About Kathy Norwood
My husband and I built Eden House in 1975 on family property. Our families are both local and we are descendants of the first residents of Mount Desert Island. We are very proud of our island. It has been a wonderful place to raise a family and our children live close by!
Kathy Norwood purchased this House in 1975

Wonderful place in secluded setting yet only a short drive from Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor
This rental was perfect for the two of us. The past two years we had stayed at a different rental a few miles away but liked it here so much that we will return next year. The house is set back a good distance from the road, secluded, no road noise, yet only a short drive to Bar Harbor, Acadia NP, and Southwest Harbor. Convenience stores and a gas station were two minutes away. Also, as luck would have it, we got to meet the owners, Kathy and Bruce, shortly after we arrived. They were exceedingly helpful with information about the area. We probably spent half an hour chatting with them. The house had great internet and TV reception, plenty of hot water and the kitchen was well stocked. Frank and Melody from PA
Convenient location to main attractions
Excellent little home among the trees. Had everything you would need except central AC. Two window units didn't do it when temperatures were in the 90s. The owners couldn't have been nicer and the house is well equipped.
If you like blueberry pancakes, the fixings are provided by Kathy and Bruce. We would recommend.
We just loved the house and its location. The house is very cozy, clean and beautifully decorated.
We had a wonderful stay on MDl.The weather was just right, high 60 and low 70, and the house was magical. Kathy and Bruce are such wonderfull and thoughtful hosts - they have included everything that one would need during the stay. Thanks for sharing your house with us. Vinka, Charlene and Ruth from Ohio
Eden house was perfect for our week in Maine.
Situated in a private wooded area, down a dirt track, this property gave us peace and quiet while still being close to places of interest.
The house had everything we needed for our vacation, we were very comfortable.
Peaceful relaxing clean and comfortable
We enjoyed our stay and Kathy was wonderful to work with. Well stocked kitchen, lots of what you need re toiletries and bedding and pancakes. So quiet here which we liked but a short drive to the heart of Acadia. Highly recommend!
It was better than we even hoped it would be. Nestled in the woods. The perfect getaway:)
We had a lovely experience at this house. We were greeted briefly by the owner and she seemed lovely then the rest of our stay it was all ours. It was fully stocked with any little thing you may want or need. It even had a side rail we used on the bed for our toddler. It was private and peaceful and but a short drive to Acadia National Park. There was road construction during our stay so it was slightly confusing but Kathy made a point to leave all the info we needed to make it as easy as possible. The beds were comfy, the shower was hot, and it was hard to leave. We would definitely stay here again. My only complaint was that the actual open ocean was far enough away that always required a drive which was not much of a complaint but at the house it felt more like a woodland vacation than an ocean vacation but honestly it was not far and it was lovely.
We are minutes from the Acadia Park entrance, Sand beach, hiking trails and ponds.
