"The house is even lovelier than the pictures. It's clean, beautifully decorated with lots of windows for the beautiful views in every direction. The garden is also tastefully designed and well tended. Grocery and specialty shops are within 5 minutes. We stayed an extra day and still never ran out of things to do. Bar Harbor and main Acadia is just 30 minutes away and a pleasant drive. There are Acadia attractions right in Southwest Harbor about 10 minutes away. The Island Explorer bus service has a stop a block away. Great restaurants (Beals) are within walking distance. It was interesting to watch the fishing boats come in and out of the harbor. The sunsets are viewable from the patio or the dock. Would rate this rental 6 stars if possible."

"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?)."

Fantastic Place To Stay with easy access to Acadia
"Apple Cottage was wonderful and the perfect place for a family of four to stay. The cottage was immaculate! Views from the deck and property of the Cranberry Isles were excellent. At low tide we enjoyed finding sand dollars right off the property. Owner was responsive, very friendly, and clearly loves Mount Desert Island. She made excellent restaurant and hiking recommendations. Southwest Harbor is a lovely community with nice options for eating-out or picking up necessary supplies. If you stay at Apple Cottage you will be happy that you did."

"This cottage was everything we were looking for in our Main vacation. It's off the beaten path and away from tourists but close enough to enjoy all the amenities of Bar Harbor.it's located in a very quiet secluded area and has a spectacular view. It happened to be unseasonably cold while we were there, so,we did not get to Open the cottage windows and enjoy the ocean breeze. We did, however, thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace. Laura is an excellent hostess and always promptly responded to my emails. She also has many great restaurant suggestions. We enjoyed the cottage so much, my mother rented the cottage next year,and we hope to join her during her time there."
