I was so pleased to discover that everything about the Red Cottage was exactly as advertised. The view and grounds are simply amazing. I arrived and the cottage was extremely clean and had everything you would need. The lake views are stunning at sunset, and the fire pit, facing the lake, is fun for roasting marshmellows at dusk. The cabin is not huge, but it's cozy! It's right off HWY 1, so very easy to find. The only thing I would say is I wished there was wi-fi, as the mobile network isn't great in the woods. I didn't really plan ahead, so would have liked to plan my adventures via a laptop each night. Carol is great and extremely easy to get a hold of in case you need anything. You can't beat this for the price!! Also - Orland is good mid-way point between Mt Desert & Camden. Away from the tourist-ness.
Had a great stay!
