Rocko's Cottage is located on a side street in the downtown area of the beautiful island town of Bar Harbor. We are pet friendly for your well mannered four legged friends. Rocko is actually our 7 lb Dorkie. (Dachshund/Yorkie)
You will be within walking distance of over 25 restaurants ranging from fine dining to family fare. Bicycle rentals, kayaking trips, and unique shops galore are all just minutes of your front door and yes we can tell you which of these places welcome pets. Walk the shore path or across a natural sand bar (actually a glacial deposit) to visit beautiful Bar Island. Never have to worry about parking your car or enjoying a cocktail and then driving.
Rocko's Cottage was built in 2005 and is tastefully and comfortably furnished. You will find everything that you need to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessities of life, and the linens are all in good condition. The open floor plan actually makes our cottage appear much larger inside. It must be noted that the bathroom does not have a tub but does have a nice 4 ft. shower and for your convenience there is a stackable washer and dryer. This is a great house and location for people that travel with pets or just one or two couples or a small family that want to stay in the heart of town. Once you visit us you will be sure to return again and again.
We, the owners, live and work locally and we are always only a phone call away if there is a problem. Welcome to our home and enjoy your stay....

We stayed at Rocko’s Cottage last week on our Honeymoon. It was so cute and had a fantastic location. The Cottage was very clean and comfortable. It had everything that we needed and Lisa let us know that she was close by if we needed anything. It was in walking distance to everything in town and only a short ride to Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain. We will definitely be back to rent this place again. We loved everything about it.

You guys were great. Hope to see you again. Thanks for staying with us. Lisa
Clean, comfortable and convenient
The cottage was everything we had hoped for. About 200 yards off Main Street but also very quiet. Walking distance to everything. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Thank you Lisa and Rick.
Ideally located from downtown and approximately 20 minute drive to Acadia National Park
My husband and I and my husband's brother and wife had the pleasure of staying here from Aug. 5-12th. Rocko's cottage was very comfortable and clean. We could walk downtown quite easily and drive to Acadia National Park in no time at all. Such a lovely area! Do take the shore-path walk. That's how I started my day. We would not hesitate in booking this cottage again.
Thank you for your great review and we hope to see you again.
Property was the perfect size for 4 people, plenty of space, fully stocked kitchen and bath. Great location, walking distance to down town Bar Harbor.
Thank you . Hope to see you again.
Fantastic location. A great vacation!
The location is great! It's close to downtown and a short drive to Acadia. Such a cute cottage- clean and quiet.
The owner, Lisa is great and makes sure you are comfortable. We highly recommend this cottage!
Thank you so much for your great review. We hope you get to come back and stay with us again.
Great little house. Perfect location.
Beautiful home, really loved how it was decorated. It has two bedrooms (one with a king size bed), living room, kitchen, bathroom with washer & dryer, dishwasher and outside grill and off street parking. It's location is perfect. Main Street and the Harbor are well within walking distance. The owners Lisa and Rick were excellent hosts. We highly recommend renting this beautiful home from them. You won't be disappointed.
Thank you so much for the great review. You were wonderful guests and we hope you come back and visit again.
We are located in the heart of downtown just minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park, free island shuttle bus, numerous boat tours and whale watching.
