25 Pines is a wonderful place to come spend your vacation. Located on a quiet street and just a stroll to the ocean, this log built, raised cape has so much to offer. The 3 level floor plan has space for everyone(except pets, sorry). On the daylight level a central sitting area joins 3 bedrooms, a full bath and a fitness room. The second level is highlighted by an open kitchen/dining/living area that opens onto a covered porch. The second level, also, includes 2 more bedrooms and another full bath. A private staircase leads to the master bedroom on the 3rd level. A cozy loft book nook has it's own steps across the house from the master. You can spend your days in the park(Acadia National Park Visitors Center is just a mile away) and go into the village of Bar Harbor at night to try the many fine restaurants and shops. The central location is only about a 20 minute drive to most other points of interest on Mount Desert Island. Maine vacationing at it's best ~ 25 Pines!

So spacious, very comfortable, convenient to town
We truly enjoyed our stay here. The house is very spacious and the open floor plan was perfect for two families (8 people total). Kids loved being able to have their own bedrooms, and made tons of use of the outdoor tetherball and basketball, along with the fire area and outdoor seating. Furniture/beds were comfortable, kitchen was well-equipped. This is not a luxury property, it is homey and rustic, which was exactly what we wanted for a week exploring Acadia and the beautiful region. We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Great place to stay, close to town
25 pines is a great place to stay, on a quiet side street, a few miles from downtown Bar Harbor. We had 7 adults and 4 children at the house during our stay. There was plenty of room and we never felt crowded. There is a yard with picnic table and fire pit, as well as a picnic table on the porch.
We enjoyed our stay. Everything in the home was clean and well cared for and we enjoyed the natural log home feel.
We would recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the area. The home is bigger than the pictures look.
The owners live on site in a small house. They were very nice to talk with the two times we saw them outside, other than that, we wouldn’t have know that they were even around.
One thing to know: the house sits back on the property, it is easier to see it in daylight.
The Homeaway description of the house and amenities was accurate and exactly what we experienced.
Perfect for our family!
Our entire family (8 adults and all of our kids) spent a week here and couldn't have been happier. The pictures do not do this house justice. Each bedroom is spacious, and the bathrooms are updated. Located off the main road which allowed us to take daily walks to the ocean with our kids, and had no fear of them playing outside without us. There was plenty of space for us to spread out in the house and the kids enjoyed the toys outside. I would recommend this rental and any other houses they were renting- the entire process was stress free, communication was efficient, and everything was as advertised. Awesome vacation for our whole family.
My husband and I stayed at 25 Pines while vacationing with another family. Together we have four small children and I was worried that they would get cabin fever being cooped up together but it turned out to be the opposite! The house was huge, so much more spacious than it looks in the pictures. The kids had plenty of room to play inside and out. They loved exploring outside and we even saw deer walking through the backyard! Everything in the house is clean and obviously well cared for. We had so much fun we're already planning to come back next year.
Thank you very much for the fabulous review. It is hard to show the true feeling of a house but you have brought 25 Pines to life! We are so glad to know how well it fit your vacationing group !
The owners take special pride in the immaculate way the house is presented to all renters ~
We would be thrilled to have you return ~ thank you, again ~
Excellent, Wonderful Property - Highly Recommended
We rented the property for the 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration of my parents with multiple families staying here. Could not recommend this property more highly. It is immaculate and well maintained. Great customer service. Realtor was great with very prompt response to questions and concerns via email, cell phone and text. Very quiet property with owners very responsive and unobtrusively next door. I would recommend this property to anyone. Ideally located just 4.5 miles away from downtown Bar Harbor and the entrance to Acadia National Park. Very short walk to the ocean. Wonderful layout of home to accommodate large gatherings. Would love to come back again. Pictures don't do it justice.
We would love to have you come back ~ We so appreciate how gently you used our rental! Thank you for pointing out the best parts of staying at 25 Pines, too ~ We would like to add that it is a wonderful place to see the island and Acadia National Park hands-free, as the Island Explorer goes right by the road to 25 Pines ~ Thank you so much for sharing the celebration of your parents 60th Anniversary and how much you enjoyed your vacation, here ~
Fun in Maine
I stayed at this cottage with 5 of my girlfriends and we had the best time. It was close to everywhere down town Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, great view of Frenchman's bay, very quiet and spacious. The pictures does not give this place justice it is much nicer than the pictures portray. It was a little bit difficult to locate because it is not very visible from the street and there is a fairly long driveway leading to the cabin. If I ever go back to Maine I would definiely stay at this cabin again.
The cabin was clean and spacious and had everything to make us comfortable. Just luv it.
