"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!"

"We just had a delightful fall week in Bar Harbor. We wanted to stay in a place where we did not need to get in a car for activities. Dee Dee had the perfect place. It was quiet, roomy, clean and with every amenity considered. We had a perfect restaurant experience and a well equipped kitchen for our meals at home. Because Dee Dee has the perfect location we had access to the Shore Path for a morning walk, shopping any time, and food at every turn. Hikes required a car but very close at hand."

"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!"

"We loved the Northridge townhouse. We were very impressed with the cleanness, comfort of the beds and the helpfulness of the owners. The Barkers provided great insight into hiking, biking, restaurants and more. The extras at the house were so nice (for example a basket of books about Acaida, laundry room with detergent and more) We truly felt at home during our vacation. It is also nice the townhouse is so close to Acaida entrance and downtown Bar Harbor."
