Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5
This house easily accommodated 11 people with plenty of space and facilities. It is not the Ritz or the Grand, and it is not a mansion. It is homely and comfortable and in an excellent location. Group activities and individual freedom was easily achieved. The three bathrooms meant that there were minimal waiting times. The beds were all very comfortable and the rooms airy. The house needs some TLC, but as it is towards the end of the season, that is to be expected. We would all stay here again.

Seamist

  • 4 of 5
Seamist is a great place for a larger group and you can't beat the location. We enjoyed our time there and it was great not to get in the car and drive. We took the Island Explorer for all but 1 trip into Acadia and walked to everything else. I didn't miss trying to find parking at the popular sites along the loop road. Seamist is an older home with an older feel but its still a good place to stay. We enojyed having the convience of a home away from home and would stay there again.

2010 vacation for 13 - Excellent Location*

  • 4 of 5
The Location could not be better - I mean Excellent - walk around town, catch the bus (do not have to drive once you get there)! I put my AAA in a location where the next traveler could use if they wanted. Lots to do. Ice Cream choices, everything from seafood, non seafood and oh the desserts (Chocolate in a bag share with 3 I would suggest at Michelle's). The actual rental property very nice for big group we had 13 total - 4 families. However, I was on the first floor-the "3 baths" seem misleading as there was no bathroom on the first floor. Other than that - Very Good.

Great place for family reunion

  • 4 of 5
Seamist was a great place for a family reunion and made a stress-free Christmas. It was very clean and we found lots of things to do at the house and in Bar Harbor. Great location.

Location isn't everything

Location isn't everything

The location of this house is indeed excellent for those wanting to be close to the downtown and harbor action of Bar Harbor. In fact, it's hard to imagine a better location than this one. We rented during the high season of 2009. The house is as spacious as described, and gave us opportunities for privacy when we wanted it for the four couples and two young people in our family party. However, we would not rent this house again.

The largest single issue for us was the mice. We understand that old houses can have mice, but we also know that it is possible to control them, and to clean up after them. This did not seem to be be happening. Cupboards and utensil drawers contained substantial accumulations of mouse droppings along with the dishes and utensils. We washed and sanitized everything in the kitchen before using it, and stored clean items on the dining table while we were there.

Other issues pale by comparison, but the lack of lighting for the uneven, brick front steps seemed hazardous, and there were some areas, such as the third floor carpet, that would have benefited greatly from better cleaning.

We outlined our concerns on our check-out form, but did not receive a response to them.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, we did not know the problem until they had checked out. Glad they liked the location.

Maine getaway

  • 5 of 5
My group was made up of 6 long time friends. This house was perfect for us, each person had their own room. The house is within walking distance of everything:grocery store, coffee shops, stores, restaurants, shuttle bus to Acadia National Park and the rest of the island. The house has plenty of room to all gather together and places to be alone to read, nap or whatever. We didn't use the car while we were there choosing to walk everywhere or use the free shuttles. The house is charming. The property looked just like the pictures and was well maintained and clean. The owner was quick to respond when we had questions about the area. I would recommend this property. There is bicycling, lots of restaurants, shops and things to do.
