    Before you consider staying anywhere else, please first read this unbiased review. This place is PHENOMENAL. My partner and I stayed at the Treetop-retreat for two nights on our recent visit to Acadia NP. This place is like, 5 minutes from the park. The location literally can't be beat. Nola and Wayne are the kind of hosts I can't even dream up. They confirmed my reservation within MINUTES and provided me all the information I asked for. They know the area very well and their recommendations are GOLD. SPACE: this is the most IDEAL place for a couple. The bed is nice and comfy. The shower/tub combo with JETS has excellent water pressure and lots of hot water! There is a wall of information booklets - we completely skipped going to the vistor center because of this! The TV swivels so we can watch it from the bed or from the loveseat/double recliner. The microwave and fridge work GREAT and are sparkling clean. The hosts even stocked the fridge with brand new bottles of high quality orange juice and creamer (not the cheap stuff!). There's an electric kettle, and TWO FULL BOXES of BIGELOW and CELESTIAL teas with tons of varieties. Coffee maker with THREE types of STARBUCKS coffee provided, with stirring sticks, varieties of sugar, etc, mugs, and even to-go cups! Two large jugs of purified water, and Oh, don't forget the two HUGE blueberry muffins that were calling my name the moment I walked in (how did they learn my name so quickly?) - next to them was a half stick of butter and homemade maple syrup. I thought I went to heaven. Inside the two bathrooms were all the toiletry items anyone might have forgotten to pack - toothbrushes, toothpastes, floss, shaving creams, razors, suntan lotion, first aid kits, etc etc. They've thought of it all! To top it all of, the whole place was SO CLEAN. When I first walked in, I couldn't be sure if there was glass on top of the window AC unit. I had to use my fingers to touch it - it's that clean. You can tell they didn't cut any corners with anything. I loved the solar lights along the walkways too - makes it so easy to see at night. And the party deck - it's HUGE! And of course they provided all the things you need for the grill and fire pit... I only wish we had more time to spend at the house! This place is amazing at ANY price, but for the price we paid, it's simply unbelievable. We will always stay at the treetop-retreat, any time we are in the area, no questions asked. THANK YOU MR. & MRS. BUCHANAN!!
