Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • 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!"

  • We want to go back to Squid Cove!

    "We have been coming to Mount Desert Island and renting houses for more than 20 years. In this time, we have stayed in at least 8 different homes. The family voted and decided that the camp on Squid Cover is our favorite spot on the island. It is one of the most beautiful and scenic spots you will ever find. The cabins are located in a very serene spot down a very long drive with no neighbors in site. We like to check out the seals in the cove everyday while they are sleeping or playing on the rocks. You are likely to see Loons and lots of other water fowl. There are great activities for the kids if they like to kayak or swim (although the water can be really cold!). The location is also excellent for getting around the island - - for hikes or getting into Bah Harbah. The cottages are clean and well maintained."

  • Great location and sunsets!

    "Great place! Very Clean and roomy. The sunsets from this place are killer! Very convenient to Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park. The beach area at low tide is great for walking. Woke to deer just about every morning. If you can't take your dog with you for the day and want to walk before leaving - there are some roads to walk that have hardly any traffic on them and they go right by the water for more great views!"

  • What a great retreat!!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bass Terre! This house is in a beautiful spot - a private cove with amazing ocean vistas! The grounds are well kept with lots of flowers - a comfortable deck and only one distant neighbor. The house is over 100 years old but in great condition - bathrooms, appliances and cable TV all work just fine. The bedrooms and mattresses are good and with the silence and cool night breezes, we all slept like babies! The living/dining area is spacious and all 5 adults (of varying ages) were very comfortable there. If we get back to Maine and Bass Terre some day, we will definitely take our dogs - there's a huge garage attached to the house that works if they're wet or need to be confined while you're out and about. The owners provided an excellent list of restaurants and activities that we used daily to plan our outings. Acadia National Park is the highlight and we spent several days exploring different parts of the park - including the top of Cadillac Mountain, Loop Drive along the rocky shore, the popovers at Jordan Pond and several hikes around lakes. We found Bar Harbor to be a crowded tourist trap so we wandered through some of the smaller fishing village shops and restaurants. Southwest Harbor, Somesville and Northeast Harbor are all charming villages. We highly recommend seeing Asticou Gardens! But most of all, we enjoyed returning to Bass Terre in the evening and watching the sun set."
