CHARMING COTTAGE - A PERFECT RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at the Central House Cottage and it was a wonderful week away. From the minute we pulled in the driveway and stepped through the door, we knew it was an ideal place to spend our vacation. The cottage was charming and quaint and lends itself to coziness and relaxation. And the best part was that we were able to bring our Golden Retriever, Henley, along with us! He was unsure of the spiral staircase at first, but he got the hang of it after the first day.

The location was great - walking distance to restaurants, shops and the upper town dock - and only a short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia. We met so many nice people and greatly enjoyed our morning and evening walks through the town. I could have sat at the docks forever just smelling the ocean air and channeling the tranquility of the harbor. It was so nice to come home to the cottage after a day of hiking and exploring excursions and just unwind with all the comforts of home. We took full advantage of the outdoor patio area and loved being able to cook dinner on the grill.

If you are looking for quiet, then this is the place for you. It is the best sleep that we have had in a long time! A perfect place to disconnect, recharge, and just breathe. Although we didn't get to meet Barbara and John, they were wonderful to deal with and go the extra mile to make sure that their guests are comfortable. This was a great place to call home for a week and we will definitely stay again. Thanks for the memories!

PEACEFUL HAVEN

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic cottage! Tucked back in quiet Southwest Harbor, my wife and I found the perfect place to base ourselves for future visits to Acadia. Pictures don't tell the whole story. This little home is as neat as a pin with every single amenity that you could possibly need. Fully applianced, all utensils, gas grill, pots/pans.... everything you need to prepare meals at home, or partake in some great dining at the area restaurants that are just a sort stroll away. The cottage was also a great place to return to after a long day of some top-notch hiking in Arcadia. The king size bed was so cozy and the bedroom (which is accessed by a cool spiral staircase) is really spacious with it's own balcony to sit and enjoy a bottle of vino or a cup of joe. The owners, John and Barbara, were very accomodating but not intrusive. In fact, we would've loved to have met them so we can give our personal thanks. But there will be a next time, I'm sure! Places to see........ definitely hiking. See as much of Acadia as possible.... Bee Hive Trail, Cadillac Mtn and Precipice Trail if open... John and Barbara provide a list of trails to explore and restaurants to dine at and much more info... and at the end of the day, take a short ride to Bass Harbor to Capt Nemo's to have a cold one and schmooze with the locals. Such great fun and a great stay. We'll definitely return!

WHAT A WONDERFUL ENCHANTING HOUSE AND GARDEN!

  • 5 of 5
When you drive down the driveway for the first time, you will see an adorable
doll-house like cottage and you just can't believe how pretty it is!
There are flowers everywhere and very nice rock gardens. At first you think the cottage is small but once you open the front door you will see how wrong your first impression was! The house is well decorated, spotless and has modern appliances.
The bedroom and bathroom are upstairs. The bathroom is very nice and spotless and the bedroom has high ceilings and there is no need for AC.
For me, one of the nicest parts of staying here was going out to the back patio early in the morning to draw in my sketchbook. The back patio area is private and very cozy. I know that we will return soon. We absolutely loved staying in this house!

RELAXING TIME IN SW HARBOR

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were very pleased with the cottage! It's the perfect size for two people. The kitchen is well stocked, and the bedroom is awesome. Within walking distance to a few food markets, restaurants and bars. About 15 minutes from Bar Harbor.

The owner was very good about keeping in contact in the time leading up to our trip as well.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this beautiful spot in Southwest Harbor! The 'other' side of the island is the place to go for fabulous food and a small town feel. The park venues are all very close by.
This home is extremely clean, comfortable and well appointed. It makes other rentals pale in comparison.
The town is right down the street (market, restaurants, shops). This location is great for a stroll and is so close to the ocean. We wished we could have stayed longer. Our dog loved it too!
Barbara was so nice to us and very helpful too.
Thank you!

A PERFECT TREEHOUSE COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here while "rehabing" our future in-town home. This cottage is clean and warm with a comfortable bed that I sunk my weary bones into each night after a delightful hot shower to wash away the grime of rehab. I felt like I was entering the Keebler elves' private cookie tree house each night as I climbed up the spiral staircase to the awesome glass tiled shower and pine-ceiling bedroom. The golden yellow maple leaves that filled the bedroom windows fell off while we were there, raining down on the small private garden outside the kitchen. We enjoyed home-cooked meals with ingredients from Sawyer's Market and take-out from Chow Maine, all within walking distance. (Chow Maine even offers delicious gluten-free options, try the Pad thai!) Thank-you to Barbara, the owner, and to Paula Dunbar, our Realtor for a perfect place to stay!!
