Cozy Hideaway Away From The Crowds
Our stay at Nicks place was great. The property is probably the most well stocked place we've every stayed at. If you need it, it's likely there. The home is sized well and the clean floors gave our 9-month old son plenty of room to crawl around :) The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable, especially if you like your bed on the softer side. And the "My Pillow" sheets and pillows were wonderful (may have to buy some of those!). There is no cell signal at this area of MDI (Verizon or AT&T), but the property has excellent Wifi and a landline phone. There is also cable/satellite TV. As for location, it worked well for us. It's about a 7min drive to reach the Jordan Pond House and 15min to Bar Harbor. The Bass Harbor Lighthouse is about 40mins depending on traffic. Nick is a very accommodating host and a wealth of knowledge on the area. He is always happy to answer questions or recommend places to eat or visit. He informed us that the staple treat of MDI, the infamous Popovers, were best at the Asticou Inn (highly recommended) since they were the former owners of the Jordan Pond House and they brought with them many of the classic recipes. He has also stocked the property with many brochures, booklets, maps and other information on the area. We look forward to our next trip to MDI and our stay at Nicks place.
