Recent Acadia reviews

  • Great stay on MDI

    "We recently stayed at this wonderful home. The previous reviews did a nice job of capturing the benefits/features of this home so I will hit just a few highlights. Found Southwest Harbor to be very quaint and nice break from Bar Harbor. Good jumping off point to all points on the island. There are a handful of restaurants in town (we enjoyed Eat-a-Pita ... it is much more than pitas). There is a nice wine shop with a wide selection of wine and cheeses. Fire pit in back. Nice way to relax after a full day ... plenty of firewood on hand. Family room very comfy with leather couch and chairs, fireplace, large TV. There is a grocery store in town but if you plan on doing a lot of cooking we recommend that you try Hannaford's in Bar Harbor. Suzanne was great. Easily accessible by phone or email. We would definitely stay here again should we return to the area."

  • 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."

  • Flying Jib in August 2016

    "Overall, we had an excellent week at Flying Jib. We were three families (12 people total - 6 adults, 6 children). We enjoyed the rustic-ness of the old part of the house! The pictures really show what to expect. The kitchen served well, and was well equipped with dishes, cooking items, etc. We used the propane lobster cooker many times during our stay, as well as the grill. The kids loved the option of a pool (heated too!) after a day of sightseeing in Acadia and surrounding areas. Being able to walk to the beach was great (although the path could use a little maintenance - overgrowth). We also walked through the Outlook property to go to the beach area. Really fun at low tide! We were surprised at how nice the view was from the deck/porch. The pictures with the listing don't do it justice! Bathrooms were plentiful for our large group, and the house is very well stocked with lots of towels, extra sheets, dishtowels and pool towels. They also have the house stocked with TP, paper towels, dish soap, etc. John was super helpful in our communications and planning. He responded within just hours every time I sent a question. I do agree with others that the internet could use some enhancing - usable, but slow. Future renters do need to be aware that this is an older home, by the sea, so there are some mold issues (basement area)."
