"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."

"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!"

"We came to Maine to raise a barn. This cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, cozy, and friendly. We had everything that we could possibly need. I did some cooking for our crew, and had everything that I needed. The owners were very responsive, helpful, and generous. The location was just a few miles from where we were working, and close to everything else that we needed. We had a very pleasant stay.
The only reason to hesitate in giving a great review, is that others will love the place as much as we did: Then it would not be available the next time we want to stay. The pictures do not depict the true feel of this lovely home.
Thank you Audrey and Ken from us, and all of our team of timberframers.
April & Ed"

"John, Priscilla and Suze (manager) were all wonderful and very responsive and helpful.
The house is tucked away in a nice neighborhood and as other reviews mentioned, it is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. It is clean, comfortable and spacious with everything you need. Nice kitchen, great washer/dryer.
Getting to Bar Harbor can take up to 20-25 minutes with traffic during the busier times. There are wonderful hikes and interesting things to do on this side of MDI, so no need to drive to the other side all the time.
All in all, a lovely spot for a wonderful vacation!"
