Great place to visit Acadia.

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet, peaceful, and well-stocked with kitchen things. The location worked out well for us to visit various parts of the national park as well as the small towns around Mt. Desert Island. I would stay there again.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

Tucked away on the end of a cul-de-sac is a nicely kept home that was comfortable and accommodating. As someone who uses time share properties, it was nice to have spices and kitchen basics handy for cooking. I loved the tall window in the living room. We had a full moon on our trip and it was so beautiful to see through the window. There was a reasonable length drive to Bar Harbor for groceries or into Acadia Park. Maine is a beautiful state.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a great location that's convenient for just about any point of interest on Mount Desert Island. In addition it's close to Trenton and Ellsworth for shopping and other interests. The house was built in a very nice setting with tall trees all around. It's very private! The owner has thought of just about everything you might need inside and out. Inside are games and reading material of all kinds, an office with wireless internet service for your computer and phones if you want, a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of room just to lounge around if that's your desire.

We really enjoyed our stay there!

Lovely Woodsy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Pine Heath Cottage. It was a beautiful place to stay. The cottage was spotless, stocked with everything you'd need, and so nicely arranged. Location was perfect as we wanted to see and do things all over the island. Hope to return soon.

Peaceful retreat with easy access to everything

  • 5 of 5

We loved Pine Heath Cottage. It was clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The owner was easy to reach and answered all of our questions, including helping us find a mechanic! We were able to find lots of good hikes just a few miles from the house, without needing to go into the park from the Main Entrance every day. SW Harbor is only a few minutes away and has a good vibe.Bar Harbor was also easily accessible without having to enter on the main road. We have a 3 year old and found a great playground about 2 miles away. (Because we were there for 2 weeks, we also went to a couple of community carnivals and free movie nights in both BH and NE Harbor. Lots of great things for families.) Mount Desert Island is a beautiful place and Pine Heath Cottage was the perfect retreat after a day of adventuring and exploring!

I know I hate grabbing all this stuff that I may only use 20% of when there and feel it is a nice added benefit for guests. I have lived on Mount Desert Island for 25 years and am happy to answer any questions about things to do in the area. Also, for music lovers you can listen to your music on your Ipod or Iphone through the stereo system in the house.
