Great location for park and town!

  • 5 of 5
For our first visit to Mount Desert Island we were a bit confused about where to stay. We are so glad we chose Hulls Cove and the Great Haven Town Homes. Hulls Cove is in the perfect location of going into Acadia to hike and for visiting Bar Harbor to shop, eat and sightsee.

We have 5 children (ages 15-5) and the seven of us were very comfortable in Great Haven. The pool is a big plus (our weather didn't agree but we did swim once!). The place was clean and well stocked for our stay. There is a pizza shop just across the parking lot for an inexpensive dinner "at home" without cooking.

The rental process was a breeze and the customer service deserves more than the 5 stars. Information was delivered to us to help us plan our trip. The owners even quickly returned a few items that I left in one of the drawers!

I'd stay in Great Haven again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: I've said it before and I'll say it again: Great Haven attracts the nicest guests in the world! We know what it's like to plan a vacation in "uncharted waters", so we go the extra to make you feel confident and comfortable with your choice. In the end, the one thing our guests always tell us is that Great Haven totally exceeded their expectations. And you can't ask for better than that, can you?

Very Disappointing!

  • 2 of 5
My husband and I choose this rental based on the charming photo of the unit, its location, and because it was one of the few places available that could accommodate 6 adults on short notice. It was a huge disappointment! Our unit had half the furniture as the one pictured. The garage sale-quality furniture was old, tired, and uninviting. The kitchen floor was visibly dirty and sticky on our arrival. There was an adequate selection of pots and pans in the kitchen, but only 6 dinner, salad, and cereal plates and exactly 6 place settings of eating utensils to prepare and serve dinner for 6 people. Two days after we complained that there were only 3 wine glasses, they delivered another 3.
The TV got only 1 channel and after we asked to have it checked, the cable box was replaced. The heat cycle on the dishwasher did not work, the carpet in the bedrooms had stains and rips (possibly from the pets that are allowed?), the guest bathroom had a new fiberglass enclosure but the master bath had not been updated and the caulk around the tub was black with mildew. The beds were old and soft. My advice is to bring your own bed pillows.
The Great Haven Townhomes is a small community of 5 duplex units, some appear to be owner-occupied and others are rentals. The unit pictured may be new to the rental market but it is not "new". Note that reviews date from 2010.
In the end, we did not cash the checks that the other 2 families who stayed with us contributed because we were embarrassed that we had chosen to stay here.
On a positive note, the pool looked lovely, the location was as described and very convenient to Acadia. The wi-fi worked great, the hardwood on the main floor was nice, there were enough towels, and the garage was spacious enough for bikes, kayaks, etc.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I was quite nervous taking the whole family on a vacation so far away to a place only seen by pictures on the web page. I have to say that it was exactally as the pictures and descriptions explained that it would be.
We flew into Portland so needless to say, we had a little drive ahead of us. We reached our destination around 5:00 in the afternoon. I would have to say that everything for the most part was as described. The only complaint that I would have is that the next morning we noticed that the childrens feet were filthy. We had a 5,3 and a 10 month old. We called the office and were told that there was a mop furnished, but to no avail could we find it. Later when we called back they PROMPLTLY brought a new swifter, which I believe that they went out and bought for us. They also had some one right there when the high chair or pack n play wasn't there when we arrived.
The location was nice to be out of town a little bit. Loved every morning taking my coffee out onto the balcony to view the ocean. The children and of course the adults loved the use of the pool.
The townhouse was very comfortable for all of us, which included 5 adults and 3 children. It was nice that the children could have breakfast befor we would head out everyday and usually be gone until dark. I still laugh, beacuse the week that we were there, I think that we actually only cooked one meal there!!! Which says alot about ALL the great restaurants around the area.
Definitely would say that this was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing vacations I have ever had. The people were also the most friendly and helpful where ever we went. We would always get a laugh out of it when they would ask us where we were from with OUR accents!!!
I do not think that we really had a bad experience any where that we had gone.
I would recommend this place and area for anyone traveling...................can not wait to return to beautiful Bar Harbor

Exploring Bar Harbor!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited Bar Harbor to celebrate our anniversary. The home was beautiful, more than we needed, but had all of the things we needed, and afforded us privacy and convenience. The home is close to everything, It was clean, quiet, comfortable and reasonably priced. Wad, the property manger, was attentive and helpful to accomodate us and make sure we had everything we needed. The are is beautiful- from star gazing from the deck, to hiking and driving Acadia National Park, whale watching, the charming town of Bar Harbor- great restaurants, food and beer! WE had a great time and are so happy we chose Great Haven Properties for our stay.

