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!

Nice location for Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Hidden Place this fall. The owner, Nick, is next door on property and very accommodating. House is clean and comfortable. The location is an easy distance from all Acadia and Bar Harbor sites.

The cottage was just as described...it was the perfect location for our week long visit to Acadia. The location was great to visit Acadia and the other local attractions. Nick provided lots of brochures and suggestions that were very helpful. We would highly recommend it.

Great landlord, great location, great place !!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been returning to the Hidden Place for several seasons now and we continue to love it... Nick is and wonderful landlord and friend. The location is PERFECT for us... 5 minutes from the beach, 5 minutes from the ocean for kayaking, 5 minutes from the carriage trails for a carriage ride and/or safe biking with no cars, 5 minutes from the mountains for hiking and climbing and on rainy days it's quiet so you can practice guitar and write music... Bar Harbor is only a few miles away if you want to be in the thick of it... Nick is very attentive and responsive to tenants requests ... he even went to Ellsworth and picked up a grapefruit spoon and knife for me :-)

All in all a terrific place to stay and I would and have recommended it to friends and family...

Great Cottage for exploring Mt Desert Isle

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Hidden Place. We were looking for something close to Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. Hidden Place met that criteria and more! The place was very clean and well furnished. Everything we needed and more! The owner was very professional from beginning to end. He was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and in making sure our rental needs were met. Looking forward to our next stay at Hidden Place.
