"My husband and I spent a week at the Knollette and it was absolutely perfect. The house itself is very well-appointed - comfortable, attractive, cozy, with everything we needed. It was a great place to come home to after canoeing, hiking, and eating lobster (LOTS of lobster). The size and space were perfect for the two of us and all our gear (including bike and canoe). And the location is spot on. The house itself, located in a wooded section of a dead-end road near the causeway, feels very private, but it is within easy walking distance of Beal's Lobster Pier (did I mention lobster?) as well as the great restaurants in Southwest Harbor. It was close to all the places we wanted to hike and paddle, and the ability to walk to town for dinner and ice cream made every evening so relaxing. Really, the perfect vacation rental."

"I stayed here with my boyfriend in June for 9 days. I echo the peace and quiet sentiments. If you traveled one way you had access to the Beech Mountain Trails. The other direction offered a short drive to rent canoes on Long Pond. The location of the house is fantastic. Only 15 minutes to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and less for surrounding villages like Southwest Harbor, Bass Harbor, Northwest Harbor etc. The drive to Bangor was only 45 minutes and we took a couple of road trips just to go exploring. There was no shortage of places to hike, walk, canoe, kayak, climb and you could get right out of the car and touch the ocean on multiple occasions. A photographer's dream.
The house itself is spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked with essentials for cooking, and the living area warm and cozy and open. Perfect for visiting while preparing meals. The bedrooms were perfect with comfortable beds and plenty of space. We even unpacked our suitcases into the dressers provided. It truly felt like home. John and Priscilla were lovely hosts and offered wonderful advice on things to do and traveling times.
We purchased groceries in Southwest Harbor and also went to the Beech Hill Farm Stand where there was a lovely selection of fresh and homemade goods. Perfect for a quick run or for a big shop. People were so friendly and we interacted with many locals.
Overall, this place is fantastic and highly recommended for a laid back wonderful Maine vacation. I couldn't recommend this place more. We will definitely be back!"

"This small suite is perfect for one or two people. The king bed allows for a wonderful night of rest and the fully updated, equipped kitchen is perfect for making meals at 'home.' There is a nice little deck off of the bedroom, allowing for a little place to sit and relax. The suite is extremely clean with no details missed. Additionally, the location is perfect for exploring any part of the island."

"Acadia has always been one of my favorite places, so it was a treat to bring my family for their first visit. Northeast Harbor has just the right balance of quietness, quaintness, friendliness, and ease of living after spending days exploring and hiking. The park and the other side of the island were both easily accessible. Town is just a couple of blocks away with everything you need, including a couple of places with great food and baked goods. The larger grocery store in Bar Harbor is only 15 minutes away. This brightly colored, comfortable and well-equipped cottage was the perfect place to call home. We loved the timber framing, the large kitchen, the spacious rooms, and especially the covered porch & outdoor eating area where we could linger over breakfast and morning coffee. The owners, who were onsite, were extremely hospitable and helpful with anything we needed, including recommendations for places a little off the beaten path. Many thanks to the owners for making our visit to Acadia such a special one with their hospitality and friendship. We hope to be back for a longer visit next time!"
