Perfect location on Mount Desert Island

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Maine. We do all our of research on the internet, and Karen's Cottage was very true to the description on the website. It is in a very convenient location with easy access to all of the sites we wanted to see. Yet, it is in a peaceful, beautiful and relaxing setting. The cottage is very clean, and it was well-stocked with paper products, dish & laundry detergent, etc. Even those small things mean a lot when you are on vacation! I hope we get to come back, and we would certainly stay in Karen's Cottage again.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed my cottage. It is very well equiped with everything you could possably need and it is a very cozy cottage. You are only 400 ft. from the shore so you can go searching for sea glass or sea shells or have a picnic. When the tide is coming in over the hot rocks the water is warm enough to go swimming. You are close to Bar Harbor, only 4 miles and just 1 1/2 miles to Acadia National Pk. The cottage has a 12 x 30 ft. deck with very comfortable deck furniture.

Lovely Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
Karen worked with us with a last minute request to stay at her cottage. We loved it from the moment we arrived. It was very clean, equipped, and comfortable. The kitchen was outstanding-every appliance, serving dish, amenity you could possibly want or need. Settling down in the evenings in the beautiful living room area was great. Recliners and a massive flat screen TV along with plants and knick knacks made it all very homey! We were in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park every day and it was a very easy transit back and forth to the cottage. The ice maker didn't work correctly and Karen fixed that right away. Wi-Fi wasn't available to us. We loved being able to do laundry when we wanted to in the new, modern, efficient, fast washer and dryer. it was also great to not have to pack much for our stay. Karen is kind and generous enough to provide a lot of the little things like dish soap, linens for bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. She even followed up our visit with a phone call to our home to thank us. We found her very accessible and easy going if we had questions or asked for recommendations in the area while we stayed in her cottage. Thank you Karen for a great visit! We would recommend to it to anyone!

This cottage is just like home - because it IS a home. So comfortable, roomy and excellently arranged. Two great recliners in the living room, kitchen has washer, dryer, microwave, dishwasher, gas stove and full sized refrigerator. The beds are comfortable and the quiet makes is easy to sleep at night. A spacious deck with patio furniture and a gas grill makes sitting outside a joy. A 55" TV in the living room and a 36" TV in the master bedroom make it a great place to vacation. Wi-Fi and Internet keeps you connected to the outside world, if that's what you want. I would recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone!!

Very homelike cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay at Karen's cottage. It was a very homelike, comfortable setting and quite private. Many nights we enjoyed sitting outside on the deck. It was close to the water and we enjoyed many days of walking around the residential area. Close enough to Bar Harbor without the congestion. We would highly recommend this cottage for it's convenience, cozy atmosphere and distance to many tourist sites and restaurants.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house for vacation. Very clean, nice big kitchen, conveniently located. We will definitely rent again. Water is right at the end of the street with great views. Very private, quiet street. Nice side yard for dogs. Owner is next door if there are any issues which I thought was great.

A perfect place for the two of us!

  • 5 of 5
Karen's Cottage was a perfect place for the two of us to stay on our first trip back to Mount Desert Island in some time. The charming home was cozy and comfortable with all the amenities anyone could ask for. The place was very clean, neat, and well-kept, and the kitchen was totally outfitted with everything anyone could ever need. Furniture throughout was comfortable with large TV's in the living room and main bedroom a plus. All the photos and description of the property were accurate. The cottage is situated in a tranquil, wooded area, making it pleasant to sit out on the deck to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon beverage. The place is in a great location, making easy access to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and other points of interest on MDI just minutes away. This is a great place for a couple or small family. Definitely recommend Karen's Cottage to others.
