The Gray Barn was a perfect place for us to stay - clean, nicely furnished, with a pleasant view and plenty of space for all 5 of us. It was a great home base allowing quick and easy access to all of Mount Desert Island's hiking, swimming, Lobster Pounds, quaint towns, boating trips, kayaking, etc. After enjoying nature all day it was a pleasure to return to the Gray Barn for evening games around the dining room table. Having on site owners knowledgeable of their area added to our fun, all the recommendations were accurate!

Comfy get-away on the quiet side of the island

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time while staying at the Gray Barn. Took about a half hour to get to many attractions on the Bar Harbor side of Acadia, but it was nice to come "home" to relax away from the crowds. And there's plenty to do in and near Bass Harbor, too--Acadia mountain, Echo Lake, Thurston's Lobster Pound, boat tours, ferry, quick access to a lobster pier to buy your own (cheap) lobster to cook. The Gray Barn is on a small, residential road, set back a bit from the main road, with a direct view of the harbor and short walk down to the water. It was very clean and well-kept, with all the amenities of home, including a nicely stocked pantry of basic cooking supplies and paper products. The sunroom/dining room was bright and breezy with view of the harbor. Beds were comfy, there was plenty of room on the living room and sunroom couches to stretch out, and having a washer and dryer on site was handy. The kayaks were a bonus--we enjoyed exploring the harbor or nearby marsh. And the raspberries growing on the property were a treat. The owner was really friendly and helpful in orienting us to the island when we arrived, and provided maps and brochures to use while we were there. He recommended a tasty, authentic Mexican restaurant (XYZ) in town and told us about a great swimming spot on Echo Lake ("the ledges") that our kids really enjoyed. If we make it back to Acadia Nat'l Park, we'd stay there again for sure. Would highly recommend the property.

It would be difficult to find a better spot for spending a vacation than the Quietside of Mt. Desert, and the Gray Barn experience is part of the fun. The accomodations are modern and in great shape, and the windows both have a great view over upper Bass Harbor and give great air circulation. Access to cellphone and internet coverage is a convenience. The kitchen is very functional, though you'll want to visit the lobster pounds and restaurants in the area. A perfect base for hiking in Acadia National Park. The week we were there was perfect for using the owner's kayaks in the upper harbor and the estuary beyond. We've stayed three different years and will be happy to return.

Awesome week, really nice rental

This rental is everything it says, and more. The house is comfortable, nicely furnished with a relaxed decor, VERY well equipped, and well situated away from the heaily trafficked areas of Acadia. The owner was incredibly helpful, and his advice helped us to make every day special. Maps, books, restaurant tips, and anything else you could need are there. We especially loved paddling around the harbor and up into the marsh....and Johnathan's advice on timing with the tides was infallable, as were his suggestions for where to hike (and even where berries can be found as you hike) :-). If you want to cook, there were condiments and spices beyond what we typically find in a rental, and a nice cultue for leaving the house well supplied for the next person. We would definitely stay there again, and highly recommend it. Thanks again to our hosts.

Well Appointed, Very Comfortable, Great Location

The Gray Barn provides everything from an ice cream scoop and spices to a gas grill and kayaks. We definitely did not want for any amenities. The third floor bed was extremely comfortable with its soft and supportive mattress and fine linens. After a good night's sleep, the Gray Barn is close to MDI destinations such as Long Pond, Acadia Mt, St Sauveur, Seawall, Echo Lake and Southwest Harbor. Finally, Jonathan Bender (owner) is a wonderful host. His recommendations for dining are especially noteworthy. Specifically, we loved XYZ Restaurant (SW Harbor - fine dining Mexican - do yourself a favor and go), Finelli's Pizza (Ellsworth) and the Maine Grind (Ellsworth - comfortable, rainy day coffee house).
Finally, we have been vacationing in Acadia since 2001. This, however, was our first year at the Gray Barn and it proved, again, that the Acadia/MDI area has an endless supply of "Great".
