Recent Great Duck Island reviews

  • Fantastic location and spacious apartment

    "If you are looking for a convenient and spacious place to stay in Bar Harbor/Acadia, this is definitely worth looking at! The location couldn't have been more convenient with the park right across the street and restaurants/shops right outside the front door. As another reviewer noted, parking was never an issue, and we were often able to find a spot right in front of the apartment. The apartment itself was much larger than we expected! With two separate bedrooms, a large eat-in kitchen, and a living room with a door, we felt we had a ton of space to relax and spread out in when we were home in the mornings and evenings. It was the perfect place for us to stay in with our almost two-year old son. Unlike when you stay in a hotel room, he slept in the provided pack-n-play undisturbed in his own room while we read/watched TV in the living room before retreating to our own bedroom to sleep. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family, and we hope to rent it again if we head back to Bar Harbor/Acadia in the future."

  • Wow.... A perfect vacation home away from home

    "My husband, son and I had a wonderful time at the Elvin's Chalet. You really do not need to bring anything with you except beach towels and that is TRUE! We spent many of our hours out on the back deck basking in the beautiful view of the harbor. We spent our week crawling all over Mt. Desert island. This was our first time staying on the quiet side, and I have found that Southwest Harbor is one of my new favorites. The chalet is an easy drive to anywhere on the island, and just a 5 minute drive (if that) to the Bass Harbor lighthouse. One early evening, we were able to see 2 little fawns coming up the property! What a nice added touch! The bedrooms are very accommodating, and the bed in the master bedroom was SOOO comfy. My husband and I are still missing the comfy bed, and wonderful breezes that come through the house from the harbor. This rental is a must. The owners are wonderful, and little touches in the house were so thoughtful all over. My 19 year old son was happy there was Wi-Fi, and I was in love with the kitchen and huge dinner table. You will not be disappointed by this chalet. We cannot wait to come back again. Missing Maine already."

  • Exceeds Expectations!

    "My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying at quite a few wonderful places from Portland to Lubec. Seawall Cottage at Stone Beach is truly a gem! The location is spectacular with the overall property being serene, offering great views and the pictures of the grounds do not do justice for the beauty this place offers. It's no wonder the reviews are so high, the 5 stars are deserved. My wife and I will definitely plan a return trip to this wonderful spot on Mount Desert Island."

  • Impeccable Acadia experience

    "Our 7-person stay at Folkestone Cottage was everything we could have hoped for. Folkestone is a very private house located quite close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The warm, modern, open house itself has a spacious downstairs and comfortable bedrooms upstairs. The kitchen was great for all kinds of group cooking. Plenty of room. Multiple cars? A two-car garage. The master bedroom downstairs was a delightful place to sleep. Being away from major roads made this a quiet retreat from daytime activity during tourist season. The wifi handled all our seven devices throughout the day as our reunion group shared photos and videos and missives back home. Just sitting on the deck and enjoying chat accompanied by the wind in the trees made us all feel at home. Folkestone Cottage was perfect for our needs. Thank you to the hosts who were also very accommodating after our visit in helping us reclaim property left behind."
