Lovely, Lovely Cottage: Beautiful, Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vacation rentals, and many were very fancy places, but this might be our all time favorite. It is simple, but the spot is stunning--so quiet, so picturesque, with lovely breezes and cross ventilation. Peace hangs over the cottage and the cove. The cottage is nicely laid out and has all you need. It is very convenient to the national park, to all parts of the Mt. Desert Island and to Bar Harbor. The farm to table restaurant right across Route 3 is lovely and the two places that make you two lobster dinners for two people for $36 were great. You see gorgeous sunsets each evening and can walk down to the beach to join the other people who savor the pink skies. Our two little dogs even immediately fell in love with the place and were relaxed and smiling from ear to ear, lying on their backs. We had the most enchanted week staying here!

Peaceful & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very comfortable and well equipped with a great view of the bay. Having a washer and dryer was a plus. The only problem was that we could not get the wifi to work, some problem with the IP address but we survived. If we ever returned to the area we would certainly stay there again.

Nice location with a pretty view

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin, it was easy to find, all the information the owner left was really helpful. We enjoyed Arcadia and Bar Harbor as well as picking up fresh seafood and cooking at the cabin- they have lots of tools you need. It is definitely has a camp, cabin feel and it was great for our first trip away with our newborn daughter!

Well kept & lovely view of the cove

  • 3 of 5

For a last minute place to rest our heads it was perfect, nestled in the woods. Very clean and well appointed with ample dishes & pans. Comfy bed in a large master bedroom. The steep slope from the driveway could be a challenge for some folks. . . just don't drink too much. Disappointed by the lack of access to walk / hike down to the cove - it kept calling me.

Quaint Maine Cabin with Beautiful View of Bay

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is adorable and perfect for small families or a couple. I stayed here with my dog for a hiking vacation in Acadia and it was wonderful. The cabin is older (as advertised), but the view from the living room window is worth it. It was quiet and peaceful and only 10 minutes from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Enjoyed it!

Great Location on Mt. Desert Island

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a terrific week. The location was perfect for heading to Acadia Park/Bar Harbor or the western destinations on the island. Our contact was very responsive (but unobtrusive). Everything seemed provided and easily acessable on the property. HIghly recommended.
