  • Thankful Cottage - a wonderful retreat

    "Sherry and Ivan Rasmussen have restored this historic home into a delightful refuge. My sister and I agreed we had stepped into our own little home. Set back from West Street along the bustling harbor, Thankful Cottage is in a great location, giving guests access to everything Bar Harbor has to offer: You are in the midst of Acadia National Park -- able to enjoy the beauty of the water and the land. We strongly recommend this as the perfect get away. We enjoyed walking around town, listening to the town band, eating fresh lobster, whale watching and sea kayaking. Sherry and Ivan provided plenty of information for us to experience Bar Harbor to the fullest, and they go out of the way to address every question or concern you may have. Though my sister and I traveled to Bar Harbor to visit family and spend time outside hiking and exploring the harbor, we are also avid fans of the Olympics. One of my former students was competing in Rio and Sherry made sure that the cable TV in the cottage was in tip top working order. We are most thankful for a wonderful week and have already signed-up to return next summer."

  • Great place great location

    "We had a great stay at the Cottage. We love the location which is only a mile away from Jordan pound and it was very quiet at night. Nick was a gracious host. He lives in the house behind the cottage so he is always available when you need him. Nick was absolutely a pleasure to deal with. He is very prompt in sending the contract and returning the deposit. Keep in mind mails going in and out of MDI can be slow (It took 3-4 days to and from NYC). You can tell the place was very well care for. The kitchen was very clean and well stock with all the essential items (including sugars and flour) we needed to prepare our meals. There were no cell (Verizon and AT&T) receptions at the cottage. But it's equipped with high speed internet (~ 20 Mps) and a landline. We found the large binder with all the information (restaurant menus, various activities) very useful. Nick also provided a list of recommended restaurants in the area. There are also various maps and book at the cottage. I personally enjoyed reading the book about the history about the carriage roads. As with many people who stayed in this cottage in the past I will certainly return when I visit Acadia NP again."

  • Grand House and Great Location

    "Our group of senior citizens rented this grand, spacious house for our thirtieth fall reunion. A fine example of the period, the house has been selectively updated with modern conveniences without diminishing its charm. We found it to be very clean and more than adequately furbished for our stay. Being only a short walk from Bar Harbor village and convenient to Arcadia National Park, we found it to be ideally located. Highly recommended."

  • Great spot!

    "This was the perfect cottage for my husband, myself and our dog. It's so quiet, peaceful with loons swimming in the cove right outside our window. Close to everything that Mt. Desert Island has to offer. The cottage had everything we needed and was clean and well maintained. We will definitely try to come back again. Thanks for sharing this lovely spot with us.
