      Our family had a wonderful trip to Acadia staying at Big Fox. The location of the house is fantastic. The home is well-maintained and beautifully decorated as advertised. Our family of four and nanny were very comfortable there. We were particularly grateful for Cathy's well thought out recommendations that we put to good use. We would be lucky to return in the future.

      5/5 Excellent

        Wonderful house

        I strongly agree with all the positive reviews. We stayed for a week with our two grade school boys. It is a beautiful house in every respect in an out -- architecturally well done, great landscaping, furnishing, art and appliances. It has a great porch and a separate flagstone patio with seating and a propane grill. It has a new and fresh feeling, and feels like a high end hotel. Location is great. You can walk to town or access a few trails directly behind the house. We had no issues whatsoever, and the owner was a pleasure to communicate with via email.

        5/5 Excellent

          Great home base for Acadia National Park vacation.

          Perfectly located, clean, comfortable and modern. And all the resources of the Asticou Inn are just a walk away.

          5/5 Excellent


            Beautiful home that has been completely renovated, including all new furnishings. Instead of feeling like we were intruding by staying in someone's home, it felt like we were staying in a high end hotel with three bedrooms that comfortably accommodated our family of five. Kitchen is fully equipped. New washer/dryer. Flat panel TV with all of the channels. Great patio with propane grill. Well maintained landscaping. The home is walking distance to Northeast Harbor's shopping, restaurants and marina. Acadia is minutes away by car and Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor are short drives. Nothing to gripe about. Isn't that what vacation is all about?
