Eddybrook was within easy walking distance to the outskirts of town which works well for those individuals who don't mind a 10-15 minute stroll and back. Home is small but adequate. 1 room with bunk beds would have been better with children than an all adult party (mid-50's to 80). Owners were very accommodating and assisted in making the arrangements as flexible as possible. Small yard with outdoor cooking flexibility and picnic table in a very quiet neighborhood a plus.

Our family just completed a week's vacation on MDI, staying at Eddybrook Cottage. The cottage itself is lovely, comfortable, clean, and in all ways faithful to the owner's description. The owner is very helpful and answered all of our questions as first-time MDI visitors. In addition, Eddybrook's location -- close both to downtown Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park -- makes it an ideal choice for anyone wanting to sample the restaurant/shopping scene, and the various opportunities offered by Acadia. We had a wonderful, wonderful time!

Great location, very clean.

Eddybrook was lovely and the owners were kind and very helpful. The house was clean which is my number one priority. It is simply and tastefully decorated. The location was great. My husband, an avid cyclist, could easily access his bike routes without needing the car and our family walked to Bar Harbor at least once everyday. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets are first rate. Some things that you should know are that the television is very small and so is the stall shower. I would definitely stay here again!

Eddybrook Cottage is in a perfect location to walk to town or to get to Acadia. It's close to everything but is a quiet and relaxing retreat. The friendlly and thoughtful owners provided everything we could need. It was great to be able to bring our small dog with us (with no extra fee.) He loved the screened in porch! Having the laundty on site is great so you don't have to overpack. If you have children, there are games and toys. You don't need to bring lawn chairs or beach towels as they are provided for you to use. TV is very small but cable is good. No air conditioning, but the 3 fans were sufficient on the hot July days. We have rented a few different Bar Harbor homes and this is our favorite..

My family and I just returned from our 1 week stay at Eddybrook Cottage. The cottage was great for our family of 5 and was very clean, charming and nicely decorated. The owners thoughtfully provided everything we needed including treats for our dog and some toys/games for the kids . They were very helpful in providing information regarding activities/restaurants and getting around town. Having the washer and dryer and kitchen/outdoor grill made our stay even more enjoyable. It was a 10 to 15 minute walk into town that was easily managed by all of us and not having to park in town greatly enhanced our stay. Would highly recommend Lulus lobster boat ride, side street cafe, rosalies and pats pizza.... gorham mountain trail manageable for kids - cadillac mountain not so easy! Swimming at sand beach - everything is within a 10-15 minute ride. This is our third trip to Bar harbor and by far our best - staying close to town is well worth the price for a great trip. The only additional thing we brought with us (because we love music) was our cd/ipod player -that is not available in the house, so bring along if you want music (or I suppose you could use the cable music channels as well)Happy to recommend Eddybrook cottage for a great family vacation!
