  • Vacation of a lifetime

    "Our family enjoyed this vacation more than we could have possible imagined. We arrived after dark so waking up at Sunnymead and discovering all the special things about the house and grounds was like Christmas morning! The three bedrooms in the main house were perfect for our son and his children, who are super-early risers. The rest of us (4 adults) were more than cozy and comfortable in our lovely rooms; the house provides so much space for an active family. It was the perfect home-base for all of our park activities (hiking, biking, climbing, etc) as well. Jennifer's delightful touches - the gazebo set for dinner, fresh flowers around and a personal note - made us feel like special guests. We read "Fudge-a-mania" by Judy Blume while there and especially enjoyed identifying the settings Blume referenced in the book. We visited Charlotte's Lobster Pound twice - it was so much fun and DELICIOUS! We appreciated being able to prepare and eat our meals at "home" when we were not out at one of the fabulous eateries. (Beals for lobster, Grumpy's for breakfast) We picked up fresh blueberry pies, fresh crabmeat and more. Heaven! We loved walking to the beach and exploring tidal pools. Truly, we could not have chosen a more perfectly "Maine" cottage and will remember this trip forever."

  • Perfect Location!

    "Having never been to Bar Harbor before, we were a bit uncertain as to whether we should stay downtown or in the woods somewhere, since we expected this to be a very outdoorsy trip. As a young couple (late twenties), we couldn't have ended up happier with the location of this apartment. It is a minutes walk from all of the great restaurants, shops, bars and other attractions in Bar Harbor while still being a bit tucked away on what was definitely a more quiet street in the town. It has parking so it was great to be able to walk downtown to go out to dinner without worrying about where to park your car and dealing with that stress. We could get anywhere from here in minutes! It is also right off the shore path, which was great for talking runs and walks -- such a beautiful place to get an evening run in -- breath taking views. We also enjoyed how close it was to the farmer's market. We could drive to and be at almost any location in the park in just a few minutes too (after picking up coffee and a pastry at the bakery next door). The apartment itself is as described. It was basic, but had everything we needed and was very clean. The owners are very sweet and responded to a question we had but gave us our privacy. I thought it was sweet they even sent us a Christmas card! We made many fun memories on this trip and we really look forward to coming back sooner than later! We would definitely recommend this apartment and Bar Harbor."

  • 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."

  • Will always come back to!!

    "We had the best week ever! Waking up every morning to the view of the water was beautiful! The home touches that the owner put in this rental made us fell so much at home. The whole week we never used our car. We could walk to the restaurants in town, go hiking, and shopping. We will be back! Thank you so much!!!"
