  • Perfect Family Vacation

    "As a family we have been renting a summer place in Maienfor the last 13 years trying to find "the place" we can keep coming back to. Although we have come close in the past, this is the hands down winner. The property is exactly as described and Tim and Anne are great to work with. Between the early morning sunrise kayaks that I did and the family trips during the day, this place was beautiful. Did I mention the fishing was great ! Thanks for a great vacation and hope to return soon."

  • Beautiful Cottage on a Beautiful Lake

    "We just returned from a fantastic week in Maine. This cottage exceeded our expectations. The home is immaculate and beautifully decorated. It had everything we could possibly need inside. We were amazed at how nice and new everything was. Several times we said we couldn't believe that they had all this nice stuff in a rental home. The view from the kitchen and living room is amazing. You could spend the whole time inside just staring out the window and enjoying the well appointed interior. But you won't, because the chairs outside and the dock beckon you. Then you find yourselves in the kayaks paddling across the pristine lake, listening to the loons and discovering all the little coves the lake has to offer. You'll also watch the eagle swooping into the trees. We were there the end of August so the lake was very quiet since school had just started. This was perfect for us since it was just my husband and me. The cottage is convenient for day trips to the Schoodic Peninsula and Mt Desert Island. We brought our bikes and had fun biking on the carriage paths in Acadia and the loop road in Schoodic. We hiked the nearby Schoodic mountain, brought lobsters home to cook in the giant lobster pot provided, went fishing in the lake and cooked up our catch on the outdoor grill. We highly recommend Two Loons. The owner is very helpful and easy to work with. And we hope to return in the future. We miss the sounds of the loons in the morning and at night, and the crisp clear Maine air."

  • Peace and paradise

    "Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique. Ce cottage est absolument parfait. Le lieu, la décoration, les activités et le design du bâtiment... Tout est très bien agencé. Le parc Acadia est juste à côté et la petite ville de Ellsworth est très sympathique avec de petits magasins. Cet endroit et ce cottage sont à recommandé. We had a fantastic week. This cottage is absolutely perfect. The location, decor, activities and the building design... Everything is very well arrange. Acadia park is right around the corner and the small town of Ellsworth is very nice with a lot of boutique / small stores. This place and this cottage must be recommended."

  • Excellent Family Get-away!

    "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."
