Location was great
Quaint, cozy place with all amenities you would need. Location was great with easy access to all the places we wanted to go to. We picked the perfect time to view the fall colors which was our main reason to come. The lobster was fantastic!
We really enjoyed staying here. The property had all of the necessities and more to enjoy our stay. The location is a great. Close to Acadia national park entrances without being in crowded Bar Harbor. Tim was a great host and very helpful. Thank you Tim, we will definitely stay here again!
The cabin is a wonderful base while on Mt. Dessert Island. It has comfortable furniture, well stocked kitchen, and nice rooms. We would gladly recommend this place.
Nice Cottage Near Southwest Harbor
Enjoyed our stay immensely. This was in August and we had no interest in staying in Bar Harbor during that time of year with its crowds. We were more interested in Acadia. Cottage and kitchen have dishwasher and all the cooking utensils you'll need. Even a small herb garden out front. Right off of 102. Grocery store close by. Owner very nice according to my wife. Would stay here again.
Everything we wanted for s great trip. The host is very helpful and had great suggestions !
Overall the property is well maintained and supplied, location is convenient. Very comfortable space. Everything we needed was provided.
Great home base for local sightseeing.
Great 2 bedroom rental centrally located on Mt. Desert Island. Comfortable seating when relaxing each evening, and comfortable beds to sleep. The bathroom had a nice tub/shower, but needed another towel rod. A small market was located just up the road for basic grocery needs.
There is plenty to do and see on Mount Desert Island. There is the obvious attraction of Acadia National Park and all it offers. There is the charm of Bar Harbor, offering evening shopping and restaurants galore! There is also : Whale watching / Lobster boat tours / Sail boat trips / Sea fishing / Fresh water fishing / Water Taxis to the surrounding Islands / Horse drawn carriage rides (from Jordon Pond House, a beautiful part of the park) / Sand Beach also in the park / Echo Lake Beach, in Southwest Harbor (a very popular beach with locals & tourists alike, offering restrooms, changing facilities and lifeguards) a great way to laze away a day! / and lots more, so come and rent our place and get some more useful tips from us! Thank you, Tim & Sian .
