Guestbook comments from the owner
The weather was wonderful every day and warm. Some days had a nice breeze that was great for hiking.



The absolute best restaurant was the Town Hill Bistro on Rt. 102. Loved the lavender brulee and the scallops and gnocchi. Also, Thurstons for lunch was reasonable and very good. Thirsty Whale - excellent pumpkin ale, lobster rolls and whole belly clams. Jordon Pond - lobster stew and popovers.



Sue and Mike have been excellent hosts and this cottage is heavenly. Love the location, so quiet and peaceful and convenient. We Kayaked Hamilton Pond and walked the serene neighborhood. I will recommend this cottage to my friends and family. It has been a wonderful week!!

Great getaway for two

  • 5 of 5
Kelley's Cottage was a perfect place to stay in Bar Harbor! The cottage is clean, and well stocked with kitchen supplies and linens. The back deck is a great place to have coffee in the morning. Bedroom is comfortable and cozy and we slept like rocks after long days of hiking in Acadia. More importantly, the owner could not have been nicer. We cannot wait to return to Bar Harbor and stay at Kelley's again.

Clean, cozy and close to Acadia

  • 5 of 5
Pet friendly, nicely landscaped and well equipped. Nice decor, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed being only 2 miles from the entrance to Acadia where we hiked and watched sunset on Cadillac Mtn. Price affordable and owners are friendly and helpful with suggestions on attractions and dining. We loved the Improv and Side Street Cafe.

Clean, Bright, and Cozy

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Kelley’s cottage. The cottage is comfortable, cozy, and well maintained. We were welcomed with delicious bakery items and vases of lovely lupine flowers. We enjoyed the dining recommendations that the owners provided such as the Sweet Pea Café’ for breakfast and the Side Street Café for lunch or dinner. On our one rainy day we were able to use the washer and dryer on the premises so we went home with very few dirty clothes. The cottage is close to town but out of the fray of the busyness of Bar Harbor. The location is ideal for easy access in and out of Acadia National Park.

My family and I enjoyed the beautiful fall foliage last Oct. The cottage was cozy
( pictures are accurate ), nicely decorated and clean. As a mother, I enjoyed having a washer and dryer available. Owners live on the property so they were easily accessible if we needed anything or to be asked for recommendations on dining and tours. It was convenient to be 3 miles from Acadia Park entrance and to drive less than a mile for a night of mini golf at Pirates Cove and ice cream across the street. Looking forward to our first summer visit. We have already left a deposit to stay a week this June.

Great if you dont want peace/quiet or cleanliness

  • 2 of 5
Lots to say in 2500 characters.
Lets start with the good.
---The owners were very nice. They offered friendly advice on things to do in the area and attractions to see.
---Bar harbor is fantastic. If you can get a good stretch of weather you will love it.
---laundry on premisis
---The cottage is pet friendly, which is pretty awesome if you cant leave a dog at home
---The price was good compared to other cottages in the area.

Now the not so good.
---The cottage was dirty… i mean REALLY dirty. You cannot walk in the bedroom without a gross grimey film forming on the bottom of your feet/socks. The carpet smells like a mixture of mildew, dog urine, and cleaning products (smells like pine sol). There is no cleaning this, it needs to be ripped out. The bathroom is pretty scary too. The undersides of the bathroom shelves are brown with dirt (which you have to look at while sitting on the toilet).
---I was eaten alive during the night by some un-seen bugs in the bedroom. Every morning i would awake to a dozen or more itchy bites. It got to the point where I had to wear bug spray to bed. Yes, bug spray in bed.
---The shower is so small you cannot move without touching the walls or having the gross shower curtain stick to your whole body. Gross.
---The oven and stove cookers were caked with old food which smoked excessively the first time we used them. The owners hid the dirt by putting fresh foil covers underneath the burners to give the appearance of cleanliness.
---The cottage is not 5 mins from bar harbor as advertised, its is closer to 15 mins to the downtown action.
---There is an excessive amount of road noise in the cottage due to close proximity to a major road(less than 100 feet). Even in the middle of the night the noise is constant. The road is between the cottage and the pond and there is a guard rail on the opposite side that amplifies the noise from the cars/trucks/busses that are always going by. I counted the number of cars at 10pm and it averaged 1 car every 2-3 seconds. The noise is clearly heard from the bedroom unless the windows are all closed. If the windows are closed the smell from the rug (see first bullet) is overwhelming.
---There is no privacy whatsoever. All windows look onto other people's windows. There were people walking through the yard pretty regularly who could look right into the cottage.

Overall it wasn't bad but wasn't great. I'd probably choose another place next time.

Owner's Response: I am very saddened to read this review. It's important for guests with issues to bring them to the attention of the owners while they are here. We make every effort to speak to guests after their arrival which we did with this couple.

The bedroom carpet may have been affected by the torrential rain during the past two weeks. It has been cleaned and there is no odor or residue.. The current guests have had no issue with bugs in the bedroom. Perhaps the bites were from taking the dogs out in the yard in the evening.

The cottage is five miles from Bar Harbor not five minutes. The road noise shouldn't be an issue with the air conditioner and fan provided. The cottage windows face the garage which is 100 yards away. No-one can see inside.

We never want our guests to be unhappy but we need to know what the problems are while the guests are here.

Nice.... but sleep could be much better

  • 3 of 5
Kelly's Cottage was nice enough for our needs. It was very well photographed and is less fresh than the decor suggests but the listing is accurate. The location was fine, not too far from Bar Harbor.
The bed, however, was an issue. I was able to sleep rolled to the side but my husband did not fare so well and complained to me about it. I had read that some improvements had been made to the bedding but they were not sufficient for our comfort. We were only slightly aware of the traffic sounds and found that moving the fan into the bedroom helped a lot with that. There was a free-standing sort of air conditioner unit in the den but we chose to sleep with the windows open at night and the fan on.
In all, a good enough stay for the price.

Owner's Response: It is always helpful if issues are addressed when renters are here. Since this comment is not specific with respect to the bed I am unable to respond effectively except to say that the mattress is two years old. I buy firm mattresses because an extra mattress pad will usually soften it enough for those who want a softer mattress.

The furniture in the living room was new this year and is not what is in the picture on line. I will be updating the pictures at the end of the season.

From the Parkadia Exxon station at the head of the island follow Rt 3 for 4 1/4 miles to Salisbury Cove. The Old Bar Harbor Road is on the left and has a sign for the Biological Lab with a shark on it. My property is just after the Eden Baptist Church Parish Hall.
