Beautiful home, helpful owners, convenient location
What an amazing property! This house was beautiful and well kept. The house was very clean and well equipped with all newer appliances, kitchen gadgets, sheets, furniture etc. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, laundry detergent, and dish washer detergent were all included. If traveling with little ones there was a high chair and pack n play. The backyard was beautiful with a tiny stream, outdoor dining area and grill. Plenty of maps, guides, and brochures for the area were provided to help you plan your days. The owners were very helpful and responsive to questions. They gave suggestions on things to do and where to grab groceries. The only negative thing I could say is that the bedroom curtains allow a ton of sunlight in the morning so if you plan to sleep in you may want to figure something out. We personally enjoyed waking up naturally and getting our day started. The "quietside" of Acadia is a couple minutes down the road and the main portion with the visitors center is an easy 20 min away. I would absolutely recommend this home for your Acadia vacation!
Thank you so much for the review. We will plan to install some light blocking shades in the bedrooms. It does get light very early here!
Very nice stay
Very clean, new, well equipped. The perfect place to visit Acadia National Park.
We lLOVE this house!
We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is our favorite. This home is so cute, well stocked and clean as a whistle. It is in a great location to see Acadia Nat'l Park. The owners are really nice and very accommodating. We are already planning when to come back because we loved it so much.
Thanks for the wonderful review! We loved having you!
Cozy home indeed!
A few of my friends and I really enjoyed our stay here for the long weekend. The house itself is fairly updated and had most of the essentials, emphasis on essentials, that one would expect from a home rental (paper towels, bath towels, toilet paper, cleaning agents, pots, pans etc.) I guess the only "negative" thing about the house was that we had to run out to the store to get condiments as we cooked many meals here, but that really wasn't a big deal. Just by that it's pretty apparent how pleased we were about the place. The location is nice as it isn't on a major road and car noise didn't really affect us in any way. Bar harbor is about 30 minutes away which is as far as most people visiting Acadia would go, which means that most trails that we went to were within that time period, not to mention the nice scenery that we were able to look at as we were traveling. The one thing in the house that we kept referring to and thought was extremely useful was the map that was hung up on the wall between the living area and the kitchen. It was a map of the entire area with trail names and how long each trail is. Brochures and pamphlets were also provided about things to do in the area, which gave us a good starting point of what to research when it came to what we wanted to do. Sue was very responsive and made sure to check in with us before the check in/out times and was very easy to talk to. Unfortunately, it was a very rainy weekend so we spent a little more time inside the house than we wanted to, but the house was so comfortable that we were able to make the most of the lost time and get some nice rest. I would definitely recommend this place to others and may would definitely consider renting this place in the future. Thanks again Sue for letting us stay!
Thanks for the positive review. We appreciate the suggestion of condiments, which we were considering anyway. Moving forward, condiments will be provided. Thank you!
My wife and I booked this place to be away from the tourist log-jam in Bar Harbor and away from the tourist-buss congestion along the Park Loop Road. We loved this location! Between 5-30 minutes from all points of the island, minutes from quality restaurants in small downtown Southwest Harbor, and 10 minutes from the Bass Harbor Lighthouse (which meant that I was one of only 6 people watching the sunrise from that point, beautiful!).
The place seems to have either been just built from scratch, or entirely remodeled. Everything is brand-new, and my wife was very appreciative of the well-stocked kitchen. The Bed was super comfy and the bathroom new and super clean.
Sue was very communicative with us, and gave us some great trail hike recommendations.
We couldn't have asked for a better stay!
Very clean and cute! Would definitely stay there again!
The home was incredibly clean and well cared for. It is decorated nicely, including a map of Mt. Desert Island hanging up with helpful directions. The home has good reliable wifi which was incredibly useful since we did not have good cell service throughout most of the island. The backyard was also very well kept and it was great for my toddler son to have a place to run around outdoors. The owner was also very pleasant to communicate with. We look forward to our next trip there and would check this property first to see if it's available!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! Glad you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to having you come back again.
