  • Fabulous House!

    "We loved this house, and would recommend it for so many reasons. My favorite spot was the deck off the kitchen. Wine in hand, we snacked and chatted there every night, watching the sun go down. It's the epitome of relaxation. We cooked for ourselves most nights, as our days were so full of hiking and sightseeing. The kitchen has everything you'd want. Five of us shared the house, but it's huge and never felt crowded. Lots of space downstairs for everyone to watch the game or whatever is on TV. We stayed for five nights - which was perfect. There are many things to do and see. The island is small, so it's a short drive to get anywhere, but we loved that the house felt remote. It's on the "quiet side" of the island. From the house, you can walk down to a little path that's part of the nature preserve, reaching the shore within 30 minutes at most. The shady trails looked like fairies could pop out at any moment. There are many other trails close by, and the beautiful Echo Lake is just minutes away. We enjoyed a lobster dinner at Beal's Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor, but my favorite meal was lobster rolls at Thurston's Lobster Pound down in Bernard at the tip of the western part of the island. Don't hesitate. This is a terrific place to stay."

  • All the comforts of home!

    "Patten Bay Chalet is everything we had read about and more. Dealing with Mac to secure the rental was so easy and attended to beyond what I expected. It was pleasant talking with the owner prior to our arrival. I informed Mac we were traveling with two chefs and that an equipped kitchen was a must. We were assured it was and that proved to be absolutely accurate. The home was perfectly sized for the seven of us. We had plenty of room to spread out as well as sufficient space to all hang out together. We had stayed on Mt. Desert Island last year and were unsure if we would be as happy on the mainland. We traveled back and forth to both locations with ease For anyone looking for a quiet, convenient, bright, well equipped house for a vacation, I would highly recommend this home. Thanks to Mac and Deb for a smooth rental process and for taking the time to check in and assure that it lived up to our expectations."

  • Best July 4th Ever

    "We rented this place before and loved it so much we came back. The 4th of July celebrations in Castine were an unexpected perk as we had a spectacular view of the fireworks from the deck of the cottage. There was also a very sweet parade on the town green with children in creative, homemade costumes, a band concert, and a sailboat race we watched in the afternoon. The festivities were old-fashioned and small town. The owners checked with us to make sure we had everything we needed. We'll be back again."

  • Flying Jib in August 2016

    "Overall, we had an excellent week at Flying Jib. We were three families (12 people total - 6 adults, 6 children). We enjoyed the rustic-ness of the old part of the house! The pictures really show what to expect. The kitchen served well, and was well equipped with dishes, cooking items, etc. We used the propane lobster cooker many times during our stay, as well as the grill. The kids loved the option of a pool (heated too!) after a day of sightseeing in Acadia and surrounding areas. Being able to walk to the beach was great (although the path could use a little maintenance - overgrowth). We also walked through the Outlook property to go to the beach area. Really fun at low tide! We were surprised at how nice the view was from the deck/porch. The pictures with the listing don't do it justice! Bathrooms were plentiful for our large group, and the house is very well stocked with lots of towels, extra sheets, dishtowels and pool towels. They also have the house stocked with TP, paper towels, dish soap, etc. John was super helpful in our communications and planning. He responded within just hours every time I sent a question. I do agree with others that the internet could use some enhancing - usable, but slow. Future renters do need to be aware that this is an older home, by the sea, so there are some mold issues (basement area)."
