Why Owner / Property Manager chose Mount Desert
Our family have been summering on Mt. Desert Island for 40 years and still revel in the beauty and opportunities here. Most especially is the availability of Acadia National Park and the seashore.

Lovely, spacious, well-appointed home
We had 7 adults stay here comfortably. There are 6 bedrooms, one of which is the "kids" room with 4 bunks, so my 2 adult kids shared this room. The kitchen is well-appointed and the open living area on the second floor is great for a large group. There's a really nice grill as well, which unfortunately, we didn't get to use and the property is private with a nice view. We had one small issue with one of the breakers popping in the downstairs bathroom, which they attended to within an hour. The location was within 10-15 minutes of Acadia Nat'l park and Bar Harbor, so it was very convenient. I would definitely stay here again if we're in the area.
Great place for our cousins reunion!!
Great place with lots of room and a fantastic view!!
Fabulous, spacious, comfortable home in beautiful, convenient, quiet location.
Owner is very caring and accommodating. I believe we were her first renters. There were a few minor issues and I emailed her and they were fixed immediately and graciously. We were a group of 6 adults and 4 little ones. Beds are comfortable, bathrooms lovely, great kitchen which is well supplied. Grill on deck is excellent. We rented 3 cribs, 3 high chairs, gates and baby toys and there was plenty of room for all of us.
The great room leaves you feeling like you are outdoors, surrounded by trees.
The road there is unpaved, but our little car was fine on it.
The location is excellent! It's central to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor. We saw some great public gardens in Northeast Harbor, hiked different trails every day in and around the park. We were there 9 days and you could easily do different things there every day for a month.
We loved Beal's Lobster Pound and they offer gluten free sides!
Back to the house: It is well supplied--lots of sheets, towels, kitchen supplies. Dishwasher, washer and dryer. Bedroom downstairs has lots of games and puzzles. We had a 4 1/2 year old who went wild for the train set.
Again, the owner was very open and interested in any concern we had and every concern was immediately fixed within the day. I would return to Mt Desert Island and this home in a heartbeat. It was great! We are from NJ and the friends who joined us are from Norway and Texas and we all felt the same way. A great house to come together. Karyn Reader and Dennis Schuchman
