  • Ideal getaway!!!

    "My husband and I have been going to Mt. Desert Island for over 45 years to enjoy the spectacular ocean walks and views, mountains, and lakes that the island offers. As much as we loved our twice (or thrice) annual trips to Acadia, the noisy motels/hotels and long restaurant lines were becoming tiresome and diminished our level of enjoyment. We'd often rented cottages elsewhere but had never found a cottage in the Bar Harbor area that we liked until we stumbled upon Paul's Cottage. What we ideally had wanted was a cottage on the ocean with a fireplace that offered both privacy and easy access to Acadia Park. After spending a fall and spring week in Paul's Cottage this past year, we have found it a perfect fit for us, offering many amenities including the following. - situated right on the shore with stunning westerly island and sunset views - welcoming, friendly, and accommodating owners (available but not intrusive) - a large updated kitchen not wanting for anything - fresh lobster and other seafood, produce, groceries, etc. available within a short drive - very good restaurants (especially in season) if desired - Acadia Park sites within easy driving distance - various books and games to enjoy by the huge fireplace (endless supply of firewood available) or on the spacious deck overlooking the water - the Southwest Harbor Library issues guest passes for non-residents for supplemental reading choices We are very much looking forward to our two-week stay this fall and are considering a winter visit at some point."

  • Sure, we would love to come back !!

    "We arrived on a cold, rainy day:with 2kids, 2 teenagers, parents and grandparents. All of us loved this house ,(with garage, fireplace, hot tub plus bank beds for the kids), from the check in to the last minute. On the first evening the owner promptly answered our call with help how to start the fire place. The house is great for hot or cold weather, clean, beautiful and well maintained. Excellent location for even just hanging out and/or exploring by foot or on bicycles the beautiful surroundings and close by hiking trails. To all of the previous reviews I would say now, Yes and Amen. I would recommended this rental to my friends and family. Danuta from Las Cruces, NM"

  • Perfect for family gathering

    "This last June, my wife and I, our children and our children’s children, all 20 of us, spent a delightful June week at Pleasant River Farm on Vinalhaven Island, Maine. The property consisted of a large two story farmhouse decorated with numerous wonderful watercolors by the owner. Added to this was an even bigger open barn with swings, ping pong, picnic tables and plenty of space to just play in. At the back of the barn was another living space with a second kitchen, and 2 bedrooms that could sleep eight. Both buildings had large decks to enjoy. We were well taken care of by the amazing caretaker who answered our every question, took us to see fireworks, and helped us get lobster. There was a huge lawn to play games on and a short walk to water for using the available kayak and canoe. We just loved this indoor and outdoor space. Vinalhaven Island itself had numerous hikes to enjoy, an interesting town just two miles from our farmhouse, quarries to swim in and as much lobster as you could ever eat. We’d recommend this stay to anyone and are seriously considering returning for a second visit."
