  • Perfect quietside stay!


    Our family of 5 had a lovely stay at Hidden Elm! The property is lovely, was very clean, lots of nice amenities (cookware, soaps, dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, comfy beds, sheets, and towels, etc.). LOVED the location--we enjoyed walking into SW Harbor, and easy driving into Acadia, Bar Harbor, Mount Desert, etc. The primary bedroom is set apart from the other 3 bedrooms which worked for us, and our two older children stayed upstairs. The baby stayed in the sitting room near the primary bedroom. Libby was a wonderful host! The steps are steep and both bathrooms are on the main level, but it all worked out great for our group. Would definitely stay at this house again!!

  • Best equipped ever


    Everything we needed was there! A lot of properties say they have everything, but this one actually delivered. The master bedroom and bathroom were beautiful and luxurious. Wish it was in my house!
