  • Wonderful!!!

    "Can't say enough good things about the Chickadee Suite! We were celebrating our anniversary and stayed for two nights, and would have loved to stay longer. It's lovely; tastefully decorated, comfortable in every respect, homey, and practical with its fully equipped kitchen and renovated bath/laundry room. From the back porch we could see Cadillac Mountain by day and millions of stars by night; just beautiful. We were there during the first week in October, and many plants in the pretty hummingbird garden out front were still in bloom. We didn't meet Kevin, but Donna was very nice. She greeted us on our arrival and suggested some things to do and a nearby restaurant, the Chart Room, which was excellent for dinner. There was a little daytime road noise outside from busy Route 3, but inside the suite it was very quiet and serene, and we heard nothing at night. Many thanks to Donna and Kevin for providing such pleasant lodging! We thoroughly enjoyed our short time in the Chickadee Suite, and will definitely try to stay there again next time we're in the area."

  • Lovely home in cental NorthEast Harbor

    "This was my first time ever renting a home instead of staying in hotels while we traveled. To say I was nervous is an understatement. I was looking for a true relaxing experience while we visited Acadia, and I this house provided us that. First and foremost, Tim was very accommodating and understanding of the many questions I had regarding the rental process. In my first email to Tim, I told him that I had never rented a home before and within five minutes I got a phone call. He did everything he could to calm my nervousness, which I appreciated tremendously. I knew from that point I was dealing with a legit homeowner. Even at the last moment, he allowed me to add my small dog to our trip when I initially thought I would be leaving him with family. The property was a perfect size for our party. We traveled with four adults, three teenagers, a three-year-old, and my dog. The two couples each had the same size master bedrooms, so no flipping of a coin was needed, and the teenagers shared a room with ample space and their own beds. We really appreciated the multiple bathrooms when it came time to get ready. The house itself was stocked with more than what we needed to get by. It had everything! I kept saying to myself how much money I saved by not having to buy all those items that made our stay so comfortable. I have officially been converted to a home renter in my travels! The area of the rental was central to all the great things the island had to offer. In my initial search, I thought we had to stay in Bar Harbor to be around all the action. I am SO GLAD we did not! We visited Bar Harbor for one day but it was such a busy place that we never went back. It was just full of shops. Besides, all the fun stuff was around us. We visited all the great spots: Jordans Pond, Cadillac Mountain, The Carriage Trail, etc, but also got to go on a deep sea fishing adventure where the captain pulled up lobster pots and gave everyone on board a lobster. We did our fair share of relaxing too. It was very convenient that just a short walk from the house was a quaint little Main Street with stores full of everything we could need. Also, there was a Walmart and a Shaws a short drive away. We ate out sometimes but also made good use of the BBQ grill on the property. Our last day we decided to explore the SouthWest Harbor. I am so glad we did because we got a chance to take a kayaking trip on Long Pond at sunset. I told Tim we will DEF be back again! THANKS TIM AND FAMILY!"

  • Best views for the fireworks

    "We had a great time staying in Torri's house in Stonington. The location is great with superb views of the harbor and the islands from the living room and a large deck. We found the kitchen well supplied; the cooking stove is gas, not electric, which we always appreciate. The house has comfortable beds. Everything was clean and well arranged when we arrived. We found the cell phone connection patchy on the island, but that in itself can be an opportunity of sorts. The drive to Acadia national park is about 80 mins - the first half of the drive is very beautiful. All in all we had a great, relaxing stay, slept well, saw a lot, and would recommend both the house and Stonington to all our friends."

  • great views, peaceful setting, and room for the entire family

    "Cook's Cottage is a great place to stay. We often have trouble finding enough king and /or queen sized bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate our entire family, and they provided the linens and towels, which was great! Nothing better than arriving after a long day (or two) of traveling to find a welcoming home, and the beds already made! The house also has a wonderful sun porch which was our family's favorite gathering spot, and it had a table that would seat our whole family. The roof deck offers great views of the harbor and the stars at night. Winter Harbor is a peaceful place to stay, while still being within easy reach of Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park (Mount Dessert Island), Finback Alehouse, and other points of interest. We also explored the Schoodic side of Acadia National Park, and took the Schoodic Ferry into Bar Harbor one day – the departure dock is right down the street from the house, which was great. Maine was gorgeous, and this house is great. Thank you!"
