"We are enjoying our stay in this comfortable cottage. The view is great. Bass Harbor is quiet and low key and still allows you easy access to Acadia National Park, good restaurants and shopping. We appreciated the opportunity to stay in this well maintained cottage with our well traveled little dog. Enjoyed all the conveniences provided, the private parking and the wonderful deck."

"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

"There are so many wonderful things to say about Diamond Rock! The 2 master suites and 3 1/2 bathrooms were perfect for the 5 of us (2 couples & our single 25 year old daughter) and there were 2 bedrooms to spare! The natural light that fills this house was wonderful! This beautiful home is spacious - giving the early risers a place to sip their coffee & talk without waking the others. The air conditioning was a welcome amenity! Living room had plenty of seating for the 5 of us. We put the game table to good use in the evening and had plenty of room around the dining room table to eat and plan the days excursion. Loved the fact that the kitchen was open to the living room so no one was excluded from conversations. Quality built home (wood trim warm & inviting), tastefully decorated, very clean, extra pillows & blankets, kitchen had all the essentials, and property well maintained. The washer & dryer high quality & looked new, centrally located to all bedrooms. House surrounded by beautiful trees but you can still see the ocean. Upper deck wraps around & lower deck has a clothesline. Such a quiet location - totally relaxing! Appreciated the wireless, especially when our security alarm went off at home - we were able to logon right away to see which sensor went off. The bedrooms are spacious - so nice to be able to unpack & have room to move around. The whole house is layed out so well! This home is in a great location - secluded but close to downtown southwest harbor & a short drive to Bar Harbor. The owner gave timely replies to questions and made many great recommendations for grocery shopping, dining and activities - a huge & much appreciated help to us as first timers to MDI. Two bouqets of fresh flowers greeted us when we walked in & we enjoyed them all week. The weather was wonderful every day we were in town so we weren't 'home' much but had it rained we would have been quite comfortable lounging around the house and would have used the TV and DVD player. It is without reservation we recommend Diamond Rock to you!"

Comfortable, full-stocked cottage with wonderful views
"My husband, 11-year-old daughter and I spent a week at the end of August at this cottage. We had compared a lot of houses on Mount Desert Island before selecting this one. We were not disappointed. The cottage is spotlessly clean, well-stocked and comfortable. The master is a large size. The second bedroom is cozy and has a terrific view. The deck was our favorite place to relax after a busy day of hiking/sailing/rock-climbing. It is about a 15-20 minute drive into Bar Harbor. Very peaceful. The washer/dryer was convenient. The kitchen is fully stocked. It even had a coffee grinder! We have rented houses before and never had such a nicely stocked kitchen. Wi-Fi is good. The upstairs great room was a great place to relax and watch TV in the evening. It was removed enough that it did not disturb anyone who wanted to turn in early.
The listing description and photos are accurate.
Our hosts were gracious, friendly and helpful. Their recommendations and suggestions made our stay better. They recommended the Seafood Ketch in Bass Harbor. We enjoyed it so much we went back on our last day in Bar Harbor.
I highly recommend this rental."