Beautiful place- home and area!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited to celebrate our anniversary- the home was more than we actually needed, room wise, but it is a beautiful home, clean and roomy and all the amenities we needed and more. Wade was so helpful in offering tips on where to visit, and making sure our stay was above satisfactory, We were very close to everything. And the scenery - viewing the stars from the deck to the water, and the Acadia National Park- breathtaking! Would highly recommend this place for a visit and stay. We had a great time!

Spacious, comfortable, perfect for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5
I have a young family (two boys 2 and 3 1/2) - we had talked about Disney but right before hitting the button on purchasing airline tickets we realized it was probably too soon and that maybe we should think about something more local. We hadn't been to Bar Harbor. . .but could that make us happy after cancelling the Disney trip?

After much online searching, I found Great Haven townhouses. . .the layout and heated pool was what drew me in. After confirming dates with my husband, my parents (who were traveling with us), and Wade, we booked. And then I did what I usually do. . .began to fret. . .would there be enough to do? Would we all be comfortable? Would the kids sleep in a strange place.

All that worry for nothing. . . the place was amazing. My husband and father discussed freqently how much the loved the place. So close to everything, so comfortable, and we weren't on top of one another.

It was one of the best vacations I have ever taken. The boys had amazing experiences. Who needs disney when you have Acadia. . .oceans, rocks to climb, tidal pools to explore.

It was the perfect blend of the great outdoors (traveling around Bar Harbor and Acadia) and the comforts of home a great Haven. . .TV, internet, amenities, and the heated pool was a daily activity.

The description of the location/faciltiy was right on. It is so close to Acadia - that was so great. And downtown was just a short drive away - but also right on the free bus line. It was certainly well cleaned/maintained. My comments/feedback about what could be improved included some minor things: safety plugs for outlets being available, tea kettle, and some newer cookware were all given to Wade (Property manager who was extremely responsive to questions/needs while we were there). He welcomed and appreciated the feedback and indicated he would be implementing the suggestions.

All in all it was very comfortable and perfect for our family.

Owner's Response: Dear Anne and Family, I'm so very happy that you all enjoyed your visit to Great Haven, Acadia National Park and Downeast Maine. Your very kind comments are appreciated more than you know. I've made my shopping list of items we had discussed on the phone to make the unit safer (electrical outlet plugs), convenient (tea kettle), and valuable (new cook ware for the upcoming season). Though I absolutely LOVE DISNEY, I have to say, this part of Maine has a certain draw that is unlike anything else. We look forward to being able to assist you with future visits. Best regards in hospitality, Wade

Located in Hulls Cove, which is a village in Bar Harbor, Great Haven is ideally situated for you to get the most from your down east Maine vacation. Walking distance to Acadia National Park and only a 2 minute drive to downtown Bar Harbor, Great Haven gives you super-easy access to all the fun without having to actually live in the middle of the crowds! We are the only privately owned (non-motel) rental in the area with a heated outdoor pool as well. Great Haven is directly across the street from Hulls Cove beach, a swim-able pebble beach that's wonderful for beach-combing and sea gazing. This is a friendly, family neighborhood with a general store, seasonal restaurants, pizza shop, and post office all just a stroll away. Great Haven is also on the Island Explorer free shuttle bus line which can take you just about anywhere on the Island or in the Park so you can leave your car in your private garage and let someone else do the driving. You'll love staying at Great Haven!

Other Activities: Hiking, birdwatching, canoe, kayaking, whale watching, shopping, and world famous views for painting and photography.

Notes:
Great Haven Town home is very nicely furnished. Books, jigsaw puzzles, and board games are tucked in shelves for those rainy afternoons--though you're only a 3 mile drive to downtown Bar Harbor so browsing the dozens of unique shops is a definite option too. While we're surrounded by water--this is an island after all--the water is the Atlantic Ocean and it's cold! You're going to love our private outdoor heated pool. It's open from Memorial Day to mid October, weather permitting. We're right across the street from Hulls Cove pebble beach so ocean breezes make even the hottest day a perfect pool day. Enjoy!
