Awesome Place for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home for a family reunion! The place was spacious, warm, clean, well stocked and close to the National Park and local attractions. My family (five siblings and the nephews and nieces ranging from 5 to 25 years) all loved the home. We spent lots of time outside on the extraordinary wrap around porch, the fire pit, and the huge front lawn. When inside, there were plenty of spaces to gather in groups or find spots to be alone. The owners were very friendly and responded immediately to any questions we had. I have raved about this place to all my friends and would definitely look to rent again when I'm in this neighborhood.

Relaxing, secluded, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This house fit our needs perfectly! Six adults and 6 children from 3 different households fit comfortably. The kitchen was well stocked. There was plenty of seating for meals at the kitchen bar and table. We had fun using the fire pit and it was great having such a big yard for the kids to play games. We loved how secluded this house was! With such a big group it was nice to have so much room inside and outside the house. With it being a max 15 minute drive to downtown Bar Harbor we could easily enjoy restaurants and shops in town and Acadia National Park. Some of the things we enjoyed while in the area were watching the sunset from Cadillac Mt., Thunder Hole, Precipice trail and Mckays Public House restaurant. The only drawbacks were slow WiFi (it was sufficient for browsing the web for tourist information and for the kids to complete their homework assignments, but did not allow us to reliably stream video through the apple TV we brought), and no cell service inside the house (most of our phones had service once out on the porch though). The owners were very easy to work with, answering all questions and responding promptly. Overall, we would rent this place again in a heartbeat!

Family Reunion 2014

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here! The house is so nicely furnished and had plenty of room for our family vacation. We had 4 families (11 people) here for a week. With so many bedrooms it made the sleeping arrangements easy. And it was nice having 3 spacious bathrooms! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed which made cooking very manageable. The house is in a secluded location (you could hear the birds singing and the woodpeckers in the woods behind the house) but just a short drive into downtown Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park. It has a long front porch, a great big front yard, a horseshoe pit and a huge projection screen TV in the game room (with movies and games for you to use) which was perfect for our group. The owners were so great to work with and I would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting this area!

Excellent home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home which I would describe as a mansion. A total of 11 of my family members spent an entire week here. The house was very clean, spacious and inviting. Our hosts were gracious and even left a bottle of wine and smores for the children. The home had a grill and open pit fire where we could roast marshmellows and make smores.

This home is ideal for children as it had a big field to play football, basketball hoop, game console and play room with massive screen where we could play games or watch movies from the big video library selection.

The home is situated close to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and other points of interest yet is secluded to give occupants a piece of mind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Our hosts supplied us with restaurant recommendations which were spot on. The lobster at these restaurants was delicious. Everything our hosts did was with great warmth and professionalism and I would recommend their home to others. Thank you for a vacation filled with many great memories!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! We loved having you and your family at the house. You took great care of the house and we loved seeing the kids enjoy the yard on your last day there! We hope others will take advantage of the great location on our beautiful island and the wonderful things to do in Acadia National Park! This house offers many amenities for inside and outside...inside there are games, 14' movie screen for various multi media, several tv's throughout house, cozy nooks for reading, large kitchen for cooking and eating, outside there is a large open field for playing all sports; frisbee, baseball, and football, horseshoe pits, basketball, and plenty of porches for relaxing and just watching activities! We have a week in August and several in September still available! Come enjoy our beautiful island and all that Acadia National Park has to offer!
