Superb Bar Harbor rental
"This is a superb holiday home.
Dee Dee is the most charming and welcoming of owners, and the property itself is maintained to the highest possible standards. Dee Dee's attention to detail is fantastic.
She goes the extra mile to ensure that your stay will be perfect.
The house is within a 5 minute walk of all of the town's facilities - very convenient.
The town of Bar Harbor is a must see for New England visitors. The town itself is absolutely charming - and has a "real" feel to it. The Acadia National Park next to Bar Harbor is one of America's real national treasures and should not be missed on any account. It is magnificent and stunningly beautiful.
If you stay here you will, like us, have a fantastic and wholly memorable vacation. Do not miss it . Dee Dee's "Home from Home" is the perfect base for your stay.
We loved it and have no hesitation in recommending it wholeheartedly to others."

"My husband and I enjoyed staying in this cozy, comfy, clean and well appointed apartment. The photos represent the the cottage accurately and the bedroom upstairs is bright with a skylight over the comfortable bed that we enjoyed for fresh air and a birds eye view of the fall foliage. There was plenty of closet and drawer space to settle in for the week. The cottage is in a quiet, wooded setting removed from the bustle of Bar Harbor. We cooked frequently and found all we needed. Loved soaking in the jet whirlpool tub at the end of those cliff hikes. Soothed both the nerves and the back. I had the pleasure of meeting Robin. She was accommodating while respecting privacy. Our email correspondences prior to arrival and the on-site literature were so helpful in exploring and enjoying the area. If we return to that area we would definitely reserve the Seamist again. The cottage is perfect for two."

"We stayed here with our two young children for a week while exploring Acadia and Bar Harbor for the first time. The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean, and very comfortable -- perfect for either a family or a couple looking for a get-away. The small garden and balcony are also very charming, and the neighbors are friendly (as are the owners). But most importantly, the location cannot be beat. Even with young children, we walked into town several times a day. Wonderful restaurants are close by (as are the farmer's market, playgrounds, etc.). The location is also a great base for exploring Acadia. We definitely plan to stay here again!"

"My husband and I were celebrating our 32nd anniversary and booked the delightful "Safe Harbor" cottage. We couldn't have been more pleased. It's beautifully decorated, very clean and nicely appointed, and the view of picturesque Southwest Harbor is wonderful. We spent a lot of time in those adirondack chairs in the pictures just watching the comings and goings of the lobster boats and sailboats…it never got old! The location is also very convenient to the shops and restaurants of the village of Southwest Harbor. It is very close to the road, but since this is "The Quiet Side" of Mt. Desert, it was never a problem for us. Christie, the owner was very nice and accommodating…the internet wasn't working when we got there so we called her. She had it fixed the next morning. We would love to go back again soon!"
