"I can't say enough great things about this beautiful gem near Acadia National Park. The owner has gone out of her way to make it welcoming and enjoyable for visitors. The kitchen is more than well equipped; there are two full refrigerators and an empty pantry in the center that proved incredibly convenient for us to store the groceries we bought. We enjoyed using the puzzles in the living room, which has a large table and fireplace. Each room has a ceiling fan and the bathrooms were perfect. There is a pretty flower garden and yard, and the nearest Park entrance is not far away. We also found the location to be very convenient to Bar Harbor where we could use a less traveled approach. The one thing you should know, is that even though there are 4 lovely bedrooms (each with a hamper and empty dressers) 3 of the bedrooms are accessed through each other. The bedroom on the third floor with 4 single beds can only be reached through a bedroom with a queen bed which is accessed from the bedroom with a double bed. We were three couples and it worked out fine for us. I would definitely choose to stay here again the next time I visit Acadia."

"The Hummingbird Suite was perfectly located to explore all areas of the island. It is extremely close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and within a short, beautiful drive to other island destinations.
Donna was easy and wonderful to work with. The place was spotless, comfortable, relaxing and had a serene setting out the back window. It was great to crack the windows and hear the frogs at night and chickens during the day. The gas fireplace kept me warm on colder nights. Overall, this suite was perfect and had everything I needed (from a comfortable bed to a fully stocked kitchen and a comfortable place to relax after exploring)."

"The chalet was the perfect Bar Harbor location for our first family vacation, including our dog! For us the location was perfect, close enough to major attractions like Acadia National Park and Downtown Bar Harbor, but secluded enough for relaxation. The house itself was immaculately clean, and had all the amenities one could need for the week (towels, dishes, hairdryer, etc.). The owners were really helpful and available when needed; they even left a binder full of dog-friendly restaurants and activities. We loved sitting out on the porch in the evenings and walking down to the water at low tide to explore. My only (minor) issue would be that there is no light above the shower in the bathroom, but this didn't bother us too much. Overall we had a wonderful time at the Chalet, and can't wait to come back!"

"This was my first visit to Maine. We were a group of adults who took in shopping, hiking, kayaking. Arcadia National Park will not disappoint you if you are a nature lover. Some of the views we encountered were breath taking. If shopping is your thing the Bar Harbor shops will delight any die hard shopper. If you like to gamble Bangor Maine's casino is only 42 minutes away. The explorer bus that travels throughout the park system as well as going into downtown Bar Harbor is just a few minutes from the cottage. Bar Harbor has limited & timed parking on the street, so taking the bus during high tourist season would be a bonus. We did have a rental car & we didn't end up using the bus, but it was a nice option if we wanted to do that. Folkstone cottage was more than adequate for our group. It was clean, comfortable and Lynn the owner was very helpful answering any questions that we asked. Folkstone cottage also provided everything we needed.....right down to the shower gel and shampoo. Detergent was even provided for the washing machine which came in handy because I had to do a small load of laundry because I didn't make note that in June in Maine the average temp was in the 70's, so I packed more shorts and not enough long pants. Although Maine is a dog friendly state and I love my 2 little maltipoos I am glad that I left them at home because there are so many unique towns to visit & quaint shops it would have been difficult to do with our dogs. Lastly I want to mention that there are many choices we could have picked but Folkstone was truly reasonably priced and it really had everything a person could want. Our refundable deposit was immediately returned to us as well. My expectations of the area and of Folkstone could not be anymore delightful despite the 2 days of rain and the small amount of money I lost at the casino."
