  • The BEST place to stay on the island

    "When I say that this was a dream cabin, I mean it. I road trip alone, so was looking for something practical and comfortable, yet secluded and scenic. This cabin went above and beyond. The beds were comfortable, and everything in the kitchen worked perfectly. Having a washer and dryer was awesome...I used it a few times when I got dirty on hikes. It's about 100 steps from the water, and having a private beach is absolutely incredible. I ended each night by having a beer on the dock. It was perfect. Also, you're on the "quiet side" of the island, which is really nice, as Bar Harbor can get NUTS during the weekends and summer months. Ben was incredibly helpful and got back to me quickly. The price can't be beat. I would HIGHLY recommend getting this cabin. When I come back to Maine, I can't imagine staying anywhere else."

  • Beautiful and comfortable home

    "I would recommend this house. We had a great stay. The house is very clean and the area is very quiet which was very nice for 4 busy professionals. Every bedroom has its bathroom. The view is beautiful and the location is perfect to visit Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. One surprise at the end: cleaning fees are deducted from the security deposit which we have never seen before ( the house was left impeccable). In spite of this, I would highly recommend renting this house as it has everything needed for a relaxing and easy vacation."

  • Comfortable, Clean, Convenient and Charming Cottage

    "My husband and I stayed in this lovely cottage for one week and were extremely happy with everything it provided. Everything we needed was there, all we had to provide was food! It is obvious that the owners have put a lot of time and thought into making sure the cottage is a 'home away from home' for whomever stays there. The cottage was extremely clean and we loved the charm of it too with the sloping floors and walls and especially enjoyed the beautiful flowers in the front, it truly is a cottage garden. We loved the convenience of it, being able to walk into town and enjoy the many restaurants and shops that Bar Harbor has to offer and it is only a few minutes drive from the Park with its beauty and trails, carriage roads, and so much more. The owners provided a binder with wonderful information including instructions on appliances etc. in the cottage, recommendations for Restaurants, Hikes, places of interest etc. We enjoyed an amazing dinner at McKays and also a scrumptious breakfast at Side Street Cafe, both of which were recommended. It was nice being able to eat at the cottage and one night we cooked mussels which we collected at Pretty Marsh beach and enjoyed them with a bottle of wine that was left for us as a gift by the owners. This is our fourth visit to Mount Desert Island and we love it more each time we return. There is so much to see and do whether it be in town, the Park or the quiet side of the Island which we love exploring. Of all the places we have stayed over the years, this cottage is truly our favorite and we would definitely stay there again."

  • HOME away from home!

    "Rocco's Cottage was much nicer than it was shown on line! It was clean, convenient, well-appointed and a pleasure to live in for a relaxing week. All things Bar Harbor were within a short walk from the cottage and its "set back" location provided maximum privacy. I brought my two dogs and felt like they were the only two pets ever inside the house because it was so clean! Lisa and Rick are REAL folks with a common-sense, friendly New England approach to everyone and everything. They are a gentle presence if needed and invisible if not. I felt completely at home -TRULY at home in their cottage because they provided everything you could ever need or want while away from home. I will return to Rocko's cottage because this was one of my best vacations, EVER!"
