Really comfortable queen sized bed (we used one room), great views, the sun floods the breakfast table, perfectly private, and a great staging area for exploring Acadia National Park’s east and west sides. Bruce is very friendly and had great suggestions for hikes, tide pooling, bird watching, and biking (he’s a former Acadia National Park Ranger – it was like having our own tour guide!). New washer/dryer are nice amenities, and the little kitchen was perfect for our week’s stay. The listing was very helpful and accurate, and the place is clean. We definitely recommend this relaxing, cozy suite! — Meg S. @ HomeAway
My husband and I spent the entire summer of 2011 at Ferncrest on Mount Desert Island and for many reasons truly enjoyed it. If anyone is looking for a quiet location with a beautiful view, it’s found here. Within walking or biking distance of national park land and trails, and located on the quiet side of the island, Ferncrest is ideal. The upstairs windows and downstairs deck look out onto the mountains. A quick five minute ride will take you to the ocean.
The apartment is nicely furnished and the kitchen well equipped. All is kept very clean and neat. The washer and dryer are on the same level as the apartment…a big added convenience. Parking is in front of the house and easily accessed.
Bruce, the owner, is very accommodating and since he’s been both a ranger at Acadia and has lived there for many years, he can give invaluable advice about what to do and where to go.
I highly recommend Ferncrest. — Joan F. @ HomeAway
