"We have been coming to maine for 20 yrs now and this was the best experience ever. The drive down the dirt road set the stage for a perfect week in a beautiful home with a great view. Laura thought of everything. Soft music playing, windows open letting in the salty air, blueberry jam and a fabulous pancake mix. It exceeded our expectations. Thank you Laura and Richard."

"This cottage is exactly as pictured, or better.
I was seeking a quiet haven to unplug (no wifi) and relax from city stress - and, pulling in, I knew I'd found the place.
One can kayak right off the front yard (we used our klepper). Gail let us use a canoe (hers).
There is not a soul around save the occaisonal lobsterboat in the distance. No noise. A few eagles and seals.
We didn't venture out for dinner (living in Europe, we get good food) - but who needs to with a view like that! The sunsets were beautiful.
We did cook on the grill and unwind with a glass of wine on the enclosed porch overlooking the bay. The galley kitchen has a granite countertop and the photo doesn't do it justice. The local wine & cheese shop is actually well appointed, a nice surprise.
The cottage is very clean, also a relief as I am picky.
Gail is a very caring owner. She loves her home and having people enjoy it, it shows in her attention to detail. Several wildflower bouquets awaited us! And a chest of blankets for cool days on the porch.
The drive to Mount Desert Island is about 40 min if one so desires to venture out. Seeing sunrise on Mt Cadillac on a clear day (get there 30' prior for best colours), hiking Gorham trail or seeing Schoodic Point were nice.
But Quiet Cove has nothing to envy from Acadia. In sum, with its isolation and enclosed private porch, it's better (no people, no bugs). (This stay prompted my husband to dig about close properties for sale).
I strongly recommend this place for those seeking a nice, quiet, authentic piece of Maine nature and not the ticky tack of tourist traps. You will not regret it."

"What a beautiful, relaxing place to visit. We enjoyed our week very much. We used the fire pit every evening and visited with the ducks everyday. We watched a loon and bald eagles with the binoculars that were provided. So peaceful and the kids used the kayaks for hours each day. Acadia was just a short drive away and the sights were stunning. Thanks for sharing your cottage!"

"The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Clean, cozy, private and with a fantastic view. We enjoyed the easy access to the shore, and the chance to see seals each morning. Our dog had plenty of room to run in the yard. We hope to return next year."
