                                                          The house is spacious & great layout. Nice extras too (starting firewood, coffee). Good fireplace I would highly recommend Mariah & her home.

                                                          Very nice and clean. Great location. Couches in living room very low and hard to get off of.

                                                          Twin beds a little too firm. Master king bed was great, foam egg crate made sleeping so nice. Need these on other beds too.

                                                          Lovely Stay

                                                          Home is truly lovely, very well appointed. Loved the fireplace, outside deck and kitchen and living areas. Loved how close it was to the town and we could walk there if we wanted to. Excellent location and access to all of the beautiful trails in Acadia. Can't wait to return. Thank you!!

                                                          It was an incredible home away from home. It was far beyond our expectations in that it was lovely, comfy and had everything u could imagine to cook with, games to play, deck to enjoy and very accessible to all points in Mt Desert Island and beyond. There is not a better home and location if u are interested in breathless Arcadia National Park!!!!!

                                                          Fabulous week at Nepenthe Den

                                                          We loved the house - we had plenty of space and everything we needed. Mariah is an excellent host. We biked to the causeway and walked into town. Echo Lake is also a quick drive or bus ride. We were so lucky with excellent weather and spent a lot of time hiking, biking carriage trails, and swimming.

                                                          Southwest Harbor, ME, USA

                                                          With Acadia National Park being the main attraction to the area there is an abundance of activities to keep one occupied almost endlessly. The miles of trails for hiking, carriage roads for biking, scenic drives and miles of shoreline to kayak or sail just can't be done in a week or even an entire summer. However if during your stay you do start to feel you've had your fill of the great outdoors, or are maybe just too sore to put one foot in front of the other, there are many other activities to choose from. World famous gardens such as the Azalea, Asticou and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, which is a private garden but can be viewed when scheduled ahead of time, are all worth seeing. There is even a small but very quaint garden, The Charlotte Rhoades Park and Butterfly Garden, just a minutes walk from Nepenthe. Museums, art galleries, fine dining, fun boutiques with work from local artists, wildlife excursions and of course some incredibly fabulous spas to choose from! What would a vacation be without treating yourself to an amazing massage or facial! For the sea fairing lover kayaking to one of the outer islands and enjoying your own private picnic or savoring a sunset sail with one of the local companies in town is a must. If a quiet night is NOT what you had in mind many of the restaurants and bars provide live music and dancing as well. Venturing off Island, Mount Desert Island that is, to explore some equally beautiful areas such as Baxter State Park which can be done in a day trip or a very long day trip if you plan on hiking the highest peak in Maine Mt. Katahdin! The Eastern most point in the United States, Lubec, and crossing over into New Brunswick and visiting Campobello Island is also only a day trip away. Although there is never a shortage of sights and activities spring through fall most people don't know the area can be enjoyed year round. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and even snowmobiling is allowed on most of the paved park roads. Checking with park headquarters is advised ahead of time but with proper planning a sunset trip up Cadillac via snowmobile, or snowshoeing if you’re into that, can be pretty amazing. Whatever your agenda may be or the time of year you are able to visit this is definitely a place putting at the top of your list and making it happen.
