  • Lovely cottage, convenient to everything

    "My husband and 21-year-son and I rented this adorable cottage for the last week in August and had a wonderful time! All the Bar Harbor restaurants and shops are within walking distance, but it was easy to hop in the car and go to Acadia without driving through downtown. The home was spotless, charming, and comfy. Just as important, the owners are friendly and responsive. Can't wait to go back!"

  • Perfect getaway!

    "We loved our stay at head of the harbor. It was the perfect spot to get away. We loved being able to walk to town and the view of the harbor was perfect. We went to Acadia and Bar Harbor several times...less than 30 minutes and the drive is beautiful! Would highly recommend it to anyone, house is comfortable with tons of amenities and thoughtful touches, especially for families!"

  • Small slice of HEAVEN

    "What a wonderful way to spend a week. The home is everything that you need to enjoy the sights and sounds of living on the water in Maine. It has been completely remodeled and there is a water view from every room. Every room has its own thermostat to let everyone sleep in comfort, and the bathroom floors are heated. I can not say enough about Phil (our host) he checked on us 2 or 3 times to make sure we had everything we needed and to give us recomendations on were the best local places to eat. If you want to experiance Maine this is the place to do it. Love it and will go back SOON Skip Merritt"

    "Unbelievable! Superlative; a perfect solution to our dream vacation in Maine. Located in an area surrounded by secluded harbor towns with NO traffic lights! One hour by car to travel to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The view from the house of the cove at sunrise, the ocean at dusk...and stars in the sky at night are breathtaking. The house is off the road and surrounded by mature trees at the edge of the typical rocky coast. The interior decorations, layout are as described and you feel you are "down East". The housekeeping is immaculate, clean and fresh . The decor is detailed with appointments, are picture perfect and yet homey...yet like visiting family. The welcome with wine and the friendship bread was a pleasant surprise. Hanging out, relaxing in the Adirondack chairs, sipping wine...and having time to converse or just read a book...lounge in the hammock and nap...all with a breeze and scent of salty air! Thankful to be away from it all. The desktop photo on my computer now is the photo of the ocean and rocky shore from the house! Views for everywhere are keepers. And what is a vacation without special food adventures? At the house, the kitchen featured CuisinArt, cast iron and a gigantic lobster pot and is well stocked, great for steamed lobster dinners in; or for that occasional special romantic evening dining in. We found lobster available fresh off the boats in the harbor at reduced prices only found in Maine. We had our Boxer/Lab dog along and enjoyed local restaurants for breakfast on occasion, lunches on the wharf, and dinners on the friendly as well. The location provides opportunities to play tourist at Acadia and Bar Harbor, or just enjoy watching the activity of the lobster boats in the harbors, a visit to U.S. Bell...for a dinner bell or quilt? How about lunch on the wharf at Corea Harbor? The locals are friendly and very helpful. Sally is a superb hostess; we travel often and she is outstanding in her professional yet personal manner in providing responsive, timely support and recommendations. We plan to return...the greatest complement we can offer. Thank you for the perfect, memorable vacation location."
