Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 9th time we have stayed at this place. We keep coming back as it is hard to stay away. The cottage is a true gem conveniently located to all that Acadia National Park has to offer- the carriage roads, Jordan Pond, Bar Harbor, hiking, biking, and a short walk to the ocean. For families, the house is equipped with all that you will need for your vacation. I highly recommend this rental to all who want to experience the awesomeness of Acadia National Park.

Had a wonderful time in Acadia. Coming back to Nick's cottage after days of exploring was like coming home. Cozy, quiet, clean, amazing location.

Nick is a wonderful person and host.

Coming back next year for a longer stay!

Great place great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Cottage. We love the location which is only a mile away from Jordan pound and it was very quiet at night. Nick was a gracious host. He lives in the house behind the cottage so he is always available when you need him. Nick was absolutely a pleasure to deal with. He is very prompt in sending the contract and returning the deposit. Keep in mind mails going in and out of MDI can be slow (It took 3-4 days to and from NYC).

You can tell the place was very well care for. The kitchen was very clean and well stock with all the essential items (including sugars and flour) we needed to prepare our meals.

There were no cell (Verizon and AT&T) receptions at the cottage. But it's equipped with high speed internet (~ 20 Mps) and a landline.

We found the large binder with all the information (restaurant menus, various activities) very useful. Nick also provided a list of recommended restaurants in the area. There are also various maps and book at the cottage. I personally enjoyed reading the book about the history about the carriage roads.

As with many people who stayed in this cottage in the past I will certainly return when I visit Acadia NP again.

Ideal Location for Exploring Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Place offers a clean, comfortable, and well-equipped base from which to explore MDI. Nick provides everything needed for planning your explorations - maps, guide books, local publications, and for down-time - a fully equipped kitchen, including many staples and consumables, TV/DVD/stereo/internet, and washer/dryer. He's also available if you need anything and to provide helpful recommendations regarding local restaurants. The location offers easy access to the park via car, bike or on foot as well as distance from the congestion of Bar Harbor, and the tour bus stops. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hope to return.
