HIDDEN GEM, GREAT HOST

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin back in October, I apologize for taking so long to review it George! First of all, George is a great host and very friendly. We got the key and he told us where to go for groceries and a little lay of the area.
As we drove down the peninsula we found our gravel road and were blown away as we pulled up to the cabin. The pictures do not do it justice, absolutely beautiful setting with the only sounds being the ocean and wildlife.
Inside of the cabin is spotless with a comfy bed. Bedroom window looks out over the ocean as well. They have literally thought of everything you may need.
We ended up in the Bar Harbor area 2 of the days exploring, this is about an 1:15 drive or so but it is a beautiful drive and doesn't seem that long.
I could go on and on about how great this place is. Made our first trip to the North East perfect.

SECLUSION BY THE SEA - REVISITED - AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
You drive down a dirt lane, to get to the long gravel driveway to the cottage. You can't see it yet, your heart races with anticipation.....and then you see it in the distance.... The view is stunning.....You are "home".
As always, the cottage was warm, comfortable ...and dry...Yes, it rained for a few days straight. But that does not change the soothing effect Ripley Neck has on your soul. We rode to Eastport, Lubec and Acadia twice. Cadillac Mt. had ferocious, wet and exhilarating weather one day and sunny pleasant and exhilarating weather the next.....My stay was 10 days long this time, still not long enough.
You just don't want to leave once you get here. The deer were regular visitors, dawn and dusk, rain or shine. Watching the tides is your only time piece, you long to walk the beach and eagerly wait till the tide recedes. Magic still resides here, unspoiled by the outside world. If you are looking for a private hideaway from it all, this is the place to be. I know I will return again.

DELIGHTFUL WEEK

  • 5 of 5
Slip away to Carrying Cove
Say goodbye to the ticking clock
Tune your life to the Ripley tides
And let starlight dance in your eyes

Our stay at the Ripley Neck cottage was simply delightful. Except for one trip to the nearby grocery store and an afternoon at Schoodic Point, we were perfectly contented to anchor ourselves at the immaculate, comfortable, and fully-equipped cottage to take it all in. We found the cottage and the surroundings exactly as they were described on the web page and by the owner. We will recommend Ripley Cottage and look forward to a return visit ourselves sometime in the future. Thanks again.

BLESSEDLY PEACEFUL AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Unless one uses binoculars to scan the opposite shore there are no other houses in sight. The cottage offers views of the water from almost every window, the sunrises are spectacular, birds singing in the woods and the only traffic -- lobster boats. When I first drove in, two deer scattered into the woods along the driveway. It's splendid to go to sleep with the sound of waves lapping the shore. Just about anything one might need is provided: cotton linens on the queen bed, fluffy towels in the bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. The local library offers wi fi as well as three public access computers. For inclement weather there are games and books provided. The photos and description of the cottage are just as I found it and the owner can help with questions about local resources. Not far away is "Wreaths Across America," Wild Blueberry Land for anything & everything blueberry, as well as a supermarket. (Although I was disappointed to find that the Columbia Falls supermarket had gone out of business.)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. Just wanted to add that although the Columbia Falls supermarket closed a brand new Hannaford Grocery opened up in the same community. So there is a great grocery nearby.

SECLUSION BY THE SEA - REVISITED

  • 5 of 5
Once again, my visit to Ripley Neck was a most pleasant affair! A whole week this time, yet I should have stayed two. The incredible view is why I return, as well as the comfortable accommodations. The new queen bed downstairs is perfectly positioned to awaken to some fabulous sunrises. Some sunny and seventy degree days began with thick fingers of fog and lobster boats humming along. Standing at the picture window, looking at that view, with coffee in hand in the morning should always be this way! 0f course, walks on the beach were my favorite past time and sitting on the bench, on the stairs to the water, was just the place to watch the tides and wildlife. I know I must return again to this magical place.
