"Our first stay at this cottage -- we (a retired couple) were delighted. It fit our strategy of being close to civilization (20 minutes to Acadia, 25 to Bar Harbor) without the busy-ness or congestion. Laura is promptly responsive; this artistically decorated cottage is well-stocked. Photographers please note this cottage faces east so you get "golden hour" sunrise light over a classic tidal cove. Same concept for sleeper Lemoine State Park and nearby Blunt's Pond. First timers - I recommend not arriving after sunset as the surrounding thick cluster of trees in the final 100 yards to the cottage presents a worthy challenge to any visually impaired navigator. Second time is a breeze."

"Rocko's Cottage was a perfect VRBO for our two week stay in Bar Harbor. Walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants downtown and only a few minutes from Acadia. The cottage is clean, quiet and stocked with everything we needed to feel at home. Off street parking was a plus. Thank you for providing such a wonderful home for our annual Bar Harbor visit."

"The chalet turned out to be a perfect place for my husband and me and our two dogs.
Bar Harbor is jam-packed with tourists in August and we enjoyed taking a 10-min. drive to town when we wanted and then having a quiet retreat to come home to. Acadia was just as convenient. We spent much time relaxing on the deck, watching the dogs run around the large yard, and taking walks along the quiet, pebbly beach (that was pretty much our own) and over to Hadley Point.
Inside, there was everything we needed and when we couldn’t figure out how to tap into the wireless, Joe called us right back.
The cottage is nicer inside than the pictures show. The wood is classy and rustic and the cabinets look new. The loft is adorable and spacious although we had no need to use it. The house would be fine for a family of four as long as - with the open layout - you wanted to know everything your kids were doing at all times.
Our only pet peeve had nothing to do with this house. We remain mystified why the residents next door keep a large blue commercial van at the bottom of their driveway, blocking their water view and leaving us to ponder every day if it’s possible to get tired of such a lovely spot."
