Recently, I traveled to Bar Harbor, Maine to visit a childhood friend I had not seen in over 30 years. Arriving after dark and exhausted it was so wonderful to discover a sign with my name hand written in great big easy to read letters. Having confirmed this was the place I walked through the six foot privacy gate into a zen like back lot containing this quaint little cottage.
I found the cottage to be clean, orderly and perfect for a couple or solo traveler. Some may prefer using the Futon in the main area to sleep on, however I was absolutely thrilled to find the second bed perched above in a loft accessed by ladder like stairs. It was then that thoughts of my childhood rushed back into my mind. I thought Woo-Hoo!!!, its my bunk bed!!! So, I climbed the stairs sliding over the top and directly into the comfy-cozy bed.
The next morning waking up refreshed I was greeted by Lilly, Robin's amazingly friendly standard poodle. She must have sensed that I loved dogs and immediately wanted me to pet her and play. Shortly after she settled down and Robin emerged from her back door with a hot cup of coffee for me and some good conversation. While personable Robin gave me my space, while also being very accessibly if needed. If I had any complaints they would be that the wifi was rather spotty at times and there were no laundry facilities in the cottage. To be fair regarding the wifi, the town had a major power outage the day after I arrived, which knocked out major communication services in the town for at least a couple of days. In conclusion, Robin and Lilly were great hosts, the price is fair and the location is in easy walking distance to the town pier, as well as all of the interesting shops.
