Recent Mount Desert Island reviews
An amazing place to stay
"We had an amazing time at this cabin! It is quiet and tucked away in a beautiful area of MDI.
The space perfectly suited the needs of our little family (2 adults, a 5 month old and a dog). All week we woke to beautiful sunrises over the water, ate breakfast at the table, and then set out to explore Acadia, Bar Harbor, Schoodic, and Southwest Harbor. We would come home at dinner time (baby goes to sleep early) and enjoyed playing cards in the peace and quiet. Then we would lay out on the nice deck and gaze at the amazing night sky. Make sure you explore the beach at different tides! We had a lot of fun looking for shells and sea glass.
The cabin had everything we needed and was clean and uncluttered. Ben was extremely quick to reply to emails and phone calls (and is super nice too).
I would definitely stay here again. I have already recommended this cabin to family and friends. Thank you for making our first family vacation a great one!"

"We enjoyed our stay at this clean, private, quiet apartment in a beautiful location. Bass Harbor was a short walk as were some of the National Park sites. There are beautiful views from the private beach. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. All in all, it served us well as a quiet, relaxing home base as we visited may sites on the island. We would definitely stay there again."

Great value, very very clean, and private....Id love to stay here all year!
"I have stayed in many places in the 25 years that i have been visiting the Acadia region but nothing gives me greater joy than staying at the Corson Cottage. It is lovely, clean and highly efficient. It is located on the quiet side of the island and I love that as it lends itself to privacy, serenity, exploration, and gorgeous views. The downstairs is is bright, open, spacious for two people and I love the indoor fully functional bathroom, also very clean. Upstairs is accessed by a black wrought iron spiral staircase where 2 twin beds make for an inviting place for friends to join us. Parking is easy on the semi circular driveway and last minute groceries can be easily access by the grocery store which is walking distance from the property. If its very early in the season or late (I've been there for both) a small heater in the living room takes that Maine chill out of the air and reminds us why we all love to be in Maine as frequently as we can. If downtown Bar Harbor is for you its a short car ride or if you have forgotten a "must have" and downtown Southwest harbor doesn't fit your needs, Ellsworth is a short 25-30 minute drive. Id love to make this area my home someday and hope I can find a place as nice as Corson Cottage."

"This small suite is perfect for one or two people. The king bed allows for a wonderful night of rest and the fully updated, equipped kitchen is perfect for making meals at 'home.' There is a nice little deck off of the bedroom, allowing for a little place to sit and relax. The suite is extremely clean with no details missed. Additionally, the location is perfect for exploring any part of the island."
