WELL WORTH THE WAIT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I waited a long time to rent this home - everytime we were available, it wasn't. But this year we lucked out- celebrated our 40th anniversary here and it was well worth the wait! The home is beautiful and extremely comfortable and very clean - and our hosts were wonderful. Shelly made us - and especially me - feel like we were old friends. And of course, Rudy - their beloved Golden Retriever - made being away from our dog easier. Unfortunately our weather didn't cooperate the way we had hoped it would - on arrival, it was very hot and humid, making it almost impossible to relax on the patio and a few days later we had rain - lots of rain, and fog and the temps bottomed out. But we were able to get out and explore neighboring towns, Acadia National Park and even visited Campobello, the summer home of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. It was great having such a wonderful base to come back to in the evening. If we ever get the chance to visit Maine again - we would definitely stay at Ebb Tide. Shelly and Larry, thank you for letting us stay in your home away from home.

A WONDERFUL RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at this home along with our dog. We couldn't have asked for a more
comfortable home in a beautiful setting. The view of the harbor was great and the gardens were
lovely. Everything possible was provided and not just starter supplies. When it got unexpectedly
hot Shelley bought extra fans to make it more comfortable. She was always eager to offer tips
and suggestions for activities. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby without going into
Bar Harbor. There are good hiking opportunities nearby as well. I would highly recommend this
property. We use vrbo frequently and this was one of the best homes and owners we have
encountered.

GREAT HONEYMOON LOCALE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Ebb TIde. It was just perfect! A great setting right on Bass Harbor. The hosts were very warm, gracious and welcoming. A great location near Bass Harbor Light House and just a few minutes drive from Southwest Harbor. The property was very clean and well represented by the photos. We enjoyed sunsets from the adirondack chairs, fires in the family room and the soaking tub. We will be back!

CALL IT SERENDIPITY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I needed an emergency vacation; Ebb Tide had an emergency cancellation. The result was a relaxing, restorative week that could not have been better. The reviews are not exaggerated and the house is as beautiful and peaceful as you imagine when scrolling through the photo album. Shelley and Larry (and let us not omit Rudy) were very welcoming, helpful hosts who provided great information on the area while being ultra respectful of our privacy. The house is fully stocked -- they have thought of everything!
Do I need to say that we did not want to leave?

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
To say this wonderful house is perfect would be an understatement. Great layout; very private; everything necessary for a comfortable stay provided; spotlessly clean; spectacular views of Bass Harbor and the drama of the changing tides; gorgeous gardens; and a beautiful yard with lots of birds. And, . . . Shelley the owner, was always patient and helpful, making every effort to make sure our stay was just lovely without ever intruding. All in all, my spouse and I had a wonderfully romantic and restful stay.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our Golden Retriever and I just returned from a week at Ebb Tide. If you read all of the other reviews about this wonderful place then I would just repeat all the great things said about it. Shelley and Larry are super people who made our stay comfortable and relaxing. The house, garden, and the water view were perfect. We came to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary and to tour Acadia National Park. We loved the house so much that the last day of our vacation we just stayed there and relaxed. The pictures are accurate but the real thing is even more impressive. I loved how every inch of space was used with taste and beauty. Our dog also enjoyed himself with Shelley and Larry's dog, Rudy.
