  • 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."

  • couldn't have asked for more!

    "Where do I start? Reserving Garden Court was so easy, quick reply and it all went smoothly. Directions to the house were spot-on. Garden Court is cute, clean, well furnished and the bed was so comfortable. It is not on the main thoroughfare so we had to drive to get to Bar Harbor, but that's the way we like it and it isn't a long drive at all. Convenient to Southwest Harbor. Very cozy on the day we got rained in. Really a great place to spend time and use as a base to explore Acadia."

  • Well-appointed getaway on the quiet side.

    "We had a lovely stay at Seamist. Robin is an amazing host, and she patiently answered many questions, always very quickly. The home is very comfortable, and we enjoyed evenings on the couch with the fireplace going. There were just two of us, plus our little Italian greyhound. We rented the home because we needed a well appointed kitchen, and we got that in spades. Robin has thought of everything. It is also very nice that the home is stocked with basic supplies such as foil, plastic wrap, detergent, and tissues. The house was spotless, and it also had a good supply of books and other information about the area. We were very fortunate with the weather, arriving at peak color season. Acadia National Park was just spectacular! After leaving I realized that I had left three scarves in the closet, and Robin shipped them back to me the next day. I can't recommend Seamist and its extremely accommodating owners highly enough. We would definitely recommend this home to friends and family, and we hope to have a chance to return in the future."

  • Perfect Location!

    "If you're looking for a beautiful, spacious home just minutes from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, you have found it. Nestled among the towering trees, the spacious deck with its fire pit, barbecue grill, and peekaboo glimpses of the water makes it difficult to leave. In fact, you'll find yourself looking forward to coming "home" after a day of exploring the island. We picked wild blueberries behind the house and made our way down to the shore during low tide. And, if you plan to prepare meals at home, this kitchen lacks nothing. The 3rd floor deck off the master bedroom provides another inviting space for morning coffee with its glimpses of the waters below. For travelers staying in the fall and winter months, I'm sure the views are amazing! We stayed in the very hot month of July and were thankful for the air conditioning in the master bedroom. Thank you, Bonnie, for sharing your treasure with us. Our family sure hopes to return one day!"
