So so experience only book if nothing is available

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week at the end of August a highly desirable time to go to Maine. We booked fairly late and everything else that was charming and in a great location was already booked so we were left w this choice. It is very far from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. If you have kids or even if you just want to come back in day you will have difficulty w lights and traffic. The place has no charm cheap soft beds and linens. Dish washer is weak and dishes and utensils of not great quality. No amenities that are above and beyond. Clearly someone who has never lived here is renting this out. Other two properties on site were also similarly empty. Town has few restaurants and no running paths. If I did it again I'd stay closer to Bar Harbor. Property manager was responsive and did let us check in early. House rules seem onerous but I guess because they don't have anyone stay there routinely and few reviews they haven't become experienced property rental owners yet who understand that when you rent things will become more lived in.

Owner's Response: Most people wouldn't consider that a 15-20 minute drive in peak tourist season was really all that far. There are only 2 traffic lights on the island. Only one traffic light between Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. Can't agree that one traffic light would be difficult. I think the pictures show all the details of the place and what the tenants can expect. Most have been quite happy to stay here at the Captains Den. We provide all amenities you would ever need, except food items. We have 4 rentals on the property, and 2 out of the four were rented at this time. We have had a busy summer with rentals. The calendar says it all. Our places are fairly new and the great majority of tenants have been very pleased with the immaculate accommodations. We have had tenants who have stayed for multiple months and never complained about a lack in amenities. We do have requests for the guests to maintain the property as they stay, as do most vacation rental owners. All of which is stated in the rental agreement, which tenants are aware of before they book the rental property.

Great place to stay when visiting Acadia!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 was very happy staying at this property when visiting Acadia and the Mount Desert Island vicinity. The property is clean, modern looking and very comfortable. Lots of supplies in the kitchen if you want to cook, which we did for breakfast one morning. We went to Beal's a few times, which is only a 5 minute drive away, for the authentic lobster pound experience. We highly recommend this property!

Very good and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The one problem we had was with the internet. Very slow and unreliable. I'm sure the host can attend to that--other than than, this is a well located, comfortable, easy place to stay.

I stayed at one of the units of the captains den this summer for 5 days with my wife and children.

We had a wonderful time and we were very happy with the accommodations. The unit was clean, convenient to Acadia NP & was reasonably priced.

For someone who was traveling quite a distance to get to Maine, the owners have thought of everything. Clean linens, cleaning supplies, all the necessary utensils, plenty of extra toilet paper, etc.

If we ever go to visit Acadia again we would not hesitate at all to arrange a stay here again, we were very happy with everything.

Great location to southeast harbor the "quiet" side of acadia

  • 3 of 5

The best thing about this property is the location within walking distance to nearby businesses.

The unit is new, spacious and clean. However,

For a family of four with teenagers there was not enough comfortable seating and I would not rent it if it was two couples. The couch is small and very uncomfortable. The only chair that is not with the table or bar was not set up to watch tv, not that it mattered because there were so few channels available on the cable. There was ESPN but no hgtv. No DVD player. There was not sugar or coffee or any kind of condiment except salt and pepper stocked in the kitchen. The owners have a very strict 10a checkout time and you are required to clean for the housekeeper(and she leaves an envelope for you to tip her,too!)before you leave so beware if you would like your deposit refunded.

Southeast harbor is a great place to stay and explore Acadia.

We have owned a vrbo in pigeon forge Tn and have stayed in vrbo all over the US and have never stayed in one with as strict policies as this one.

Owner's Response: A set check out time is standard no matter where you stay, whether it be hotel or vacation home. From time to time, we have come across tenants who choose to leave on their own check out time, which causes the housekeeping to be delayed. We provide a very immaculate home away from home for our tenants. The next tenants coming in expect to be able to check in on time. Therefore, our 10:00 a.m check out, allows housekeeping to spend quality time making sure it meets the highest standards of cleanliness that most tenants are pleased to find. We don't expect our tenants to leave it as immaculate as they found it. However, 9/10 the tenants show how much they appreciate very clean accommodations and are happy to make use of the supplies that are provided to maintain the property during their stay and are willing to leave it in good condition upon their departure.
