  • Great Bar Harbor Stay!

    "Our girls getaway was great at the Acadia Getaway House! Nice house layout, private patio and yard, super Weber grill for easy dinners after a day biking, shopping and sightseeing at Acadia National Park. The House is at the perfect location for carriage trails, entrance to Cadillac Mountain and downtown Bar Harbor - nice Catholic Church for Sunday Mass was an added bonus. Owners are easy to work with and very responsive - I would recommend this property for anyone wishing to experience the beauty of Bar Harbor and surrounding areas! It was a perfect week living in a comfortable home surrounded by nature, fresh air, nice people and as much exercise, restaurants and scenic beauty that you could handle!"

  • Perfect Get Away From It All

    "I was looking for a quiet place to spend a week with my girls (12 and 15) that would be peaceful, fun, and close enough to Bar Harbor to visit but far enough to feel like we were getting away from it all. I really could not have found a more perfect place; John and Liz made us feel so welcomed it was like being in our own home, not a rental, right from the start. The house itself is really beautifully situated; the beach is right down a path out the back steps, the sun sparkles through the windows in the mornings, the stars sparkle at night and the waves, when it's windy, will put you to sleep. It's on a hushed country road with few cars; the quiet in the air is stunning, especially at night. We also fell in love with the dogs - especially Maddie, who we miss - it was like a fringe benefit! Everything we needed was there; bikes to ride and wood for the outdoor fire pit and even fresh eggs from the chickens. We stopped at Tradewinds in Blue Hill on the way for food - which I recommend - but the cottage has what you would need otherwise - towels and sheets and blankets and a kitchen stocked with the basics, pots and pans and utensils, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. Pretty much whatever you need is there, making it a lot easier to unpack and unwind. Liz and John are great hosts, the house is sweet and cozy, and it was as perfect a week as I could have imagined. If you are trying to avoid the bustle of Bar Harbor but want to be close enough to get there for dinner or day trips (about 45 minutes), you can't do better. Liz also recommended a boat trip in Bass Harbor (Island Cruises) which was an absolute must, a great way to spend an afternoon. Thanks Liz and John for helping us make lifelong memories, we hope to come back!"

  • Comfortable time in this clean and quiet duplex

    "We had a wonderful stay in this home. It was well-cared for and the owner was great to work with. He was prompt to respond to questions and had helpful information for our stay. He is an honest and straight-up guy and clearly cares that your stay is good. The house is a two story duplex with three bedrooms. The beds were comfortable as was the living room furniture. The house was very comfortable to just hang out in. The only reason we deducted one star is because the kitchen is very small. That would not be a problem for those who don't intend to do a lot of cooking, but it made meal preparation and clean up more challenging since we did most of our meals at home for our family of four. They did have plenty of nice dishes and tableware as well as a lobster pot for those who would want to prepare their own. The small toaster oven even has a convection setting, although it is obviously too small for baking a chicken, making a pie, etc. The owner has provided 5 bicycles for renters to use, and we had a great ride around the Acadia Park on the Schoodic Peninsula side. There was no way to adjust the heights of the seats for those bikes needing a wrench, and so it would be a nice addition to have one available. A couple of the bikes need a little work on the gear shift mechanisms, especially if one plans to take a really long ride. They worked well enough for our shorter tour, and we had a good time. They have a new fire pit in the back, and although we bought wood to use, never got to try it out. We left the wood for the next renters, but it does look like it would be a fun place to sit around and relax in the evening. There is a small grocery store in Winter Harbor with decent fruits and vegetables, and they have a small but nice farmer's market on Tuesday mornings. The Hannaford grocery in Ellsworth has everything you can want. Winter Harbor is very small, quiet and cute. We ate a really nice lunch at the J. M. Gerrish restaurant. It took about an hour to get to Mt. Desert Island where we did a lot of hiking. We appreciated coming back to the peacefulness of Winter Harbor after the hustle in Bar Harbor and the Park. We would definitely recommend this home and would be happy to stay there again. It is comfortable to live in and the owner is excellent."
