beautiful cozy cottage, perfect location
My husband, our doggie and I stayed in this beautiful little cottage for almost a week -- we've become huge fans of rental-by-owner venues when traveling with our dog, and this rates as one of the best appointed we have stayed in to date. The kitchen is fully equipped with very nice cookware, dish soap, dish towels and all the things that you need but don't really want to haul all the way from home. The bath and bed linens are very high quality - no poly blend here :) And the shower is amazing. The property is very well cared for in and out, and the pictures truly don't relay the full extent of this property's charm.
We used this as a home base to explore the rest of Mt Desert Island and Acadia - it was about a 20 minute drive into the heart of Acadia, although you could access less traveled parts of the park in about 7 minutes. Within *easy* (1-2 blocks) walking distance: tasty restaurants, grocery & wine stores, bakery, and an incredibly helpful bike store. Shade-tree lined neighborhood streets (with sidewalks!) surround the property, making early morning walks a pleasure.
The completely fenced in back patio area was one of our favorite things about the property - it has a charming flagstone path from the side of the house around back where it enlarges into a patio. Beautiful trees shade the area - we enjoyed an amazing dinner where we grilled local fish on the outdoor gas grill, then sat outside at the table, enjoying the evening. Our dog was a huge fan, too - we kept the side door open so that he could go in and out while we were there. He loved sleeping in the sunshine on the flagstone patio.
Only two things that we didn't anticipate - the internet server was having problems while we were there, but the owners let us know about it up front, and were looking into having it repaired. And, our doggie was very unsure about the open spiral staircase (just fyi for other pet travelers).
The owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and relay information about high-yield activities and restaurants in the area. We would love to come back again, and highly recommend this property!
