  • Cozy Cottage on Western Bay

    "We had such a great time staying in this cozy cottage. The sunroom overlooking the water was my favorite place to sit. We saw seals playing and the fog rolling in at night. At high tide, you can hear the water from the master bedroom which just lulled us to sleep. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals if you want. Although there is not a washer and dryer, the kitchen sink is plenty big to rinse out a few items of clothes. Also, there is no wifi or TV which we thought was a bonus and we didn't miss either one at all! There is a radio so we listened to music. Cell service (Verizon) worked great! You can rent kayaks from a local company that will deliver right to the cabin (or bring your own) so we enjoyed the Western Bay waterfront access from the cabin. The cabin is located on a very quiet road and only 7 miles from the main entrance to Acadia National Park, 9 miles to Bar Harbor, and 10 miles to Ellsworth. We did not have any traffic to deal with. Lots of restaurants nearby and an IGA grocery that has everything else you might need. They even sell spirits and Maine's famous blueberry wine. Thank you Pat and Bob for sharing your cabin and we hope we can get to Maine again soon. There are many more hiking trails that we need to do."

  • 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."

  • Perfect in every way!

    "I cannot say enough good about the cottage or the owners. The cottage is new, bright, stylish, roomy, comfortable....I could live here. It surpassed my expectations. There is internet, satellite TV, washer and dryer, and a well stocked kitchen for cooking. A big bonus to us was that Jim and Louise allowed us to bring our dogs...thank you so much. We look forward to coming back next year and I will definitely refer my friends to stay here."

  • Amazing rental

    "Everything about this house was wonderful. We loved the pictures of the house before we arrived but it was actually even better than in the pictures. The house was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We really enjoyed being on the quiet side of the island and being on the water was perfect. Our kids (ages 3, 6, and 8) loved skipping rocks on the beach and the kayaks were an added benefit. We cooked most of our meals at the house and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. We also appreciated the helpful recommendations left by Ed for restaurants, hiking, etc. We took many hikes on this side of the island and when we did go into Bar Harbor it was an easy drive. Ed was a pleasure to deal with and returned our security deposit within a few days of our return home. I highly recommend this house and without a doubt would choose to stay here again if we return to Maine."
