"My husband and I wanted a peaceful escape away from noise, a lot of traffic and people. BUT, we wanted to be a reasonable driving distance to get to the places we wanted to be. The oceanfront cottage was perfect for this. It's small, but just the right size for 2 people, quaint and in a very quiet area. Right on the water with plenty of activity to watch. Or, just sit quietly, watch a seal swim by, the birds fish, lobster boats work there floats, kayakers enjoying their time, etc. I personally enjoyed walking the beach and looking for interesting objects or critters stuck in the rocky pools after the tide went out. We could get to Bar Harbor within 40 minutes and then on to Acadia which is a stunning area. Our favorite day was going to Schoodic Point and visiting the mainland portion of Acadia. Very few people there, much quieter and stunning views and sunset from Schoodic Point. Then don't miss the Seafood Stew at the Winkled Pickle. We found the Lobster rolls in Maine over priced in the heavily traveled areas but once out of Bar Harbor, Camden and other well traveled sites prices were more reasonable for most everything. From our cottage we were able to enjoy good food, plenty of shopping, Beautiful sites everywhere and lots and lots to do OR...do nothing. We enjoyed that to and the cottage, lawn and beach offered that. Dick and Ivy were rarely seen and very quiet. We did not even know they were around most of the time. We found them to be excellent hosts, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The neighbor right next door was also nice and stopped by to say hi. We would recommend the cottage for couples who don't have a large budget as it was extremely reasonable for the accommodations we got. Maine is a beautiful place both inland and on the coast and we loved our time there."

"My wife and I stayed for a week and quite simply, everything was perfect! My wife grew up on the ocean and missed smelling the salt air and listening to the waves and sea birds. Sea Meadow provided that an much more. It was a private and relaxing stay. Everything we could have wanted was provided and the cottage is in perfect condition. We had the opportunity to relax when we wanted to, but there are also many things to do and see in the area. All of the local residents are extremely welcoming and we made many friends during our stay! We look forward to returning one day!"

"This lovely house afforded our family a great opportunity to all be together for meals and socializing. There were 17 of us…adults and grown children. During the day family members went off hiking or touring but we would get together for dinners in the huge dinning room. The house is in a very convenient location… minutes from the Park entrance at Seal Harbor and no more than 10 minutes to Jordan Pond House. The back terrace is large and has a million dollar view."

"My sister and I have rented houses all over MDI for the past few years. Sow's Ear is by far one of the best we have rented. The house was clean upon arrival, the kitchen was well stocked with everything to prepare meals, the beds were really comfortable, and there were no plumbing or heating problems. The house and yard were such that the house has lots of privacy and is quiet. There are multiple options for locations around the house to enjoy reading apart from the activities in the living room. The furniture is very comfortable! There's reliable internet and a nice office to work in if you need to. The location is perfect for access to the carriage trails at Brown Gatehouse as well as the Stanley Brook entrance to ANP, Jordan Pond and the Loop Road. The Northeast Harbor/Seal Harbor area has the most beautiful houses on the island, so the drive home to the rental is always a treat. The owners were the most responsive we've had the pleasure of dealing with so far. They are as charming as the house itself. We really enjoyed this rental, and you will too."
