Everything we had hoped for, and more!

There really isn't anything we could write about our stay at this magical little home that hasn't already been expounded upon by previous reviewers, but we are HomeAway veterans and frequent visitors to New England and can say with 100% certainty that we will ALWAYS look to book the Little Yellow Cottage for our future stays on Mount Desert Island. Thank you, Jeannie and Kathe!!!!!

Little Yellow Cottage (LYC)

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a splendid two week vacation at this delightful place. Reading the other reviews you might wonder is there anything about the Little Yellow Cottage that fails to meet expectations? No. What you’ll find is a perfect, cozy hideaway on the edge of Acadia National Park, close to a rather upbeat little town (Southwest Harbor - SWH) on the rocky coast of Maine. There are so many minute details about the cottage that speak to the care that has gone into its preparation for renters. The interior paint job looks like it was just finished before you arrive. Everything felt “brand new” as we scoped the place out on the first day. We had, for years, rented on Martha’s Vineyard. Here on Mount Desert Island (MDI to the locals) the life is not beachy, but hikey. Acadia astounded us on a daily basis with its mountains, forests, carriage roads, and wildlife. If you like lobster, you’ve come to the right place. SWH has a few lobster pounds – places where you can buy lobsters cooked to take out, or alive and kicking to cook back at the LYC in its LOBSTER POT. We cooked Lenny – a 2.8 pounder. There’s a wonderful morning walk across a causeway into town beside a golf course, and through some woods. And the wi-fi is strong enough to stream the Olympics. Sign up early as we got the last two contiguous weeks this summer when we inquired in February.

Hooray for the little yellow cottage!

  • 5 of 5
The little yellow cottage is wonderful! When I first walked through the cottage, I was surprised how small it was, but after living there a few days, we realized it had everything we could want, and we were always noticing more cute details around the house. Highly recommended for a couple on a trip to the quiet side of MDI.

little yellow heaven

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage was amazing. My boyfriend and I stayed 2weeks. It realy allowed us to relaxe and feel at home. Jeannie and Kathy are great people. They have put lots of love into the cottage, and you can tell. The breakfast nook is such an enchanting room. The place has all the basic needs one may need. Oh, and we left a muffin tin there for anyone who wants to make popovers for breakfast. I hope that you enjoy your stay just as much as we did!

Can't wait to go back to Little Yellow Cottage!

Can't wait to go back to Little Yellow Cottage!

We come to Mt. Desert Island for one week every year. Each year with our sons, we chose a different cottage. The first time we came alone, we rented this one. Having seen it online over the years, we had tucked it away in mind for when we were just 2 people. Once we arrived the first time, we knew we won't ever stay anywhere else!

Located on a very quiet, private street, yet close to town and the gorgeous Causeway Walk, this hidden gem is hard to describe to do it justice. From the light airy rooms (even on a foggy day there seems to be light), to the beautifully framed art and interesting maps on the walls, every detail is perfect. This would be a wonderful honeymoon spot!

The private garden is relaxing whether you are having coffee and planning your day, or reading while you wait to go for dinner.

After staying in several different locations around Mt. Desert Island, we find Southwest Harbor to be our favorite home base. Convenient to everything, not too commercial, not crowded -- it's ideal. The women who own the Yellow Cottage are also helpful with ideas and recommendations for your days and meals. We enjoy Little Notch bakery, Red Sky, and Eat a Pita. A day in Northeast Harbor is a must, usually combined with a walk through the Asticou Azalea Gardens and Thuya Garden, one of our favorite spots.

If you feel like venturing a bit farther, a day trip to Blue Hill, Deer Isle and Stonington is worth the drive. We like to alternate hiking days with walking through the tiny towns and galleries. Last year we finally went to have a drink at the boathouse at the Claremont Hotel...after hearing for years about the view. Amazing! We tried to soak it all up to last us till this July....68 days from now!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We've (sadly) just returned from a delightful week at "The Little Yellow Cottage" and only wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage is charming and welcoming and filled with little touches that you might expect in your own home but not in a vacation rental. From the handmade quilt to the framed maps of the Island, everything is set up with the comfort of guests in mind. We especially enjoyed having a little dining area to enjoy our early breakfast before heading out on hikes - with the sun shining in the huge windows and the pansies on the table we felt we had retreated to a calmer, quieter world. At the same time, whenever we needed a dose of reality, we were thrilled to have wireless internet access!
Thanks to our hosts for providing a delightful vacation home. We hope to be able to return soon!
