Owner's Response: We really enjoy the rental business and make every effort to help our guests vacation be as enjoyable as possible. We built our one bedroom cottage twenty one years ago and this unit in 2000. We have met some wonderful people during that time who have come back again and again and become our friends. One of those families now lives next door. This is a beautiful island that we are happy to share.

Perfect Place for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

The Kelley's Guest House had the perfect amount of space for our family. The unit was laid out perfectly for us to thoroughly enjoy our time and not get into each other's way. The decorations and furniture made you feel at home. The outfitting of the unit was great for us and our small dog. It was great to be able to take our dog and by the middle of the week, she was heading out to potty without us feeling apprehensive. There is a perfect little yard for them to run and take care of business. We loved that the house is NOT right in town! Town is SO busy.

Sue & Mike gave us great suggestions for restaurants and activities in the area and they are VERY laid back. It was nice to have access to the laundry!

While we were there, we enjoyed hiking, the beautiful sites, restaurants, ocean kayaking, shopping, etc. Our kids are 20 & 17 and they both said it was one of their favorite vacations.

Thanks again for making our stay so enjoyable!

Well Kept and Clean

  • 5 of 5

I have vacationed in MDI for over 15 years and have rented a variety of vacation homes. This year I decided to bring my dog along and was looking for a pet friendly rental. Kelley's Private Guest house in Salisbury Cove was perfect. It was well kept and clean, and had ample yard area for me to play fetch with him. It is in close proximity to Route 3, so walking to catch the Island Explorer bus was easy. It's also just a short drive from Acadia's Visitor Center. I highly recommend this rental house, and look forward to staying there again some time in the future.

Excellent Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kelley's Private Guest House for our honeymoon on Mount Desert Island. It was a little more secluded from the busyness of Bar Harbor, which is exactly what we wanted. It was clean and hospitable when we arrived, with fresh cut flowers on the table! The house is open and airy with lots of light. The rooms are spacious. We did have one problem with the fans not working, but since the hosts had asked us to let them know of things like this, we did, and we had a new fan waiting for us on the deck by that afternoon!

The drive to Bar Harbor is short--between 5-10 minutes, and Acadia is even closer. We stored our bikes in the garage, and we were able to use the washer/dryer in the back of the garage as well. We happened to run into Sue one morning late in our stay--but that was all we saw of the owners, as they wanted to give us privacy.

It was an excellent location, and we loved Acadia and the island so much, we want to come back. If we do, we have talked about trying to stay here. It's a great place.

One note not related to the cottage itself: there is a Hannaford grocery store in Bar Harbor, and an IGA in the opposite direction. Go to Hannaford; it's so much better.

Exactly what I wanted

  • 5 of 5

Kelley's cottage is a cozy and comfortable apartment that is well set up and very easy space to stay in. It was very clean and bright, nicely decorated and airy -- even nicer than I expected from the pictures. I was there with my dog, but it would also be fine for two or three adults or a couple with a child. For me, the location worked very well because I was spending part of my time on the west side of the island and some on the Schoodic Penninsula. And it was still only a few minutes to the Hull's Cove entrance and to Bar Harbor. My Great Dane and I really enjoyed our week and would certainly stay there again.

Owner's Response: After for seasons off of the weekly vacation market we made a great effort this year to paint and refurnish this unit. I'm glad that our efforts are appreciated.
