Perfect little get away
This was a great spot for us. Clean, well equipped and quiet. We love the quiet side of Mt. Desert and this was perfect for what we were looking for. Would love to stay here again.
quiet, shady, very adequate
we stayed at the cottage early Sept. 2017. nice location on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island. we have been to Acadia many times over the last 28 years, often camping, but like the convenience of a cottage. nights were cool while we were there, but the cottage warmed up quickly with the wood stove. wifi worked well. kitchen adequate; very small kitchen table. bring your own condiments. lots of outside space with tables and chairs. laundry was very nice. bedrooms very nice. would come here again.
Cozy cabin in the woods
Great location for getting away in Bar Harbor. The cottage was at the end of a very quiet street. From there we were a short drive to amazing hiking, swimming and lobster dinners. Thanks for the great recommendations! They also provided us with plenty of wood for the fire pit to end the night.
We had a great family experience, the owners were very helpful and friendly. We can't wait to return.
Perfect Hideaway with Amenities; A little bit Dusty but Charming.
Great gathering spot for family or community oriented small group. All the amenities you could hope for while still living the cabin life off the beaten path are right here: Gather round the fire nightly, or lounge on the covered and screened-in porches in the rain; having a washer and dryer is a big plus. Wifi too, should you need it. The place could use a once over dusting and cobwebb removal plus instructions on what to do with weekly garbage would be helpful. The fan buzzes and the fridge growls. The place definitely has its own personailty. Is it haunted? Nah! These minor things weren't a problem as we had a near perfect getaway here in an ideal spot near Bar Harbor and Acadia. We would do it all again!
