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

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

A wonderful respite.

We returned to Ferncrest for the second time this summer and were as happy and enchanted as ever. The home is in a beautiful, pastoral setting — each morning we woke from our deep sleep to gaze over a misty meadow. By day, our adventures on this lovely island included hikes, bikes and exploration of the villages dotting this lovely island. This cabin — on the island’s quiet side — was a perfect setting for our 2nd vacation on this wondrous island. — Lisa U. @ HomeAway

Great spot for those who want a quiet restful place to rejuvenate, but close to trails, etc., too.

Thank you Bruce. We had a wonderful time staying at Ferncrest. The apt was just the right size. We love all the helpful tips you gave us: GREAT places to eat where the locals gather, GREAT trails to walk for the best views around, GREAT ideas for entertainment if we wanted. You also have a GREAT collection of books, maps, etc about the island. That really helped us find our way around and feel connected. Knowing the “story” helped us connect to the locals, the wildlife, and the island as a whole. We now feel that we have left a piece of ourselves on the “quiet side”. Thanks!!!! — Julia R. @ HomeAway

Ferncrest was a wonderful place to rent.

This is a nice, clean, quiet place to rent. We enjoyed our stay there and the owner is considerate and helpful if you’re coming to this area of Maine for the first time. I would recommend staying here, it’s a good place to relax and close enough to Bar Harbor, etc. to easily get around. — Anonymous @ HomeAway

Peaceful land, clean rooms and wonderful owner.

We just needed a quiet, relaxing vacation with a lot of fresh air, and this place offers everything. Though it’s on the quiet side of the island, an easy 15-30 min drive can get you to all the things the park offers. This home is neat and clean, and the owner Bruce is super nice. If you don’t have time to collect information about the park and what to do before you get there, no worries, Bruce gets all the maps, brochures for you. Not enough? Just ask Bruce. He’s very knowledgeable about the area! He recommended a cruise which he thought would be good for my family, and my family loved it. We also went to a free musical in a boat house which he was going to. Very nice and everyone enjoyed it. It’s my first time trying vacation rental, and I’m glad it’s a very pleasant experience. — Sylvia S. @ HomeAway

Lovely and peaceful home and location.

Bruce was a fantastic and accommodating host and has a wonderful home. For example, not only did he build a fire for us one night, when experiencing above-normal temperatures for Maine, Bruce went out and bought an additional window fan for us to use later in the day. He was also readily available to answer questions and give suggestions as other guests have mentioned. Bruce’s apartment is as described and true to the photographs posted. Bruce has refined taste, but manages to make his apartment feel accessible and extremely comfortable at the same time. His apartment is also very clean and well-maintained. Finally, although we were somewhat concerned about the property owner living downstairs and being home during our stay before we stayed at Bruce’s since we wanted to have lots of peace and quiet while there, that fear dissipated immediately — we actually did not even know when he was home because he was so quiet. He is the ultimate host and we will definitely be back and have already recommended Bruce’s place to others. — Emily S. @ HomeAway

Mount Desert Island oasis.

If you want a place away from touristy Bar Harbor, then this is the place for you. It is close enough to drive the entire island, so you can visit Bar Harbor and then get back to the quietness here at Ferncrest. After a day you will truly call this place home and not want to leave. It is exactly as it is sold online. Bruce is welcoming and helpful and supplies you with various maps and an abundance of information to make your visit that much better. Bruce gave us many ideas of things to do on our visit to take advantage of and we took all his recommendations, and not one of his recommendations let us down. He even gave us directions to help save us time. If we were to come back to Maine, this is definitely where we will stay again. I feel so fortunate to find this oasis that we got to call home. — MK @ HomeAway
