Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Rocko's Cottage is located on a side street in the downtown area of the beautiful island town of Bar Harbor. We are pet friendly for your well mannered four legged friends. Rocko is actually our 7 lb Dorkie. (Dachshund/Yorkie)

You will be within walking distance of over 25 restaurants ranging from fine dining to family fare. Bicycle rentals, kayaking trips, and unique shops galore are all within minutes of your front door and yes we can tell you which of these places welcome pets. Walk the shore path or across a natural sand bar (actually a glacial deposit) to visit beautiful Bar Island. Never have to worry about parking your car or enjoying a cocktail and then driving.

Rocko's Cottage was built in 2005 and is tastefully and comfortably furnished. You will find everything that you need to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessities of life, and the linens are all in good condition. The open floor plan actually makes our cottage appear much larger inside. It must be noted that the bathroom does not have a tub but does have a nice 4 ft. shower and for your convenience there is a stackable washer and dryer. This is a great house and location for people that travel with pets or just one or two couples or a small family that want to stay in the heart of town. Once you visit us you will be sure to return again and again.

The owners live and work locally and we are always only a phone call away if there is a problem. Welcome to our home and enjoy your stay....

Perfect! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for allowing us to use your home. It was clean and didn't smell like dogs had ever been there. Very well kept and clean. Had everything we needed. There was plenty of space for parking too. Was easy to walk into Bar Harbor for shopping or meals. We will keep your place in mind for when we come back. Thanks again.

House was just beautiful! Great place to stay !!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Rocco's Cottage. House was so clean, neat and beautifully decorated and we had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable and house was very quiet in the midst of a busy town. Lisa is a very gracious hostess. We could not have asked for anything more. We highly recommend staying at Rocco's Cottage.

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rocco's cottage this past weekend it and was perfect for us!! Great location, close to everything in town, walking distance to all of the restaurants and shops, and a short drive to the park. The house was quiet and clean. Plus, we could bring our dog so that made it ideal! The king bed was very comfortable and we slept great! For the price you can't beat it. I hope we can return in the future :)

Top Notch Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Lisa greeted us upon our arrival. She welcomed us and explained a few of the workings of the house. We settled in and were so pleasantly pleased with all the accommodations. From the comfortable bed, the bedding, the towels and the shower, everything was nice and appeared new. The kitchen had all the necessary amenities and were of good quality. It was clean and beautifully decorated. The house is in a great location for walking to so much of

what Bar Harbor has to offer. I feel we found exactly what we were looking for in a rental

property at this location, and I would certainly recommend it. Thanks for a great vacation spot!
