Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Ideal getaway!!!

    "My husband and I have been going to Mt. Desert Island for over 45 years to enjoy the spectacular ocean walks and views, mountains, and lakes that the island offers. As much as we loved our twice (or thrice) annual trips to Acadia, the noisy motels/hotels and long restaurant lines were becoming tiresome and diminished our level of enjoyment. We'd often rented cottages elsewhere but had never found a cottage in the Bar Harbor area that we liked until we stumbled upon Paul's Cottage. What we ideally had wanted was a cottage on the ocean with a fireplace that offered both privacy and easy access to Acadia Park. After spending a fall and spring week in Paul's Cottage this past year, we have found it a perfect fit for us, offering many amenities including the following. - situated right on the shore with stunning westerly island and sunset views - welcoming, friendly, and accommodating owners (available but not intrusive) - a large updated kitchen not wanting for anything - fresh lobster and other seafood, produce, groceries, etc. available within a short drive - very good restaurants (especially in season) if desired - Acadia Park sites within easy driving distance - various books and games to enjoy by the huge fireplace (endless supply of firewood available) or on the spacious deck overlooking the water - the Southwest Harbor Library issues guest passes for non-residents for supplemental reading choices We are very much looking forward to our two-week stay this fall and are considering a winter visit at some point."

  • AWESOME HOUSE

    "Just got back from a week at this house. House was immaculate and very comfortable. It's on the quiet side of MDI which was nice. Only about a 20minute drive to bar harbor. Was well stocked with all the necessities. Would definitely recommend! Great communication with management(Greg)"

  • Family Vacation

    "I stayed here with my 3 children and we had a fabulous experience. The house can fit at least 7 and so we had plenty of extra space. The property is well maintained and a great place to sit and relax after a day of sight seeing. Easy access to all the sights on the island. I would definitely recommend Hetzer House to anyone looking to stay on Mount Dessert Island. :)"

  • Quiet week on MDI

    "Our family had a great week at Windiana III. Bottom line - Would we go back? - Absolutely! Two weeks after our visit, I am still thinking about sitting on the deck with a glass of wine, listening to the loons. The house was at the tip of a peninsula that extends into Long Lake. There is a 5+ minute drive down a single lane, 15mph gravel road to get to the house, but once you are there, you appreciate the solitude. Loons on the lake, daily bald eagle sightings, catching trout (small) from the dock, kayaking and canoeing, beautiful scenery....... The house has 3 bedrooms, and may be a little cramped inside for a large family (5+ adults), but was more than spacious for the 3 of us, plus dog! Also, there is a very large deck to spread out. Diana, our host was staying next door, so she was always available for advice or just to chat. The location is very central, with a short drive to Somesville and Southwest harbor. It is a little further to Bar Harbor (20min), but worth being away from the crowds. The kitchen is small, but well stocked. We decided to keep it simple and use the grill. A word of warning if you are going to MDI off season - everything shuts down early, so don't expect to get a pizza at 8:30pm, unless you want to drive into Bar Harbor. Internet service in the house is spotty, but we encountered that all over MDI. The lake was quiet during our stay, with just a few motor boats out fishing. Not sure about peak season, but I can't imagine it would be that different. There is a washer/dryer. Also, the house seems very handicapped accessible. Diana's dog Tucker played with our dog Tucker (T1 and T2), which, along with a swim in the lake, helped to wear him out! The water was not that cold, and I was able to get in for a while in early June. It was a very enjoyable week."
