Excellent place to stay!
"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."

"We enjoyed our stay at Willowbrook very much. The house easily accommodated the eleven of us. The bedrooms were all large and the beds were fine. The kitchen had everything we needed and the washer and dryer were brand new. The living room was very large and was ideal for evening gatherings. Location was great for seeing Acadia and Bar Harbor. Owner gave us some great recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants. Thurston's Lobster Pound was worth the short drive."

Perfect Place to Stay in Bar Harbor... especially if you have a little one!
"I'm still here and was just very eager to write a stellar review. We couldn't be happier staying here!
We had never been to Bar Harbor before, so we were "blindly" looking for accommodations. When booking at first, I was concerned that the apartment is a few miles out of town, but I AM SO GLAD WE ARE NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN! The apartment is quiet with ocean breezes and lots of sun-- none of which I think you would get amidst the business of town. Town is only a quick 5 minute drive and there is plenty of parking. Very convenient.
The apartment is also a stone's throw from the Acadia entrance, which turned to be perfect when traveling with our 2-year old. We can enjoy part of the park in the morning, conveniently head home for nap time, then head back. If you plan to visit the park (and it will take you DAYS to enjoy all parts), this is the perfect location. There is also Hull's Cove, a little beach, and restaurant about a block away.
As far as the apartment-- it is absolutely lovely! It is so clean and well-maintained that I feel like we are the first family to stay in it. Very comfortable. Every detail is gorgeous and meticulous (including fresh flowers upon arrival! And sand toys and coolers for trips to the beach!) Monique and Joe are kind and attentive. They even have a lovely outdoor patio for tenants with a fireplace stocked with wood and gas and charcoal grills. Perfect place for wine in the evening after putting the little one to bed! We are also very appreciative that they have a Pack and Play. That means we all get a good night's sleep!
We highly highly recommend staying here!"

"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."
