Best Vacation Cottage
The owner left lights in and outside the house on knowing we would be arriving late our first day. The ambiance of the house embraced us immediately ..... decorated nicely, very comfortable furniture, beds & pillows, little extras in drawers & cabinets that we didn't have to go out to purchase, plenty of lamps for reading, two television sets, washer & dryer, fully loaded kitchen. The view from both upstairs and down was absolutely stunning. The description at HomeAway could not do justice to the actual cottage. It was very clean and inside and out were all very well-maintained. We met the owner when she was in town one day and she is very friendly and nice.
We loved Belfast, especially Weaver's Bakery for breakfast or lunch, and the Co-op is a fun place to pick up food items. The shops in town are varied and the shop owners were very friendly and hospitable.
One of our favorite trips was to Bucksport to Fort Knox and to go up to the top of the observatory tower at the suspension bridge. We also recommend the pizza place at the far end of town from the bridge. The place doesn't look like much, but the pizza was delicious. Chez Michael in Lincolnville was wonderful as was Dip Net at Port Clyde.
Bar Harbor and Freeport were much too touristy for us, but we regret not having gone on to the other side of Acadia National Park which we understand is less crowded and very picturesque.
This was a vacation that we will talk about for years to come. We picked the perfect time of the year to be there: fall foliage was spectacular, cool, sunny days and a week to kick around the area. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone who would prefer something other than a motel room or even a B&B. You will not regret it for a minute.
