Beautiful House, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 had another perfect week exploring the beautiful MDI and Acadia NP. Sow's Ear is a perfect location for access to the best MDI and Acadia have to offer, but quietly tucked away in the peaceful and quaint village of Northeast Harbor. The house is beautiful, with all the comforts of home. The owner's were extremely gracious and full of helpful ideas for activities and restaurants. We loved it and cannot wait to return!

glorious week at "Sow's Ear"

glorious week at "Sow's Ear"
  • 5 of 5
My husband and our two "twenty something" sons spent a perfect week in Northeast Harbor exploring beautiful Acadia, but it was our charming home base that made the vacation extraordinary. When all is said and done, it's where you spend the mornings rubbing the sleep from your eyes while having coffee together, cooking dinner and lounging around in the late night hours laughing and talking that create the lasting memories of a vacation. This unique and artistically appointed home, designed by its architect owners, provided the perfect backdrop. Sparkling bathrooms and fabulous sun splashed kitchen,dining, and living room areas flow into one another creating a feeling of space and coziness all at once. The lovely garden, perfect for pouring over maps and guides during long breakfasts and again at dusk for wine and cheese, were some of the sweetest hours we spent in this very special house you could call your home for your next vacation. While tucked into a serene and quiet corner of the Northeast Harbor neighborhood, a three minute stroll into the quaint town center brings you to antique stores, gourmet baked goods, country style general store, an unusual bookstore filled with vintage literature and first editions, weekly Harbor farmer's market, and many other surprising stops along the way. Don't miss an opportunity to stay in this home, a secret jewel, that can make it all possible.

Peaceful, cozy, lovely

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I couldn't have been happier renting Sow's Ear. The house was recently renovated and remodeled by its architect/owner, and they have made a sunny, happy home. Lots of windows, beautiful cherry wood floors, granite countertops, and a well stocked kitchen for those who like to cook. Comfy beds. Robin and Sid were extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. They know the area well and have great suggestions for local restaurants, nice walks etc.

The house is as described: artful, charming, and cozy. The owners have a talent for balancing beauty and comfort. Northeast Harbor is a very nice place to be if you're in Acadia for mountains, the ocean, and like a small town feel.

Perfect New England Home

  • 5 of 5
Sow's Ear is a perfect New England shingle style home. From its cute house name and exterior cedar shingles with dark green trim, to its collection of wishing rocks and folk art, everything in the home is charming. authentic and well maintained. The kitchen is beautifully outfitted with high quality stemware, silverware and pots and pans - making it a joy to cook there. The house is bright, with furnishings just as you see them in the photos - comfortable and informal. The house is a 5 minute walk to town. 10 minutes to the harbor. We loved our stay and would rent again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 had a wonderful time in this PERFECT cottage. We rented bikes in Bar Harbor, and biked every day for 6 days the short 1 mile ride into Acadia Park. Each day was a different 20 mile ride, with our kids, ages 11 and 13 on their own bikes, and our 4 year old on a tag-a-long behind us. We all loved every minute of it! We ate lunch at Jordan Pond, and loved the Full Belli Deli in NE Harbor, as recommended by the owners, for coffee each am, pizzas, and sandwiches. This cottage could not have been better for our family--everyone was so comfortable in this quiet, lovely house, and it is just as described--the pictures just do not do it justice! We would highly recommend this cottage and cannot wait to go back.

Had a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed here at the end of August and had a wonderful time! The location of the cottage allowed us to leave our car behind many days. We traveled by bike and by foot. And although we didn't make use of the Explorer bus, it would have been very convenient to do so. The home is very comfortable and the kitchen had just what we needed to eat in or make picnics to eat out. Northeast Harbor is a lovely part of the island, and although there is less to do than in Bar Harbor, we all liked the peace and quiet.

One of our favorite things was eating breakfast outside, where we were visited by many different kinds of birds. I also enjoyed geting up early and walking down to the harbor. We would defintely stay again!
