Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first time just a few weeks ago. We loved it. The cottage is clean and very well-equipped. There are a ton of windows so you can see the lake at all times. It's about a 20 to 30 minute drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. We spent most of our mornings there and then relaxed back at the cottage in the afternoons. There are also a lot of shops and restaurants in Ellsworth, which is nice if you don't want to venture far. We didn't get wifi at the cottage, but went to the public library down the street and used theirs.

This is our third year in a row that we have stayed at this cottage. It is quiet, right on the lake, and close to everything. The owners are also great to work with. We hope to go back next year! I miss it already.

Hidden Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Talley Cottage for our 20 year anniversary. We wanted a cozy place near to Acadia but away from the crowds. Talley Cottage was so perfect and completely private! It is so much more beautiful than even the photos can capture. We enjoyed grilling clams, canoeing the lake in the evenings, or bringing home lobsters and taking in a stunning view of the sunset overlooking the lake by the campfire after a day of hiking and biking in Acadia! Thank you for making our first trip to Maine so special and memorable!

Delightful getaway in a private and scenic setting

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was charming and looked exactly as pictured. It was fully equipped with kitchen and bath amenities clean and well maintained. We did a lot of exploring of the Acadia Park, Bar Harbor, and Bangor. Ellsworth had a lot to offer.Restaurants were plentiful and varied. The owners offered boating privileges and 'spotty' Wi-Fi . The lake, however, was being drained and we would have had to portage several hundred feet to appropriate water levels. We read in the Welcome portfolio on the dining room table that the owners decided to eliminate Wi-Fi. Had we been able to boat on the lake this stay would have been a 5. Emily, the owner was immediately available when we had questions.

Little extras like bird feeding stations were enjoyable. The binoculars and bird books the owners provided were a nice touch. . We sought WI-FI at a local library. We'd recommend this unit under conditions that would permit use of

the lake and sitting on that little porch to watch wild life. We chose September for cooler weather, but summer may be a better thought. New rentals may want to check.

Pictures do not capture the charm!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat from the world, this is the cottage for you. Emily and Leroy have thought of everything! The cottage and grounds are clean, well appointed and complete with many warm touches of a home. You can spend the day hiking, biking, exploring Acadia and Down East Maine - it is just 18 miles to Bar Harbor and the park . . . or you can just stay at the cottage relaxing in one of the hammocks, and taking a kayak or canoe out on the lake. Make your day complete with a lakeside fire in the pit!

Thanks Emily and Leroy - we will carry our memories of our trip to Talley Cottage with us for years to come.
