"Our second trip here in 3 years. I so wish we could come every year. This cottage is THE best. It was like coming home again. My family which includes daughters aged 20 and 9 love it here. There was so much anticipation before we got here. It is magical driving down the driveway and seeing the bay in front of you. The view is breath taking. We weren't even completely unpacked for the week when they were down on the beach clamming. Close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor that we never minded the drive in (maybe 30 minutes). My husband and oldest went deep sea fishing for a half a day. Poked around Bar Harbor several times. Bar Island, shops, restaurants and in Acadia to Sand Beach and up early one morning to see the sunrise on top of Cadillac. Other than when we went to Acadia we generally planned to spend half of the day exploring and the other at the cottage enjoying the property itself and just regrouping as a family playing board games, trying new recipes (cottage is stocked well with spices and pans and such) and relaxing. Laying in bed one morning and listening to a pair of loons calling to each other over the quiet bay was thrilling as well as seeing a deer with her 4 babies in the morning mist visiting us. Exploring Lamoine State Park just a few minutes away is always a request with fishing, beach exploring and a picnic lunch.
The property owners have made us feel more than welcome and we truly cannot wait to get back. My only regret is that we could not stay longer. You could easily spend two weeks here and fill it up with things to do or just be happy at the cottage and do nothing. We cannot wait to get back again."

"We are a family of 4 (kids of 7 and 10) and our dog Isla. Choosing the right accommodation for our first trip to Bar Harbor was extremely important since we wanted a mix of true Acadia National Park experiences with the convenience to living downtown Bar Harbor; this rental was exactly what we hoped it would be. We had easy access to what we wanted to do and see but were also only a short walk away from the bars, restaurants, sights and shopping of downtown Bar Harbor.
The owners were very responsive to our questions and provided all the amenities we needed. As all the other reviews state, this was a simple, clean and functional apartment.
We were loathed to leave Bar Harbor and will certainly come back to this apartment and recommend it to our friends. Thank you from all our family."

"My wife and I spent a week with two other couples. The house is spacious with plenty of privacy, with common areas nice and open. The new bathroom gives everyone access to their own (except for showering.) Plenty of deck space and lawn in the back, and access to the bay is great.
We biked, hiked, and kayak during our stay, and the house is close enough to Bar Harbor and NP, but far enough away to be away from the tourist hustle and bustle. While kayaking from the house we saw seals, a heron, an eagle, and an osprey (while catching fish!)
The house has a well-stocked kitchen, and is spotless. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer."

"We love staying at Rocko's cottage. It's got everything you need for comfort including air conditioning, comfy beds, cable tv, good size kitchen, etc. It's clean & convenient to downtown but away from the noise. So easy to walk to the village green & use the shuttle service. A lovely park in the other direction. Love staying here. Lisa is available for anything but never intrusive. Highly recommend Rocko's cottage"
