In a very quiet rural area away from the crowds in Bar Harbor. It is a decent drive to Acadia, while GPS originally told me just over an hour, it ended up being closer to 2 (at least right now due to road work). There are a couple of restaurants in a near by town (Blue Hill) along with a coffee place, a Dunkin Donuts, and a Rite Aid (possibly more, but that is what I noticed). Nate is friendly and lives in an attached apartment so he is around if you need anything. Quiet neighborhood (besides some dog barking) but you can hear every step made in the other apartment (original flooring, which is charming, but very creaky). If Nate has guests in his home, which he happened to have during my visit you are able to hear their conversation (etc) and I'm not sure what he can hear over on his side. The studio is spacious with a large sitting area that looks just as cute it does in the photos. The kitchen is apartment sized with a small fridge and stove/oven. There is no microwave, but there are pots and pans. The shower seems to be attached to the original claw foot tub. It is smaller than standard and has a wrap around shower curtain that kept sticking to is when trying to shower. I think this is important to note if you're a large person the shower isn't ideal. It is also very high and requires you to be physically able to step in (no problem for the average person, but might be difficult under certain circumstances). After the first shower in the place I decided to take down the remable shower head to prevent that and also to keep the water from leaking through the shower curtain which isn't fully lined with plastic. He has some helpful pamphlets, maps, and manus hanging on cork board behind the kitchen table, which was helpful! The wifi was great being that I didn't have service in the area. It was reliable and average speed.
