  • Vacation of a lifetime

    "Our family enjoyed this vacation more than we could have possible imagined. We arrived after dark so waking up at Sunnymead and discovering all the special things about the house and grounds was like Christmas morning! The three bedrooms in the main house were perfect for our son and his children, who are super-early risers. The rest of us (4 adults) were more than cozy and comfortable in our lovely rooms; the house provides so much space for an active family. It was the perfect home-base for all of our park activities (hiking, biking, climbing, etc) as well. Jennifer's delightful touches - the gazebo set for dinner, fresh flowers around and a personal note - made us feel like special guests. We read "Fudge-a-mania" by Judy Blume while there and especially enjoyed identifying the settings Blume referenced in the book. We visited Charlotte's Lobster Pound twice - it was so much fun and DELICIOUS! We appreciated being able to prepare and eat our meals at "home" when we were not out at one of the fabulous eateries. (Beals for lobster, Grumpy's for breakfast) We picked up fresh blueberry pies, fresh crabmeat and more. Heaven! We loved walking to the beach and exploring tidal pools. Truly, we could not have chosen a more perfectly "Maine" cottage and will remember this trip forever."

  • Wonderful Stay

    "We had a great time on MDI. This location was wonderful. It was clean and well-stocked. The owners had provided information about the island and places to check out while we were there and were very accommodating. The pictures and description of the property were accurate and current. We knew we were there after the regular season, but our time on the island couldn't have been better."

  • Amazing stay

    "Rocko's cottage was perfect for the two of us and our dog. Set back from the street behind the main house and was quiet. It has off street parking. A couple of blocks to walk down town, very convenient. Very clean and had all of the amenities that we needed. Lisa and Rick are extremely hospitable and welcoming. Can't wait to go back."

  • Wow.... A perfect vacation home away from home

    "My husband, son and I had a wonderful time at the Elvin's Chalet. You really do not need to bring anything with you except beach towels and that is TRUE! We spent many of our hours out on the back deck basking in the beautiful view of the harbor. We spent our week crawling all over Mt. Desert island. This was our first time staying on the quiet side, and I have found that Southwest Harbor is one of my new favorites. The chalet is an easy drive to anywhere on the island, and just a 5 minute drive (if that) to the Bass Harbor lighthouse. One early evening, we were able to see 2 little fawns coming up the property! What a nice added touch! The bedrooms are very accommodating, and the bed in the master bedroom was SOOO comfy. My husband and I are still missing the comfy bed, and wonderful breezes that come through the house from the harbor. This rental is a must. The owners are wonderful, and little touches in the house were so thoughtful all over. My 19 year old son was happy there was Wi-Fi, and I was in love with the kitchen and huge dinner table. You will not be disappointed by this chalet. We cannot wait to come back again. Missing Maine already."
