  • What a quiet, beautiful, and wonderful place!

    "Without a doubt this was a wonderful place to stay (and I agree with a previous poster- the pictures really don't do it justice!) When I was a kid, my family would always visit Mount Desert Island, and I'm glad I had the chance to visit this beautiful property. First- the location is very good. My favorite part was that I could fly into the Bar Harbor airport and be at the house in under ten minutes. It's still a manageable drive to anywhere on the island too. But the location's best asset is the view westward into the bay. The sunsets were amazing, and there was plenty of room for exploring with a beautiful terraced garden. Each room in the house is designed to look out on the water (the view from the Master Bedroom is great). There is a deck facing westward that was wonderful for grilling too. The house had high ceilings and beautiful wooden walls. As a house it can easily fit eight. There's a room downstairs with TV and a few couches, which are good for lazy nights after hiking, biking, or kayaking. The house is about ten minutes from the town of Somesville, and a little more than twenty minutes by car to Bar Harbor. All the Acadia sights are an easy drive. So it's close enough to everything on the island while remaining it's quiet charm. Since moving south it's gotten harder to make it to Mount Desert Island, but I"m hoping to make it next year."

  • 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."
