Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was in this lovely home! Very easy to relax and enjoy our stay on the quiet side of MDI - esp with a house full of young adults and our pet! Great location, beautifully decorated and extremely clean, we would highly recommend this to others.

Amy has put a lot of thought into ensuring this property is a home away from home. Everything is neat & clean, and nicely decorated. Lots of comfortable seating areas. Everything you need in the kitchen. Plenty of room in bedrooms and baths. We were two couples and two dogs. Outside area was perfect for the two dogs to play and outside seating and fire stove for us to enjoy. Location is private and convenient to local retail and outdoor activities, walking trails, etc. Highly recommend and would definitely return if we vacation in the area again. Thank you, Amy!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at stepping stone! The house was well suited for 2 couples to stay. It felt cozy and the owner even left wood so that we could enjoy a fire outside. This was in a quiet area only about 30 minutes drive to bar harbor and Acadia. We would definitely stay again.

Great Home

  • 4 of 5

This house is hidden away at the end of a quiet dead end street. Far enough away from the road that you can't hear the vehicles but you can't still hear the waves from the ocean crashing over the rocks while you are sitting around a cozy fire just outside of the front door. More than likely at some point you'll see some deer walking through the yard. It's a little bit of a drive to get to some of the more popular places on the island but overall very convenient location. What look like recent renovations are well thought out and make all of the spaces feel very open and inviting.

Room from improvement: More toilet paper and hand soap to be available in the bathrooms.

Would absolutely stay here again.

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay for three nights with our goldendoodle! The house was very modern and clean and had everything we needed for our trip to Acadia. We enjoyed the quiet feel away from the craziness of Bar Harbor. We would love to return someday soon!

Great house to stay in for Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Acadia and this home was a good base. It was a quiet and safe area, close to many of our most enjoyable hikes, and 30 minutes from Bar Harbor. Southwest Harbor is about 10 minutes away with a couple of great restaurants and bakeries.

The house was perfect for 4 adults and 2 dogs. We were so happy to bring our two labs to Acadia, they truly had the times of their lives! The house is so cute, the decorations are as cute as the pictures, and there were even fresh cut wildflowers in a vase when we got there. We mostly ate at outdoor restaurants with our dogs, but the kitchen was great for the couple of breakfasts we ate at the home. The beds were comfortable. The house was very tidy and super clean, and it was nice to have a brand new washer and dryer to use. The showers didn't have the strongest pressure, but who cares you'll be hiking all day anyway! There was plenty of bathroom counter space for getting ready in the morning. We travel extensively and thoroughly enjoyed this vacation, the ease of this house and the ability to bring our dogs made it a perfect trip.

Want to explore Acadia National Park? It is a 14 mile drive to the main entrance from Balsam Way. Looking to stay on the quiet side and explore the mountain trails and beaches? Balsam Way is 5 miles from Echo Lake beach and some of the most beautiful hiking trails Mount Desert Island has to offer!
