Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Bass Harbor Magic

    "We were 7 friends all 70 and then some. Some of us had been to Bass Harbor before and for others this was a first. The house is charming and very well equipped, beds, kitchen, washer and dryer and best of all a great porch. The owners were most helpful in suggesting not to be missed sites and restaurants. Our favorite morning spot was Common Grounds, they serve the best popovers on the island, and coffee and old fashion oatmeal...not to be missed. The house allowed each of us together spaces and private space, which was needed for a 2 week vacation with car travel. I will recommend this house to any and all who plan to visit Mt Desert Island and Arcadia National Park. During the summer there is free bus service on the island and over to Ellsworth so its possible to enjoy Seamist cottage without a car."

  • Wonderful House and a Great Vacation!

    "We really enjoyed our stay here. We were there from Saturday to Saturday (just me and my girlfriend) and the house was ideal for us. It was close to the town of Southwest Harbor but far enough away to be private. It was very comfortable and we enjoyed breakfast and coffee on the deck overlooking the harbor every morning. We hiked up Cadillac Mountain, Acadia Mountain, St. Saveur Mountain, Valley Peak, and down to Echo Lake from Beech Mountain, among other hikes and we ate ate Thurston's, Sawyer's, Beal's, Quietside Cafe, and other favorites. The house was perfectly situated for all the hiking and lobster and blueberry pie eating we liked to do. The kitchen was well equipped and made blueberry pancakes and lobster scrambled eggs, and once we boiled lobster at home. Working with Mark was an absolute pleasure. He made everything very easy for us and the house was clean and in excellent order when we arrived. We would definitely recommend this house and will stay there again."

  • Great place to stay!

    "The cottage was clean and well stocked, convenient to the park and the owners were very nice. We explored so much of the park in such a short time. It was a fantastic place to rent for the half marathon and a short walk from the finish line. There a few hikes in Acadia within a mile or two. Southwest Harbor is a short walk. Eagle Lake and the Cadillac entrance to the park loop road are a short drive (10 miles?)."

  • Perfect spot of Fall in Acadia

    "Rugosa is a beautiful and peaceful cottage minutes from Acadia and a perfect place to welcome Fall each year. Rugosa is a perfect, yet simple, home-away-from-home for a week and I always look forward to walking through the front door at the start of our week. From early mornings down by the water, exploring what the tides brought the night before, to tucking in by the fire on a chilly early Fall evening, the space is warm and inviting. We've been bringing our kids since one was a year and a half and the other a baby. For years when afternoon naps are essential, the cottage location is perfect to spend a morning in the park and be back in time for a nap in the afternoon. Otherwise, it is so nice to only have a short drive back after a day of putzing around Bar Harbor or hiking and biking Acadia. My family enjoys meals overlooking the water and watching the sunset while cooking is a special treat. This cottage is a perfect spot to be with each other and soak in the natural beauty of a place as special as Mt. Desert Island--it makes for a truly memorable week and one that I look forward to each year."
