Far Niente is an excellent choice if you are looking for something away from downtown – but still close to everything. The ocean is at the end of the street. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are only a few minutes by car. It’s contemporary, comfy and clean. The fenced in yard was perfect for our dog. The people who own it were pleasant, honest and easy to deal with. We really enjoyed staying here and would recommend it.

A slice of Vacationland, The Way Life Should Be!

What you see is what you get! A lovely little cottage a minutes walk away from the beach. All the amenities are provided for you in this well maintained property. Depending on the time of year there are bugs, but then again you are in a cottage in the woods. The star gazing is incredible, especially during the new moon when we were there.

Long walks along the rocky coast are in your future. As is doing nothing and relaxing to max. A very inspiring place.
Owner's Response: Thank you . Always great to hear . Please do come back .

All the best
John

Our perfect nest

We spend a week (some times two) on the island every year, for some ten years now. Far Niente is our home away (!) from home. We find it well appointed and comfortable, with everything we need and nothing we do not. The aesthetic is gloriously free of both the frou-frou and the brusque rustic so often found in vacation rentals. We find it just right for a couple, although I feel a little wistful that we've never brought a friend to sleep in the quaint detached cabin bedroom, ultimately I look forward to the relaxation of having this little nest to ourselves. Oh Far Niente, why couldn't you be closer?
Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Jackie .

Far Neinte

We stayed at Far Neinte last Fall and promise to go back. My wife thought the place was romantic, I found it to be comfortable and relaxing. The home located only a short drive from the National park and the town of Bar Harbor made our daily excursions stress free and easily navigated. Fall colors at Acadia are breathtaking. The one day we decided to just stay in and read and do some home cooking was only broken up by a walk to the ocean which was only minutes away. A very quiet and relaxing place to stay.
Owner's Response: Thank you . Please come back soon .

Homne away from Home!

I have stayed at Far Niente many times and have been renting from John since 2005. My standards are high. They are exceeded every time I stay here. Why?

Location: It’s a few minutes into town, a few minutes to the park, yet in a quiet neighborhood, away from it all and Frenchman’s Bay is at the end of the street.

Comfort: It is always spotless when I arrive. The loft bedroom is my favorite. The detached bedroom is cool in a rustic way. The living /dining room and kitchen are perfect to unwind in after a long day playing in the park. It has everything I need.

Dog Friendly: The patio deck and fenced in yard is perfect for downtime with my dog.

Friendly, Honest & Easy to Deal With: What you see is what you get. John will answer your questions, help you any way he can, make suggestions when you need them, and stay out of your way so you can enjoy your vacation.

Staying at Far Niente is what a vacation should be: low stress, comfortable, convenient and dog friendly. You won’t be disappointed.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much . Always great to hear .
