"A smile of delight spread across my face as I walked up to the front door - you immediately see through the house to the view of the water. The Down East Cottage definitely exceeded mine and my husband's expectations. As others have stated, the pictures do not do it justice! We loved the wooded setting. Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was provided. The home was so relaxing it was hard to leave each day. The location is secluded yet wonderfully situated for easy access to the Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park area. It was such fun to explore all the parts of the island - quaint harbor towns like Southwest and Northeast Harbor. We loved hiking a few of the trails in the park - the weather was gorgeous! I think we had a lobster roll just about every day. Kayaking right outside the backdoor was a lot of fun - these were part of the house also. One morning when we were sitting by the water, it was low tide and a couple of veteran clammers came across digging and putting their clams in the buckets. The people were so friendly in the area - we
stopped to buy fresh lobster on the way to the house and upon hearing we were going back into town to buy corn and potatoes, they invited us to help ourselves to their garden! Watching the sunset by the fire pit was a neat way to end our days - the last night we made s'mores. Shirley and George couldn't have been more helpful as we made our arrangements for the trip. Lots of tips and pointers about fun and interesting things to do while we were there. All in all, our trip to the Down East cottage was everything we had hoped it would be and then some!"

"A New England lake with loons is what we wanted and Loon Cottage was located just off the main road to Acadia at the north end of Toddy Pond. The cottage comfortably provided our needs during four nights and Toddy Pond was a perfect setting for sunsets and morning kayaking. The fall color was post card brilliant and though it was late in the season we both saw and heard loons. When we chose to leave the lake, the location provided convenient access to Acadia and surrounding attractions. Highlights were the sunrise from atop Cadillac Mountain, a boat from Northeast Harbor to Little Cranberry Island, lunch at Jordon Pond House, climbing the rocks around Thunder Hole, and selfies in front of Stephen King's house in nearby Bangor on the one gray day. We were well fortified with the freshest seafood every day washed down with plenty of local craft beer, for variety, the Cellar in Ellsworth was an unexpected foodie delight and Pat's Pizza was worth all it's hype. Our hosts were wonderfully responsive and I only wish we could have met them in person. I recommend Loon Cottage for anyone wishing to experience dramatic beauty of coastal Maine and the tranquility of quaint Down East. Cheers!"

"Was perfect long weekend stay in Acadia for our group with a couple small dogs. Echo the spectacular views from the master bedroom and living room/deck level, tranquil setting, and convenient location to everywhere on the island. Kitchen was very well equipped, fireplace was delightful and overall was spacious for a large group with multiple lounge/deck areas. Would certainly return."

"A group of us, about 13 artist and photographers, have rented Sealight for several years. The house is spacious, equipped with the latest appliances, lots of areas to sit and chat or simply escape for a little quiet time. Even on a cloudy day, the rooms are light and airy due to the large windows and French doors that overlook the bay. Sealight is perfect vacation getaway with surroundings that energize an artist’s creativity. I highly recommend this rental."
