Great location and sunsets!
"Great place! Very Clean and roomy. The sunsets from this place are killer! Very convenient to Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park. The beach area at low tide is great for walking. Woke to deer just about every morning. If you can't take your dog with you for the day and want to walk before leaving - there are some roads to walk that have hardly any traffic on them and they go right by the water for more great views!"

"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."

"We came here for an annual Girls Getaway. There were 6 of us and the house worked even better than we thought it would. Sherri met us and showed us around the house. It's so roomy. Everyone was able to have their separate beds. We had brunch in the sunny dining room and morning coffee on the front porch. Loved the convenience of a washer and dryer. It was very clean and furnished nicely. The location is perfect. We walked all around Bar Harbor and every evening to our favorite pubs. Everything is steps away. We drove to Arcadia Park and surrounding towns and just love everything about this area. Thank you Sherri for making ours a great memorable vacation with this beautiful house."
