  • Perfect Maine Vacation

    "This cottage was everything we were looking for in our Main vacation. It's off the beaten path and away from tourists but close enough to enjoy all the amenities of Bar Harbor.it's located in a very quiet secluded area and has a spectacular view. It happened to be unseasonably cold while we were there, so,we did not get to Open the cottage windows and enjoy the ocean breeze. We did, however, thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace. Laura is an excellent hostess and always promptly responded to my emails. She also has many great restaurant suggestions. We enjoyed the cottage so much, my mother rented the cottage next year,and we hope to join her during her time there."

  • Perfect stay

    "Windiana ist a very well maintained property, clean and with a perfect location for a relaxing vacation. We have been there mid October, in summer time it must be even better when you can use the canoe and the kayaks they provide. We would love to come back another time and can highly recommend this property and the owner. Even though we could only contact by E-Mail, she was very helpful and responsive, thanks."

  • SIMPLY PERFECTION!

    "If you are searching for a spectacular and comfortable home with an EXCEPTIONAL view, search no further because you have found it! As the previous reviewer stated, the pictures of this "beautiful, upscale home can't capture the delight of being there" is spot on. This beautiful home has everything you are looking for: a beautiful view that overlooks Southwest Harbor; a gorgeous backyard, deck and screened in porch; a tastefully decorated interior first floor with a gorgeous, fully equipped modern kitchen, hardwood floors and a master bedroom that offers a comfortable bed, wonderful master bath and French doors to the screened in porch. (Just a small bit of advice, check the dryer downstairs if you don't find many dish and bathroom towels. We thought we would have to go and buy some towels but not the case. Housekeeping must have forgotten about the last load of laundry.) It was so tranquil to watch the lobster boats in the morning from bed. It truly doesn't get any better than that. The upstairs is just as beautiful with two large bedrooms and is carpeted. We absolutely loved spending time out on the deck that offered comfortable outdoor furniture and a large heating lamp. Nothing better than enjoying our breakfast and in the evening, appetizers and wine, listening to the water lap over the rocks to the shore. Whatever you are hoping for in a rental home, this home accommodates. Because we were in Acadia at the beginning of Sept, there was a full moon, and the view was amazing! We also had the pleasure of having a nightly evening walkthrough by a Mama deer and her baby and were thrilled when a bald eagle perched right on the backyard rocks to have its morning breakfast! As mentioned, this home is in Southwest Harbor but it was not a far ride to Bar Harbor or the Park. Actually, it gives you an opportunity to see more of the island by having to drive to key viewing spots at the Park. Also, because we visited Acadia in early September, Bar Harbor was not overly crowded, which was great. There is so much to do and see that we will go back to Acadia. The weather was perfect and the house as the review title states, "Simply Perfection"."

  • Lovely Home Away from Home

    "Absolutely beautiful cottage. Clean, clean clean. First class in every way. The harbor was peaceful and fascinating to watch. Screened porch was relaxing and delightful. Contrary to a couple negative comments, we really enjoyed watching the ferry across the street, the line up of cars was quiet and completely unobtrusive. Nice locale to access the trails in Acadia Nat. Park and easy 25 minutes to Bar Harbor. Buying fresh lobsters down on the dock was a bonus. We loved it!!!"
