Lovely house but.....
The house is attractive and located within reasonable distance to Acadia. It was clean, comfortable and adequately supplied with dinnerware and cooking utensils.
The house consists of a large new addition to an older house, but, what were they thinking? The three upstairs bedrooms in the new addition have no heat!! Sleeping on cooler nights requires keeping the doors open so the heat from a lower level central room drifts up. All three of these bedrooms share only one bathroom. The view from the second level master bedroom through sliding glass doors is gorgeous but, oops, there's no deck on the other side of the doors.
There were minimal old towels and no amenities, eg. soap, shampoo, as many Airbnb's put out. Many Airbnb's I've stayed in have some form of welcoming "gift", some fruit or snacks, flowers, a bottle of wine, etc. but not here.
Lastly, as a notable insult and despite a significant cleaning fee, they state: "It is the Lessee's responsibility to leave the house in a broom clean condition. This means a minimal amount of laundry, all dishes cleaned and put away, all used beds stripped (but not made back up) and the general condition of the property neat." So what is the cleaning fee for if we do all the cleaning?
We did leave the house in very neat, clean condition (albeit we didn't run the washing machine with the sheets) and our security fee was refunded.
Well....it’s obvious you don’t have a rental but everything has to be sanitized and cleaned for new people coming in that is what the cleaning fee is for and usually there are people in and out in the same day it can’t be excessive cleaning. Also it is not advertised that there is a balcony off the master bedroom so sorry you wanted one. Sorry you were unsatisfied. Also everything you are complaining about is stated before you rented besides you being cold.
The property was perfect for our family get together.
The house exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, comfortable, very clean, and stocked with everything we needed. Our visit was for my daughters wedding. It was so much better than a hotel and we had a great time all together. We would definitely go back.
Family Get together
My family chose Maine as our annual get together and needed to accommodate several family members. The lower bedroom and bathroom were great for my mother. The claw foot tub is not the easiest for an older person to access though. The three upstairs bedroom worked well for the rest of us. The large bedroom upstairs was beautiful. The bathroom upstairs was small but worked fine. The kitchen was adequately equipped. A large frying pan would be beneficial. The living room was large and wonderful. We enjoyed the tv in the evening and in some of the bedrooms. The view from the large deck was great and the yards were great for fires and playing games. Property was very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia. Mattresses were not the most comfortable. I would definitely recommend this property. Some of the photos don’t do the home justice as a couple of the rooms were just beautiful.
Wonderful, spacious, well equipped, great location, and very comfortable for our party of 7.
We had a lovely time and a great home base at this house to explore Bar harbor’s wonderful sights. House had everything to make a comfortable stay!
Great location, lovely home
House was in a great location with beautiful views, especially as it was full Fall color. Pretty house that had everything we needed, comfortable.
We had a great time in MDI and a big part of what contributed to that was that the house we stayed in had everything it promised and everything worked at it should. The beds were all comfortable and I would be happy to stay there again. It was extrmemly safe and very close to the national park and plenty of “lobstah” pounds! We cooked breakfast there daily, made sandwiches for our day trips, and ate “lobstah” every night. What a great vacation that our family will never forget! Thank you Wallaces and Shelley!
15 mins to Bar Harbor and 10 mins to Southwest Harbor seconds away from hiking and walking trails Lakes for swimming just minutes away. This property is in a great central location.
