We used this house as a home base to go hiking in Acadia and check out Bar Harbor, the location was ideal and the house was great to use! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Enjoyed our 5 day trip to Acadia. This home was a short ten minute drive to the National Park and we enjoyed relaxing in the outdoor spaces after returning from exploring the park with our 4 kids. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Nice house, the deck on the outside as well as the grill were great, large outdoor table, great amenities including lots of fire wood, many board games. Kitchen was well stocked with plenty of seats. Main complaint would be that very little hand soap/ dish soap, body soaps, paper towels, laundry detergents, for a house with 4 bedrooms and multiple guests staying for a week it was not nearly enough and we had to buy our own. Other small complaint is that it’s near a 45 mile per hr road so could hear the noise at night. Overall our stay was great and we would stay there again.

We had a wonderful time in this beautifully renovated home. It was about 7 miles from downtown Bar Harbor and the main entrance to Acadia National Park. It was also nicely located to access the Southwest Harbor and the quiet side of Acadia. The 4 bedroom house came with a grill, plenty of outdoor seating, fire pit, horse shoes and croquet.
