Recent Down East reviews

  • So welcoming in every way

    "We spent a week at NortherNest; my husband, our portuguese water dog and our two beagles! I'm not sure who enjoyed the 'nest' more; my husband and I, or the dogs! The moment we entered the 'nest', there were welcoming touches everywhere; from the water bowl adorned with dog biscuits, to the crisply made beds with lovely linens and bedcovers, to the freshly cut and arranged garden flowers throughout the house. Our stay was relaxing and peaceful beyond words. As some have already said, the pictures just don't fully account for the beautiful setting, the amazing beach, enclosed deck with access to the pup area, and proximity to Mt Desert Island and Acadia Nat'l Park. We explored all of the island and the park everyday. What a pleasure to have our beagles off leash enjoying time on the deck with us! We will definitely return!"

  • Great stay on MDI

    "We recently stayed at this wonderful home. The previous reviews did a nice job of capturing the benefits/features of this home so I will hit just a few highlights. Found Southwest Harbor to be very quaint and nice break from Bar Harbor. Good jumping off point to all points on the island. There are a handful of restaurants in town (we enjoyed Eat-a-Pita ... it is much more than pitas). There is a nice wine shop with a wide selection of wine and cheeses. Fire pit in back. Nice way to relax after a full day ... plenty of firewood on hand. Family room very comfy with leather couch and chairs, fireplace, large TV. There is a grocery store in town but if you plan on doing a lot of cooking we recommend that you try Hannaford's in Bar Harbor. Suzanne was great. Easily accessible by phone or email. We would definitely stay here again should we return to the area."

  • Wonderful experience

    "We stayed over Columbus Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The location of the house is amazing, right on the water. The sunsets were gorgeous and we really enjoyed sitting out on the porch in the evening. The house was dog friendly, which was a huge plus because we were able to bring our two dogs. We didn't have the right weather to be able to use the kayaks or row boat, but wandered the beach right in front of the house and did some exploring. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet retreat with amazing views!"

  • Awesome location! Very comfortable!

    "I was in town to run the MDI Marathon and came up with my son. My friend ,her son, and his service dog angel also accompanied us for the trip. We had plenty of space and were so excited to be so close to downtown Bar Harbor. The house is perfect, super clean, beds are so comfy, kitchen has plenty of dishes, etc. I have nothing but good things to say and would come back again in a second. It's going to be hard to leave! It just feels like home! Owners were great and live close by so if you need anything they are available. Wifi was great to have because my phone service was not too great in the area. There is a great little binder with info and a basket full of maps and pamphlets for tons of attractions in the area. Ive stayed in about 15 home away properties and this is number 1 on the list for me! Thanks so much!!!"
