Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • WoW!

    "What a perfect location and great accommodations on MDI. It is a true Maine cabin; rustic with incredible views. The harbor has a lot of activity, just like the web cam showed. (Yes, I looked at the camera before I arrived.) Southwest Harbor is quiet but with enough shops and restaurants to satisfy. Plenty of room, great WiFi and cable TV. The kitchen is well appointed and well lit. Can't wait to get back there!"

  • Ideal getaway!!!

    "My husband and I have been going to Mt. Desert Island for over 45 years to enjoy the spectacular ocean walks and views, mountains, and lakes that the island offers. As much as we loved our twice (or thrice) annual trips to Acadia, the noisy motels/hotels and long restaurant lines were becoming tiresome and diminished our level of enjoyment. We'd often rented cottages elsewhere but had never found a cottage in the Bar Harbor area that we liked until we stumbled upon Paul's Cottage. What we ideally had wanted was a cottage on the ocean with a fireplace that offered both privacy and easy access to Acadia Park. After spending a fall and spring week in Paul's Cottage this past year, we have found it a perfect fit for us, offering many amenities including the following. - situated right on the shore with stunning westerly island and sunset views - welcoming, friendly, and accommodating owners (available but not intrusive) - a large updated kitchen not wanting for anything - fresh lobster and other seafood, produce, groceries, etc. available within a short drive - very good restaurants (especially in season) if desired - Acadia Park sites within easy driving distance - various books and games to enjoy by the huge fireplace (endless supply of firewood available) or on the spacious deck overlooking the water - the Southwest Harbor Library issues guest passes for non-residents for supplemental reading choices We are very much looking forward to our two-week stay this fall and are considering a winter visit at some point."

  • Return Visit to a Slice of Heaven!

    "This house is truly a favorite of mine. This was an overdue return visit since I kept remembering the view and lovely town and have been wishing to return. And it didn't disappoint! Every time I walk into the living room, every bit of tension just melts away when I see the wall of windows with that black blue water peeking through the trees. I can only imagine that someone must have planned the grounds perfectly to provide lovely yet natural looking flowers, shrubs, and flora and skillfully placed trees that allow for an incredible view without sacrificing privacy. Just a perfect location since it is only moments to Southwest Harbor yet you feel like you are a million miles from everything. Great star watching at night by the way. In my previous review, I cited how well stocked the house is, and if anything, I think the house is even better stocked than last time; Tons of kitchen utensils, cookware, dishes, even books and games. It also has good, reliable internet. The owners are as helpful as can be. This place is very versatile and perfect for a family get away since it is kid friendly with lots of chairs for seating at the huge granite kitchen Island or the long harvest style dining table, or great for a romantic getaway or a girls weekend. I do like the fact it is so nice and quiet but yet Bar Harbor is only a short drive away."

  • Great Rental - Amazing Location

    "Our extended family stayed at this lovely Maine home last summer for two weeks, and we liked it so much that as we drove home we arranged to rent it again next summer. We rented both the house and the cottage (which was perfect for guests visiting us for a day or two.) Both were very clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. The house has everything you need; kitchen supplies, beach and bath towels, bikes, you name it. Claudia was a great landlord. She was easy to reach, pleasant to talk to, and addressed all our questions and concerns in a timely manner. We were a little surprised by the hand held shower in the upstairs bathroom, but its large size was very comfortable and the downstairs bathroom was quite nice and modern. When the back door lock broke during our stay, Claudia took care of it immediately even though she was away on her own vacation. Our favorite thing about the house was the front porch. The view is spectacular! We loved how easy it was to walk across the street, down the short dirt road to the beach, and put in our kayaks or just play with the kids. The location was perfect for us. We also loved being on the “quiet side” and so close to the town of Southwest Harbor. We would highly recommend this quintessential Maine home!"
