  • Immaculate, spacious cottage in quiet, peaceful setting

    "This was our first trip to Maine and we loved it! Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed staying at Folkestone Cottage. The house was spacious, comfortable, clean, and tidy. My husband and I enjoyed having the master bedroom/bath on the first floor, and the kids were happy to have their own bedrooms and shared bath upstairs. We were very pleased to see that the cottage was well-stocked with everything you could possibly need, especially since we had recently stayed in an Airbnb house that was lacking enough towels, plates, glasses, and utensils. Having a full-size washer/dryer was also very helpful. The cottage living room was cozy and we spent most evenings playing board games that the owners had made available. There were a few hot days during our stay, and while the house does not have AC, there was a large fan in each bedroom and easy-to-open windows throughout the house to keep it comfortable with cross breezes. The property is surrounded by woods and feels secluded even though it's in a neighborhood. We were able to keep the windows open when we were home and enjoyed the fresh air and views of the lush, green yard. The yard is well-kept and has large grassy areas for the kids to run around. There's a small deck off the kitchen with a table and chairs, and we enjoyed some of our meals outside. We drove into Acadia and/or Bar Harbor everyday (about a 10-15 minute drive) and it was nice coming home to peaceful, quiet Folkestone Cottage every night to relax. Jeff and Lynn were friendly and easy to work with and they take excellent care of the cottage. We have rented many vacation homes over the years and Folkestone Cottage stands out as exceptional!"

  • perfect for our needs!

    "We had a fabulous five days in the farmhouse cottage. It is a small place, but perfectly comfortable for my husband and I, plus our toddler son (we brought a pack-n-play for him to sleep in). There is no A/C in the cottage but it stayed cool via the open windows for night breezes and ceiling fans. The washer/dryer was especially useful as was the provided detergent. There are enough dishes, pots & pans, etc. for us to prepare simple meals for breakfast and the odd evening that we wanted to stay in. The water pressure was fantastic, which was especially appreciated after long days hiking through Acadia! The only improvement that could be made for comfort would be the squeaky and hard mattress. We loved the cottage's location. It is set back from the busy road far enough that the we couldn't hear the trucks passing. Every day or night, we took a stroll into the heart of Southwest Harbor for breakfast at the Common Good, or dinner at the Quietside Cafe or other spots, or to buy a blueberry pie at the little bakery we passed! The farmhouse cottage was a great decision towards the success of our island vacation!"
