Cosy and practical!

  • 5 of 5
Great customer service! A nice basket of goodies was waiting for us when we arrived. Mary and Tom are very helpful in providing info about restaurants (Thurston's for lobster, The Common Good for popovers for breakfast). The kayaks they provided us were put to good use! We went kayaking four times at Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Pretty Marsh and Bass Harbor. The studio is clean, spacious and comfortable. We had a great time!

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I settled right in at Manset Studio. The owners, Mary and Tom, are great and have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and inviting. Kitchen amenities are plentiful if you decide to eat in and there is a nice grill in the side yard. The bed is very comfortable and the wi-fi works great. The private location is pretty central to many outdoor activities and you don't have to go far to enjoy the various harbors and coves. We took advantage of the Free Island Explorer bus when we had gone for a bike ride that was a little longer and harder than anticipated. We just boarded the bus with our bikes and were dropped off right at the end of the driveway to Manset Studio. The kayaks provided were fun and easy to carry on my sedan using the mounts provided.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at Manset Studio during our truly wonderful vacation to Maine! While the studio is attached to the owner's home, we found it to be very private and serene. The owner, Mary, was easily accessible from the time of booking. Her hospitality extended beyond our stay, as she was even kind enough to send me a pair of shoes I left behind!

I'd recommend a vacation to Maine to just about anyone! We had so much fun preparing our own lobster dinner (bought from a lobsterman just down the road), and we found the apartment to have everything we needed. The beauty of Maine and Acadia National Park far exceeded our expectations. So many great memories, many thanks to the owners!

Lovely stay on the Quietside of MDI!

  • 5 of 5
Our time at Manset Studio was so happy and relaxing! We enjoyed many of the hiking and carriage trails that Acadia had to offer but were always so glad to come "home" to Manset Studio. It is a very private place with your own side yard, fire pit, and boats. But, we most enjoyed coming back, cooking a meal, having some wine, planning our next days adventures. Mary was incredibly helpful with suggestions on best first day "starter hikes." She gave thoughtful recommendations on restaurants, best lobster (Thurstons), great blueberry pancake breakfast (Sea Biscuits Cafe), desserts (Quietside Cafe). Manset had everything we needed, Mary even provided a basket of supplies... coffee, milk, fruit, cheese and bread... so we could settle in, get our bearings before finding the local market. It was a wonderful location and lovely quiet cabin.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5
We came to the Manset studio to have our honeymoon and had a wonderful time! The place looks exactly like the pictures on the site, and we found it spotlessly clean, with nice towels, linens and books! The bed is comfy, as is the living-room futon couch. The shower has great pressure and lots of hot water! When we arrived there were brownies and fresh organic berries on the counter and a bottle of nice white wine in the fridge! It was a lovely start to our two-week stay there.

We used the outdoor grill, which was clean and easy to use, as well as the fire-pit in the evenings. (Don't forget the bug spray!)

The location is very quiet, with lots of birds (and a few deer!) all around. Echo lake and Long Pond (for swimming and kayaking) are minutes away by car, as is Wonder Land, where the tide pools are magnificent! We found Southwest Harbor to be more to our liking than Bar Harbor. It doesn't have as many restaurants and shops, but it has a lot less tourists!

I would highly recommends this place, and plan to return!

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Manset Studio. The owners were very thoughtful, providing just about everything that one could think of, from a welcome basket with goodies to games and movies and a fully equipped kitchen. The unit is very private, with a yard, fire pit, and grill, and situated down a gravel road well away from the nearby small highway that leads to the beautiful Seawall area of the park. We (a young couple with a baby) would highly recommend it.
