  • Just what we needed!

    "Babbling Brook cottage is an amazing little getaway. It's away from the hubbub of Bar Harbor, but still close enough to MDI to be convenient. The views are spectacular and the house well appointed and cozy. We had a fantastic honeymoon there last week! We love Gouldsboro bay!"

  • Secluded Paradise

    "We visited Maine last year for the first time and loved it so much, we had to include it in our travel plans again this year. We decided to stay a little longer and bring our dog this time, and found this lovely gem in Orrington just south of Bangor. We were planning on using this as a home base from which to make day trips all over Maine, but we loved it so much, we only left once to go visit friends we made last year and twice to pick up groceries. On our last night here, we realized we hadn't been out to eat in the area, so we made a trip out for local fare. We also felt obligated...since we were there....to drive around Bangor and see what it was all about. That's a round-about way of saying we were so comfortable and satisfied with the house and its location along the river, that we never really got the itch to leave! Sue and Joe have thought of everything starting with all the fixings for pancakes our first morning there....which we managed to stretch out for our first three mornings! The house is completely round! It's really a ranch with a walk-out lower level. Kitchen, living, dining, and half bath upstairs and a wall of windows you wouldn't believe offering a panoramic view of the Penobscot River! We were mesmerized for hours. The lower level has THREE bedrooms (we only needed the one since it was just the two of us and our little dog) and two full baths AND a laundry room. There are a couple of seating areas up in the yard to watch the River tides roll in and out....or the bald eagles soar by or catch a fish! We got in the habit of sitting on the floating dock with our feet in the water at high tide. You can swim in the river or take out one of their kayaks available for use too. Sue and Joe were very accommodating and informative hosts. They have thought of everything. The kitchen is fully equipped, there are supplies for dogs and children. Soap, cleaning, and laundry supplies too. It has quality furniture and is beautifully and lovingly decorated. We felt right at home."

  • A Gorgeous Property and Fantastic Experience!

    "The Down East Cottage is an absolutely lovely home and exceeded our expectations in every way for our family vacation in Maine...the setting is more breathtaking than the photos capture! The cottage is pristine and is the perfect location to access MDI/Acadia and we also had a fantastic experience right around the corner at Lamoine beach finding starfish, quahog and razor clams, eels, and more...our kids had a blast! We enjoyed making s'mores and sitting by the fire pit, playing family games, listening to records, and watching movies after long, action-packed excursions in Acadia, Bar Harbor and beyond. Other favorites included discovering the Bar Harbor Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, popovers and hiking at Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Lighthouse/Trail, Thurston's Lobster Pound (wow!), shopping in Southwest Harbor, and Echo Lake/Cadillac Mountain adventures. We created countless memories at this lovely home in Maine. Shirley and George are extremely responsive owners, easy to communicate with, and extremely thoughtful as they even had a welcome gift to greet us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience everything Bar Harbor/Acadia has to offer, while simultaneously enjoying the privacy and solace of a secluded, beautiful waterfront property."

  • Truly a gem

    "Our time at your house beginning the week of August 2 was a wonderful experience. We celebrated our 50th anniversary by having our three girls, their husbands, and nine grandchildren ages 24 to 12. It couldn't have been a better place to celebrate. The boys had a great time playing basketball in the out building, especially on the one rainy afternoon that we had. One evening one of the boys played his guitar in the library with a fire and we sang songs and danced. Each morning we had coffee looking at Frenchmans bay. Most days were spent exploring the park. All 17 of us used Atlantic Climbing School and went rock climbing at Otter Cliffs. Your house was a perfect location for our family, and it is truly a treasure."
