"We had an absolutely wonderful stay with Suze and Tod, and would definitely stay with them again if we are in the area. The space was exactly as advertised, and we really appreciated that it was clean and bright. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and appliances, which was great, since we prefer to stay in rather than eat out. Suze and Tod knew just what we wanted in terms of interaction - they were there if we needed them, but they gave us the space we needed to relax on our vacation.
There was one especially wonderful feature to our stay which is Tod and his garden of fresh vegetables! My wife is a vegetarian, and I do not eat much meat. When we arrived Suze gave us a list of what Tod had in the garden and asked us to let them know what we wanted. We chose the lettuce, mixed greens, arugula, chives, mustard greens and tarragon. Tod had meticulously cleaned them and put them by our door. They were wonderful, and we continued to enjoy them and think about Suze and Tod as we continued our trip to other locations, enjoying a wonderful salad here, or a yummy sandwich with fresh greens along the side of the road.
One other thing we appreciated is that they had taken the time to label things and leave directions about how to take care of their property. As guests, we want to take care of their place, and it is much easier when you know what to do.
We highly recommend both Arcadia Meadow and Suze and Tod."

"We headed north from Boston after a crazy holiday season and stayed at this lovely farmhouse cottage on Deer Isle. We didn't know what to expect off season, but as we drove over the DI Bridge, and then over the very picturesque causeway that leads to the island, we were already charmed. The farm house exceeded our expectations; well appointed, tasteful and full of country charm. The surrounding pastures and next door conservation lands were beautiful. From the cottage, the winter views of the ocean were spectacular. We cozied up to the wood stove read books and made our favorite meals in the well stocked kitchen. Though the weather was nippy, each day we headed out on a Nature Heritage Trust walk through the woods, or along the ocean front. Beautiful views everywhere. We celebrated New Year Eve at a wonderful restaurant - the Arbor View Inn. This is reported to be one of the best restaurants in the entire state of Maine, and we'd heartily agree. If you want a true Down East experiences this family cottage is the perfect place to spend a week - or maybe two or three?"

"We stayed there for a week. My 3 years-old started to call here 'Home'.
We made breakfast & dinner everyday and stayed in Acadia NP for the whole day.
When we came back, feel really like 'back home'.
great great experience"

"One word.....WOW! This was our first family vacation to Maine and it was unforgettable! The Cottage on the Bay was heavenly with its breathtaking views of the bay! We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing everyday and enjoying the serenity and beauty of the surroundings. It was fun to watch the curious harbor seals in the bay and see the bald eagles flying overhead as we paddles through the water. We have never experienced such a peaceful, relaxing vacation. The cottage was gorgeous, immaculate, and perfect for our family. It was well decorated and so well stocked with kitchen supplies, pantry staples, cleaning products, condiments, paper products etc. Tina even had yummy blueberry muffins waiting for us upon our arrival as well as fresh picked blueberries and smore's supplies which we promptly enjoyed by the outdoor grill/fireplace. The Cottage by the Bay is a quick drive to the quaint town of Ellsworth, Maine where we enjoyed the Main Street shops, Jordan's snack bar (great burgers, shakes, and ice cream), as well as the scenic Tidal Falls. It was also conveniently located (45 minute drive) to Acadia National Park which is heaven on earth!! We hope to come back to Maine someday and we will definitely stay at the Cottage on the Bay."
