                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you for your kind words! It is always a pleasure to have you stay at Aisling...

                                                                      Wonderful family vacation getaway

                                                                      Craig D.

                                                                      My wife, three children and I went for a week this summer. The draw of Acadia National Park, the ocean, and all it has to offer were the reasons we love coming to this location. The rental house was small but comfy. We needed heat for chilly nights and the owners were so helpful in getting the gas stove in the living room going for us. The cottage was clean and well equipped. The gas grill was the only issue I had, but I bought a lighter and got it going to cook out. Many delicious restaurants nearby, one you can walk to at the end of the street. We also walked to the ferry and had a beautiful boat ride to the close island and ate a picnic there. You can bike to the Bass Harbor Lighthouse and plenty of room to play frisbee and ball in the side yard. We had a fun time and the owners were so helpful. Thurstons Lobster Pound was on the other side of town, and had the most delicious lobster dinners and views of lobster boats on their moorings. I recommend this cottage for a quiet break but it is only a short drive or a LLBean van ride into Bar Harbor.

                                                                      A beautiful place in a beautiful place!

                                                                      Brenda P.Frazeysburg, Ohio

                                                                      My husband and myself loved this cottage. It was so nice to come back to this nice, quiet cottage after a long day in Acadia and Bar Harbor. The restaurants in town all had excellent food and service.

                                                                      The cottage was exactly as described, clean and neat with beautiful fresh cut flowers. We would happily stay at Aisling Cottage again.

                                                                      Cozy and Comfortable Cottage

                                                                      Neat, clean, and airy cottage in a convenient Bass Harbor location. Kitchen amenities are all present, as is convenient laundry area. Second floor bath and bedrooms are open and comfortable with small deck off the master bedroom. Bass Harbor right down the hill, and the Bass Harbor light about one mile away. Quiet setting with nice gardens. Victoria and Dave were very attentive if needed. We will definitely return for another very peaceful and relaxing week.

                                                                      Wonderful Maine Cottage

                                                                      Liz J.Florissant, Missouri

                                                                      If you want to be on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, this is a great place to unpack for your stay. Walking distance to the ferry, to restaurants, and boat tours. The owners are right next door, so if you needed anything all you had to do was call. The cottage was very clean and well-maintained. There are flowers all around making it so inviting to just sit outside and relax with a good book. If I ever go back to Maine I would try and rent this cottage again. So peaceful!

                                                                      Clean, cozy, comfortable cottage

                                                                      carolyn m.

                                                                      The owners put their heart and soul into this cottage and it was evident as soon as we walked through the door and saw a personal note and fresh flowers on the table to welcome us. The cottage is simply but beautifully decorated. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything necessary to make home cooked meals, the bedrooms are comfortable and restful with beautiful linens. The bathroom is large, pretty and contains fluffy towels. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching butterflies flitter from flower to flower in the gorgeous gardens while our children practiced their instruments on the balcony off the master bedroom. The free bus stopped right in front of the cottage to whisk us off to our daily adventures. The owners are delightful, generous, informative people. They lent us their great bikes to ride the carriage roads and a lobster pot to cook delicious, gigantic lobsters we purchased from Rich's down the road. The pictures depicted on the website are exacly right. The cottage was even better than we expected or imagined. Thank you Victoria and David for allowing us to have a peaceful, wonderful vacation. We'll be back next August - already counting the days!

                                                                      P.S. I don't where the person was staying that gave the negative review because it certainly was not at Aisling Cottage!
