"This cabin is AMAZING! Wonderful location and a cozy spot, wonderful amenities and great hosts with awesome local recommendations. Mount Desert Island is a magical place, and this cabin made it even more magical." - Lauren, May 2022


"We loved our stay at the Poet’s Cabin. Check in was convenient and easy. We were welcomed with cute, local honey & jam. I especially appreciated the high quality hand soaps, provided spices & nice cookware. Not all of our stays have the charming and homey touches like this one does. 30 minutes to downtown Bar Harbor, endless trails nearby! Highly recommend staying at Sean and Carra’s." Samantha, May 2022

"This is such a cute little spot and so conveniently located! Private enough to feel like you are accomplishing that nourishment in nature while still close enough to the road to scoot out and about easily! The details in this cabin are delightful as well. This goes on the favorites list for another visit." - Jacinda, March 2022


"What a beautiful spot! Poets Cabin is a comfortable, quaint spot in the midst of the majestic Acadia National Park. The cabin is fully equipped with all that one needs to have an at home feel. Plus, the wonderful poetry strewn throughout the home teleports you into the serenity of your surrounding. Thank you Carra and Sean. We had a great time." - Monica, March 2022


"Adorable little cabin just outside of Acadia National Park - a fabulous find! The name truly captures the cabin's essence: the location and decor make you want to put pen to paper! The town of Southwest Harbor has many amenities for a winter stay. We were fortunate to have blue skies and sunshine every day, giving us many options for hiking. Sean and Carra are kind and warm hosts; you'll have everything you need to enjoy each moment of your stay!" - Kristen, March 2022

These folks know how to Air BnB! One of my favorite places I’ve stayed in. My boyfriend and I were just looking for a simple off-season/Winter Acadia cabin stay and we got just that. We just came up from Portland for our getaway, and this truly felt like a little home away from home! It was charming, clean, cozy and comfortable (the BED! Oh my gosh. I slept so well), and the small but significant touches made this absolutely perfect for us. This would be perfect for a couple during any season! Highly highly recommend. Thank you, Sean & Carra! We hope to be back during Summer or Fall sometime in the future!"- Hannah, January 2022

"The online representation is good, but the actual cabin is even better! The equipment exceeded our expectations from other Airbnbs by far, the interior is really charming and comfy, and it was super clean. The cabin is surrounded by trees, and there is not a single noise at night. Perfect for star-gazing. Would come back any time." - Joscha, January 2022

"Adorable Cabin. It was immaculate, warm and welcoming. communication with Sean and Carra was above and beyond our expectations. The amenities they provide were perfect. Both mornings we woke up to deer right outside the back door, it felt like you were in the middle of the woods yet minutes to anything you need in town. You definitely get more than what you pay for my husband and I were so lucky to have such a wonderful place to rest up in after hiking and exploring all day!" - Amanda, November 2021
