  • Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else

    "We always look for privacy and quiet when we book vacation rentals, and this one certainly fits the bill. Add charming and beautiful, with unobstructed views of a private lake and the woods of Acadia, and we found the perfect place. An easy and scenery-filled ride to Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor and to all sections of Acadia, we enjoyed every minute of our week long stay. The owner was helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. Book it now."

  • 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."

  • Charming and cozy

    "This is a bright and cheery, cozy and charming cottage on a quiet road. It is surrounded by fields, the view of a beautiful neighboring farmhouse, and the ocean only a short walk away. The owners were readily available for questions and suggestions of things to do and places to go. It felt very private with a stunning starry sky at night. I highly recommend this as a vacation spot for small families, honeymooners, or good friends. ~Ellie"

  • BREATHTAKING - Wonderful House!!

    "Our family of eight stayed at the Barn at Mainstay in the month of March. We have been vacationing in Maine for about 20 years in different cabins and homes. We can say with all certainty that "the Barn at Mainstay" will be our "permanent" vacation house! The views are spectacular. The home was clean and the furnishings were all so nice. We loved daily shell hunting and the kids loved playing in the very big yard and woods in the back. Our family definitely recommends this beautiful home!"
