Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a week at Deer Run mid of June this year. Immediately when you drive on the property you are struck by how nice everything is and the when you open the door to the home you will realize that it has been furnished with care and is very clean. Everything we needed was there. The location was perfect for us, quiet, near a trail and a quick drive to all park entrances and downtown Bar Harbor. The owner has a studio apartment above the garage on the property. She is very nice and concerned that all guests have a wonderful time. She was never intrusive only very helpful whenever we had a question. In fact we would have loved to spend more time with her. We brought our 5 year old son and he had a blast. We had a great first visit to Maine and are happy we stumbled across this cottage.

Hopefully this time it took my review. I apologize for the delay. Please let me know if it made it through and the 3rd time is a charm.

Perfect Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
We chose Deer Run based on the reviews of previous tenants and we weren't disappointed. The home is clearly well cared for and in a very clean state. We arrived early, running ahead and away (we hoped) of Hurricane Irene, to find the owner, Diane, tending to the lovely garden ahead of the storm. She very graciously allowed us occupy the property earlier than agreed and we quickly settled in. After a week in a very beautiful but more rustic location, Deer Run was the perfect compliment to our Maine vacation. Everything is as advertised or better and Diane went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and at home.
As for the location, it is nicely placed on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island. Although we visited Bar Harbor on several occasions, we didn't want to stay there because of the crowds (you may want to avoid it when the cruise ships are in). After all it's not far by car ( ~20 mins). There is a free bus to much of the Island, but you have to connect in Bar Harbor and we thought that it was too time consuming. There is so much to do on MDI but our favorites were hiking the national park trails, sunrise on Cadillac Mountain (dress warm and don't think for a minute you're the only one with the same idea!), whale watching, and eating out. Our favorite restaurants were Havana (expensive but fantastic!), Two Cats (wonderful breakfast), and the West Street Cafe (good, inexpensive lunch).
You can see our star rating but if you asked, "Would you go out of your way to stay at Deer Run again?" The answer would be "Yes!"

Owner's Response: It was a joy to have this family stay at my home and I liked to hear about there daily adventures.
Before flying overseas Sharon and the girls stopped at the Portland Mall shopping for college.
They are now both stricken with "Empty Nest" feelings. What a beautiful family.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you Sharon and your brother. I appreciate your review and hope it helps other visitors contemplating a visit here. I assume you made it home safely and happy to see you enjoyed yourself, even though you didn't see seals this time of the year, but you had a beautiful walk to the bay.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four enjoyed our visit to Mt. Desert Island and were very happy with this property. Diane has made this home very comfortable for her guests. It is a cozy home, absolutely spotless and had anything that we might have needed. The location was great as we were able to easily get around the island and enjoy all that it had to offer. Some of the highlights of the week were the beautiful hikes, biking on the carraige trails, walking on the sand bar to Bar Island, going to the top of Cadillac mountain, and of course the delicious lobster and chowder! Can't wait to return.

Quiet, clean and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5
Deer Run was a great home away from home. It was very clean! Kitchen was well equipped and living area was comfortable. The home was a peaceful place to stay as well. It is located in a wooded area, away from the main highway but perfectly located so that you can easily get to all the main attractions on Mount Dessert Island/Acadia National Park. We enjoyed meeting Diane. She gave us some tips on things to do and places to eat that were great. We appreciated the tips. Although she resides in a small home adjacent to Deer Run, she gave us the privacy you would expect. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return. What else can I say...CLEAN, PEACEFUL, GREAT LOCATION. Thanks Diane!

This home is within easy access to Acadia National Park with hiking trails and over 50 miles of carriage roads for biking. If you prefer, utilize the Island Explorer, a free eco-friendly bus shuttle service which is within walking distance to explore the village of Bar Harbor.

There is a fresh water lake with sand beach about 3 miles away and lots of shopping to do on those rainy days or sit and relax and do nothing. We also have Kebo Valley Golf Course with a full pro shop and clubhouse restaurant on the Island.
