Great house on the quiet side but walkable to breakfast, coffee and trails

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here for a week in September. The front porch was perfect for coffee and watching the wild turkeys and deer graze in the yard. We loved the fire pit in the back yard to roast marshmallows and look at the stars. Overall a great house in a great location. We would definitely stay here again!

The house was exactly as pictured and just perfect for the 2 of us and our 3 dogs!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so comfortable and the setting very peaceful. The wraparound porch was perfect for a cocktail or meal outdoors while the living room was a great place to relax on a rainy day. The home was very clean and had everything we needed to cook at home. As animal

lovers we really enjoyed the deer, ducks and turkeys who roam all over the property. The deer must really be accustomed to people because they didn't even get spooked by our car coming and going.

The location is perfect as well within walking distance to Long Pond and its hiking trails and a 5 minute drive to town. We really enjoyed Little Notch bakery and dinner at Red Sky.

Every day we said "we could live in this house" and meant it! We will be back. Shelley M. CT

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.

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 peaceful and porch swings. Don't hesitate to book here and we want to come back to Maine 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.
