We will return.

We had a great time at Ferncrest. Our whole Maine trip was exceptional and Bruce’s hospitality really helped make it happen. The apartment was perfect for us. We really enjoyed the cool quietside breeze through the windows. The home and entire MDI island was just gorgeous. – Brad @ AirBnB

Charming and relaxing.

Bruce’s apartment is charming and relaxing, offering guests a sense of home in the midst of all Mount Desert Island has to offer. Bruce has incredible knowledge and resources about the area which will not disappoint. We enjoyed being on the “quiet side”, while still having easy access to the parks, beaches, mountains and more. – Kristy @ AirBnB


Ferncrest was a lovely escape during one of the busiest weeks of the year in Acadia. The upstairs apartment was spotless and the view was amazing. We loved coming back to Bruce’s quiet, peaceful home and yard after hiking every day. The beds are very comfortable and although it was unusually hot, there are window fans and we slept better than at home. Bruce is an outstanding host and we appreciated all the help he gave us in choosing hikes and activities on the island. We cooked all our own meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. Laundry right outside the apartment door was a plus. Ferncrest is a perfect place to stay for those prefer tranquility to having stores and restaurants within walking distance. – Margaret @ AirBnB

Home away from home.

My daughter and I spent ten days at Ferncrest. It was a true “home away from home”. All the rooms were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything you might need for any kind of fancy cooking. There were shelves with books about Maine and Acadia, plus other reading materials, board games, and puzzles. The surroundings of the house were scenic and peaceful. Bruce was an excellent host. He made sure we found his place, and had lots of helpful maps, brochures and advice to share. We recommend this home to any traveler who is interested in staying on the quieter side of Mount Desert Island. – Marlies @ AirBnB

Charming and great location.

The host Bruce was great and gave good recommendations. Great location for Acadia national park. — Jacqueline T. @ HomeAway

Clean, comfortable, and neat. It was very cozy.

We very much enjoyed our stay there. We appreciated the quiet, peaceful setting. Bruce was very helpful in his suggestions about how to best explore Acadia National Park. We would definitely go there again and would recommend Ferncrest to our friends. June W. @ HomeAway

We recommend a stay!

Frencrest is a lovely and serene place to enjoy all on its own or as a jumping off point to explore Acadia NP. Bruce is friendly and respectful. – Kathi @ AirBnB

Very comfortable and clean.

Bruce was a great host. We enjoyed our time in the area and the location allowed us to visit many areas nearby. Candace H. @ HomeAway

Very quiet and peaceful.

This cottage is on the quiet side of a island, which also has a variety of activities and scenery to take in. It had the mountains, ocean and numerous lakes all near by. With Bar Harbour also close enough to visit on a whim. The stars at night are awesome. The accommodations were great. Large enough for 2-3 people with 2 bedrooms, and a small kitchen, so that you can eat I’m if you want. The only ting I wanted more, was a larger refrigerator /freezer space. The refrigerator was dorm sized, and the freezer was very small. It would have been nice to be able to store ice cream or make ice for drinks for the day. If you cannot do steps well this is not the place for you, as the space is up a flight of stairs. It is perfect for a couple or a small family (one child). I very much enjoyed my stay here and Bruce was very helpful if you are not familiar with the area. — Betty P. @ HomeAway

Overall great experience.

Great stay in a nice upstairs apartment on the quiet side of the island right on the edge of the park. Bruce was a nice host and answered any questions we had. Our 2 year old was happy with the toy box full of antique type toys (toys are always better at other people’s houses!). The kitchen was great for us to be able to cook a lot of meals to avoid eating out too often. Overall great experience and we would recommend! – Amanda @ AirBnB
