  • Cute & Convenient location to all tourist sites

    "The Little House is cute and cozy and tastefully decorated. It is conveniently located to get to all of the tourist sites in the area yet far enough removed to have peace and quiet in the evening. The kitchen has everything that you could possibly need during your stay in regard to pots & pans, dishes, utensils, etc. Fair warning: you must be able to squat down and get back up to access dishes & cups as they are in a lower cupboard. My husband has difficulty in that regard but it wasn't a problem for me. The bed is comfortable but is only full size. The second bedroom has two twin beds so the cottage is accommodating for families. The backyard is beautiful with gardens, a picnic table, adirondack chairs and a BBQ charcoal grill. The west facing side deck has a table and two chairs and was a relaxing place to sip my tea in the morning. The Little House is located on a private road so the only cars going by are that of the owner and guests staying in the other rental house up the lane. There are great bagels and muffins and coffee a short walk up the street on the corner and also a small cafe to have a full breakfast. My husband brought his bicycle and found all kinds of roads and trails to explore in the morning while he waited for me to wake up. Acadia is a must. See Cadillac Mountain and Sand Beach and beautiful overlooks. There's a small lighthouse in Bass Harbor. If you don't mind climbing over rocks, there's a great sunset view from the eastern side. Head left from the parking lot rather than going down to the right if time is short. Echo Lake is nearby as is Little Long Pond. Don't miss sunset at Seal Cove! It was my favorite spot of all but not well marked for road signage. Continue all the way down Seal Cove Road (it turns to dirt; don't worry...it's passable and heavily used). At the end, turn right and take your next left. I believe it's Cape Road. There's a mini lighthouse on the corner. Seal Cove is just a short distance from there. It's also a great place to see lobster boats coming in with their fresh catch and loading them onto trucks. There's also access to put a canoe or kayak into the water and relatively calm since it's a cove. Lastly, if you are 62 or older you qualify for a $10 lifetime pass to any national park, which includes free admission for EVERYONE who is with you! If you don't already have one, you can buy one at Acadia. There is one plus to aging! :)"

  • Great home with everything you need!

    "Our time at Windaway was very enjoyable. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. We even cooked Thanksgiving dinner there! Matt, the homeowner, was friendly and accommodating, even going out of his way to locate a turkey baster for us when it was the one thing the kitchen didn't already have. The home was more spacious than it appears in the photos, and our two families felt we could stretch out no problem. The home was impeccably clean with towels & linens that were of high quality. Beds were more comfortable than my own! The walk down to the water is a bonus, and the view from the house itself is quite nice, although there is not a sweeping water view from downstairs. In short, we thought this home exceeded expectations and we felt sure that Matt would have happily helped us out if there had been any issues, but there weren't. He was also kind & welcoming to our dog, who liked him in return. As mentioned in the listing, many popular Acadia trail heads are about a 20-25 minute drive away, so this house lets you access everything, but also get away from it all. Great spot!"

  • The Perfect Getaway

    "We had an awesome visit. Rob & Marj were wonderful hosts in the cabin was perfect... just as described. We loved how peaceful and quiet the location was. Having direct access to the trails of Acadia National Park was wonderful. We spent our week enjoying the park, dinners in Southwest Harbor, and day trips to Bar Harbor."

  • A Wonderful Stay!

    "This lovely cottage was perfect! Love the wooden floors, big windows and cozy atmosphere. This cottage is well taken care of and it shows. We had a great week hiking all over the island and always looked forward to coming back to our home away from home. Thank you Louise and Jim! We already miss beautiful Mount Desert Island."
