  • 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!"

  • Charming and cozy

    "This is a bright and cheery, cozy and charming cottage on a quiet road. It is surrounded by fields, the view of a beautiful neighboring farmhouse, and the ocean only a short walk away. The owners were readily available for questions and suggestions of things to do and places to go. It felt very private with a stunning starry sky at night. I highly recommend this as a vacation spot for small families, honeymooners, or good friends. ~Ellie"

  • The Best!

    "Our family had a wonderful time - your home away from home was perfect. Housekeeping had the house spotless! This is a great location. We brought kayaks to paddle in the tidal cove, enjoyed the decks, screen porch and lobster delivered to our door by the neighbor. Check out the local food co-op for groceries. We saw fox, deer, eagles and a heron right there. Many hiking trails nearby, especially to Barren island at low tide. Our family with 2 teenage boys had a great vacation. The owners were great to work with. Definitely would recommend this rental."

  • Take a vacation where time is suspended

    "My husband and I recently stayed at this little woodland cottage for 2 weeks in September. We were delighted at every turn. The cottage is very comfortable and the owners have thought of every single thing anyone would need away from their own homes. The scenery on a very secluded cove was spectacular. It was hard for us to leave. We certainly hope to return here in years to come. The owners were very attentive and cordial in all our dealings with them."
