Great place to relax

  • 4 of 5
The house was great. Clean and well maintained. It was everything described on the VRBO site. No bad surprises. Jesse was easy to work with, and provided great customer service. We did a lot of communicating leading up to the trip, and once there, everything went well, so we didn't have to bother him at all during the stay.

It was a relaxing place to return to after running around on the island all day. Nice and quiet - in the woods. It has neighbors, but lots of space (and trees) between houses. Plenty of space to spread out, and you have your choice of staying inside or hanging out on the covered porch in front, the deck out back or in the back yard by the little fire-pit. The property does have 3 cows (steer) which were fun to watch and listen to. Our daughter loved it - and would ask for the "cows" each morning.

It is within a mile of some of the trails which was fantastic! And there are lots of other trails really close by. Plenty of activities to keep you busy without having to go to the more populated areas around Bar Harbor. There is a butterfly garden very close by that was really pretty. Close to a grocery store, close to Southwest Harbor. You'll want a car or bike to get to Southwest Harbor and the aforementioned activities though. You can walk, but it'll take a while. Good restaurants close by, but a fully stocked kitchen (utensils and appliances) if you want to cook for yourself!

If you want to go to Bar Harbor or other points on the eastern side of the island - figure about a 25-30 min drive.

If you are looking for a nice, quiet place away from lots of people - I would recommend this place. It's not on the water, but it's in the woods, which is just as relaxing.

Wonderful Vacation Home on the Quietside of MDI!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six, plus two dogs, had a wonderful two week stay at this beautiful home last July and August. We have been to Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park many times and this house is the best place we have chosen to stay. Jesse, the owner, was very helpful, answering any questions we had and offering suggestions. The house was just as advertised… sparkling clean, modern, with all the amenities you could ever want. We could begin our bike ride or hike right otuside the door or take a short drive to a carriage trail or trailhead. After a busy day exploring it was a wonderful place to relax and unwind…very private and quiet. The wrap around porch is one of the best features, especially the hammock chairs for swinging and reading. The quaint town of Southwest Harbor is only a mile or two away if you are looking for some cute shops and wonderful restaurants. If you want something more lively, Bar Harbor is only a 20 minute drive. When we vacation again on MDI we definitely will try to book this house again!

Peaceful, quiet stay in Southwest Harbor

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for a week in September with our two dogs. We had a great time. The house is updated and clean. The bedrooms and bathrooms are great. It was a great place to come back to in the evenings after a day spent kayaking or hiking. Our two dogs loved it too and especially liked the three steer who live on the property! We enjoyed spending time in Acadia hiking, plus sea kayaking from Seal Cove, and the restaurants in Southwest Harbor as well as Bar Harbor where we went a few nights.

Quiet, Restful, Pleasant, Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed for 2 weeks in July. The home was updated and clean. The kitchen and bathrooms were lovely and the front porch was absolutely idyllic. We sat many mornings having coffee and freshly baked muffins from Milagros,(a local bakery just up the road), on the front porch. The home was away from the noise and crowds on the "quietside" of the island, but only about a 20 minute drive into Bar Harbor. We were very close to several entrances to Acadia National Park, and the town of Southwest Harbor was quaint and had many shopping choices. Jesse, the homeowner, was very nice. He was always available to answer our questions or provide assistance. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely home and we would love to return next summer.

Great Stay in Southwest Harbor!!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautifully maintained and had all the ammenities of home. Close and convienient to downtown Southwest Harbor and easy to get to the major roads for travels to Acadia, Bar Harbor, Northwest Harbor, Somesville, etc. yet secluded enough to enjoy the quiet sounds of nature and the beauty of the forest. The 3 resident steer on the property are not only gorgeous animals, they also added their own form of playful entertainment from the safety of their fenced in area. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful home when vacationing on beautiful Mount Desert Island.
