Our experience was good. The house had age specific things for entertainment. Our kids also enjoyed the stay. Spacious house. Scenic surroundings. The kitchen was so comfortable. It had every thing we needed.

The only problem that we faced was the latch of the bathroom door upstairs. It wasnt working.

Relaxing Stay outside Acadia

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (including 5 children) stayed at the Captain Nathan Clark house and we could not have had a better experience. The location worked really well for us; it is close to both Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, but away from the crowds. It is within walking distance of the main street in Southwest Harbor and across the street from Beal's Seafood, which we highly recommend. The house is comfortable and charming, with a homey and welcoming feel. We were all able to eat together in the dining room, but also had space if we needed to retreat for some peace and quiet. We found the home clean and well-stocked when we arrived and would happily stay there again.

Wonderful family and multi-generational home.

  • 5 of 5

Our group included 12 people from the age of 14 months to 75 years. There was plenty of room where we were not on top of each other unless we wanted to be. The description of the property was accurate. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner and her mother could not have been more accomodating. We had beautiful views and could walk to restaurants and town. We spent part of a day on a lobster boat that was docked across the street from the house. The children especially loved stuffing mesh bags with dead fish to rebait the traps (go figure!). The captain said that was the first time anyone had offered. We docked at Little Cranberry Island for a picnic and bought lobster from the lobster co-op to take home. Delicious. One suggestion would be to explain and label garbage, returnable and recycling containers. We would definitely recommend this house to everyone. Go and enjoy!
