"My husband and I stayed with our daughter (8-year-old) for a week. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything one could need. It has a lot of charm and a lovely garden in the front. The shops and restaurants are a quick walk away, yet the location is private and quiet. We enjoyed walking the Shore Path every day and the southern entrance is very close. We brought our old golden retriever and it was wonderful to have a park just a block away for him. Acadia National Park is very close and easy to get to. The complimentary blueberry pie is a wonderful treat! We couldn't ask for anything more!"

"Our whole family stayed for a week in this marvelous quiet waterfront home on Mount Desert Island. One of the things I loved about it was the sense that this was a real home to another family that loves the coast of Maine as much as we do. The accommodations were very comfortable, with a variety of sleeping arrangements that made it easy for each member of our family to find a room that worked perfectly. The furnishings were charming -- worthy of this classic Maine summer place. We were preparing for our daughter's Saturday night wedding at a nearby Seal Cove venue, and Heron Pool's central location -- handy to Somesville, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, and Southwest Harbor -- was ideal. Cannot say enough good things about our stay!!!"

"We traveled there with my 1.5yr old son and had a great time. We spent most days exploring different parts of Acadia National Park and the location was perfect for this. It was also nice to be in a quiet and tucked away area from the busy Bar Harbor (lots of cruise ships!). We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the bay and lobster boil at the rental. The kitchen is small but well stocked with anything you could need. We did have a couple minor issues with the cottage after arrival, but the owner was super responsive and gracious. We highly recommend this cottage!"

"We got married at Edgehill this August, and we couldn't have been happier with it as our venue! My husband is from Deer Isle and everyone knew Edgehill well from other events held year over the years, so we liked that historical context. We had about 20 friends from the West Coast stay at Edgehill for the entire week and it was like one big party. My friends loved it so much they want to rent it out themselves next summer.
We hosted 50 people in the barn for a lobster bake rehearsal dinner, then 100 people for the wedding reception. It was a tight squeeze, but it totally worked. We had big wooden farm tables, and had to move a couple to make room for the dance floor. The barn is pretty funky and rustic, but if you bring some handy people with you, you can transform it into a magical place. We used the side barn as a bar/desserts area, and during the reception people spread out all over the porch and lawn. Having the house for the whole week made setting up for the day so much easier (as opposed to renting a venue where you only have it for a couple hours!)
The backyard was a perfect venue for the ceremony, and we had our first look down by the pond. At sunset my husband and I ran down to the beach and got the perfect shot with the Deer Isle bridge in the background.
Absolutely loved Edgehill as our wedding venue. Perfect if you're into the actual rustic vibe, ready to DIY, and just want a big fun week long event."
