"This was our first visit to this part of Maine, and we fell in love with the whole Mount Desert Island area but especially with Acadia. We enjoyed the view from Cadillac Mountain, but especially loved getting up close and personal with the ocean, at Thunder Hole and at the tide pools at Wonderland. We went on an awesome whale-watching tour out of Bar Harbor and enjoyed walking around, soaking up the touristy atmosphere of the town. We also made a trip to Fort Knox and the Penobscot Observatory, both of which were impressive.
Since we were only in the area for 3 days, we spent most of our time out and about, but what time we did have at the house was great - it had everything we needed except drinking water, which was easily remedied. The property is beautiful and there isn't a neighbor in sight, which was nice. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any wildlife around the house, just a woodpecker and other birds. There's an extensive collection of books of all sorts in the front hall for your reading pleasure, along with games and a few toys. The house was a comfortable temperature for the most part; the fans came in handy for making the bedrooms comfortable for sleeping. The new refrigerator is freaking awesome, and it was so handy to have a washer and dryer on site. We also really appreciated having a cooler and some already frozen "blue ice" we could borrow.
On the downside, the downstairs shower didn't have much water pressure (I didn't try the upstairs one), and the water tends to smell a bit . . . cottage-y . . . but no big deal. It was a bit inconvenient not to have cell phone service, but the homeowners have made sure there is a landline available. Wi-fi wassn't working great for us - sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and sometimes not at all. Same with Netflix. Nothing that was a deal breaker, and we'd come back in a heartbeat to enjoy this taste of Maine country living and to be so conveniently located by Bar Harbor and Acadia."

"This beautiful cottage was exactly what we were hoping for on our first trip to Maine. Nestled on a quiet cove, with no one around you can expect complete privacy. We enjoyed peaceful evenings on the porch watching the stunning sunsets over the water. While the porch was our favorite spot, the inside of the cottage is cozy and well-furnished with everything you may need during your stay. We chose to prepare and eat most of our meals in since there was easy access to great local seafood and fresh produce.
We loved this location because it gave us quick access to the entire Acadia region. We spent our days exploring and falling in love with Maine and used the cottage as our late afternoon/evening spot to recharge. There is so much to see and do in this area that a week just isn't enough!
We have all ready recommended this property to several of our friends and will plan to stay here again when we return to the area. The owner is great help and a gracious hostess. She gave us many tips on where to go and what to see so we could enjoy our trip to the fullest. If you are considering a trip to the Acadia region, do yourself a favor and book this wonderful cottage!"

"This home is absolutely beautiful, with all the comforts and extra details that make you feel at home. The privacy and quiet area gives you a wonderful sense of peace and soothes the soul. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the coastline, waters, woods and surrounding areas. But mostly a special thank you to the wonderful, caring owners who allowed us to share their lovely home. Looking forward to returning next year :)"

"This cottage has everything one could possibly want. We took five members of an adult group home and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Fishing, kayaking, rowing the canoe, swimming, fires in the fire pit and of course s'mores. Those who chose not to get in the water were content sitting on the wonderful dock or the shady porch. It is very well kept with all the amenities one would want plus more. The beach is great with easy access for those with physical disabilities. This cottage worked out so well for our group that I rented it a second week for my family. We live close by but have greatly enjoyed the little get away during such a busy time of the year. Thank you so much for offering this lovely cottage for others to share. It's a great spot and only a short drive to Acadia National Park."
