    4/5 Good

    Comfortable Quietside Home Base

    Comfortable home for exploring MDI. A bit off the beaten path, yet close to some Acadia trails and attractions. Appreciate being able to explore MDI with my dogs.

    5/5 Excellent

    Would definitely come back!

    Loved the location. Clean and comfortable apartment, great for a family with kids. Very convenient to have the large dog crate in the living room. It would have been helpful to have instructions for how to lock the door and how to get live TV to play, but otherwise no other suggestions.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great location in a quiet area

    We were three days in the house and could do a lot in the Acadia National Park. The location is very good and you are far away from the big tourist streams in Bar Harbor. Around the house we saw deer – beautifully to admire them. Many thanks that we were allowed to be guests in your house.

    5/5 Excellent

    Peaceful

    The home is located in a quiet area which was perfect for us! While it’s about a 30 minute drive the Bar Harbor it’s only a short walk to a private beach and Bass Head Light House. There are several good restaurants and a grocery store within a few minutes a drive. We enjoyed the peacefulness at the end of the day after hiking and sightseeing. We were greeted with deer in the yard several times a day. Having laundry was a great bonus. Communication with the owner was easy and the home is well stocked.

    5/5 Excellent

    Peace and quiet

    This property is such a great homebase if you want something a little off the beaten path, but still steps away from Acadia. I stayed here for 4 nights with our family of four, including my 2yo and 5yo. This cute little house had everything we needed: loads of spices, paper products, soaps and detergents, a playset, grill, campfire with wood provided, even a picnic basket which we used everyday in Acadia. The hidden path down to the shore is simply magical! My kids were super excited to find it the evening we arrived. With littles it was about a 20 minute walk through emerald green moss covered forest; it felt like we were in a fairytale! You end up on the rocky shore at a hidden rock beach. This was one of our favorite parts of our entire trip to Maine! I would highly recommend this place!!!
