    Magnificent!

    This oceanfront vacation rental was magnificent . . . So warm and inviting. When
    entering the house for the first time, the doors were open to that
    beautiful view. A breathtaking first impression. We especially enjoyed
    feeding and watching all the wildlife that lives around the house.

    Our stay was fantastic!

    Absolutely delighted

    We spent two wonderful weeks in your Hulls Cove home and we want to convey our deepest appreciation for your warm, generous hospitality. We were absolutely delighted by the many comforts of your exceptional house and by your beautiful garden in the shores of the ocean, which is both tranquil and animated by the incredible procession of wild animals throughout the day and night. We had an absolutely magical time there... - Iuliana P, New York

    Incredible memories

    Our trip there was incredible. It far surpassed our very high expectation! There was something for everyone to enjoy, from the “littles” to the big kids as well. We have so many incredible memories embedded in our minds that we will never leave us, and, for that, we are eternally grateful. We are definitely planning another visit to your home next summer! - KA, Massachusetts

Oceansedge??If we could give this beautiful place and gorgeous home 10 Stars, we would!!! 1 week in October wasn’t enough time to enjoy all the delights of this Wonderland! Elegant architectural design, lovely decor, comfy beds and furnishings, spotlessly clean, intriguing history, awesome artwork and the Libraries filled with the most captivating books! A Bibliophile’s Dream come True!!!??Our Host was so kind, friendly and generous! He gave us a fascinating tour of the home and grounds - Thank you so much Mr. D!??There are not enough words to describe how Awesome Oceansedge is! My husband, son and I agree, this is finest place we’ve ever stayed at on Mt. Desert Island or anywhere else in the world! (And we’ve been to Europe to Asia to South America and nothing can top this!!!) We loved Oceansedge and look forward to returning someday.??

If you appreciate truth in advertising you will enjoy your stay at Oceansedge. The pictures and descriptions capture the home perfectly but the in person experience is even better. Every member of our group of 9 enjoyed their time and would say "yes" to a return visit for different reasons. Who would have thought that our almost-adult children could be so captivated by the resident chipmunks, squirrels and ducks? Or, who would have expected the competitive nature of our oldest guests would come alive in our daily bocce "tournaments." This is truly a place that we hope to return to again.

You were great - super responsive and accommodating. The backyard seating areas (both near the house and water) with the fantastic views were by far the most popular.

We were having a sibling and spouse reunion and found JB’s home to be a perfect location and setting. Beautiful home. Beautiful views. JB bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable and first class. He even supplied the deer and bird food for the beautiful creatures who live around the home. If you’d like to dine in the exquisite dining room in the picture but don’t want to cook, JB can connect you to friendly Chef Tim, for a Lobster Bake and home made blueberry pie! Outstanding! We are Homeaway/VRBO fans, and highly recommend Oceansedge.

Oceansedge is a meticulously maintained, beautifully landscaped, traditional home on the shores of Hulls Cove, just minutes from Bar Harbor and the entrance to Acadia National Park. The owner is responsive and will do his best to make your stay enjoyable. The property is extremely private; we did not see any neighbors during our stay. There is a general store and a very nice restaurant (The Chart Room) just up the road, and the entrance to Acadia National Park is less than a mile from the house, with access to the Carriage Roads for hiking and biking. The property met all of our need for a relaxing family vacation and the location simply can’t be beat.

I appreciate all the little things . . . beach towels, bug repellent, fresh flowers, wine, music . . . and more. Above all, to me personally, is the Texas flag (hung in the correct orientation!) That shows that you really care. Not an overabundant trait that you find in these times. I fully intend to be a “regular” client for this place.

We just returned from our trip along the Maine coast, and both my husband and I agree, our stay at the Tide Watch Cabins was lovely and relaxing. Yes, the cozy cabins are small, but it's the view of Frenchman's Bay and the sounds and smell of the ocean that make this place special and very reasonable. We did little food prep while we were there, but it was handy to have a fridge and coffee-maker in the room. We could have asked for any plate, utensils, etc from The Chart Room restaurant next door (which has wonderful seafood, by the way). If you are looking for spacious luxury, this place is not for you - but if you want to enjoy your morning coffee or evening wine looking out at the Atlantic from the porch of your little "down east", knotty-pine cabin - you can't beat this place!!

