The property was in a very pretty spot just next to Acadia National Park.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a very pretty spot just next to Acadia National Park. We could literally walk out our front door and in less than a minute be in the Park to walk, hike and bike. The log cabin was very nice. It reminded us of our home (we have a log home) so we felt comfortable. Would recommend it to any couple looking for a quiet and meaningful experience in a beautiful setting.

Fabulous!

The cabin is terrific! Clean and comfortable with all the modern conveniences, and also the rustic charm I wanted. Hiking trails right outside the door and convenient access to other parts of the park. It was peaceful and beautiful. Thank you Rob and Marj!

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience in the Acadia Explorer Cabin. We were welcomed by Rob and Marj as soon as we arrived and they kindly introduced us to the cabin. The cabin was perfect! Great location, very clean, and essentials were taken care of. The trails located steps from the cabin were a wonderful bonus we were not aware of. I would highly recommend this cabin and the caretakers, we had an amazing week! Thank you

Outstanding. Unbeatable!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just left Southwest Harbor after 7 wonderful days at Acadia Explorer Cabin. Marj and Rob were gracious hosts and provided great hospitality. Our cabin was a beautiful, clean and comfortable retreat for us. The kitchen was well equipped and the water quality/pressure is great...plus the washer/dryer in the cabin really came in handy. The location was PERFECT...nice and quiet yet easily accessible to everything we wanted to do on Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor. We are already planning our trip back for next summer. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Thank you Marj and Rob! :)
