Recent Mount Desert reviews

  • Cozy, beautiful, and private

    "We had an amazing week in Seal Cove in this fully equipped cottage. From the screened in porch we were able to see bald eagles, osprey, herons, and gorgeous sunsets. We have two small kids and the cottage was perfect for them with the coast and tide pools to explore and the yard to play in. The house is spacious and has books and board games for rainy days. Will definitely be heading back! Highly recommend."

  • Quiet, beautiful waterside compound

    "We just got back from a wonderful week in Mt Desert! We had 14 in our family from ages 3-78. The good: *The view! Spectacular during high tide! Definitely recommend kayaking in Squid Cove out to Squid Island) We saw 2 seals:) Water is so calm. We were so amazed how much the water came in and out (and how quickly!) between high/low tide. *The location - quiet area of the island and close to Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor is a zoo! *Crabs, hermit crabs, little crayfish near the shore:) Hoping to see more sea creatures. Saw one starfish! *Kitchen was well stocked (appreciated some spices in the pantry - we left a few ourselves) *Beds were comfortable *Comfortable living area in new house *Board games and lawn games (croquet & bocci - the kids had a blast playing both on the lawn area next to the new house) Not so good: * In the old cottage, had issues with opening/closing the door in the kitchen *Locking doors was a bit confusing - we didn't end up locking up any of the doors - I know some of my family was not comfortable with that. *There should be some directions on using the fireplaces in the old cottage. We had smoke coming in the cabin because we didn't realize to tie up the chain for the flue. Even when we tied the chain up, we still had some smoke coming in the rooms (there's a fireplace in the master bedroom, family room and the bedroom with the queen + 2 bunk beds). Bummer! The bedrooms smelled smokey for several days:( *Mosquitos!!! Bring your mosquito spray + anti-itch medicine! We probably each got at least 15 bites! More noticeable during low tide. *Furniture for new house was not put outside but was quickly fixed with a phone call. I think we were the first ones using the houses for the season so things were not quite prepared. *Bathrooms/bedrooms in the old cottage were not as tidy as the new house. Cobwebs, bugs in shower, dust in the master bedroom. I realize we are in the wilderness here but we expect it to be super clean. I'm guessing the houses were not cleaned just before we got there. *Had some issues with animal noises in the middle of the night. Raccoons under the baseboards in the master bedroom - terrible sound! Google it! In the master bedroom in the new house, we had mice making scratching sounds but luckily it only lasted 2 nights but still! We even had a sound machine and we woke up to the scratching sounds:( Overall, we had a memorable vacation!!"

  • Great home with Beautiful View

    "We spent 3 nights here and had a lovely stay. The home was immaculately clean and very cozy. We traveled with an infant and a three year old, and the owner brought a bucket of toys for our boys to play with while there. There is a beautiful view of the nearby lake. We liked the location on the quiet side of the island, but still close enough to several harbors/towns to easily get back and forth for dinner. We spent time hiking/sightseeing at Acadia, and it was simply stunning this time of year. Overall, 5 star stay, and I cant recommend this place enough!"

  • Very happy

    "This location was great. I was in southwest harbor for the mdi marathon and the finish line was less than a mile from the house. The house was clean and had all of the essentials! We definitely plan on going back!"
