"The pictures of the interior of the Boat House were very accurate. The remodel of the home was tastefully done and up to date. The views of the harbor from the living room were spectacular. We stayed at the end of the season and it was a bit chilly. The heating system was a bit of an issue as the pipes banged at night which interrupted our sleep. We also new it was a working harbor but if you were a light sleeper the fishermen and boats would wake you up early in the morning. We are early risers so that was not an issue. The owners should also let guests know that there is a room attached to the house that harbor/marina folks use. That did startle us when we first heard people in the room. Some other improvements would be to update the linens and towels, connect tv to cable in the bed room , a vacuum cleaner, and to leave instructions on how to use the VCR.
Aside from the few things we mentioned it was a nice place to stay."

"8 members of our family had a wonderful week at Patten Bay house. It is lovely, well furnished, and the owners were very helpful. We all highly recommend it. One small drawback is that cell phone service is spotty, but if you are out in the area most days you can find it elsewhere. Internet is good at the house."

Great value, very very clean, and private....Id love to stay here all year!
"I have stayed in many places in the 25 years that i have been visiting the Acadia region but nothing gives me greater joy than staying at the Corson Cottage. It is lovely, clean and highly efficient. It is located on the quiet side of the island and I love that as it lends itself to privacy, serenity, exploration, and gorgeous views. The downstairs is is bright, open, spacious for two people and I love the indoor fully functional bathroom, also very clean. Upstairs is accessed by a black wrought iron spiral staircase where 2 twin beds make for an inviting place for friends to join us. Parking is easy on the semi circular driveway and last minute groceries can be easily access by the grocery store which is walking distance from the property. If its very early in the season or late (I've been there for both) a small heater in the living room takes that Maine chill out of the air and reminds us why we all love to be in Maine as frequently as we can. If downtown Bar Harbor is for you its a short car ride or if you have forgotten a "must have" and downtown Southwest harbor doesn't fit your needs, Ellsworth is a short 25-30 minute drive. Id love to make this area my home someday and hope I can find a place as nice as Corson Cottage."
