                                                              Great house, with lots of room. Nice to have two separate kitchens with a big group when everyone is making their own breakfasts and lunches. Would definitely stay here again.

                                                              A wonderful house to stay!

                                                              We had 14 family members staying in this house.

                                                              It was a very comfortable house to stay. We had very much enjoyed our stay. Kristin was a wonderful host. Thank you! We will definitely rent the house for our future visit!

                                                              Large historic house with rustic charm

                                                              We've been coming here in the summer for years. Typically we are a large group, so we appreciate the number of bedrooms. It's also in a location we like, a short walk from downtown Southwest Harbor, and right across the street from Beal's Lobster Pier, and convenient to the rest of Acadia National Park.

                                                              Loved it!

                                                              Awesome week. We loved the Clark house.

                                                              Our family of 12 assorted relatives (6 children aged 7 to 15) and 6 adults had a fabulous time hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, golfing, playing croquet, eating lobstah etc. etc. etc. The house suited us exactly, being well equipped and extremely comfortable.

                                                              It was a pleasure to have your family at the house. The kids enjoyed playing in the yard and being outdoors. The home allowed 3 generations of family to spend quality time together...and the weather was fabulous!

                                                              A very convenient location with more than enough room for everybody in the group.House is very clean with ample accessories. we did so many acadia attractions in just 2 days. we never ran out of groceries, west side plaza is just in neighborhood. I really appreciated, owners being so caring and generous. we arrived really late in the night and the lights were on with all beds setup to go to sleep right away. overall our stay was very pleasant and because of the house, we were able to make complete use of our vacation time. Many thanks Kristin.
