Lovely home on quiet side

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home on quiet side that worked well for my boyfriend and I, his 11 year old son and our dog.

Theresa was a pleasure to work with and left a detailed packet of information for us. Pictures don't do her home justice.

Overall this is a great alternative to a hotel for the week as we could prepare all of our meals. Large kitchen and grill outside.

Would definitely stay again.

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5

The Gladview was the perfect home base for our stay in the region. The place was as described, clean and well-stocked for our week-long stay in the area. Less than 10 minutes to the nearest harbortown, with plenty of choices for meals as well as a grocery store for those that like to cook (we didn't1). The owner, Theresa, was very easy to work with and was available if we needed for anything (but did not need to call on her). I would highly recommend the Gladview for your stay in the region. Close to all Acadia park destinations!

Gorgeous home! Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home in a quiet, private area; easily accessible to everything my family wanted to do. The home was clean and neat, spacious and comfortable. The sunny open floor plan of the "great room" was perfect for communal gatherings, while the cozy bedrooms allowed my teenage sons (and me!) to sleep soundly. Everything one could want in a vacation home was provided: linens and towels were lovely; kitchen was well-stocked; even drinking water! The laundry and workout facilities were a bonus. Loved the wood paneling and tasteful furnishings. Theresa was wonderful to work with. She answered questions thoroughly and promptly and made us eagerly anticipate our stay. One other bonus: being near to Thurston's Lobster Pound, the best place for lobster on Mount Desert Island! Altogether a fabulous vacation in a beautiful home with a wonderful owner! We hope to return.

Outstanding Get Away Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister and I were fortunate enough to rent this gem for a week. From the moment we first opened the door to the minute we had to lock it behind us we felt lucky to be there. The interior was immaculate, well stocked and comfortable. The new decking sets everything off perfectly. We found the owner very easy to work with, thank you Theresa. We would recommend this unit to anyone looking for peace and quiet. Close to Acadia, Bar Harbor, and LL Beans newest outlet store in Ellsworth.

Gorgeous hide away

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe how wonderful this house was. Pictures do not do it justice. The house is completely wood on the inside with very beautiful hardwood floors and carpet in the bedrooms. The beds are fluffy comfortable places to sleep that remind you of your grandma's house. Lamps and books in the room made it a real treat to turn in early after a day of sight seeing. The kitchen was huge and there was cable tv and a large finished lower level with recliners. The laundry room was such a surprise. I wouldn't change a thing and look forward to returning if I am lucky enough to get to rent this gem in the woods again. Thank you Thank you Thank you for making our vacation in Maine so memorable.

Car: recommended

Unwind. Wander along the beach or explore the shops, library, and museums in and around Southwest Harbor. Hike or bike along literally hundreds of trails throughout Mount Desert Island, explore the Seawall, island hop by ferry or mail boat, or take advantage of rentals, and/or guided tours for hiking, cycling, kayaking, sailing, boating, fishing, golf, tennis, and lake/ocean swimming.

The charming fishing and yacht-building village of Southwest Harbor, population 1,900, has an abundance of restaurants, galleries, boutiques, bookstores, antique shops, health food stores, vegetable stands, live theatre, festivals, and county fairs.

Acadia National Park is located on Mount Desert Island and is minutes away with its mountains, shoreline and lakes, this is one of the most spectacular parks in the National Park System.
