"The house location was close to Acadia Ntl. Park and downtown Bar Harbor. It is on a quiet street. It is a little small and outdated with electrical, bath and kitchen, but it worked out great for our family of five (three boys). The laundry was really nice to have. The owners were great to work with and they were very helpful with ideas for how to get around on our bikes bypassing busy roads. The internet worked very well. They had lots of basics for us in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry. There is a little front yard our boys played in and there is a large grassy area at a school yard very close by. We walked to Bar Harbor several times without it being too far for us and our children (ages 8, 11 and 14)."

"There are so many wonderful things to say about Diamond Rock! The 2 master suites and 3 1/2 bathrooms were perfect for the 5 of us (2 couples & our single 25 year old daughter) and there were 2 bedrooms to spare! The natural light that fills this house was wonderful! This beautiful home is spacious - giving the early risers a place to sip their coffee & talk without waking the others. The air conditioning was a welcome amenity! Living room had plenty of seating for the 5 of us. We put the game table to good use in the evening and had plenty of room around the dining room table to eat and plan the days excursion. Loved the fact that the kitchen was open to the living room so no one was excluded from conversations. Quality built home (wood trim warm & inviting), tastefully decorated, very clean, extra pillows & blankets, kitchen had all the essentials, and property well maintained. The washer & dryer high quality & looked new, centrally located to all bedrooms. House surrounded by beautiful trees but you can still see the ocean. Upper deck wraps around & lower deck has a clothesline. Such a quiet location - totally relaxing! Appreciated the wireless, especially when our security alarm went off at home - we were able to logon right away to see which sensor went off. The bedrooms are spacious - so nice to be able to unpack & have room to move around. The whole house is layed out so well! This home is in a great location - secluded but close to downtown southwest harbor & a short drive to Bar Harbor. The owner gave timely replies to questions and made many great recommendations for grocery shopping, dining and activities - a huge & much appreciated help to us as first timers to MDI. Two bouqets of fresh flowers greeted us when we walked in & we enjoyed them all week. The weather was wonderful every day we were in town so we weren't 'home' much but had it rained we would have been quite comfortable lounging around the house and would have used the TV and DVD player. It is without reservation we recommend Diamond Rock to you!"

"This was my first visit to Maine. We were a group of adults who took in shopping, hiking, kayaking. Arcadia National Park will not disappoint you if you are a nature lover. Some of the views we encountered were breath taking. If shopping is your thing the Bar Harbor shops will delight any die hard shopper. If you like to gamble Bangor Maine's casino is only 42 minutes away. The explorer bus that travels throughout the park system as well as going into downtown Bar Harbor is just a few minutes from the cottage. Bar Harbor has limited & timed parking on the street, so taking the bus during high tourist season would be a bonus. We did have a rental car & we didn't end up using the bus, but it was a nice option if we wanted to do that. Folkstone cottage was more than adequate for our group. It was clean, comfortable and Lynn the owner was very helpful answering any questions that we asked. Folkstone cottage also provided everything we needed.....right down to the shower gel and shampoo. Detergent was even provided for the washing machine which came in handy because I had to do a small load of laundry because I didn't make note that in June in Maine the average temp was in the 70's, so I packed more shorts and not enough long pants. Although Maine is a dog friendly state and I love my 2 little maltipoos I am glad that I left them at home because there are so many unique towns to visit & quaint shops it would have been difficult to do with our dogs. Lastly I want to mention that there are many choices we could have picked but Folkstone was truly reasonably priced and it really had everything a person could want. Our refundable deposit was immediately returned to us as well. My expectations of the area and of Folkstone could not be anymore delightful despite the 2 days of rain and the small amount of money I lost at the casino."
