FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful visit to Mt. Desert Island.Tracy was very helpful and her house was great, met all our needs. Every evening we had 2 visitors that just loved to eat carrots. So many things to see and do, we walked across Bar Island during low tide, saw a deer on the island, hiked, visited all the harbors on the island, visited thunderhole 4 times, was pretty quiet most of the time, sand beach, otter cliffs, cadillac mountain, shopping, walked the Shore Path in Bar Harbor, and ate lots of LOBSTER.

BEST FAMILY VACATION....

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this property August 2011 and we had the best time!!! The property was so warm and inviting....it felt like it was our own home and had everything you could possibly need. We ate lobsters, BBQ'd, played games in the very large yard and just relaxed on the roomy patio each evening. The location was great as each morning we would walk to Otter Point and up to Thunder Hole, then jump on the Island Explorer which conveniently stops in front of the home. The trail to Cadillac Mountain was just down the street (beautiful hike) and there is a quaint little market just around the corner. I so recommend this property and I can't wait to come back!!!!!

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
5 girlfriends for the the last week in September. We had a wonderful, wonderful time, everything was perfect, the weather, the house, the location. We enjoyed the fresh rosemary from the garden to add to our dinners prepared in the spacious kitchen. We enjoyed morning coffee outside with the bunnies!!
Looking forward to renting next year and for many years to come!

BEST VALUE IN ACADIA

  • 5 of 5
One of the best places to stay in the United States. I have stayed in this house and village many times over the past 22 years in all seasons. The house has lots of space indoors and out, and has been renovated and modernized, but retains a cottage feel. Otter Creek is the most convenient and quiet of all the Acadia villages with walks and bike riding into the National Park in all directions. The Burning Tree restaurant is a walk down the street - highly recommended. Cadillac summit is a 50 minute run from this house (3.5 miles) and if you head to the ocean, your moring coffee will still be warm after you've walked one mile through the Blackwoods to the ocean cliffs. Otter Cliffs, Sand Beach and Otter Creek Causeway are classic spots in the Park all within a 1-2 hour walk. Seal Harbor Beach, Jordan Pond House, Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor are all on the free bus line, and minutes away by car or bike. Might live there myself one day!

Map

Acadia National Park; miles of carraige trails and ferries to outer islands. Enjoy berry picking in season: July brings Raspberries, there is a farm patch up the street where you can pick'n pay by the pint. In the end of July and begining of August Blueberry bushes line the roadways and hiking trails for snacks or pies. August brings Blackberries along the park loop road and September ripens the apples found on trees through out the park.
