  • Perfect Rest

    "My wife and I and two teenagers spent a glorious week in this incredible structure. The place is close to 200 years old, but is a remarkable mix of antique splendor and funky modernism. There was something fascinating to look at wherever you stood. I expected that of the harbor, but not the place itself. Clean and modern in every important way, yet historic charm as well. We spent a lot of time on the deck--streaming sun all morning and through the day--and walked to every place you'd want to see in the beautiful town. We ate like kings at the restaurants, but loved cooking in the uber-modern kitchen and eating at the centuries-old table. The local caretaker was all old-Maine, answered all our questions and made everything so easy. It is clear the owners want their visitors to relax and have fun. We'll be back."

  • Perfect location

    "My family and I enjoyed a week at this beautiful cottage by the sea! Southwest Harbor is breathtakingly beautiful, this charming home was w wonderful place to come back to at the end of a day of biking, hiking and swimming. The yard was large enough to set up games and the large front porch a great place to gather (Mosquitos were our only challenge). Bedrooms large and beds very comfortable, bathrooms have all been updated. The only drawback was the furniture in the living room, dining room. Very worn down and not suitable for 6 ft. Tall men. Also the internet service was not dependable. Other than those issues our memories of this vacation house will be treasured."

  • Our Winter Retreat

    "We have enjoyed Paul's cottage for our last seven February vacations. Mt Desert Island in the winter is fantastic! A day cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in Acadia is scenic and beautifully quiet. Returning to the cottage each afternoon and enjoying the fireplace, warm beverages, water views, sunsets and seabirds visible right outside the cottage window is heavenly. Sleeping in the loft bedroom, watching the moon, stars and lighthouse beacons is as romantic as it gets. Paul's cottage has everything you need, Kathy is extremely helpful, and we will keep returning to this amazing location. The pictures show it all except the tranquility of winter. We do recommend Paul's cottage to our friends but only if they promise not to compete for our week!"

    "This was our first trip to Maine, AND our first time using vrbo. I feel incredibly fortunate. The house was perfect - and right on the water. We spent so much time on the porch enjoying the sights and sounds of the harbor. The location is far enough from "all the people" yet close enough to do whatever you want to do. Acadia is about a 15 minute drive, along with Bar Harbor. It was a fantastic location to wind down and get away from the daily routine. The house is fully equipped and we had everything we needed. The owners are fantastic and just an email/call away if you have any questions. Thank you for allowing this home to be available for renters. Highly recommended!"

Frenchboro Travel Tips

Frenchboro Vacation Rentals Offer a Peaceful Getaway

Located in Blue Hill Bay, Frenchboro is the perfect destination for those seeking a peaceful getaway from their everyday lives. One unique aspect of Frenchboro is that it is comprised of several islands. These islands are: Harbor Island, Crow Island, Long Island, Mount Desert Rock, Little Duck Island, Great Duck Island, Black Island, Placentia, the two Green islands, Drum Island, and Pond Island. Each island offers a friendly, small-town atmosphere, and there are several Frenchboro lodging options for you. One perk of choosing Frenchboro vacation rentals is that you will have much more privacy than a hotel, which will make you feel more at home during your trip.

Escape the Bustle

If you are looking to escape the bustle of life and want some privacy during your vacation, then Long island, which is one of the Frenchboro islands, may be a great choice. This town has a modest population but boasts brilliant scenery. This is one of the few historic fishing villages left in Maine, so be sure to plan some time for fishing during your stay with Frenchboro vacation rentals. You might want to bring your own fishing gear along on your vacation to store at your Frenchboro lodging when you aren't out on the water.

Sample the Local Flavor

A main attraction in Frenchboro is an annual Lobster Festival. This festival has been held in August in recent years and is a great opportunity to sample some delicious seafood while mingling with the residents that live near the Frenchboro vacation rentals. You may also want to dine out at Lunt & Lunt Lobster Company during your stay in Frenchboro. Lunt's is known for its seafood options but has limited hours so be sure to call ahead from the Acadia cottages before going there.
