INVITING CABIN IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
This cabin in the woods was remarkably inviting for our family reunion. Light, bright interior in pine wood, clean, tastefully decorated with comfort in mind, complete kitchen, and a screened porch fronting on pine woods that we especially enjoyed. Within walking distance are tennis courts, beach, town wharf and supurb dining at country inn. We enjoyed biking, kayaking, beach combing, berry picking along quiet country roads and all that Acadia National Park has to offer. Owner was most helpful and pleasant to work with. A great private getaway or base for exploring the Maine coast. We did both.

COULDN'T ASK FOR MORE....

Couldn't ask for more....
  • 5 of 5
We arrived later in the season with our two dogs. It was everything and more than expected. The weather had been relatively warm but the lovely wood stove was started first thing in the a.m. and again in the evening. The kitchen didn't lack a thing, and we found it was more fun to cook in and enjoy the ambiance of the cottage and the woods than travel to a restaurant although there were good places to eat in the area. This is the type of vacation home where you have some supplies left by others, and you can use them, then leave your extras or make replacements to leave for the next renters. The glassed in sun porch with sky roof was nice to sit out on while sun rays were dancing through the tree branches. We and the dogs made several trips to the private beach through the woods. The view of Cadillac and other mountains on Mt. Dessert Island was beautiful. Our favorite place to visit was Acadia Nat'l Park at Schoodic Point which was far less populated than a visit to the main park on Mt. Dessert Isle. At Schoodic, only a few minutes away, we picnicked close to the water and got some lovely views motoring around the Point.
We are very grateful to the owners for being so accessible for questions and details when needed and for accepting our beloved, well-traveled canines.
We hated to leave as the cottage felt like home and we relaxed so well. We recommend this cottage to anyone who likes a bit of privacy and the wonders of nature, but is willing to travel 1/2 hour on either side of Hancock for breathtaking scenes in both parts of Acadia Nat'l Park and surrounding areas.

LOVELY QUIET HOUSE IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
This house was clean and well laid out. It had very comfortable beds, great hot water, good kitchen, excellent lighting and a charming wood stove. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries. Because the house is nestled in the woods, it felt very private. Though not on the shore, it is close to it as well as to major attractions in the area. I would certainly recommend this to anyone!

AMAZING COTTAGE GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We loved hanging out in the sun room, wandering on the beach across the street and finding sea stars, and cooking in the well stocked kitchen. The location is magical -- you don't have to go anywhere: but it's also close enough to Acadia that it isn't a major undertaking to go several times a week. The cottage is clean, there's plenty of space, good books to read on the shelves, and plenty of information on everything from local cheese to local kayaking. We and our two teenager all had a great two weeks!

FAMILY VACATION JUNE 2013

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The Cottage had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was very clean and comfortable. The fireplace was great on the couple of nights we used it. It was nice and quite but also close to stores and sight seeing areas. The beach was right cross the street and the owner and her family were very helpful if you needed assistance. We visited Acarida state park and the Tidal falls park. Both places are to relax and have a picnic if you want. We spent a lot of time walking along the beach our son took some great picture's of sea stars and bald eagle. He also found a bunch of Sand Dollars. We like to cook so we ate in but saw a bunch of restaurants in the area. The weather was mixed for the most part. It was comfortable, there were a couple unusually warm days But that made it even more pleasant for exploring the beach. The community itself was nice and friendly. If you are looking for some place where you can relax and spend time with your family but want to be close to activities this is a nice place to stay. If you need internet connection the wifi worked great here. We defiantly would like to return in the future. And I highly recommend that you consider renting this wonderful place. Thanks for letting us visit your cottage!
