Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Week in MDI!

    "My husband and I stayed at Ellen and Curt's house for a week in June. The house was ideal for our needs, with plenty of space and additional amenities like plenty of utensils in the kitchen for cooking. Everything was clean and well managed. We did not wind up making use of the fire pit, the grill, or the canoe, but those are available if you want them. The house is a bit out of the way from some of the bustling areas of MDI, which was a big plus for us. It was quiet and relaxed, but very easy to get around the island from the house. We went on several walks directly from the house, spent many days over in Bar Harbor, went all over Acadia (biked the Carriage Roads, hiked Cadillac and Acadia Mountains, visited Long Pond and Jordan's Pond, and enjoyed Echo Lake and Sand Beach), and also made it to Tremont to visit Thurston's Lobster Pound not once, but twice! There are two bathrooms in the house, but only one upstairs and you have to go through the master bedroom to access it. This isn't a problem at all if you are a couple staying there on your own, but it's something to consider if you have younger kids who might not want to go downstairs in the night to use the bathroom, or if you're planning to share the house with another couple. I'd also note that the house does provide bikes, but they've definitely been used over the years and aren't in the best of shape -- if you plan to do serious biking, I'd recommend bringing your own or planning to rent from one of the many bike shops in Bar Harbor (we did this one day to bike the Carriage Roads). We hope to make it back to MDI soon, and will definitely check to see if this property is available when we return."

  • A lovely retreat

    "We stayed in this house for a week in August. The house is gorgeous, much nicer than the pictures on the website. Views are superb, especially the sunsets -- we often ate out on the deck to watch the sunset. Stars were great too, as there is very little light pollution on this part of the island. The bedrooms are roomy, and a spacious bedroom and bath on the first floor was welcome by my aging parents. Several good restaurants are nearby for takeout... not to mention some great hiking trails. Highly recommended!"

  • Quiet yet close to everything!

    "We loved our stay at Garden Court. The quiet setting was wonderful! We enjoyed being close to everything and did a bunch of paddling, hiking and biking. The house was comfortable and the owners pleasant to work with. Would stay here again in a heartbeat...actually we really didn't want to leave!"
