Recent Acadia reviews

  • Ideal getaway!!!

    "My husband and I have been going to Mt. Desert Island for over 45 years to enjoy the spectacular ocean walks and views, mountains, and lakes that the island offers. As much as we loved our twice (or thrice) annual trips to Acadia, the noisy motels/hotels and long restaurant lines were becoming tiresome and diminished our level of enjoyment. We'd often rented cottages elsewhere but had never found a cottage in the Bar Harbor area that we liked until we stumbled upon Paul's Cottage. What we ideally had wanted was a cottage on the ocean with a fireplace that offered both privacy and easy access to Acadia Park. After spending a fall and spring week in Paul's Cottage this past year, we have found it a perfect fit for us, offering many amenities including the following. - situated right on the shore with stunning westerly island and sunset views - welcoming, friendly, and accommodating owners (available but not intrusive) - a large updated kitchen not wanting for anything - fresh lobster and other seafood, produce, groceries, etc. available within a short drive - very good restaurants (especially in season) if desired - Acadia Park sites within easy driving distance - various books and games to enjoy by the huge fireplace (endless supply of firewood available) or on the spacious deck overlooking the water - the Southwest Harbor Library issues guest passes for non-residents for supplemental reading choices We are very much looking forward to our two-week stay this fall and are considering a winter visit at some point."

  • Maine vacation

    "This is a great house for a week with a family gathering of nine people. The only disappointing factor was on arrival none of the outdoor furniture had cleaned off or put and the back doors were still boarded up. The towels we're very old and needed replaced. Otherwise the house was great and in a very convenient location."

  • Peaceful and private

    "Driftwood Cottage was a great place for a getaway for a couple with a dog. The cottage is simple and beautifully done, with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. There is one other cottage on the long driveway but nobody was there during our stay, plus it is a very separate from Driftwood and there are trees and a small field between. The location is ideal for those seeking a quiet setting close to trails and small coastal towns and kayaking. We went to Acadia's Schoodic Peninsula for a wonderful day trip. Nearby Holbrook Sanctuary was a huge highlight of the trip because we had an unbelievable, up-close sighting of a mature bald eagle sitting on a low branch. Beautiful sunsets are a huge asset to this west-facing cottage looking out over the cove. We enjoyed our time at Driftwood very much!!"

  • Lovely cottage, convenient to everything

    "My husband and 21-year-son and I rented this adorable cottage for the last week in August and had a wonderful time! All the Bar Harbor restaurants and shops are within walking distance, but it was easy to hop in the car and go to Acadia without driving through downtown. The home was spotless, charming, and comfy. Just as important, the owners are friendly and responsive. Can't wait to go back!"
