Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this charming house in Maine! The location to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park were perfect for our active family. When we were not out exploring local attractions, we all enjoyed the porch and yard to hang out in and take in the beautiful weather and views.

Diana is a wonderful owner to work with because she knows the area so well. Her house is very clean and well stocked with everything you need. The beds are so comfortable too!!!

We can't wait to come back to this house again soon!!!

Great Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

The property was well kept, clean and comfortable. Great location just far enough from the main traffic of Bar Harbor and very close to Acadia. The owner was very accomadating with a late pet addition.

It was nice to return after a day of hiking to hang out as a family.

Very pleased with this property and would highly recommend it!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we pulled into the driveway we fell in love with the house. The house is spacious, warm, in a comfortable neighborhood and close to all the sights. We found the kitchen to be well stocked, the beds comfortable, and the decor lovely. Our favorite parts of the home were being able to play piano, listen to Spanish Guitar music on the Bose sound system, and find new recipes in Diana's many cookbooks. Our family can't recommend Diana and her home enough!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay. The house is conveniently located to both Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The kitchen was one of the most well-stocked I've experienced, which made cooking dinner for six every night a breeze. Diana was very responsive and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.

A very nice vacation home conveniently located near Acadia National Park and the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this location as it was close to the park and walking distance to the beach. The fall colors were gorgeous. The home is well appointed and the shower is amazing - quite a luxury. We enjoyed using the pianos - especially our two musical children. Only draw back was the house was a little musty when we arrived and I have asthma. However it did dissipate when we opened the windows. We enjoyed our weekend there and appreciated the generosity of the hostess - Diana as she shared her pantry with us.
