We are located next door to the 'Upper Town Dock' which is public and a 'stop' for the Ferry that makes regular trips to Northeast Harbor, Sutton Island, Big Cranberry Island and Ilseford (Little Cranberry Island) which has a fabulous shore front restaurant call 'The Dock' which is a 'must' during your stay! Don't forget to visit the Museum near the restaurant.

Comfortable

  • 3 of 5

We rented the Topsail cottage for 6 nights. Although it was a larger space than my husband and I needed, we figured we’d use whichever parts of the two floors we felt most comfortable in. The floors are not connected. They have separate entrances and keys. The layout is identical in both. Upon inspection the downstairs was very musty smelling and did not have much natural light. We only used the upstairs. The furnishings were fine and the place was comfortable. I slept very well in the king bed. We did have a view of the water but the cottage is set back from the water behind several other cottages/rentals. We used the kayaks to paddle around the bay. The dock is in good shape. We would probably try someplace else if we came back for a change of scenery, but we have no major complaints.

Perfect for two couples or a family

  • 5 of 5

What a great place Topsail cottage is. We traveled with another couple and each had complete privacy but room to gather too. Very comfortable and what a view. Loved heading down the dock every night to look at the stars. I recommend it whole heartedly.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Owners, Jon and Nancy, were most kind to our family. We found the water-view and the property to quiet and peaceful. One can see that Jon and Nancy take pride in their gardens and property. Top Sail was clean, well equipped and maintained. The property was accurately depicted in the photos and written description. Top Sail comfortably sleeps 8. Having a washer and dryer, two kitchens and two baths was most convenient. As we paddled in their kayaks, we enjoyed looking at the boats in Southwest Harbor. Southwest Harbor has cute shops and several nice eats. Beals: informal, great lobster; The Little Notch: excellent bake goods and sandwiches; and Sips' blueberry pancakes are awesome. The ride was easy to beautiful Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. Sunrise and sunset in Acadia are memorable. Bar Harbor is so much fun with shops, eats and excursions. I highly recommend Top Sail and I would return again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time in Maine and after my vacation it probably won't be the last. From the friendly welcome, organized shuttle schedule laid out to the beautiful view, this place is definitely a hidden gem. Close to the main strip, fresh seafood and the water. I would highly recommend this house for your next vacation!!
