Good location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time exploring Mt. Desert Island, and staying at "loon crossing" provided us with a good base location to check out both sides of the island. Tim was readily available to answer any questions, and quickly solved any issues. The house was clean, well supplied, and spacious, as pictured, great for our group of 7 adults.

Owner's Response: It was great meeting you and your family Grace. Glad you had such a good time. Northeast Harbor is the best kept secret on the island. Hope to see you again. Cheers

Excellent location. Spacious accommodations. Walking distance to town and the Parks Shuttle.

  • 4 of 5

Loon Crossing had nice qualities and the space is really quite large. The kitchen is huge and is quite well equipped. We had some really noisy neighbors - crying children late into the evening - so that was challenging. When they left it was blissfully quiet. The location is excellent.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good time. It is where we live in the spring and fall when our big house (460665) is leased. If you stay with us again, please notify me if you have loud neighbors and I will speak with them. Have a great rest of the summer. Cheers

Family vacation in Northeast Harbor

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our family: my husband & myself, our daughter & her husband and our 12- and 14-year old grandsons. We have stayed on Mount Desert Island before, but never in Northeast Harbor. We loved walking down to the pier to watch the morning activities!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had such a good time. We also like being centrally located and in walking distance to everything. Northeast Harbor is a hidden oasis that not many know about. It's a little gem on the island. Nice and quiet but has all the amenities and close to Bar Harbor. Hope to see you again. Cheers

Everyone loved the place

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property as overflow housing for a family event in Northeast Harbor, much of which took place at a family house nearby. My nephews, niece, and two sons and their families all stayed there at various times during the week, and the reports were all glowing. The house was exactly as advertised -- quiet, clean, comfortable, and well situated -- very close to the wonderful Northeast Harbor Library and Main St. Cooking was easy, beds comfortable, and everyone had a good time. We'd certainly consider renting it again.

Location above all

  • 4 of 5

We loved the easy access to all the areas in Acadia and the short walk for a few groceries or the excellent restaurants on Main Street. Nice to be away from the bee hive of activity in Bar Harbor. Owner Tim was very helpful. The kitchen is well stocked in terms of dishes, glasses, pans, etc. house worked well for us.
