  • Perfect Get Away From It All

    "I was looking for a quiet place to spend a week with my girls (12 and 15) that would be peaceful, fun, and close enough to Bar Harbor to visit but far enough to feel like we were getting away from it all. I really could not have found a more perfect place; John and Liz made us feel so welcomed it was like being in our own home, not a rental, right from the start. The house itself is really beautifully situated; the beach is right down a path out the back steps, the sun sparkles through the windows in the mornings, the stars sparkle at night and the waves, when it's windy, will put you to sleep. It's on a hushed country road with few cars; the quiet in the air is stunning, especially at night. We also fell in love with the dogs - especially Maddie, who we miss - it was like a fringe benefit! Everything we needed was there; bikes to ride and wood for the outdoor fire pit and even fresh eggs from the chickens. We stopped at Tradewinds in Blue Hill on the way for food - which I recommend - but the cottage has what you would need otherwise - towels and sheets and blankets and a kitchen stocked with the basics, pots and pans and utensils, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. Pretty much whatever you need is there, making it a lot easier to unpack and unwind. Liz and John are great hosts, the house is sweet and cozy, and it was as perfect a week as I could have imagined. If you are trying to avoid the bustle of Bar Harbor but want to be close enough to get there for dinner or day trips (about 45 minutes), you can't do better. Liz also recommended a boat trip in Bass Harbor (Island Cruises) which was an absolute must, a great way to spend an afternoon. Thanks Liz and John for helping us make lifelong memories, we hope to come back!"

  • Extremely clever pun in the title!

    "I'm a HomeAway host and can only wish I could be as cordial as these hosts! The property is located in a drop-dead spot, right on the shores of a scenic salt pond, set way back from the highway. Quiet as it could get! Both Maureen and Steve are lovely people, ready to make your visit the best. The unit is of first class construction and materials. The kitchen can easily take care of any of your cooking projects. Be sure to take advantage of the kayaks they ready for you. We'll be back as soon as possible."

  • Great place for a quiet, out of the way stay.

    "I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this property. The owners were great and got back to me quickly when making the reservation. Howard met me upon my arrival and showed me around. I enjoy cooking and the kitchen was set up great. I live in Boston and very much enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Woods Pond. Next time I plan on renting a kayak and exploring. I will most definitely be coming back."

  • Enjoyed our stsy at the Parker House.

    "If you are in this neck of woods, you owe it to yourself to.consider the Parker House! I can't think of anything that wasn't provided. Well stocked kitchen with staples and cookware. Nothing was missing. We had a small problem with the wifi connection, but John was on top of it super fast. The house was welcoming and warm. Loved all of the antiques throughout the house. Our dogs took advantage of the huge backyard. Tons of space to run and play. I highly recommend staying at the Parker House."
