Vacation Rental

Tranquility.

Ferncrest was a lovely escape during one of the busiest weeks of the year in Acadia. The upstairs apartment was spotless and the view was amazing. We loved coming back to Bruce’s quiet, peaceful home and yard after hiking every day. The beds are very comfortable and although it was unusually hot, there are window fans and we slept better than at home. Bruce is an outstanding host and we appreciated all the help he gave us in choosing hikes and activities on the island. We cooked all our own meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. Laundry right outside the apartment door was a plus. Ferncrest is a perfect place to stay for those prefer tranquility to having stores and restaurants within walking distance. – Margaret @ AirBnB

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

We recommend a stay!

Frencrest is a lovely and serene place to enjoy all on its own or as a jumping off point to explore Acadia NP. Bruce is friendly and respectful. – Kathi @ AirBnB

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 classic Maine retreat.

Ferncrest is a lovely and peaceful abode. It is clean, comfortable and offers a classic Maine retreat. The beautiful flowers on the kitchen table was a wonderful added touch. Our family had a great vacation and would love to come back again! – Sara @ AirBnB

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

A haven of calm and silence.

Peace and quiet minutes from Acadia National Park. Terrific location for hiking, biking and kayaking. The house was a haven of calm and silence – A ++ sleep quality. Most relaxing experience for outdoors lovers, who don’t care much for the ice cream parlors a and tourist shops of a Bar Harbor. The house was also well stocked with all cooking utensils, iron, beach towels, etc. Last, Bruce was a wealth of knowledge to recommend activities and really helpful in helping make the best of our visit. We shall return! — Marie-Laure C. @  AirBnB

We hope to come back again!

My fiancé and I had a relaxing and peaceful stay at Ferncrest. It was exactly what we needed. Bruce was such a helpful host. He gave us great pointers about hikes, bike rides, swimming spots and restaurants. His home is a cozy, lovely spot in the paradise that is Acadia. One of the best nights was when Bruce built us a fire and we stargazed (a rare occurrence for New Yorkers ;).  We would highly recommend staying here and we hope to come back again soon! — Emily L. @  AirBnB
