"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."

"My fiance and I just spent our second vacation at this cabin (we also went last year for a week), and it was absolutely fantastic. Our dog loved it even more this second time - the open space to run around, the proximity to the bay (where she swam every day). The fiance loved the grill, outdoor dining set, and front porch - we enjoyed our coffee there in the mornings, and looked up at the stars at night. The privacy of the cabin is exactly what we were looking for, but it's also conveniently located within driving distance of everything that we needed/wanted. We certainly hope to return again, and make vacationing at this wonderful Maine cabin a family tradition!"

"Our first stay at this cottage -- we (a retired couple) were delighted. It fit our strategy of being close to civilization (20 minutes to Acadia, 25 to Bar Harbor) without the busy-ness or congestion. Laura is promptly responsive; this artistically decorated cottage is well-stocked. Photographers please note this cottage faces east so you get "golden hour" sunrise light over a classic tidal cove. Same concept for sleeper Lemoine State Park and nearby Blunt's Pond. First timers - I recommend not arriving after sunset as the surrounding thick cluster of trees in the final 100 yards to the cottage presents a worthy challenge to any visually impaired navigator. Second time is a breeze."
