Sandy and Dan have prepared a beautiful oasis for your visit. Climb the staircase up to tree level and the windows on 3 sides make you feel like you're in a tree house - with all the creature comforts! We spent a delightful week there this summer and had beautiful breezes through the space a couple days. Enjoyed watching the grey rain one day. And had cocktails with our hosts one evening.
This home is away from city lights, so the stargazing was also terrific.
I can't imagine a better place for a get-away.

This was our first trip to Maine, Acadia NP and Mount Desert Island. We could not imagine a more perfect vacation rental. The setting is truly idyllic in so many ways. Nestled in a partially wooded area with views of the bay, the rental unit offers all the comforts of home. Upon entering the front room, a cozy living/kitchen/dining room greets you with windows on three sides. The bedroom and bathroom are beautifully decorated, capturing the the essence of the area. Sandy and Dan are superb hosts and have supplied this rental with information on just about anything you would want to know. We will be back.

“Beautiful place and beautiful view”

I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful place. I really liked that it had a separate bedroom as I am an early riser and my husband is not. It was so bright and sunny with 3 walls of windows in the living room, dining room and kitchen. You have everything you need for a restful stay. The bathroom is lovely and all the finishes are high end. The quiet side of MDI is the perfect place to rest, read, sleep and explore. We would never stay on the Bar Harbor side as there are so many more folks. There is hiking, boat rides, kayaking, paddle boarding and biking to take advantage of and lots of great food near by. Plus there is a grill there so which we used. We are looking forward to coming back. The owners are super nice and friendly. They have some DVD movies to view and cable as well. If you like a place away, separate and quiet this is a place for you. Do as little or as much as you want. You will leave refreshed and renewed!

P.S. Don't have any concern about the spiral staircase. The steps were wide and we didn't have any trouble taking our 3 suitcases up the stairs. The owners were there and offered to let us use their elevator if we wanted to bring up our suitcases that way.
