Wonderful house in Seal Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 4 nights in the Haiku house. It was a wonderful experience. Clean and spacious with a kitchen as well stocked an any VRBO home we've stayed in. The neighborhood is quite and within walking distance to the harbor. We thought the real key feature to the home was its location! Just 2min off Park Loop road and 3min to Jordan Pond. Very easy access to the Carriage Roads as well. Jocelyn was a great host. She was attentive and thoughtful, checking up on us to make sure we had all that we needed and available to answer questions as they arose. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the home to anyone!

Clean, modern home ideally located for exploring Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Jocelyn met us and helped us get settled. The layout of the home is a little funky (likely the product of prior renovations). However, it is extremely clean, well lit, with brand-new appliances. The place was spotless. The home is located in the ideal location for day trips to the various locations around the island. 10 minutes to Bar Harbor, 25 minutes to southwest Harbor. Three minutes to Jordan pond.

A lovely 4 days getaway

  • 5 of 5

For a spontaneous trip to the Acadia Nationalpark, we contacted Jocelyn to rent her house. It was a very good the decision! We stayed 3 nights with our children, and would have loved to stay longer. The house is very nice, with room enough for the whole family. The kitchen is great, with all utensils that you need to feel at home. We would definitely consider coming back!

Excellent Location, walking distance to the sea (Seal Harbor), close to great Restaurants, adjacent to the Loop Road and within 5 or 10 Minutes of many main attractions, this cottage was perfect for us with our small family and grandparents in tow. The house was wonderfully clean, well maintained and stocked with all the basics one could possibly need. It is very peacefull and quiet for those not wanting to overnight in the middle of the hustle and bustle that is Bar Harbor. Acadia is a jewel that I keep coming back to and I would definitely stay in Haiku House again. The owner was friendly and very helpful; going out of her way to help us in a jam. A little secret is a sweet little restaurant called The Burning Tree on the way to Bar Harbor. It is a bit pricey but an absolutely one of a kind experience with fantastic food and they were kind enough to prepare special dishes adjusted for a childs taste for our kids. I am still in awe of the entire experience. Can't wait to come back!

Perfect location for our family with kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Haiku House four nights and five days. The house was very nice, clean and had many amenities that we used. The location was great for us as we went over the July 4th holiday. The Bar Harbor area was packed and there were quite a few people in Acadia National Park. It was great to be far enough away from Bar Harbor yet close enough for when we needed groceries, etc. It is maybe a 15 minute drive. Once of the entrances to the park is half a mile away and very convenient. The beach is in walking distance. There is a nice restaurant/bar and a takeout pizza place within walking distance as well (both were good). The house has a nice kitchen with all the things you need for making meals. We made lobster tails and a shrimp pasta type dish one night. There was plenty of space for the five of us. The washer and dryer were in good working order. There were plenty of towels for the bathrooms, etc. If I had to improve one thing, it might be the suggestion of a fan for the upstairs bedroom as it was hot two nights but that is literally it. The house is great. When we go back to Acadia at some point in the future, we will see if the Haiku House available first. Rent this place!

Car: recommended

Quiet, charming village of Seal Harbor adjacent to Acadia National Park with close proximity to Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor. It is a good base to explore Mt Desert Island. Carriage & hiking trails, beach and village are within easy walking distance and accessed without the need of a car from the house. Jordan Pond house is nearby. The free Island explorer shuttle can be taken from the village to explore the area.
