Perfect location for large families
We rented both the Cove Cottage and Cove House for a great week exploring Acadia. We planned mostly hikes with the kids and had perfect weather. We ate all together at the Cove House and the kitchen had everything we needed for meal planning. We had one dinner out at Upper Deck which could accommodate a large party easily. We explored the beach and went shell hunting. We even spotted a Bald Eagle as we explored the marsh area. Richard and MaryAnn were wonderful hosts and able to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this location and hope to return soon. Thanks for making some great memories for all the the cousins!
Wonderful, private, property on the "quiet side" of the island.
Our family had 9 people in the house and also had 6 in the cottage next door. We all met in the house and while it was cozy we didn't feel cramped. Plenty of room to spread out when we wanted to. 4 of the 5 bedrooms have nice views. The kitchen worked well for multiple cooks. Very peaceful setting away from the traffic and congestion of Bar Harbor but still within a reasonable drive. But there is plenty to do on this side of the island, some beautiful hikes (loved Beech Mountain), restaurants, museums. There is also a decent grocery store only 15 minutes away in Southwest Harbor. The owners were very responsive & helpful. We really enjoyed eating breakfast on the sheltered patio, a great way to start the day. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Great stay in Southwest Harbor!
Our family loved the stay. The home is lovely and well appointed. The view of the cove in the morning and evening was lovely. We especially enjoyed having our morning coffee on the patio that overlooked the cove. Very quiet and peaceful area! We would definitely stay in this home again.
The house was clean, and well stocked. You will need to bring more paper products and trash bags, but cleaning products are available. Being on the rocky beach was so much fun for the kids, they spent a lot of time looking for crabs. Bring bug spray! Hosts are very nice, and live next door. They leave you in peace, but are there should you have any questions or need recommendations.
This house is wonderful! The kitchen is a dream, beds are comfortable, home is spacious. Mary Ann & Richard were extremely responsive to any request or need. Even though it's on the other side of MDI from Bar Harbour, it is an escape from the crowds. The village of Southwest Harbour is minutes away. Wendell Gilley museum is a must!! Island Cruises with Eric Strauss was the best, most educational cruise we've ever enjoyed! Thurston's Lobster Pound is great. Don't miss staying st this lovely home & enjoying Maine!!
Perfect Vacation Spot
A perfect vacation home for 3 generations from ages 2 1/2 to 82 1/2. Cove House is beautifully situated in a quiet and serene setting. It is conveniently located for hiking. swimming, boating and eating all close to Acadia National Park. The home, true to its photos, is very well maintained, quite comfortable, and affords beautiful views of the ocean from many of its rooms.
The owners, Mary Ann and Richard, were very friendly and helpful with everything and anything one could need or want from recommendations where to go to providing a gas powered lobster pot. It was greatly appreciated that there was always a prompt response to any inquiry. The only drawback was the healthy mosquitoes, but we were forewarned, so we came prepared.
All of us would be delighted to return someday.
