Recent Mount Desert Island reviews
"We were 2 60-somethings and 3 young adults. We knew Mount Desert Island from previous weekend trips to Maine, but we'd always stayed in a hotel in Bar Harbor. This was a much better plan. The house was perfect for us. We spent our trip hiking in Acadia. So happy to be away from the tourist crush in Bar Harbor, yet within an easy drive of the park and all of Mount Desert's restaurants. The layout of good kitchen plus dining and living areas meant we had plenty of space to hang out together."

"I could not have found a more perfect location and accommodation than this one in Southwest Harbor! The cabin was exactly what I was looking for in a true Maine cabin; rustic with views but with every conceivable convenience that you could ask for. I could not have been happier! Southwest Harbor is gorgeous, quiet but with enough shops and restaurants to satisfy any guest. The cabin has plenty of room and the owners made sure that every need is anticipated and satisfied. The kitchen is well stocked, the cabin was immaculate, the wood burning stove was easy to use and provided a lot of ambience. The views from inside and from the porch were magnificent! Acadia National Park is a treasure. My only regret is not having enough time to do it all!"

"We arrived on Sunday evening and could not have been more excited about our drive to Bass Harbor. Our vacation rental was located in a large historic home owned by Barb and Bill Evans. The house was constructed in the mid 1800's. The home is been sectioned off converting the back half into its own private living quarters. This charming rental has a very large kitchen, two bedrooms, two baths, living and laundry room. The rental is complete with wifi and cable tv. The best asset of the home are the owners Barb and Bill Evans. Barb and Bill have been living at their summer home for the past 27 years. They have a wealth of knowledge about the local establishments and historic parts of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia. Fresh lobsters can be purchased across the street, and if you need help, Bill graciously volunteers his time to show you how to prepare them. Bass Harbor is a beautiful, picturesque harbor town. As you look out across the bay you see what you have always imagined....lobster boats, lobster buoys, sailboats, and boat docks. The village homes are complimented by landscaping arrangements full of a vast variety of delightful wild flowers. Across the harbor you can see the town of Bernard nestled on a hill displaying it's own small town charm. The best thing about Bass Harbor is that it is removed from all of the hustle and bustle found in the other harbor town communities on Mt. Desert Island. It is so much more relaxing than having to deal with the traffic and commercialism found in the nearby towns. After you have had a day out touring Acadia National Park, Bass Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor you can come back to Barb and Bill Evan's rental for a relaxing evening, take a walk around the bay, or eat at the Seafood Katch. I would not stay anywhere else....hoping to return for another great vacation!"

"We traveled there with my 1.5yr old son and had a great time. We spent most days exploring different parts of Acadia National Park and the location was perfect for this. It was also nice to be in a quiet and tucked away area from the busy Bar Harbor (lots of cruise ships!). We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the bay and lobster boil at the rental. The kitchen is small but well stocked with anything you could need. We did have a couple minor issues with the cottage after arrival, but the owner was super responsive and gracious. We highly recommend this cottage!"
