Great value, very very clean, and private....Id love to stay here all year!
"I have stayed in many places in the 25 years that i have been visiting the Acadia region but nothing gives me greater joy than staying at the Corson Cottage. It is lovely, clean and highly efficient. It is located on the quiet side of the island and I love that as it lends itself to privacy, serenity, exploration, and gorgeous views. The downstairs is is bright, open, spacious for two people and I love the indoor fully functional bathroom, also very clean. Upstairs is accessed by a black wrought iron spiral staircase where 2 twin beds make for an inviting place for friends to join us. Parking is easy on the semi circular driveway and last minute groceries can be easily access by the grocery store which is walking distance from the property. If its very early in the season or late (I've been there for both) a small heater in the living room takes that Maine chill out of the air and reminds us why we all love to be in Maine as frequently as we can. If downtown Bar Harbor is for you its a short car ride or if you have forgotten a "must have" and downtown Southwest harbor doesn't fit your needs, Ellsworth is a short 25-30 minute drive. Id love to make this area my home someday and hope I can find a place as nice as Corson Cottage."

"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!"

"We stayed at Hodgon Pond Farm during mid-June and had a wonderful experience. We were an extended-family of eight ranging in age from 1 1/2 years to 70 years, and each one of us had a blast. Everyone got out in the canoes and kayaks to take in the beautiful views and wildlife. The kiddos loved hanging out in the play area near the house, listening to the bullfrogs and pretending to be pirates. We loved being on the quiet side of the island, while also finding it easy to head to Echo Lake, Cadillac Mountain, and Jordan's Pond House. We'll be back, for sure, but it won't come quickly enough for my kiddos."

"I rented this farmhouse to stay in while my husband and boys camped at Seawall with their Boyscout troop. First, the location in Southwest Harbor was great. I was minutes away from the campsite, within a mile of a grocery store, within walking distance of plenty of charming shops and restaurants. And, everything in Acadia is within easy driving distance, so the location if visiting the park is great. The farmhouse was amazing. It was exceptionally clean, the bathroom with a washer/dryer set up was the size of most bedrooms, the bedroom was big enough to walk around and had a desk to work at with free wi-fi, the living and kitchen area were also very big. Although I did not use the kitchen area, it seemed to have everything anyone would need to fix meals. The owner was readily available by email when I needed to let her know of an arrival and departure change. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. And, if I ever get back to this area of Maine, I would definitly try to book this rental."
