Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Great Family Reunion

    "This lovely house afforded our family a great opportunity to all be together for meals and socializing. There were 17 of us…adults and grown children. During the day family members went off hiking or touring but we would get together for dinners in the huge dinning room. The house is in a very convenient location… minutes from the Park entrance at Seal Harbor and no more than 10 minutes to Jordan Pond House. The back terrace is large and has a million dollar view."

  • Pictures do Not do Justice to This Beautiful Home

    "Our family stayed at Meadowside Cottage this past week. We were in Southwest Harbor for a wedding. Over the weekend we were six adults and one grandchild with a smaller number staying on to enjoy Mr. Desert Island the rest of the time. This house was perfect for us at all times. Looking at the vrbo pictures we were worried the house might be too small, but rented it based on one of the reviews that said the pictures do not do justice to the house. This is so true! The first floor is spacious and light filled. The living room is large with a comfortable sofa and chairs. The dining room is large and the table is comfortable and inviting. The sun room is large and lovely. The kitchen is generously equipped and easy to work in. There is a very nice separate study with easy internet access and a closet full of puzzles, games and videos. The bedrooms, up and down are well furnished. And the back yard is large with a fire pit and a generous herb, vegetable and flower garden that can be used by renters. Meadowside Cottage really is a large house that invites one to rest and relax and feel at home. And the location is convenient to so much. It is five minutes from downtown Southwest Harbor, four minutes to the Seawall Picnic Area, and 5 minutes to the beautiful Ship Harbor hike. Even though we toured Mt. Desert Island in the end we would have been happy to stay in the immediate area a enjoy the hikes We would like to recommend the Common Good Soup Kitchen that is next to the Seawall Motel just a few minutes away. This is a lovely restaurant space with good views of the seawall. A breakfast of oatmeal, coffee and delicious popovers are served from 7:30 to 11:30 on a donation basis. The proceeds go to meals for those in the community who may need food during the off season. It is a warm cheerful experience. The owners were very easy to work with. We had one small leak during a storm and called the housekeeper who lives across the street. She called the handyman who also lives nearby and he came over immediately. All were very pleasant and helpful. This is a cared about and cared for home. We have rented from vrbo owners across the country and can say this is one of the best experiences we have had."

  • September in Southwest Harbor

    "We had three couples staying at the cabin for one week the second week of September. Our objective for the week was to bike and hike the Carriage Roads in Acadia. The location of our cabin was perfect. Easy to find, felt secluded but actually not far from the interesting town of Southwest Harbor. The house was well-equipped and cheerfully and comfortably appointed. Our week had just one morning of rain and the rest of the week was cool but sunny and perfect for hiking and riding the Carriage Roads. One of our group ran every morning along the picturesque Shore Road safely. The house was well-maintained and we would unhesitantly recommend the cabin to others."

  • Loved it!

    "The location was quiet and private yet very convenient for sightseeing on the island. The house was clean, well kept, and well furnished. We have no complaints."
