Memories in Arcadia
Great property - close to the shop and able to walk to the trails from the unmarked trail at the end of the street. Made best use of the free buses to tour the whole park. Had an awesome
time in Arcadia a real gem of a National Park. Thank you
Cute Otter Cliff home
Great place with location near Otter Cliffs and accessible to hiking/biking trails. Nice corner store a short walk away with nightly lobster pound. Quiet neighborhood, nice albeit small outdoor space. Would definitely stay again!
Decent place, not ideal neighborhood
The house is clean and had ample room for our family of four. The hot water heater runs out of water after two showers and takes an hour or so to get warmed up again.
The adjacent homes on all sides are year round tenants who aren't keen, for the most part, on keeping their properties well maintained. While we had no issues with any of the neighbors we did feel a bit awkward travelling in and out of this neighborhood. The nature of the neighborhood continually reminded us that we are tourists and these are the people that make Mount Desert Island work as a place to visit.
Proximity to hiking was good and an easy drive to towns and restaurants. I would definitely rent this home again but we just weren't prepared to get such a close look at the daily lives of the locals. Next time we will be ready....
Everything was exactly as described. Very clean. Quiet. Perfect location to access all that Mt. Desert Island has to offer. Owner very responsive to any questions. Would definitely stay here again!
Perfect cottage to walk to Blackwood campgrounds where our daughter and family were. So easy to hike Gorham Mountain then on Sand Beach and Thunder Hole-did not need to drive! Also easy drive to the park loop late in the day with no crowds. Nice cottage for making our meals.
Comfortable family vacation
This was a great place for our family of 5 to stay for vacation. Easy access to all Mt Desert Island has to offer. Would recommend.
