  • Great place to stay

    "This was our second stay at Folkstone Cottage (2 successive summers). We have been very pleased with our experience each time. In prior years, we had had a difficult time finding family-friendly accommodations close to Bar Harbor. There are many hotels/motels/ cottages in the area, but we needed space to relax during down-time, and to prepare some of our own meals, due to food allergies. This home is very comfortable, and despite all the great things to do in the area, we frequently found ourselves just "hanging out" at the house because it was so comfortable. While it is a bit "off the beaten path," it is still only 10-15 minutes from Bar Harbor and within walking distance of Atlantic Brewing/Mainely Meats, one of our favorite places to eat. While Maine summers are generally not too hot, be aware that there is no air conditioning, as is true of many (if not most) of the rentals in the area. Numerous fans are provided, and although we had relatively hot weather during our stays, things did generally cool down at night. Lynn and Jeff were very responsive to any minor issues, and all appliances worked well. We will definitely be back for our next trip to Acadia!"

  • As comfortable as home

    "Sow's Ear was an absolute delight for our family of 3. It only took one day of close attention to get our 5yo daughter to look and not touch all of the interesting decorations spread around the house. The kids room is adjacent to the stairs so wouldn't recommend for under 3's without bringing a portable gate, but otherwise great. The house is very new and super comfortable. With the windows closed it is super quiet. When open, you get a fantastic airflow. The natural light throughout is also great. Although on a neighborhood side street, it is easy walk into NE Harbor (5 min or less, faster on bike), which also has a new co-working space if you need that sort of thing during your stay. The location is very convenient to everything on the island with easy bus access if you don't want to drive. The kitchen is fully setup for whatever you need and the furniture is newer and comfortable. the gardens are truly remarkable and very relaxing. Having access to the garage for storing bikes was great, so I didn't have to keep them tethered to the car the entire week. Also, don't miss a visit to the Naturalist's Notebook store in NEH. Also learned that the street you come into ties into scenic Sargent's Drive so it makes the drive home and in the morning all that much more appealing when going to other parts of the island."

  • The property was perfect!

    "We had the best time staying at this "camp". It was perfectly set Back off the highway so you felt like you were deep in secluded woods. We walked the beach for hours every day and did not see people and found tons and sea glass and other treasures. Everything you need is provided at the camp! We cooked a lot of our meals and did not have to struggle to find any Utensil or pan necessary. We were not far from all the tourist attractions like Acadia national park and historic bar harbor. We were able to spend the day away from the camp and then have a short drive back to seclusion. There is no shortage of things to do though if you decide just to stay at the camp. We kayaked and spent lots of time just sitting on the deck enjoying the view. During low tide we found so many fun things that washed ashore and tons of creatures out and about. We saw a sea lion, deer, porcupine, and lots of birds. It was a perfect place for us! Bob and Stephanie have an amazing place and you can tell they love to share it with others and it shows in all the extras they provide like the Maine jams and syrup they left for us to sample."

  • Wonderful cottage!

    "We absolutely loved our stay! Barn is a bit rustic. There were 6 in our group and stayed very comfortably in the cottage."
