    "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."

  • Memorable Home, Memorable Vacation!

    "This home was the best! It really was everything we could want in a vacation home. The teens were having a fit about not going to the beach as usual, so they were a hard sell - but even they said this was one of the best vacations ever. Jennifer was extremely receptive to our questions (even the dumb ones). The house was located in a great spot close to Southwest Harbor. A main grocery store was at the bottom of the hill, and the town was minutes away by car. We were so glad we didn't stay in Bar Harbor - it is a lovely place, and we went there twice, but the crowds - forget it.... Southwest Harbor was quaint and had everything we needed. Good restaurants, ice cream, bike rentals and fairly close to all the places we wanted to visit on the Island. We were two families - we stuck the teens up in the bunk bedroom (top of A-frame). It wasn't until the 3rd day we realized there was a pool table in the basement! The porch which runs the length of the house was just gorgeous, looking out over the woods. There were a few homes up on our road, but you couldn't see them through the forest. The stars were amazing, especially from the hot tub. We were there the 2nd week of July and the weather was great - never had to use the AC, always a breeze... We called the house "our green cabin", but it was far from a cabin! I have done many vacation rentals over the years, and it was so refreshing to stay in a home that was really someone's vacation home - not an investment property with zero personal touches. Fun stuff we did on MDI: rented bikes and road around the ponds, having lunch at Jordan House (we timed the ride with help from bike store in SW Harbor and made reservations outside) - beautiful! We enjoyed sunset atop Cadillac Mt., after enjoying a lobster meal at one of the roadside lobster pounds (near north entrance to park). We spent an afternoon at Echo Lake for a "refreshing" swim. A special highlight was going to Sand Beach on the loop road, views were breathtaking. We took a lunch, left our stuff on the beach and hiked up and around Great Head Trail - a little challenging for some of us, but well worth it. I would highly recommend Eat a Pita restaurant for any meal in SW Harbor. My thanks to our hosts, and should we go Northeast - Downeast again, we will be sure to rent this special home."

  • Lovely home in a spectacular and convenient setting

    "Sea Meadow is a lovely and immaculately kept home, in a spectacular setting on the edge of Blue Hill Bay. The first morning of our stay, a school of Harbour porpoises swam through, close to shore, and throughout our stay, birdlife was abundant. The call of a loon at dusk is an experience not to be missed in this lifetime. Sea Meadow cottage is in a very private location, but only minutes away from the Wooden Boat School in nearby Brooklin, and puts all of the eastern arm of Penobscot Bay within easy reach. It is the nicest vacation rental we have ever stayed in, and we look forward to returning!"

  • Pictures do Not do Justice to This Beautiful Home

    "Our family stayed at Meadowside Cottage this past week. We were in Southwest Harbor for a wedding. Over the weekend we were six adults and one grandchild with a smaller number staying on to enjoy Mr. Desert Island the rest of the time. This house was perfect for us at all times. Looking at the vrbo pictures we were worried the house might be too small, but rented it based on one of the reviews that said the pictures do not do justice to the house. This is so true! The first floor is spacious and light filled. The living room is large with a comfortable sofa and chairs. The dining room is large and the table is comfortable and inviting. The sun room is large and lovely. The kitchen is generously equipped and easy to work in. There is a very nice separate study with easy internet access and a closet full of puzzles, games and videos. The bedrooms, up and down are well furnished. And the back yard is large with a fire pit and a generous herb, vegetable and flower garden that can be used by renters. Meadowside Cottage really is a large house that invites one to rest and relax and feel at home. And the location is convenient to so much. It is five minutes from downtown Southwest Harbor, four minutes to the Seawall Picnic Area, and 5 minutes to the beautiful Ship Harbor hike. Even though we toured Mt. Desert Island in the end we would have been happy to stay in the immediate area a enjoy the hikes We would like to recommend the Common Good Soup Kitchen that is next to the Seawall Motel just a few minutes away. This is a lovely restaurant space with good views of the seawall. A breakfast of oatmeal, coffee and delicious popovers are served from 7:30 to 11:30 on a donation basis. The proceeds go to meals for those in the community who may need food during the off season. It is a warm cheerful experience. The owners were very easy to work with. We had one small leak during a storm and called the housekeeper who lives across the street. She called the handyman who also lives nearby and he came over immediately. All were very pleasant and helpful. This is a cared about and cared for home. We have rented from vrbo owners across the country and can say this is one of the best experiences we have had."
