  • A Gorgeous Property and Fantastic Experience!

    "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."

  • Little Piece of Heaven!

    "Such a charming cottage! My family and I just returned home yesterday from a weeks vacation at this cottage. We had such an amazing time. It was very neat and well stocked. The views are amazing! I have two young boys ages 4 and 5 and they had the best time on the beach. It is loaded with sea glass, hermit crabs and shells. There are so many great restaurants near by. Lots of hiking trails in the area too. Rusty and Lynne were very sweet and helpful. I feel so lucky to have found this spot and can't wait to return!!"

  • Felt Like at Home

    "My first experience of renting a family owned suite turned out fantastic. We really liked the place. It's a clean and well decorated suite. Everything is provided, much better than staying in a hotel. Donna is a very friendly lady. We definitely will rent it again if we revisit the national park."

  • Paul's Cottage is wonderful

    "We have been coming to Paul's Cottage for many years. The cottage satisfied a dream we had for a long time. We have been coming to Maine since the middle 1950's and the idea of buying a place on the ocean in Maine had become a strong wish but we could never afford it. Later, with improved financial circumstances, one could contemplate buying a place in Maine, however, then there was simply not enough time to maintain and worry about additional property. Paul's cottage is a perfect answer. It is in an absolutely beautiful location on the water on one of the loveliest places on the East coast. The place is better equipped with amenities than our house in Newton and best of all, when things age and break, we find them repaired and often improved the next year. We cannot think of a better deal!"
