Quiet, Clean and Proximity to Acadia Nat’l Park
The location and property were perfect for us. Driftwood Cottage is close to some Acadia Park walking trails, which were ideal and convenient to bring along our dog. Owners, Joe & Christina, were so helpful and prompt with their responses to any inquiry.
Great location, responsive owner
Joe and Christina are responsive and honest hosts. We had an issue with a drain clog which was promptly taken care of. They are updating different things over time starting with what looked like new steel appliances. However, as it is it's quite functional. You can't beat the value of this location. You can walk to the Bass Harbor Lighthouse while others jostle for parking! We went in the Columbus Day weekend, a peak visitation time, and it was nice to be back to a quiet place while the rest of the main park areas were teeming with people and you have to fight for parking everywhere.
Quiet and remote
Nice little house tucked away on the quiet side of the island. Just outside is a short trail to a beautiful rocky beach - walked it every day and never saw anyone else! The house was well-kept and comfortable. Since this was partially a work-related trip today, I was very happy to have a strong, reliable internet signal as well!
Quite and comfortable
I loved being able to get to several trails in the National Park on foot. I also really appreciated being on the quiet side of the park. The house is very comfortable with great appliances and good WiFi. My dog loved the big deck even though she wasn’t allowed to chase the deer and turkeys that wandered through the yard. Good places to eat nearby and a fabulous bakery.
Clean , quite and spacious
We recently stayed at Driftwood Cottage with another couple for two nights . The cottage was roomy and very clean with everything as advertised .I would recommend this rental to anyone including families .We plan on going back in the future only to stay longer next time to take advantage of the area . On the way out we stopped at Echo Lake which is close to the cottage . Beautiful lake with a beach and swimming in fresh water . Great for families
Nice, clean house in a quiet neighborhood, well equipped, although (old)fashioned
This is a nice clean house in a quiet street, close to the coastline. The house is very well equipped. We only missed wine glasses.
The furniture and cupboards in the kitchen is/are old. Also the carpet and floor-sail in the kitchen. But everything is working and is ok. The bathroom is a little bit small (and also old), but the shower is working well and we had nice hot water, so we were doing fine.
