"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."

"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!"

"The Down East Cottage is an absolutely lovely home and exceeded our expectations in every way for our family vacation in Maine...the setting is more breathtaking than the photos capture! The cottage is pristine and is the perfect location to access MDI/Acadia and we also had a fantastic experience right around the corner at Lamoine beach finding starfish, quahog and razor clams, eels, and more...our kids had a blast! We enjoyed making s'mores and sitting by the fire pit, playing family games, listening to records, and watching movies after long, action-packed excursions in Acadia, Bar Harbor and beyond. Other favorites included discovering the Bar Harbor Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, popovers and hiking at Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Lighthouse/Trail, Thurston's Lobster Pound (wow!), shopping in Southwest Harbor, and Echo Lake/Cadillac Mountain adventures. We created countless memories at this lovely home in Maine. Shirley and George are extremely responsive owners, easy to communicate with, and extremely thoughtful as they even had a welcome gift to greet us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience everything Bar Harbor/Acadia has to offer, while simultaneously enjoying the privacy and solace of a secluded, beautiful waterfront property."

"My family and I just returned from an amazing vacation in Maine. The cottage was perfect! It had so many great details (antiques), amazing views, close to everything. It was perfectly laid out with one bedroom (1 king) upstairs and one bedroom downstairs (2 queen). A bathroom on both levels. A beautiful gas fireplace in the living room warmed the cottage on the cool June nights. Only about 15 miles to Acadia and 18 to Bar Harbor. We loved going to the park in the morning and spending our afternoons at the cottage.
My 9 and 11 year old sons dug for mussels every day and we had a huge feast later in the week.
We loved it so much we already booked for next year. Thank you Laura for sharing such a amazing place!"
