Guestbook comments from the manager
It has been an extraordinary privilege to have the use of your lovely homes! My heart belongs to High Tide but I would change nothing in either of them. We have enjoyed our time beyond expectations. Thank you so much for sharing!

My wife and I have been summering on Mount Desert Island all our lives. Along with way, we built both Ebb Tide and High Tide to house our children and grandchildren. We love this part of Maine for the terrific boating, sailing, hiking, picnicking, island exploring, kayaking, tennis, golf and cold water swimming, among other things, that have brought so much joy to us and our family. We are happy to share our little paradise with those who might appreciate the natural world, outdoor activities and raw, wild beauty as much as we do.

My family has been summering in Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island since the end of the 19th century. Ebb Tide and High Tide are located on a portion of the same waterfront property my great grandparents purchased in 1895.

We travel often, but always look forward to returning to our home in Northeast Harbor, which is where our kids grew up in the summer and where our grandchildren are now discovering all the wonder and magic I knew as a kid. The village and surroundings are relatively untouched since i was a child, and the national park, right next door, has remained completely wild since the last Ice Age 12,000 years ago.

My family, consisting of three generations, had the extraordinary good fortune of spending ten days occupying High Tide and Ebb Tide. The two houses are situated on a large parcel of wooded land which also has a grassy lawn and flower garden which complement the view of mountains and Somes Sound. Working lobster boats and other watercraft plying the waters were a source of constant interest.. The homes evidence the eye of an artist in the décor and ambience and we could have spent the entire ten days enjoying the properties had it not been for the wealth of nearby activities awaiting our attention. We hiked, kayaked, experienced the local gardens, toured Acadia and enjoyed the communities of Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor in addition to a boat trip to observe puffins and other sea critters. There are resident loons and we all came away with that music in our memories.

It was a bonus that a wide array of newspapers, good coffee and gelato, sea-fresh lobster and freshly baked and high quality bread and pies were to be found just a short drive away, in Northeast Harbor..

The owners are a talented and engaging couple who are models of hospitality. I hope the reader of this review will have an opportunity to enjoy this part of the universe in these accommodations. The photos and descriptions cannot begin to capture the magic of this place.

The property is just beautiful -- the pictures do not do it justice. The owners were just a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend High Tide to anyone. The view from the deck is just spectacular. Every detail was considered inside the cabin as well - all linens, extra towels, well stocked kitchen (paper towels, wraps, detergent, etc) bathrooms had soap, shampoo etc. This rental cottage is like staying at a high end hotel as far as its amenities, but it has the privacy of a beautiful lot and charm that is found in very few hotels - - only in small boutiques. Should be return to Acadia, High Tide will be our only choice of where to stay.
