  • What a quiet, beautiful, and wonderful place!

    "Without a doubt this was a wonderful place to stay (and I agree with a previous poster- the pictures really don't do it justice!) When I was a kid, my family would always visit Mount Desert Island, and I'm glad I had the chance to visit this beautiful property. First- the location is very good. My favorite part was that I could fly into the Bar Harbor airport and be at the house in under ten minutes. It's still a manageable drive to anywhere on the island too. But the location's best asset is the view westward into the bay. The sunsets were amazing, and there was plenty of room for exploring with a beautiful terraced garden. Each room in the house is designed to look out on the water (the view from the Master Bedroom is great). There is a deck facing westward that was wonderful for grilling too. The house had high ceilings and beautiful wooden walls. As a house it can easily fit eight. There's a room downstairs with TV and a few couches, which are good for lazy nights after hiking, biking, or kayaking. The house is about ten minutes from the town of Somesville, and a little more than twenty minutes by car to Bar Harbor. All the Acadia sights are an easy drive. So it's close enough to everything on the island while remaining it's quiet charm. Since moving south it's gotten harder to make it to Mount Desert Island, but I"m hoping to make it next year."

  • Couldn't have asked for more!

    "We were first timers to Maine and Acadia. We had heard from many people we know about the crowds in the park. Initially, we debated changing our plans for vacation because we were trying to escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. We are glad we didn't. The Tern II is an amazing property. We were all taken with the peace and quiet of the property not to mention the beauty of both the house itself and the landscape. The house is rustic and charming with room for everyone to hang out together or find their own space. The views from the windows and deck overlooking the ocean were gorgeous watching the changing tides and the abundant wildlife. Sitting out on the deck at night, I don't remember the last time I had seen so many stars. We found the house stocked with everything we could possibly need - cooking utensils, towels and extras most rental homes don't include. The location is very convenient to the park and restaurants yet far enough away to be able to escape the crowds. Overall, there isn't anything negative that I can say about our stay here. It made for a relaxing and memorable family vacation."

  • Perfect location

    "We were 2 60-somethings and 3 young adults. We knew Mount Desert Island from previous weekend trips to Maine, but we'd always stayed in a hotel in Bar Harbor. This was a much better plan. The house was perfect for us. We spent our trip hiking in Acadia. So happy to be away from the tourist crush in Bar Harbor, yet within an easy drive of the park and all of Mount Desert's restaurants. The layout of good kitchen plus dining and living areas meant we had plenty of space to hang out together."

  • Great location

    "We had a great week in Bar Harbor and Acadia. We could walk or take the bus everywhere we wanted to go. Very comfortable beds!"
