  • 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!"

  • Second year here - wonderful!

    "This was our second visit to this wonderful property. It is secluded, quiet, the perfect distance from Acadia without being in the midst of a busy tourist town and is equipped with everything you need to be comfortable. We spent a week and hiked several trails in Acadia National Park, took a bio lumenescence kayak excursion in Castine and a photo safari out of Seal Harbor (both highly recommended.) We spent every night gazing at the star-filled sky above the cabin and every morning enjoying the deck and the beautiful lake. On our last morning, we saw the loons we had been hearing almost every day - it seemed they floated by to say hello (and good-bye until next year). Cindy has thought of everything and we highly recommend her property - it was built as a family "camp" and you will feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. Loved it! and plan to return again next year."

  • Enjoyed our stsy at the Parker House.

    "If you are in this neck of woods, you owe it to yourself to.consider the Parker House! I can't think of anything that wasn't provided. Well stocked kitchen with staples and cookware. Nothing was missing. We had a small problem with the wifi connection, but John was on top of it super fast. The house was welcoming and warm. Loved all of the antiques throughout the house. Our dogs took advantage of the huge backyard. Tons of space to run and play. I highly recommend staying at the Parker House."

  • Our October Stay in Maine

    "Things we enjoyed: The coziness of the cottage is to be experienced firsthand. Early morning coffee and tea, enjoying the spectacular view off the deck; watching the early morning fog as it lifts and the magnificent sunrise across the bay. The stillness, peacefulness and fall colors can’t be described with words. Sitting on the deck with a good glass of wine and listening to the sound of the water with an occasional fire in a great fire pit on the beach is a must. Visiting the harbor in Blue Hill to buy fresh lobsters off the boat from a very nice fisherman was a highlight for our trip to Maine. Eating them was even better. Places we visited were Acadia, Winter Harbor, Bass Harbor, Bar Harbor, Seal Harbor, Blue Hill, Ellsworth and Schoodic Peninsula. Some of the high lights were the Harbor Porpoises along Schoodic Peninsula, the views from Cadillac Mountain Summit, The Blue Hill Wine Shop for friendly service; accepting of our dog and a great sandwich and cappuccino. Also very knowledgeable about wine. If you like to cook, visit Roaster Brother cooks store in Ellsworth. We had a wonderful time on a sunset sail with Downeast Windjammer Cruise Lines in Bar Harbor. You can bring your own bottle of wine to enjoy while enjoying the views during sunset. Some of the best food we enjoyed we found at J M Gerrish Café, Winter Harbor, friendly, accepting of our dog and the best blueberry pie ever. Seafood Ketch, Bass Harbor, the best lobster roll and a great location with the dog. Flexit Café in Ellsworth was a nice change of pace. The Fish House Grill on the pier in Bar Harbor was very good food, good service and the best Clam Chowder. Black Dinah Chocolates purchased in Blue Hill at the Fair Winds Fresh Flower shop were exceptional. For a quick bite to eat in a very busy area such as Bar Harbor, Downeast Deli and Box Lunch Co., was a good find. On our way to Winter Harbor, we stopped in Hancock at a place called Sullivan Harbor Farms and found the best maple glazed smoked salmon ever. If you like to knit, Shirley’s Yarns, Crafts and gifts in Hancock had a large variety of yarns, some local hand died yarns. There was also The Yarn Shop on the road to Blue Hill with only the basic’s and in the flower shop in Blue Hill (previously mentioned) had limited supply of yarn but all from Maine and hand died. All of this, Thanks to Dee and the opportunity she gave us by opening up her peace of paradise for us to experience. Thanks again, Dee. Mark and Chris Tribby"
