As Maine registered Guides we love, play and work Acadia. We know this island and surrounding islands thru our extensive research and work here locally. We would not live anywhere else but here...

Chose this property because we are also sea kayak guides -registered nationally and in the state of Maine. We use to depart right off our steps. We can still depart right off our floater..We love the ocean and the harbor- for the lobstermen

You can see the lobster men coming and going each day. You can also see world class yachts pull into this harbor. Love the convenience of this village, walk to the library , the post office, the restaurant, the hiking trails, the art studios.

Very convenient and not touristy ( you will not find a t-shirt shop here) ..so we enjoy the quiet nights and the relaxing views of Cadiallac Mountain from the bedrooms and the decks. We also enjoy the firepit , fenced in yard for kids or dogs..and more. This place really has high speed and your cell phone works here from this home. Their is a printer and an easel for everyone to use also. The fireplace is great at night to relax by and we have a ton of diverse books to read if you desire...Only home on the island that takes dogs and has a fence. call for quantity of dogs.

the location was perfect: private but not far from the park or bar harbor. we couldnt have been happier with the house. we spent every evening cooking fresh seafood before relaxing on the deck to watch the harbor. a little big for just the two of us, but we will definitely return soon with relatives and/or friends. wont hesitate to rent this cottage again and are making plans for our return!

Hope you had the oppurtunity to meet the local lobsterman, with the fresh catch.

Great home...great yard and more...The place was more than what the owner even describes. we go to acadia and bar harbor every year, we just found our new destination..no other home has been as clean or the owners have not supplied as much as this owner does.. You can tell they take pride in the home and make it very comfortable for the customers...we will be back, thank goodness we found you..if anyone wants to give up weeks in july of 2014, book us in those as well. Lots of antiques, books and great decor..the beds were fabulous...see you next year..

The Best of Acadia and Bar Harbor

Everything you could hope for, and more. Fantastic place. We have stayed in this area alot and this is the best home on the island. So if coming to Bar harbor or acadia and you have a pup - this is the only place I would stay. Or even without a dog, this place is great, close, to everything. Out of the tourists.
Kitchen had everything we needed, plus more and so did the baths. Books everywhere for those rainy days - not many thank goodness. The art easel was nice to practice again. The canoe was fun to go out in and around the harbor...Best place perhaps in Maine on the coast. We will be back

Perfect Retreat

This felt just like home! Beautiful yard with many flowers and blueberries! The dog loved the fenced area. And it was well cared for. Gardners came every other day to water and trim. The house was just as the pictures depicted. Very comfortable beds and linens! The kitchen was well appointed and the washer and dryer came in handy with two little boys. We ate in a couple of nights and the rest of the time we at lobster, yummm. Thurston's Lobster Pound was within walking distance. We loved Acadia National Park and the restaurant at Jordan Pond for lunches. It was so divine smelling the tides, listening to the lobstermen as they chugged out at 4 am and back in the afternoon with fresh lobster. It was peaceful. It was rejuvinating. It was perfect! Hope to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us, We would love to have you back! That home is special, my husband and I had our first date across Bass Harbor there, over 15 years ago now. We did not even realize it until we bought the place, stood on the deck and said isn't that our restaurant?
So we are especially glad to hear you had such memorable moments as we did and still do.. Acadia and the town of Bernard is very beautiful, as well as Bar Harbor..
Thanks again!

Thank you for the view from the deck and the peacful sounds around the home. Our two Brittany Spaniels loved running from the front to the back. We have hiked everyday. There are so many places to go & so many different hikes from easy to difficult, obviously the dogs have slept well at night! We also climbed the Beech Mt. -beautiful sights from the top.

Better than Bar Harbor

  • Submitted: Apr 9, 2010
  • Stayed: Sep 2009
Thank you so much for providing the perfect cottage for a Maine getaway.The amazing shops and shopping in Bar Harbor is wonderful, but do not want all that touristy stuff every day, however! What a beautiful part of the island, and America this home is located in, the best part on the island we understand now why everyone else says so...This home however beats all of them and we were dazzled by the gardens the views and all the home has to offer ...even our dog Maggie doesn't want to leave the great yard, Larger than ours back home....thanks again, see you again!
