Beautiful and quiet
"We just spent several glorious days here, same time as last year. This was a trip worth repeating in order to run the Mt. Desert Island Marathon again. We saw a rather large buck twice, each time out by the road in the area of the apple trees along the split rail fence. We enjoyed taking the canoe out on Hodgdon Pond and paddling around. We discovered a waterfall on the Acadia Park side of the pond and took a little hike in that area. - how stunning! And what a beautiful place to wallk to. So many little pathways and clearing and ponds to explore. If the night sky is clear, the stars are giant saucers splattered just inches above the cottage ) or so it seems). I think the best part is the crisp pine-scented air combined with the autumn kaleidoscope of colors.. A feast for the senses.

"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."

"This is a beautiful home, close to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. Very clean, comfortable, and has everything you could possibly need. Everything was as promised. Great size for two couples travelling together. Amazing views of Frenchmans' Bay from the master bedroom deck."

"This small suite is perfect for one or two people. The king bed allows for a wonderful night of rest and the fully updated, equipped kitchen is perfect for making meals at 'home.' There is a nice little deck off of the bedroom, allowing for a little place to sit and relax. The suite is extremely clean with no details missed. Additionally, the location is perfect for exploring any part of the island."
