Acadia Extended Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending October at Quiet Stables and loved it. Patrick, the owner, was genuinely hospitable. He was always available for questions and really helped us out in a severe weather situation. The house was very comfortable and had everything you need for an extended stay. My wife enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and the dogs looked forward to walks in the pasture checking for deer and turkeys. The TV and WiFi were more than adequate, just not needed with all that was available outdoors. We were able to kayak on a lake only 5 minutes from the house. The garage was handy to store the kayak in. We enjoyed meals on the screened in porch. Quiet Stables (appropriately named) is convenient to all of Acadia and the area was beautiful in autumn. We will definitely look to rent Quiet Stables the next time we come to the area. Also want to say that the local folks we had contact with were all nice and helpful.

Stay at the house was very pleasent. Rooms and bathrooms were neat and clean. Plenty of towels, blankets and the kitchen equiped well. House was fully furnished and well organized. Planty of space inside and outside.

Location of the house was close to Acadia National Park. Also short drive to Bar Harbor ( about 20 min)

I would recommend this house to others to spend time on Mount Desset Island.

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house with 3 couples and had a wonderful time. There was plenty of room, 3 bathrooms was ideal and the open space and kitchen were perfect for dinners and other social time together. The location is very central to all parts of the island. I would highly recommend this house.

Very nice property

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in this comfortable home. Convenient location, room for all family members to spread out in various corners of the house in different combinations. Kitchen for the cooks, breakfast on screen porch, TV in the living room. Quiet setting. Convenient to both sides of the island. Very close to great swimming.

Would recommend.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 nights at this fabulous property and I highly recommend it. Centrally located so each town on the island is only 15 minutes away. But quiet and private so we could retire peacefully, cook a good meal, and enjoy some family time. Beds were all comfortable and the kitchen very well appointed. Patrick was very responsive to questions and very helpful. Definitely would stay here again.

This is a comfortable home, in a lovely private setting.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for 6 women friends for gather and explore the amazing Acadia National Park region and surrounds. Biking and hiking abound. Want to return for kayaking as weather didn't co-operate this time.
