Eagle Cliff Reviews
The number of bedrooms, the outdoor space for kids to play and the location near to downtown Bar Harbor helped us choose this house. We loved the fact that all the linens, kitchen items, etc. were supplied. It made it so much easier to travel from a distance. The location was gorgeous- the view is just breathtaking and the easy access to activities was great. Working with Mountain Sea Properties was very positive. It was easy to reach Jen and have questions answered. Very thorough info came in the mail. GREAT customer service.

Our week at Eagle Cliff went by WAY too fast. The house was charming, spacious, fantastically equipped, cozy and very comfortable.
The views from almost every window were breathtaking. Enjoying that first cup of coffee on the deck each morning, watching the lobster boats going about their business and listening to the birds call was a slice of heaven and the perfect start to every day. We were enchanted with the wildlife that browsed right outside the kitchen windows. As a family, we enjoyed working on the many jigsaw puzzles that were provided for rainy evenings.
A thoroughly delightful week and one we will long remember and cherish.
A wonderful house, beautiful setting and views, well-equipped kitchen. Close to Bar Harbor but away from the crowds. The size was great for 2 couples and 4 teens. The location was wonderful. We wanted a place where we could have our brothers and their families over for dinner and games- this was ideal! Mountain Sea Properties was very friendly, great service. Everything was just great!
We loved the secluded yet close-in location and easy access to Bar Harbor and Acadia. We felt like we had a private beach and forest being adjacent to the Park. The house was very comfortable and the view was unforgettable. The photos don't do the view justice.
There were lots of things to look at, books, puzzles and games. Mountain Sea Properties was helpful and friendly. The house has character.
There were several factors that went into chosing this house. We wanted a location near Bar Harbor with an ocean view. The house description fit the needs of 4 couples needing sleeping and bathroom accommodations. Finally, the property managers — Jen was just fantastic to communicate with!
The house was perfect. The kitchen, laundry, dining rooms and bedrooms were just great. Working with Mountain Sea Properties was easy, clear and they were accommodating. We all had a wonderful time and hope to have the opportunity to return.
We just spent a week at Eagle Cliff with four generations of our family including our 90-year-old great-grandmother. The house was lovingly appointed and maintained; it was more like visiting a nice relative than staying in a rental house. The welcome note from Mountain Sea, directed at great-grandma, was a brilliant touch.
We had views from our windows of the sunrise, the Porcupine Islands, and visiting cruise ships (which we could not hear). We were near everything and yet we felt secluded.
We cannot say enough about the house or the people who rented it to us. A really classy place, maintained by people who are a real class act.
A beautiful, well maintained, classic home aptly named "Eagle Cliff". It sits on top of a high cliff overlooking the three porcupine islands out in the bay and is just a couple of miles south of Bar Harbor. The house has views from almost every window. We saw several bald eagles and even a juvenile golden eagle while sitting on the lovely stone patio enjoying our morning coffee. Did I mention the deer? They were numerous and close by every day munching on the vegetation.
We enjoyed setting up a badminton court for our kids to use (many other games are available) and the deer seemed to like it too. One of our videos shows 5 on the lawn there at one time!
We rented Eagle Cliff for a week together with the Guest House which is only a few feet away down the driveway. That enabled us to have a total of 10 comfortably, parents, children and grandchildren.
It was a wonderful week that will provide memories for years to come.
The views from this house are spectacular. The website does not do it justice. Compass Cove is really, really nice at low tide; there is plenty of sand and not crowded.
The property is beautiful and very quite and secluded. The house is well appointed and the pine/spruce scented air is wonderful. The reference/information folders were a major plus. This house has a close proximity to Bar Harbor and yet private.
Mountain Sea Properties was helpful, courteous and had excellent information about local points of interest. We had a terrific time and it was a great place to decompress.
The location was perfect for us- close enough to bike easily to town but so incredibly peaceful and away from the bustle of town. Amazing views.
Felt like home when we stayed- elegant and yet unpretentious- with all the convenience and none of the worry. Spectacular view. Comfortable. Had everything we needed for cooking, cleaning, staying in touch, coordinating.
Rental process was so simple. So peaceful, we were sad to leave. A very special place- we will always remember Eagle Cliff. Jen was so helpful, easy and relaxed. She provided lots of advice to make our visit perfect. Excellent confirmation policy.
Thank you for letting us stay in this wonderful house.
We chose this house (with the guest house too) because we needed plenty of room for our family reunion/vacation, and we could not have hoped for a more perfect place for a special family vacation. The views from the patio, the dining room, the living room and basically every room in the house are spectacular! The common areas are superb! The kitchen is spacious and very well-furnished with cookware, dishes, spices, etc. The dining room fit the 11 of us easily. The living room area is spacious and decorated with beautiful and interesting pieces, which I assume the owners collected over the years. The patio is a real delight, and the views are spectacular! (The extra propane tank for the grill was a particularly thoughtful touch.) The park-like grounds are quite nice, and the proximity to hiking trials and the two nearby beaches were a big hit with everyone in our party. I don't think we could have found a nicer accommodation for this reunion.
This trip was a present for my parents' 70th birthday and they both had a wonderful time in large part because the house and guest quarters allowed us all to relax and spend some great time together. The photos don't do justice to either the house, the grounds, or the view.

The views from the patio, the dining room, the living room and basically every room in the house are spectacular! We chose this house (with the guest house too) because we needed plenty of room for a family reunion. Everyone from the youngest (age 9) to the oldest (age 70) loved the house. The common areas are very comfortable and well-furnished. The kitchen was roomy and very well-stocked with cookware, dishes, spices, etc. The dining room fit 11 people easily. The living room area was spacious and decorated with beautiful and interesting pieces (which I assume the owners collected over the years). The patio was a real delight, and we particularly appreciated the very thoughtful inclusion of an extra propane tank for the grill. Also, the grounds were quite nice and the proximity to hiking trials and the two nearby beaches was a big hit with everyone.
The photos don't do justice to the house, the grounds, or the view! The distance from the house to Bar Harbor is fine for a bike ride or a serious runner but not quite close enough for a stroll.
The rental agents (Mountain Sea) were very helpful both in planning the trip and activities and in responding to questions and requests when we were there. All in all, it was a great experience.
How fun was this?
Among other activities, we took a nature tour by boat and spotted Eagle Cliff from the bay, looking even more impressive from that vantage point. A deer peering in our kitchen window was icing on the cake.
Eagle Cliff was the most delightful place we could possibly have stayed for our first visit to Maine. We felt just like we were staying at the home of a friend with every need anticipated. Thank you so much.
The plane from India, then 9 hour drive from Halifax, and we do not regret it now that we are here.
Spectacular and magnificent house is what describes it the most. We are truly blessed and privileged to have spent our time here. Beside the awesome views the house commands, the place itself is so tastefully decorated with each and every convenience thoughtfully planned and placed.
I am sure we'll come here again with our entire family. Looking forward to that day.
