Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather was wonderful every day and warm. Some days had a nice breeze that was great for hiking.



The absolute best restaurant was the Town Hill Bistro on Rt. 102. Loved the lavender brulee and the scallops and gnocchi. Also, Thurstons for lunch was reasonable and very good. Thirsty Whale - excellent pumpkin ale, lobster rolls and whole belly clams. Jordon Pond - lobster stew and popovers.



Sue and Mike have been excellent hosts and this cottage is heavenly. Love the location, so quiet and peaceful and convenient. We Kayaked Hamilton Pond and walked the serene neighborhood. I will recommend this cottage to my friends and family. It has been a wonderful week!!

Great getaway for two

  • 5 of 5

Kelley's Cottage was a perfect place to stay in Bar Harbor! The cottage is clean, and well stocked with kitchen supplies and linens. The back deck is a great place to have coffee in the morning. Bedroom is comfortable and cozy and we slept like rocks after long days of hiking in Acadia. More importantly, the owner could not have been nicer. We cannot wait to return to Bar Harbor and stay at Kelley's again.

Kelley's Cottage was a great place to stay, very clean and comfortable. It was easy to get to and close to town or Acadia National Park. Owners were close by if we needed anything, but we didn't. Wifi and cable television both worked fine.

Cozy, Friendly, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a cleaner, more cozy, nicer owners! And location was amazing!- not too close to the busy town, yet not too secluded. Would definitely recommend to friends and will stay there again!

Great cottage, great owners.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for our honeymoon, and we loved it. It was cozy and had everything we needed, plus we got to bring our dog!

The owners were wicked nice and helpful, and they gave us great suggestions for places to eat and things to see.

We would absolutely stay there again. Thank you for the hospitality!

From the Parkadia Exxon station at the head of the island follow Rt 3 for 4 1/4 miles to Salisbury Cove. The Old Bar Harbor Road is on the left and has a sign for the Biological Lab with a shark on it. My property is just after the Eden Baptist Church Parish Hall.
