Wonderful vacation!

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!

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

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

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.

I could not ask for a better place to spent this week of rest. The studio, surrounded by trees, is very peaceful and private, however near everything: village, convenience stores, hiking trails and seashore. Everything is cozy, clean and nothing is missing. The owners are very welcoming and generous. A basket filled with delicacies was waiting for me at my arrival, a delicate attention I truly appreciated. I will definitely come back!
