Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Despite visiting in between winter blizzards, the cottage driveway was pristinely shoveled when we arrived. The cottage itself is absolutely fantastic in every way. High-quality amenities and great charm! The fenced in yard was convenient for letting our dogs out. The kitchen had everything we needed, including basic cooking ingredients that are otherwise inconvenient to travel with. We had no idea until we arrived how close to the shore the cottage is. Great, accommodating service as well. We will be back for sure!

We had the perfect long weekend here! The neighborhood is very quiet and close to everything. This pet-friendly cottage was super clean and had everything we could have possibly needed... our dog had a blast exploring the park with us! Definitely want to come back!

Quaint Inviting Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage that is warm and comfortable. Only a few steps from the bay. Everyday we strolled down to enjoy the wonderful view. Fortunately the weather was good so we were able to relax on the back deck which is quiet with surrounding pine trees. If we are ever up in Bar Harbor again I would hope this lovely home would be available to us.

Exceeded expectation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at this sweet cottage while exploring one of our favorite places, MDI. I was in love with this home through the photographs and we were certainly not disappointed. Very comfortable, clean and architecturally fun, the cottage was equipped with everything we could have wanted. The fenced back yard for our 7 month old pup was also a great plus for us. Thank you so much for sharing this enchanting home away from home. We highly recommend this property and hope to revisit you in other seasons.
