We found this cabin to be very neat & clean and centrally located for all of our
adventures in Acadia and surrounding area. Although it rained a little every
day except one in our weeks stay, it did not dampen our spirits or even slow us
down. We ate lobster for the first time ever. Quite an adventure! We hiked,
whale watched and ate like Kings & Queens. We had a great time.
