  • Cozy Cottage on Western Bay

    "We had such a great time staying in this cozy cottage. The sunroom overlooking the water was my favorite place to sit. We saw seals playing and the fog rolling in at night. At high tide, you can hear the water from the master bedroom which just lulled us to sleep. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals if you want. Although there is not a washer and dryer, the kitchen sink is plenty big to rinse out a few items of clothes. Also, there is no wifi or TV which we thought was a bonus and we didn't miss either one at all! There is a radio so we listened to music. Cell service (Verizon) worked great! You can rent kayaks from a local company that will deliver right to the cabin (or bring your own) so we enjoyed the Western Bay waterfront access from the cabin. The cabin is located on a very quiet road and only 7 miles from the main entrance to Acadia National Park, 9 miles to Bar Harbor, and 10 miles to Ellsworth. We did not have any traffic to deal with. Lots of restaurants nearby and an IGA grocery that has everything else you might need. They even sell spirits and Maine's famous blueberry wine. Thank you Pat and Bob for sharing your cabin and we hope we can get to Maine again soon. There are many more hiking trails that we need to do."

  • Everything We Hoped For

    "We found the Chickadee Suite with its king-size bed and separate siting room with kitchenette to be very conveniently located, impeccably clean, wonderfully designed with every thought given to convenience by the gracious hosts, Donna and Kevin. We stayed three days, including one day of rain, and couldn't have been more comfortable."

  • Nice little apartment in a great location!

    "We have stayed at this apartment twice now with our daughter (6 mos first visit and 2.5 yrs second visit) and really liked it. The apartment is neat, nicely furnished, and has all that a small family needs. The owners are very nice and the communication has been good with both trips. It is wonderful to spend the day at Acadia and come back to the convenience of Bar Harbor. If you have a small child I would recommend bringing a child gate (we did), as the stairway up to the apartment is open and quite steep. We will definitely be back in the years to come."

  • Perfect spot of Fall in Acadia

    "Rugosa is a beautiful and peaceful cottage minutes from Acadia and a perfect place to welcome Fall each year. Rugosa is a perfect, yet simple, home-away-from-home for a week and I always look forward to walking through the front door at the start of our week. From early mornings down by the water, exploring what the tides brought the night before, to tucking in by the fire on a chilly early Fall evening, the space is warm and inviting. We've been bringing our kids since one was a year and a half and the other a baby. For years when afternoon naps are essential, the cottage location is perfect to spend a morning in the park and be back in time for a nap in the afternoon. Otherwise, it is so nice to only have a short drive back after a day of putzing around Bar Harbor or hiking and biking Acadia. My family enjoys meals overlooking the water and watching the sunset while cooking is a special treat. This cottage is a perfect spot to be with each other and soak in the natural beauty of a place as special as Mt. Desert Island--it makes for a truly memorable week and one that I look forward to each year."
