  • 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."

  • Nice condo, right on the harbor

    "The description of the property was accurate. Property was well maintained and clean. The owners were very nice. We had an issue with the water heater and it was resolved the next day (even though it was a holiday!) Thank you John! I would definitely recommend this condo for someone looking to stay on Mt. Desert Island. It is on the quite side, which we didn't mind the 30 minute drive into Bar Harbor. We really enjoyed downtown Bar Harbor and of course, Acadia National Park. In town of SWH, grab a pizza and ice cream at Quiteside Cafe. You will not be disappointed! We had a rainy day and took the time to go to Schoodic Point. It is off the island but definitely worth the trip! Best part, nobody was there! Had a great time on Mt. Desert Island and would stay in the same place again!"

  • Our perfect vacation

    "We had such a wonderful week on Mt. Desert Island and were so comfortable in this beautiful home. It is such a pleasure to rent a home where everything works -- windows, screens, kitchen, all is functioning the way it is supposed to! And we have been filled with the beauty of the view, enjoyed the deck and the yard, and taken many a walk across the street. We even took dips in the Sound! The owner was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you."
