Testimonials for the Hyewood House
Acadia Mountain are just a 10 minute drive. The hikes to the top are beautiful and the views from the top are amazing! The Milagro coffee shop on Main Street has great coffee, nice bagels and lox. Quiet Side Diner makes a great thin crust pizza. We went to a Farmers Market and got good produce and cheese to add to our meals. Crooked Road is nice to take a drive down. There are some farms and a great book store! Mystery Books!! Sargent Drive in Northwest Harbor has a great view! I love Mount Desert Island!
Here at Hyewood House for a week. We are a group of 6 adults and 1 child. We had a wonderful time. Had many meals in and did trails and sightseeing. We had a mix of weather which was fine for us. Thank you for the use of this home.
We had a great week here. The sights were beautiful. It was great reuniting with family. Loved the suset at Bass Harbor, Cadillac Mountain -beautiful! Food was excellent! Couldn't eat enough lobster. Loved our 1st visit to Maine!
We had a great week on the island. This house was everything we could have hoped for! Thank you Marc and Victoria for your help and providing a beautiful place.
Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique à Hyewood House! Nous avons beaucoup apprécié vos recommandations... Grumpy’s, dans le port de Southwest Harbor, est un incontournable! La nourriture est tout à fait délicieuse, à un prix abordable et la vue sur le port de Southwest Harbor est magnifique, particulièrement le matin. Fiddlers’Green est un restaurant plus cher mais la nourriture est vraiment excellente! Nous avons fait la randonnée que vous nous aviez suggérée à partir de Fernald Cove en passant par Flying Mtn, St. Sauveur Mtn et Valley Peak. Le ciel était dégagé ce jour-là et nous avons pu admirer un des plus beaux panoramas de Mount Desert Island.
Great location for a family to vacation. Been to this area many times and it never gets old. Thanks for sharing your wonderful place.
What a great family trip for me, my husband and our 3 month old. Sand Beach was the toddlers favorite. Kayaking on Echo Lake is a must! For anyone staying here with kids on a rainy day the Children's Museum in Bangor is great! Loved eating at Top of the Hill restaurant! And Grumpy's for breakfast. What a wonderful place!
Loved waking up every morning to the beautiful ocean view. Wonderful people here in Maine. More vacations to come! Thanks for sharing your place.
300th trip to Maine was excellent, like always. And I'm 23. Precipice, whale watching, the Beehive trail, Sand Beach, and kayaking made Acadia number 1 Maine destination all suggested. Sweet trip.
We had a great time in this wonderful house. The location is good and Maine is fantastic!
Had a lovely time in this lovely home. Pretty, well equipped and a good location. Enjoyed chatting with Marc, Annette, and Caeser.

We had a lovely time and only wish we could have stayed longer. The house was very comfortable and we enjoyed savoring our delicious "huge" lobsters on your deck soaking in the beautiful view.
Ceasar and Annette were very charming, warm and welcoming, making our Maine experiencea even more enjoyable and memorable one.
Thank you so much, we would love to come back some time soon, and perhaps stay a little longer next time.

We really love MDI and have stayed in lots of different campgrounds and cottages around the island and the Hyewood House was definitely one of the most comfortable and best locations. It's nice to have bedrooms upstairs and downstairs because our two year old is quite vocal in the EARLY morning. We saw deer in the yard in the mornings and also enjoyed having an outdoor grill.
The kitchen is very well stocked, eqiptment wise, and any other odds and ends we needed we found at the Hospitality Suite, along with some fresh herbs.
Somethings we like do do on MDI are:
-Hiking Beech Mountain, Flying Mountain and Cadillac
-Canoeing at Great Long Pond out to the little island.
-Swimming at Echo Lake
-Walking along the shore Path in Bar Harbor
The Farmers Market (Saturday in Southwest Harbor, Sunday in Bar Harbor and Thursday in Northeast Harbor)
-Walking the Carriage Trails
-Gardens and Thuya House
-Coffee and bread at Little Notch

House was great for large families (9)
Enjoyed hiking and sightseeing.Loved whale watching, a must. Kisma Preserve was great, lots of cool animals to see.
The table with the lazy susan was great for games and meals. Thanks for allowing a tent in the backyard, the kids loved camping out. We saw deer in the backyard twice. The weather was good for most of the trip. Echo Lake beach was fun. Cadillac Mountain a MUST. Walk the bar to Bar Island. Bar Harbor great shopping and sights.
Great stay, hadn't been to Maine in over 30years and made a great reunion for use. Thanks a bunch.

Everything here at the house went great. Grilling outside was a perfect way to end a day. And all 4 of our little boys has a blast being able to chase each other around in the yard (helped to burn up some stored energy from our trip.)
And after many failed attempts in Maine and New Hampshire my wife got her first look at a moose. The first one (19 total) we encountered was less than 20 feet away. We highly recommend Vicky Nolan at the Moose Tours and Photography in Millinocket. It was a tour you couldn't possibly forget.
I don't think our boys will forget watching all of the boats being delivered either. It seemed like everyday dozens of trucks were pulling boats in for the year and the dock eqipment they use at Hinckley is quite impressive to see.
There's so much to see and to do on the quiet side and beyond why do we ever leave?

We had a great time at the Hyewood House -what a great location! What a beautiful house!
I recommend anybody staying here to walk down to the docks and take the ferry to Islesford (Little Cranberry Island.) Visit the museum, gift shops, have lunch on the pier and explore the island.
We also had a great time biking into Acadiafrom here -only 1 mile to Seawall, 2-3 miles to hiking trails and Bass Harbor Light.
Great time kyaking on Great Long Pond too -love the quiet side! -Can't wait to visit next year!
~Donna and Peter 2008
Our first adventure to Maine -we came as guests and left as friends! Everyone was so gracious, the food was fabulous and you will find there's just not enough time for all the adventures.
The Hyewood House was so cozy and very convenient to all the islands. We are already looking forward to our return visit!

This photo was taken in July of 2011 by one of our guests from Louisiana, Rachel H. It is the view of sunset at the Manset dock, just two blocks down across from the Hyewood House.
There is also a great restaurant you can walk to here on Shore Road called Scotty's Dockside Restaurant. Full bar, great eats, and an unpretentious atmosphere. Enjoy the ocean views, then walk home!
