Cozy apartment on quite side of MDI
Our stay at Manset Studio was very enjoyable, and October was certainly a nice time of year to visit Mount Desert Island. It is clear that the owners care very much about making sure that their renters have a good experience. They made themselves easy to contact in case we had any issues. The apartment had everything we needed for a week’s stay, and was stocked with thoughtful items like paper towels, toilet paper, soap, etc.
A delightful, cozy and beautifully finished and furnished apartment.
Tom and Mary are gracious hosts and provided us with a wonderful setting for our quiet side of MDI vacation. Their welcome package was typical of the care and concern they have put into this stunning apartment and its renters.
Great vacation spot!
A week away in Downeast Maine
We loved our stay at on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island and Manset Studio was the perfect accommodation for us. It was clean, full of convenient cooking items, and easy to get to. We loved it and hope to visit again in the future.
Wonderful! So glad you enjoyed it🌺
We had booked early, hoping for two+ weeks of early winter walking and relaxation. However, due to unseasonably harsh weather, we were forced to reduce expectations of the former and increase reliance on the latter. Fortunately for us, Manset Studio fit the bill to our complete satisfaction.
The apartment is located over the garage of a family home. However, it feels like staying in the treetops, with a lovely view of trees and fields in one direction and a view of animal activity at the numerous bird feeders in the other.
It is a studio apartment, but it feels quite spacious with a separate sleeping alcove, a desk area perfect for laptop setup, a generous bathroom, living area with futon and chair, and full-size stove and fridge in the open kitchen. In over two weeks we never felt confined.
The interior is entirely pine – floors, walls and ceiling throughout, even in the bathroom. The light shade of the wood adds brightness to the setting. Space utilization is maximized. There are thin slabs of wood that serve as shallow shelves and allow for great storage in the kitchen and bath. And with extra appliances such as a toaster oven and microwave it’s easy to cook here. We prepared many delicious meals from scratch, even including a Thanksgiving menu of crab dip, roasted turkey breast, yams, cranberry orange compote and open-face apple pie. It was the first time in thirty years we were not home for Thanksgiving, but we enjoyed spending it here immensely.
Some of the little touches should be mentioned. Lighting was great both in the living area and the sleeping alcove. This was important because the weather really limited our outdoor time and we read many books when not out walking. The “library” was small but contained interesting and varied options, something for everyone’s taste. The fabrics were beautiful – braided rugs, lovely woven throws, colorful kitchen towels and cozy flannel sheets and duvet. Mattress and pillows were very comfortable.
The owners were very nice and attentive. The driveway was always well sanded and the walk and steps to the private entrance were salted. An extra heating unit was provided for frigid days. A small Thanksgiving basket made us feel very welcome.
If the apartment were not so cozy and comfortable, we would have felt frustrated with a lengthy stay and not much to do. Instead, we treasured every single day.
We would not hesitate to highly recommend Manset Studio.
It was a perfect spot to visit Acadia from.
It was just right for the two of us. Perfectly appointed and very clean. The location was great for a home base. We spent the entire week exploring all parts of Acadia and were never more that 30 minutes away. Easy enough to run into Bar Harbor for dinner and shopping.
Southwest Harbor is gelegen aan de 'stille kant' van Mt. Onbewoond Eiland. Acadia National Park, bekend vervoer trail systeem ligt op 20 minuten afstand. Alle vormen van wandelen, fietsen, kajakken, klimmen en hardlopen kan worden genoten door de bezoekers. Manset Studio is een korte wandeling naar de Manset kust, de Hinckley Boat Company, en goede restaurants. Walvissen kijken, landschappelijke cruises, kajak tours zijn allemaal in de buurt. Een gratis busdienst, The Island Explorer, is beschikbaar via de zomer al op Mount Desert Island.
Er is heerlijk dineren in Southwest Harbor en Bar Harbor evenals grote winkels voor kunst en lokale ambachten. Half oktober heeft het MDI Marathon met de finish in Southwest Harbor. Prachtige bladeren en het 'Oktoberfest' make Fall een leuke tijd om MDI bezoeken. Als sneeuw valt, cross-country skiën is perfect op de geprepareerde wagen paden van Acadia National Park
