Newly Renovated Home w/ Large Yard & Great Kitchen - Near Downtown & Acadia!

Find all the space you need for a memorable getaway with loved ones at this newly remodeled home just outside downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Spend your mornings hiking, sailing, and whale watching, and your afternoons relaxing in the home's lovely gathering spaces both inside and out.

As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a thoughtfully renovated interior with large windows and a layout that's ideal both for gathering with friends and family and for finding quiet spots to escape to. The professional-grade kitchen, the eight-person dining room, and the open living room seamlessly blend together, with the former offering stainless steel appliances and a center island with bar seating for three. There's a flatscreen TV in the living room to keep you entertained as you cook (one of six TVs in the house), built-in surround sound speakers, and beautiful, private outdoor space with a large yard and a gas grill for summer barbecues. After dinner, you can watch movies in the cozy loft space, toss the day's clothes in the washer/dryer, and sleep soundly in one of four bedrooms.

What's nearby:
This home is located on the north side of Mount Desert Island, just south of Bar Harbor Road (Route 3) and nine miles west of downtown's charming shops and restaurants. In many ways, it's the perfect location on the island, no matter if you're planning to hike, ride bikes, or go fishing, sailing, whale watching, or kayaking. If you head southeast, you'll reach the most popular parts of Acadia National Park in no time, with the Hulls Cove Visitor Center only seven miles east. And if you head south, you can explore the less traveled quiet side of Mount Desert Island, with the scenic Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse 15 miles south.

This house had plenty of room for gathering together and enough space if you wanted some time to yourself. Beautiful setting.
House was clean, spacious. Having 4 king size beds and 3 full bathrooms was a major plus! Kitchen had everything we needed.

Like other reviews, window treatments at least on bathrooms and main floor bedroom would be a great addition, as well as some instructions for TV, audio and fireplace.

Overall a wonderful place and hoping to come back next year!

This house is very spacious - lots of room to spread out. Big living, dining, and kitchen area. Every bedroom has plenty of windows with a nice view. It seems every room in the house has a TV. The grounds are beautiful with a big lawn all around and horseshoe pit, patio and outdoor seating. the house is surrounded by forest. No neighbors in sight. We did find it a bit odd that there is not one single window treatment. No curtains, shades, or shudders in the entire house, There are also no pictures on the walls. The main living space is a bit echoey. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.

Lots of great things about this place.
The Good:
It is a fantastic space - great for several couples or a large family. So nice to have 3 full bathrooms for 3 of the bedrooms. And yes, there are 2 sets of washers/dryers. Comfortable LR furniture and beds.
It is located in a private, peaceful setting that easily accesses all areas on MDI.
The kitchen is very well equipped and the outdoor space is quite nice with the patios, horseshoe pit and outdoor grill.
There are many closets/storage spaces (except in one bedroom) and light switches are labeled which was helpful.
The TV has Netflix, Amazon prime, YouTube, etc.

The Not So Good:
No coffee maker 😞, just a Keurig
Used refillable Keurig pod and water still in the Keurig
Slow communication from Vacasa for questions
No curtains - ok downstairs but would be nice for bedrooms and bathrooms.
No house manual/ TV instructions.

The Bad
Fresh 4 inch size wet spot on couch on 3rd floor
Dirty tub with black hair on drain

Overall, the house was very clean (except that tub) and we would recommend this place and enjoy staying here again.

Manager response:
Thank you for such a thorough and helpful review. The listing does state the home has a Keurig and apologize if this was missed. We will remind housekeeping to clean out the used pods. The spot on the couch is a stain from wax that we are working on getting removed. We hope to host you again in the future!

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandy Dream. It was easy to find, had plenty of bedrooms & baths, a large well kept yard as well as privacy. After getting used to the somewhat crazy stairs we settled in well. We arrived in what we guess was a Maine heatwave. By adding some fans from Home Depot we were able to sleep comfortably. Positives: Location; The WiFi worked well; The kitchen was well equipped (we used it); The house was very clean. Negatives: Lack of seating in the main living area; No cushions for the outside furniture (We would have used the outside if there was adequate seating to match the size of the home); and NO window coverings made for much too early mornings. If you come here bring eye shades.
