  • Lovely Place to Stay

    "Karen worked with us with a last minute request to stay at her cottage. We loved it from the moment we arrived. It was very clean, equipped, and comfortable. The kitchen was outstanding-every appliance, serving dish, amenity you could possibly want or need. Settling down in the evenings in the beautiful living room area was great. Recliners and a massive flat screen TV along with plants and knick knacks made it all very homey! We were in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park every day and it was a very easy transit back and forth to the cottage. The ice maker didn't work correctly and Karen fixed that right away. Wi-Fi wasn't available to us. We loved being able to do laundry when we wanted to in the new, modern, efficient, fast washer and dryer. it was also great to not have to pack much for our stay. Karen is kind and generous enough to provide a lot of the little things like dish soap, linens for bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. She even followed up our visit with a phone call to our home to thank us. We found her very accessible and easy going if we had questions or asked for recommendations in the area while we stayed in her cottage. Thank you Karen for a great visit! We would recommend to it to anyone!"

  • Perfect little cottage!

    "My husband and I were celebrating our 32nd anniversary and booked the delightful "Safe Harbor" cottage. We couldn't have been more pleased. It's beautifully decorated, very clean and nicely appointed, and the view of picturesque Southwest Harbor is wonderful. We spent a lot of time in those adirondack chairs in the pictures just watching the comings and goings of the lobster boats and sailboats…it never got old! The location is also very convenient to the shops and restaurants of the village of Southwest Harbor. It is very close to the road, but since this is "The Quiet Side" of Mt. Desert, it was never a problem for us. Christie, the owner was very nice and accommodating…the internet wasn't working when we got there so we called her. She had it fixed the next morning. We would love to go back again soon!"

  • 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!!!"

  • 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!"
