Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • What a Wonderful, Comfortable Place

    "This cottage is in such a beautiful setting you almost hate to leave. And when you do you don't have to go very far. The causeway at the end of the semi-private lane lured us down there morning and evening every day to watch the tide flow in and out of Norwood Cove. The heart of Southwest Harbor with its restaurants and shops is an easy walk away. Beautiful Bass Harbor is just down the road. As mentioned earlier, the house has everything you need from cooking gear to spices to laundry detergent and paper goods. It has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. It has nice towels and sheets and very good beds. The owner's book was full of great suggestions, and we took advantage of their ideas almost every day. The Knollette is not a fancy place, but it is a very accommodating place. We loved it from the moment we first saw it. The four of us Acadia first-timers agree that Southwest Harbor and the Knollette is the place to be on Mount Desert. We will be back."

  • Great Rental Home

    "We (10 of us-5 adults/5 teenagers) just spent a week at this property and absolutely loved it. It was a perfect place for the whole family. We loved the pool, the tennis court and the waterfront views. The house was very clean, spacious and offered everything that we needed. The owners are friendly and answered any and all of the questions that we had. I would highly recommend this property to everyone."

  • Great vacation week in this house

    "We just came back home after spending a week in this house. The house was just as described: well furnished and equipped. 3 bedrooms accommodated 7 people comfortably. Kitchen had all we needed. Electronics worked. Etc. WiFi Internet was pretty slow, Verizon phones had no reception, AT&T had good reception. Owner was very friendly and provided detailed descriptions and instructions about all aspects of our stay. Staying in the lakefront house has a lot of advantages. Hodgdon Pond is really beautiful and quiet, we barely saw or heard any neighbors. We used boats that are provided, it is easy to paddle around; went swimming and fishing (bought licenses). I also suggest taking a canoe out at night, I bet you haven't seen that many stars in the sky. My kids loved gazing for shooting stars and we were rewarded periodically even though it wasn't a meteorite shower time. I'm not going to list all attractions of Acadia NP that we visited, but want to recommend visiting Ship Harbor. It is an easy flat trail that runs along very pure, very "Maine" shore line and there is not a lot of people. It is about 15 minutes away from the house."
