Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Perfect Vacation

    "We have travel to Mount Desert Island every other year for the past 12 years and stayed in many hotels and houses, but this was our favorite. The views are beautiful, the house was very clean and well equipped including a fire pit, kayak, comfortable beds, and a great kitchen that had everything you could ever need. We had 4 teenagers and our golden retriever with us, and the kids loved playing Frisbee in the yard, kayaking and just hanging out on the floating dock. None of us wanted to leave!"

  • Great Family Reunion

    "This lovely house afforded our family a great opportunity to all be together for meals and socializing. There were 17 of us…adults and grown children. During the day family members went off hiking or touring but we would get together for dinners in the huge dinning room. The house is in a very convenient location… minutes from the Park entrance at Seal Harbor and no more than 10 minutes to Jordan Pond House. The back terrace is large and has a million dollar view."

  • Exactly what we Expected! A+++++

    "When the description states this is "Ocean Front"...that is so true, 30 feet from the deck, the "yard" drops off down the rocky coast to the Ocean! To wake up to this view everyday took our breath away. This cabin is stocked with necessities. And if you want them, your linens can be included, too. We used the heater everyday, and loved the gas stove in the living room in the evenings while reading and relaxing. Having Wi-Fi available was a plus, because the only service available on this point is AT&T. You have to drive up to Southwest Harbor, about 15 minutes, to get Verizon or other services. The Kitchen has what you need to create a nice dinner, and set a pretty table. The coffee maker makes it easy to rise in the morning and just look out over the ocean while having that first cup! We were just minutes away from everything, but loved coming back to our cozy quarters in the evenings. The owners are very kind, and straight-forward. I am disabled, and use a rollator/walker, and sometimes a wheelchair. I loved the easy entry ... only 2 steps to get into the cabin. The parking is on gravel by the island side deck. The deck has the two steps up from the gravel to the entry height. The deck also hosts a grill and Charcoal bricks for cooking. We did eat a few meals in, mostly breakfasts. We loved tasting the local cuisine, and the price for lobster, crab and seafood made eating out so possible! Cleaning before we left was easy, because all the materials needed were supplied. We will treasure these memories of our week vacation on Mount Desert Island forever. This cabin has 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed (very comfy) and the other with two twin beds... also comfy. Dressers and closets are available for your use during your stay. While there is no laundry facilities, there is a folding drying rack, so some hand laundry can be done and left to dry. Gott's Store, a local grocery, carries everything you'll need and only 10 minutes from the cabin. If you want a Walmart, one is located in Ellsworth, only 45 minutes away. One suggestion... arrive in the daytime... it is VERY dark, and few street lights are around. Finding Seaside Cottages in the dark is near impossible. We were so thankful for cell phone coverage, and for Kathy's patience while we inched our way toward the resort so late at night."

  • Perfect location

    "My family and I enjoyed a week at this beautiful cottage by the sea! Southwest Harbor is breathtakingly beautiful, this charming home was w wonderful place to come back to at the end of a day of biking, hiking and swimming. The yard was large enough to set up games and the large front porch a great place to gather (Mosquitos were our only challenge). Bedrooms large and beds very comfortable, bathrooms have all been updated. The only drawback was the furniture in the living room, dining room. Very worn down and not suitable for 6 ft. Tall men. Also the internet service was not dependable. Other than those issues our memories of this vacation house will be treasured."
