  • Perfect Get Away From It All

    "I was looking for a quiet place to spend a week with my girls (12 and 15) that would be peaceful, fun, and close enough to Bar Harbor to visit but far enough to feel like we were getting away from it all. I really could not have found a more perfect place; John and Liz made us feel so welcomed it was like being in our own home, not a rental, right from the start. The house itself is really beautifully situated; the beach is right down a path out the back steps, the sun sparkles through the windows in the mornings, the stars sparkle at night and the waves, when it's windy, will put you to sleep. It's on a hushed country road with few cars; the quiet in the air is stunning, especially at night. We also fell in love with the dogs - especially Maddie, who we miss - it was like a fringe benefit! Everything we needed was there; bikes to ride and wood for the outdoor fire pit and even fresh eggs from the chickens. We stopped at Tradewinds in Blue Hill on the way for food - which I recommend - but the cottage has what you would need otherwise - towels and sheets and blankets and a kitchen stocked with the basics, pots and pans and utensils, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. Pretty much whatever you need is there, making it a lot easier to unpack and unwind. Liz and John are great hosts, the house is sweet and cozy, and it was as perfect a week as I could have imagined. If you are trying to avoid the bustle of Bar Harbor but want to be close enough to get there for dinner or day trips (about 45 minutes), you can't do better. Liz also recommended a boat trip in Bass Harbor (Island Cruises) which was an absolute must, a great way to spend an afternoon. Thanks Liz and John for helping us make lifelong memories, we hope to come back!"

  • Perfect Maine Getaway

    "This cottage was an ideal size for the two of us and our dog. Having a private beach just steps from the house was absolutely the best part. We walked the shoreline during low tide, swam during hide tide, and had fires on the beach at night. Acadia National Park is only a 45 minute drive away and coming back after a long hike or a day in Bar Harbor to this peaceful setting was simply perfect. We grilled on the back deck most nights and the kitchen is stocked with any supplies you would need. Dee was very accommodating to us and prompt in her responses from the day we booked until the day we left!"

  • Lovely house, lovely location, lovely owners

    "Wonderful house, wonderful owners, great location. Our second visit and we hope it will not be the last. Charming owners who could not be more pleasant and helpful. The house is clearly much loved by the owners Mac and Deb and it shows. The house has everything you could want and more. We spent a couple of evenings sitting by the fire pit with old friends and the odd glass of wine - what could be better? I recommend this house wholeheartedly - but with mixed feelings because we hope to return and don't want to find that someone has booked it when we want it!

  • Peace

    "The cottage (and Dee) are charming! 30 minutes from Acadia for some seriously good hiking, 15 minutes from Ellsworth and Blue Hill for some small town charm. But if you can eat Lobster each day, you don't even need a car, it is less than two miles to Perry's lobster shack..... a nice walk or bike ride! We planned lots of activities but instead spent more than one day, just sitting on the rocky beach taking in the sounds, smells and views. Don't hesitate to book this property."
