Guestbook comments from the owner
We recently had the very good fortune to stay at the the Hinton House in Bernard, Maine for the second year running. What a rare find - nestled in a small working fishing village - one is able to enjoy Acadia Park fully! This house is close to Southwest Harbor and about a 35 minute drive to Bar Harbor as well.
The house and grounds are absolutely meticulous! The host, Marty Lyons, is wonderfully responsive to every need but yet not obtrusive in the least! The house is quite spacious and views of the working harbor are visible from several of the windows. Thurston's Restaurant is located almost directly across the street should one feel like a wonderful Maine lobster dinner. It is also located within walking distance of a wonderful beach as well as the post office and library.
I love this house - it truly feels like a home away from home! I have rented many other homes through VRBO and Homes Away From Home but the Hinton House is by far my favorite! I simply can't say enough about this very , very special place.
Thank you, Marty, for allowing making us feel to so welcome!
