Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • DeCo

    "A delightfully simple and comfortable cottage. This was our second stay. We felt like we had arrived "home" when we checked-in and at the end of every day of adventure on the Island. You can tell that this vacation home is well-loved by it's owners and we share that sentiment. The location is a short walk to the ocean and downtown. A little longer walk into Acadia or a short drive to the park. The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood filled with delightful people."

  • A Gorgeous Property and Fantastic Experience!

    "The Down East Cottage is an absolutely lovely home and exceeded our expectations in every way for our family vacation in Maine...the setting is more breathtaking than the photos capture! The cottage is pristine and is the perfect location to access MDI/Acadia and we also had a fantastic experience right around the corner at Lamoine beach finding starfish, quahog and razor clams, eels, and more...our kids had a blast! We enjoyed making s'mores and sitting by the fire pit, playing family games, listening to records, and watching movies after long, action-packed excursions in Acadia, Bar Harbor and beyond. Other favorites included discovering the Bar Harbor Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, popovers and hiking at Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Lighthouse/Trail, Thurston's Lobster Pound (wow!), shopping in Southwest Harbor, and Echo Lake/Cadillac Mountain adventures. We created countless memories at this lovely home in Maine. Shirley and George are extremely responsive owners, easy to communicate with, and extremely thoughtful as they even had a welcome gift to greet us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience everything Bar Harbor/Acadia has to offer, while simultaneously enjoying the privacy and solace of a secluded, beautiful waterfront property."

  • Delightful in-town cottage

    "We found this house to be very comfortable. It is extremely close to the main street in Northeast Harbor, where there is a grocery, bakery, cafe, and plenty of shops to explore. The bus to Acadia and Bar Harbor runs right past the house. The house itself is bright and airy with high ceilings. It has a lovely deck and we ate outside several times. The beds were extremely comfortable with high quality linens. The layout is a little interesting, with one bedroom upstairs and the others downstairs, which allowed for a private hideaway. The kitchen, though smallish in terms of work surfaces, was well equipped with decent knives and ample glassware, dishes and pots/pans. The bathrooms are a bit old-fashioned (the kids got a kick out of the separate hot/cold water faucets)."

  • Comfortable, full-stocked cottage with wonderful views

    "My husband, 11-year-old daughter and I spent a week at the end of August at this cottage. We had compared a lot of houses on Mount Desert Island before selecting this one. We were not disappointed. The cottage is spotlessly clean, well-stocked and comfortable. The master is a large size. The second bedroom is cozy and has a terrific view. The deck was our favorite place to relax after a busy day of hiking/sailing/rock-climbing. It is about a 15-20 minute drive into Bar Harbor. Very peaceful. The washer/dryer was convenient. The kitchen is fully stocked. It even had a coffee grinder! We have rented houses before and never had such a nicely stocked kitchen. Wi-Fi is good. The upstairs great room was a great place to relax and watch TV in the evening. It was removed enough that it did not disturb anyone who wanted to turn in early. The listing description and photos are accurate. Our hosts were gracious, friendly and helpful. Their recommendations and suggestions made our stay better. They recommended the Seafood Ketch in Bass Harbor. We enjoyed it so much we went back on our last day in Bar Harbor. I highly recommend this rental."
