  • Authentic Maine Cottage Peaceful and Tranquil

    "This little cottage on Toddy Pond was just what we were looking for. It's close to many sights and activities in the area: Acadia, The Pennobscot Bridge Observatory and Fort Knox, and multitude of scenic views that would pop up when you least expected while travelling the countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed our floaties in Toddy Pond on a lazy afternoon and listening to the Loons in the evening. We dined at Harbor View in Bucksport, Testas in Bar Harbor, and celebrated my 55th birthday at The Jordon Pond House. Horace and Carol were very gracious hosts giving suggestions on local sights and sharing the history behind their gorgeous property. We wish our 4 night stay could have been longer. We highly recommend this little cottage for anyone wanting a quiet, secluded getaway."

  • True Taste of Country

    "This was our first visit to this part of Maine, and we fell in love with the whole Mount Desert Island area but especially with Acadia. We enjoyed the view from Cadillac Mountain, but especially loved getting up close and personal with the ocean, at Thunder Hole and at the tide pools at Wonderland. We went on an awesome whale-watching tour out of Bar Harbor and enjoyed walking around, soaking up the touristy atmosphere of the town. We also made a trip to Fort Knox and the Penobscot Observatory, both of which were impressive. Since we were only in the area for 3 days, we spent most of our time out and about, but what time we did have at the house was great - it had everything we needed except drinking water, which was easily remedied. The property is beautiful and there isn't a neighbor in sight, which was nice. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any wildlife around the house, just a woodpecker and other birds. There's an extensive collection of books of all sorts in the front hall for your reading pleasure, along with games and a few toys. The house was a comfortable temperature for the most part; the fans came in handy for making the bedrooms comfortable for sleeping. The new refrigerator is freaking awesome, and it was so handy to have a washer and dryer on site. We also really appreciated having a cooler and some already frozen "blue ice" we could borrow. On the downside, the downstairs shower didn't have much water pressure (I didn't try the upstairs one), and the water tends to smell a bit . . . cottage-y . . . but no big deal. It was a bit inconvenient not to have cell phone service, but the homeowners have made sure there is a landline available. Wi-fi wassn't working great for us - sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and sometimes not at all. Same with Netflix. Nothing that was a deal breaker, and we'd come back in a heartbeat to enjoy this taste of Maine country living and to be so conveniently located by Bar Harbor and Acadia."

  • Spacious property located in the heart of Bar Harbor.

    "Summerside Cottage is a nice two-story, 4-bedroom home with great access to the town of Bar Harbor. My family of 7 adults and one baby were very comfortable here and really enjoyed our stay and all that Bar Harbor has to offer. Property is well-maintained, instructions are clear, customer service was fantastic, in advance of our trip, and I would highly recommend this property to other families. My only suggestion would be some floor fans in each bedroom to help circulate the air at night. Hands down, this was a fantastic place to stay for our entire family!"

  • Perfect location

    "We were 2 60-somethings and 3 young adults. We knew Mount Desert Island from previous weekend trips to Maine, but we'd always stayed in a hotel in Bar Harbor. This was a much better plan. The house was perfect for us. We spent our trip hiking in Acadia. So happy to be away from the tourist crush in Bar Harbor, yet within an easy drive of the park and all of Mount Desert's restaurants. The layout of good kitchen plus dining and living areas meant we had plenty of space to hang out together."
