"We stayed at this beautiful cabin the week of August 29th-September 5th 2015. Every bit of our stay was truly wonderful, we could not have asked for more. This cabin is even more beautiful in person, just steps from the water. The rocky beach was perfect for our young children to explore the tide pools and find sea life everyday. We enjoyed watching the lobster boats every morning while having coffee on either of the two decks, the moonlight on the water in the evenings, campfires, and watching the lighthouse flicker in the distance....just perfection. There is no better location than this. Bob was so kind, welcoming and accommodating. It was so helpful when he sent a map of the area before our arrival, taking the time to suggest certain points of interest to visit. This was our first time visiting the area and we would have never known where to start there is so much to see and do! There is also a journal for visitors to write in. Our first night we had a great time reading what past guests wrote. This gave us direction with what to see and do too! Bar Harbor and the main part of Acadia is about a 45 minute drive. We spent two days exploring that area. It was beautiful, but we truly enjoyed the quiet and seclusion of the Schoodic side of Acadia and beautiful Corea, Winter Harbor and Birch Harbor. It was like finding a hidden gem, with all the beauty you can imagine, but without the crowds. Everything is taken care of here for you as a guest. I highly recommend staying here, especially if you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful place to unwind. You will not be disappointed. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we simply cannot wait to come back!"

"If you want a place where you can get directly into the mountains, this is it! From this house we hiked up the South Ridge of Cadillac Mountain, to the North Ridge - all the way on trails into Bar Harbor. We also did a nice hike that started at Sand Beach, up the Bee hive, over Gorham Mountain, to the Otter Cliffs and through a surprise shortcut path right back to our house. You can't beat this location. Not only can you get out quickly for short or long hikes, you can also hop on or off the Island Explorer Bus that stops right outside the house.
The house itself was great, too. We stayed with my parents, adult brother and our young son. Everyone had their own spacious bedroom (the photos don't quite convey how large the rooms are). The kitchen was well stocked (though the pots could use some updating and deep cleaning) and the appliances all were in good working condition. The house had lots of travel guides, maps and tourist information - so we didn't need to look anything up. The living room couches were a bit tired and saggy, but there were other adequate seating options, too. The beds were comfy and we even got a change of sheets (which was nice because we needed the flannel early in the week and the cotton sheets when it got a little warmer).
I don't view this to be negative, but some may - there was no cell phone reception. However, they have a phone there for local calls and emergencies. Honestly, I loved not being able to stay connected while I was on vacation, so it didn't bother me. The internet wi-fi was fast and reliable, so if you must...you can.
It was great to have a rental with nice towels, linens, toilet paper and basic soap supplies too. I thought the towel allotment was more than adequate, especially with the washer and dryer available.
Thanks - if we're going to Acadia next year, we'll definitely book again!"

"Had a wonderful stay here on relentlessly picturesque Sargent Dr. This home was the perfect quiet place to come back to after a long day of exploring Acadia National Park and the surrounding towns and lakes. Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and of course, the village of Northeast Harbor are short drives away. We were 4 adults and two boys, 8 and 10 and were perfectly comfortable. Made a few meals - even blueberry and cherry pies from scratch - and the kitchen had everything we needed. But really, the view from the deck … spectacular! We hope to return to Acadia and Maine soon, and would definitely rent this home again."

"We had an excellent vacation! This house is in a quiet location with everything you need. Just a short drive to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. There is plenty of room in this house for kids and adults to coexist. Our teenagers loved having the space in the basement level to play pool and watch TV. The hot tub was a plus after a long day of activities. The owners were very accommodating and great to work with.
I would highly recommend this house for your next vacation."
