LOVED OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Aisling in August 2008 with our 2 year old son. He loved walking down to the water to watch the ducks, running around in the back yard, and playing with the toys in the house. We'd recommend (for any kind of travel) to take a "white noise" travel clock to help infants sleep sound. The property was very clean; I appreciated the newer model of coffee maker. The owners provided books and pamphlets with restaurant reviews and information about the area.
I'd definitely recommend this cottage to friends-- even those with one or two young children.
It might not be up still, but on our way to Bass Harbor-- coming from Southwest Harbor-- there's a handwritten sign that says "GIANT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES". We followed the sign to a house, and this woman sold us the most delicious cookies known to man or woman. I think Sawyer's Market in SW Harbor carries her cookies too. Also, A & B Naturals in Bar Harbor has an incredible selection of food and natural medicine (if needed) considering the size of the store. Also in Bar Harbor: the Bagel Factory! It's hidden, but if you can get there early, it's worth it.
We really had an incredible time; we'd love to go back and stay at Aisling again. Thank you to the owners for all of the extra amenities.

WONDERFUL MAINE COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
If you want to be on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, this is a great place to unpack for your stay. Walking distance to the ferry, to restaurants, and boat tours. The owners are right next door, so if you needed anything all you had to do was call. The cottage was very clean and well-maintained. There are flowers all around making it so inviting to just sit outside and relax with a good book. If I ever go back to Maine I would try and rent this cottage again. So peaceful!

CLEAN, COZY, COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The owners put their heart and soul into this cottage and it was evident as soon as we walked through the door and saw a personal note and fresh flowers on the table to welcome us. The cottage is simply but beautifully decorated. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything necessary to make home cooked meals, the bedrooms are comfortable and restful with beautiful linens. The bathroom is large, pretty and contains fluffy towels. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching butterflies flitter from flower to flower in the gorgeous gardens while our children practiced their instruments on the balcony off the master bedroom. The free bus stopped right in front of the cottage to whisk us off to our daily adventures. The owners are delightful, generous, informative people. They lent us their great bikes to ride the carriage roads and a lobster pot to cook delicious, gigantic lobsters we purchased from Rich's down the road. The pictures depicted on the website are exacly right. The cottage was even better than we expected or imagined. Thank you Victoria and David for allowing us to have a peaceful, wonderful vacation. We'll be back next August - already counting the days!

P.S. I don't where the person was staying that gave the negative review because it certainly was not at Aisling Cottage!

AUTHENTIC COZY MAINE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
As soon as we walked in the door, we were greeted with a lovely message from the MacDonalds and fresh cut flowers, making us feel warm, welcome, and right at home! The cottage provided us with all the necessary amenities to cook several meals including a terrific lobster dinner! The cottage is quaint, quiet, and within walking distance of the Swan Island Ferry and wildlife excursions! Bass Harbor and Aisling Cottage is on the "quietside" of Mount Desert Island but all destinations of the island (Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, etc) are within an easy drive or Island Explorer bus ride. The owners are very accommodating and accessible. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we are planning to return to Aisling Cottage in the spring! Thank you David, Victoria, Logan and Rosie for making this our best vacation experience! See you in the spring!

Nous avons passé une très belle semaine.
Aisling cottage a tout ce qu'on peut souhaiter. Très propre, hôtes charmants, disponibles, discrets.
Bass harbor, un village authentique loin de la cohorte des touristes et si près de tout, idéal pour les activités de plein air.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Just stayed here for a week with my family of four (including 4 and 1 1/2 year old daughters). We loved it - we felt right at home with all the toys, fresh flowers, and immaculate house. We also enjoyed being on the quieter side of the island, and close to the tide pools at the end of the Wonderland trail! Thanks for a great week! (Also, I would not concern yourself with the one negative review on this site - clearly nothing would have pleased this person - the cottage is great...)
