"This cottage has everything one could possibly want. We took five members of an adult group home and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Fishing, kayaking, rowing the canoe, swimming, fires in the fire pit and of course s'mores. Those who chose not to get in the water were content sitting on the wonderful dock or the shady porch. It is very well kept with all the amenities one would want plus more. The beach is great with easy access for those with physical disabilities. This cottage worked out so well for our group that I rented it a second week for my family. We live close by but have greatly enjoyed the little get away during such a busy time of the year. Thank you so much for offering this lovely cottage for others to share. It's a great spot and only a short drive to Acadia National Park."

"What a great place! This home is so nice and comfortable, very relaxing and so quiet. It is literally 400 feet from Main Street, but it's on a dead end, so it was quiet any time of day. My favorite things about Wesley House are the fireplace, the big kitchen, lots of sunlight with all the windows and it is so comfortable it really felt like home to us. I also liked the big table in the dining area. We spread out our maps and planned our adventures from this spot. We were pleasantly surprised that it is not far from Bar Harbor at all. Gina is so pleasant to deal with. She is prompt with emails and and any questions or special requests. She is a great resource with suggestions/ideas about places to eat, where to rent bikes, ideas for great walks, hikes and even ideas about what to do on a rainy day. The kitchen is fully stocked, there are lots of towels, firewood, blankets, pillows, hot water, books, games. You name it. Just very comfortable with anything you might need. We just loved Acadia and the small town feel of Southwest Harbor. Great place, and Gina is so nice. Rent Wesley House, you will not be disappointed."

"Our 7-person stay at Folkestone Cottage was everything we could have hoped for. Folkestone is a very private house located quite close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The warm, modern, open house itself has a spacious downstairs and comfortable bedrooms upstairs. The kitchen was great for all kinds of group cooking. Plenty of room. Multiple cars? A two-car garage. The master bedroom downstairs was a delightful place to sleep. Being away from major roads made this a quiet retreat from daytime activity during tourist season. The wifi handled all our seven devices throughout the day as our reunion group shared photos and videos and missives back home. Just sitting on the deck and enjoying chat accompanied by the wind in the trees made us all feel at home. Folkestone Cottage was perfect for our needs. Thank you to the hosts who were also very accommodating after our visit in helping us reclaim property left behind."

"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!!!"
