Our Highest Recomendation!
The place is spotlessly clean, and nicer than the photos convey. It's well-appointed and in a convenient location. The host is very amiable and acomodating. We look forward to enjoying his hospitality again, in the future
Thanks for a Great review.
Couldn’t be better!
Great location and place was better than the pictures! A great place to stay for the week and so close to Acadia National Park!
Thanks Kristine, much appreciated.
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.
Thanks for such a Great review.
quiet & homey close to park & attractions.
Quiet retreat, walking distance to Park Carriage Roads, close to ocean shores and several dining options. Very comfortable homey atmosphere. Nick was a perfect host, very knowledgeable about area and attentive to any needs. It was located in a nice residential neighborhood, very safe and secure feeling. The house was charming. One thing I did not get from the pictures was how spacious it actually is inside. The kitchen, dining, and living room fill one long room, very open-concept. The dining table seats 6 easily. The kitchen has lots of area to work and cook and is well stocked with dishes, pans, and appliances (even a Keurig machine). There are large double windows around this long room and it is bright and sunny. We slept in the queen size bed and it was totally comfortable. There was a bath tub/shower combo. So good for a hot bath to soak those tired muscles after a hike! The washer and dryer was good to have as well.. Nick was an excellent host and we had a wonderful visit!!
Thanks for such an honest, great review. Hope to see you folks again.
We enjoyed our stay at Hidden Place. Perfect central location. Very responsive owner. It was cozy, quaint and quiet. Nice and clean too! 😊�
Thanks for a lovely review.
Couldn't have asked for a better rental!
My husband and I stayed at Hidden Place Sept. 7-14, 2019. We were very happy when we arrived and found the house to be very clean (which is important to us) and included everything that we needed. The house is tucked away in the nice, quiet neighborhood of Seal Harbor and only about 15 minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. Nick has supplied the house with high quality linens for cozy comfort and the kitchen includes more than any other house we've ever rented. Nick was very welcoming and provided us with lots information, brochures and suggestions for exploring Mount Desert Island and Acadia. We highly recommend Hidden Place and would definitely stay there again next time we visit MDI. Why stay at a hotel when you can have all this? Thank you Nick!!
Thanks for the Very positive review. Hopefully, we'll see you folks again in the future. I also appreciate that you took really good care of the cottage.
