      Quiet Maine Getaway

      Nice quiet location. Some 15 or 20 minutes to much of Acadia and Bar Harbor. Some hiking trails closer as well as local kayaking. Seamless check in process. Comfortable beds. Enjoyed back yard fire pit. Thanks Nancy.

        Mt desert Island

        Property was close enough to amenities but not in the hustle and bustle which was perfect since we brought our dogs. Just like home we had everything we needed provided by the homeowner. It was a great visit and would definitely recommend.

          The property was PERFECT!!

          This property was perfect for a relaxing week visiting Acadia NP. Our expectations were met and even exceeded with this property. It was clean, neat and homey. The fire pit was great and they had TONS of firewood for us to use! There is an awesome trail head across the street and the location is very peaceful and quiet. Several "ponds" and mountains are within a 5-10 min drive of the property and a grocery store is just a few minutes down the road as well. We loved staying here. The management is also very considerate. We accidentally confused our departure date and when the cleaning crew arrived to our surprise, they were very kind and allowed us space and time to gather our things before leaving. The booking process was also simple and straightforward and the manager was quick to respond to questions and concerns. THANK YOU!!!

            Lovely, quiet little spot

            This was a wonderful home base for our 4 day stay in Acadia! My husband & I, and a friend visiting from California, had all we needed in this neat, clean, nicely-outfitted house. Very comfortable and reasonably priced. The homeowners provided a "house book" (wish every VRBO property had something like this!) that included menus, maps, and hints about how to make the most of our time there. Excellent communication, very clean, and an all-around charming spot. We hope to be back next year. Thank you!!
