"The NortherNest was the perfect place for our vacation. The house is close enough to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, yet far enough away to get a more private atmosphere. After a long day hiking, we were able to sit back on the deck and watch the tide come in. When it got chilly after the sun started going down, we were able to move right into the sunroom so we could continue to take in that amazing view. Even while cooking in the kitchen, you can still get a glimpse of the mountains in the distance. The views are simply breathtaking.
The views weren’t the only thing that we took advantage of while at the Nest! It was so nice to walk down to the beach and sit in the chairs and be able to stick your feet in the bay. My brave fiancé even went for a quick swim! (If you know anything about the water in Maine, it is cold!) We also used the kayaks that were on the property. This was a huge plus for us since we didn’t have to bring our own!
Our two dogs absolutely loved the deck, access to the beach, and the yummy treats that were left for them!
We truly could not have asked for a better place and we will be booking here again next summer!"

"This was our first trip to Maine, AND our first time using vrbo. I feel incredibly fortunate. The house was perfect - and right on the water. We spent so much time on the porch enjoying the sights and sounds of the harbor. The location is far enough from "all the people" yet close enough to do whatever you want to do. Acadia is about a 15 minute drive, along with Bar Harbor. It was a fantastic location to wind down and get away from the daily routine. The house is fully equipped and we had everything we needed. The owners are fantastic and just an email/call away if you have any questions. Thank you for allowing this home to be available for renters. Highly recommended!"

"Had a wonderful 3 week stay in this spacious and comfortable home near Acadia National Park. The location was quiet and secluded - but close to grocery and restaurants in Trenton and Ellsworth. The house has so much room, you can fit 8 people easily without tripping over each other. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you might need, there's a new washer/dryer and excellent wireless internet. Plenty of room in the expansive backyard with a grill for outdoor cooking and an AMAZING view. Reservations were quick, easy and comprehensive, and the owner and caretaker both checked on us throughout our stay.
The property is an easy 15-minute drive from Acadia - giving you all of the benefits without any of the crowds. I would definitely return to this rental in the future!"

"My husband, myself and my parents along with our two four legged friends stayed here for a week towards the end of September and had a wonderful, relaxing and amazing vacation. The property is simply beautiful! So peaceful, wonderful views, great access to the ocean. The home itself is also perfect, with plenty of space and everything you need right there. It is located close enough to the town of Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park to be able to see everything you would want to see and experience, while being able to enjoy your own quiet piece of paradise at the end of the day. We hated to leave after our wonderful week there, but am looking forward to hopefully being able to go back again to enjoy this beautiful property next year."
