"Acadia has always been one of my favorite places, so it was a treat to bring my family for their first visit. Northeast Harbor has just the right balance of quietness, quaintness, friendliness, and ease of living after spending days exploring and hiking. The park and the other side of the island were both easily accessible. Town is just a couple of blocks away with everything you need, including a couple of places with great food and baked goods. The larger grocery store in Bar Harbor is only 15 minutes away. This brightly colored, comfortable and well-equipped cottage was the perfect place to call home. We loved the timber framing, the large kitchen, the spacious rooms, and especially the covered porch & outdoor eating area where we could linger over breakfast and morning coffee. The owners, who were onsite, were extremely hospitable and helpful with anything we needed, including recommendations for places a little off the beaten path. Many thanks to the owners for making our visit to Acadia such a special one with their hospitality and friendship. We hope to be back for a longer visit next time!"

"It was delightful staying at this real (but fully renovated) farmhouse! It became home base for our week on MDI. Water Signs was meticulously organized and stocked with everything a couple - or large family - could ever want or need. It's prime location afforded us the ability to travel anywhere on the island and in Acadia in 20 minutes. Legendary Abel's Lobster Pound is just steps down the road and to be visited for dinner! Much thanks to the thoughtful and responsive owner. We hope to return."

"Had a wonderful stay here on relentlessly picturesque Sargent Dr. This home was the perfect quiet place to come back to after a long day of exploring Acadia National Park and the surrounding towns and lakes. Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and of course, the village of Northeast Harbor are short drives away. We were 4 adults and two boys, 8 and 10 and were perfectly comfortable. Made a few meals - even blueberry and cherry pies from scratch - and the kitchen had everything we needed. But really, the view from the deck … spectacular! We hope to return to Acadia and Maine soon, and would definitely rent this home again."

"If the wonders of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park are your idea of a great vacation then this house is the perfect base. We (my wife, me, an our two daughters in their 20's) just returned from a week there. First, Northeast Harbor is quiet, lovely, and has a magnificent harbor and marina; it's well-situated for all that MDI has to offer. Secondly, the house really could not be better, especially for a family of four: it is both stylish and quite comfortable. The owners really put a lot of care into its design and upkeep -- both the interior and the grounds. I think this may be about the best house we have ever rented and it certainly reflects the owners' obvious love for it."
