Nice Place in Quiet Neighborhood
Had a couple of issues that needed to be addressed and the owner was responsive and followed through. She greeted us when we arrived and was very friendly. House is clean and quiet. I wanted some kayaking....my bad on not checking the tides which are 12 feet here and render kayaking only possible during high tide. There are ample kayaks available and gear just have to plan for specific times if you want to get on the water.
Great stay, quieter side of MDI
We had a wonderful time over on the quiet side of MDI. Easy access to Southwest Harbor and Acadia. Easy to get to Bar Harbor but away from the crowds of people. Access to the dock and kayaks was a plus. Greatly enjoyed our stay!
So happy to read your review, as it is always heartwarming to read that our guests enjoyed their stay. We hope you will return to our area in future travels!
goof location, short walk to the water, had fun kayaking.
Cozy, comfort house.
We have group of 6 visiting Acadia National Park in Labor's day. The location is awesome, just 10 minutes drive from a popular lobster restaurant. The living room is really good, and cooking tool set are very good.
A comfortable, relaxing launching pad for Mt. Desert Island activities
The Treehouse is located in a well-maintained, beautiful spot with other vacation cottages in Tremont, ME. It's a short walk down the gravel path to the dock where you'll find an assortment of kayaks and one rowboat, along with paddles, and lots of adult and kid life vests. This isn't waterfront property, but you can see the water from the patio above the rooftops of the other cottages. It's a short drive to a couple of lobster pounds, lots of great restaurants (the food at Sips is delicious!), and a convenient drive to Bar Harbor, Acadia, etc. The house itself is clean, comfortable, and roomy. It was a nice place to come back to to relax after hiking, kayaking, and sightseeing. The gorgeous view of mature, healthy trees through all the large picture windows was very soothing. Having laundry facilities was convenient and my kids appreciated having a television with Netflix on the one rainy day we had during our stay. The appliances could stand to be updated (stove and toaster) and oven mitts would be great (I scorched my hand retrieving a tray from the oven because the dish towel didn't provide adequate coverage). It can also be noisy in the morning as the property management service vans/trucks show up early (anywhere from 6:50 am to 7:30 am), park directly underneath the two bedroom windows, and lots of thumping, banging, scraping, etc starts in the garage/storage area on the first floor of the Treehouse (i.e. directly beneath the living quarters we rented). It was not enough to put us off because we're early risers, but if you plan to sleep in on your vacation it will likely be an issue.
Quiet and comfortable
We enjoyed our stay at this vacation home. There was a little confusion on our part due to the property photos and our belief that we would be right on the water. We stayed at property #3 which is not on the water but we could see the water from the balcony over the other properties. There are LOTS of steps up to the property. Not a problem for us and actually great exercise but I think it should be listed. The property owners were very responsive and actually stopped to say hello. The location is PERFECT! Close enough to Acadia National Park, which we visited daily. Bass Harbor, Bernard and Northwest Harbor all had great locations for dinner or lunch too. We walked each morning before heading out for the day (we took advantage of the 4:30 sunrise. Doesn't rise til 6:30 or so in Texas) and the wonderful cool temperatures.
We would highly recommend this vacation home and visit again!
