  • Wonderful experience

    "We stayed over Columbus Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The location of the house is amazing, right on the water. The sunsets were gorgeous and we really enjoyed sitting out on the porch in the evening. The house was dog friendly, which was a huge plus because we were able to bring our two dogs. We didn't have the right weather to be able to use the kayaks or row boat, but wandered the beach right in front of the house and did some exploring. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet retreat with amazing views!"

  • AWESOME HOME AWAY FROM HOME

    "The pictures do not completely capture the beauty of this cottage! The grounds and cottage are meticulously maintained and so welcoming. We have been staying here since 2014 and look forward to catching up with the owners every year. It truly is a HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!! The property is close to downtown Bar Harbor and an Acadia National Park entrance. In fact there is a trail from the property to the park if one should choose that route. There is plenty of parking for guests and an overhang roof that protects a motorcycle or bikes if you bring them. It is so quiet and peaceful and there is lawn furniture to relax and listen to nature. You forget how close you are to the rest of the world. The cottage has 2 comfortable bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen (you will find anything you need) the bathroom comes with towels, blowdryer, soap and shampoo. They also have made a washer and dryer available should anyone need that. It is very clean and extremely well maintained not to mention uniquely decorated. The open concept of kitchen, dining and living room with large windows and skylights is delightful. Our dog loves to just look out the windows when she is not enjoying hiking in Acadia or exploring the property. The owners Philip and Astri are very friendly yet respectful of your privacy. They go beyond other owners we have encountered on our travels to Mount Desert/Acadia to ensure your stay at their property is satisfactory for you. They have many books to read, DVD's to watch and games to play. We have had family members visit and they still talk about what a great cottage and spot we had discovered. The only negative is when we pack up to leave. Last year our dog refused to get into the car once we had packed up so we were not the only ones sad to leave. Thank you so much Philip and Astri for sharing such a beautiful cottage with us. It is always a pleasure. Renee, Wayne and Rosie"

  • Good.

    "Our experience was good. The house had age specific things for entertainment. Our kids also enjoyed the stay. Spacious house. Scenic surroundings. The kitchen was so comfortable. It had every thing we needed. The only problem that we faced was the latch of the bathroom door upstairs. It wasnt working."

  • A well situated homely house with a fine kitchen as a convivial focus

    "The house is situated on the quieter side of Mt Desert Island just a few hundred yards from a fine cafe (very good lobster rolls), a decent bar and 2 reasonable restaurants. In addition, there is an excellent wine shop which also sells good cheese and olives. A deli is also there in Southwest Harbor which is not inexpensive but is comprehensive in terms of what it sells and very close.There are walks directly from the house to forest and coast but varied and longer trails are close by. The house centres around the kitchen which is very well equipped. The kitchen provided the social centre for our party and we loved eating and drinking there all together. The house is comfortable and well fitted out. The garden is large and a social focus too, aided of course by the hot tub. The great thing about the house is that after a day out walking, it is a home that you want to go back too, whether it is to stay in all evening or to go out for a drink first or start the evening in the kitchen and then go out. We recommend it highly and would go back there. Mrs Carroll is a very welcoming owner."
