Great get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect size for 2 people. Very private and away from the business of the busy end of the Island but still a very easy drive to anywhere you need to go to. The trails immediately off the property are awesome, some better than the other side of Acadia. I would highly recommend this property for a couple, or small family. Rob and Marj were fantastic hosts and very helpful with our needs! I look forward to taking another trip and will definitely get in contact with them when that time comes.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our family in July, and we loved it. ANP is literally right out the front door, and our 10 year old daughters rode their bikes down the trail leading to Long Pond, by themselves, almost every day. Marjorie & Richard, the cabin's owners, were very hospitable. They even let us borrow an air mattress when ours sprung a leak. It's a short drive to Echo Lake and Acadia Mountain, and it's only about 30 minutes to Bar Harbor. We thought it was well worth it to be on the "quiet side" of the Island. We would definitely go back!
