Comfy on the quiet side of MDI
Joan's little cottage was perfect for our family of 4 to spend a few nights near Acadia NP. It was very clean and the beds were comfy; the kitchen was very well stocked (she even provided coffee for us!), and there were even laundry supplies on hand. From the cottage we could look out over the harbor, walk down to the waterfront restaurant the Seafood Ketch, walk to the ferry station where we took a nice ferry ride over to Frenchboro and back just to get on the water and see the scenery, and we were a short drive from some nice park trails. We also could catch the public bus into the park and Bar Harbor at the ferry station, but we found that driving to the MDI High School and catching the shuttle into Bar Harbor from there was more time efficient. This is a great option to avoid having to drive and park in Bar Harbor, which was very crowded for 4th of July week. We LOVED Acadia, MDI, and this quaint, cozy little cottage. We would love to return for another visit and would stay here again without hesitation!
LORI AND FAMILY A VERY NICE COUPLE FROM KY AND KIDS WHEN THEY LEFT THEY LOOKED VERY HAPPY AND TOLD ME THE PLACES THEY WENT,CLEANED UP VERY WELL HOPE THEY CAN COME BACK. JOAN
Perfect vacation trip
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful well maintained house. Very comfortable, cozy and convenient. Will definitely be back again and also recommend to our friends.
Very nice and quiet
We enjoyed staying at Joan’s cottage mid June. Located in a very quiet location so a bit of a drive to Acadia NP but close to Thurston’s lobster pound for an easy dinner. Kitchen was well equipped with everything to make simple meals. The two bedrooms are upstairs, small but comfortable for our family of 4. Thanks Joan for the fan supplied as the weather was warming up! The downstairs bathroom is clean and updated. All in all a great base to explore Mt Desert island.
Great little house in Bass Harbor
We enjoyed our time in Bass Harbor. We were out most of the day. The house is very convenient to some great hikes on the "quiet side" and it was not too far to head over the to the main entrance of Acadia and Bar Harbor. The house was as described. We enjoyed coming back after a long day and cooking some lobsters in a pot and sitting on the front deck looking at the harbor.
Joan was a great hostess her place was lovely very clean and comfortable the setting was great the
Would stay again the stars at night amazing
DALE AND DAUGHTER GREAT GUESTS NO MESS I DO HOPE THEY CAN COME BACK. JOAN
We had a great stay at Joan's property! It's a cozy little place with all the amenities to meet our needs. We enjoyed staying away from the hustle and bustle of busy Bar Harbor. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset over the harbor. Seafood Ketch restaurant is a short walk from the property and has delicious food!
