What a delightful stay!
"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!"

"Last week we spent five wonderful days in Bar Harbor/Arcadia National Park experiencing beautiful fall foliage and the tastes and sights of the area. A major contributing factor to our enjoyment was our stay at the Wayfaring Mermaid Suite. I received a quick response from Monique and the booking was seamless. The property was spotless, big full sized appliances with a comfortable bed and thick towels. For us the location was perfect very close to the park entrance and a short drive to town. We have rented many apartments and this is by far one of our favorites. I highly recommend this place and want to thank Joe and Monique for their hospitality."

"This very spacious suite had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.
It was close to all the highlights of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, was so relaxing after a day of hiking.
Donna was very helpful in providing places to see and eat, we wish we could have stayed longer."
