This is a wonderful place to stay! The cottage (living quarters are upstairs) is secluded but only a few minutes away from all the restaurants and shops of Bar Harbor: the best of both worlds. Furnishings are comfortable, the kitchen is amazingly well equipped, and everything was spotlessly clean and well-maintained. The owners were very helpful and friendly, giving lots of good suggestions for activities from their own experience. The woods and garden area around the cottage are lovely to explore and lead right to a great walking trail. It is just a few minutes to the spectacular Park Loop Road and many of the sights one must see in Acadia. Thurston's Lobster Pound in Bass Harbor was our favorite restaurant (with Mainely Meat BBQ at the Atlantic Brewery a close second), and two fun and easy walks are the Ocean Trail and the Jordan Pond Trail. If you need to leave the island, Schoodic Peninsula is worth the hour drive. We would 100% recommend Phillip and Astri's beautiful cottage!
