"Perfect location with easy access to everything. We left our car at the cottage and walked a couple blocks into town where restaurants, ice cream parlors, pet supply store, gift and clothing stores are. The air-conditioned cottage has everything you need in a house; well-equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with tv/Time Warner cable service, two decent sized bedrooms - one with King-sized bed and other room with full size. And, oh, the bathroom has washer and dryer so you could do your own laundry if needed to be done. Very cozy. The owner was kind enough to let me borrow her stock pot so I could make my own wild blueberry jam (11 half-pint jars in all). We had a 70 lb labradoodle with us. So there was an area to the side of the cottage for him to relieve. I definitely would come back to this cottage if and when we visit Bar(k) Harbor again. Bar Harbor is not the only town we frequented. We traveled around the island by hopping onto Island Explorer bus shuttle (free and pet friendly) and by our car where not accessed by Island Explorer. We also visited the Schoodic Peninsula, a much quieter and remote area of Acadia National Park. We also visited and hiked another remote area that is part of the Acadia National Park - Isle Au Haut. Beautiful island. Coming back to the cottage was a great reprieve from all the activities that the NP provided. Four thumbs up."

Beautiful views, awesome property, nice owners and caretaker
"We loved this place. The house is old and charming, a typical Cape farmhouse on a beautiful lot overlooking the Northern Bay. The owners checked in on us to make sure everything was ok and their Down East native caretaker stopped in a couple of times to say hi. Lovely old barn, meadow, and creek with lots of wildlife to photograph (even Eagles and Bobolinks aka skunk birds!). Great centralized location for exploring Castine, Bucksport, Bar Harbor (Bah Hahbah). We'd like to rent again some day in the future. :) Recommend seeing Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory nearby and the snack bar just down the road."

"A group of us, about 13 artist and photographers, have rented Sealight for several years. The house is spacious, equipped with the latest appliances, lots of areas to sit and chat or simply escape for a little quiet time. Even on a cloudy day, the rooms are light and airy due to the large windows and French doors that overlook the bay. Sealight is perfect vacation getaway with surroundings that energize an artist’s creativity. I highly recommend this rental."

"We had a lovely time at the Blue Rose Cottage. It was more than enough room for our family (two adults, one child, and one small dog). We loved being able to walk to town to catch the island explorer into Acadia, enjoy the shops, or just hang out on the green. The house was clean and the yard is nice with a fire pit in the front yard."
