Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful log home, while exploring Mount Desert Island & Acadia National Park. The quiet wooded setting was awesome, yet accessible to all areas of the island. The home was pleasantly decorated, clean, well maintained, and was truly a home away from home. The layout easily accommodated the seven adults in our 2 families, with all of the privacy and common gathering areas that we needed. We enjoyed grilling on the front deck, and relaxing on the peaceful enclosed back porch. We would definitely like to stay in this home again on our next trip, and recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely home nestled in the woods. Great find!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Location in Some Sounds is central to all of the Island. The house is clean, spacious, and well stocked. We loved the back room to play games, and the screened porch. We watched deer walk right by. The games are provided in a closet. The showers are hot, and powerful. The laundry room is an A-plus. You do not need to bring cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, beach supplies, or mixers for protein drinks because all is available. Including two beach chairs, and towels.

We only had one small issue. The upstairs bed was very hard. My husband and I ended up sleeping in separate beds on vacation, and I was a bit disappointed by that. Otherwise, we had a wonderful time, and I'd definitely use this house again.

Owner's Response: The queen mattress in the upstairs bedroom is a firmer mattress. However, the queen bed in the main floor bedroom is considerably softer. Guests who prefer a soft mattress can choose to sleep in the other queen bed room. The two queen beds enable you to choose the mattress that suits you best!

excellent rental in peaceful area

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Acadia for many years initally camping but the last 5 years we have rented cottages. This was by far the best we ever stayed in . Fully equipped , spacious and spotless. We saw deer every night go thru the yard . The enclosed porch was very relaxing after a busy day of hiking or site seeing. Would highly recommend this rental

Great Place in a Great Area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cottage. It was in excellent shape, clean and spacious. We especially enjoyed the screened porch. The kitchen was very modern and extremely well equipped with a much greater variety of cooking utensils and cookware than would typically be found in a rental unit. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house rather than in a rental cottage. All and all, a very comfortable place to relax and enjoy a respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The unit is located in a quiet neighborhood with plentiful trees. Several small towns are nearby and Bar Harbor is approximately 20-30 minutes away. All and all, a very comfortable place to relax and enjoy a respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.We plan to go back again

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. This was our first experience with renting and vacation home and it was really nice. House is beautiful and clean.

The screened porch was facing the woods and great to sit in the rocking chair and relax. Kitchen was fully equipped. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Fabulous vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home for our summer vacation four years in a row now. The home is warm and uncluttered and extremely clean. Located on a very quiet dirt road with almost no traffic, the house is very convenient to Acadia National Park, downtown Bar Harbor and so many great trails and beaches.

Our kids have enjoyed every visit we've made there and our dog settled in nicely as well.
