"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."

"This house is truly a favorite of mine. This was an overdue return visit since I kept remembering the view and lovely town and have been wishing to return. And it didn't disappoint!
Every time I walk into the living room, every bit of tension just melts away when I see the wall of windows with that black blue water peeking through the trees. I can only imagine that someone must have planned the grounds perfectly to provide lovely yet natural looking flowers, shrubs, and flora and skillfully placed trees that allow for an incredible view without sacrificing privacy. Just a perfect location since it is only moments to Southwest Harbor yet you feel like you are a million miles from everything. Great star watching at night by the way.
In my previous review, I cited how well stocked the house is, and if anything, I think the house is even better stocked than last time; Tons of kitchen utensils, cookware, dishes, even books and games. It also has good, reliable internet. The owners are as helpful as can be. This place is very versatile and perfect for a family get away since it is kid friendly with lots of chairs for seating at the huge granite kitchen Island or the long harvest style dining table, or great for a romantic getaway or a girls weekend. I do like the fact it is so nice and quiet but yet Bar Harbor is only a short drive away."

"This "camp" is in a private location right on the water. Loons calling, lake views, stars @ night. The deck is perfect spot for enjoying your lobster. The location was a great base for our explores to Schoodic peninsula, Acadia National park & quaint historic villages of Stonington & Castine. Coastal Maine is so scenic with my camera logging 250 pics! The camp is somewhat dated in its furnishings, but we found queen bed very comfortable and the cabin kitchen is well stocked for your needs. Lots of character in this place. We found owner very polite and thorough in settling us in for our stay. We want to come back for "leaf peeping" as they call it in Maine!!"

"We spent a week at the Patten Bay Chalet at the end of August. I have to admit that we have rented houses before but the Chalet was more than I expected. First of all I felt it was in a very peaceful, quiet area. We hardly saw anyone else when we were there. It is also convenient to town as Ellsworth, for groceries and restaurants, which was 5 to 10minutes by car away.
We spent a few days down by the beach. The beach was shale and very private. I think we were the only ones using it during the week there. The kids spent hours looking for sea glass on the beach and were even able to do some wading/swimming in the water. The grill worked great and the fire pit was added bonus. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows and making smores a couple of nights while we were there.
Inside the Chalet the kitchen was very up-to-date with modern appliances. Every kitchen tool, pot/pan and dish was available so all you needed to bring was food. We spent many of the nights and mornings reading reading in the open family room and sunroom. The kids enjoyed the downstairs as there own space. They watched movies from the available collection which was a fair size. They also spent time playing games from the game closet.
The owners were very helpful when booking the trip and we even had the opportunity to meet Mac.
Overall, we all enjoyed our vacation in Maine. The kids are already asking to go back and I would have no hesitation to going back to the Chalet. I wholeheartedly give the Chalet two thumbs up."
