  • Waterside Home in the Woods

    "My husband and I have been to Maine at least 12 times over the years, and we were lucky enough to stay at this house, along with another couple, on our most recent visit. What a perfect setting! It's tucked into the pine-scented woods, yet footsteps from the rocky coast. The house itself is bright, clean, uncluttered and well equipped. Soft sheets and fluffy towels, as well as all kitchen necessities, are supplied. Highlights of our visit include sitting on the deck, sipping coffee at sunrise and wine at sunset; watching bald eagles and ospreys circle above throughout the day; spotting a seal swimming in the cove at high tide, coming up for air and then going back down again; sitting on a rock at the water's edge at low tide, reading a book and blissing out; buying soft-shell lobsters in Stonington and steamers up the road, cooking them up and feasting at the dining room table, with a backdrop of woods and water out the windows. We were lucky enough to be visiting on a couple of clear, moonless nights. The view of the star-filled sky through the skylight right above our bed (in the upstairs room) was amazing; one night we saw three meteors before we finally fell asleep. Also, the upstairs bathroom has some beautiful, very happy houseplants, and the shower is wonderful--roomy, with big windows (don't worry, no one can see inside). Be sure to drive slowly on the unpaved road leading to the house. On our second day, a neighbor called because she feared we were exceeding the 10 mph speed limit. Also, the wi-fi is so slow that we called in "no-fi" and cell reception is only slightly better. But that's okay, as long as you realize you're here to relax and unplug, not to work remotely. There's satellite TV, but it had few offerings and was difficult to figure out (maybe that's just us?). No premium channels, difficult to even find any national news. But there are plenty of excellent books on the shelves, board games to play, naps to take... The only thing that spoiled our tranquility, I'm sorry to say, were the neighborhood dogs. They barked pretty consistently and their voices echoed from around 5:30 a.m. to late at night. We tried to tune them out, but... I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a wicked good time in Maine!"

  • Seniors Paradise

    "Two senior couples, lifelong friends, spent a relaxing, food and wine friendly week in the most beautiful place you can imagine. The cottage is beautiful, well maintained and well equipped, but the big draw is the location and scenery. All the photos on the web page are completely accurate, but really don't do justice to the peaceful solitude the location offers. Couldn't have been better for some older folks who just wanted to relax and see the sights, but riding the motorcycle to some great scenic spots was fun as well. Wish it weren't so far away for us."

  • We hope to return!

    "We are so very pleased with the stay in Northeast Harbor just at the outskirts of Acadia National Park. The unit was very clean on arrival, more than I have seen in other holiday rental apartments and houses, which both added to our level of comfort throughout the stay and attests to the care the owner puts into the property. When there were small issues, such as running out of gas for the grill, the owner was there to replace the gas within minutes. This to me is the great benefit of renting from someone on site--it is an extra buffer to insure things go well during your too-short holiday time. The beds were comfortable and showers were never short on hot water. The kitchen was perfect for making meals for the 7 of us (two small families). The proximity to the back door of Acadia both gets you to the park easily and also keeps you away from the busier front entrance on the Bar Harbor side of the park. Northeast Harbor provides all the basics you need for a good stay, and you are about a 10-15 mile ride from larger grocery stores. There is an elementary school across the street with a playground, baseball and soccer fields, great for running around at the end of the day of you have kids and with very little traffic at night, again perfect to enjoy the peace and quiet of the area yet close to so many activities. It could not have been a more pleasant stay. We look forward to coming back!"

  • comfy and spacious

    "We are enjoying our stay in this comfortable cottage. The view is great. Bass Harbor is quiet and low key and still allows you easy access to Acadia National Park, good restaurants and shopping. We appreciated the opportunity to stay in this well maintained cottage with our well traveled little dog. Enjoyed all the conveniences provided, the private parking and the wonderful deck."
