Guestbook comments from the manager

"Sitting on the screened porch reading... This cottage is wonderful ~ beautiful. We love all the art, the surprises like the old shutters on the porch and the "coat rack" by the door... these things add so much pleasure."

Lovely cottage, convenient location

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Acadia for over 30 years and this was the second time we rented at this location. It was our first time in Jupiter Cottage (our first stay was in Hawthorn). Both were bright, immaculate, and well appointed, the grounds are meticulously maintained. The location is quiet and secluded, but only a few hundred yards from the main road and the Sound. Somesville is centrally located on Mount Desert Island and a short drive to everything. Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Southwest Harbor are all just a few miles away, as are all the attractions of Acadia NP.

The owner lives on site and is always available is to answer questions or offer assistance. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for an easily accessible, quiet, well maintained place to spend their vacation. There are no negatives. We look forward to our next stay in Jupiter Cottage.

Staying at Juniper

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in Juniper Cottage for 1-3 weeks each summer for at least 5 years. Being there is always one of the high points of the summer. The description is very clear and accurate; it is quiet, clean, comfy, and peaceful. Ken and Marilee are very welcoming and helpful. Acadia Park with all its attractions is just a short drive away. Perfect!

Owner's Response: We are delighted to have you return every year. It means so much to us to share new discoveries, and there are many here even after our decades of hiking in Acadia. Thank you for your words of appreciation.

Perfect little house!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I continue to come back here year after year. This cottage is a perfect little house to stay in and we were quite comfortable for our two week stay. Everything is well thought out, from the decor, to the fresh flowers in each room, to the information provided on all there is to do in the area. We had access to beach cahirs and a grill also.The screened-in front porch is the perfect spot for a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. We used it a lot! There is also a gas "wood" stove which makes things really cozy on a cool mMaine night.It's only a ten minute ride to Bar Harbor or tho the beach. Acadia National Park is fabulous and that is a quick ride too! We love Juniper and we will keep this as an annual trip as long as we can!

Charming. Everything you need. Best location ever!

  • 5 of 5
This place has everything you need for a stay on Mt Desert Island. It is situated in the best possible location for those who don't want to JUST see Bar Harbor. Quiet and out-of-the-way feel, but RIGHT off the main road. The cottage is well equipped and the Owner is friendly and full of great advice for first timers! We managed to do absolutely everything we wanted to do while visiting Maine.

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this cottage! It was everything we expected and more, after looking at the website-clean,open,cozy-and very private!There were fresh flowers,cut from the gardens outside, in the living room and bedroom, and the decor was charming.We stayed for two weeks and had everything available to us, including beach chairs and a small grill. There is easy access to all areas of the island and the owners of the cottages provide maps and info for the main attractions and some off the beaten path as well. We loved the beaches, hiking trails and restaurants. Everything was great! We booked again for next year for another two weeks!!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Juniper Cottage was adorable, very quaint with everything we needed. It was in the perfect location from Bar Harbor. It was only about 10 minutes away. Right up the block is the Somesville Bridge and pond. It is a lovely place. The location of the cottage is also very private.

The owner was very helpful and pleasant. We were very happy with our stay there.

Somesville is virtually surrounded by Acadia National Park. The village itself is right on Somes Sound, the natural fjord that comes up to the center of the island. You can walk to the Somesville Landing from our property and sit by the ocean and watch the boats coming into the harbor as well as the abundant wildlife, including bald eagles and busy ospreys. We have an outstanding repertory theater in the village, and the island in general is alive all season with music, art, lobster festivals, Acadia National Park events, and endless fresh and saltwater activities: schooner excursions, whale watches, kayaking tours, canoe rentals, and miles of hiking trails.
