Guestbook comments from the owner

It had all the amenities we needed and we were very happy! We also really loved how we could continue on Long Pond Road to get to hiking trails and swimming holes.

Wonderful home! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy's home was just beautiful - as described. The area was tranquil and relaxing, yet minutes away from every Acadia has to offer. The home was spacious, clean and welcoming. I would highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to return. A memorable vacation!!

Blueberry Ln Cottage is calling so be on your way!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in many vacation rentals throughout the USA, and Blueberry Ln Cottage in Southwest Harbor did not disappoint. Our group of three sixty-something brothers and their gals like it so much that I am writing this review as I sit here on the morning of our last full day here at the cottage. Yes, I am now looking out at the blueberry meadow with its burst of vibrant fall colors and the six whitetail deer less than 15 yards away. Though this home was built in 2009, it still looks like new. Immaculate, beautiful yet simple decor, quiet, close to Southwest Harbor, and just minutes away from the sea. We are enjoying our stay so much that we have opted to dine here each evening, each of our three families taking turns to cook one night. Grilling on the deck, baking and broiling in the well-appointed kitchen, enjoying our time together in this perfect setting was a delight! Hiking Acadia National Park's trails and carriage roads, and taking in all the beauty at Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, Seawall, and Jordan Pond occupied our days. Some days started early, too. We recommend viewing sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain. Bar Harbor, much busier and crowded than our quiet side of the island, is worth a visit. Such an eclectic mix of shopping and food. Thank you, Kathy, for your excellent customer service. So, traveler, what are you waiting for? Book this home now.

Great cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect home base for our trip to Acadia! The area is beautiful and close to some trails and the park. We loved the field in the back of the house and watching the wildlife. The house is spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need for your stay. The owner was great about communication and a pleasure to rent from. If we return to Acadia we'd definitely stay here again!

Well done!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, immaculately clean house. A quiet setting to relax and enjoy just "being". And a big plus that it was away from the craziness and congestion of Bar Harbor. There is not one thing that we wanted for - well equipped kitchen, great laundry and living space was very open and inviting. We enjoyed our stay....thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. Should our travels bring us or our friends that way again we will be back.

Lovely cottage but issues with return of deposit

  • 2 of 5

The cottage is in a lovely peaceful location and is comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our stay there and everything had gone very smoothly until the owner withheld a significant portion of our deposit for 'excess cleaning'. After a long and frustrating exchange via email i received a portion of the deposit back. I would definitely return to Acadia but not to this property. This is unfortunate as apart from that we had a very enjoyable trip.

Smooth process and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on blueberry lane. Each day we were greeted with wonderful wild life. The view out the windows of the meadow was beautiful. It was a peaceful location. Close to all the Bar Harbor and national park sites. The home was very clean and cozy. Working with the owner Katherine was a breeze. I even got my deposit back really quickly. We went whale watching out of Bar Harbor. We did all the park sites . And we ate lots of lobster. We made a nice blueberry pancake breakfast right on blueberry lane. It was a fantastic time. We loved Bar Ha Ba and the lobsta!!!! Would love to return oneday soon. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
