About The Owner

There is no other place on this planet like Bar Harbor - We love Bah HahBah!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

We took our family camping in our VW Vanagon in Bar Harbor in 2007. It was our very first visit and it was love at first sight. In 2008, we purchased Blue Rose Cottage because we knew this would be a place we'd want to return to each year. We hope you feel the same way.

Spacious property located in the heart of Bar Harbor.

  • 5 of 5

Summerside Cottage is a nice two-story, 4-bedroom home with great access to the town of Bar Harbor. My family of 7 adults and one baby were very comfortable here and really enjoyed our stay and all that Bar Harbor has to offer. Property is well-maintained, instructions are clear, customer service was fantastic, in advance of our trip, and I would highly recommend this property to other families. My only suggestion would be some floor fans in each bedroom to help circulate the air at night. Hands down, this was a fantastic place to stay for our entire family!

well equipped, great location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this cute well equipped home in Bar Harbor. We really enjoyed both being able to walk town, and the very short drive to Acadia. It was the perfect spot for a short trip.

The house itself was also well appointed with everything one might need.

We will definitely think about renting there again. Thanks for a great time.

Nice house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was really great; it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. But the best part of staying at Summerside Cottage was the location. The downtown shops and restaurants are an easy walk away - so is the shore trail. Some of Acadia's best attractions like Sand Beach, beehive, and Thunder Hole are reached with just a short drive or bike ride - much closer than I realized. Some really nice lesser known spots are even closer. We could not have been happier with our stay here. Thank you for making this property available for our visit to Bar Harbor!

Four Fab Friends Love Summerside and Acadia

  • 5 of 5

I have fallen in love with our National Parks and enlisted three long-time friends to tackle Acadia with me. We hunted high and low for the perfect lodging on MDI and surely found it at Summerside Cottage. Location is so ideal for all activities--we walked to all our meals (except for Thurston's which is the best lobstah experience on MDI), walked to kayaking and biking rentals and to the Village Green to catch the Island Explorer and all of the park entrances are a short drive away. The cottage is sparkling clean and wonderfully appointed for four or more. Bedding and towels are plentiful and great quality and the kitchen has everything a group will need. We all commented on how comfy all the beds are. We met the neighbors one night while sitting on the back deck having a glass of wine before walking to dinner and felt a part of the neighborhood. Logan and Hong gave us many ideas for restaurants and activities and were immediately responsive to any questions we had. We all would recommend this cottage for a variety of groups and I would love to return one day to Acadia, Bar Harbor and Summerside Cottage!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 9 (and two dogs) spent two wonderful weeks at this lovely property. The location is near everything in Bar Harbor with restaurants, shops, movie theater, and grocery store within walk-able distance. The homeowner, Logan, is very accommodating and even got lobster equipment for our use. We watched the July 4th parade from a half-block from the cottage and walked to the fireworks. It was warm enough that we were pleased to have air conditioning. The house is well equipped with everything a traveler needs. We never tire of Acadia. Thurston's Lobster Pound was recommended by Logan. Their lobster is the freshest and just wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful review! I'm delighted that you had such a good time during your two weeks at Summerside that you booked the same 2 weeks for 2016 as soon as you got home!:) You and your family were absolute delights - and I look forward to you spending time next summer at Summerside Cottage as well! Thanks again!

Perfect downtown location and great family vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect downtown location, walkable to all of Bar Harbor. We were four generations, five people and found the home well appointed and comfortable. Really felt like a home away from home. Particularly enjoyed the enclosed porch for reading, coffee and quiet. The owners and maintenance man Bob were immediately responsive and a delight to work with. This is what I'd like to expect every time I come to a VRBO. Thank you Logan.
