a bit and even steamed our own clams one evening. Though each room had a tv, we never turned them on once! One of the best parts of the house is the wonderful deck on the front and the amazing heated pool in the back. We also appreciated the spacious accommodations, the fun bunk room which made for a great kid friendly space. Our kids never wanted to leave the house or the property and were constantly asking to go home and go to the pool. Pool time was our kids favorite part of the whole trip. We definitely will be returning. I also will add we stayed at one of their other properties the year before and we loved it too. This year, we enjoyed having more space for our growing family."
