                                                          My family and I would've stayed there forever if we could. Best vacation experience and also the best landlords. My daughter had a blast playing with the neighborhood kids. My wife and I enjoyed the all of the trails and sights. Northeast harbor is a gorgeous spot to be in. I highly recommend this place.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          So many thanks for the nice review. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. We hope to see you again someday. Have a great summer!

                                                          Clean, convenient, cozy

                                                          Elana G.

                                                          Perfect place for our family of 5 (2 adults, 1 infant, and 2 dogs). The pictures don't do it justice. The owner was super nice. Great location- close enough to bar harbor and the park, but far enough to make it more affordable. Would definitely go back.

                                                          Best value we found in beautiful Northeast Harbor

                                                          Tim T.-

                                                          We love it anytime we get to stay here. Very well appointed cottage that is bright and cheery with a very convenient location to town, restaurants and the Island Explorer. We found the fans more than adequate to keep us cool as the nights are very cool in the summer and we usually have to close the windows at night. It is very close to the ocean. We'll be back!

                                                          Nice Apartment With Fully Stocked Kitchen

                                                          Angela C.

                                                          Apartment had a working refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, coffee pot and washer & dryer. Kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, utensils, cups, glasses, etc. Bathroom had plenty of towels. There was some coffee, sugar, oil, balsamic vinegar, sale & pepper. There was just a small tube of shampoo but there was plenty of laundry detergent. Both bedrooms had working fans; don't think there was an A/C and the 2nd bedroom (without a window) was a little hot even with the fan on. Only problems were the people upstairs moving furniture late at night and the size of driveway made available for this 2nd floor apartment. We had a pickup and it barely fit in the spot. We backed in and had a hard time squeezing in between the house and truck on one side, and, the wires on the other side. Also, I had sent the check (2-day service with proof) to the PO address (walking distance from apartment), by mistake, and Tim wasn't too happy. I should've sent it to the Real Estate business half an hour away. The Post Office allowed me to send it overnight though. Please just double-check the lease since the address is at the bottom. We also had to pay a security deposit which they have 30 days to return. On Aug. 2, we still haven't received it and the last day of the rental was July 21. Not sure I will use VRBO again since we didn't like signing a lease and paying a security deposit of which we don't know if we'll get back. There is no one there to double-check the state of the apartment when you leave. However, we did leave it clean with everything working. In the lease, it also states we have to strip the beds and start the laundry. However, we had to pay an additional $125 cleaning fee for maybe 1 to 2 hours work of cleaning the bathtub, sinks, making the beds and washing the towels.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          I'm sorry you had a mixed experience for your first VRBO reservation. I always contact the prospective renters several times to make sure the payments are mailed to the correct address as we are an hour away from our home in the summer. I'm sorry you didn't care for the security deposit but everyone charges one for their rentals. All fees and conditions are clearly stated in the lease BEFORE the renter pays and that is the time at ask questions. We are always available by email or phone for any questions as I am a real estate broker. Cleaning of the cottage takes 3-4 hours to do a thorough job. We hope to see you again. Cheers

                                                          Very clean and in a good location

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Glad you had a nice experience. We always try to check everyone in personally so we can answer the many questions that guests have upon arrival. Not just about the accommodations but about Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor and the surrounding area. Hope to see you again soon!

                                                          Awesome apartment at an awesome price in an awesome location!

                                                          We have stayed at Tim's apartment twice and both times it has been an awesome experience. The apartment is as described with two bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The living area is ample with a fully equiped kitchen for cooking. Tim was great to work with and always responded promptly. The location in northeast harbor is great for exploring Acadia National Park and is within walking distance to a trail head. I would highly recommend this apartment.
