This house was perfect!
We had a family reunion with our 5 grown kids and the house accommodated us so comfortably. The kitchen was fully stocked. There were plenty of towels. The neighborhood is peaceful and you can walk into southwest harbor town. There is a working fireplace, and the porch with the hammock was the icing on the cake! I could go on and on. Definitely a perfect stay!!!
The owner was extremely helpful and responsive. Before our trip, she shared valuable information.
The house was very comfortable for 4 adults and two children. The kitchen was the best stocked vacation home we have ever seen. Likewise, there were plenty linens, books, games, and brochures of local activities.
It was a short walk into town and a short walk to the beach and a short walk to several restaurants. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. In short, it was terrific. Thanks.
Very quiet neighborhood located with easy access to town and the main road. Enjoyed the birds singing in the morning and church bells on the 3s during the day and evening. Well equipped with amenities and charming atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We loved our stay here. The house has so much charm and was quite comfortable for our family of 6. The kitchen was the most well stocked of any VRBO property we’ve ever stayed in and the location was wonderful. So close to the free shuttle and a 5-10 minute walk to town. We would go back in a heartbeat!
A Perfect Vacation Home!
Sometimes you get really really lucky and hit the jackpot on your vacation. Singing Hill is such a jackpot! Three generations of our family (4 if you count the cookout on Fathers Day) lived there for a week and had the most incredible time on the “quiet side” of Mt. Desert Island (Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and all of its wonders are just quick jaunts away). A beautiful, well-maintained 1920’s era home, Singing Hill has a huge wrap around porch with flower boxes, hammock, and comfortable seating, an abundance of books and games for all ages, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace (with wood and kindling) in the cozy living room, a fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, a huge dining room, a beautifully landscaped lawn, and just about everything you need when you “come home.” It is within easy walking distance down the lane of the most incredible causeway with wildlife including huge starfish (a big hit with the kids). The small town of Southwest Harbor has some great restaurants, an amazing library, a fully stocked grocery store, a wonderful bakery, a lobster pier on the harbor (Beal’s), and shops which are all just down the road from Singing Hill. Beautiful music from a church bell tower just down the way marks the passage of the days. The owners couldn’t have been more kind, responsive, and helpful and were the best imaginable hosts from afar. We give them and Singing Hill our heartiest and highest recommendation without any reservation whatsoever. You should go there!

Lovely home for our family!
We had such a nice time at Helen’s house! Our daughter loved that it was so accommodating for her 2.5 year old self with toys and books, and we loved the walk to the water nearby, where we spotted starfish and urchins. The house was also well furnished with cooking essentials, such that we even made popovers! Delightful stay, delightful host.
Stay in the quiet village of Southwest Harbor with it's restaurants, galleries, shops, churches and the Wendell Gilley Museum of bird carving. The Captain's Galley at Beal's Lobster Pier is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner on the Harbor. The busy village of Bar Harbor is 15 miles away with lots to do . The Jordan Pond House in Seal Harbor is a treat for afternoon tea and popovers or a full meal at lunch or dinner. Acadia National Park has beautiful vistas all over Mt. Desert Island. Explore by car or the free Island Explorer bus.
