  • Simply Perfect

    "Coming from Florida in the middle of the hot and humid summer, our family was looking for an idyllic farmhouse close to major sites, like Acadia, but tucked away just enough. We found this home to be a delightfully charming Maine farmhouse! We had 3 adults and 2 children (6 and 1.5), and we all had more than enough space. The kids loved all of the little details of the home, especially the nooks and crannies. There are 2 sets of stairs, but both can be blocked off with closed doors, so the home is absolutely safe for young toddlers. The backyard is large and quiet, and is perfect for evening activities. The home is close to everything!! Acadia, Bar Harbor and the Schoodic Peninsula are all within easy access, and there are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants and shops within about a 15 minute drive. The owners are kind and welcoming -Ray had wonderful suggestions for us, and was very accommodating. Don't leave without cooking your own lobsters-and definitely follow Ray's suggestion on where to buy!! We felt at home immediately, and we were sad to leave-we will be back!!"

  • A Visit With Grand Aunt Agatha (if only I had one)

    "A lovely home. Clean as a whistle. (Aggie has a great housekeeper). A to die for kitchen (Didn't taste her recipes), but everything was there if I felt like cooking. Fluffy clean towels and super linens on the bed (Of course my grand daughter chose the one with the canopy). Period furnishings except for the great room with a comfy couch and chairs. One little problem, but Auntie's stand-in took care of it promptly with a text. The Blue Hill area is scenic, close to Acadia, with hidden beaches and serene scenes with very few tourists to trip over. A short walk to a good restaurant to sit under the trees. A travelled street, but a huge backyard with fireflies."

  • Everything we hoped for and more

    "Great view. The chairs were put to good use watching the tide come in and out and watching the full moon rise over the trees and water. The house was in excellent shape and very comfortable. Everything you need is provided. Extras included maps and brochures to help you plan your week. Very quiet and away from the crowds, but an easy drive to get to Acadia and Bar Harbor area. Enjoyed the hiking in Acadia National Park. There is something for everyone."

  • True Taste of Country

    "This was our first visit to this part of Maine, and we fell in love with the whole Mount Desert Island area but especially with Acadia. We enjoyed the view from Cadillac Mountain, but especially loved getting up close and personal with the ocean, at Thunder Hole and at the tide pools at Wonderland. We went on an awesome whale-watching tour out of Bar Harbor and enjoyed walking around, soaking up the touristy atmosphere of the town. We also made a trip to Fort Knox and the Penobscot Observatory, both of which were impressive. Since we were only in the area for 3 days, we spent most of our time out and about, but what time we did have at the house was great - it had everything we needed except drinking water, which was easily remedied. The property is beautiful and there isn't a neighbor in sight, which was nice. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any wildlife around the house, just a woodpecker and other birds. There's an extensive collection of books of all sorts in the front hall for your reading pleasure, along with games and a few toys. The house was a comfortable temperature for the most part; the fans came in handy for making the bedrooms comfortable for sleeping. The new refrigerator is freaking awesome, and it was so handy to have a washer and dryer on site. We also really appreciated having a cooler and some already frozen "blue ice" we could borrow. On the downside, the downstairs shower didn't have much water pressure (I didn't try the upstairs one), and the water tends to smell a bit . . . cottage-y . . . but no big deal. It was a bit inconvenient not to have cell phone service, but the homeowners have made sure there is a landline available. Wi-fi wassn't working great for us - sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and sometimes not at all. Same with Netflix. Nothing that was a deal breaker, and we'd come back in a heartbeat to enjoy this taste of Maine country living and to be so conveniently located by Bar Harbor and Acadia."
