  • Enjoyed the cozy cottage overlooking Frenchman Bay

    "This was our first trip to Maine, and we were very pleased with our stay at McIntyre Cottage. It was so peaceful--the perfect place for us to start and end our days of hiking in Acadia National Park. We had everything we needed and enjoyed watching the sunrise over the bay and the lobster boats coming and going. Neila was gracious and responsive to our needs. We cooked breakfast and supper each day and appreciated having the use of a gas grill. A couple of minor suggestions: consider an updated TV; add a beverage pitcher, a potato peeler, and a cookie pan to the kitchen supplies (which overall was well stocked). Thank you, Neila!"

  • Charming farmhouse, isolated location, striking distance to everything

    "My wife, our ten and seven year old children, our dog, and I spent a wonderful and relaxing week in Lamoine. The farmhouse is rustic and charming. The property offers children lots of opportunities to play and explore. The stars are amazing. While rustic, modern amenities are also available: WIFI, satellite TV, and a bluetooth stereo receiver. There are a number of things to do that are minutes away. Lamoine Beach and Raccoon Cove are spots for foraging clams and mussels, kayaking, or watching the sunrise. While my daughter painted the sunrise at Lamoine Beach, I foraged some rose hips and we made rose hip jam, adding some of the crab apples that grow behind the farmhouse for pectin. There's al fresco pizza available at the nearby goat farm, Seal Cove Farm. There are fresh egg sellers and lobster boils along the road on the way into Elseworth. Elseworth has super markets for stocking up and Roster Brother's for gourmet cheese, cold cuts and dry goods. They have excellent coffee. We had lunch at Serendib, a Sri Lankan restaurant, in Elseworth, which was very, very good. We visited Acadia three times and it's about a 30 minute drive to the Mt. Desert Island part of the park. We also visited Scoodic Point which is a longer drive, but well worth a visit. The Down East Maine Coast is a beautiful place, affording many opportunities for good times and good food. We'll definitely be back and would stay at Fox Hollow again. Other things worth checking out: - Acadia Deep Sea Fishing, they send you home with lobster from their traps. It's a rather long trip and not the best if you're prone to sea sickness - J & P's Farm Market in Trenton, good local produce, frozen Herring Brothers steaks. - Morning Glory Bakery in Bar Harbor"

  • Wow. What a comfortable and peaceful cottage!

    "We ventured from So. California to spend the first 2 weeks of October (2016) for fall foliage and the local lobster. This cottage was a perfect choice. First, the owners were very easy to work with and extremely helpful with directions and what activities are in the area. The cottage was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom windows looked out on the Frenchman Bay. In the morning, while in bed, you can see sunrise. And at night you see see the stars through the skylights. I really appreciated the reading lights by the very comfortable king bed (plenty of pillows for reading in bed). The steam shower was a real treat after a full day of touring Acadia (and those chilly mornings!). The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need. Even pots to boil lobster (it is so easy to buy lobster, we didn't bother). We did steam purchased clams. The stove / oven worked well. We used the oven and made baked apples multiple times. Soap, laundry soap and plenty of towels were provided. The clothes washer and dryer are new, and it was nice to do some laundry as needed. The fire place was very efficient warming up the cottage and relaxing. The whole front of the cottage has window view of Frenchman Cove, and looking towards Bar Harbor. The drive to Mount Desert Island/Acadia Park was an easy drive. The fall foliage was just amazing. What a wonderful stay we had. I highly recommend this cottage for a wonderful visit to Acadia National Park."

  • Loved it!

    "We stayed here in late August and absolutely loved it! The house had everything we needed. There was plenty of space for our family of five, and the kids loved exploring the house! It is ideally located, about 20 minutes from Acadia, Bar Harbor and Schoodic. Plenty to do! Swimming at Blunt's Pond or in Frenchman's Bay, hiking, SUP boarding at Long pond - just to name a few! The weather was beautiful, warm days and cool evenings , so the lack of air conditioning was not an issue. There were plenty of fans in the house if needed. We are looking forward to coming back next year!"
