A Wonderful Time!
"We returned again to our favorite escape location. Hawkweed Cottage has always been a great escape. We celebrated our 46 year Anniversary while we were there. We love watching the lobster boats leave in the morning, and return hours later. It was really magical when we were socked in by fog, and could barely see the boats as they coasted by. Dinners in Camden are always perfect, and time with our Daughter and Grandson......priceless!"

"My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at this cottage. It is perfect for two people looking for a home base to virtually anywhere on Mt. Desert Island. The kitchen was very well equipped with anything a traveler may need (the coffee filters were particularly appreciated). We found the patio to be quite lovely in the morning and a nice way to rest weary legs at the end of the day. A few items that are important to note for future visitors. First, the cottage is on Rt. 102, which means there is some car noise from 6:00 am until early evening. Rt. 102 has a limited shoulder and is not suitable for safe running/walking, in my opinion. Second, the bedroom faces east, making it rather bright in the morning even with a shade and blinds. The final point is not related to the cottage though worth noting. Bass Harbor is remotely located relative to the rest of the island. Southwest Harbor is less than 5 minutes away, but Bar Harbor can be as much as 45 minutes with traffic. Overall, a great place for a couple looking to get away from it all and take in the pleasures of the quiet side (be sure to go over to Seawall with a bottle of wine and some cheese, it's totally legal!)."

"My husband and I rented this house for a week with our 9 year old. We were very pleased with the house and the amenities - it is very clean and bathrooms/kitchen appear to be new. The house had ample linens and kitchen supplies for our needs. If you enjoy watching TV, there are new flat screens in all rooms.
The house is 1.6 miles from the lighthouse at Ft. William Park and there is a off road path that you can take from the house to the park. We walked or rode our bikes there daily. There is a nice beach at that park as well (make sure you can carry out garbage as there are no cans at the park). The house is also not too far from downtown Portland and Old Port.
The views from the house are incredible, beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Our 9 year old had fun climbing on the rocks near the house and looking for crabs.
We would recommend the house especially if you're looking for and enjoy being that close to the water."

Convenient, charming and well equipped base in a beautiful location
"The property was well equipped (from toys for children to games to laundry detergent!) with plenty of space for our party of 7 (2 children, 5 adults). The location is fantastic: right in the heart of Bar Harbor but on a quiet street a 2 minute walk from the supermarket. Acadia National Park is a quick drive/cycle away. We loved sitting out on the porch and in the rear decked area. The owner gave some excellent recommendations of things to do in the area so do ask!"
