This property was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped with all the cooking utensils we needed. The location was ideal for exploring surrounding areas, such as Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. We also enjoyed exploring the Southwest Harbor area where the cottage is located. At night after our days of exploration, we enjoyed playing games while the pellet stove made it warm and cozy. Although we did not meet the owners, they were very responsive to e-mails. I would definitely recommend this property for a vacation location. We enjoyed it very much.
We had a lovely visit to Acadia National Park and very much enjoyed our stay at Newman Cottage. After all the hiking and exploring around the park it was great to have all the comforts at home at the cottage to come back to. Its 3 bedrooms and spacious living areas were perfect for our family of 8! One of the highlights of our stay at Newman Cottage was the star gazing in the back yard. It was incredible! We also loved having a spacious back yard to let the kids run around in. And we enjoyed the short walk to the beach from the cottage. We are grateful for the hospitality of the people of Newman Cottage and had a delightful stay!! We will definitely be booking another vacation here in the future! The kids can't wait to visit again!
Our family (Mother, Father, Son, Daughter and her husband) had a great stay in this house. It was not a huge house but we never felt crowded. We even had dogs in the house! The home was well kept, clean and a close walk to the water. It was quieter than Bar Harbor yet not so far away that we didn't travel there every day to see the park and hike and bike the trails. The owners were helpful and friendly and this house allowed my husband and I to feel relaxed and refreshed away from the craziness of the world. We would definitely stay here again the next time we come to Acadia.
Everybody had something to do there. I could not imagine better place to stay. We had a great time. Thank you....
Booked this last minute after looking at motel cottages for a family of six. The house is clean, comfortable, very farmhouse feeling. We loved it. We picked it for access to the sights of acadia and the budget. Excellent choice. Loved the private feel of the right-of-way to the rocky beach and.....lobsters delivered by the owner on request-just pulled out of his lobster traps. Also loved the farm fresh egg delivery. The hostess/owner made every effort to include everything you could need in the house without having to ask. Highly recommend. Oh yeah, you can flag down the free island explorer from outside the house. No need to drive and find parking.
