I wanted to enjoy the spectacular views of Acadia while avoiding the crowds. My desire was to experience the area as a local. It fit the bill beautifully. The grounds of the property are beautiful and the house is uniquely lovely. From a commercial kitchen fit for a serious cook to a very comfortable bed, I felt like I was at home.
Cherie was a wonderful host offering suggestions when asked but respecting her guests privacy. Her personal artistic touches were evident both in the house and on the property. The home is located on the quiet side of the island but has a lot to offer. I enjoyed meeting locals walking their dogs to other visitors like myself. It is a wonderful place to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty all around us. Despite being on the quiet side of the island there are great restaurants and a small but very gourmet grocery store in Southwest Harbor, a small neighboring community. I couldn't have asked for more!
We really appreciated Cherie's house. The environment is peaceful and quiet. The best part for us was the amazing kitchen!
Slate house was the perfect setting for our family vacation in July 2014. I don't know how I forgot to submit a review of this wonderful home. It was better than described. The only down side is the spotty wifi and perhaps the bedroom configuration if you have small kids. The house is big but the two bedrooms are on different floors. Since the downstairs bedroom is pretty far from the master upstairs, it is not suitable for small children. Cheri was a pleasure and even brought us some delicious fresh greens from her garden. If you like to cook, like I do, you will appreciate the gas stove, griddle and BBQ to NO END!! I was able to make pancakes, eggs, bacon for 5 all at the same time...few batches needed. The house had all needed cookware and the tap water is delicious!! Plus, that BBQ grill got so hot so fast that dinner was done in no time at all. Thank goodness because the biting Maine flies would eat you alive if you stayed outside any longer than that in the evenings! The house is well equipped with heavy duty screens so insects were never a problem inside the house. In our down time I read a couple of novels from the many available in the house. Would definitely rent slate house again!
We always try to rent a house that offers certain qualities and Slate House did not disappoint. The right guest for this house is someone who enjoys privacy in a quiet, serene setting, surrounded by nature. Also someone who does not mind the absence of window blinds/shades. The house is set quite-a-ways back from the road (see video link below), and enveloped by trees, so we did not find modesty to be an issue. However, if you want to sleep-in you may want to pack a sleep mask. Also of note - if you are a chef of any caliber you will likely enjoy the restaurant quality kitchen. For example, it was a joy to be able to cook a dozen pancakes at once on the gas griddle.
We found the listing for this property to be fully accurate.
The house was very clean upon arrival. We did not have to spend even a minute getting it in shape for our stay. In some ways it was similar to walking into our home; comfort from the get-go.
Cherie, the owner, was available and ready to help in any way. She is a caring owner, definitely not absentee or uninvolved, as you often find with vacation rentals.
There were only a few things that we would change or have liked to be different in some way. Each of these is a personal preference, so they have not altered our 5-star rating of the property.
a. Stairs to the basement are wood and a bit slippery for our dog (or people with just socks). We tried to block access at the top keep our short-legged Cardigan Corgi from taking a ride.
b. The basement bedroom is very private. This worked well for our 12-year old daughter and her friend. But, if our daughter was alone down there she probably would have been uncomfortable (i.e. scared at night).
c. The bed in the upstairs bedroom was creaky and not too comfy.
Cell & Internet service (no fault of the house or home owner):
Cell phone signals, pretty much anywhere away from Bar Harbor, are spotty. We were able to make calls, but texts and incoming calls were iffy (both Verizon & ATT). The WiFi works, with Internet access provided via DirecTV. This yielded decent download speeds which varied throughout the day. Despite decent speeds, reliability was shaky. Streaming videos probably won’t work. Uploads are limited to well-under 1mbps.

We loved our stay at Cherie's home. It is off the beaten path in the woods. When you stay at the slate house, you feel like you are getting away from it all. The gardens were fantastic, and her decoration in the home was artistic and unique. It was lovely to meet Cherie and get her tips on where to go and what hikes to do. It was only my husband and me, so we only used the first floor. What a grand first floor it is! Also, her home is near our favorite lobster pound, Thurston's! Don't miss this special place!
