This is a beautiful house, tucked into a quiet cove on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert island. This house is deceptively large, with two cozy bedrooms upstairs and a downstairs master. As a family all traveling together, we were surprised (and grateful!) to see that each bedroom has its own bath, with plenty of towels. Everything was spotless and very comfortable. The owners have taken great care to make your stay comfortable, with wifi, board games, a ping pong table, and a tv with a handful of local channels and DVDs to watch. They also leave some nice brochures and maps for you.
The kitchen is stocked with just about anything you need to cook - there were more than enough pans, utensils, glasses, dishes, etc. for us to make a few meals and snacks at the house.
The location was also perfect for us. Sunsets are indeed lovely at this cottage, and it is close to a few cute restaurants and places to hang out. Mostly we enjoyed the quiet seclusion that this offers. If you want to be in the mix in Bar Harbor this is probably not for you, but if you want nearby park access with a nice quiet retreat at the end of the day, this is a great offering at a very reasonable rate. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it highly to anyone.
