BIRCH HARBOR BEAUTY
CLEAN, QUIET PLACE WITH A VIEW
All of that being said, the location of the place is not ideal. This is nothing against the listing or TurnKey, but something I wish I researched a bit more before booking (which is why I’m including it here - so you won’t have to research as much!). Birch harbor is a town of about 125 people, and there is literally NOTHING around except for a gas station about 10 minutes up the road. We spent most of our time in Bar Harbor, which was about 1 hour 10 minute drive (one way). Again this may not be a negative for some people, but I think you should be comfortable with the fact that you’ll have to drive about an hour to get anywhere. But if you’re looking for a quiet place to relax, are comfortable with driving, and plan on biking (there was a bike trail less than half a mile up the road), then this is a great spot. Even knowing what I do about the area, I would still book again if I were looking for a quiet place to stay with a great view (and a substantially large yard if you are traveling with children). Overall great place and I would definitely recommend!
