"Cove Cottage is the perfect getaway. It is well appointed and comfortable, with all the amenities one needs. The accomodation is quiet, and far from the crowds and traffic of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The local area is fun to explore, and the activity of the lobster boats in the harbor is fascinating. We highly recommend this cottage and plan to return."

"My wife and I stayed here with our family and friends (us + 2 other couples) for the last two summers. We spent our days hiking or canoeing and returned most nights to eat dinner together in the dining room with a large picture window overlooking the water. It's a gorgeous property and they just added a new bedroom and bathroom, so it had plenty of space for our group. We look forward to returning to this house on Deer Isle for many summers to come."

"The difference between a good vacation and an outstanding vacation is always related to the provider. Anyone can offer a cabin by the water. But a helpful, kind and knowledgeable owner will transform that cabin into the experience of a lifetime. This is exactly why we are giving Scott and his A-frame cabin a 5-star rating. The cabin by itself is spectacular.....a charming, well-cared-for cabin located on a picturesque knoll overlooking the water. But Scott's 30-years of experience on the coast of Maine makes this rental better than any other. Scott will show you where to find the best food, the best hiking, the places for sightseeing, the best shopping, the best outdoor adventure....all of those things that are known only to long-term locals. And for us, Scott's knowledge and guidance, plus the quiet relaxation of nice cabin in a wonderful location, turned our vacation into a little slice of heaven in Maine."

"We were first timers to Maine and Acadia. We had heard from many people we know about the crowds in the park. Initially, we debated changing our plans for vacation because we were trying to escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday life. We are glad we didn't.
The Tern II is an amazing property. We were all taken with the peace and quiet of the property not to mention the beauty of both the house itself and the landscape. The house is rustic and charming with room for everyone to hang out together or find their own space. The views from the windows and deck overlooking the ocean were gorgeous watching the changing tides and the abundant wildlife. Sitting out on the deck at night, I don't remember the last time I had seen so many stars.
We found the house stocked with everything we could possibly need - cooking utensils, towels and extras most rental homes don't include. The location is very convenient to the park and restaurants yet far enough away to be able to escape the crowds.
Overall, there isn't anything negative that I can say about our stay here. It made for a relaxing and memorable family vacation."
