The best cabin ever stayed in

The cabin was great, professionally cleaned and furnished to smallest detail level. It had everything our family of 6 needed. A lot of space to sleep and relax. Location is very good: 15 min to Bar Harbor, 2-5 min to closest trails / beach on the lake we've enjoyed a lot. Every day we had deers passing by and enjoyed the sunset looking at Cadillac mountain.

Buckeyes and Blueberries was a perfect place for 6 of us to stay on the "quiet side" of the island.

It was a short drive to many places we wanted to see and experience: Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Bass Harbor, Southwest Harbor, hiking trails and more. The kitchen was very well appointed. We cooked dinner in every night. It was a short drive to our lunch spots including Bar Harbor and Beal's Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor. We spent a lot of time in the 3-season room especially in the morning and evening. Watching sunrises and the lighting effects of sunsets from there were photo ops. We also enjoyed the deck and used the grill. The "upside down" floor plan is perfect for the location. We own rental property in Florida and we were very impressed with how well-equipped Buckeyes and Blueberries was! Great supply of towels and kitchen equipment. We replaced items of which we used the last. Our only suggestion would be more wine and cocktail glasses.

Perfect home away from home plus - clean as a whistle

Appreciated the closeness to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. Far enough away to avoid the crowds of tourists but close enough to enjoy the views. Top of the line furniture and supplies with plenty of room to spread out. Lucky enough to meet the owners when they brought additional coffee to four old ladies that enjoy their mojo in the morning. A perfect home away from home and we're all pretty fussy! 
 
Best Rental 
Left on Sep 21, 2017 for a stay in Jun 2017 
My family and I have been renting homes for vacation since 2004. We have stayed in different destinations and this home beats every other rental we have stayed in. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and there are instructions that guide you for the heat and the cooling. The views are amazing and the wildlife visit the property frequently. The very best thing about this rental though is that it feels like you are going home at the end of a busy day full of hiking, even though home is so very far away. We can't wait to rent this home again. 
 
Heavenly 
Left on Aug 8, 2017 for a stay in Jul 2017 
This was our second year and if anything it improved! More items were found supplied in the kitchen. This house sleeps 6 and is not pet friendly or set up for very young children, but adults will love the numerous books and sitting areas including 2 huge decks. We are already booked for 2018 as there is so much to do in the area that we have not accomplished yet. 
 
 
The best!

This house is the cream of the crop for rentals. The view from the deck is the mountains across the sound. We are out only once as this is the most well-appointed kitchen I have ever been in. Every item is a luxurious brand from towels to pans to appliances. The air conditioning is top notch. I would suggest you book early. 
 
beautiful, private, completely outfitted, and immaculate property

this property looks just like the many pictures on the website. our family was extremely comfortable in this immaculate home accessed by a private drive. it was very conveniently located to Acadia National Park, restaurants, and shopping. We would love to stay there again!

Love this home! I've never experienced such a well-equipped kitchen in a vacation rental! The views are lovely and the home is very comfortable, clean and decor is well-appointed. Towels and bedding were excellent. Lots of instructions provided by owner - so not at a loss as to how to work the equipment and technology. Sat on the deck each evening and heard the deer wander their way through the woods...sometimes detour through the yard to munch. We would definitely stay here again! 
 
Beautiful house in great central location on MDI 
Left on Nov 2, 2014 for a stay in Aug 2014 
My husband and I stayed at Buckeyes & Blueberries this summer and I must say this was the nicest place we have ever rented. We always look for a house or a condo instead of a hotel because we like having plenty of room, and this home did not disappoint. It is very clean, beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The King bed in the Master Bedroom suite was great and the leather couch and love seat were very inviting. Every room has been updated or recently renovated. The kitchen has plenty of cookware, tableware and pantry staples to easily cook a meal. I just loved the decor; if I were to build my dream home, this place would be it! We thought this rental was in a great central location on the island. Its far enough away from the rush of Bar Harbor but close enough to easily drive into town for a meal. And it is very close to Southwest Harbor where there are many great restaurants. It is secluded in a nice wooded area where deer frequent every day. We liked the fact that you can't see any other houses from the back deck. All in all it was a great home base for exploring the island by car, and for biking or hiking. The manager was also very pleasant and thorough with all the paperwork. 
 
Beautiful Week in Acadia 
Left on Oct 30, 2014 for a stay in Jun 2014 
The house really met our expectations. It was beautiful inside, tons of living space (the three of us did not do it justice). The kitchen was beautifully redone. The bathrooms were great as well - the water was nice and hot. We had a slight issue with the WIFI speed initially, but that got resolved. The satellite TV was great. Also, since you're kind of secluded and in the middle of nature the bugs were a bit of a problem out on the porch. Highly recommended. 
 
Great house, Great location 
Left on Oct 30, 2013 for a stay in Oct 2013 
This was the best rental experience we have had. Everything was as advertised and more. The house is very nice, extremely clean, and has everything you need. The location is perfect for touring MDI. It is an easy drive to all attractions but in a quite tucked away location away from traffic and road noise. The view is nice, deer pass through in the mornings and evenings, great sunrise view every morning. We felt like it it was home away from home and will definitely try to rent this property for any future trips to MDI. 
 
Absolutely Great 
Left on Sep 7, 2013 for a stay in Aug 2013 
I am very sure that my family are not the first one to say "can we stay here permanently?" the moment we walked into Buckeyes and Blueberries. The view overlooking Somes sound is absolutely breath taking. The interior of the house was beautifully decorated with taste and functions in mind. All the rooms have plenty of space and very very clean. My teenagers love the Moose rooms. I myself love just sit in the sun room and soak in the view. We most definitely want to visit Buckeyes and Blueberries again and again. - (Nov 2017 - Previous)
