  • quiet and scenic location

    "The location, property, and cottage were better than expected. We were looking for a private rental, as opposed to a row of rental properties.The owners were very nice and accessible, and made us feel at home. We also chose the cottage for the location, as it was central to where we wanted to spend our time. The beach was a 2 minute walk and the state park was less than 2 miles. We were able to enjoy both of them after returning from a day of activities. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are close enough to enable us to spend several days exploring, hiking, and kayaking. We also took a day trip to Portland, and a short trip to Bangor for sight seeing. The cottage was the perfect size for me and my 2 teenagers. It was neat, clean, and well maintained. I would rent this cottage again, especially from the same owners, and would recommend the same to friends and relatives. We had a wonderful trip....I hope to be able to return sometime soon!"

  • Even Better than Expected!

    "These pictures cannot capture how nice this cottage is! It provided the perfect base for an Acadia visit with all the comforts of home for us, a couple with one child (easily could’ve accommodated another child or 2). Wendy keeps this place IMMACULATE and stocked with EVERYTHING you might need, even baking supplies, 2 coffee grinders, lobster pot, toiletries, books, board games & lots of DVDs though we never turned on the TV. We were welcomed with a nice basket of Maine goodies, including 2 different coffees: thoughtful touch! The bedrooms are roomy, both w/closets & dressers. 1.5 bathrooms = no waiting. The mattresses in both rooms were comfy & seemed fairly new (older noisy/lumpy mattresses are sometimes an issue in rentals). People who haven’t visited coastal ME worry about not having AC. In our 20 years of renting here, this has never been an issue, and this house has lots of new windows to let in the cool, almost constant ocean breeze. The living room is large for the size of the cottage with comfy seating for about 8, surrounded by a wall of windows facing the East Bay. The whole cottage is light and airy in beachy whites and vibrant cottage colors. For those sensitive to ME’s (very) early and late summer sunrise/sunset, the bedroom windows have shades plus darkening curtains. Few places we’ve rented have thought to do this: great idea! The location is convenient to MDI & Acadia NP while allowing a quiet base to “get away from it all.” You could easily spend your time relaxing here & enjoying spots within walking distance: Lamoine beach and SP, a local swimming pond (warmer water) & your own rocky shore. Rent kayaks from a local vendor who can deliver to the cottage. Enjoy the ocean views from all the outdoor seating on the sunny, mown lawn: lounge chairs, picnic table or a small table on a deck just outside the back door. Take time to watch for bald eagles, seals and other wildlife that come through on a daily basis; binoculars provided. Barbecue or at night, make a fire and stargaze. As others have mentioned, Ellsworth is a short drive to stores and laundry if needed. Adding a washer/dryer might be the only suggestion we could make for improvement, since most air travelers will pack fewer clothes than possibly needed for the week’s stay. Wendy and Mike clearly care about their guests' comfort & were responsive to communications. They’re bound to get lots of repeat guests & we hope to be among them. Thanks for a great stay!"

  • A stunning location!

    "This house was definitely a completely relaxing experience for our annual Girls' Vacation. The views are amazing, especially watching the full moon come up over the ocean. We spent a lot of our time just listening to and watching the crashing surf. The house is lovely and comfortable, just right for our needs. Don't miss out on a trip out to Schoodic Point or lunch on The Wharf while you enjoy this little piece of heaven!"

  • Fabulous place with everything we needed for a family getaway!

    "Our family (including 2 dogs) stayed at the farmhouse over Thanksgiving weekend, and it was just perfect! Lots of room, very welcoming and felt like home. Close to Acadia and all Down East has to offer. Highly recommend - hope to return. Also, Ray (the owner) was just terrific and made everything a breeze."
