"My family and I had so much fun on our recent visit to Bar Harbor that we'd love to move there. Everything was perfect. From the storybook town to Summerside Cottage which is right in the heart of it all. Being right in the village made us feel a part of all the happenings there. As for the house itself, everything is bright and shiny and new. But with original details that made the house unique. The beds are comfy, the towels plush, the living areas well throughout and tastefully decorated. Can't wait to go back!"

"We have stayed at this apartment twice now with our daughter (6 mos first visit and 2.5 yrs second visit) and really liked it. The apartment is neat, nicely furnished, and has all that a small family needs. The owners are very nice and the communication has been good with both trips. It is wonderful to spend the day at Acadia and come back to the convenience of Bar Harbor. If you have a small child I would recommend bringing a child gate (we did), as the stairway up to the apartment is open and quite steep. We will definitely be back in the years to come."

"I don't know where to start. This home, from its setting in the Maine woods, surrounded on three sides by water, to its beautiful furnishings - most imported Italian antiques from Andrea's homeland in Italy - is absolutely amazing. The owners have thought of everything to see to their guests' comfort. The home is beautifully furnished and incredibly clean. Yet the owners have also managed to make it homey and comfortable, as well. You can tell it is their dream home because everything has been so carefully planned and thought-out. The location is great. Ten minutes from Ellsworth and 30 mins to Bar Harbor and Acadia, yet you feel like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle. We were busy sightseeing every day, but honestly I wish we had had more time just to spend a day or two relaxing at this beautiful property. We loved having our coffee in the morning in the dining/living area and watching the rainbows dance around the room from the morning sun shining through the crystal chandelier. We loved finishing our day watching the sunset from the comfortable bench the owners have placed at the edge of the woods looking out over the cove. Perfect place to share a bottle of wine while watching the sun set over the cove. The rooms are all large, open, and light-filled. Huge windows throughout the house let in the sunlight and the woods, with trees swaying and leaves fluttering in the easy sea breeze, and surrounding water, become a part of the living area. My husband and I loved laying in bed at night and looking out at the silhouettes of the woods and the stars sparkling in the night sky. It seems every detail has been taken care of. The owners are wonderful, personable, and accommodating to worth with. I almost feel like I know them now. This is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the pleasure to visit. If you want to experience the best of all worlds, the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor and surrounding towns, exploring Acadia, the inspiring Maine woods, all on the edge of the water, with all the comforts - and more - of home, this is the place you do not want to miss. My only mistake was not booking it for a longer period of time. I cannot wait to return. With many thanks to Andrea and Erika for sharing their dream home with us, I look forward to returning again in the future for a longer stay. Kindest regards to them, and assurances to other vacation seekers that you will absolutely fall in love with everything about this home."

"We love this cabin, and October on the island. We stayed at L'Acadie Cottage in 2009, and this time we were back with our daughter and her family to introduce our 3YO granddaughter to Maine tide pools, lobsters, rocks, hikes, and all the wonderful things about Maine. The cottage, which had been wonderful when just the two of us stayed there, was even more wonderful with all of us staying. The kitchen was perfect for family dinners in the evening, and we really enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. I couldn't recommend this wonderful cottage more -- it's perfect!"
