"The love shack sounded kind of silly at first especially as we were coming for our honymoon. There is something to the name though of that we can be sure. The owners have re done the "shack" and frankly the term no longer applies. Everything about it is perfect. There is not a square inch of the place that was not re done. The kitchenett is a true kitchennet. There is a college sized fridge, microwave, coffee pot, and a sink in the bathroom. For the two of us we were able to make breakfeast sandwiches, lunches, and several dinners there.
The owners provide bikes and sea kayaks which we took advantage of. (when they say go at high tide they mean it.) They also provided maps and general travel information regrding the area. They are pet friendly as well and our dogs really enjoyed the stay. The location was perfect for day trips into the various parts of Acadia as well as to Bar harbor. Bar harbor proper was roughly a 40 min drive. The scodhic point protion of acadia is practically right next door and offers plenty to do in its own right. Bring plenty of memory cards for the camera because you cant take a bad picture. The owners have a nice dock area with a bench that overlooks the harbor. Very nice spot to watch the sunset with a cigar. All in all I will say that everything was as described or better and the owners were most accommodating. My only negitive would be the sluggish internet but in this neck of the woods just having a constant connection is a victory."

"My family and I really enjoyed our weekend stay! This was our first time visiting Maine during the peak foliage season, and we were not disappointed! As soon as we arrived, the kids hit the nearby playground. The home was very clean, and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were the right size for our large family. It felt like home away from home! We spent one day at Acadia National Park (about 45 mins away), and really enjoyed the autumn color. Schoodic Point was a favorite for all of us, and was only a short drive away from this home.
We would definitely recommend this home to our family and friends!"

"My husband and I stayed at the beautifully furnished cottage in Winter Harbor, Maine during our recent trip to Acadia. We chose to stay in Winter Harbor because it was away from the tourist traffic in Bar Harbor. You can take the ferry to Bar Harbor or take a drive there if you like to see the other sights. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and even has a pot to cook your lobsters in. The Winter Harbor Lobster Co-op is just down the street, where you can purchase fresh whole lobster or just the meat during the week. The cottage had the most comfortable bed, and was complete with a fluffy down comforter. There were little vases of flowers from the garden left by the bedside and on the table where we ate our meals. During the summer months there is a farmers market in town once a week, where you can purchase Maine blueberries, fresh vegetables, homemade bread, and other Maine products from the area. There is also an IGA, postoffice, art galleries, and library in town for your other needs. During our stay there was a celebration of the arts going on in town. We attended a gallery opening, and we also got to go to the final presentation of the summer's art program. It was a lovely local performance where we saw a steel drum band perform, and got to view all the art created during the summer programs. My husband and I will be returning to Winter Harbor, next time we plan on doing some kayaking. We loved our stay at the cottage in Winter Harbor."

"My teenage daughter and I found this to be a perfect place to spend time together. This lovingly converted barn captured my daughter's imagination the moment she spotted it on line. The property was just as shown, very clean and lacking for nothing we could need in bath or kitchen. The loft bedroom and open floor plan worked beautifully for us allowing her to sleep late and me to enjoy browsing the "library". Felt very peaceful to be on Schoodic Peninsula where we enjoyed nature hikes and the gorgeous scenery. Easy drive to Bar Harbor for whale watching which was fantastic. This was a perfect place to stay rain or shine."
