  • Fantastic reunion at Ilfracombe !

    "A group of life-long friends came together for a long weekend to celebrate being 60 and absolutely loved being at this lovely, friendly and cozy estate. The owner could not have been more accommodating, polite and enthusiastic about our visit. Just a perfect weekend in so many ways ! We would definitely love to come back !"

  • Much more than expected!!!!

    "My husband and 14 year old spent a week here, our first visit to Acadia. The pictures just do not do this jewel of a home justice. What an enchanting place. Beautifully remodeling of this 1903 family home, complete with evidence of family love and nurturing, where you can look in every nook and cranny and find the owners' personal touches providing everything anyone could ever need or want. Waking up in the huge master bedroom with the view of the harbor made me feel like I never wanted to leave the room. A incredibly well appointed kitchen also with every item you could ever want or need. The great room leading out to the spacious deck was heavenly. And let's not forget the grounds. Front back and sides all lsndscaped beautifully. The care taken in this property totally exceeded my expectations. Oh- and the bookshelves! I wanted to read every book in the house! I not only loved the house, but felt a closeness with the family that owns it. Just the way they have everything as I would in my own home and the added details that they took care in providing to make it a comfortable and relaxing vacation made this one of the best rental experiences ever. A word of caution - this is a home that you do not want to treat thoughtlessly - if you do not take care, it would be a terrible shame to see this home "trashed". It is a pristine jewel and we tried to care for it as if it were our own. As for the location, we loved being on the quiet side of the island, driving around was part of the fun. I would only say the only complaint I have about our vacation was that if we came back i would have to buy my own lobsters and cook them myself. I could not find a hard shelled lobster (so late in the season I suppose- we learned a great deal about the lobster trade, having done two tours) and I felt the restaurants were overpriced. To boot, I often do buy my own lobsters, and I really questioned the how they pass off chicken lobsters as pound and 1/2s. Other than that, everything we did, from relaxing at the house to all the adventures around the island, made this a great vacation! Thank you Reine and Bill and the rest of your family for sharing your home with us!!! Laura and Kevin"

  • Idyllic family reunion

    "The web description doesn’t do justice to Grey Rocks! It is a well maintained 1890s mansion with all modern conveniences, in a gorgeous setting, with beautiful flowers in the yard and on the deck. It’s very private, at the end of a long gravel drive, woods on three sides and the rocky beach on the other. The back lawn is great for romping dogs and playing kids, and the full-length back deck is wonderful for picnics and hanging out and looking at the ocean, where you see (and hear) lobster boats going by. The kitchen is well-stocked with pots and pans, the dishwasher and laundry machines work well, and while there are only two showers in the four bathrooms, everything worked. We (ten people, two dogs) loved the house and the location** which made for an idyllic vacation. ** Five minutes walk to Thurston’s Lobster Pound – no parking hassle!"

  • 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."
