Guestbook comments from the owner
This cottage is beautifully maintained, clean and attractively furnished. There is a large lawn and meadow that leads down to a very large expanse of beach. The view from the porch looks over the lawn and water. The view from the master bedroom is of the water and a spectacular sunrise. You don't even have to get out of bed to see it The cottage is shining clean, with comfortable beds and a fire place in case it turns cool. While one can see the bridge that crosses from the main land to Bar Harbor island the traffic sounds did not disturb us. In fact, being close to the bridge meant that we had a very quick and easy ride to everything in Bar Harbor. We had a special treat/activity of going to Wild Iris Farm in Bar Harbor and learning how to drive a cart pulled by a Shire horse. (The kind seen in Downton Abbey.) If you don't want to drive a cart yourself, you can enjoy a ride in down town Bar Harbor in carriage pulled by horses from Wild Iris Farm. We had a wonderful time with lots of things, even when the rain came. The cottage was very cozy when the fog rolled in. This place is a must stay. One final thing. Sue is great. I left a number of things behind in the closet. She arranged to have her cleaning lady send the clothes off the very next day. I will definitely stay here when I come to Bar Harbor next.

COZY COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week here in late August and fell in love with the Acadia area! This home has all the amenities, including a washer/dryer and was spotless. The kitchen was well-stocked and we enjoyed the privacy, yet convenience to Bar Harbor/Acadia. At night, the only sounds are the lapping of waves on the private beach. We even cooked fresh lobsters over the firepit down by the water. We intend on returning next summer and highly recommend this idyllic spot.

PERFECT COTTAGE ON THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I choose this cottage after an exhaustive search for the perfect place to celebrate our marriage. We were not disappointed in any way. Upon our arrival we knew we made the right decision. The cottage was very inviting and cozy. The location was perfect for us since we like to be off the beaten path, but not too far to enjoy the local amenities. It is located about 10 to 15 minutes from many of the local attractions which include Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. It was a perfect base camp to explore the area.

We enjoyed the fire pit on the coast line several evenings during our stay. One of the highlights was steaming lobster over an open fire next to the water. It was a great place to retire during the evening after exploring the many attractions in the area. We hope to return in the future. Thank you Sue and Gordon for sharing your cottage with us.

OUTSTANDING LOCATION AND IMMACULATE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family regularly rents houses when we travel because we like having all of the comforts of home. Therefore, we have seen a number of rental homes over the years. This was, by far, the best property we have ever rented! I'm pretty picky, and often feel slightly disappointed when I enter a rental property for the first time. Typically, the place is less clean than I like or just awkward feeling. Although I end up feeling comfortable, it typically takes a few days. In the beginning, I usually get a little grossed out sitting on the furniture or using the dishes. However, this was not the experience I had at all with this rental property. The house was immaculate when we arrived and Sue and Gordon had added so many personal touches. I immediately felt comfortable in their home and was so happy with the choice we had made. We spent weeks narrowing down rental properties when we planned this trip, and I am confident we made the right choice. This house was perfect for our family of four (2 adults, 9 yr old, 4 yr old). It had everything we needed for our week stay. The location is ideal. It's secluded and private, but also close to everything you need. It's centrally located between Bar Harbor and Ellsworth. The view from the front porch is amazing, as is the view from the master bedroom windows (we saw the sun rise every morning from our bed). The kids loved exploring along the rocky beach and spent hours looking for rocks, shells and crabs. Quite honestly, there is nothing negative that I can say about this property. I highly recommend renting it. You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review we are so pleased you all had such a great time it really is a beautiful spot.
Our Sons loved going there when they were growing up and still do only now with their families. We always loved the privacy of being on a peninsular and a dead end road.
Thank you again and we both hope you will return one day you were great tenants.

AS ADVERTISED; VERY NICE PLACE

  • 4 of 5
This house is as advertised. It was clean, cozy, right on the water, and afforded nice views of the bay and mountains in the distance. The beds were exceptionally comfy and the owners also left us a very nice gift basket upon our arrival. There is a big, grassy lawn, so if you have kids that like to run around a bit, that's a plus. That openness also allows for a great view of the sunrise right from the bedrooms, and it enhances the nighttime stargazing opportunities--which you can view after using the nice fire pit. Our kids--ages 9 and 6--also enjoyed walking along the beach to sample the crabs and other sea life brought in by the tide. It's pretty conveniently located as well: it's about 15 minutes to the Acadia Park entrance and to the town of Bar Harbor. The owner is also very prompt and helpful in responding to email questions.

As other reviewers have noted, and as you can see in the images for the house, a main highway (Highway 3, the main--only?--connector from the mainland to Mt. Desert Island) is fairly close to the house, and this is the one slight drawback to the location. But it is a relatively slight drawback; we agree with the owners' comments that the volume of the traffic does seem to vary somewhat, depending on which way the wind is blowing. Many times, you can't hear it much at all. Perhaps it drops the star rating on this review from a 5 to a 4.5--a small drop. (Indeed, we would probably give it 4.5 stars rather than 4, but these reviews don't allow the half-point option.)

Again, overall, this is a nice house and was, for us, a great base from which to explore Acadia, which we had a great time doing.

FAMILY FUN!

  • 5 of 5
My family had so much fun during our week in the cabin! I completely rediscovered the best Maine has to offer through the eyes of my little daughter as we: bought fresh lobster from a fisherman by the side of the road ($3.99/lb!!!!), boiled them on the fire pit by the water and had a feast, searched for crabs and clams during low tide, spent a day in Acadia, checked out Bar Harbor and went whale watching. Our days were filled with exploration and the nights were for relaxation in our cozy nest. Sunsets and sunrises are to die for! Family friendly and fully stocked. Loved the hotel soaps and shampoo. Wifi reliable and fast, TV with DVDs, lots of personal touches. Thanks, Sue & Gordon, for a beautiful time together as a family.

LL Bean has a local free bus hop on hop off that you can take from a few places not too far away. They allow you to take your bikes as well and they drop you off in the park. You can Kayak or canoe right from our beach and there are several rental companies that deliver right to the house. We can sit on our porch and on a coming tide quite often see seals swimming up into the bay.
