Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

2017 is our 8th year in a row visiting MDI. What made this year different is we now have a one year old black lab that we wanted to take with us so we needed to find a pet friendly home. Needless to say, we hit the jackpot! Our family of four plus pup had the best week at Jesse and Jennifer's house. Room for all, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, quiet neighborhood setting for walks, beautifully landscaped yard and close to the park and downtown Southwest Harbor. We did our usual hikes and Sand Beach visits but also threw in an evening of paddle boarding and kayaking on Long Pond and finally experienced the island from the water on a nature cruise. MDI never disappoints and neither does this house. Thanks for a great week!

Peaceful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, located back off the main street but close to town. Lots of things to do on the "quiet side" of MDI. The owner was very helpful, quick response time. We enjoyed our stay.

A Great Base for Exploring Acadia on Quiet Side

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay for the last week in Sept. A very clean and comfortable stay for 5 adults and our two dogs. We took several walks down the road to explore the area, Long Pond lake is within walking distance. (great hiking trails there and fishing spots). We loved our stay in Southwest Harbor and would definitely stay on this side of the island again...we did not like the crowds near Bar Harbor. Any issues we had, Jesse was there immediately to take care of it - the heat was not turned on and we had a dip in temperature, so he resolved that. The only other issue with the house was water pressure was not great...we took showers one at a time. This only seemed to be an issue for showers or baths. We would definitely consider coming back here as we loved the location and roomy clean home...everything was provided. Loved the ducks who came for a daily visit...so peaceful and porch swings. Don't hesitate to book here and we want to come back to Maine again...it was more beautiful than we expected!

Very good value on the Quite Side of MDI

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The process for renting was streamlined and Jesse responded to my inquiries within 24 hours. Simple instructions when departing too. My daughters loved the swings out front and the fire pit in the back. Feels even more spacious inside than the pictures show. We brought our dog and the pet fee was very reasonable and even walked the dog to Long Pond. Would rent this property again.

Comfortable House for Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

House was well equipped for 6 adults. Located very close to Long pond hiking trails on the quieter side of Desert Island. It takes about 20-25 minutes to drive to Bar Harbor.

Only issue we encountered was water pressure. Only 1 person can shower at a time ; which is very inconvenient when 6 people are trying to get cleaned up after a day out.

House is more suitable for 4 people due to inability to utilize several water sources at the same time.

Loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay here. Loved the hammock chairs & watching the ducks play in the pond. Everything was just perfect. I would recommend this place if looking for a place to stay. Will stay here again if we return to the area
