Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 2-year-old daughter and I absolutely loved Avalonia. Great attention to detail by the owners. The grounds were immaculate and beautiful and the lodging was clean, well-equipped and very comfortable. The children's room was a real surprise -- it has everything a young family needs to keep kids entertained (toys, books, stuffed animals, a tent and more). The location was perfect: We were just minutes away from the entrance to the national park, a comfortable distance away from the hustle-and-bustle of Bar Harbor, and mere minutes away from some really great restaurants and fine amenities (IGA, a winery, a playground, and more). If anyone asks us where to stay on Mount Desert Island, Avalonia is the place!

Great place to base our vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at Avalonia. The apartment was exceptionally clean and was the perfect vacation base for our family of four. The view was amazing and the kids loved exploring the shore at low tide. We enjoyed being in the backyard and relaxing and enjoying the view and amenities. We had a wonderful time visiting Acadia and Bar Harbor and Avalonia was only a few minutes drive from both. We highly recommend Avalonia!

Incredible family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The photos don't do this property justice. We really made the right decision when trying to decide between a cottage in the downtown Bar Harbor area and Avalonia right on Frenchman's Bay. The apartment was very clean and comfortable for my husband and I wiith our 11 and 13-year-old boys.

We only had a week in the area and spent much of our time hiking and biking in Acadia National Park. This was very unfortunate, since I really would have liked more time relaxing on this property as well!! Typically after a week-long vacation we are rested and satisfied, ready to return home and be in our own home...not this time! I really could have used an extra couple of days just to do more kayaking (my favorite thing was to wake up early in the morning and kayak before the kids woke up...lots of lobstermen out at that time!) and to enjoy the beauty of the property and have more campfires!

The apartment was stocked with everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The kids' room was amazing! And I loved waking up to a view of the water each morning - even if the sun did come up super early! I felt rested and energized.

Even though we weren't expecting 85 - 90 degree heat in Maine (we picked a doozy of a week to visit - the heat wave made the hiking and biking a little more of a challenge), the apartment had several big fans and lots of windows to cool things down. That was much appreciated, as it was HOT.

Didn't get the chance to meet the owners, but dealing with Arthur over the phone and via e-mail was pleasant and helpful. I rarely like to vacation the same area twice (there are so many places in the world to see!) but my family and I are for the first time ever considering coming back...we couldn't get enough of Avalonia, Acadia and the Bar Harbor area. That, and asmy husband will verify, I actually cried when we had to leave. THAT'S quite a testament!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family LOVED our stay at Avalonia. Great property and location. Gorgeous view and very clean, well-maintained property. We saw a bald eagle and a seal and enjoyed fishing and searching for crabs as well as fires and roasting s'mores. Great, comfortable space with plenty of room for all four of us. Owners are great and quick to respond to any questions. Can't wait to stay here again!

Property Is Beautiful As Advertised

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the apartment from 09/22- 09/28 and found this property to be Beautiful as advertised. The apartment was roomy for the two of us and had all of the amenities listed. The listings photos are accurate and really doesn't do the apt. justice. The property was clean and well maintained and the views were awesome. Actually got to meet the owner, finding him to be very nice and helpful. We would recommend this property to anyone ( couple or family) or to a relative. The property was away from downtown but was within only a few miles to the town and restaurants and Acadia National Park.

Avalonia exceeds expectations

  • 5 of 5
Arthur was easy to deal with and Avalonia exceeded our expectations. The convenience of launching our kayaks right from the floating dock was liberating, as was the experience of bioluminescent sea life lighting up the water off that same dock one evening. It didn't happen every night, but the night it did was amazing, especially when you splashed the water and it lit up in thousands of ghostly droplets. The four of us fit well, the place was clean, the grounds were relaxing, the view was wonderful, plenty of privacy, and Avalonia is well-situated to enjoy the best the island has to offer.
