(One of the most popular places on the Island, it has a sand beach plus lifeguards!) and we are just a few minutes from Southwest Harbor town!

You Should Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found this place on the quiet side of the island! It has everything needed to make your stay easy and comfortable. Well-stocked kitchen. Very comfortable beds. Super clean bathroom. The location is perfect - away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor, but close to great restaurants and hiking. Tim, our host, was so friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this rental and would choose to stay here again if we come back to Acadia.

Fabulous house to stay! (8/27 ~ 9/3)

  • 5 of 5

It was great pleasure my wife found this house thru internet browsing. We have spent very much impressive vacation after moving US last year.

Location was perfect. Personally, I like this place better than Bar Harbor after I have been browsing around Acadia for 1 week since all necessary place (small down town - don't forget to try local pizza and ice-cream, Echo Lake beach - warmer than Sand beach, market and many picnic places..)

I don't have to mention, the house owner, Tim, was a deserved person who knows how to make traveler be satisfied, clean and well-furnished.

One week is too short for my family but sufficient to be recharged staying this house..Thanks.

Cute little place with everything you need for a trip

  • 4 of 5

The condo was a nice little spot not far from the village of Southwest Harbor. A small town grocery store with just up the road (you can walk there) as well as beautiful Echo Lake just a little farther up. We drove into Bar Harbor several times as well as through Acadia Park. We are not big hikers so the option to drive was wonderful! The condo itself had everything you would need for your stay from a full size fridge to pots and pans, coffee maker and a blender. We did not use the grill out back as we decided to eat out most of our trip, but they option was there. There are several wonderful places to eat and enjoy in the area and we did just that- many yummy dinners! Something for everyone. Tim was so welcoming and even left a bottle of wine for us upon check in! We had our large family of 6 stay here and we all fit perfectly. 2 adults and 4 kids ages 4-17. Mom and Dad upstairs and kids down. We didn't need it but there was even a pack n play in the closet. Cable, wifi and some DVD's as well. We had a wonderful time!! There is also a laundry mat in Southwest Harbor (about a 2 min drive) that was pleasant to use, we put our wash in and walked around the village until it was done. :)

Lovely home conveniently located so you can explore the natural treasures of Mount Deserr Island.

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities and accoutrements we needed were there waiting for us to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The wine and fruit upon our arrival was an added bonus! Hosts were helpful in recommending local activities and responded quickly to all our questions prior to and during our stay. Conveniently located to grocery shop and do laundry. A lovely "back route" walk along the causeway into the town of Southwest Harbor is worth the view and time. Bus service was easy to navigate and we could wave for the bus at the end of the driveway. A great place to call home during your vacation!

Wonderful location, clean house and great host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 2 children stayed in June. The location was perfect and quiet. It was only a quick 15 minute drive to downtown Bar Harbor. The house was clean and well organized. Our teenage son loved sleeping in the loft bedroom. Tim was a great host. He personally came over and welcomed us to Maine and gave us some excellent touring advise. Our vacation was a wonderful success.
