Why Rosemary Matchak chose Mount Desert Island

To build a house was a lifetime interest--and we did it. We are sure you will appreciate the thought and effort that went into our endeavor, and find yourself immediately at home! We visited Acadia National Park for years and were fortunate to be able to eventually live here year round. For us to live among mountains, forests and lakes all while being on the ocean is wonderful almost beyond words. We built a home of classic design but with sustainability and comfort as our priorities.

An excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home is immaculate and we loved it. Very clean and well kept, only a couple of years old. Located in a very nice area. The location is kind of central to most things you might do. Bay Harbor is about a 20 minute drive where most restaurants and grocery stores are. Acadia National Park is beautiful so you'll enjoy the drive. As the owners point out, don't plan on using your cell phone at the house. I think that is because the National Park doesn't allow cell phone towers in the area. However, surprisingly, there is 4G service at the top of Cadillac mountain.

The best place to stay on Mount Desert Island!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay during our week long trip to MDI. The location is wonderful, easy walk to Seal Harbor Beach, Carriage Roads, and Jordan Pond House. Only 15 min drive to Bar Harbor. Rosemary and Charlie were excellent hosts and wonderful people to get to know! We really enjoyed meeting them and we were so thankful for their great hospitality. The home itself is brand new and very clean, which was extremely important to us since we were traveling with our 15 month old. I agree it isn't the best house for kids, but with 4 adults and only one toddler we were able to contain and keep a close eye on him! Such a great vacation... we will definitely be back!

Peaceful vacation with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for an Acadia vacation. Great location: An easy walk to the carriage trails and a short ride to Bar Harbor or to the hiking trails. One of the best prepared homes we've stayed in -- excellent for 3 adults traveling together, but would be good for couple or family, although not with small children. We walked, took horse-drawn carriage ride, enjoyed many park features, visited Asticou gardens, shopped, and relaxed in the quiet beauty of this home and this national treasure. Very thoughtful and responsive owners. Highly recommend.

Sunscape = Fun Escape !!!

  • 5 of 5

Sunscape is located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood setting in Seal Harbor. The home is immaculate and thoughtfully built and furnished. If you are looking to bike, hike, walk, fish, play games, and relax, then this is an ideally located Acadia vacation home. Very easy access to Jordan Pond and the heart of the park. Very easy access to Bar Harbor as well, without living with the daily hustle and bustle. The owners are exceptionally nice and thoughtful - don't be surprised when you receive homegrown vegetables from the garden! All of the best of Acadia is at your fingertips!

Absolute heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! The home is convenient to Acadia National Park and is an easy drive to Bar Harbor. Access to park hiking and carriage trails is about half a mile away. In addition, the house is absolutely beautiful and has everything that you need to settle in and enjoy a wonderful stay. The owners are delightful as well and very accommodating. We look forward to returning next year.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautiful home and loved every day. There are so many windows, and the views of Acadia in back are spectacular. This home is in a nice neighborhood and ever so close to Jordan Pond. Several days we left the car at home, and just started hiking towards JPH. The kitchen is fully stocked and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. We plan to come next year for another week. The owners are wonderful to work with, and have really thought through what travelers want and need in a vacation rental.
