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.

Great owner, great cottage, and great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and the perfect size for two people. Located about 3 miles from the entrance to Acadia, it was the perfect starting point for our adventures. It also kept us out of the "bustle" of downtown Bar Harbor. Sue and Mike were friendly and gracious and made sure we had everything we needed. The use of the washer and dryer was greatly appreciated as well!

Some tips for the area--buy your groceries at either the Hannaford's or Shaw's in Ellsworth before you arrive at the cabin. Bigger selection, better prices, and MORE PARKING than at the grocery store in Bar Harbor. Much less stress!

Also, don't miss taking a trip to Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor. Great shops and departure points for interesting cruises and kayaking trips. ( Bass Harbor Cruises and Maine State Kayak) The cottage was well situated to make these excursions very easy.

Quiet place, away from the crowds

  • 4 of 5

My husband, Ric , my dog Kramer and I had

a wonderful week staying at Kelley's quiet.

The cottage was nicely decorated, very clean

and well supplied with everything one need

for a stay away from home.

Sue and Mike were great hosts. They were

very friendly and provided us with names of

places to eat, places to shop.

Thanks to you both.

Kelley's Cottage

  • 4 of 5

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!
