Spacious Cottage, Private R-O-W To Shore, & Minutes From Acadia National Park!
average rating of 4.9375 based on 16 reviews

Lovely home base for our Acadia vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is great with plenty of space in the open-plan first floor for our large group. Back yard is cozy and we enjoyed using the outdoor fireplace. It was lovely to be only a short walk from the beach and a short drive from charming Southwest Harbor. The owners were very responsive to questions.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great area and fully equipped with all that we needed. Plenty of linens and towels. Very clean full of Amenities if you forgot anything. Jeff and April are wonderful hosts and if you have an issue they will be there to help. We loved the place. We had four children with us ranging for 2 to 10 and they want to go back. Private beach within 5 minutes was great for them to explore. I would definitely rent again.

House was well stocked and just as pretty as the pictures. We loved the location too!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of space for our family of four, with one bedroom unoccupied. The house was very clean, well stocked for days when you want to eat in, and the owners were a pleasure to work with. The kids loved taking the path down to the sea to look for ocean life. We would definitely stay here again.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. The size was just right for our group - two adults and five teenagers. Love the quiet side of the island -- the house is only a couple of minutes from quaint downtown Southwest Harbor and even closer to the beautiful seascape near the Seawall campground. The right-of-way behind the house has a very short walk to the water, which the kids enjoyed. The house had all the amenities we needed; it was nice to know we didn't have to remember to pack everything. Kitchen fully stocked; top-notch appliances; linens provided; etc. Would definitely stay here again!

Acadia house turns out even nicer than expected!!

  • 5 of 5

The Acadia house worked great for our group of 8. My 80 year old parents were downstairs which was nice so they didn't have to climb stairs. Rarely can you find rental property with actually a dining room table with leaves to seat such a large group. Then we were able to use the smaller round table for an on-going puzzle! The den area worked great with bringing a rocker and smaller chair from another bedroom so that we could all watch tv in the evenings. The outdoor space was very private and worked great for our 2 golden retrievers. We enjoyed the short daily walk every day to the beach where it was so private and a great spot for our dogs to go swimming for exercise. The only negative would be the tall weeds growing in the front yard which surprised us for being attached to a nursery, but it had no affect on our great vacation. We actually liked being on southwest harbor side where it is less crowded. We have traveled to Maine about 8 times from Virginia over the years for a wonderful family vacation, but in the past we have always camped in Acadia National Park. This was certainly a nice change to come back to a house every day from hiking and enjoying the sights to have showers, internet and a great place to hang out with family! We even appreciated how well stocked the house was with paper towels, toliet paper and laundry detergent! Overall, we were very pleased and would certainly use this rental again!
