Loved our stay at the Explorer Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at the Explorer Cabin. The Rankins are excellent hosts. The Cabin is exactly as depicted. When we arrived it was clean, everything in working order and even a few extra commodities were included. The Cabin is on the quiet side of the island and very close to many excellent restaurants and hiking trails. Loved our week there.

Best cabin and location in the area!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I just fell in love with the cabin and the peacefulness it offered. We plan on returning again next year about the same time. Rob and Marj made us feel welcome and were nice enough to lend us their lobster pot for a quiet seafood dinner. I would suggest this cabin or one of the others from the Rankins if you want a really well cared for cabin with all the amenities you could possibly need. The pictures look inviting but when you open the door you see just how beautiful it is and well made. The washer and dryer were a nice plus to have too. Thank you so much Rob and Marj. We will be looking forward to next summer. Ron

Perfect play to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had everything we needed and is located on the Quiet Side in a quiet, secluded peaceful area, yet well within driving distance to Bar Harbor, Acadia, Bass Harbor and Schoodic Point. We appreciated the laundry facilities in the cabin and the screened in porch is especially enjoyable. Rob and Marjie are wonderful hosts and truly made our stay very enjoyable. We will certainly be back!

Cozy, comfortable spot -- perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean, modern, situated in a quiet, woodsy setting, and had all the amenities we needed. Conveniently located near Southwest Harbor town center and Beal's Lobster and a short drive from Bass Harbor. Beds were very comfortable, bathroom clean and shiny, and kitchen was extremely well furnished, with top-shelf cookware and a gas grill. Screen porch was a very nice feature -- great place to have morning coffee in full view of the surrounding pine trees. And it was great to come back from a day of hiking or canoeing or touring to the piney fragrance of the cabin. Rob and Marj live just a few hundred feet away and were very gracious and friendly. I'd come back in a heartbeat!

Perfect, quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We will come back! SW Harbor is less crowded than Bar Harbor, not noisy and the cabin is perfect and you can walk to some of the trails we wanted to go on. When we come back we will definitely stay here again, we couldn't be more happy.

The property was in a very pretty spot just next to Acadia National Park.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a very pretty spot just next to Acadia National Park. We could literally walk out our front door and in less than a minute be in the Park to walk, hike and bike. The log cabin was very nice. It reminded us of our home (we have a log home) so we felt comfortable. Would recommend it to any couple looking for a quiet and meaningful experience in a beautiful setting.
