About Monique Hanson

Joe and Monique met several years ago and began what many would describe as a second life together. Joe is a cabinet maker and a native of Bar Harbor but has lived in Hulls Cove for many years while Monique now works at a locally owned pharmacy and at the MDI hospital.

.Together their personal goals merged on a paralell path,Joe now has the cabinet shop he has alwas wanted and for Monique a small buisness ownership that puts her in contact with a variety of interesting people.

They now very much look forward to the new friends and experiences that sharing their property and the Island's treasures will bring.

Wayfaring Mermaid Suite Near Hulls Cove Beach
average rating of 4.9574466 based on 47 reviews

This is a very comfortable and convenient property with easy access to Acadia NP and Bar Harbor.

  • 4 of 5

The owners put a lot of care and thought into renovating this property as a vacation rental, such as labels on the drawers in the kitchen and a stacked washer/dryer unit in the bathroom. They were very accommodating during our stay, and willing to provide or loan any items that we needed. Moreover, by opening the windows for a cross-breeze, the temperature in the suite was comfortable for sleeping, even during a warm spell. The one drawback is the size of the living room/dining room area; it is quite cozy. If you can't eat outside on the patio due to weather, the only place to eat is a drop-leaf counter in the kitchen with high stools - great for breakfast or lunch, but not for having guests for dinner. Also, there was a coffee maker, but no tea kettle which would be a nice addition.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your time and effort, all comments are welcome and appreciated by us and future guests. Constructive comments help us grow. The tea kettle we guess is a life style choice, we use the microwave but now see the importance of a more traditional approach. There will be one very soon. By designating our rental as a suite as apposed to an apartment we felt size was covered. In addition to that we did our very best to photograph nearly every inch and promote it as a "getaway for two" though we have had many parties of four as well as several casual dinner parties. Formal dinning was not on our radar during the design phase but this does indeed help future guests make an informed decision. Thank you Joe and Monique

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent. It was very convenient to Acadia and Bar Harbor without the crowds! Very quiet and the hosts were very accommodating. The place was very clean and well appointed. We would definitely stay there again!

Perfect in every way for our family of four

  • 5 of 5

It is clear once you enter the suite that this is a labor of love for Monique and Joe. We wanted to spend even more time than we had there.

It is immaculate and has everything needed for a great stay.

We have two teenage daughters who slept on the pullout sofa. They said it was very comfortable. The queen bed in the bedroom was extremely comfy,as well.

Monique and Joe were so kind and helpful w/o being intrusive.

The suite is approximately a mile from Acadia (Hull’s Cove entrance) and 8 mins to Bar Harbor. You will love the convenience!

Our only regret is that we were out of time and unable to use the outdoor private patio and fireplace.

I highly recommend the Wayfairing Mermaid Suite!!!

Owner's Response: It was indeed a labor of love in the creation of our suite. Then we borrowed from the "Golden Rule" with a commitment to provide amenities and service that we would value and expect ourselves. It is a long and busy season and these reviews do more than help future guests, they help us keep one foot in front of the other. Thank you Joe and Monique

A week in Maine at the Wayfaring Mermaid

  • 5 of 5

For a week in the middle of June, my husband and I enjoyed a week in Maine. We stayed at Monique's property and were very happy with it. The space is quite big for two people and really pretty. It's clear Monique and her husband put a lot of work and love into finishing the apartment. The property is located in a nice area, close to the cove and Acadia is quickly accessible. We cooked 3 of the 5 nights we were there and the kitchen was more than adequate, I would recommend bringing/buying your own salt, pepper, olive oil, and vinegar, as none of those are available.

We would stay at Monique's again if we ever make out way back to Bar Harbor.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that your over all experience went well in spite of our shortfall. We believe salt and pepper have legs and were they go is a mystery, perhaps they too need a vacation on occasion. Housekeeping does not do an inventory we do. Given the number of rentals in the area scheduling is tight and timing in our lives frequently allows no more more than minutes between completion and check in. But we try and will gladly supply any needed basics on request. Thank you Joe and Monique

Beautiful, comfortable, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The suite is newly refinished, with exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. It is stocked with everything you would expect along with many extras. It is on a quiet street, but close to the action of Bar Harbor and even closer to the Hull's Cove entrance to Acadia National Park. Monique and Joe are the perfect hosts - friendly and helpful, but respectful of your privacy. The comfortable living room is a great place to unwind at the end of the day and the separate sleeping room is quiet and cozy. We would definitely stay there again.

Cute and convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

The wayfaring mermaid is a wonderful place when staying on Mount Desert Island. Monique and her husband take such great care of their place and have everything needed for an excellent stay. It might be just above their house but you would never know it. Super private but they make themselves available for questions. We had a wonderful fire in their fireplace in the courtyard and it was perfect. The apartment had plenty of space for the 2 of us-much more space than a hotel would have had. The full kitchen was great. We saved a bundle by preparing our own breakfasts and a couple other meals as well. The location was perfect as well. VERY short drive into the Hulls Cove Acadia National Park entrance (I think you could probably walk too), a walk across the road for watching the water, and a short drive into Bar Harbor. Thanks for being wonderful hosts-we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
