While the house is rather small, it accommodated our group well. Only two problems: the house had a musty smell - obviously because of water in the basement. It rained one day and there was about 3 inches of water around the washer/dryer area. In addition, garbage pickup on the Monday after our arrival was an issue. Service only emptied one garbage can - second can was left untouched. Wasn't until two calls to Bob that the rest of the garbage from the week before was picked up on Wednesday. Required me to purchase an additional garbage can just to have a place to put the garbage. Can was left so now you have 3 containers.

Ideal village location and precisely as advertised

  • 4 of 5
Summerside Cottage was exactly as advertised, so met our needs perfectly. We would definitely rent it again.

I rented the cottage for a week's vacation with my husband and six members of my extended family, including my parents. Ages ranged from 18 to 76. The house was perfect for our group of eight. Everyone enjoyed the fact that we could walk to pretty much anything we wanted to do, including catching the free shuttle bus into Acadia and other towns on Mount Desert Island. An absolutely perfect location on a fairly quiet side street, just moments from restaurants, harbor activity and park access.

One of our requirements for a summer house rental was to have air conditioning. The house has two main AC units - one upstairs with the bedrooms and one on the main floor. Both do the job, but are very loud. Thankfully, we only had to run them one night. The rest of the time, we only ran for a couple hours here and there. We'd rather have loud and cool when needed vs. no AC at all, but be prepared that they are not quiet units.

Other reviewers mentioned thin bath towels and a kitchen that lacked basic cookware. It seems that some basic items have been added to the kitchen since that review. However, I suggest you take stock of what they have in the kitchen before planning to cook any meals. We had to buy a couple of disposable pans. The bath towels are definitely not nice hotel quality, but most of them were not bad. I recommend bringing at least one bath towel per person.

If you wish to stay in and have your own lobster feed, the owners of Summerside Cottage have a contact for fresh lobster. This lobsterman and his wife are the nicest people we met while on the island (we met a lot of nice people) - and the lobster was the best too!

Only other suggestion/ issue is that it seems the recycling goes out with the trash pickup. This kills me. I would suggest creating an alternative that makes it easy for guests to recycle.

The house is located right off of Main St in a very quiet neighborhood. Easy access to the many Bar Harbor venues. The food at every restaurant we frequented was good. The home was spacious. I would stay there on my next visit to Bar Harbor.

Summerside Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with the accommodations. The photos and description were accurate. It was a great location. We had three couples in our group and the house had plenty of room. We were within walking distance from everything that Bar Harbor had to offer. We walked to the restaurants, shopping, and the ocean. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to our friends.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the good fortune of spending Easter weekend at Summerside Cottage in Bar Harbor and - like my headline indicates - we loved it.
Clean, comfortable, well-furnished, and welcoming. Staying at this wonderful house is like moving into a new home - one you won't to leave. The in-location was great! It led to walks, which led to talks... which reminded us of vacations long ago. Thanks so much!

MDI Rental

  • 4 of 5
Logan was extremely helpful and prompt when answering any questions I had prior to our stay.

This place was the PERFECT location for us. We were there for the MDI marathon and the cottage was located right around the corner from the start line. It was SO nice to be able to walk to the start. We didn't need a car for anything but Acadia NP (which was only a short drive away). Coming from a place where a car is a necessity, it was wonderful to be able to walk to all the shops, restaurants, churches, etc in the area. It was nice and quiet and the neighbors were friendly.

Cooking meals was a bit of a challenge as there was a lack of kitchen items. The grill was a bit rusty and there was no propane (we didn't want to buy for just a few meals) and since there were no baking pans and only small casserole dishes, we didn't always get to eat at the same time. Having one baking pan or a cookie sheet available for renters would be extremely helpful.

Concerning the bathrooms, all the towels in the cottage were extremely thin. If I were to stay there again, I would likely bring my own towel.

The "negative" points listed certainly weren't deal breakers and we would likely stay there again. The rental met most of our needs and we would recommend the place to others.

Outside of the property itself, we highly recommend restaurants Morning Glory, 2 Cats, Side Street Cafe, and Mache Bistro. The lighthouse boat tour was well worth the money and driving the loop at Acadia National Park is a must. The rest of our time was spent going through the shops which surprisingly took much longer than I ever thought possible. The locals were quite friendly and we had a wonderful stay.
