  • Perfect in every way for our visit to Acadia National Park

    "Virginia, My wife and I never formally thanked you for our stay back in October. We had a great time, and loved staying on the quieter side of the island. Yes we were there just as the Fed closed down, but that did not impede our travel plans in the least. As a matter of fact if may have made them better. My wife and I had planned on biking the carriage trails and hiking in the park, so those flimsy barricades were no match for our trusty 2 wheels and legs. We actually felt like we had the park to ourselves (more or less). The only negative was there were no restrooms open….but that’s what the woods are for anyway…right! And we didn’t get to have popovers at the Jordan Pond house. But we did eat our lunch one day right on the pond, and the next day we ate on the lawn of the restaurant. We did do some hiking, but did not get to climb Cadillac Mountain, as it was not easy to get to from the perimeter of the park without a car. But everything else we came to do we were able to do. Lots of good restaurants in the area. We did eat at a lobster pound and had a lobster roll another day. My wife and I are not big lobster eaters, so that was more of a mission than a passion, but now we can say we did it. We did stumble upon a unique place called the Common Grounds Café. Not sure if you are familiar with it, but it is out by the seawall. It is more of a soup kitchen for the poor where visitors make donations for a modest breakfast (which did include popovers) and the proceeds feed locals during the winter months. There were some characters there and that experience will give us stories to tell for years to come. Your place is amazing! I want to affirm you for the outstanding job you did in remodeling the barn into such a lovely cozy hideaway. The use of space was superb. The finish out was first class. And the location and relaxation factor were out of this world! We could have easily stayed for two weeks and not gotten tired of Acadia, and the enjoyment of hanging around your cottage. We stay at a lot of VRBO properties and yours is definitely one of the nicest and coolest places we have stayed. I’m sorry we did not get to meet you, but by the way your place looks I can tell you are an outstanding individual. Peace and Blessings as we move into the holidays. And of course Merry Christmas!"

  • Loved this house!

    "Our family stayed at Aleria Cottage at the end of June. The house is charming, roomy, and comfortable. Enjoyed the garden too! Perfect location to walk to the town of Southwest Harbor. Only a short drive to Acadia's major attractions. The owner was wonderful too."

  • Great House,great location

    "Just came back from a family vacation and stayed at this wonderful log cabin. There were 10 of us, and we could not have been more comfortable (the beds especially were very comfy). The kitchen is well stocked with cooking implements, there is lots of space for family hang-outs but also privacy when needed and the location could not be better. Not right in town -who wants the traffic- but only a few minutes from center of Bar Harbor and to Acadia Park entrance. The owner was very responsive and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommended."
