Perfect spot for a large gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this location just for the day for a staff Christmas party and it was fantastic! It was spacious and clean, and had all the kitchenware we needed to prep and heat food for the party. The seating was comfortable and the fireplace really created a warm ambiance in the room. We brought in a 4-piece band, and the space was big enough to the band plus room for dancing with the seating pushed to the edges of the room. I hope the owner continues to rent out the house through the winter for day rentals, b/c this will be our go-to place for future off-season staff gatherings!

p.s. we are a non-profit working in Central America, so we appreciated the Latin music in the CD player and the Coronas in the fridge! :)

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 (husband, kids, parents, brother + significant other) stayed at the chalet as a celebratory getaway after my brother graduated from pharmacy school. The chalet was in an excellent location, offering privacy yet close proximity to Hancock and Acadia National Park. We took advantage of the kayaks to explore the island across the way. The house was very clean, fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and large enough to allow some alone time when you want it. The owner, Shawn, responded promptly to all of our questions.

Beautiful property and location

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time that we've stayed at the chalet and we have never been disappointed. The property is spacious, clean and well maintained. The view is breathtaking. There are a lot of things to do for the kids as well as the adults whether it rains or shines. The property owners, Shawn and Christine, are very easy to talk to and are always available when you need them. Thank you for sharing your property with us. We love the place and location and had a fabulous time as always!

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of two families: 4 adults and 5 children. We arrived to find the chalet very clean and with plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is large and well-equipped. One of the teens enjoyed using the waffle iron to make breakfast for everyone. The weather was great during our week's stay except for one rainy day, so we took advantage of the dvd collection to watch a couple of movies. The kids had fun in the game room downstairs, and both kids and adults used the kayaks to explore. The chalet is just a short drive to Bar Harbor and many other points of interest. Best lobster was at Tracey's down the street. Overall a great vacation!

Beautiful house with great views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in your beautiful house. House was very clean and had everything you need. The location was great. Far enough away but not too far from Bar Harbor. Kids enjoyed using the kayaks and having a fire at night. We went to the Crocker House our last night there, and what a great restaurant. We also to Bar Harbor and Acadia a couple times and weather was great. Enjoyed taking a boat over to Cranberry Island. Gotta go to Jordans, great lobster rolls. All in all a great place with lots to do,
