We had the distinct privilege of staying at this beautiful property for a three generation family vacation. We had searched tirelessly for a rental property in the Bar Harbor/Acadia area to suit our needs, and thankfully stumbled upon the Hulls Cove property with a week open for our enjoyment. As beautiful as the pictures are, they do not come close to doing this property justice-- they can’t begin to convey not only the natural beauty inside and out of the home, but more importantly the peace and tranquility that we instantly felt upon entering. The housekeeping staff did an extraordinary job of preparing the home for our arrival. Both the home and the grounds were pristine. The housekeeping staff had even gone the extra mile to add fresh flowers to every room and bathroom in the house—small touches like that are so rarely found but so greatly appreciated! We were even lucky enough to arrive when the rhododendrons were in full bloom to further add to the charm of the home.
The home is perfectly located—just a few minutes from the main entrance to Acadia National Park, and no more than 10 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor. Despite its close proximity to downtown, the home is situated in a secluded neighborhood, off a long, beautiful driveway, with the perfect amount of privacy. Both young and old enjoyed the wildlife, especially the chipmunks! Our first morning there I was able to wake up and view the most beautiful sunrise directly from my bed upstairs—incredible! The house was expertly appointed with all the necessary amenities a vacationer could want or need. We especially enjoyed the vast library collection and nightly family games in the cozy living room. The grandparents in the family enjoyed their morning coffee on the beach deck each day.
Lastly, this review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the wonderful owner/manager, Mr. Dyer. Not only was his attention to detail evident in his quick responses to any of our emails before our arrival, but his kind nature and fine character were evident as well—a gentleman in the truest sense. If you have the opportunity to stay at this beautiful home, we highly recommend it!
