Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5
I've visited Bar harbor every year for the better part of a decade. The trips are always memorable because of the seascape and the wonderful people who live and travel here. But our trip this Summer was extra special because of your cottage. My family and I found it so comfortable and clean. Its decor is charming. The bedrooms were airy. After a day of hiking, or simply strolling through the village, it was so nice to come home to Summerside Cottage. We hope to visit Bar Harbor and your lovely cottage again next year, if not sooner.

Picture postcard perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this vacation home and Bar Harbor was perfect!
My wife and I and another couple, along with our children, vacationed here. The house was just as described - wonderful. Can't wait to visit again.
The house was spotless and roomy - even with 9 of us staying there.

"I had the time of my life..."

"I had the time of my life..."
  • 5 of 5
That song from Dirty Dancing - I had the time of my life - resonates through my head and heart whenever I think of our visit to Bar Harbor and Summerside Cottage. My family and I truly had the time of our lives. The house was perfect. So spacious, so clean, so tastefully decorated. We had so many places in the house to have family time together. The enclosed front porch, the outside front porch (where my husband and I had coffee every morning), and the back deck - where we barbequed some wonderful meals. The house was right in town. I have stayed in Bar Harbor before. It's important to find one in the village not the town. Because having a house in "the town" could mean you're still miles from everything. Summerside was in walking distance to everything we wanted to do in Bar Harbor. The house was as charming as the village itself. Thank you!

Acceptable

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.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review Summerside Cottage.
I believe, however, this is more of a critique of Bar Harbor's main private garbage contractor than the property itself. After speaking with the guest, I understand the garbage man only picked up one container on Monday instead of two. The guest called our property manager, who called the garbage contractor, who picked-up the trash the next day. Problem solved.
As for the rain. I'd like to think we can control the weather but, alas, we cannot :) Extremely heavy rains in this waterfront community will, from time to time, raise the water table and cause basements to be wet virtually throughout the entire village. Again, after speaking with he guest, he told me the issue was short lived, and any musty smell went away as soon as the windows were opened.
There's an expression Mainers jokingly use... "Don't like the weather, wait a minute!" Yes, it's that changeable.
Next year, by the way, a new laundry center is being installed on the first floor.

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.

Girls trip

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.
