"We just returned from an awesome Maine vac and staying at the NortherNest was perfect in every way. As everyone else has commented, the owners have thought of everything possible to give their renters the over and beyond treatment.
*Clean and inviting home that has everything well thought out.. A breakfast nook, deck seating, fenced in grassy area and gated deck for the dogs. Lovely decor. Every tool and kitchen and bathroom supplies.
* Acadia Park pass plus surrounding area info
* Beautiful view of bay from the home. Plus plentiful gardens with fresh veggies and herbs! We made fresh salads...lettuce, beets, carrots, cukes, tomatoes, squash...to name a few! Wonderful!
* Private beach- our dogs loved to roam and have fun every day. Found some sea glass and a star fish. Saw a sea. Gorgeous views, peaceful and serene. Kayaks were available to use also.
* Location was great. 10-15 min to Bar Harbor. Acadia Park, Ellsworth, SW Harbor and other small towns within close proximity.
* Restaurants and shopping galore...too many to choose from. Paddy's, Side Street Cafe in Bar Harbor were great. Also 2 Cats Inn & Cafe for breakfast.
* Must do- Be the first to witness the sun rise in the USA on Cadillac Mnt. It was really windy and cold but worth it...dress accordingly in Oct, worth seeing! Acadia National Park...Sand Beach, small but beautiful, saw an eagle there. The trail there is awesome, you will pass Thunder Hole also.
I'm sure I am forgetting many other suggestions but I just wanted to let any future renters know, this place is a gem of a place. Thanks Julee and Pete for making our vac a perfect one!"

"We stayed at this beautiful cabin the week of August 29th-September 5th 2015. Every bit of our stay was truly wonderful, we could not have asked for more. This cabin is even more beautiful in person, just steps from the water. The rocky beach was perfect for our young children to explore the tide pools and find sea life everyday. We enjoyed watching the lobster boats every morning while having coffee on either of the two decks, the moonlight on the water in the evenings, campfires, and watching the lighthouse flicker in the distance....just perfection. There is no better location than this. Bob was so kind, welcoming and accommodating. It was so helpful when he sent a map of the area before our arrival, taking the time to suggest certain points of interest to visit. This was our first time visiting the area and we would have never known where to start there is so much to see and do! There is also a journal for visitors to write in. Our first night we had a great time reading what past guests wrote. This gave us direction with what to see and do too! Bar Harbor and the main part of Acadia is about a 45 minute drive. We spent two days exploring that area. It was beautiful, but we truly enjoyed the quiet and seclusion of the Schoodic side of Acadia and beautiful Corea, Winter Harbor and Birch Harbor. It was like finding a hidden gem, with all the beauty you can imagine, but without the crowds. Everything is taken care of here for you as a guest. I highly recommend staying here, especially if you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful place to unwind. You will not be disappointed. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we simply cannot wait to come back!"

"If the wonders of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park are your idea of a great vacation then this house is the perfect base. We (my wife, me, an our two daughters in their 20's) just returned from a week there. First, Northeast Harbor is quiet, lovely, and has a magnificent harbor and marina; it's well-situated for all that MDI has to offer. Secondly, the house really could not be better, especially for a family of four: it is both stylish and quite comfortable. The owners really put a lot of care into its design and upkeep -- both the interior and the grounds. I think this may be about the best house we have ever rented and it certainly reflects the owners' obvious love for it."

"Rocko's Cottage was a perfect VRBO for our two week stay in Bar Harbor. Walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants downtown and only a few minutes from Acadia. The cottage is clean, quiet and stocked with everything we needed to feel at home. Off street parking was a plus. Thank you for providing such a wonderful home for our annual Bar Harbor visit."
