We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of three couples (in our 50’s) –and all of us loved the Sea Heather. The beds and pillows were comfortable, everything was spotless clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We found the location to be perfect, too--only few miles from the town of Bar Harbor and Acadia Nat’l Park in a setting so private and serene that you forget about the “tourist” part of Bar Harbor. Although the two other cottages are nearby, we hardly noticed they were there. We had the rocky beach to ourselves, too! The pool was spectacular and we were so happy it was still open for us. For our group, the Sea Heather was a gem.

Wonderful home away from home for an Mount Desert Island Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely love it here. The accommodations are wonderful and they have everything you need. We cooked most of our meals at the Sea Heather and had everything we needed. We used the grill quite a bit and even steamed our own clams one evening. Though each room had a tv, we never turned them on once! One of the best parts of the house is the wonderful deck on the front and the amazing heated pool in the back. We also appreciated the spacious accommodations, the fun bunk room which made for a great kid friendly space. Our kids never wanted to leave the house or the property and were constantly asking to go home and go to the pool. Pool time was our kids favorite part of the whole trip. We definitely will be returning. I also will add we stayed at one of their other properties the year before and we loved it too. This year, we enjoyed having more space for our growing family.

Felt like a King at Queen Anne's

My wife and I booked the biggest of the three cottages- Sea Heather. We did have two guests for part of the vacation.
The owners were great to work with. Excellent communication; emails and phone calls
Sea Heather cottage and the property was clean and very much up to standards.
The 3 cottages share some common areas; pool, firepit and access to the shore. We were very pleased that the other quests all got along, and respected each others time.
The pool is one of the nicest you will ever find!
Sea Heather has the added bonus of washer and dryer!
My wife has limited mobility so we chose not to use the beautiful master suite upstairs.
My brother and his wife enjoyed it very much.
The first floor double worked for us, along with the first floor full bathroom.
We bought our lobsters up the road at the Travelin Lobster. A five minute ride to pick up steamed lobsters and run back home.
Breakfast at Great Maine Breakfast in Bar Harbor.
Bar Harbor- way to touristy, but the wife was happy. Tough parking in the town If we didn't have a handicapped sticker I'd still be paying parking tickets.
Arcadia in early August looked worse than Disney World for over crowded.
Enjoyed visits to Southeast Harbor and on the way in and out Belfast area.
Going to visit Arcadia again August 2015. Surprised and disappointed in substantial price increases for properties on MDI. I did some internet searching and found a great place, sleeps 9, master on the first floor, saved $800.00 per week and complete with 5 kayaks in Trenton area and within 15 miles of Downtown Bar Harbor. We hope to explore off MDI harbor towns/restaurants next year.

Spacious multi-family rental

  • 5 of 5
In general we really liked this cottage. It was quite spacious and open. The bathrooms were nice as well as the kitchen. TV/dvd player and wifi made it great for those of us who are tech savvy :)

The loft bedroom was nice, but we had young children (2yo and 7mo) which was difficult as their bedtime was earlier and then it was loud upstairs so we all had to be very quiet. If it was enclosed then bedtimes would have been a lot easier! This loft bedroom would be fine for adults or older children and would unlikely be disruptive for them.

The location is great and very close to everything. Their own beach is nice with lovely sunsets. Got many great photos. We drove all around the island from here for the whole week and did a lot of hiking.

The pool is absolutely fantastic.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that this family enjoyed our property! This guest took GREAT photos and we're so thankful that she shared them with us! :) We understand the issue with the loft...we have plans to convert the loft to an enclosed bedroom over the winter. Currently it is referred to as the "cousins' loft," but when it's finished we will call it the "cousins' room."

Acadia Vacation Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Our family of eight, including two little ones and a set of grandparents, could not have been more comfortable in this beautiful home located right on the water. It quickly became our home away from home! We made full use of the gorgeous pool (the pictures do not do it justice!), the bonfire pit and walking on the beach at sunset. We also enjoyed several meals on the outdoor deck overlooking the water. For us, the location was perfect. Located right off of the main road as you enter MDI, the Sea Heather was about 10 minutes to Bar Harbor and even less to the entrance of Acadia. And lucky for our family, it was practically across the road from Pirate's Cove Miniature Golf and ice cream (a family tradition!). It is also minutes away from Sweet Pea's Café - not to miss for their brick oven pizza! The owners were very easy to work with from start to finish and were happy to answer questions about the area, etc. It was so hard to leave! Next time we are in the area, we will definitely be back!

Bar Harbor Disappointment

  • 2 of 5
This home while seemingly ideally located, is not. It's isolated and too far from Bar Harbor. The amenities in the home are sub par. Tiny televisions, limited channel selections, plastic dishes, glasses & cups, an underpowered ancient microwave oven. Shore front is not very attractive. Too many large trees obscure view. With all of the beds, it's really set up to be a party house or for a lot of people.

Owner's Response: We are sorry for this guest's disappointment. Though we do not have a lot of vrbo reviews yet, we have loads of happy guests who've written about their fabulous time at Sea Heather, and many many returning guests from year to year. We believe his disappointment around what was supposed to be a larger family gathering which turned out to be just the gentleman and is wife is mis-projected at our property. The images and descriptions on our website and the vrbo listing accurately depict Sea Heather, and yes, it is set up to accommodate a lot of people (which is why he chose it in the first place!) Even though it was just the two of them, it's unfortunate that these guests couldn't have enjoyed the space as many other couples have. Televisions are not the focus here (though they are not "tiny") and while we do have high quality, un-breakable dishes (due to the large number of families that we accommodate) our cookware and knives are way above the quality you typically find in a rental. Though I have never had a complaint about the microwave, I'll definitely look into it! This guest and his wife were clearly unhappy with their vacation timing and it's unfortunate that they felt the need to write an unfair review. They did not take the time to read any of the information that was sent to them (or included in the information book located in the cottage) about the property, and needed a lot of hand holding throughout their stay. They probably would have been better served at a resort or an in-town hotel vs a vrbo weekly rental home.
