Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from spending a week at this lovely home. It was our first time to Acadia and we absolutely loved it! We have 3 children, ages 12, 10 and 6. It was a perfect vacation spot as we could hike and bike as little or as much as we wanted. There were plenty of "easy" spots we could tackle as we had our 6 year old to consider.

The home is equipped with anything we needed and so clean! We loved relaxing at the home when we weren't out hiking, biking or shopping. We actually enjoyed a day of rain we had so we could do a 1000 piece puzzle provided at the house. The house lends itself to relaxing. One of my favorite moments was sitting down by the water reading a book while the children collected sea shells and played soccer in the yard.

The owner is very responsive and easy to work with. He even provided a list of recommended places to eat, shop and hike. Everything we tried from the list was top notch and the recommendations were appreciated!

The only bad thing about our stay was the mosquitoes. They were very bad after dusk. I called it the Mosquito Apocalypse!! Make sure to take long pants/shirts and spray.

I would recommend visiting this area and staying in this home in particular. We had such a wonderful family vacation and made memories we will treasure forever!!

Awesome Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a wonderful week in this house. The owner was prompt in answering any questions we had all throughout the rental process. The house is charming. It takes you back in time to simpler times and screams family vacation. It felt like we had just arrived at our own family vacation home. There are no modern or up to date fixtures but everything we saw was functional and adequate for what we needed. The house was clean and stocked for a family of four. We were able to make our own dinners (lobster-which we purchased down the road, fresh) and even bake a cake for my son's birthday. The beds were comfortable and even though there was no air conditioning we slept well! The stars at night were a real plus for us city folks. It is the quiet side of the island so if you're looking for action it's about a 30 minute drive to Bar Harbor. We hiked in Acadia, went sea kayaking, whale watching, had a great homemade blueberry pie bought from the pie lady, ate at fabulous restaurants-we LOVED Jordan House, rode our bikes on the carriage roads and walked around Bar Harbor. It was an excellent vacation and it was great to come home to this house every night to relax! We watched a movie from the owner's collection, listened to records, and even finished a puzzle of Acadia-a favorite activity for my 11 and 15 year old. I haven't even commented on the view from the house but I think the pictures here are enough. If we come back to hike the Beehive Trail someday, we will definitely book this house! :)
