It was wonderful! Beautiful and spacious inside.

  • 5 of 5

It was great! Almost everything was just as described - we didn't' need it, but never found the half bath. Kitchen was huge, plenty of dishes, but could use more forks. Big, open kitchen/dining/great room kept us all together, but still space to group out when we wanted to. Electronic door keypad battery went out, but we called it in and was fixed the next day. There was no street sign, but we found the house. Rooms were nicely furnished and decorated. We were four couples in our sixties, but there were lots of kid friendly things for those who need them. Was convenient to go to Bar Harbor, and day excursions north and west. Would definitely stay there again!

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation in Maine at the Oceanfront Chalet. The house had everything we needed with big open space, large kitchen, a beautiful yard and view. We had 4 adults and 5 kids. Playroom downstairs and a nice big yard for the kids to play. We were able to use the kayaks too! If you are coming with multiple families just be aware of the room set up - 4/5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms but only 1 master bedroom has a private bathroom. Mosquitos were really bad so be sure to have bug spray. There is a nice setup outside with a fire pit but mosquitos were so bad we couldn't really use it. House is a nice location with about 10-15 minute drive to Walmart for all shopping/food needs. We spent most of our days doing activities in Bar Harbor/Acadia which we loved. The drive to Bar Harbor/Acadia was longer then we expected - took about 35/40 minutes to get there. Overall a great experience! Waking up every day to this view was just wonderful. The owners were very helpful and reachable. We would definitely go back to this property!

Great property on a quiet cove yet close to everything around Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Property is extremely well laid out with all the conveniences for a large family with children. Large kitchen with indoor/outdoor seating. Views are breathtaking at both sunrise and sunset. Gas fireplace and outdoor fire pit add to the coziness of the Chalet. The downstairs play area provides a wonderful place if the weather doesn't cooperate or just a place to hang out. Kayaking out the back door in a bay area is very calming without the challenges of the open ocean. Flying into Portland keeps your airfare low with a chance to visit L.L.Bean along the way. Weather was perfect!

Great Location, Peaceful, Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. With my parents, sister's family, and my family, we had a total of 10 of us.

The location was perfect! Short drive to bar harbor/Acadia National Park. Just enough outside all of the traffic and tourist areas, but close enough to get there within 15-20 minutes.

The house is stocked with everything that you need, and if it is not there, Shawn and Christine will get it there :-) (We were low on TP, and it was delivered later that day)

We hardly saw our children when we were at the house. They always disappeared to the basement to play with all of the games that are there or outside to run around the large grass lot on the ocean.

We enjoyed a few fires at night in the fire pit and there was still wood there when we left.

The only complaint that I have with our trip was the Mosquitos!!! They were terrible. Must be bad quite often since my husband saw a shirt that showed a mosquito as Maine's State bird! They do have bug spray there, but we had even brought our own and ended up purchasing some citronella candles.

A guy I work with camps in that area every year and said he has never had a problem with mosquitos, so maybe it was just bad when we were there.

Overall, it was a great stay and the family wants to plan another trip.

Absolutely beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week here. A great place for our family to meet back up at the end of each day's exploration and talk over a nice meal. The house was large and accommodated all of our needs. The view was spectacular and the sunsets were breathtaking. I have so many great pictures just from the property. We explored nearby Acadia and Bar Harbor for several days. We ate at the local Ruth and Wimpy's and they did not disappoint. Great food and lots of it! The weather was beautiful the entire time. I have to admit I was concerned not having air conditioning since I don't sleep well if it's warm, but a few fans and opened windows were enough to keep the house comfortable throughout our stay. We also traveled the coastline out to the eastern most point of the US at Quoddy's Point. There is a beautiful lighthouse there and spectacular views. It was a terrific family vacation and this house made it even better.
