Guestbook comments from the manager
Dear Hazel,

If we judged our first vacation in Maine by the weather this week - we would not return. However, your warm, cozy, more than all the comforts of home cottage made up for it. If your ever in Florida, give us a call.

Thanks again.

I grew up in Bar Harbor and lived in the house just next door. We began renting the cottage in the 80's for 6mos

out of the year to help pay for the mortgage and insurance.

We spend the summer months at Beachhill Pond in Otis, Maine with our two english springer spaniels. We are both retired now but we don't go to Florida winters. We enjoy the 4 seasons on MDI with our family and friends. We are very fortunate to have had such nice renters over the years that have respected our house and have returned year after year to enjoy the Island. For their return patronage and repect for our home we are truly greatful.

Hazel Alley purchased this cottage in 1974

Our cottage is a home away from home. We provide everything you need to make your vacation complete. This includes linens, dish and laundry soaps, pots, pans, gas grill, washer & dryer, Lobster cooker and much much more.

Perfect Spot for Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Cove Cottage for our family vacation. In conjunction with touring New England, we spent a week in Bar Harbor. The home was perfect! Clean, stocked, and conveniently located, we spent days in Acadia and in town.

The cottage is located near the upper entrance to Acadia and super convenient to town. There is a grocery store down town and many restaurants to supplement. We hiked, swam, rented bikes, fished, whale watched, played mini golf, visited tide pools, and shopped.

The cottage was a great place to unwind after a busy day. Comfortable beds, cable TV, plenty of towels, wifi, located across from a beach - all wonderful!

Owner was very accommodating and provided quick answers. Deposit refunded quickly. We had a marvelous time - thank you!!!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house for our family and we can't wait to go back! It is SO clean and comfortable. You can't beat the location, especially if you will be taking advantage of the Island Explorer bus, which departs from the very close Hulls Cove Visitor Center. We have 2 children and they looked forward to an afternoon swim after hiking each day. I wish I could give it more stars - it was ideal in every way.

Great location, great rental!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have picked a greater location! The house was perfect for my husband, myself and our two daughters. The house was clean, well stocked of anticipated supplies. There is a nice sized side yard for the kids to play in and the driveway was large enough for them to scooter in as well!

We just returned home this weekend and we're all ready to book our vacation for next year in the same house! The view is outstanding, and we had no issues leaving our windows open at night. It's nice and quiet. We were only a few minutes from downtown Bar Harbor and the drive is just beautiful.

We did frequent the pizza shop that is down the street and the prices were very reasonable and we also ate at the restaurant across the street and the prices were not overpriced.

Highly recommend this house and the area in general. We all had an amazing vacation and did not want to leave!

Hazel does an amazing job with everything that she has at the house for you to use!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5
This was exactly as advertised! We loved the house, the location and the entire area! Very close to the Acadia entrance with a great restaurant right across the road. The owners were very gracious and the one tiny problem we encountered was fixed immediately. We would certainly rent it again. And contrary to some of the other reviews, we slept with the windows open and traffic was not a problem in the least!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful two-week vacation in Bar Harbor. The house was perfect for our family, (family of four, including two teenage daughters). The house was very clean & met all our needs. We swam at the pool almost every day & enjoyed Acadia National Park, shopping, hiking, kayaking & the whale watch tour. Will definitely consider coming back.

Mount Desert Island offers a wealth of activities for all ages. You can hike the carriage trails, take in the spectacular views from Cadillac Mountain or enjoy the day at Sand Beach. The 'Island Explorer' bus service is free to all riders and it makes regular hourly stops throughout the island and the park. Shopping is always a popular activity and Bar Harbor offers all of this and more. Whether it be a leisurely lunch at a sidewalk cafe, a quiet movie at one of the two theaters, or strolling though the many shops and galleries you can always find something to do. There are sightseeing and whale watcher cruises available from the town pier or you could arrange to spend a few hours aboard a 'working lobster boat.' Maybe you would just like walking the beaches searching for sea glass or playing with the sand crabs you find hiding under the seaweed. Whatever you enjoy doing its all within easy access from our cottage in the cove.

Other Activities: hiking, shelling, Kayaking Scenic ocean cruises, Golf,

Acadia National Park. Horse drawn carriage rides within

Acadia. Adventure Golf, Lobster museum,Fine dining, Shopping

Biking, Scooter rentals , etc.etc.
