The house was clean, and well stocked. You will need to bring more paper products and trash bags, but cleaning products are available. Being on the rocky beach was so much fun for the kids, they spent a lot of time looking for crabs. Bring bug spray! Hosts are very nice, and live next door. They leave you in peace, but are there should you have any questions or need recommendations.
This house is wonderful! The kitchen is a dream, beds are comfortable, home is spacious. Mary Ann & Richard were extremely responsive to any request or need. Even though it's on the other side of MDI from Bar Harbour, it is an escape from the crowds. The village of Southwest Harbour is minutes away. Wendell Gilley museum is a must!! Island Cruises with Eric Strauss was the best, most educational cruise we've ever enjoyed! Thurston's Lobster Pound is great. Don't miss staying st this lovely home & enjoying Maine!!
Perfect Vacation Spot
A perfect vacation home for 3 generations from ages 2 1/2 to 82 1/2. Cove House is beautifully situated in a quiet and serene setting. It is conveniently located for hiking. swimming, boating and eating all close to Acadia National Park. The home, true to its photos, is very well maintained, quite comfortable, and affords beautiful views of the ocean from many of its rooms.
The owners, Mary Ann and Richard, were very friendly and helpful with everything and anything one could need or want from recommendations where to go to providing a gas powered lobster pot. It was greatly appreciated that there was always a prompt response to any inquiry. The only drawback was the healthy mosquitoes, but we were forewarned, so we came prepared.
All of us would be delighted to return someday.
Second year we stayed at the Cove House and Cottage and we enjoyed it just as much. Homes are exactly as pictured and quite clean. Enjoyed the "quiet side" of the island even more this time.
Would highly recommend especially fora large family that needs the extra space afforded by two separate cottages at the same location.
Heaven on Earth in Maine
The setting alone is calm, peaceful, and stunning for those of us that love nature. What I appreciated was all the love and care I noted in all the details of the home itself. Every room reflected Mary Ann's attention to detail and thoughtfulness for the comfort of her guests- from the library in most rooms to the art reflecting Mary Ann's own world travels. I could not want for any kitchen gadget or tool and found many I don't own at home! All in all a true vacation that lacked for nothing. I can't wait to go back....
Beautiful home with fantastic view of the water.
The Cove house is large, clean and in a perfect location with a beautiful view of the water. The house is updated, beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped and feels like home. I would only recommend slightly more comfortable seating in the tv room, but we enjoyed the couches in the sitting room. The setting is quiet and private yet minutes to Southwest Harbor. We have already recommended this place to our friends who are planning a vacation to Maine. Only thing you should beware of are the mosquitos. They can be fierce depending on temperatures and wind!
