About Helen Smallidge
My husband and I grew up in Pretty Marsh and then lived away for most of our adult life. We always came back to visit our families and to spend our summers here in Pretty Marsh. My father build this cabin for my husband Niffie and me and our three daughters. We have shared many fun nights, parties and memories here and now hope that others can make their own memories. It was so nice to come back and slow down. From swimming in the ponds and lakes, boating, hiking and picking blueberries and having my mother bake her famous blueberry pie. We love the location of Pretty Marsh and being closer to the quiet side of the Island but still just a short drive to the other towns. Hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we did for so many years. Helen

Nice cottage close to everything in Acadia
The cottage was a great place to stay! It was very comfortable and well appointed. We spent our days hiking and exploring Acadia, Bar Harbor and enjoying Maine in the Fall. The Electric blankets were a must at this time of year. There were space heaters and a small wood stove but no fixed heating system.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent again when we go back!!
Check-in was super easy. The cottage was just what we were looking for. Spacious and clean. Great location. We stayed here during an Acadia and Bar Harbor getaway. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a steak and lobster dinner "at home" as well!
Very adorable well equipped spcious cottage
I visited the cottage 8/19-8/26. This a very relaxing peaceful place. The cottage itself is a very quaint and adorable place to disconnect and just enjoy time away. Very bright, very spacious. I would definitely visit again.
The cottage was spacious four family of four; so much so that we did not have to use the upstairs room. It was well stocked and furnished. All we need was ourselves and our meals. It was quiet and situated such that finding our way was not a hassle. We are looking forward to planning a return trip.
The house was in a good location and met all our needs.
Cute cabin , great price. Would highly recommend it
nice cottage no amenities
well the cottage is lovely, very clean, the advertisement said tv, dvd, and wifi, perfect for the kids for off hours, well we had a tv no channels available, we had wifi but poor signal kept kicking you out, contacted owner was told to reboot, multiple times, so really bad, and only one person can access email at a time, you can't do anything else, it was buffering, I couldn't book anything on line as it kept coming up with an alert that it was not safe,, or the process would completely shut down again.. the dvd player well we went out and spent $50 on dvds to entertain the kids for the quiet time, BUT the dvd which is built into the tv, would freeze, 1hr into the movie, we had loads of outdoor activities so was out most of the time, but that hour for a movie was ruined, we also had a situation of an outside disturbance couldn't reach the owner so called the police, they were awesome believe it to be wildlife, but at 11pm at night it was scary, we have a great video of this huge bird maybe a turkey vulture, and a wild pig in the back...
overall the cottage has everything, but no amenities as described for internet and tv access at all, even buying our own dvds didn't help because we had no way of playing them......
I was told their is no cable in the area which is not true as we used to live on the street 30 years ago and had satellite, so it is accessible. and that house was more secluded.
Pretty Marsh is close to sea, lake and mountains. It has a boat landing, Bartlett's Island Landing, where sea kayak tours are offered daily. The company operates out of Bar Harbor. Also, National Park canoe and Kayak Rentals is 2 miles down the road. They offer paddle boards, canoes and kayaks at the head of Long Pond. A part of Acadia National Park is just up the road offering access to park roads (cars allowed), a ocean side picnic area, and hiking mountains. Bar Harbor is a 15-20 drive and in the summer months there is a free bus service, Island Explorer, with pick up location in Somesville. Most areas on the Island are a 20 minute or less of a drive from Pretty Marsh.
