"Home away from Home"
"We had a fabulous week here at Head of the Harbor Overlook! Your lovely cottage more than lived up to our expectations! It's in a great location and we found it very clean and comfortable. The views were great and the house amenities were very thoughtful. It really was a "home away from home"!"

"Open floor plan allows you to watch the changing tides from many rooms. The cottage was perfect for our family's stay - a clean, nice size place with a relatively well stocked kitchen. The kids were thrilled to see a bald eagle flying about most mornings. Bass Harbor Lighthouse is just down the road, as are some great kid-friendly hikes. We enjoyed getting to know the merchants in Southwest Harbor. Most of what we needed was here. Thanks for a wonderful vacation."

"We needed a quiet, relaxing get away from our busy schedules and city life. Ebb Tide was the perfect and serene vacation rental. The location is perfect for cooking, reading, and viewing the water from the adirondack chairs. The pictures don't do it justice.
We were able to bring our dog, Riley, and the rental was extremely dog friendly. He loved the water!
The owners were extremely friendly and helpful whenever we needed anything- from Benadryl for my bee sting to suggestions for hiking.
We had the best vacation possible and highly recommend this vacation rental!"

"Pictures represent home well. Owner is easy tp work with, and wants you to enjoy your stay. Great location to see all of MDI, and a straight shot into Ellsworth.
Plenty of parking, house is spotless. Loved the fireplace (wood provided) and pool table. Kitchen was well stocked, included all basics, plus a great BUNN coffeemaker! Nice yard with fire pit and charcoal grill. Great home to share with friends or family!
Two possible concerns
1. 3 of the bedrooms are upstairs, but only one bath - which is IN one of the bedrooms. So the others must use the bath on the first floor.
2. There are multiple steps, 1/2 steps, and double steps throughout the house.
Both of these could be a non-issue depending upon the make up of your group -those who are physically handicapped, or young toddlers could have issues. Otherwise, no concerns.
We would rent this home again, and can easily recommend it to others.
It was a pleasure staying here - thank you for sharing it."
