Secluded gem in Bar Harbor
This property was a wonderful place for the two of us and another couple. It was fully and comfortably furnished with everything we needed. The owner was easy to work with and gave good directions and advice on places to explore, places to eat and activities. We enjoyed coming back every evening and relaxing. There is also a wonderful screened in porch that was great for coffee early in the morning. I would recommend this listing without any reservations.
Richard and Rhonda with their guest were wonderful renters. Very considerate and easy to work with.
Cute, Quiet cottage with lovely owner
Our family of three enjoyed out visit to the Starfish Cottage and loved Acadia NP. Craig is absolutely lovely and is very eager to make our stay wonderful. Living room has large screen TV and good selection of DVDs with big couch. Kitchen is well stocked and we ate all our meals at the house. There is even a reasonable small blender. The upstairs has two small bedrooms with queen beds. Linens and bed sheets are nice quality and there are extra blankets around. One of the bedrooms is tight and does require you to squeeze around to the far side of the bed. It was fine for me since I am small, but would not work for anyone who is larger or has mobility issues. The other bedroom does not have that issue. There is a day bed (I think with trundle) in the landing area at the top of the stairs which would work for children (or smaller adults) but there are no curtains in this room for light sensitive sleeper. There is 1.5 baths which is great. The washer/dryer worked well and was nice going home with mostly clean laundry. All appliance are in great condition. The decorating of the house is adorable. Easy access to both sides of MDI Acadia NP. We loved the location. Would definitely stay here again.
Pristine property with easy access to Acadia.
We rented the Starfish Cottage for a week excursion to Acadia with my husband and two kids (aged 12 and 16). We arrived at Craig and Ellen's beautiful home which is immaculate and tastefully decorated with a simple, beach house decor. Craig and I had spoken a few times before our trip and he was generous in his advice about the park and the trails we mustn't miss. The quiet private road was perfect for getting away from it all. The outdoor shower was a treat- what a wonderful way to relax after a long day of activity! The kitchen was well-stocked and easy to prepare meals in - all new appliances. Craig offered us the use of his bikes which we used to bike on the carriage trails (not to be missed). All in all, a great cottage for our family in a great location.
I might add that Jane , Jay and her family were immaculate guests. They took advantage of the park with great hiking, biking, kayaking, sightseeing. They took advantage of what Acadia/Bar Harbor/ MDI can offer them. They came out invigorated. We would have them back anytime!

Lovely vacation home in superb location
We enjoyed a most wonderful stay at Craig and Ellen's vacation home. They were friendly and gracious since our first conversation. The house it's a bright and beautiful space nestled in a peaceful and quiet community. Location is just perfect for Bar Harbor, Acadia Mountain and much more. Everything in the house is very well thought of, specially the beds which were incredibly comfortable; with soft and crisp fresh linens. The kitchen has everything you will need. If you like to cook, make sure you visit the triple chick farm nearby. Simply put, Staying here was a pure delight.
Our guest Mylene and Jorge were exceptional. They loved the local hiking and the natural beauty of the Maine Coast. I wish they would come back again!
