Everything is new at Gardener's Cottage. Our renovations are now complete and include a well-stocked light-filled 'cook's' kitchen, a spacious and comfortable living room, 1 1/2 baths and a private outdoor patio to enjoy the clean Maine air.
My wife and I visited Acadia in October and we wanted a house with kitchen. We booked this house based on the pictures and reviews provided in VRBO. I have to admit that the pictures and reviews provided do 100% justice to how well the house is maintained.
The house is a beautiful single bedroom, gives you a lot of privacy and also not so much that you feel deserted. It is in the perfect location so that you can reach the park in 15 - 20 mins drive.
The house is extremely well maintained that makes you feel home away from home. The kitchen is very well furnished and you will not miss out on any appliance or the basic necessities.
Above all I have to admit Michael and Fayelle are one of the finest people you will get to know - friendly, honest, straightforward, and very considerate.
I would recommend this house to any anyone who is visiting Acadia without any kind of hesitation.
We enjoyed our mid-October 3 night stay at the cottage very much. A perfect romantic location for a couple, cozy but not crowded. As other reviewers stated, the cottage was clean, well appointed and equipped with almost everything we could have asked for. Very nice to have a washer/dryer.The only big issue we had was a problem with the Wi-Fi. The owners were very helpful in trying to resolve the issue with the local provider, but as the cottage is not equipped with either cable or satellite tv, the only way to access Netflix, Hulu, etc. was through Wi-Fi.
We would definitely stay at this lovely cottage again.
We really enjoyed the cottage and our stay in Bar Harbor. The cottage was very nicely updated and gave us plenty of room and privacy for a great rate.
What an amazing place to stay.Everything that is needed was in home.Place was very clean and so close to both bar harbor and Acadia. Would highly recommend it.
The house is tucked away but close to Bar Harbor - very nice location. The condition of the rental is excellent, with all the creature comforts you would want/need. Beautiful property, lovely taste in decor, it was a perfect way to spend a week on MDI. The kitchen is stocked with anything you need and then some. The upstairs bathroom shower feels like a spa. There is not a stone left unturned (air fresheners, cleaners, laundry detergent, bath soaps, and excellent taste in all mentioned).
Fayelle and Michael are there if you need them, and respect your privacy otherwise. Fayelle is amazingly quick to respond to inquiries during the process of renting/scheduling. They are a joy to work with.
Do yourself a favor and experience this lovely cottage (except when we want to be there again).
This is a newly constructed cottage in a wonderful location, extremely well maintained with all the comforts of home. The cottage is a great design with large rooms with lots of natural light. The kitchen amenities are great with comfortable indoor or outdoor eating. Great master bath with large shower. It was very easy to drive to all places on the island. The owners were very helpful, friendly and take care to maintain property.
This is now are new place to stay in Maine.
