      Great House but had issue with the water

      Overall, this is a great property. It is well located and furnished and has a lot of space for the family. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cookware you need and there are tons of toys for the kids to play with. We all had a great time at the property. Our major issue was we had an issue with the water at the property. Midway during our second day at the property we lost all running water. We contacted the property manager right away but it ended up taking nearly two days for them to send someone. In the interim, we figured out that there was a running toilet upstairs which was emptying out the water tank. We were able to temporarily fix the issue until the plumber came. Overall, a great property but the lack urgency with fixing the running water issues was disappointing.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great family time

        We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this house. We loved sitting around the fire pit at night looking up at the stars- the owners had a lot of fire wood on site. This house had every possible kitchen gadget for our use. They had bikes, a canoe, horseshoes, board games, etc for use. The walk to the water is about 5 minutes, which is well worth it especially at sunset! We saw seals playing out in the water which was very neat! The owners have beach towels, sunscreen, bug spray, spices and so many other small things that make you realize how much they want you to have a good time. The house was about 45 min to Acadia National Park, which was not bad at all, especially the beautiful scenery on the way. You are constantly looking out both windows because you pass by small mountains, rivers, ponds, etc- absolutely stunning!

        5/5 Excellent
