Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 BA, sleeps 6.

Jibe Ho is a completely renovated cottage with modern amenities sitting so close to the ocean that at high tide the water is underneath the deck. With picturesque views of Somes Sound and views south to Norumbega Mountain you will be completely comfortable in this modern cottage with its soothing color palate. You’re just a walk away from Acadia Mountain’s hiking trails, scenic and historic quarries, and Echo Lake’s sandy beach. You’ll be just a short drive from the quaint villages of Somesville, Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor; as well as Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and all the activities and attractions for which Mount Desert Island is renowned.

Located on beautiful Mount Desert Island, in the village of Hall Quarry, this property offers the most stunning views of Somes Sound and the surrounding area mountains. Sitting right in middle of the island offers the relaxing serenity that Maine is so famous for and the convenience of being only a short ride to the amenities of Mount Desert Island's Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and countless hiking and biking trails. Unforgettable restaurants, the magnificent carriage roads, nearby museums, galleries and libraries add to the charm of the area.

The cottage was wonderful. The kitchen is very well stocked, the bathrooms are wonderful and the access to satellite, DVD + wife are added bonuses. The deck + BBQ are great as are the fire pit, free wood, access to the pool + canoes + kayaks. Overall it is all well put together + a great place to stay.

Newbies from Texas, Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first Maine/New England vacation.

Everything about the Jibe-Ho rental was first-class, from the pre-booking (communication was very good and prompt) to the directions on finding the place. And, the place (Jibe-Ho) itself. It was important to us to be on waterfront. We visited when it was not quite "high" season, and I'm sure local traffic would be bad in the middle of summer, but not while we were there in late May.

Jibe-Ho is just as described on the website, it was VERY clean, well furnished and extremely comfortable for our party of 4. We enjoyed alot of just relaxing at the house, especially in the evenings with the sat-TV and nice big screen. Wifi worked very well throughout our visit.

Owners/management were responsive and very easy to deal with.

suffice to say, we would definitely book Jibe-Ho again if we are in the area, and already missing our Maine vacation.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this house and really enjoyed it. The property is well-kept, up to date, right on the water, and easy to get to. During high tide, the water comes up under the front deck and it so pretty! The kitchen is very nice and is stocked for cooking. My husband and I made many meals here, including fresh lobster. The upstairs bedroom has a large window that over looks the Sound - such a beautiful sight to wake up to! MCM Rental Company was very nice to work with. Highly recommended!

Best House We Have Rented On MDI

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to write my review because we want to keep this treasure to ourselves! But, the owners are so nice and the house is so wonderful, that I'll acquiesce.

The views are amazing, from early morning sunrise to late at night under the stars. It is a pleasure to cook meals in this house, because they have all the utensils you could ask for and then some (even a tubular garlic peeler!). The house is clean and bright with large bathrooms and a wonderful deck.

We brought our two children and one friend with us for this trip. We had the upstairs bedroom with the most comfortable mattress on which I've ever slept. Our daughter loved the downstairs king and our son and his friend slept quite comfortably on the twin beds.

We have found our favorite place to stay so far, and are planning on returning next year to enjoy it all over again!

Thank you Deb & Elizabeth for making our Maine vacation one of our best!

This house is fabulous! The owner met us at the house upon our arrival to see if we needed anything! It was a little hard to find but not a big deal and worth the little road you have to do go down to get there. Everything you need is right there! WiFi worked great and fast! The house was well kept, decorated with taste and met our every need. We ate at many restaurants in Bar Harbor, went out on a lighthouse tour, went up to Cadillac Mt and generally enjoyed the stunning beauty of the Acadia National Park. We stayed a week and wished we could go back right NOW! We will definetly go back and hope we can get this house to stay in. You will not be disappointed in anyway if you choose this house or Maine for your vacation!

One of a Kind Vacation Rental near Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a wonderful 1 week stay at this residence. Mount Desert Island is an amazing vacation destination. This rental is centrally located to access the entire island with a 15 minute drive to any local destination (Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, etc.). The views from this house on the wide water of Somes Sound combined with the mountainous backdrop are in my opinion the best on the island. At high tide, the calm ocean waters are directly beneath the home's deck, which is a one-of-a-kind feature that you will not find on any other vacation rentals. At low tide, there was probably 50 feet of usable rocky beach in front of the house. We stayed there with our children ages 4 to 9 and they loved playing in the ocean waters and the rocky beach area every day. We made use of the on-site Kayaks to explore the beautiful waterways of Somes Sound as well. In the evenings we built camp fires in front of the home on the banks of the Sound. The home itself is fresh and clean and beautifully remodeled, with Flat screen TVs in every room. The owners have provided a very high-end vacation rental. We also found the kitchen to be well-stocked with nice cookware and all of the basic paper products (trash bags, aluminum foil, toilet paper, etc.) All we had to do was hit the local grocery store to stock up for a week's worth of food. We will definitely stay at this same location on our next visit to Bar Harbor.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is exactly as it is described. A perfect setup, with all the modern amenities you will ever need. The sound of ocean at high tide is unbelievable as it comes under the house at high tide. Great location and well worth the price. The other cottages looked just as nice as Jibe-Ho, but this had the best views. We look forward to returning next year.
