  • What a Wonderful, Comfortable Place

    "This cottage is in such a beautiful setting you almost hate to leave. And when you do you don't have to go very far. The causeway at the end of the semi-private lane lured us down there morning and evening every day to watch the tide flow in and out of Norwood Cove. The heart of Southwest Harbor with its restaurants and shops is an easy walk away. Beautiful Bass Harbor is just down the road. As mentioned earlier, the house has everything you need from cooking gear to spices to laundry detergent and paper goods. It has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. It has nice towels and sheets and very good beds. The owner's book was full of great suggestions, and we took advantage of their ideas almost every day. The Knollette is not a fancy place, but it is a very accommodating place. We loved it from the moment we first saw it. The four of us Acadia first-timers agree that Southwest Harbor and the Knollette is the place to be on Mount Desert. We will be back."

  • Quiet respite

    "This cottage is exactly as pictured, or better. I was seeking a quiet haven to unplug (no wifi) and relax from city stress - and, pulling in, I knew I'd found the place. One can kayak right off the front yard (we used our klepper). Gail let us use a canoe (hers). There is not a soul around save the occaisonal lobsterboat in the distance. No noise. A few eagles and seals. We didn't venture out for dinner (living in Europe, we get good food) - but who needs to with a view like that! The sunsets were beautiful. We did cook on the grill and unwind with a glass of wine on the enclosed porch overlooking the bay. The galley kitchen has a granite countertop and the photo doesn't do it justice. The local wine & cheese shop is actually well appointed, a nice surprise. The cottage is very clean, also a relief as I am picky. Gail is a very caring owner. She loves her home and having people enjoy it, it shows in her attention to detail. Several wildflower bouquets awaited us! And a chest of blankets for cool days on the porch. The drive to Mount Desert Island is about 40 min if one so desires to venture out. Seeing sunrise on Mt Cadillac on a clear day (get there 30' prior for best colours), hiking Gorham trail or seeing Schoodic Point were nice. But Quiet Cove has nothing to envy from Acadia. In sum, with its isolation and enclosed private porch, it's better (no people, no bugs). (This stay prompted my husband to dig about close properties for sale). I strongly recommend this place for those seeking a nice, quiet, authentic piece of Maine nature and not the ticky tack of tourist traps. You will not regret it."

  • FAMILY GATHERING

    "We have vacationed all over the beautiful Maine coast many times over the past 30 years. Mt. Desert Island is our particular favorite due to the astounding beauty, tranquility, wildlife viewing, and diverse activities available. My working life has enabled me to visit coastal Maine many times, so Maine always stands foremost in my memory when choosing a vacation destination.This year we required a very special location so our far flung family could gather together. On paper FJORD HOME met every requirement we envisioned. The reality is that FJORD HOME exceeded all our expectations. It is the perfect vacation home. The owner could not be more gracious and accommodating. The house is outfitted with every amenity. The other reviews on this site mention many of the outdoor opportunities available, and they are all seconded. However one one could spend a week alone simply exploring the hiking trails in Acadia NP, not to mention the cycling available on the 55 miles on “carriage roads”."

  • Lovely Vintage Farm House

    "To us "out of towners" from Pennsylvania this house seemed like the quintessential Maine farm house. Wonderfully updated with all the conveniences and comforts of a cozy home yet still retaining the charm of an earlier time,...beautifully restored wooden floor boards, and maintaining the original architecture were just some of the features that made this farm house so special,.. we loved our stay! Thank you for making us feel so welcome, comfortable and at home. Highly recommended!"
