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.

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

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!

This place was just wonderful! We had two people, two dogs, and plenty of room! Everything was neat and clean. Owners (very friendly) were close by and so willing to supply recommendations and advice on what to see and do. Location was great as well: Only a few minutes drive from Acadia park entrance, carriage trails, and downtown Bar Harbor, but property itself was quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay again and would recommend for anyone with a small party.

Wonderful property, neat and clean

My wife and I have stayed at the "Eden" house twice now. The owner is very accommodating. The house is well kept with all of the amenities. Last year, we had the honor of being the first to stay in the home. This year, Kathy Norwood mentioned that we are the first repeat customers.

We arrived just a couple of days before the government shut down. However, we were still able to find many great things to do on MDI. Here is a sample of what we could find.

* Acadia Air Tours -- We took a 45 minute flight in the bi-plane --
really awesome
* Beach combing by the chart house
* Harbor tour -- from Northeast Harbor -- really nice
* Driving tour of the island on our own -- there were however some
closed roads due to the the park closure.
* Side Street Cafe -- it was recommended by Tiffany at the Alpaca
store. The food is awesome. We ate there every day!
* Art walk on Friday night -- very nice
* Shopping in Bar Harbor center

All in all, with the location, a nice house located near many attractions, led to a great vacation. I would highly recommend vacationing here.

We use Homeaway a lot for family vacation rentals and this Mount Desert Island (MDI) property is exactly why. The two-bedroom house has twin beds for the kids and a (California) King bed for the parents. The kitchen was well-stocked, making it trivial to make breakfasts, dinners and packed lunches for hiking and biking. The owners even provide wild Maine blueberries (frozen) and pancake mix for breakfast. The only (minor) negative was the lack of a propane grill to BBQ outside. Otherwise, the house has everything a family needs, including internet access (wifi), games, kids toys, and fort in the backyard with a little grassy area to throw a ball around.

The house is centrally located on the Northern part of MDI, making it easy to get to any place (by car) in the National Park (Acadia) as well as Bar Harbor -- take Crooked Rd to avoid Rte 3 traffic, but watch out for deer!

Kathy and Bruce were very helpful for things to do, hikes to go on, etc. And if you're lucky, Bruce will give you a history lesson on how the house was built and the surrounding land that has been part of the family for many years.

In sum, a meticulously clean house that is ideal for families that want to enjoy MDI and Bar Harbor, but don't want to pay Bar Harbor motel/hotel prices.

Clean, quiet, equipped.

Great place for a family, especially with children, as it's all on one level. Quiet, very clean. Kitchen much more equipped than my own. Wifi throughout, dvd players, 2 tvs. Laundry downstairs. Deck with umbrella outside. We were welcomed with all the fixins for a blueberry pancake breakfast when we arrived. Everything was well maintained and the owners were great to deal with. And I did get cell phone reception :-) and that can be hard to find on the island.
