  • Wonderful views, peaceful setting

    "The property was just right for our stay and the view out back was incredible. We had a few issues with our stay due to construction next door, but the owner was responsive and we very much appreciated her proactive efforts."

  • Our home away from home

    "My family has been vacationing at Napier Cottage since 2007. Once again this year, Anne provided incredible hospitality even including produce from her garden. The house is wonderfully comfortable for our large family and full of books, movies and other treats to make our vacation especially relaxing. We love the views over Southwest Harbor, and the gazebo is a delightful place to have dinner. We plan to return to Napier Cottage next year and every year for the foreseeable future. Thank you, Anne, for making us so at home."

  • Flying Jib in August 2016

    "Overall, we had an excellent week at Flying Jib. We were three families (12 people total - 6 adults, 6 children). We enjoyed the rustic-ness of the old part of the house! The pictures really show what to expect. The kitchen served well, and was well equipped with dishes, cooking items, etc. We used the propane lobster cooker many times during our stay, as well as the grill. The kids loved the option of a pool (heated too!) after a day of sightseeing in Acadia and surrounding areas. Being able to walk to the beach was great (although the path could use a little maintenance - overgrowth). We also walked through the Outlook property to go to the beach area. Really fun at low tide! We were surprised at how nice the view was from the deck/porch. The pictures with the listing don't do it justice! Bathrooms were plentiful for our large group, and the house is very well stocked with lots of towels, extra sheets, dishtowels and pool towels. They also have the house stocked with TP, paper towels, dish soap, etc. John was super helpful in our communications and planning. He responded within just hours every time I sent a question. I do agree with others that the internet could use some enhancing - usable, but slow. Future renters do need to be aware that this is an older home, by the sea, so there are some mold issues (basement area)."

  • Comfortable and peaceful.

    "Enjoyed our time at Bernard. The house was warm and inviting. Watching the lobster boats coming and going was very quiet and peaceful. The house was equipped and clean. It was nice to have Thurston lobster restaurant about a block away. Other eateries and shopping are about 15 minutes away. If you are looking for a place that is off the beaten path, this is the home for you. I would stay there again for the peaceful area."
