Lovely Family Vacation...with dogs
I stayed here with my mom, my 8 year old twins, and our two dogs. The lay out was perfect for us and the queen bedroom / cabin worked out great for my mom. It reminded her of her childhood trips to Lake George. We were close enough to Bar Harbor and also Acadia. We visited both each day and explored many of the hiking trails in Acadia. The beach was very close and the kids enjoyed finding The Oven caves at low tide and looking for creatures along the coast line. There were also so many places to bring our dogs, from our early morning walks to Mainely Meat for a cup of coffee to exploring Acadia and Bar Harbor. We even got to take the paddle board to Echo Lake on our way to the light house. I will definitely look to book our next stay here.
Thank you so much. And always makes us feel very good to hear that people had such a great time . Please do come back
Cute cottage on a quiet street, close to amenities!
We loved staying here! The house was comfortable and clean, and we were close to Bar Harbor and the park. We brought our two chihuahuas and the small fenced in back yard was perfect for them when it was time to go outside. We plan to come back and when we do, we will be looking to stay here again.

Perfect Winter Getaway
Our second stay at Far Niente was just as lovely as the first. The cottage is warm, inviting, and has all the amenities the two of us need for a long winter weekend away from work. It offers easy access to all the hiking trails of Acadia and is also a great place to hole up for the day when the weather is a bit wicked for outside adventures. John is the perfect host: immediately attentive to calls and emails but also extremely respectful of our privacy. We will be back!
Thanks so much for the great review . Hope your back soon .
Everything we where hoping for . Clean , quiet , beautifully appointed and close to all