Although we live in the West, if ever we are fortunate enough to find ourselves near Acadia National Park in Maine again, we will know just where to stay. This Hulls Cove home is perfectly appointed, beautiful, serene, and comfortable in every way. Though our party had come with the intention of seeing the national park, we joked more than once about forgetting our plans for Acadia in favor of remaining in the perfect oceanside setting and beauty of the home. That said, this was the ideal, convenient location for visiting spectacular Acadia and the surrounding area. The owner of the home, meticulous for detail, was beyond gracious, kind, and accommodating. We were delighted to find the flag from our home state flying to greet us upon our arrival. We felt in every way as though we were visiting the home of an old friend in the sense that everything we needed had been taken care of, the door was open, the lights were one, everything was perfectly clean and comfortable, and our favorite books were on the shelves. Each person in our party of eight would highly recommend this home--of many vacation rental homes over the years, our favorite!

My husband, Tom and I have returned from our vacation in wonderful Maine and Chatham on Cape Cod hence this rather tardy e-mail. My family and I thank you for a lovely stay in your very welcoming and comfortable home. The location was perfect; so beautiful and so Maine. All of us from the baby to the grandparents enjoyed your picturesque home and grounds. We also delighted in your interesting e-mails especially the soliloquy on the Asticou Inn. We had a delicious dinner there. Once more, my second guess for your middle name is Barrymore. John Barrymore Dyer flows quite nicely. Four-year-old Elsa was in tears on our last morning she did not want to leave. She loved feeding the animals: The chipmunks actually ate out of her hand. We liked all the animals: They were entertaining. We did many fun activities. We hiked, had fantastic popovers with strawberry jam at the Jordan Pond House,went on a sunset sail on the Margaret Todd, ate fabulous lobsters,had blueberry pancakes at Jordan's on Cottage Street, and played on Sand Beach. My younger son, Tim and I experienced sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. Surprisingly there were about sixty other nutty enthusiasts present. Thank you for sharing your gracious home and for taking such good care of us. We had a marvelous time!

I have to agree with all the other reviewers. Both the house and the owner are wonderful. Everything is as described, if not better. The property is beautiful and convenient to everything on the Island. It was perfect for my family. I will recommend to all my friends.

As far as the property…it is beautiful and we are all so happy. We will spend all our free time on the back terrace. Two rather chubby raccoons have kept us entertained all evening. Plus, your chipmunk met us right away and ate from our hands… too cute. We completely enjoyed our time here and truly appreciate the opportunity to stay in your home! Thank you so much! It is a beautiful home and setting and the "pets" who joined us created memories we will cherish forever!

Everything at the house was in wonderful condition when we arrived. We love the house and the beautiful view. What a nice place to spend a vacation! The pet chipmunk is very entertaining – he has made us feel very welcome! We are looking forward to a wonderful week! The house is absolutely lovely - such a beautiful place to spend some time! There was a brief shower and then double rainbow over the water yesterday evening - what a nice a beautiful welcome! We are enjoying the lovely views, the animals and perusing the book collections. I love your collection of books! As an avid reader and history buff myself, I have enjoyed perusing all the titles and collections. The animals on the property were an unexpected treat. We enjoyed feeding them and watching their antics. By Wednesday, the large chipmunk was eating from everyone's hand. My daughter glimpsed the large deer and the raccoon eating together one evening and really enjoyed that! We really enjoyed hiking in Acadia. The area is lovely and we look forward to returning again sometime in the future! Thank you again - we had a wonderful week.

I just wanted to send you an e-mail to thank you again for a wonderful time in your beautiful home. My family and I normally rent when we go on vacation but your home was by far my favorite place … we cannot wait to go back! … I hope you will still be renting your home because there would be no other place we would want to be.

