Small & Cozy
We enjoyed our stay, very clean, quiet and cozy. Plenty to do in Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. Explore Acadia National Park. Our only qualm was no curtains in any windows, you can see into the Cranberry house. But we would stay here again. The stars at night were phenomenal. You can view them from the deck. The sound of the ocean in the background, no ocean view though. But it is an easy drive to the Seawall. Thank you for a great stay
The place was clean and all ready for us. We stayed in late September so didn’t get much use of the deck. Not very many amenities and the couch was not very comfortable for 2 adults. Being late September we were likely inside more than those staying in summer. There was no blind or shade on the bedroom window - so be prepared to be up with the sun. The lack of that window covering was probably my biggest issue. Also note there are just a few space heaters if you are staying in cooler weather. The ceilings were sloped which I could see being a bit problematic for tall folks but wasn’t an issue. Location was good we had wanted to be a little off the beaten path assuming places would still be very busy. Southwest Harbor was very sleepy and Bar Harbor wasn’t too busy - if we’d known we probably would have stayed over there in fall but I think swh would be great for a summer stay when things are busier.
Wonderful place to get away!
Had a wonderful time in Maine and at the Treehouse while we were there. Lots of fun activities to do in the area and after long days of exploring the Treehouse was a perfect place to come back and relax. Very quiet as well as cozy. We will definitely stay again!
We spent a week at the Treehouse for our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is very private and quiet. We did not want to leave! Anne was very responsive to our inquiries and we found her to be a great hostess. We would like to stay here again!
Excellent stay at the Treehouse!
We truly enjoyed our stay at the treehouse, it was the perfect size for 2 people. Everything you need is already there so no need to pack a bunch of extra stuff. It was mostly secluded, there is a neighboring cottage that is beneath the treehouse, but when you are up there you don’t even notice. Overall it was a great stay. Southwest Harbor is lovely, and keeps you away from the hustle and bustle or Bar Harbor, and only 20 minutes drive to down town Bar Harbor.
Great Location - Adequate Space
This is an adequate place to stay in a great location on "the quiet side" of MDI. The owner, Anne, was very helpful and responsive to our needs! The apartment is very small, with a sloped ceiling in every room, so tall folks may not be as comfortable here. (My husband is 6'4)
A couple of improvements would go a long way towards making this space more enjoyable: screens on front windows and/or a screen door (no AC means you need a cross breeze to cool things off), and comfortable furniture for the deck. Because the apartment is small, , and the setting so beautiful, outdoor living space takes on great importance. There were 2 mismatched chairs (one metal, uncomfortable) and a grill on the deck. A pair of comfy chairs and a small table for drinks would really make a difference here! The mattress on the bed feels new and is comfortable, however pillows are old, flat and worn. Update these, too, please!
You can walk through the owners' yard to the beautiful rocky shore, but you cannot see the water from the deck; not sure why "long range views of water and Cranberry Island" was written into the description. Also, there is a house being built next door, so anyone booking this place August/September/October 2018 will hear construction noise all day on weekdays. Perhaps pricing should be adjusted until this project is complete as it does affect the tranquility quite a bit!
I don't like to post critical reviews, but travelers trusting their experience to a post on the internet need as much information as possible. A much nicer option is Anne's Cranberry Cottage next door, well worth the extra $30/night!
