Fall Maine Vacation

Had spent 2 summers in Mount Desert Island 40 years ago and wanted to carry my family back there. Loved the location and the layout of the house. Convenient to everything. Well equipped kitchen for the times we didn’t go out. The house was very clean and I recommend it.

I’m just back from a wonderful week at Joy Ride, with my dog. Felt like staying in a home, not a rental. Very comfy, great selection of books, and everything you could need in the kitchen. Loved that I could pop on the heating for a couple of hours in the evenings. Great location.

Lovely Home!

Lovely, well organized home set in a quiet neighborhood a short walk away from the center of Northeast Harbor. We brought our dog and loved the proximity to nearby hiking trails, the harbor, and shops. Would highly recommend.

Loved it

We loved the location and the setting. The kitchen had everything we needed and was well organized. The bedrooms were lovely, the deck was great, and everything was thoughtfully arranged. We spent two weeks at Joy Ride and enjoyed every minute of it! August 2020.

Charming house and well cared for! Super clean! Private enough, with very nice neighbors. We’d come back in ANY season! The owners have clearly invested much thought, time and money. Definitely a place you look forward to coming “home” to after a long day of exploring! 5 stars plus!

Nice place to stay


House always clean and very comfortable, noticed a few upgrades this year to decor. Has everything we need and great location for access to all points of interest on the island. Can walk to get groceries as needed.

Work & Vacation

I've been coming to Mount Desert Island for nearly 15 years...every single year...and have always stayed in private rental houses. This was definitely one of my most favorite places to stay! The house had plenty of space and sits in a quiet neighborhood that's walking distance from the stores and restaurants in Northeast Harbor. The house had everything I needed, excellent Internet access, and renting through The Knowles Company made me feel like a VIP visitor with my welcome goodies. In addition to this, any time I had a question for both the owners of the house and for the rental company, I always received a very speedy reply. I loved feeling like I had instant support just an email or phone call away. Since I stayed for three weeks by myself with my dogs, it gave me great comfort knowing that somebody was there if anything urgent were to come up. Thank goodness my visit went flawlessly, but the attention to details by both owners and The Knowles Company did not go unnoticed!

We loved our stay at NE Harbor and Joy Ride House. The house was perfect for us and our 17 yo and 23 yo. The hiking was absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend and would love to return.
