Comfortable family vacation
This was a great place for our family of 5 to stay for vacation. Easy access to all Mt Desert Island has to offer. Would recommend.
Nice home in a good location for Acadia
This is a nice home and was in a good location. It was very accessible to both Acadia and Bar Harbor. Checking in and out went smoothly. Communication was great. Overall it was a great experience.
The electric room heaters were a challenge for it was cold during our stay
I must of misinterpreted the review about what was available in the cottage. I came prepared for a DVD player (none provided). I also found no cell service a big disappointment and missed that information in my review of what was offered as access. This was my first disappointment through VRBO. The interior proved true to the pictures available which I base a lot of my decision on. Location worked great for us. .
We agree the location ,in our opinion, is just ideal to explore Acadia and the Island in just a matter of minutes.... , we are lucky that our village is surrounded by Acadia National Park.
... some of the most scenic trails in all of the Park are just a short walk out the front door!. ... We do have cell coverage with AT&T , there is a land line with unlimited calling and great WIFI service to do all of your texting and internet for streaming....
So very sorry you did not find a DVD player we found most of our
guest stream ..... We are always on call for our guest if you had request a DVD player it would be our pleasure to have there in a matter of minutes
Our goal is for all of our guest to have 5 star experience , if you need anything please just ask...
Overall, a nice, clean house.
We liked this house while discovering Acadia State Park. We liked the trail by this house that lead into the park. The landlady stopped by to give us a heater, as it was cold at night. We hadn't asked for one, she thought it would be helpful. It was! She helped with recommendations of some of the trails to hike & bike on. Overall, we had a very nice stay.
another outstanding stay!
This is our second visit and we cannot have been more pleased. The accommodations are wonderful -- perfectly situated in the park and convenient to all activities -- and Peggy goes out of her way to ensure that you have everything you need for a memorable, effortless, and truly fantastic stay. Can't wait for next year!
Very clean, great location
Cottage was very clean, with a lovely kitchen. You could walk to Otter Cliffs, though to get to a good sitting spot was about a mile, but a nice walk and well worth it for morning coffee time. We hiked a lot, kayaked and biked in Acadia, saw red fox, whales, deer and seal while there. (not all from the house of course, but the fox was) The little store was just a quick walk away as well, and had a bit of everything. It was just fun to go in there, and we did most days. We were there during a bit of a heat wave, so if I could change one thing it would have been to have bigger fans or ceiling fans in the bedroom to better move the air. Most days this would not even be an issue. You really are a very short drive to Bar Harbor.
