Better than Expeceted
You always wonder if the pictures will match up with the actual property, right? The price just seems too good to be true. I can tell you that this property was a delight. The pictures really do not show you the beauty of the property. Everything was clean, well maintained and fully equiped. There are floor to ceiling windows that let the light flow in, even on a foggy day. There are two bedrooms, each about the same size, with the bathroom more or less in between them. There is a great deck that sits in the middle of the house that you can see from either the living room or the the back bedroom. We bought plenty of "camp wood" to use in the outdoor fireplace, which was so relaxing after a long day. I hate to admit this but I am pretty picky. I have been known to call and request that a property be recleaned or at least cleaned before I unpack. On a trip my husband does not upack until I've checked the room and bathroom. I just really feel you should get what you think you are paying for. I had no such issues with this house, even the furniture is comfy and clean. It feels like you are visiting friends and they just left you the keys to their house. It takes you just a couple of minutes to walk to the ocean if your so inclined but I bet you'll just sit on the deck and watch the boats go by. We had a couple of foggy days and could hear the fog horns but not see the boats so when it cleared it was amazing to see the Ferry turning past the point. The location of the house REALLY is on the quite side of the island which we really enjoyed but the drive to Bar Harbor is 15 to 20 minutes and only because of the speed limit and narrow roads. There are plenty of places to eat or shop if your so inclinded, within a 5 minute drive of the house, including Bass Harbor which has a grocery store and a very nice specialty market.
The owner Marty even contacted us to make sure everything was as expected and that we didn't need anything, which I thought was considerate. I could tell you a lot more but your just going to have to experience it yourself. I only have one negative thing to say and that is, we just did not have enough time to enjoy the house to its fulliest because we were always out exploring Acadia National Park. I would love to come back and just stay at the house. Hopefully we will be able to do that in the near future.
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: With the beauty of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park I have a challenge to match such beauty with my own properties.
When I receive positive reviews about my properties I have feel I have complimented my magnificent surroundings. It is part of the service I wish to provide. I hope by making the houses comfortable inside and out, families visiting Mount Desert Island will return again.
Again thanks Georgia Meachum for such a positive review.
