Recent Northeast Harbor reviews

  • 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."

  • Excellent house for a large group

    "Alpenhof proved to be an excellent choice for our small family reunion. There are two small downstairs bedrooms each with its private bath. For the two of us that are elderly these were great. The upstairs had a lovely master suite as well as two other bedrooms that shared a large bathroom with shower. I have rented a number of other houses over the years but this one exceeded any of them as far as the kitchen equipment. Whenever we needed a particular gadget, silverware, whatever all we had to do was look and there it was. The support to help with any questions or problems we had was excellent. After a couple of days one of the showers downstairs slowed to a trickle. I called the plumber whose number was listed by the phone and he was there before noon. Unbelievable! At home I usually have to wait a day or two before getting a plumber to come. On the esthetic side Alpenhof is surrounded by a lovely small forest which provides complete privacy. All you have to do is walk to the end of the long driveway and turn right for a few yards to see the water. Northeast Harbor is the ideal location for a vacation stay. It's only a twenty minute drive to the shops and restaurants of Bar Harbor. There are a few shops and restaurants in the village itself but if you are in the mood for more activity Bar Harbor is very close. Acadia National Park is also very close and provides many hiking paths and beautiful views wherever you drive or walk. We stayed at Alpenhof the first two weeks of June and enjoyed the cool weather since all of our group came from hot climates ranging from Phoenix to New Orleans. It was hard to leave. Everyone one of us would happily return in a heartbeat. Last but not least the owners were very easy to work with and quickly responded to every question I had about Alpenhof including detailed directions for getting there from the airport. All in all I highly recommend Alpenhof to anyone seeking a comfortable home in which to enjoy the beautiful rocky coast of Maine."

  • Lovely home in cental NorthEast Harbor

    "This was my first time ever renting a home instead of staying in hotels while we traveled. To say I was nervous is an understatement. I was looking for a true relaxing experience while we visited Acadia, and I this house provided us that. First and foremost, Tim was very accommodating and understanding of the many questions I had regarding the rental process. In my first email to Tim, I told him that I had never rented a home before and within five minutes I got a phone call. He did everything he could to calm my nervousness, which I appreciated tremendously. I knew from that point I was dealing with a legit homeowner. Even at the last moment, he allowed me to add my small dog to our trip when I initially thought I would be leaving him with family. The property was a perfect size for our party. We traveled with four adults, three teenagers, a three-year-old, and my dog. The two couples each had the same size master bedrooms, so no flipping of a coin was needed, and the teenagers shared a room with ample space and their own beds. We really appreciated the multiple bathrooms when it came time to get ready. The house itself was stocked with more than what we needed to get by. It had everything! I kept saying to myself how much money I saved by not having to buy all those items that made our stay so comfortable. I have officially been converted to a home renter in my travels! The area of the rental was central to all the great things the island had to offer. In my initial search, I thought we had to stay in Bar Harbor to be around all the action. I am SO GLAD we did not! We visited Bar Harbor for one day but it was such a busy place that we never went back. It was just full of shops. Besides, all the fun stuff was around us. We visited all the great spots: Jordans Pond, Cadillac Mountain, The Carriage Trail, etc, but also got to go on a deep sea fishing adventure where the captain pulled up lobster pots and gave everyone on board a lobster. We did our fair share of relaxing too. It was very convenient that just a short walk from the house was a quaint little Main Street with stores full of everything we could need. Also, there was a Walmart and a Shaws a short drive away. We ate out sometimes but also made good use of the BBQ grill on the property. Our last day we decided to explore the SouthWest Harbor. I am so glad we did because we got a chance to take a kayaking trip on Long Pond at sunset. I told Tim we will DEF be back again! THANKS TIM AND FAMILY!"
