Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Private Home

We built our home in 2004, cut from over 3 acres of woods in the heart of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. It sits 1 mile north of Somes Sound, and is within easy reach of hiking, biking, carriage roads, boat tours, and all of the shopping and restaurants to be found in the several quaint towns on the island.

We created our space to gather and connect with family and friends, and hope that you enjoy it, too.

Our home sleeps seven easily. The master bedroom has a king bed and is located on the main floor. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are on the 2nd floor. The kitchen is fully-appointed to help you create memorable meals; dine inside on our farmhouse table, or eat on the deck. We also maintain a lovely kitchen garden, and welcome guests to pick what they need to round out their meals - it would be a shame for fresh produce to go to waste! After a busy day of adventuring in the park, relax in the deep jacuzzi master tub, or sit by the fire pit and cook S'mores.

Awesome wooded retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was quiet, clean and well tended. All amenities were perfect. A wonderful central location with easy access to the entire island. I would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a peaceful place to call home while on vacation. A perfect place for a family. We had 4 children with us and it accommodated us easily.

Fantastic vacation - great rental in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO's through the years and this was by far the best rental home and experience we have had! We had a total of 7 people staying and there were enough comfortable beds for everyone. Our vacation started off on a bad note when our flight was cancelled then delayed but Kirk kept in touch with us throughout the ordeal and was very supportive of our situation. Once we got to the home, we were pleasantly surprised at how immaculate the entire house was and the beautiful surrounding yard and garden. The kids loved the Playstation PS4 they had in the family room and would have been happy to stay at the house all day and just play. The location was right on - close to Bar Harbor and Acadia park so just a short drive to all the beautiful sights. Kirk was very attentive and checking in with us during our stay to see if we needed anything. This house has set the bar high for any future VRBOs we rent since we all loved it so much! We hope to be able to come back to Maine for another great vacation and this would be our first call to rent! I would highly recommend renting this house to anyone. You would not be disappointed!

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough on how much we enjoyed our stay here. The house was comfortably furnished and had everything we needed. The inside was immaculate and there's plenty of amenity's such as the badminton court, hot tub, gas grill, and fire pit. Some of the best memories we will always have from our stay are the nights we spent around the fire pit laughing and enjoying each other's company. The owner Kirk was a real pleasure to deal with and he was super responsive when it came to any questions we had. Let me tell you my party of eight had a lot of questions they wanted to me to ask and Kirk was more than happy to answer them all. Just a super nice person. The house sits on a very private lot but still is conveniently located to all points of interest. The last thing I will say is the pictures really don't do this home justice so if you're looking for a great place to stay I highly recommend.

Would recommend this house to anyone looking to explore MDI and Acadia. The house is in a great location, is well laid out for any size family, and is stocked with many necessities making the stay even more easy.

A fabulous family home

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the cleanest most well stocked home we've rented. The owners were absolutely wonderful leaving us a welcome basket and great instructions and helping us out when we left something by mistake! We loved the fire pit, hot tub, and badminton! Very Close to hikes of acadia and bar harbour. Felt very much at home.
