"this place was amazing! Mark, the owner, was so helpful and great. The place was beautiful and peaceful. It was clean and very comfortable. We loved the location. Being on the backshore of the island was relaxing and very nice. Mark answered all of questions and was always there for us! It was a perfect family get away! We hope to return someday and you will be so happy if you stay here! No need for a car. We rode bikes everywhere! The owners grounds were even beautiful to explore and the beach is just a short walk. Wonderful!"

"This is a beautiful home, close to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. Very clean, comfortable, and has everything you could possibly need. Everything was as promised. Great size for two couples travelling together. Amazing views of Frenchmans' Bay from the master bedroom deck."

"My husband and I have stayed in this lovely Maine home several times over the past few years and count it among our favorite vacation destinations. The home is located in the middle of a thriving Down East town with shops, restaurants, galleries and waterfront all visible from the front windows! The owners were very knowledgeable about the local scene and provided many useful recommendations. The home is multilevel with much old New England charm. There is even a small "theater" on the second floor which actually hosted performances by many previous occupants. Highly recommended for anyone who has a love for colonial history and, of course, the waterfront."

"What's better than staying at a house on the Maine coast in July? Maybe owning the house. But if that's not possible, rent this one. The house is very comfortable and is surrounded by water. Be advised, however, that the tides are fairly drastic, leaving exposed mud on the Eastern side of the house. Swimming is very doable during high tide, but getting into the water at low tide is impossible on the Eastern side and difficult at best on the Western side.
The owners were very accommodating, but perhaps a little too relaxed about making sure there was enough propane in the tank, which ran out midway through dinner one night. C'mon guys, get a spare tank! Also, the electric range is a bit finicky, with burners sometimes shutting down for no apparent reason. And if you want to make pancakes for breakfast, be sure and bring your own pan or griddle.
That being said, I'd stay there again (if the owners will let me after this review). It's all about location, and this property has it."
