Absolutely beautiful house and view!! Will definitely come back!
The property, house, and view were amazing. Had a wonderful week. Hated to leave. Felt like home. The house was well stocked with everything you would need. Enjoyed watching the seals from the deck!!!
Vacation in Maine
The property and house were beautiful.
Loved walking out to Kiss Point each morning to search for shells and beautiful stones
The view from the deck was stunning.
we had a wonderful week in Acadia and at the Kissery Point!!!
Well-equipped house and very clean. Had everything we needed
We stayed there with our two pets that loved the fenced in backyard. The house was equipped with more than everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and although we bought our own pillows the pillows provided would have been sufficient. House is only five or 10 minutes from major shopping grocery stores and Walmart supercenter in Ellsworth. House is about 20 minutes to Acadia Park entrance and 25 minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. I would highly recommend this property .
Lovely home in a lovely location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home which is ideally located, well furnished, and located on a quiet lane which ensures privacy.
This is definitely a candidate for a return visit.
Wonderful week in beautiful house.
Location., location, location!
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!
