"The cottage is perfect for a single person or a couple, is fully equipped, clean and comfortable. Great views of the ocean and Duck Island and Little Duck Island. Quiet, except for the sound of the ocean, birds, and the occasional lobster boat. Good restaurants within a very short drive; Red Sky was particularly excellent. The owners are very attentive, responsive and pleasant. Special place."

"We had a fabulous trip to Bar Harbor, Maine. The cottage had the best location for us. We liked being able to walk into town after a long day of hiking. The restaurants that Toni and Herb recommended were great. They answered all of my questions via phone or email. We walked the beautiful shore path every morning. Also, we enjoyed the great bikes that were provided with the cottage. We pack light, so we appreciated the washer and dryer in the basement. It was nice to be staying in a local neighborhood away from the crowds, but an easy walk to the Bar Harbor Shops."

"We had a great time-it was sunny and pleasant the whole week. There were 8 of us, including our 3 adult children and their significant others. The house was lovely, just like the photos and very clean. The kitchen was quite nice and easy to use. The circulator bus into Bar Harbor stops across from the house and runs every 30 mins (every 15 afte 3 pm), but we also walked into town. Note that you must walk through the bunkbed room from the large bedroom into the hallway. But we expected this and it wasn't an issue. It was one of the best vacations we've ever had and made even better by staying at Highbrook."

"Sow's Ear is the perfect destination and home base for an MDI vacation. The pictures do not show the lovely attention to details and the cozy, comfortable nature of the cottage. There was plenty of room for a family of four. The kitchen is well stocked, the bathrooms are immaculate, the bedrooms are spotless and comfortable, and the neighbors and owners are friendly and helpful. Our teenage boys took part in a daily adventure/rock climbing camp located in Bar Harbor, which allowed my husband and I long leisurely days exploring the island and relaxing. Some of the best carriage roads are about a mile away. I could not imagine a better home base on MDI. However, I would not recommend this home for travelers with small children. There are too many interesting things to touch!"
