My family - two adults, three teens, and our black lab dog - enjoyed our stay at Newman Cottage at the end of June 2016.
Newman cottage has a relaxed, happy vibe. The cottage was very clean upon arrival. There was plenty of room, the beds were comfortable, and the home is within easy striking distance of any Acadia/Mount Desert destination. We made several trips to the east side of the island and found the drive to be quick and easy. The wifi worked consistently well and kept us connected during our down time. The shower worked very well. The outdoor gas grill was adequate and my family enjoyed using the chimenea for smores at night. There is an IGA within a couple of miles for grocery shopping as well as a number of good restaurants. The owners were very friendly and responsive to our questions. We bought fresh lobsters and fresh eggs from them. They also returned our security deposit in a timely fashion.
In summary, we had a fantastic stay at Newman Cottage as a base for our exploration/vacation on Mt. Desert Island. We would stay there again and recommend it to our friends.
