  • Beautiful home and location.

    "Cook's Cottage was a great place to stay for our family of 10. We loved the sitting room, as you have a terrific view of the harbor. Just a walk down the street to the ferry that takes you to Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor is about an hour drive - more if traffic is heavy, but totally worth the drive. Do the whale and puffin watch in the morning. We saw two humpbacks breaching, and the puffins were adorable. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed."

  • Perfect location

    "We were 2 60-somethings and 3 young adults. We knew Mount Desert Island from previous weekend trips to Maine, but we'd always stayed in a hotel in Bar Harbor. This was a much better plan. The house was perfect for us. We spent our trip hiking in Acadia. So happy to be away from the tourist crush in Bar Harbor, yet within an easy drive of the park and all of Mount Desert's restaurants. The layout of good kitchen plus dining and living areas meant we had plenty of space to hang out together."

  • What a quiet, beautiful, and wonderful place!

    "Without a doubt this was a wonderful place to stay (and I agree with a previous poster- the pictures really don't do it justice!) When I was a kid, my family would always visit Mount Desert Island, and I'm glad I had the chance to visit this beautiful property. First- the location is very good. My favorite part was that I could fly into the Bar Harbor airport and be at the house in under ten minutes. It's still a manageable drive to anywhere on the island too. But the location's best asset is the view westward into the bay. The sunsets were amazing, and there was plenty of room for exploring with a beautiful terraced garden. Each room in the house is designed to look out on the water (the view from the Master Bedroom is great). There is a deck facing westward that was wonderful for grilling too. The house had high ceilings and beautiful wooden walls. As a house it can easily fit eight. There's a room downstairs with TV and a few couches, which are good for lazy nights after hiking, biking, or kayaking. The house is about ten minutes from the town of Somesville, and a little more than twenty minutes by car to Bar Harbor. All the Acadia sights are an easy drive. So it's close enough to everything on the island while remaining it's quiet charm. Since moving south it's gotten harder to make it to Mount Desert Island, but I"m hoping to make it next year."

  • Perfect Rental

    "The bungalow is perfect in every way. Clean, well appointed, and in a great location. Easy access to the Park and minutes from Bar Harbor. Very quiet beautiful neighbor. Thank you Geoff for making this such a great place for our family vacation. It was nice to walk in and find everything we needed after a long drive from North Carolina."
