What a wonderful experience we had staying near Acadia National Park at Bruce’s lovely Ferncrest home. The cozy two-bedroom apartment on the second floor was perfect for our small family, and the kitchen setup was just the right size for us to make most of our own meals. Ferncrest is an older home, but Bruce has done a great job remodeling it and furnishing it so that it is comfortable and practical without losing its charm and character. It was the perfect place to come “home” to after long days of gallivanting. This location borders the western side of Acadia National Park and is minutes from several ponds, lovely walks, and Bass Harbor. It is a scenic and convenient 15-minute drive to enter the more popular sections on the east side of the island as well. Bruce is the ideal host, providing great suggestions, advice, and hospitality. He made sure the apartment was well-stocked with all we’d need for our stay: linens, pillows, books, and cooking utensils. Knowing we had a five year-old daughter, he even pulled out several toys and books as well as a “treasure drawer” for her to enjoy. He provided ample maps and guides for us to use while exploring the park, and gladly answered any questions we had. This was our first AirBnB stay, and we couldn’t have asked for a better fit for this trip. Thank you so much, Bruce! We hope to return to Ferncrest one day! — Mary D. @  AirBnB
