Excellent house to stay. Bar harbor was like 45 mins away. Schoodic was 20 mins. We lived the rustic feel of the area and the house. It was comfortable too. Host was responsive.
Ideally-located, charming place
We spent a week in this charming house in Sullivan, Maine. It was all prepared for us when we arrived, with beds all made up, towels in the bathroom, and everything nice and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and cookware, and people are encouraged to help themselves to left-over condiments in the fridge. We had a very comfortable stay there. The location is great because there are hiking trails right off the street that the house is on, about 20 minutes away is a tucked-away beautiful pond for swimming, the picturesque Schoodic Peninsula is close by -- this is part of Acadia National Park and has a loop that is great for biking; the town of Ellsworth with lots of major stores is within easy reach by car, and the larger portion of Acadia National Park (Mount Desert Island) is about 45 minutes away. There are also a number of good restaurants in the area. I would definitely recommend this rental.
Charming Maine Getaway
Our family of four, along with our dog, stayed in this charming 2 bedroom home in a rural area of Acadia National Park. We had a wonderful time, and this was the perfect place to stay with all the comforts of home. The house is a light-filled, well maintained, comfortable and peaceful retreat, and we enjoyed traveling to different parts of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The owner provided everything we needed and gave excellent directions and recommendations for area restaurants and hiking spots. I highly recommend this home!
Memorabe First trip to Acadia
My daughter always wanted a rustic house for our week long vacation to Acadia and this house perfectly suited our requirements. It has all the amenities of modern day living with atmosphere of an old house. The location is specially well suited for visiting Schoodic point which is Acadia's mainland park. Even commute to the Bar Harbor and Mt Desert Island(MDI) is not bad at all... We cooked during our entire stay and never faced any difficulty. Though the cell phone has poor coverage inside the house, owner has a landline(of course we never used it) and WIFI Internet is a plus.
Owner's interactions were very pleasant and Steve has provided all the necessary help.
Lovely, comfortable, well-equipped and appointed.
Everything about our stay at this old farmhouse in Sullivan, Maine was perfect. The layout is fairly open for a house of this vintage and the rooms at the front of the house are sun-filled and comfortable. Although situated close to the road, there is little vehicular traffic. Easy-to-moderate conservation trails and blueberry-covered ledges are behind the house. Several charming harbor towns and peninsulas are within a 10 minute car trip or morning's bike ride.
Our dealings with the owner were cordial and efficient. Instructions were clear and not oppressive. All amenities and details about this house in the listing are accurate.
Charming house, rustic but with all modern comfort
we had a very nice time in this charming and rustic house. The owner is very meticulous with the details of the house, one can enjoy the rustic life style but yet has all the modern comfort. Not to mention that the house was so well stocked with everything of needs, such as spices, from olive oil sort of condiments, down to Qtips. Steve, the owner was very considerate, he send me few emails to make sure I know how to turn on the heater and the suggestions of where to eat on Sunday.
The house is very quiet despite its next to a road. Rarely there were cars that came by. It has 2 bedrooms, living room, and kitchen all on 1 floor, but it was very spacious. We cooked and ate in a lot, and the kitchen worked very well. The TV has HDMI, which I wished I knew because I could have brought the Apple TV. Every slept very well in this house, the beds were very comfortable, one queen and one full, plus air mattress if one needs it. Both BR were connected to the Bathroom, and it has a washer and dryer.
There were plenty Mosquitos just like rest of Maine, but the screen doors worked very well. This house is close to frenchman's bay, our kids had a lot fun there dig out some mussels.
Overall, we really enjoyed the house, had a nice country living experience. In fact, we extended 2 days of our stay.
thank you for your very nice review. I found your head phones and a game for the children. I will mail them back when I get back to Brooklyn.
