"This was probably my most enjoyable vacation! All my children and both my grandchildren were there. The house was so close to Bar Harbor, Acadia and many other fun things to do! We had the best time and the house was amazing. My husband and son had so much fun kayaking and the children and I had a great time looking for sea glass and shells!"

"Our girls getaway was great at the Acadia Getaway House! Nice house layout, private patio and yard, super Weber grill for easy dinners after a day biking, shopping and sightseeing at Acadia National Park. The House is at the perfect location for carriage trails, entrance to Cadillac Mountain and downtown Bar Harbor - nice Catholic Church for Sunday Mass was an added bonus. Owners are easy to work with and very responsive - I would recommend this property for anyone wishing to experience the beauty of Bar Harbor and surrounding areas! It was a perfect week living in a comfortable home surrounded by nature, fresh air, nice people and as much exercise, restaurants and scenic beauty that you could handle!"

"A smile of delight spread across my face as I walked up to the front door - you immediately see through the house to the view of the water. The Down East Cottage definitely exceeded mine and my husband's expectations. As others have stated, the pictures do not do it justice! We loved the wooded setting. Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was provided. The home was so relaxing it was hard to leave each day. The location is secluded yet wonderfully situated for easy access to the Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park area. It was such fun to explore all the parts of the island - quaint harbor towns like Southwest and Northeast Harbor. We loved hiking a few of the trails in the park - the weather was gorgeous! I think we had a lobster roll just about every day. Kayaking right outside the backdoor was a lot of fun - these were part of the house also. One morning when we were sitting by the water, it was low tide and a couple of veteran clammers came across digging and putting their clams in the buckets. The people were so friendly in the area - we
stopped to buy fresh lobster on the way to the house and upon hearing we were going back into town to buy corn and potatoes, they invited us to help ourselves to their garden! Watching the sunset by the fire pit was a neat way to end our days - the last night we made s'mores. Shirley and George couldn't have been more helpful as we made our arrangements for the trip. Lots of tips and pointers about fun and interesting things to do while we were there. All in all, our trip to the Down East cottage was everything we had hoped it would be and then some!"

"I have fallen in love with our National Parks and enlisted three long-time friends to tackle Acadia with me. We hunted high and low for the perfect lodging on MDI and surely found it at Summerside Cottage. Location is so ideal for all activities--we walked to all our meals (except for Thurston's which is the best lobstah experience on MDI), walked to kayaking and biking rentals and to the Village Green to catch the Island Explorer and all of the park entrances are a short drive away. The cottage is sparkling clean and wonderfully appointed for four or more. Bedding and towels are plentiful and great quality and the kitchen has everything a group will need. We all commented on how comfy all the beds are. We met the neighbors one night while sitting on the back deck having a glass of wine before walking to dinner and felt a part of the neighborhood. Logan and Hong gave us many ideas for restaurants and activities and were immediately responsive to any questions we had. We all would recommend this cottage for a variety of groups and I would love to return one day to Acadia, Bar Harbor and Summerside Cottage!"
