Recent Mount Desert guest reviews

Loved this house! It was very clean and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The upstairs game/tv room was great for the younger adults and the older adults enjoyed the quiet of the downstairs living room. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, pots, and pans for anyone who loves to cook. The younger adults enjoyed the hot tub too! Great house in a great location to Acadia and Bar Harbor!

Space and location were exactly what we needed. Pictures accurately represent the home…cookware, furniture, floors dated but functional.

The location is great for couples looking for a spot to stay while visiting Acadia. Pretty barebones with regards to amenities (hence the 4 stars), but I imagine anyone looking to stay in this area is not looking for a 5-star, all inclusive resort and just wants a place to sleep after a long day of adventuring. Stairs are pretty steep as well, so would not recommend the house for anyone who may not be able to climb stairs easily.