What a charming house! You have made it very comfortable and very interesting. We’re enjoying your prints, paintings, and object d’art. It goes without saying, your book collections is very inviting. First, I’d like to say how lovely your house is. We’re so lucky to get to spend a whole week here. Thank you for all your hard work. The house is lovely and comfortable . . . My family and I thank you for a lovely stay in your very welcoming and comfortable home. The location was perfect; so beautiful and so Maine. All of us from the baby to the grandparents enjoyed your picturesque home and grounds. We also delighted in your interesting e-mails . . . Four-year-old E was in tears on our last morning she did not want to leave. She loved feeding the animals: The chipmunks actually ate out of her hand. We liked all the animals: They were entertaining. We did many fun activities. We hiked, had fantastic popovers with strawberry jam at the Jordan Pond House, went on a sunset sail on the Margaret Todd, ate fabulous lobsters, had blueberry pancakes at Jordan's on Cottage Street, and played on Sand Beach. My younger son, T and I experienced sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. Surprisingly there were about sixty other nutty enthusiasts present. Thank you for sharing your gracious home and for taking such good care of us. We had a marvelous time.

We have arrived at Hulls Cove and It is everything we had hoped for and so much more. It is enchantingly perfect! It is beautiful and so warm, cozy and inviting. Everything was just as it should be. It’s our second full day at Hulls Cove and already we have fallen in love with it. I know there are many lovely areas around here for us to see but I cannot believe that they are any more beautiful than your Hulls Cove. Your lovely home is now beginning to feel like our home and we are enjoying every aspect of it. Waking up here each morning here is a joy and a blessing. This has been an amazing holiday. Your home has provided such a cozy place for us return every day after our many adventures. All of our friends thought it was so inviting and loved every minute they were there. It was relaxing, peaceful and serene and afforded us many happy hours. It has been a pleasure to work with you and I am so appreciative that your family is willing to share your lovely home with us. We have been gone from Hulls Cove now for a full week and I have to admit that I miss it terribly.

It has been a great pleasure and honor to stay in your home these past two weeks. We had a wonderful time. I am so heartened to know that there are such incredible people in the world like you who care about animals, and take the time to be their caretaker and advocate. I am going to miss the squirrels, red and gray, the birds, the ducks, and most of all the deer. We would like to come back to visit in the summer and/or possibly in the spring. Thank you again. We remain grateful for the opportunity.

Very lovely home in great location right on the water, private yet close to town. We rented this home starting 23-May thru 30-May 2015. Lovely outdoor setting with lots of flowers and beautiful landscaping as well as beautiful, roomy interior. Our party had 6 people and we could have easily accommodated more. The home is a great place to relax as there are many wonderful books available to enjoy in library as well as all modern amenities one could desire. We will certainly consider coming back again in the future!

We rented this home for two weeks at the end of May beginning of June 2015. My only issue is our schedule would not allow us to stay a month. This amazing home is well kept, the owner was very attentive to our special request and needs both prior to and during our stay. The home was close to everything we wanted to enjoy in Bar Harbor but it's location and grounds made us feel like we were "away from it all". We traveled with our married adult children, we had 6 adults one 3 year old and 2 babies in our group. There was plenty of room for everyone. The adults and our 3 year old grand daughter loved watching and feeding the wildlife on the property. We enjoyed the days we spent relaxing at the home just as much as the days we got out and enjoyed the area. If we could spend a month here every year we would! I can sincerely say without hesitation we would rent this home again!

We spent a week in early September. Like another reviewer, we arrived at the time of a full moon, the “super” moon. Beautiful on the Bay! Everything was great. First time in Maine. Have spent many vacations in the Outer Banks. This home far exceeded any that we stayed at in North Carolina. The house was immaculate. Very well equipped with everything needed. The location is great – convenient to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, etc, – but still very private. We especially enjoyed being able to relax in addition to seeing all the sights, eating out (and in). Mr. Dyer was very accommodating. He definitely wanted us to have a great vacation. Would recommend to anyone. I wish we could have stayed longer.

This home is as perfect as one can get, down to plates on the table on our arrival. The items supplied were more than we expected! The owner is gracious and easily accessible. We would recommend to all!
