"Well appointed home with lots of amenities. Wish I'd brought my binoculars as that was the only thing, besides a boat which I could have rented nearby, that wasn't available in the house. The dock, the sound, the habitat, the view, the porches, the woodstove, kayaks, etc. all well designed for my family's week on MDI next to Acadia. Should have done 2 weeks!"

"We came to Maine to raise a barn. This cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, cozy, and friendly. We had everything that we could possibly need. I did some cooking for our crew, and had everything that I needed. The owners were very responsive, helpful, and generous. The location was just a few miles from where we were working, and close to everything else that we needed. We had a very pleasant stay.
The only reason to hesitate in giving a great review, is that others will love the place as much as we did: Then it would not be available the next time we want to stay. The pictures do not depict the true feel of this lovely home.
Thank you Audrey and Ken from us, and all of our team of timberframers.

"Our stay at the cottage was more than we could have imagined. The setting was lovely with a full moon shining on the water from the great room window. The cottage was well decorated and it felt like you were at home but on vacation. It had ever thing you need and then some. We loved the fact that we could take a short walk(5 minutes) to get fresh lobster dinners and then browse the downtown Southwest Harbor. Our son and daughter-in-law had date night each night in the window seat. One on his computer and the other reading her book. Just too cute!!! We really liked the fact that we could be in the park in about half an hour and also to Bar Harbor. We were very thankful that we could leave the bustle of Bar Harbor and return to our cozy quiet cottage. So glad we chose not to stay in Bar Harbor but enjoyed the quiet side of the Island. The owners happen to be in town at the same time and offered many suggestions but still gave us our privacy. We enjoyed meeting them. We would and have recommended it to many of our friends. We could not have been any more pleased with our choice in this cottage. One of our better vacations because there was something to do for all our ages."

"This was our family's first visit to Maine and Acadia. Renting this house was the best plan we made for the trip. The quiet serenity, the wildlife, and the scenery were all amazing. The house is rustic like a cabin and well equipped like a family home. We spent our mornings watching harbor seals and identifying birds including bald eagles, osprey, loons, cormorants, various woodpeckers (including a pileated pair), kingfishers, and forest songbirds. An eagle landed in a tree right off the deck when were were eating our first breakfast. We were visited by deer and red squirrels. We hated to leave and cannot wait to return. Tern II is an enchanting place to spend a week or more. Definitely bring binoculars, even if you are not an active birder. Also: The restaurants in the small towns around the island are outstanding. Red Sky and Sips in Southwest Harbour are excellent, just to name two."
