Quiet and relaxing home get away
We loved the house, with its open floor plan and country feel. The area was quiet and the stars magnificant at night. No problems to report. The owner is quick to respond to any issues and address them. The location is well suited to hiking trails accessible from the house, and swimming ponds and lakes are nearby so you don’t have to drive far to have fun. We enjoyed our visit very much.
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.
