  • Comfortable time in this clean and quiet duplex

    "We had a wonderful stay in this home. It was well-cared for and the owner was great to work with. He was prompt to respond to questions and had helpful information for our stay. He is an honest and straight-up guy and clearly cares that your stay is good. The house is a two story duplex with three bedrooms. The beds were comfortable as was the living room furniture. The house was very comfortable to just hang out in. The only reason we deducted one star is because the kitchen is very small. That would not be a problem for those who don't intend to do a lot of cooking, but it made meal preparation and clean up more challenging since we did most of our meals at home for our family of four. They did have plenty of nice dishes and tableware as well as a lobster pot for those who would want to prepare their own. The small toaster oven even has a convection setting, although it is obviously too small for baking a chicken, making a pie, etc. The owner has provided 5 bicycles for renters to use, and we had a great ride around the Acadia Park on the Schoodic Peninsula side. There was no way to adjust the heights of the seats for those bikes needing a wrench, and so it would be a nice addition to have one available. A couple of the bikes need a little work on the gear shift mechanisms, especially if one plans to take a really long ride. They worked well enough for our shorter tour, and we had a good time. They have a new fire pit in the back, and although we bought wood to use, never got to try it out. We left the wood for the next renters, but it does look like it would be a fun place to sit around and relax in the evening. There is a small grocery store in Winter Harbor with decent fruits and vegetables, and they have a small but nice farmer's market on Tuesday mornings. The Hannaford grocery in Ellsworth has everything you can want. Winter Harbor is very small, quiet and cute. We ate a really nice lunch at the J. M. Gerrish restaurant. It took about an hour to get to Mt. Desert Island where we did a lot of hiking. We appreciated coming back to the peacefulness of Winter Harbor after the hustle in Bar Harbor and the Park. We would definitely recommend this home and would be happy to stay there again. It is comfortable to live in and the owner is excellent."

  • Best Part of Our Trip

    "Words can not describe the beauty of this property. We had five adults visiting Maine and Canada. We couldn't wait to get back each evening to see the starts and fall asleep to cool air and comfortable beds. The landscaping and design was amazing. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for beauty, peace and privacy."

  • Peaceful scenic area

    "We find late September is an excellent time to visit the Maine coast, and this was a perfect location. Hiking in Schoodic Peninsula area of Acadia National Park was amazing with both old and newly created trails. The residence on Summer Harbor Road was very warm and inviting. The location was just outside the village which made for easy walking for shopping and meals when walking was the chosen mode of travel. A quiet, peaceful location well kept with plenty of interior room."

  • Cook's Cottage Wonderful Vacation Home!

    "My family just returned from a wonder vacation at Cook's Cottage in Winter Harbor, ME. This was a fabulous vacation home. This home has charm and character and plenty of space for our large family of 8 to enjoy themselves. Pictures inside don't do this home justice, it is much prettier inside than the pictures show and we were delighted that it was better than what we thought! Each room is beautifully decorated with all high end furnishings, sheets/towels and the kitchen with it's charm has everything you need from beautiful dishes to cookware etc. Everyone enjoyed their own room and the house has lots of bathrooms. When at the house the roof top deck was a favorite and the sun room overlooking the water had the most incredible breezes. It was a favorite spot for playing games at night! The views are terrific! The quiet little town has everything we needed, delicious restaurants, pottery/art/and craft shops and the 5&10! The bike rental shop was closed, but the bike shop at the Ferry lead us to a wonderful Sea Kayaking instructor in Hancock a short distance away who made the adventure on the water to see the seals a great experience! Bar Harbor and Acadia just a short drive away for day trips, dinner, and fire works!! Our family made lots of great memories at Cook's Cottage and we are looking forward to returning!"
