Charming, cozy cottage - great location!
We have stayed at Little House during our annual trip to Maine for ten years running and plan to stay there again in 2019. The cottage is cozy, in a great location, and well-maintained. We especially enjoy watching the butterflies and hummingbirds in the garden and being able to walk into Southwest Harbor for breakfast and dinner.
Terry and Elena are excellent owners. They make sure that the cottage is well maintained. The cottage is also very clean when we arrive each year. No unpleasant surprises!
We look forward to returning in 2019.
Thank you both so much for the wonderful review and for being the best guests imaginable! We will be honored to have you both visit again next summer!
Elena, Terry and Pip
We will definitely come back to the Little House
This is a charming, well equipped, well situated and very clean house for a beautiful MDI get-away. The owners are terrific and responsive. A unique treat here is to sit in the well tended flower garden - it's a restorative, pastoral setting. We are going back next year for a third time.
Thank you very much, and it is always nice to have guests who really "get" the simple joys of The Little House, and it's unique setting in Southwest Harbor! Look forward to having you back next summer!!!
Peaceful, convenient, and the perfect size for our family of four.
This is our third visit to Acadia, but our first time staying at The Little House. We have two young boys, so the house was the perfect size for us. The boys loved coming “home” at the end of each day to play in the yard with the beautiful garden. It was extremely hot most of the week we were visiting, but the house always had a nice breeze that came through the windows. It was so nice to have the grill to make our own dinners at night and just relax at the end of a busy day. The bed is a full size, which for us felt a bit small since we are used to a king sized bed. The boys slept great in their little room and loved the stars on their bedspreads. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Close in charming cottage
Our second stay at the Little House and we’ll look forward to returning. Easy walk to town, comfortable rooms and a well equipped kitchen. Only wish we had arrived earlier in the season to be able to see the lupines in the meadow.
Fabulous! Perfect! Open and spacious for a two-bedroom. Great location.
We loved this beautiful cottage,! Bright, open and airy with lots of skylights and windows. View of gorgeous gardens and meadow, the little yard has Adirondack chairs, picnic table, and grill. Kitchen very well equipped and open. Close to the town of Southwest Harbor, yet on a private road. Provided lots of information on what to do nearby and some yummy snacks. Not only did they welcome our dog, but even provided a dog bed with a freshly laundered cover. We loved it and hope to come again!
Thanks so much and happy that you all had a good time!
My husband and I had an enjoyable week at The Little House despite the rain and cold weather. The location for our vacation was perfect - a 15 minute walk to Southwest Harbor dining and shops and access to many trailheads via a short car ride. Lots to do and never enough time. Elena's property is beautiful and tranquil. We were able to enjoy the blooming lilacs and our dogs enjoyed romping in the yard. All around a wonderful visit!
Thanks so much for the great review. We really enjoyed having you at The Little House. I was nervous about two dogs, since we usually only allow one, but your two fellows were great, and our Pip definitely made two new friends. Come back any time!
Close to all Acadia National Park activities, and the free Island Explorer bus which will pick you and your bike up for easy travel to the park carriage roads, trails, and Bar Harbor.
