What a great little cottage in a quiet spot. We had a wonderful week. What a great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Joan and Allen were wonderful hosts. We had a lovely time. Seal Harbor is great; very quiet and relaxing. We explored parts of the island that we never have before because we were on the southside.

Great cottage and location!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is kept up nicely and has a wonderful location. It is very convenient to Acadia and the carriage roads. The bus stop is a short easy walk and runs frequently. The owners were extremely knowledgeable about the island and all that it has to offer. I would definitely recommend this rental!

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous week on Mt. Desert Island, and this cottage was perfect for us in so many ways: great location, clean and well-kept. The garden was in full bloom when we arrived -- the fragrance of the lilac tree blooming next to the driveway greeted us every time we returned to the cottage. Joan and Allen were considerate and thoughtful hosts. Aside from the location of the property, the greatest thing about it was Joan's binder, full of insider information that only a local would know about the best places to hike, eat, and wander through beautiful Acadia. The only downside to this property was the very steep and shallow stairs leading up to the 2nd floor where the bedrooms are located. It was difficult for an adult to negotiate, and required turning slightly sideways to ensure solid foot placement.

Perfect for a Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Cottage on Jordan Pond was a wonderful experience. The location was actually the best part of this cottage as it was just minutes from Acadia National Park and 15 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor.

The cottage itself was perfect for two people. The kitchen, living room and bedrooms made you feel like you were in a cabin out in the woods. The cottage also had a few extras like Wi-Fi, washer and dryer as well as other kitchen amenities. The property was very clean and well maintained.

Alan and Joan were fantastic hostesses. They gave us great recommendations as well as help us feel at home. We absolutely loved the muffins that were waiting for us when we arrived. We would stay again given the opportunity.

Seal Harbor Cottage

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was cozy and convenient (walking distance to a beach and the carriage roads; 15 minutes to Acadia and the shops and restaurants of Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor), but not quiet or at all private. The houses are very close together in this area, and the neighbors made noise into the night, making sleeping difficult at times The stairs leading to upstairs bedrooms are very small and steep. The cottage was also not particularly clean - had to wash slipcover for the couch due to dog hair. The first sweep of the floors also turned up a lot of dog hair. On the plus side (besides the accessibility), the owners are very friendly (there were fresh muffins on the kitchen table when we arrived) and the flowers and patio area are lovely.

Great Week in Acadia

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to settle down and really get to know the island, this cottage is perfect. Its location is close to Jordan Pond, not a bad drive to Bar Harbor (12 - 15 minutes?) and close enough to Northeast Harbor to run out for groceries or breakfast if you want. We were particularly grateful to find a pet friendly rental as Acadia is one of the few parks that allows dogs on the trails. Most days we didn't even get in the car to go hiking - you can reach the carriage trails by walking up the road about a half mile.

Joan and Allan are friendly and accommodating; they live next door so they could answer questions if necessary, but there is plenty of privacy between the two houses. They also work hard to make the cottage feel like home - there are guidebooks, puzzles, books, and even homemade muffins!

The only thing I would warn about is the relatively steep staircase up to the bedrooms - if you have young kids you will want to bring a gate.

This cottage really is as quaint and welcoming as it looks. We will definitely be returning in the years to come.
