We had a really terrific time: the house was gorgeous and well-equipped, and the grounds, flowers, beach, trees were all bonuses.

Thank you from all of us. We hope to return someday in the future.

PERFECT VACATION

This was our second stay at Cove House. The home has a great layout for our group of 7. We love the quiet of the location, the views out the back, and the quality of the home and furnishings. We would gladly recommend this rental to others!

EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE HOME IN BEAUTIFUL SETTING!

  • 5 of 5
Richard and Mary Ann are wonderful hosts. Lights were left on for night arrival. All modern appliances and well laid out kitchen. Relax in either the den or living room. Quiet setting with ocean views from many windows. Loved master bath view over ocean, working lobster boats, and lots of wildlife. Walked along the private beach. Looked forward to using fireplace and loved the radiant floor heat downstairs, but it did not get cold enough to use either after the first night. We were three couples and we appreciated the 3 queen beds and 3 full baths. Master bed was memory foam and very comfortable. There was a variety of pillows from which to choose. Home was very clean. This home is located in the quietest area of the Quiet Side, but has easy access to everything. We hope to return here again!

As for things nearby, we cooked lobster every other night. I would boil water in kitchen, then take out to side burner on gas grill to cook the lobster in order to not smell up the house. Ate dinner at Red Sky in SWH which has fantastic food. Also loved Quietside Cafe and Little Noch Cafe in SWH. Park closed during our visit, but we found other places to explore. Enjoyed drive up US 1 and onto Schoodic Peninsula to Prospect Harbor. Beautiful town and great photo ops in town and along the way. Hiked the carriage roads from Seal Harbor area. These are private and open to public all the time. Owners just ask for no bikes in this area.

We loved our family reunion at Cove House! Everything about the home, grounds, and location was even better than we expected. The house was very clean, up-to-date, and tasteful with lots of room for the 7 of us. The owners were helpful and friendly. We will definitely rent this home again ... hopefully in 2014!

BEAUTIFUL HOME IN A QUIET SETTING

  • 5 of 5
This home is spacious, well-equipped and beautifully decorated. The beds are very comfortable and two of the upstairs bedrooms have private decks. The views are wonderful, and the beach can be accessed through a short walk down a road adjacent to the property. The location is tucked away, but is convenient to every destination on the island. The owners are responsive and helpful. Cove House is an ideal retreat for your Maine vacation!

AWESOME FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home was even better than the pictures and description. It was very clean and had everything we possibly needed. Outside we enjoyed the beach and the canoe very much. The landscaping was beautiful.

Three generations and many different interests. During the day we hiked, biked, shopped and went for rides. At the end of the day we all went back "home" for supper, talks and games.

A whale watching cruise and lobster boat tour were close by and well worth it.

We purchased live lobster from a local fisherman everyday. It was the best.

It was a fantastic family vacation that we will cherish forever. We hope to return someday soon.

GREAT PROPERTY, LOCATION ON THE "QUIET SIDE"

Great property, location on the "quiet side"
  • 5 of 5
Our large group stayed in the Cove House and Cottage last week (9 stayed on the property and others nearby) and to a person - all loved the property. Clean and spacious, the combined 7 bedrooms and open kitchen/lounge/dining/living area in the larger home afforded us privacy and also a place to gather for our several meals, game-playing, music appreciation and even a visit from a local magician!

The views from the rooms on the East side of the house and cottage were all spectacular of the cove - it was wonderful to see at dawn, dusk and both in sunny weather and what we called "atmospheric" weather (rain).

The side yard of the house provided a good spot to star gaze on clear nights, and the right of way to the beach made for lots of rock and shell hunting. We were surprised to find that the beach-side of the home was natural (vs. landscaped), but in the end, that lent a feeling that we were out in nature, and getting to the beach was just a quick walk away.

The kitchen had all the essentials, including for an impromptu cake-making, and plenty of wine glasses and dishes, etc. for serving meals to a large group. The beds were very comfortable, all with foam toppers and nice linens. All the guests commented on how well they slept - on the quiet side! The only "heads up" I would give is that the upstairs / Master bedroom in the cottage is up a very steep set of stairs - not suitable for the very young or very old. Otherwise the cottage is also quite well equipped, and I can imagine staying there if traveling alone.

25 minutes from Bar Harbor - we had no problems driving to shop, dine or tour. And the SW Harbor grocer was less than 15 mins away.

LOVED this property (this was my 7th stay on Mt. Desert - all rentals), and would definitely stay again if traveling with a large group. Thank you Mary Ann and Richard.
