"My husband and I stayed at Waterlily Cottage for our honeymoon and it was exactly what we hoped for! The location was great, just a few minutes drive from Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor, but far enough away to relax and escape the crowds that come with downtown. We were looking for a quiet place on the water and Waterlily delivered just that! The views were wonderful, we woke up to the smell of salt air and ocean breezes every morning and had coffee on the deck before starting our day. The pool was lovely and large enough to share with the other guests. We were able to rent a kayak, have it delivered and put in right in front of the cottage. The stone beach at low tide was fun to explore and we saw plenty of wildlife right out in the bay. All in all this property was a home run for us. We will absolutely be coming back. LOVED IT!!"

"We loved this well-maintained house. It was perfect for 2 families made up of 4 parents and six "kids" aged 25, 23, 21, 21, 18, and 15! The dining room table was long enough to fit all 10 of us for meals and the kitchen was large enough to handle multiple cooks. The house was well stocked with any dishes or pans we needed and had every spice we wanted. The linens were great and the linen room had more towels than we could ever need. The street was quiet while being just a few blocks from the town shops and restaurants. Parking was very limited (about 1.5 cars could fit) but we had no trouble finding parking in the same block. We want to come back!!!"

"What a great property. Furnished with just about everything you could possibly need for your stay, comfortable, pretty location on the creek, and ideal for exploring this beautiful part of the country. I would definitely recommend it to couples or families. When you finally have enough of the lobster rolls then Vazquez Mexican take-out in nearby Milbridge is a great choice, or if you want to splurge then try Salt Box in Hancock. We really could not have enjoyed our stay more."

Full of character, historic, comfortable home - key location to explore region.
"If you are planning a trip to the Blue Hill peninsula and/or Acadia National Park/Mount Desert Island, I highly recommend that you consider staying at the historic Parker House located just minutes from the quaint town center of Blue Hill. The home is filled with antiques and art and has a very special feel of another era to it - and is quiet, clean, comfortable, and creates an atmosphere of relaxation after days filled with exploration of this scenic region. We felt honored to be able to stay in such an amazing home and staying here really made our trip that much more memorable and special. During previous visits, I have stayed in Bar Harbor. The pace and feeling of the Blue Hill peninsula is different than on Mount Desert Island - less touristy and more laid back (at least in mid-September). We stayed for 3 nights and explored the historic and charming town of Castine, the Blue Hill peninsula, and Deer Isle/Stonington, the Schoodic peninsula (the quieter and less visited part of Acadia National Park, and parts of Acadia NP). One evening, I was thrilled that at 9pm on Sand Beach in Acadia NP, I was able to capture a great photo of the Milky Way and, at 10:30pm, I was at the Parker House dining room table, toasting the occasion by candlelight. If you're looking for a home rental that will add a special ambiance to your trip, consider the Parker House."
