About Kathy Norwood

My husband and I built Eden House in 1975 on family property. Our families are both local and we are descendants of the first residents of Mount Desert Island. We are very proud of our island. It has been a wonderful place to raise a family and our children live close by!

Kathy Norwood purchased this house in 1975

Eden House has many stay at home offerings but should you prefer to travel the area, we supply maps and brochures for those looking for adventures.

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5
This place is just lovely. It's in a convenient location on the island, within 20 minutes of Acadia, Bar Harbor, etc. The house is very clean and has everything you might need. The bathroom is a good size, as are the bedrooms. We had three adults, two kids and a dog, and didn't feel cramped in the slightest. (And parents, FYI, the closet in the master bedroom is the perfect size for a pack 'n play :) ) It was such a nice touch that Kathy left a pancake breakfast (and coffee!) for our time there. It's also nice and quiet. Overall, we absolutely loved it and will definitely be back!!

Wonderful stay!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family had an incredible visit to Eden House! Upon arrival and throughout our stay we noted the cleanliness of the home along with unique nuances that made Eden House so memorable. Each morning we enjoyed a fresh cup of coffee in wonderful handmade mugs and took great interest in the folk-art around the home.

There was ample room for our family, which included 4 adults and 1 young child. We were all able to have our own space and we even encountered a rainy day that we spent watching a couple of dvds and playing board games that were already at the home.

The house is only a few minutes from downtown Bar Harbor but we felt like we had the island to ourselves as Eden House is located in a section of town away from the flocks of tourists.

Kathy proved a wonderful host and even provided us with some basic groceries including eggs and bacon!! Check-in was very smooth and we were able to drop off our belongings and head out for our adventures. We had a variety of hiking options within a few miles and my husband greatly enjoyed riding his bike around the area.

We can't say enough about Eden House and would recommend it to anyone interested in staying on MDI!

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage surrounded by woods yet convenient to Acadia national park and Bar Harbor. The cottage has every convenience for maximum comfort. Beautifully decorated and perfect for families as well as couples seeking a quiet retreat. Kathy and Bruce are gracious hosts and the blueberry pancakes are yummy.

Great place to get away!

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for four nights and enjoyed each one! At first we were a bit confused when Kathy, the owner, told us that she'd leave the house unlocked and opted for a - in my experience - non-traditional "check-in." Once my wife and I explored the empty home, we found everything to our liking!

The amentities were exactly as described, and Kathy left us a helpful note of local places to find food as well as directing us to the Island Explorer: a great way to explore the island! All of the sheets and bedding were fresh and cleaned, and the towels were ready to go.

Despite not actually meeting Kathy face to face, she was very pleasant towork with! When we got there, Kathy even left us all the fixings we needed to make a blueberry pancake breakfast! I thought that was very kind and thoughtful.

The kitchen was well-equipped and everything was very accessible and there were even some spices we were able to use.

The location was perfect, in my opinion. If you're looking to spend a lot of time in Acadia, the drive is only 10 minutes to the entrance, and could even be biked for an extra adventure. If that's not your style, you could always pick up the Island Explorer bus at the local store, and use it for all your traveling needs.

I'd suggest arriving earlier in the day than we did (we showed up late afternoon when things were getting darker) so you can have a better sense of the layout of things on the island, etc.

All in all, my wife and I enjoyed our stay very much! Thank you Kathy!

Acadia 2br with full amenities and great layout

  • 5 of 5
Nice house in a convenient location to explore all of MDI. Owners were excellent communicators, helpful and friendly. The house was stocked with nice dishes, towels, washer/dryer, dishwasher,...everything we needed. Super clean, wood floors, new bathroom, good wifi, etc. Wooded lot so beware of Mosquitos. Great layout and perfect size for our family - 2 adults, 2 kids ages 7 and 9. The market down he road has tasty coffee and breakfast. Owners do a nice touch with wild blueberries.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5
I almost don't want anyone else to know how amazing this house is because we want it all to ourselves! We arrived with our three children not knowing what to expect. We were all so excited and amazed when we walked through the door! It was very neat and clean. The bathroom is really big and there were plenty of clean towels provided. The washer and dryer worked perfect and came in handy after the days we had on the lobster boat or at Echo Lake State Park (which is right down the street). The house is perfect. The televisions all worked. The breakfast was a really nice touch, not many people are so generous and kind to their renters. At one point I thought I had to cancel a night at the last minute and Kathy was so human with her response of, "it's perfectly fine, things happen!". Usually there would be fees and penalties in a case like that. We ended up not having to cancel and the night was still available for us. Kathy was always available if I needed her, she lives close by and she is reliable. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a home in the Bar harbor area. I love that the price was very reasonable and that the owners are not out to screw the renter like most places. I hope they never raise the price, it was so affordable compared to the hotels on the island. I like to rent from good and honest people: they are hard to find these days. I loved every thing about this house and our rental experience. We can't wait to come back again!
