Perfect HomeAway!

  • 5 of 5
The most comfortable, best-furnished Holiday-"Appartement" I´ve ever stayed in! I can only confirm everything written above. Owner was most helpful and patient, especially as there occurred difficulties with money-transfer from Germany.
The house is absolute quiet, clean and charming. We had breakfast in the garden every day, took the bikes for rides along the coast, hiked throughout the islands etc, etc. It was just great to come back to "our" home in the evenings. We would love to come again if it wasn´t more than 3000 miles from Germany...

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Really cute, comfortable little house, with a surprising amount of sleeping space and comfortable living area. The kitchen is better equipped than mine at home. No internet or TV, so I had to wait to see the finale of Breaking Bad!

Off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5
This vacation rental is exactly as the pictures show. It was peaceful, well kept and very comfortable. The house has an open living and dining area which was great for family dinners and hanging out when the sun goes down. Even though the home as not internet or cable, there was so much to do in the area and the weather was perfect, we didn't even realize we were without them.
We spent every day exploring and relazing. Kayaking and swimming in Great Long Pond and Echo Lake, searching for quietside hidden beaches, Seawall, Ship Harbor Trail, Bass Harbor and the lighthouse, Bernard... there was SO MUCH to do and it was nice to always come back to a peaceful, off the beaten path retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in your home!! Kelli, the caretaker was wonderful. She saved the day whenever we needed her...always with a smile! The owners have made many renovations to the home that make it a comfortable, easy to clean rental. Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation home with us!!

Lovely, comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This rental was the perfect home away from home for our family during our one-week visit to Acadia. The house is adorable, and the furnishings are up-to-date, clean, bright, and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need, and the house has a great collection of guide books, games, and dvds. Wild roses bloom in the yard, and we woke every morning to the song of a wide variety of birds.

Bass Harbor is easily accessible to Southwest Harbor's amenities, including a playground, and to swimming at Echo Lake, which makes it ideal for families with young children. Staying on the "quiet side" of the island means you have more time to enjoy the park and the beauty of the island.

The owners of the house are extremely pleasant and easy to work with. When we thought we might need to switch the week of our rental, they made every effort to accomodate us, calling other renters to see if anyone would be willing to swap weeks. We received our security deposit back just a few days after our departure. The goodwill of the owners is evident too in the reasonableness of the rental fee. Last summer we stayed at another island rental for the same weekly price, but found it out-of-date, less conviently located and much less comfortable than this house. They could charge more, but they don't, which says alot about them.

All in all, our stay at the house was wonderful, and I can say in all honesty that we didn't want to leave!

. All the ameneties of home; clean, comfy and well stocked. While tucked away on a quiet private road, it's very accessible to town, restaurants,Bar Habor, the sea, and all the wonders of Acadia. Lots of helpful maps,guidebooks,& brochures on hand to give newcomers "the scoop" on great hikes,bike&equipment rentals, day trips, and where to find the best lobster dinners. A most enoyable stay. All we could've asked for was more time!
