  • 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!"

  • Wonderful Experience

    "We stayed here for a couple of nights looking for the Maine experience, and we definitely found it. From the property, to Ginny, the area, etc. it was a trip of a lifetime. Ginny was very helpful right away. She explained everything in the apartment, gave suggestions about where to eat, warned us about the heavy foot traffic in Bar Harbor due to the cruise ships, and even alerted us to when a full moon was rising. When I think of Maine, I think of this place. The accommodations were everything we wanted; nice beds, kitchen utensils, and a front porch with a view. We loved how secluded it was. We traveled with our friends, and there was more than enough room for four adults. Ginny did a wonderful job with setting this place up for visitors. It was perfect."

  • Cute secluded cottage

    "Very nice quiet property on the lake. My idea of a lake house. wish we had more time to enjoy Arcadia Maine. Heather was easy to communicate with. We had such a nice time. Looking forward to rent the cabin again. Thank you Heather for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home."

  • Great Retreat

    "We came to Maine to explore Acadia Nat'l Park, but wanted to avoid the crowds during down times. The property location was perfect for several reasons: 1)Acadia (which is AMAZING) was a short drive away. 2)Depending on what side of the island we wanted to explore, our home base location - top north, allowed easy access to east side or west side. 3)This prop location is quiet and set back with virtually no traffic getting in and out. The only lights we saw at night were the moon and stars over water. Home is close to Ellsworth for groceries etc.. Property comes with kayaks - awesome to be able to launch right out back door! Very cool lobster shack across the bay - byob! There is one TV, which was not working while we were there (no cable, no basic channels, nothing at all ~ however, this was not a problem for us). Bar Harbor was 20 min drive for shopping, restaurants, bars, etc. The stereo sounded great. The well water tasted good to us (that's what we have at home), although the owners have provided a water dispenser with multiple 5 gallon containers of water available should you prefer that. Kitchen is great. Sunsets are everything previous reviewers described. The Bocci court in front yard was awesome . Owners were great and responded to all my inquiries/questions before we arrived, and without any prompting on my part they sent security dep back quickly. Would love to come back again ~ Thank You Carlton and Kathy."
