My wife, and our friends stayed at the cottage for a week and loved it! We have stay at a lot of places through VRBO and this is the best place by far. We have been to Maine twice now and we learned from the first trip to find a place centrally located, but closest to the place you like the most. It is very close to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and Bangor. The lake and lake views were incredible. Everything you would ever need is at the cottage: Lobster pot (we steamed our first lobsters), BBQ Grill, kayaks, canoe, row boat, Big Screen Hi-def tv, every appliance is state of the art. You honestly never want to leave. The cottage was spotless when we got there, you think you are walking into a model home. The owners own The Drydock Inn and Cafe and the food and service was great! Its worth the trip and Southwest Harbor is a neat little town away from the tourist trendy Bar Harbor. We will be back but probably stay for 2 weeks.
