We had an amazing time at the barn. Loved everything: the location, the lovely house and the grounds

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the barn. The first impression was impeccable, very comfortable and clean, beautifully and very clever decorated home. We loved everything: the location, the property and all the amenities of this moderate size but very well designed house. Thank you Theresa and Elena for the wine, coffe, chocolate ...and hand made soap basket! Bo doubt we would stay here again.

Newly renovated, clean, private, convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying near Southwest Harbor center. There was a nice coffee shop and a butterfly garden a short walk from the house. We enjoyed the rocky coastline at the Bass Harbor Lighthouse and Ship Harbor which were both close by car. Everything was neat and clean and the kitchen was well-stocked with equipment. We had a sunny patio surrounded with flowers and lawn and plenty of outdoor furniture. Elena was very helpful with our reservations and responding to questions.

We had a wonderful stay at the Greenhouse with our daughter and 5-year old dog. It was our third trip to Mount Desert Island and our favorite place to stay yet! If we could've stayed weeks more, we would have! We loved the morning light and the view from the upstairs bedroom (more than a few words written at the small Emily Dickinson-esque desk looking out at the trees). We even traded having alone time at the house in the gardens while the other had a day out adventuring with our kid. Loved having a french press in which to make the gifted coffee and loved the soaps and wine too. Delighted by cool, breezy evenings, with doors snd windows thrown open, playing Maineopoly and putting together the challenging Buoy Puzzle. With many thanks to our gracious hosts Terry, Elena, and sweet Pip!

Perfect Venue for a Comprehensive Visit to Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at The Green House. My wife and I booked it for ourselves last winter. Then our daughter and her dog decided to come. Later still, her boyfriend decided to come along. Elena and Theresa were absolutely great to work with in working out the changes. The house met all our expectations. It was in mint condition when we arrived. It is very well equipped. The grounds and patio are outstanding. I would recommend installing blinds on the other upstairs bedroom windows so as to help keep the heat out, if not to keep the sun out. The first floor open floorplan worked very well. Our only regret is that we did not get an opportunity to introduce ourselves to our hosts. We were just so busy all the time. This was a wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for visiting The Greenhouse. We too regret that we didn't see you, but were happy that you were all out and about and having a good time! Also, thanks for your comment about adding a blind - we will do that! All best, Elena, Terry and Pip

A lovely base for our Acadia excursions!

  • 5 of 5

The Greenhouse was a wonderful place for our family of three (plus our dog) to relax and feel at home while we visited Acadia for the first time. We really appreciated this clean and pleasant spot on the quiet side of MDI. It was great to have laundry facilities and a full kitchen on site. Our only concern was that we had a tough time finding the local swimming spots that were recommended. In any case, we hope to come back to this magical locale next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much to the three Es and Lucky for visiting The Greenhouse. Next time you come, if you have trouble finding Echo Lake, Seal Cove Pond, Duck Rock or any other swimming spots - give a call or stop by our yellow farmhouse down the road. Glad you had fun and you left the house in great shape - many thanks for that! All best, Elena, Terry and Pip

Beautiful cottage in a great location

We loved our stay at your cute cottage. Southwest Harbor was the perfect location for our participation in the Acadia Birding Festival. We will gladly recommend your place to others.

Please email me so I can send you the address for the damage deposit refund and send a couple of comments.

Glad you had fun at the Acadia Birding Festival. Somes Meynell is a favorite of ours. I will email you for your contact information, and thank you for leaving The Greenhouse in such good shape. All best, Elena, Terry & Pip
