  • Truly lovely ocean front vacation cottage

    "We celebrated our silver wedding anniversary at Waterlily and it was perfect. The cottage was very comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated and everything we could possibly need was supplied. There are awesome views from every room in the cottage with no curtains in the bedroom to spoil the view. We watched seals, porpoises, loons, cormorants and bald eagles from the deck and the sunsets were spectacular (as are the stars at night with there being so little light pollution). The rocky beach was fun to explore at low tide too. The cottage is only about 10 minutes away from downtown Bar Harbor and the same to Acadia National Park. It was so nice to be able to vacation with our little dog, so many thanks, Chelcey, for making this perfect romantic cottage pet friendly - she enjoyed hikes every day in the park with us. This peaceful cottage and Acadia National Park made our anniversary super special. We'd love to return and stay at Waterlily again sometime. Actually, no....... I'd like to win the lottery and buy it !!"

  • Great house for a family event

    "The house is in a great location, out of the way and quiet, but still close to all the Bar Harbor has to offer. Plenty of room for our large family on our visit to the area to attend our daughter's college graduation. We especially enjoyed the spacious deck and grills during out stay."

  • FABULOUS !!

    "This place is a gem!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, we walked in and were so happy to see how spotlessly clean it was. So cozy and well furnished, the bed was so comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to cook with. We slept really well, and found it to be quiet. We loved sitting in the yard with our glass of wine each evening relaxing surrounded by beautiful flowers and watching the antics of the ducks, and chickens. What a beautiful yard!! It is super close to Arcadia National Park which is why we came to Bar Harbour. Also the downtown area has so many great restaurants and shops to keep you busy, but really driving around to explore the natural beauty was just fantastic!! Donna and Kevin were great hosts so easy to talk to and full of information about the local area, and recommended some gardens and other hidden area's to check out that were just great!! They really take pride in their property and you just have to look around to see that. We will definitely be back. What a great find this was!! Thanks so much for a fabulous and relaxing vacation."

  • Immaculate, spacious cottage in quiet, peaceful setting

    "This was our first trip to Maine and we loved it! Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed staying at Folkestone Cottage. The house was spacious, comfortable, clean, and tidy. My husband and I enjoyed having the master bedroom/bath on the first floor, and the kids were happy to have their own bedrooms and shared bath upstairs. We were very pleased to see that the cottage was well-stocked with everything you could possibly need, especially since we had recently stayed in an Airbnb house that was lacking enough towels, plates, glasses, and utensils. Having a full-size washer/dryer was also very helpful. The cottage living room was cozy and we spent most evenings playing board games that the owners had made available. There were a few hot days during our stay, and while the house does not have AC, there was a large fan in each bedroom and easy-to-open windows throughout the house to keep it comfortable with cross breezes. The property is surrounded by woods and feels secluded even though it's in a neighborhood. We were able to keep the windows open when we were home and enjoyed the fresh air and views of the lush, green yard. The yard is well-kept and has large grassy areas for the kids to run around. There's a small deck off the kitchen with a table and chairs, and we enjoyed some of our meals outside. We drove into Acadia and/or Bar Harbor everyday (about a 10-15 minute drive) and it was nice coming home to peaceful, quiet Folkestone Cottage every night to relax. Jeff and Lynn were friendly and easy to work with and they take excellent care of the cottage. We have rented many vacation homes over the years and Folkestone Cottage stands out as exceptional!"
