"My wife and I spent a week with two other couples. The house is spacious with plenty of privacy, with common areas nice and open. The new bathroom gives everyone access to their own (except for showering.) Plenty of deck space and lawn in the back, and access to the bay is great.
We biked, hiked, and kayak during our stay, and the house is close enough to Bar Harbor and NP, but far enough away to be away from the tourist hustle and bustle. While kayaking from the house we saw seals, a heron, an eagle, and an osprey (while catching fish!)
The house has a well-stocked kitchen, and is spotless. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer."

"To start we were a group of four adults who are active and in our late 40's early 50's. We also brought our two dogs. The photos do not do this beautiful home enough justice. The kitchen if fully stocked and very user friendly to cook and prepare meals in. The open floor plan is awesome. The location is perfect. An easy drive to Acadia national park, and stores to shop at. Bar Harbor is 25 minutes away, but the drive is nice. The point being it is quiet and away from it all, but close enough to everything to enjoy. The fenced in yard is fantastic for the dogs. The views from the back porch are awe inspiring. We rented Kayaks for three days from Scotty's rental. They deliver and pick up right to the home. The owner is very accommodating and easy to reach and contact. Do yourself a huge favor and don't pass on this house. Some may want to be closer to the park or one of the Harbors, but the views and night time star gazing from here cannot be beat. The washer and dryer were also a big plus as we were able to pack lighter. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Wings Cottage."

"The NortherNest was absolutely amazing! From the moment we arrived, as we looked out at the beautiful ocean, we were completely taken with the property. The house is a sweet, tucked away treasure! The cove in which the house sits is magnificent and a piece of heaven. We boiled crab and clams on the beach, kayaked for hours on end, played horseshoes, looked for sea shells, talked and reconnected as a family. After a long day of hiking in close by Acadia, we would sit on the beach with a glass of wine and truly relax in the quiet serenity. Thank you for all the games in the closet, they provided hours of fun for our family. The house is well stocked and I could always find the items I needed for cooking. We even had the privilege of cutting some greens from the garden for wonderful salads. We hated to leave and even went to the beach for one last look before we drove away. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us!"

"This was our first visit to Maine. We were thrilled with the amazing view of the water and easy access for kayaking! (We were right across from several islands to explore) We spent most nights outside enjoying the view on the very cozy outdoor furniture next to the fire. The kitchen was well equipped with anything and everything you would need. High end cookwear and knife set! (We are from New Orleans so we like a good kitchen to cook in). The owner was easy to reach when we had a minor issue. The barn at Mainstay was fabulous."
