"My husband, son and I had a wonderful time at the Elvin's Chalet. You really do not need to bring anything with you except beach towels and that is TRUE! We spent many of our hours out on the back deck basking in the beautiful view of the harbor. We spent our week crawling all over Mt. Desert island. This was our first time staying on the quiet side, and I have found that Southwest Harbor is one of my new favorites. The chalet is an easy drive to anywhere on the island, and just a 5 minute drive (if that) to the Bass Harbor lighthouse. One early evening, we were able to see 2 little fawns coming up the property! What a nice added touch! The bedrooms are very accommodating, and the bed in the master bedroom was SOOO comfy. My husband and I are still missing the comfy bed, and wonderful breezes that come through the house from the harbor. This rental is a must. The owners are wonderful, and little touches in the house were so thoughtful all over. My 19 year old son was happy there was Wi-Fi, and I was in love with the kitchen and huge dinner table. You will not be disappointed by this chalet. We cannot wait to come back again. Missing Maine already."

"We loved this well-maintained house. It was perfect for 2 families made up of 4 parents and six "kids" aged 25, 23, 21, 21, 18, and 15! The dining room table was long enough to fit all 10 of us for meals and the kitchen was large enough to handle multiple cooks. The house was well stocked with any dishes or pans we needed and had every spice we wanted. The linens were great and the linen room had more towels than we could ever need. The street was quiet while being just a few blocks from the town shops and restaurants. Parking was very limited (about 1.5 cars could fit) but we had no trouble finding parking in the same block. We want to come back!!!"

"My wife and I stayed here with our family and friends (us + 2 other couples) for the last two summers. We spent our days hiking or canoeing and returned most nights to eat dinner together in the dining room with a large picture window overlooking the water. It's a gorgeous property and they just added a new bedroom and bathroom, so it had plenty of space for our group. We look forward to returning to this house on Deer Isle for many summers to come."

"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."
