  • Loved it!

    "The location was quiet and private yet very convenient for sightseeing on the island. The house was clean, well kept, and well furnished. We have no complaints."

  • Memorable Home, Memorable Vacation!

    "This home was the best! It really was everything we could want in a vacation home. The teens were having a fit about not going to the beach as usual, so they were a hard sell - but even they said this was one of the best vacations ever. Jennifer was extremely receptive to our questions (even the dumb ones). The house was located in a great spot close to Southwest Harbor. A main grocery store was at the bottom of the hill, and the town was minutes away by car. We were so glad we didn't stay in Bar Harbor - it is a lovely place, and we went there twice, but the crowds - forget it.... Southwest Harbor was quaint and had everything we needed. Good restaurants, ice cream, bike rentals and fairly close to all the places we wanted to visit on the Island. We were two families - we stuck the teens up in the bunk bedroom (top of A-frame). It wasn't until the 3rd day we realized there was a pool table in the basement! The porch which runs the length of the house was just gorgeous, looking out over the woods. There were a few homes up on our road, but you couldn't see them through the forest. The stars were amazing, especially from the hot tub. We were there the 2nd week of July and the weather was great - never had to use the AC, always a breeze... We called the house "our green cabin", but it was far from a cabin! I have done many vacation rentals over the years, and it was so refreshing to stay in a home that was really someone's vacation home - not an investment property with zero personal touches. Fun stuff we did on MDI: rented bikes and road around the ponds, having lunch at Jordan House (we timed the ride with help from bike store in SW Harbor and made reservations outside) - beautiful! We enjoyed sunset atop Cadillac Mt., after enjoying a lobster meal at one of the roadside lobster pounds (near north entrance to park). We spent an afternoon at Echo Lake for a "refreshing" swim. A special highlight was going to Sand Beach on the loop road, views were breathtaking. We took a lunch, left our stuff on the beach and hiked up and around Great Head Trail - a little challenging for some of us, but well worth it. I would highly recommend Eat a Pita restaurant for any meal in SW Harbor. My thanks to our hosts, and should we go Northeast - Downeast again, we will be sure to rent this special home."

  • Lovely Place to Stay

    "Karen worked with us with a last minute request to stay at her cottage. We loved it from the moment we arrived. It was very clean, equipped, and comfortable. The kitchen was outstanding-every appliance, serving dish, amenity you could possibly want or need. Settling down in the evenings in the beautiful living room area was great. Recliners and a massive flat screen TV along with plants and knick knacks made it all very homey! We were in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park every day and it was a very easy transit back and forth to the cottage. The ice maker didn't work correctly and Karen fixed that right away. Wi-Fi wasn't available to us. We loved being able to do laundry when we wanted to in the new, modern, efficient, fast washer and dryer. it was also great to not have to pack much for our stay. Karen is kind and generous enough to provide a lot of the little things like dish soap, linens for bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. She even followed up our visit with a phone call to our home to thank us. We found her very accessible and easy going if we had questions or asked for recommendations in the area while we stayed in her cottage. Thank you Karen for a great visit! We would recommend to it to anyone!"
