Great house, great location
The house worked perfectly for our needs. We will likely be back!
Excellent location for this Acadia vacation home
My family of 8 spent last week in this perfectly situated home. It's just a short drive to several park entrances and the town of Bar Harbor. Location, location, location! It was easy to get to Sand Beach, Jordan Pond and Thunder Hole. Otter Cliffs Rd. is very quiet with minimal traffic.
The lay-out of the home was perfect for 3 couples and 2 teenagers. Plenty of privacy. It was extremely hot when we were there, so we had the fans going in the bedrooms every night. There isn't much cross breeze in the great room, but we found a fan to circulate the air.
The kitchen has plenty of space. We grilled so we didn't heat up the kitchen by using the oven. Excellent laundry facilities.
The deck was wonderful for dinner or just relaxing.
Ken was very responsive to my questions. We can definitely recommend this home.
Beautiful property at a wonderful location.
It was perfect for us.
The 3-tier cabin is nestled in the woods very close to Acadia National Park. It is also logistically located to almost anything you would want to do. Everything we did, kayaking, chartering a sail boat, hiking trails, shopping and dining in the quaint town of Bar Harbor. We, especially, enjoyed the deck looking out into the woods. Great place for evening drinks and playing family games, and morning coffee and breakfast. Also, there is an area to have a small fireside chat, or visit with family members. The cabin accommodated our family of eight comfortably. Everyone had their own space. There was a pool table and a football table for team events. Would rent this property again in a heartbeat!
Great family vacation in Acadia at a perfect location!
My brother and I took our family's to Acadia and rented this home for a week. It was perfect! We were centrally located to the major activities. We were about a 10 minute drive into the town of Bar Harbor and about 10 minutes from Sand Beach. (Getting to Sand Beach/Beehive was about 20 minutes, because you have to drive north given the one way road into the area, but getting back after a long day was super quick!) The house had everything we needed including a BBQ on the deck that we used. There is a lobster pot in the house, which we used to prepare lobsters that we bought from Parson's (a local recommendation). At night we used the fire pit where we roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. The beds were very comfortably and linens are provided so you don't have to bring your own. I don't recall if there was central air, but we didn't need it. There are fans. Towels are provided, but I'd recommend that you bring your own. The shower on the first floor is small, and has a tendency to spritz water out of the curtain, despite pulling it closed. I'd recommend putting a towel down on the floor rather than a mat. (I found that if the mat got wet it wouldn't dry overnight, so I switched to towels.) The layout was great, especially if you have multiple kids. The one bedroom upstairs is great for a couple, the first floor has two bedrooms which is good for parents who want to be one room over from small children. The lower level was great for our teenagers with two bedrooms, a common are with a pool table, a sofa and a bathroom. Also on the first floor the kitchen opens to the deck and the living room. We did take games, but there were some in the house, so we probably could have left ours at home. Finally, the grocery store and the liquor store were right in town, about 15 minutes away. The grocery store gets crowded on the weekends, so be prepared. We're not from Maine and didn't realized that you can buy wine and alcohol in the grocery store, so you don't have to make two trips.
I can't end this review without commenting on the owner, Ken. He is super responsive and helpful! This is the first time we used a VRBO and I was a little nervous about how this works. He gave clear instructions and any time I had a question, he quickly got back to me. My deposit check was returned to me within a few weeks of returning from our trip with no issue. Thank you, Ken!
