Came back this year and brought friends and our kayaks. Hiked and paddled on sunny fall days. Thanks for the hospitality.

Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend booking Nick's property for a stay in the area. It was literally minutes to get to wonderful hiking places in this section of Acadia as well as getting to Bar Harbor. The place is immaculate, showing the interest in having his guests be comfortable & feel at home. Having a washing machine & dryer was also a benefit. Thanks for a great home away from home!

Ideal Location for Exploring Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Place offers a clean, comfortable, and well-equipped base from which to explore MDI. Nick provides everything needed for planning your explorations - maps, guide books, local publications, and for down-time - a fully equipped kitchen, including many staples and consumables, TV/DVD/stereo/internet, and washer/dryer. He's also available if you need anything and to provide helpful recommendations regarding local restaurants. The location offers easy access to the park via car, bike or on foot as well as distance from the congestion of Bar Harbor, and the tour bus stops. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hope to return.

Perfect location for week in Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Acadia National Park can be difficult to navigate staying on the North side near Bar Harbor. Hidden Place is on the south side of the park on an offshoot of the west side of the Park Loop Road that goes both directions inside the park. It is back off the road in a quiet location with close-up parking, and the very nice owner next door should you need assistance. It is convenient to the less crowded side of Bar Harbor as well as Southwest Harbor--both had good restaurants and activities. The kitchen is well-equipped, the bed is comfy, linens are provided, and there is also a laundry facility we did not use. We really appreciated the binder of area information on the kitchen table, and the hiking information in the living room including the recommended Map Adventures Map of Acadia and Diane Abrell's Pocket Guide to the Carriage Roads. We took these with us each day in the park. The house has two bedrooms--one with a queen bed, and another we did not use with a double and twin, and adequate dresser and closet storage. Part of the closet in the master has the continuous flow water heater so hot water is always available. The kitchen and living room are one long room with good lighting and nice TV. Photos are accurate, and the place is clean and well-loved. The limiting factor would be how comfortable your group would be sharing one bath. For the two of us, it was perfect!

Best place to stay in Acadia for 2-4 people

  • 5 of 5

Nick's place is as it is in the picture. It has lots of natural light, and its size and cleanliness immediately make you feel welcome and on vacation. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. We liked the comfortable sofa, love seat, and rocking chair. The house is quiet, and you are right in the heart of Acadia. I also liked that toilet paper, garbage bags, dishwasher detergent and things like that were provided. Also, the WIFI was really good which for us has become a necessity. Our main outdoor activity was hiking and wave watching. I highly recommend this vacation place. We loved our time there.

Wonderful Cottage and Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage for nine years increasing our stay from one to two weeks. The cottage has all the conveniences of home and it is good to have a place where we can easily cook meals. The cottage is clean and all the property is well maintained. The owner is nearby and friendly and he offers advice and help whenever it is needed. The property is walking distance to Acadia National Park and close to all the surrounding towns. I would happily recommend this property to friends and relatives.
