  • Great place to stay

    "This was our second stay at Folkstone Cottage (2 successive summers). We have been very pleased with our experience each time. In prior years, we had had a difficult time finding family-friendly accommodations close to Bar Harbor. There are many hotels/motels/ cottages in the area, but we needed space to relax during down-time, and to prepare some of our own meals, due to food allergies. This home is very comfortable, and despite all the great things to do in the area, we frequently found ourselves just "hanging out" at the house because it was so comfortable. While it is a bit "off the beaten path," it is still only 10-15 minutes from Bar Harbor and within walking distance of Atlantic Brewing/Mainely Meats, one of our favorite places to eat. While Maine summers are generally not too hot, be aware that there is no air conditioning, as is true of many (if not most) of the rentals in the area. Numerous fans are provided, and although we had relatively hot weather during our stays, things did generally cool down at night. Lynn and Jeff were very responsive to any minor issues, and all appliances worked well. We will definitely be back for our next trip to Acadia!"

  • What a quiet, beautiful, and wonderful place!

    "Without a doubt this was a wonderful place to stay (and I agree with a previous poster- the pictures really don't do it justice!) When I was a kid, my family would always visit Mount Desert Island, and I'm glad I had the chance to visit this beautiful property. First- the location is very good. My favorite part was that I could fly into the Bar Harbor airport and be at the house in under ten minutes. It's still a manageable drive to anywhere on the island too. But the location's best asset is the view westward into the bay. The sunsets were amazing, and there was plenty of room for exploring with a beautiful terraced garden. Each room in the house is designed to look out on the water (the view from the Master Bedroom is great). There is a deck facing westward that was wonderful for grilling too. The house had high ceilings and beautiful wooden walls. As a house it can easily fit eight. There's a room downstairs with TV and a few couches, which are good for lazy nights after hiking, biking, or kayaking. The house is about ten minutes from the town of Somesville, and a little more than twenty minutes by car to Bar Harbor. All the Acadia sights are an easy drive. So it's close enough to everything on the island while remaining it's quiet charm. Since moving south it's gotten harder to make it to Mount Desert Island, but I"m hoping to make it next year."

  • Great time and wonderful people.

    "The wife and I had a great time and could not have asked for anything more. The apartment suited our needs well. The location is a very good reason to pick this apartment. We walked through town several times a day to eat and enjoy all the other treats that Bar Harbor had to offer. Acadia was breath taking and that time of year was very nice for our stay. We happen to meet the owners and they were just awesome. We took our very small dog and that also went well. There are comments about the shower and though the roof slopes it was fine for us. I'm 5'10". This was one of my favorite vacations and I did not want to leave. There was so much to do and see."

  • Vacation Paradise

    "This house was perfect for our family vacation! The setting was beautiful, peacefully quiet on the water, but within minutes from Acadia National Park and the center of town (Bar Harbor). A first floor bedroom and bath were great for Grandma, and the kitchen was suplied with all the utensils of home. The picture window in the front gave us a view of the sunrise and sunset, the tidal waters of Frenchman's Bay and the deer and birds that frequented the front path to the beach. We routinely took a dip in the pool every afternoon and dined on the spacious deck.The master suite was huge and inviting. We plan on returning for another glorious week the next time we are in this area and this house is the place to stay."
