"Clean, well supplied, though not what we would call a cottage. Furnishings are a bit formal. Not a place for the young folk to run wild. Bathroom small, but the washer and dryer were great. Though we were not expecting a grill, we were happy to find a small Weber which we used 2 nights! We would recommend additional outdoor seating(currently 2 chairs), though the mosquitos will drive you in. Location relative to Winter Harbor, Schoodic Pennisula and Grindstone Neck was perfect! We biked and kayaked and ate a very affordable yummy meal at the Pickled Wrinkle. Bought lobsters at Corea Lobsterman's Coop...right off the boat! Looking for Maine not over run with tourists? Head to Winter Harbor."

"This was our first time renting this amazing property, and our first visit to Stonington. It was the most wonderful vacation we have had in a long, long time. We have described it as living in a postcard for a week! We were a group of 7, ranging in age from 15 to 83. It is not easy to find a spot where such a broad age range is happy - but this is it. Every member of our party had a wonderful time - hiking, fishing, collecting shells, reading, watching lobster boats, sailboats and windjammers cruise by the house - just wonderful. The house was well equipped with books and games. The kitchen was big and homey, with lots of pots and pans, dishes - everything we needed to feel comfortable and at home. The views from inside and outside were amazing. I did not step out of the house 1 time the whole week without saying "This is just so gorgeous!". The other area I would be remiss in not mentioning is the privacy at this home. You are on a point, with no other houses in site. It is peaceful, beautiful and private as can be. Definitely gem tucked away by the sea. Wonderful!"

"Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique. Ce cottage est absolument parfait. Le lieu, la décoration, les activités et le design du bâtiment... Tout est très bien agencé. Le parc Acadia est juste à côté et la petite ville de Ellsworth est très sympathique avec de petits magasins. Cet endroit et ce cottage sont à recommandé.
We had a fantastic week. This cottage is absolutely perfect. The location, decor, activities and the building design... Everything is very well arrange. Acadia park is right around the corner and the small town of Ellsworth is very nice with a lot of boutique / small stores. This place and this cottage must be recommended."

"If you are searching for a spectacular and comfortable home with an EXCEPTIONAL view, search no further because you have found it! As the previous reviewer stated, the pictures of this "beautiful, upscale home can't capture the delight of being there" is spot on. This beautiful home has everything you are looking for: a beautiful view that overlooks Southwest Harbor; a gorgeous backyard, deck and screened in porch; a tastefully decorated interior first floor with a gorgeous, fully equipped modern kitchen, hardwood floors and a master bedroom that offers a comfortable bed, wonderful master bath and French doors to the screened in porch. (Just a small bit of advice, check the dryer downstairs if you don't find many dish and bathroom towels. We thought we would have to go and buy some towels but not the case. Housekeeping must have forgotten about the last load of laundry.) It was so tranquil to watch the lobster boats in the morning from bed. It truly doesn't get any better than that. The upstairs is just as beautiful with two large bedrooms and is carpeted. We absolutely loved spending time out on the deck that offered comfortable outdoor furniture and a large heating lamp. Nothing better than enjoying our breakfast and in the evening, appetizers and wine, listening to the water lap over the rocks to the shore. Whatever you are hoping for in a rental home, this home accommodates. Because we were in Acadia at the beginning of Sept, there was a full moon, and the view was amazing! We also had the pleasure of having a nightly evening walkthrough by a Mama deer and her baby and were thrilled when a bald eagle perched right on the backyard rocks to have its morning breakfast! As mentioned, this home is in Southwest Harbor but it was not a far ride to Bar Harbor or the Park. Actually, it gives you an opportunity to see more of the island by having to drive to key viewing spots at the Park. Also, because we visited Acadia in early September, Bar Harbor was not overly crowded, which was great. There is so much to do and see that we will go back to Acadia. The weather was perfect and the house as the review title states, "Simply Perfection"."
