  • 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!"

  • Beautiful views! Lovely Cabin!

    "Honastly the pictures and descriptions do not do this cabin justice. The cabin sits right on the lake and water can be seen from almost every window in the house. Each morning we'd come into the living room and say "WOW!". The lake truly surrounds the cabin, it almost appears as though you are floating on crystal clear blue water. Set back about 8 acres from a dirt road this really is a peaceful secluded vacation destination. My son loved canoeing with his dad, exploring the giant boulders, swimming, and trying to catch frogs. My baby loved playing in her play yard on the deck overlooking the lake and watching all the birds, which included a bald eagle and loons. My husband and I enjoyed reading, fishing, making smores by the camp fire and star gazing. By far our favorite part of the cabin was lying on the deck after the kids were asleep and watching the stars, satellites, metior shower, and milky way while hearing the loons and the water crash on the rocks. The cabin is overall very cozy and welcoming. The beds were not the most comfortable but everything else was great. There is plenty to do at the cabin and Acadia National Park is only and hour away. Definitely worth the 9 hour drive for this extremely relaxing vacation."

  • Incredibly Idyllic as Advertised & then some!

    "• Incredibly well appointed – lovely tasteful modern Maine décor with every possible convenience, Lovely maps & artwork on walls, appliances,, etc. Could not be done any nicer. • Flowers when we arrived & stocked wood by the fire pit • 20 steps to the dock! Fun kayaks, great dock • Clean, Clean, Clean!!! • Great kitchen with every possible cooking amenity – down to parchment paper. • Even basic fishing supplies in the storage shed for those who might need them – how considerate! • Lake was very quiet – saw one boat on the water all week • Love the windswept blueberry barrens on the way in – looks a lot like the heather fields of Scotland Only slight drawbacks and minor ones at that: • Pretty slow fishing and what was caught was incredibly small (mix of perch, bass & sunfish), and the house is pretty close to its neighbors though the old camp to the left was empty (to the right is a pretty active, family with watercraft, dogs, kids, etc). But extremely quiet most of the time. • Local Highlights – Main Acadia National Park on Mt. Desert Island was incredibly crowded during our stay in early Sept – instead, go to the equally scenic and totally uncrowded Schoodic Point which is also part of the park, but attached to the mainland (they are about the same driving distance from the cabin). Have a great lunch at the quaint Corea on the Wharf, where you are sitting on a working lobster dock and the owner actually caught our lobster earlier that morning. His Jonah crab claws, from his own traps, are to die for! As I tried to eat my weight in lobster, best was at Ruth & Whimpy’s right near the cabin on RT 1 - a one of a kind seacoast gem with its quirky décor. Get a hard shelled one if you can – harder to crack but much meatier (best steamers were at Young’s in Belfast an hour down the coast). Swallows Nest - local baker around the corner (open Wed 12n-4P only) makes an incredible blueberry pie - dense, tart and not goopy. Shack on Rt 1 at intersection (called YU Takeout) near Irving Gas - for value priced options like lobster & crab rolls (non-ME crab) - and Korean food! Steamers great everywhere, but best we found were at Young's Lobster Pound in Belfast on the way up Farnsworth Museum in Rockland (1:15 south) def. worth trip to see largest collection of Wyeths (all 3 generations) outside of the Brandywine in DE."

  • Perfect Maine Getaway

    "This cottage was an ideal size for the two of us and our dog. Having a private beach just steps from the house was absolutely the best part. We walked the shoreline during low tide, swam during hide tide, and had fires on the beach at night. Acadia National Park is only a 45 minute drive away and coming back after a long hike or a day in Bar Harbor to this peaceful setting was simply perfect. We grilled on the back deck most nights and the kitchen is stocked with any supplies you would need. Dee was very accommodating to us and prompt in her responses from the day we booked until the day we left!"
