Come explore Acadia National Park and one of the most beautiful islands in Maine. This one bedroom apartment is on the first floor of a fully renovated 150 year old barn. We are conveniently located in the historic town of Somesville, at the very center of Mount Desert Island. We are a 10 to 15 minute drive to Bar Harbor and a 10 minute drive to Southwest Harbor on the other side of the island. You can walk to the Somesville library, a small history museum and Somes Harbor landing. The apartment is attached to our house but has its own entrance and parking. A Queen bed in the separate bedroom and a twin daybed with a trundle bed in the living area can sleep up to 4 guests - perfect for a small family, a couple or a few friends. The daybed doubles as the couch during the day. All linens are included. The kitchen area has all you need to cook your own meals on your trip as well as a washer and dryer. The small bathroom off the bedroom has a shower. A small, sunny outdoor space is a comfortable spot to sit in the sun or have a meal. We do not have a TV, but you can use our Wifi at no charge. The free Island Explorer bus can stop right in front of the house and take you to many locations in the National Park and around the island. We are located on a busy main street with a 25mph speed limit which has some traffic noise during the day but is generally quite quiet at night. We love our home and we hope that this space can be a comfortable retreat from which to explore everything Acadia and Mount Desert Island has to offer.
Just a a few house rules we take very seriously - NO animals, NO SMOKING anywhere on the property and quiet after 10pm.
All guests have access to a small, cozy backyard with chairs, and a nice rocky beach, great for picnics, and swimming.
NO SMOKING anywhere on premises, NO pets, quiet after 10 pm.
Had a great stay at Emily's! My husband and I had plenty of room and (website hidden) Harbor and Acadia were both incredibly accessible. Emily had great suggestions for places to go in Bar Harbor, which we tried and loved. The house was clean and exactly as described.
I stayed with my fiance for a long weekend in late June. We were pleased with the apartment and Emily was helpful during our stay. We liked the location on the quieter side of the island, away from Bar Harbor but still a short 10 min drive to the park. There are also some restaurants nearby in Southwest Harbor and a small harbor/dock you can walk to from the apartment. Although the apartment is on a main road, it didn't bother us while we were sleeping as the bedroom is on the back side of the apartment away from the road (we had the bedroom window closed but it might be louder with the window open, ie July-August). The apartment is a good size for a couple but four people would be a bit tight. The apartment was very clean and well stocked with towels/sheets and kitchen supplies. The only drawback to mention is that the bathroom and shower are small, not anything bad though.
Emily was great to communicate with prior to our stay and during our stay as well. She gave us some nice recommendations of hikes and places to eat. The place was very convenient to all areas of Mt. Desert Island, private, and home-y. We appreciated the books on the area's history and sights. Thanks for the wonderful stay. Recommend and hope to come back to MDI in the future.
Perfect location central in Acadia. Dozens of hikes recommended by Emily made this my favorite National Park Experience with my friends.
We were very happy with our stay at Emily and JB's converted barn. The place was very clean and quaint, as well as in a great location! An ample supply of linens, blankets, towels, and soaps were provided for us, as well as a hair dryer, etc. as described. As added bonuses - the kitchen was well-stocked with some oil and a few spices, and there were great books and magazines on the bookshelf for some Maine-related readings. Specifically, the James Kaiser detailed guide to Acadia was extremely informational and helped us learn and discover things about the park we would not have otherwise known.
The only thing I would mention is that the shower in the bathroom is really quite small. It's about the width of a telephone booth, so there is very little arm room. It wasn't an issue but could be worth mentioning. Other than that, we absolutely loved the place and were happy to call this place home sweet home during our time in Acadia.
The host made us feel quite welcome. They left us the necessaries that one would hope to find in walking into use a cottage for the first time (soap, coffee, appliances, dishes, etc). The facility was as it was described it would be.
All-around, we were pleased and feel we got a good value for money we spent.
Everything about this place was terrific for my friend and me. The accommodation is very comfortable, tastefully decorated, very clean, and very well maintained. We availed ourselves of the guidebooks and DownEast magazines that Emily provided - very helpful!
Emily offered terrific suggestions for hikes (our favorite was one that we wouldn't have come up with on our own) and food. We met her at the beginning of the stay; she was super friendly and helpful.
The only thing that took a bit of getting used to was the traffic, which started at about 6:00 a.m. on the weekdays that we were there. We slept with our windows open, so that probably had an effect. I was able to mostly sleep through it beginning on the second day. There was almost no traffic at night, so that wasn't a concern at all.
A proposito dell'host, Emily
A local resident of Mount Desert Island for 15 years. I love the area we live in and am happy to recommend places to eat or things to do. This is our second year doing AirBnB and I'm excited to help people have a great vacation here.
