Each year we select a different destination on our bucket list. This year it was Acadia. We have been using VRBO to rent homes at our various destination for at least 15 years now. This year was no different. We diligently looked at each property, compared amenities, price, distance to Acadia and finally decided on Blackwood's Cottage and we were so happy with our selection! The home is cozy, warm and comfortable. It's eclectic decorations and refurbished antiques give it just the right charm. Our family loved happy hour on the large deck and nightly smore's around the bonfire. Otter Creek is a charming little village and is just 3 minutes to one of the entrances to Acadia and less than 10 minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. We honestly loved not being in the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. We went in to town to shop, people watch or enjoy a meal at a restaurant but were so happy to come home to the quiet side to enjoy our relaxing evenings. This home sits right on Rt. 3 which to us was perfect. We could walk right down the road to do the South trail hike to the top of Cadillac mountain and jump right on the road in our car if we wanted to explore the various small harbor towns that make up Mount Desert Island. This home was clean, comfortable and loaded with extras like linens, towels, paper products and detergents that made our stay that much nicer. Thank you Peggy for sharing your home with us.
