"I stayed here with my boyfriend in June for 9 days. I echo the peace and quiet sentiments. If you traveled one way you had access to the Beech Mountain Trails. The other direction offered a short drive to rent canoes on Long Pond. The location of the house is fantastic. Only 15 minutes to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and less for surrounding villages like Southwest Harbor, Bass Harbor, Northwest Harbor etc. The drive to Bangor was only 45 minutes and we took a couple of road trips just to go exploring. There was no shortage of places to hike, walk, canoe, kayak, climb and you could get right out of the car and touch the ocean on multiple occasions. A photographer's dream.
The house itself is spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked with essentials for cooking, and the living area warm and cozy and open. Perfect for visiting while preparing meals. The bedrooms were perfect with comfortable beds and plenty of space. We even unpacked our suitcases into the dressers provided. It truly felt like home. John and Priscilla were lovely hosts and offered wonderful advice on things to do and traveling times.
We purchased groceries in Southwest Harbor and also went to the Beech Hill Farm Stand where there was a lovely selection of fresh and homemade goods. Perfect for a quick run or for a big shop. People were so friendly and we interacted with many locals.
Overall, this place is fantastic and highly recommended for a laid back wonderful Maine vacation. I couldn't recommend this place more. We will definitely be back!"

"We chose this Blue Hill cottage due to proximity to MDI in the hope that it would be close enough to essential needs but maybe off the beaten path. It was all that. The cottage is close to Blue Hill but very very quiet and secluded. THe home itself is charming and everything you need for your stay is there. Kitchen was very well stocked - even a Lobster pot! Our only complaint was the electric heat did not work and it was quite cold overnight. We managed to warm up with a fire in the beautiful fireplace in the evening and as we were out and about during the day, we didn't mind. The location, amenities and condition of the cottage was perfect we would stay again without hesitation."

"What a beautiful, relaxing place to visit. We enjoyed our week very much. We used the fire pit every evening and visited with the ducks everyday. We watched a loon and bald eagles with the binoculars that were provided. So peaceful and the kids used the kayaks for hours each day. Acadia was just a short drive away and the sights were stunning. Thanks for sharing your cottage!"

"This small suite is perfect for one or two people. The king bed allows for a wonderful night of rest and the fully updated, equipped kitchen is perfect for making meals at 'home.' There is a nice little deck off of the bedroom, allowing for a little place to sit and relax. The suite is extremely clean with no details missed. Additionally, the location is perfect for exploring any part of the island."
