The property is exactly as described in the listing. We had 6 adults and 4 kids staying at the house and we still have a room that wasn't used.
When we first arrived we were greeted by a very nice welcome package laid out by the owners. They left out marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate and skewers for smores, blueberry soda and post cards. We started a fire in the firepit (firewood provided by the owners) that very night and the kids had a blast making smores and filling out post cards to send to their friends.
The location is close to just about everything. The next morning we drove 5 minutes to Southwest Harbor to rent bikes from the Southwest Cycle shop for a bike ride at Witch Hole Pond and then spent the rest of the day in Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor is 15-20 minutes away depending on traffic conditions but definitely not a bad drive.
Most of the rest of the week we went hiking, did more much more biking on the numerous carriage trails and went to the beach at Echo Lake which was about a 1 minute drive from the house. We arrived at the beach around 10am and there was plenty of parking and lots of space on the beach. The kids had a blast building sand castles and swimming.
During our stay the a breaker was tripped and the lights went out in one room. Unfortunately the secondary panel was where we could not access, but the good news was I called and sent a text to the owner and he was out to fix the problem quickly. The next day we locked ourselves out of the house but luckily we were on our way out for a bike ride and again I just sent Frank a text and he had the house unlocked for us by the time we were done with our bike ride. A few days later Frank sent me another text just to make sure everything was going alright and we didn't need anything else. The customer service was great and Frank is a great guy.
The property is well maintained, the lawn was nicely manicured, the rooms were clean and spacious. Hopefully we can make this a yearly trip.
My wife also noted that she was pleasantly surprised by the amount of books and board games available. We had one rainy day during our trip but the kids were happy reading books and playing board games while the adults just kicked back to relax.
I think the only drawback is that the family room couch wasn't that comfortable, but if you are in this area you shouldn't be sitting around on the couch anyway, you should be out exploring Acadia!
