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
