"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."
