Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent a glorious week at this magical cottage. Looking out the windows and seeing trees and more trees has an amazing affect on one's soul. The calm and relaxing atmosphere is just what the doctor ordered. This place is great! Clean, well equipped and so easy to get comfortable in. Nancy is great. This is a great location, so close to everything. We will most certainly come back here! We saw deer several times and enjoyed the side yard with the chimenea--a great place to unwind after a day of hiking. Thanks! We will be back!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very private & peaceful which is want we wanted. The host & hostess, Bo & Nancy were very friendly & helpful. Nature was everywhere, we even had a family of deer thru the yard everyday(including a spotted baby). This was fun! We had a fire in the fire pit every night & cooked on the gas grill a lot of nights! We went to Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park & the scenery was awesome.The park was only a few minutes from the cottage.

Lovely property, private, set back in the woods. Very quiet & cool!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at this modest, well-equipped cabin! It was not fancy, but definitely more than met our needs. It was perfect for our family (2 adults & 2 elementary school age kids)! The cabin was stocked with some basics (soap, laundry detergent, trash bags, coffee & filters). The laundry room was a huge plus, & appeared to be newly renovated. Outdoor fire pit was brand new & we had fires almost every night!

The owners live up the road & are the nicest people! They were so helpful with suggestions, & very knowledgeable about the history of the area.

We spent most of our time exploring Acadia & swimming at Echo Lake. We also really enjoyed Southwest & Northeast Harbors- much more laid back than Bar Harbor.

Perfect for stay away from crowds

  • 4 of 5

The little cabin is perfect for a stay away from bar harbor and away from the main road, which is ideal for families. House has nothing fancy but everything worked and owners are very nice. Enjoyed time. Thanks.

Perfect for young families

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is just the right size for families with small children. Our kids are 4, 6 and 8 and we had plenty of room. The cabin is a bit rustic, and for us that made for a much more relaxing time at the property. There is also a long driveway for bike riding and the house is set far back from neighbors so it is very private.

Outstanding Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We love staying here! This was our third year in a row and it is so cozy and has everything you need! Convenient to Bar Harbor, SW Harbor but quiet enough to relax! We hope to come back again in the near future!

The hiking is awesome although we were there during the govt shutdown but could still hike where we wanted for the most part. Great places to eat in Bar Harbor and the leaves were beautiful! Summer is great up there but fall is gorgeous! Nancy and Mandy are awesome!
