What a wonderful week! Every window with a view... the deck was magical - sitting there and looking out at the water, all my cares melted away!

The house is spacious and well laid out. Perfect for two families with kids of different ages. Room to be together, and room to be alone. The kitchen had absolutely everything you could possibly need. Maybe a few more wine glasses would have been nice (which just speaks to the quality of the relaxation time!) We were able to enjoy many meals in the house. Some of our group found the beds to be too soft, some of us found them just right, but all told the bedding was lovely, crisp and clean.

Additionally, while the home can not be considered 100% handicap accessible, it is quite close, at least for our family needs. There are no thresholds throughout the house, two first floor bedrooms (one fits a wheelchair) and a downstairs bath with a full tub and plenty of floor space. I do not believe there were any steps to get from the driveway to the house, but there were a few "lips" around the walkway. The house isn't cluttered, which made it easy to navigate throughout. and the deck was flush with the home.

I honestly can't say enough about the location. We enjoyed watching the amazing eagle that must have a nest in the woods right next door do his thing - fishing, and flying over to see what was going on. The ever changing view was mesmerizing and relaxing. And the hours spent down on the rocks and away from all electronics was good for the soul. All that, and close to all the amenities. And last but not least, it isn't easy to find such a nice place that allows you to bring your well behaved dog! Made the family vacation 100% complete.

Thank you for letting us enjoy Kissick Point!

Paradise in Maine

  • 5 of 5

Perfection. The house is outstanding in accommodations, decor and views. The contemporary home is very well maintained, providing the guests with every accoutrement. Our family loved kayaking in the Bay, playing fetch with our black lab at Kissick Point and taking in the stunning sunsets. The views from the home were equally breathtaking and it was very hard to leave this place... Acadia is nearby and we highly recommend the early morning trek for sunrise on Cadillac mountain. It's worth every footstep in the dark to experience the dawn atop! Thank you Daria and Scott for an outstanding vacation.

Great place to stay for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of eight that stayed at this lovely house and everyone was happy with everything. The location is quiet and beautiful, the house is accommodating and had almost everything you could need or want. We went to Acadia and/or Bar Harbor every day and it was an easy drive with no traffic. Sunsets from the deck were beautiful and the fire pit was fun. The bald eagles flew past most days, and the seals made themselves known both day and night! We would definitely recommend this house to anyone traveling to the area.

Great house! Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven thoroughly enjoyed the week at Kissick Point. The house was clean and well stocked, beds/linens were very comfortable and the location was perfect. The kids enjoyed waking up and walking along the beach, watching the tide come in and searching for shells and rocks. Grocery stores are nearby and the drive to Acadia was about 20 minutes. The back porch was the perfect spot to have a morning cup of coffee. We also loved the outdoor fire pit! The owners were thoughtful, provided us with great tips and communicated with us in a timely manner. Overall, one of our best vacation rentals!

Spacious house on a tranquil, water-front property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had room to spare and enjoyed every day of our week on the property. The kitchen is fully equipped. Additionally, the house is clean and the surrounding property is private and quiet.

Great House with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Kissick Point. The house was well maintained and has fantastic views of the bay. We saw Bald Eagles and Seals almost every day. The way the house is setup, every bedroom has a terrific view of the water. The location is remote and quiet, but still close enough to stores and sight seeing. The only (small) negative I could say is none of the bedrooms had alarm clocks. Like most people, I use my cell phone as an alarm clock so I didn't think of this as a problem. But what I learned about being so far east is that the sun rises early. There were several days where I thought it must be at least 8:30 when I woke up only to reach for my phone and see it was 5:45. An alarm clock that I could just glance at without having to reach for my phone and press some buttons would have been nice so I could have just told my brain "too early, back to bed." Otherwise, the house was clean, well maintained, had plenty of room, and terrific views. I highly recommend this house if you're looking for a great place to stay in Maine.
