Just as the first tourists to this area (Rusticators) stayed in private homes while enjoying the beauty of the area, you can enjoy a private bedroom in our home while visiting nearby Acadia National Park. We live on site and welcome the chance to be your guides here. We have two indoor cats, Reba and Dixie, that are free to roam the house, but do not enter the guest room unless invited. We are a smoke free property. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on our grounds.
“Greg and Karen are very experienced super hosts. They are very nice and friendly. The house is very clean. The room is bright and the bed is comfy. We are happy to be able to book the pine room at summer. It has very convenient location and about 30-40 mins drive to the park. Love the breakfast options. Greg invited us to join the bonfire at the backyard and we had good chats. Feel so lucky to have a clear sky and observe the Milky Way there. It is a great memory to us. Would recommend it to our friends. Good luck to Greg and Karen’s western adventure.”
We welcome you to share our little slice of heaven while you embark on an adventure of a lifetime! Whether you are here on vacation, a romantic getaway, or business, you will find all the comforts of home in this cozy Carriage House. This charming newly constructed apartment offers an open living area with plenty of natural light. The comfortable accommodations are great for a couple or small family.
“Where do I begin to describe our perfect stay at Spruce Nest? We loved it! It was the best furnished apartment/condo/etc. we have ever stayed in. The kitchen had every appliance, baking dish or pan, plenty of plates and glasses, and every kind of utensil we needed. And we did lots of cooking and baking. Anything we needed was there. The apartment was amazingly clean too. It was perfect! Oh, speaking of perfect, JC was the perfect host. He was so accommodating, gave us great tips about things to see on the island, let us use his and his wife's bikes (and rack and helmets!), and was just so easy to talk with. We felt like we were visiting family. It was the perfect vacation in Bar Harbor!!”
Our Rusticator Yurt offers all the comforts of a bedroom with the feel of camping out under the stars. Unique only begins to describe the experience. A queen memory foam mattress on a home made bed frame , twinkle lights, heat and electricity. There is a hot water outdoor shower, vanity and top notch composting toilet in the nearby bath house. A hammock is there for relaxing and we have a firepit (wood provided) so you can relax by a fire in the evening.
“Of the multitude of airbnb's I/we have stayed in, Greg and Karen's Yurt has definitely been the most unique! Flawlessly constructed, super clean, and complete with electricity AND comfy bed! Location in relation to MDI/Acadia can't be beat, especially at their price-point. They provide helpful tips and instructions for everything, and plenty of current guidebooks. Best of all...Greg and Karen are just ultimately amazing people. If we didn't have full Acadia schedules to stick to during our brief stay, we easily could have sat and chatted with them for several hours, while drinking their delicious coffee. Reba and Dixie, the cute and friendly house cats always greeted us with meows and nudges. 10/10 would recommend - stay in this yurt! Also, the nice empty field next to/behind their property and very little light pollution create some great star-gazing opportunities!”
