Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • 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."

  • Great home in a great location!

    "When we were looking for a place to stay in Bar Harbor and found this home we were slightly concerned about the lack of recent reviews but decided to give it a try anyway. I am so glad we did! This home is in a great location close to Acadia, downtown, and hiking trails. We walked into town everyday and also hiked and biked right from the property. Since we were there at a busy time for tourist, when we did drive into town it was a challenge to find a parking space but we were always able to do so. It was so nice to come back to a quiet home after spending time in town! We had 4 adults in our party, and there was plenty of space in the home. We only cooked dinner in one evening, but we could have easily done so every night since the kitchen was so well stocked. The Barkers have many staples in the home that we have had to buy at the store when renting other places such as paper towels, toilet paper, coffee filters, spices and so on. They even left 2 cold locally brewed blueberry beers with frosted mugs in the refrigerator ready for our arrival! We had one extremely minor problem with the dryer and Mr. Barker came right over when we called. We highly recommend a trip to Bar Harbor and that you stay at the Northridge Townhouse when you are there. You will not be disappointed."

  • Great Rental Home

    "We (10 of us-5 adults/5 teenagers) just spent a week at this property and absolutely loved it. It was a perfect place for the whole family. We loved the pool, the tennis court and the waterfront views. The house was very clean, spacious and offered everything that we needed. The owners are friendly and answered any and all of the questions that we had. I would highly recommend this property to everyone."

  • Perfect!

    "The Blue Rose Cottage was exactly as described and perfect for our stay. Very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Location was great- just a short walk to everything. We had wonderful weather and were able to fully enjoy being outside. We love Bar Harbor and the park; it is such a beautiful place."
