  • Great cottage with perfect location.

    "Myself and my husband along with our adult children enjoyed staying at the Blue Rose Cottage. The owners provide everything needed for a carefree, relaxing vacation. They are extremely responsive to any and all questions, requests or needs and go above and beyond to make their cottage comfortable. The location is ideal for a walk in-town to restaurants, stores and a beautiful stroll along the shore. Aside from drives to the park, our cars hardly moved. There is a nice front yard with a fire pit that we used often. Thank you very much for providing us with what we needed for a wonderful vacation."

  • Perfect Location!

    "Having never been to Bar Harbor before, we were a bit uncertain as to whether we should stay downtown or in the woods somewhere, since we expected this to be a very outdoorsy trip. As a young couple (late twenties), we couldn't have ended up happier with the location of this apartment. It is a minutes walk from all of the great restaurants, shops, bars and other attractions in Bar Harbor while still being a bit tucked away on what was definitely a more quiet street in the town. It has parking so it was great to be able to walk downtown to go out to dinner without worrying about where to park your car and dealing with that stress. We could get anywhere from here in minutes! It is also right off the shore path, which was great for talking runs and walks -- such a beautiful place to get an evening run in -- breath taking views. We also enjoyed how close it was to the farmer's market. We could drive to and be at almost any location in the park in just a few minutes too (after picking up coffee and a pastry at the bakery next door). The apartment itself is as described. It was basic, but had everything we needed and was very clean. The owners are very sweet and responded to a question we had but gave us our privacy. I thought it was sweet they even sent us a Christmas card! We made many fun memories on this trip and we really look forward to coming back sooner than later! We would definitely recommend this apartment and Bar Harbor."

  • 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 !!"

  • 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."
