Bruce has turned the top floor of his house into a whimsical jewel of an apartment. If you want to own a charming cottage on the wooded quiet side of Mount Desert Island, save yourself a lot of trouble and just rent Bruce’s place. It feels like home. It is thoughtfully decorated with art, books, music, and items that make you smile. It was clean and comfortable. The beds were firm and allowed us to sleep in the absolute silence of the area without the back aches typically caused by beds in hotels and rentals. The location is far from the crowds of tourists and noise of towns and traffic yet perfectly suited for hiking into Acadia or lovely drives around the entire island. We felt like locals rather than tourists. Bruce is a quiet gracious host respectful of privacy yet available with information when needed. We would highly recommend this rental. — Joan B. @ AirBnB
