  • Wonderful, Welcoming House

    "I can't say enough great things about this beautiful gem near Acadia National Park. The owner has gone out of her way to make it welcoming and enjoyable for visitors. The kitchen is more than well equipped; there are two full refrigerators and an empty pantry in the center that proved incredibly convenient for us to store the groceries we bought. We enjoyed using the puzzles in the living room, which has a large table and fireplace. Each room has a ceiling fan and the bathrooms were perfect. There is a pretty flower garden and yard, and the nearest Park entrance is not far away. We also found the location to be very convenient to Bar Harbor where we could use a less traveled approach. The one thing you should know, is that even though there are 4 lovely bedrooms (each with a hamper and empty dressers) 3 of the bedrooms are accessed through each other. The bedroom on the third floor with 4 single beds can only be reached through a bedroom with a queen bed which is accessed from the bedroom with a double bed. We were three couples and it worked out fine for us. I would definitely choose to stay here again the next time I visit Acadia."

  • What a Wonderful, Comfortable Place

    "This cottage is in such a beautiful setting you almost hate to leave. And when you do you don't have to go very far. The causeway at the end of the semi-private lane lured us down there morning and evening every day to watch the tide flow in and out of Norwood Cove. The heart of Southwest Harbor with its restaurants and shops is an easy walk away. Beautiful Bass Harbor is just down the road. As mentioned earlier, the house has everything you need from cooking gear to spices to laundry detergent and paper goods. It has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. It has nice towels and sheets and very good beds. The owner's book was full of great suggestions, and we took advantage of their ideas almost every day. The Knollette is not a fancy place, but it is a very accommodating place. We loved it from the moment we first saw it. The four of us Acadia first-timers agree that Southwest Harbor and the Knollette is the place to be on Mount Desert. We will be back."

  • Great Getaway Home

    "I stayed here with my wife and another couple during September of 2014. We loved how secluded the home was, the beautiful view off the back porch, and the open layout of the house. It was very clean and the large television in the living room was a wonderful addition as we were able to watch movies in the evening. We loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom as it made getting ready in the mornings much easier. We saw a fox walking around in the backyard on our first morning and enjoyed the wildlife that flourishes in the woods around the home. Just a couple of negatives: the internet wifi is over cellular, so we were really limited in how much we could download (we would have been charged extra for anything over 2 GB of data). I understand the limitations of high speed internet in seclusion, but we were disappointed because we had planned on streaming Netflix in the evenings. Not a huge deal, though. Finally, the downstairs doesn't appear to be heated. Perhaps I'm wrong about that, but we certainly couldn't find a way to heat it. This is problematic if you want to use the other queen bed in the house and the weather is chilly (as it was on our visit). We made due with the one queen and one double bed, but it would have been nice to be able to use the two queens. Overall we had a lovely experience and I would highly recommend this property with the two caveats listed above. It's a beautiful and relaxing place to stay."

  • Perfect!

    "The Blue Rose Cottage was exactly as described and perfect for our stay. Very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Location was great- just a short walk to everything. We had wonderful weather and were able to fully enjoy being outside. We love Bar Harbor and the park; it is such a beautiful place."
