Beautiful home, nice location, would recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Newman Cottage. Home was clean, and well maintained/furnished.

If we ever make it back to Mount Desert Island, we'll definitely consider staying again.

Thanks for giving our family what truly felt like a "home away from home". :)

Another fantastic stay at Newman Cottage

This was our second year staying at Newman Cottage. The location was excellent for exploring MDI and Acadia. The house fit our needs perfectly. We're already looking forward to next year! Thank you!

Fantastic Stay at Newman Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family - two adults, three teens, and our black lab dog - enjoyed our stay at Newman Cottage at the end of June 2016.

Newman cottage has a relaxed, happy vibe. The cottage was very clean upon arrival. There was plenty of room, the beds were comfortable, and the home is within easy striking distance of any Acadia/Mount Desert destination. We made several trips to the east side of the island and found the drive to be quick and easy. The wifi worked consistently well and kept us connected during our down time. The shower worked very well. The outdoor gas grill was adequate and my family enjoyed using the chimenea for smores at night. There is an IGA within a couple of miles for grocery shopping as well as a number of good restaurants. The owners were very friendly and responsive to our questions. We bought fresh lobsters and fresh eggs from them. They also returned our security deposit in a timely fashion.

In summary, we had a fantastic stay at Newman Cottage as a base for our exploration/vacation on Mt. Desert Island. We would stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home! We truly enjoyed our stay at the Newman Cottage. It is so well equipped, they really did think of everything. It was so nice to have a true home to come back to each day while we were on Mount Desert Island. It was also nice to stay on the "quiet side", away from all the traffic and crowds. We went out almost every evening, either to the rocks at the sea wall, or down the beach right of way at the cottage, just to relax and let the kids play. We certainly recommend the Newman Cottage to everyone.

Perfectly Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer. This was a great location for exploring the Island. There was plenty of space, and a lot for the kids to do. They really enjoyed discovering the toy cupboard and game closet, and had a blast playing outside in the tree, something these city kids don't get to do often enough. The owners were very easy to work with, and the house was well taken care of.

Nice and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful comfortable house with all the necessities needed to run a household. The downstairs was roomy with a fully stocked kitchen, a large dining area, and a comfortable living room. In the dining area was a visitors book which contained information on the property, and instructions for necessities such as garbage removal, pellet stove operation, etc. Even though our visit was in the beginning of June, the nights were cool, and we used the beautiful large pellet stove. The yard was nice with plenty of room for a cook out. I loved that we could walk to the cove and enjoy the bay. The house was only a short drive from whatever attraction Acadia has to offer. Thank you for a nice stay
