"Absolutely beautiful place to stay. Very peaceful sitting watching the seals sunbathe. Got to see a dolphin swimming around. Saw a bob cat and some deer. Very clean cabin. Just plain beautiful. Can't wait to go back."

"To us "out of towners" from Pennsylvania this house seemed like the quintessential Maine farm house. Wonderfully updated with all the conveniences and comforts of a cozy home yet still retaining the charm of an earlier time,...beautifully restored wooden floor boards, and maintaining the original architecture were just some of the features that made this farm house so special,.. we loved our stay! Thank you for making us feel so welcome, comfortable and at home. Highly recommended!"

"A clean and cozy cottage with with an amazing view across the waters of Frenchman's Bay to the mountains of Acadia -- and the cruise ships visiting Bar Harbor! We loved the place, despite the fact that certain aspects have gone beyond shabby/chic to just plain shabby. This mid-century cottage needs some sprucing up, not to make it chic or luxurious, but keep it reasonably attractive and in good working order. I think the people who would rent this place would be, like us, interested in savoring the beauties of the place, and would not be using the cottage merely as a place to sleep. It's distance from the noise and crowds is one of its chief features, and so a little more attention to the upkeep of the cottage would guarantee that folks like us would rave about the place and we would make a point of returning.
I checked the box to recommend this cottage for those over 55 but should include the caveat that the lawn is treacherously uneven and that there's quite a drop from the first stair to the lawn. This comes as a surprise especially when one is going out. Otherwise the one-floor layout is ideal."

"This cottage is like new, meticulously clean and the location is amazing. It is situated on a bay teaming with wildlife. Daily we could watch the harbor seals basking in the sun and occasionally bobbing in the water. We saw bald eagles, starfish, horseshoe crabs, to name a few. Having four kayaks and a canoe on the premise was so nice. It allowed us to explore the bay and marine life. We also saw porcupines, a very large black bear and deer very close by. We loved being so close to nature.
Tina Anderson set us up so well. We did not have to worry about packing or grocery shopping for the "extras" in order to prepare a meal. The cottage came stocked with spices, condiments and even all the ingredients to make smores in the outdoor fireplace. We also enjoyed using the outdoor steamers to prepare a delicious meal of steamed clams and mussels.
The drive to Acadia was about 35 minutes and the drive to Schoodic Mountain and Donnell Pond with the sandy beach about 25 minutes.
Overall, this is a wonderful vacation haven. We loved staying here. Should we plan a future trip to Maine, this will be our destination."
