Recent Acadia reviews

  • Well maintained & located property for a stay on Mt. Desert Island

    "The cottage was just as pictured and our family enjoyed our stay, particularly taking advantage of the views, well equipped kitchen, and laundry facilities. The home felt very secluded, but gave quick access to Southwest Harbor and other key points of the island. Kathryn was very responsive throughout the process and left perfectly detailed directions. We'd recommend to families and would enjoy going back some day!"

  • Perfect Vacation

    "First, I must agree with other reviews that say the pictures do not fully capture the beauty of this location and this house, as well as the other positive comments made. The views, the sunsets, and the house are all amazing. The weather was lovely...warm during the day, cool nights with windows open. The house is located close to all the things we wanted to do while in the area, it is an easy drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor (about 15 minutes). We were able to hike and kayak in various locations in Acadia, see the beautiful sunrise on Cadillac Mountain, and visit the great town of Bar Harbor and its wonderful restaurants each day. The house is very comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is fully stocked, there wasn't a thing we needed...and it is stocked with quality dishes and other kitchen supplies. The owner supplies all linens and towels, and the quality of both are very nice. The views were spectacular from the deck. We made sure we were back to the house each night for the beautiful sunsets, there wasn't any place we wanted to be other than the chairs on that deck. We had a wonderful trip to the area, it was a perfect vacation!"

  • A beautiful property

    "This is my families 2nd year to have our Thanksgiving here and we love it. We come from NYC and Caribou Maine, Open kitchen, dining room and living room space gives everyone an opportunity to visit without walls. Plenty of windows on the front to enjoy the Pond view. Small playground for small children. 2 levels with bedrooms and additional family room on ground level. Very clean and neat. Wood stove in the living room area was perfect for November weather to add a little extra touch of warmth and holiday spirit. Owner is awesome to work with!"

  • Quiet, beautiful waterside compound

    "We just got back from a wonderful week in Mt Desert! We had 14 in our family from ages 3-78. The good: *The view! Spectacular during high tide! Definitely recommend kayaking in Squid Cove out to Squid Island) We saw 2 seals:) Water is so calm. We were so amazed how much the water came in and out (and how quickly!) between high/low tide. *The location - quiet area of the island and close to Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor is a zoo! *Crabs, hermit crabs, little crayfish near the shore:) Hoping to see more sea creatures. Saw one starfish! *Kitchen was well stocked (appreciated some spices in the pantry - we left a few ourselves) *Beds were comfortable *Comfortable living area in new house *Board games and lawn games (croquet & bocci - the kids had a blast playing both on the lawn area next to the new house) Not so good: * In the old cottage, had issues with opening/closing the door in the kitchen *Locking doors was a bit confusing - we didn't end up locking up any of the doors - I know some of my family was not comfortable with that. *There should be some directions on using the fireplaces in the old cottage. We had smoke coming in the cabin because we didn't realize to tie up the chain for the flue. Even when we tied the chain up, we still had some smoke coming in the rooms (there's a fireplace in the master bedroom, family room and the bedroom with the queen + 2 bunk beds). Bummer! The bedrooms smelled smokey for several days:( *Mosquitos!!! Bring your mosquito spray + anti-itch medicine! We probably each got at least 15 bites! More noticeable during low tide. *Furniture for new house was not put outside but was quickly fixed with a phone call. I think we were the first ones using the houses for the season so things were not quite prepared. *Bathrooms/bedrooms in the old cottage were not as tidy as the new house. Cobwebs, bugs in shower, dust in the master bedroom. I realize we are in the wilderness here but we expect it to be super clean. I'm guessing the houses were not cleaned just before we got there. *Had some issues with animal noises in the middle of the night. Raccoons under the baseboards in the master bedroom - terrible sound! Google it! In the master bedroom in the new house, we had mice making scratching sounds but luckily it only lasted 2 nights but still! We even had a sound machine and we woke up to the scratching sounds:( Overall, we had a memorable vacation!!"
