"The pictures of the interior of the Boat House were very accurate. The remodel of the home was tastefully done and up to date. The views of the harbor from the living room were spectacular. We stayed at the end of the season and it was a bit chilly. The heating system was a bit of an issue as the pipes banged at night which interrupted our sleep. We also new it was a working harbor but if you were a light sleeper the fishermen and boats would wake you up early in the morning. We are early risers so that was not an issue. The owners should also let guests know that there is a room attached to the house that harbor/marina folks use. That did startle us when we first heard people in the room. Some other improvements would be to update the linens and towels, connect tv to cable in the bed room , a vacuum cleaner, and to leave instructions on how to use the VCR.
Aside from the few things we mentioned it was a nice place to stay."

"We love Bar Harbor and have been going there for the past 40 or so years. This time our stay was one of the most enjoyable ever. DeeDee is the perfect hostess - a friendly face to welcome us and accommodating in every aspect. Her rental apartment was everything we hoped it would be. All the comforts of home, ideal location and immaculate. What a joy to be able to walk into town and not hunt for a parking space! We look forward to our next vacation and our Home Away from Home on Ledgelawn!"

"We rented Edgehill for a week and hosted our wedding here. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful area on the Maine coast. We truly were able to give our guests a real Maine experience with a pig roast, live band and party in the barn, and campfires. The house comfortably slept almost 20 friends and family, including two infants. The house has a gorgeous porch, a sleeping porch, a nature path leading to a scenic pond, a huge barn fitting for a party or wedding reception, and a beautiful backyard complete with a campfire pit that's perfect for yard games. Our only complaints from our guests were that the beds were quite uncomfortable and while the house does sleep lots of people, there are only two toilets.
The owner was professional, prompt with communication and questions, flexible, and friendly.
I would highly recommend this site for a truly rustic Maine farmhouse/barm wedding or vacation."

"My family and I stayed at this house in beautiful Prospect Harbor this past 2014 season. We had a great time, as we love our Maine vacations. This house was just the right size for our family of 4. It is nice and open in the main living area with a beautiful view of the lighthouse at Prospect Harbor. This is one of our favorite locations in Maine. We felt right at home and so comfortable! We saw an eagle, osprey (up close!), deer, and even a porcupine which climbed a tree and took a nice long nap. At dark, be sure to stargaze out on the deck for a fantastic view of the stars.
The owner of the house was great to deal with. Any time we had contact before and after our stay, our emails or phone calls were answered promptly. The house was clean and ready for our visit.
We would recommend this property for a small family, or up to 6 people would be a comfortable fit. The rocky shoreline at the property was fun to explore! There are plenty of other sights to see and places to visit that are close by. One of the favorites is Schoodic Point where the ocean meets the huge Maine rocky coastline. There are lots of trails to hike there, as well as at Acadia National Park. And leave lots of time for relaxing!
