  • As comfortable as home

    "Sow's Ear was an absolute delight for our family of 3. It only took one day of close attention to get our 5yo daughter to look and not touch all of the interesting decorations spread around the house. The kids room is adjacent to the stairs so wouldn't recommend for under 3's without bringing a portable gate, but otherwise great. The house is very new and super comfortable. With the windows closed it is super quiet. When open, you get a fantastic airflow. The natural light throughout is also great. Although on a neighborhood side street, it is easy walk into NE Harbor (5 min or less, faster on bike), which also has a new co-working space if you need that sort of thing during your stay. The location is very convenient to everything on the island with easy bus access if you don't want to drive. The kitchen is fully setup for whatever you need and the furniture is newer and comfortable. the gardens are truly remarkable and very relaxing. Having access to the garage for storing bikes was great, so I didn't have to keep them tethered to the car the entire week. Also, don't miss a visit to the Naturalist's Notebook store in NEH. Also learned that the street you come into ties into scenic Sargent's Drive so it makes the drive home and in the morning all that much more appealing when going to other parts of the island."

  • A quiet retreat and a base from which to explore

    "We spent a wonderful week at Spruce Knoll in early September. The property is situated on a beautiful piece of land and the soaring great room brings the outdoors in. We will remember early mist curtaining Western Mountain, the beautiful sunsets and a deck magical for stargazing for a long time. Peg’s home was our refuge for a week – a place to read and dream and observe the natural world – and head out from to explore Acadia. We found Peg to be our perfect owner – both very responsive and ready to share her knowledge of the island and deep sense of place – and respectful of our temporary stewardship."

  • Slightly disappointed

    "The property itself was as advertised however there was no WIFI during our stay. The owner did come the second day with a new unit so the effort was there but we could never get it operational. Realize that may not be peak time and perhaps there were problems getting the internet provider to handle but the lack of communication after the one attempt was discouraging."

  • Lovely Maine home, perfect for a large family

    "6 adults and 3 children enjoyed this beautiful home for a week. Our kids were never bored, and spent hours kayaking and swimming off the dock on the property. The home was large enough to accommodate the mix of family members and everyone always had a space to read, play a board game, or just sit on the lovely deck and enjoy the amazing view of Somes Sound. The house is fully stocked and there was nothing we needed. The owners even provide ample linens & towels. The caretaker was very helpful, and when we lost power for a few hours one evening because of a trim limb down, she responded quickly to let us know what was happening. The location on the quieter side of the island was perfect, and we enjoyed many evenings in Southwest Harbor, although we were only a short drive from Bar Harbor as well. Couldn't have planned a more idyllic vacation, in large part because of this great property."
