This is a beautiful home located on the quiet side of Bar Harbor. The location was great for exploring this side of the island with plenty of hikes and good access to the carriage roads. Diane is very helpful regarding local attractions off the beaten path. There is a short cut nearby if you want to go over to the shopping area of Bar Harbor. We hope to return again next year.
Response from the owner It was a pleasure having you and hope to see you next year.
“This is a serene and spotless home, which offers all amenities y”
We have vacationed in Bar Harbor 4 other times and stayed in another home, which had a suite built on to the main house. However, it was located on Route 3 (the main road into the town) and the traffic was loud and detracted from our down-time on the property. We are so glad we investigated other options and took a chance on a new rental. Truly, there was nothing which held a candle to this rental property and we were even more impressed when we finally saw it in person. The home is stunning and sparkling clean. It is located on a quiet street and at night, without ambient light, the sky looks like velvet and the stars shine like diamonds. I have never achieved such rest on a vacation in my entire life. I love that it's located right near Crooked Road. So, it's a quick 10 minutes into the town of Bar Harbor or a quick 10 mins. down the road to Echo Lake. Access to either "lung" of MDI is easy. Therefore, it is optimally situated. Diane has an eye for decor and she has tended to every detail to make this a home away from home. The owner is as available as you would like for her to be. She does not impose herself on your time or space, but is warm and friendly, if you care to get to know her. She thoughtfully shared the bounty of her organic vegetable garden with us and was so gracious.She also welcomes feedback about her rental property, as she wants her renters to be as comfortable and happy as possible. Think no more and just book it! We're coming back!
We stayed in Diane's house last week and could not have been more pleased. The location was excellent for exploring acadia and Mt Desert Island. The home is bright, immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and above all, comfortable. We were two couples and we had plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped and Diane has done a superb job of addressing all possible needs, including giving directions for a near by walk to the bay and letting us know that her neighbor sells fresh eggs (delicious!). Don't hesitate to rent this house. We hope to return some day.
Response from the owner Thank you Marilyn, You were such fun and hope to see you again. Make sure to remember my email address or phone number. Diane
“Perfect home for Bar Harbor vacation”
This home was perfect for our weeklong stay in Bar Harbor/Acadia. The home was cozy, clean and had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. It was nice being a little removed from the tourist areas. Even our two teenagers enjoyed the home! After a very activity filled day in the park, it was so nice to come home to such a warm environment. It was decorated beautifully and we couldn't have asked for a better home to rent.
“Great place to stay!”
The house was clean, and very nicely decorated! It was fully stocked and had everything we needed. We had plenty of room so anyone could have quiet time if they needed it! The location was good too. It was easy to find, and a short drive to Bar Harbor and other attractions. My mother, daughter, friend, and I had a great girls week here!
Response from the owner You ladies were on the go all the time and glad you enjoyed yourselves. Thank you for your review.
“Best Vacation Ever.”
Date of Stay: August 2011 Diane's home is honestly as close to perfection as you can get. Our family of 3 were lucky enough to stay during the middle week of august and just returned. Our communication was terrific with Diane and she provided us with the information we needed to feel comfortable, even before we arrived. We couldn't be happier with our choice and could not believe how beautiful and the home was kept so immaculately clean. The property is just so peaceful, lots of beautiful trees and flowers and so easy to access everything. The kitchen is so well-equipped, bathrooms are super-clean (as is the whole home) and the furnishings made us feel like we were visiting a friend, not staying in a rental home. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of dresser or closet space. The full bathroom upstairs is really large and the whole home feels very light and airy from the moment you enter. While the house doesn't sit in downtown Bar Harbor (thank goodness) it is so close to the main roads and is only a very short drive to everything. We took the Island Explorer bus from the stop at the nearby campground and were happy to use that form of transportation as well. The nearby deli in Town Hill had delicious ice cream and the nearby pizzeria had tasty and inexpensive pizza if you don't feel like cooking. We had a terrific stay and can't wait to come back!
“Vacation Home that you will love to stay in!! So warm and welco”
Date of Stay: June 2011 You will not be disappointed in this vacation home! The owner is wonderful to work with. The pictures do not do the home justice. First and foremost, the home was immaculately clean! We really appreciated that!! The outside garden is wonderful! The home is decorated so charmingly with antiques that, while you know you are in a new home, it has such a wonderful warm feeling. For the women, if you like decorating, you will enjoy the owner's use of pictures, and collectibles to create the lovely atmosphere. The location is about 8-10 miles from Bar Harbor which worked great for us. It was a lovely drive and was a great vantage point to visiting many of the other sites outside of Bar Harbor and acadia. The home is on Route 102, one day we continued down 102 to visit all of the other little harbors. The home is equally close to the towns of Trenton and Ellsworth where you can get many good lobster meals and other shopping. We recommend Trenton Bridge for lobster on Route 3. If you get a chance don't miss the opportunity to visit Schoodic Point, a visit you will long remember for it's beautiful scenery. Our family so enjoyed our stay at Deer Cottage, it was a wonderful respite at the end of our busy day! We definitely recommend this home. You will enjoy your stay!!!
Response from the owner Thank you so much and I miss you and your sister. What positive Energy you carry and it shows......
Date of arrival: October 1, 2011 We spent the first week of October with our two small children in this cozy little getaway. The location was very convenient, only about 12 minutes from Bar Harbor, but without all the crowds. The house was very tastefully furnished with antiques and hardwoods with a sea faring theme throughout. The radiant heating was super efficient and kept us very toasty on those brisk, fall evenings. I especially enjoyed stopping in at the local market in town, just down the road. The atmosphere was friendly, neighboorly and not the slightest bit touristy. A real down home feel. One could buy a homemade pie, a bottle of wine, or a box of organic pasta. Diane has done an exceptional job with her home and the accompanying grounds. She was most friendly and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend this rental to any of my friends, and plan on using it again when we are in the area. In fact, of the many visitors we had while enjoying our stay, all of them commented us on our good fortune in lodging
Response from the owner What fun to be able to meet up with local friends while on your vacation/business trip. It was nice seeing your family enjoying themselves.
“Great home for family gathering!”
Date of arrival: August 6, 2011 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully decorated, Cape Cod style home. It was well-equipped and within easy driving times for all the sites on the island. The flower-lined back deck was the perfect spot for our morning coffee and our afternoon wine. The entire home had a cozy feel. We fit into its spaces easily and relaxed instantly. Diane made available all sorts of Bar Harbor guides for us to use. We felt like we had arrived back "home" at the end of each busy day seeing the sites. Hopefully we'll back for another reunion in the near future
Response from the owner Thank you Terry and looking forward for your visit again this year.
“Oh my god!!!”
An absolutely beautiful and thoughtfully decorated, clean and artistic home is what we got. This was our second autumn visit to MDI, and our first time at this property. My sister and I arrived earlier than the check in time, but Diane allowed us to move in early, and spent time answering all of our tourist questions! We spent the week walking the carriage trails, shopping in the small towns around the island (our location gave us perfect access to all places of interest), and we cooked lobsters 3 of the nights. There is no question that this home gave us a vacation that was special, and left us feeling spiritually and physically rested, content, and inspired. Thank you for taking care of everything and more, that one could think to need on vacation in Maine. We will be back next year!
Response from the owner Why thank you.... and yes, I remember the wonderful time your family had here on the Island and the weather was perfect.
