Our family of four was very comfortable at Ripples Cottage for our week on MDI. It's peaceful, clean, grounds are well kept and we were able to use the garage to store our bikes and beach gear which was a pleasant surprise we weren't expecting. We all slept great which helped out with our busy week. Our favorite hike of the week was at Beech Mountain just a couple minutes from the house. We spent a couple days at Sand Beach in Acadia which is still a hit with the kids (ok, parents too!), biked the carriage trails, saw a comedy show and went back to some of our favorite restaurants (Jack Russell's Steakhouse, West St Cafe and Geddys). Bobbie, the owner, was excellent to deal with via email as well as in person. We are already looking forward to August 2015 and renting this property again. We can't think of a better place to spend a week as a family!
