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!"

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Nice Location near Acadia, but on 'the quietside'

    "We enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse. It was easy to find, clean and well-supplied, and situated just a short drive from Acadia and Bar Harbor. Gail was a great hostess. We'd recommend the farmhouse!"
