Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first visit to Maine, and it was splendid!! Within two hours of arriving at the cottage my boyfriend insisted we come back next year. Thank you so much for letting us stay at Moss Ledge. It was truly the perfect getaway.

Cute and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at Moss ledge. The cottage is cute, airy and charming, had everything needed to feel right at home. Location is quiet, but so convenient to everything on the island. Walks along the beautiful rocky beach on Frenchmans Bay were great. Be sure to check out "The Ovens" at low tide. Deb was very responsive by email. Highly recommended!

Cute and charming

  • 4 of 5

Cute place close to Frenchman's Bay, and easy access to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We frequently walked down the road to see the water, and went to either Bar Harbor or Acadia every single day. Deb was quick to respond to emails and well organized. We highly recommend this place.

We Loved Moss Ledge!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Moss Ledge this past week for a hiking/get-away vacation. From the start, Deb was extremely helpful in answering questions. The cottage was EXTREMELY clean and well equipped with everything we needed for a weeks stay. The location was fantastic as it was very close to Acadia where we hiked everyday and also very close to Bar Harbor. The short walk to the bottom of the street brought you to a beautiful view of Frenchman's Bay. One thing we noticed was how quiet the area was. Although it was on a street full of homes, it was so very quiet. Moss Ledge was truly a home away from home. After a long day of hiking the mountains, it was most pleasant to have this place to come back to. This is our fourth time in Maine/Acadia area but the first time at Moss Ledge. Definitely this has been our best stay yet. We totally recommend this cottage and we hope to return and stay again. We think you will love it just like we did. Stop in the Chart Room for a great dinner! And of course shopping in Bar Harbor can't be beat.
