Great Location, Peaceful, Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. With my parents, sister's family, and my family, we had a total of 10 of us.

The location was perfect! Short drive to bar harbor/Acadia National Park. Just enough outside all of the traffic and tourist areas, but close enough to get there within 15-20 minutes.

The house is stocked with everything that you need, and if it is not there, Shawn and Christine will get it there :-) (We were low on TP, and it was delivered later that day)

We hardly saw our children when we were at the house. They always disappeared to the basement to play with all of the games that are there or outside to run around the large grass lot on the ocean.

We enjoyed a few fires at night in the fire pit and there was still wood there when we left.

The only complaint that I have with our trip was the Mosquitos!!! They were terrible. Must be bad quite often since my husband saw a shirt that showed a mosquito as Maine's State bird! They do have bug spray there, but we had even brought our own and ended up purchasing some citronella candles.

A guy I work with camps in that area every year and said he has never had a problem with mosquitos, so maybe it was just bad when we were there.

Overall, it was a great stay and the family wants to plan another trip.

Perfect Maine Rereat

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time with your large family. The pictures do not do it justice. The home sits right on beautiful ocean front with those amazing Maine rocks and tons of frontage. The huge yard was perfect for family games, tag and throwing a football or frisbee around. We love taking the canoes out and even took the kids to Burying island across the cove. They loved it.

I think we saw the most beautiful sunset of our lives on the second day over the water. There was a ton of New England clouds and the sky just lit up with red, purple and pink.

Truly a magical time! We will be back next time we are in Bar Harbor.

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. We traveled to the area with some High School boys for a basketball tournament and we had plenty of space. The boys loved the house and had plenty of things to do. The kitchen is amazing. It had everything we needed to prepare meals. Everyone felt at home. The owners were great to work and helped us quickly to resolve one small problem with the TV. HomeAway has yet to fail. This house was a slam dunk!!!

Awesome Ocean Front Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 people and I would not say it fell any short of the expectations I had. This is a Gorgeous house which opens up to the Ocean bay. People who love nature its the best place to stay for a peaceful getaway. The House has pretty much everything needed for your stay, My kid who is a 2 year old also had a blast in the basement with the toys and fun games. The only thing i would recall is to way to get to this chalet, in the night it is really hard- so google maps helped me a lot to trace the location, it will bring you to the B & B drive but you need to take a narrow left into the woods to find this place this is literally at the edge of the bay.

Other than this, its a perfect place to have a quite getaway

Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

House was very spacious! Plenty of towels! Master bath was great! But the view stole the show. Little hard to find. Well stocked kitchen. I made a wedding cake. Missing a curtain in the master bath. Very nice laundry area too. Plenty of parking.

Well maintained property with great view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this Hancock property for a week mid August of 2016. There were nine in our party, ranging from a four year old to several senior citizens. There were ample baths and comfortable beds for all. The water view from the great room is spectacular. Shawn, the property manager, was quickly responsive to the few needs that we had.

Drawbacks were few, though for some the property may be too far away from the Bar Harbor and the Acadia National Park. Access road to the property is hard to find, especially at night.
