  • True Maine Beauty

    "I can't say enough wonderful things about the cabin and my dealings with Ben through the rental process. He was very responsive and great to work with in renting out the cabin, he made it easy and actually pleasurable. The cabin itself is very clean, well maintained and has the perfect amenities to make you feel at home without taking away from your connection to the landscape, beauty and fresh ocean air. The downtown area is lovely and quaint with little shops and great restaurants. We cooked at the cabin a few times -there was a very nice lobster pot and burner for us to use- and we also ate out. The cabin is located on the "quiet" side of the island so you don't have all of the tourists like Bar Harbor, yet Bar Harbor is a short drive if you would like to visit for a day or an afternoon. The location is really the best of both worlds offering serenity when you desire, but allowing you to explore and mingle with others when (and if) you like. Acadia itself is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise with plenty of hiking trails, biking on the gorgeous carriage roads, kayaking, fishing, photography..... If you like nature, the beach and Maine there is truly no better location than this cabin! It is a slice of heaven on Earth!"

  • Simple cabin in extraordinary place

    "Amazing vacation. The quiet side was absolutely the right choice for us. 15 minutes or less to some great hikes, and very close to awesome breakfast spots, library, groceries and bike rentals in southwest harbor... wonderful to be as far away from Bar Harbor as possible while still on MDI!! The cabin wasn't quite as secluded as we had hoped - you can see several neighbors across the open lawn, but it was very quiet, very cute, and had everything we needed for a fantastic vacation."

  • Our Winter Retreat

    "We have enjoyed Paul's cottage for our last seven February vacations. Mt Desert Island in the winter is fantastic! A day cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in Acadia is scenic and beautifully quiet. Returning to the cottage each afternoon and enjoying the fireplace, warm beverages, water views, sunsets and seabirds visible right outside the cottage window is heavenly. Sleeping in the loft bedroom, watching the moon, stars and lighthouse beacons is as romantic as it gets. Paul's cottage has everything you need, Kathy is extremely helpful, and we will keep returning to this amazing location. The pictures show it all except the tranquility of winter. We do recommend Paul's cottage to our friends but only if they promise not to compete for our week!"

  • What a great retreat!!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bass Terre! This house is in a beautiful spot - a private cove with amazing ocean vistas! The grounds are well kept with lots of flowers - a comfortable deck and only one distant neighbor. The house is over 100 years old but in great condition - bathrooms, appliances and cable TV all work just fine. The bedrooms and mattresses are good and with the silence and cool night breezes, we all slept like babies! The living/dining area is spacious and all 5 adults (of varying ages) were very comfortable there. If we get back to Maine and Bass Terre some day, we will definitely take our dogs - there's a huge garage attached to the house that works if they're wet or need to be confined while you're out and about. The owners provided an excellent list of restaurants and activities that we used daily to plan our outings. Acadia National Park is the highlight and we spent several days exploring different parts of the park - including the top of Cadillac Mountain, Loop Drive along the rocky shore, the popovers at Jordan Pond and several hikes around lakes. We found Bar Harbor to be a crowded tourist trap so we wandered through some of the smaller fishing village shops and restaurants. Southwest Harbor, Somesville and Northeast Harbor are all charming villages. We highly recommend seeing Asticou Gardens! But most of all, we enjoyed returning to Bass Terre in the evening and watching the sun set."
