Why Fayelle Anderson chose Bar Harbor
It is the best of both worlds - privacy and wooded country setting with close access to all parts of the island. It is a great escape from the crowds and a wonderful retreat to return to at the end of a busy day exploring the island.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Gardener's Cottage has high quality finshes for your comfort and convenience. This includes 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. You can sit outside by the kitchen garden or out in front on the Adirondack chairs overlooking the larger lawn, gardens and pond below or watch the fireflies at night.

Quiet gardener's Cottage
Beautifully renovated cottage. Every detail it thoughtfully tended too. Kitchen is lovely and really well equipped for cooks. Beautiful outside sitting areas and comfortable small living room. Great reading lights upstairs and down. We were very pleased with a colorful fall visit.
Perfect island getaway cottage!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent long weekend stay at the Gardener's Cottage. It is a perfect little gem of a place for a couple, and had everything we could have wanted. Honestly, I could just move right in and be happy! The location is convenient to everything on MDI, yet secluded and private. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer this trip. Next time! Thanks, Fayelle and Michael!
Cozy cottage with everything you need
Fayelle and Michael thought of everything! The kitchen and bathroom are well-stocked, there's access to Netflix online viewing and a great book/DVD collection, and of course all in a beautiful setting with a lovely home. Very peaceful, we had a great stay.
This little gem was everything I hoped for and more. Fayelle has done a beautiful job with furnishings and art work, and it felt just like home. Everything you need is right here! The cottage was very well stocked. Best of all were the views out the window of the garden and the lawn. Like others have said, it was so nice to come home to after a busy day at the park. Beautiful place!!
My husband and I recently spent a week at the Gardener's Cottage and really had a great time. The cottage is well appointed and very comfortable. It's close to everything we wanted to do (we could get to any part of Acadia National Park to hike in about 30 minutes). The yard is lovely and very peaceful. Thank you for Fayelle and Michael for providing such a great place to stay in Bar Harbor!
Gardener’s is a private cottage that is extremely comfortable and clean and perfectly located. It’s near to everything but remote enough to be able to see stars, hummingbirds or maybe even a deer peaking in on you (true story). As the others noted, it is updated, fresh and open with plenty of light. My husband and I went to the area to celebrate our 25th anniversary and would definitely stay here if we visit the area again.
Gardener's Cottage is perfectly situated just north of the busy downtown district of Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor Cellars Farm Winery is about 1 mile away, offering free tours and tastings daily as well as brick oven baked pizza at Sweet Pea's Cafe. Or head north 3 miles to Atlantic Brewery's free tours and tasting followed by the island's best BBQ at Mainely Meat BBQ.
The former estate of Beatrix Farrand, one of America’s most significant landscape architects, borders Gardener's Cottage.
