The house was great. Clean and well maintained. It was everything described on the VRBO site. No bad surprises. Jesse was easy to work with, and provided great customer service. We did a lot of communicating leading up to the trip, and once there, everything went well, so we didn't have to bother him at all during the stay.
It was a relaxing place to return to after running around on the island all day. Nice and quiet - in the woods. It has neighbors, but lots of space (and trees) between houses. Plenty of space to spread out, and you have your choice of staying inside or hanging out on the covered porch in front, the deck out back or in the back yard by the little fire-pit. The property does have 3 cows (steer) which were fun to watch and listen to. Our daughter loved it - and would ask for the "cows" each morning.
It is within a mile of some of the trails which was fantastic! And there are lots of other trails really close by. Plenty of activities to keep you busy without having to go to the more populated areas around Bar Harbor. There is a butterfly garden very close by that was really pretty. Close to a grocery store, close to Southwest Harbor. You'll want a car or bike to get to Southwest Harbor and the aforementioned activities though. You can walk, but it'll take a while. Good restaurants close by, but a fully stocked kitchen (utensils and appliances) if you want to cook for yourself!
If you want to go to Bar Harbor or other points on the eastern side of the island - figure about a 25-30 min drive.
If you are looking for a nice, quiet place away from lots of people - I would recommend this place. It's not on the water, but it's in the woods, which is just as relaxing.
