Lovely cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We were quite pleased with the location and cleanliness of the "Rugosa" cottage. It is minutes away from the Hull Cove visitor center of Acadia National Park and the village of Bar Harbor. The cottage was clean and well maintained. The loft proved excellent for reading and napping after a day of hiking. The two pools were also great for a late day swim especially since we had a couple of hot days.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend staying at any one of Queen Annes cottages! This was our second experience there and it is such a fantastic location. Quiet, private with an amazing view. Not to mention your very own private beach to explore! Our family of four truly enjoyed and relaxed in the cozy cottage! The location was just outside Bar Harbor and was clean and maintained very well. The owner is very attentive and welcomes feedback from the customers. We will be back!

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

You know you LOVED a place when you really don't want to write a review because you're hoping it will be available the next time you want to reserve it. I LOVED this place. . .It is quiet, tastefully appointed, beautifully located, sweet, charming, clean, safe -- really just perfect. I came up for a "retreat" with my little dog. We both loved it. It is close to everything, but feels far away. I hiked in the park, drove around the island, walked on the beach, and ate my body weight in lobster and crab. I woke up in solitude and ended my day in beautiful sunsets. They have thought of everything -- the little kitchen has everything you need, the sitting areas are cozy and comfortable, the deck areas sweet. I even grilled. This is a perfect place for a couple or a single person -- but if the other units are anything like this one, then the larger ones would be great for groups. All three units were booked while I was there, and it was still so peaceful. I cannot recommend Rugosa Cottage more. . .but please don't book it when I want to come up again! :)

Owner's Response: Wow, such a nice review...thanks so much!! We're so happy that your vacation was so great! Just a note to prospective guests: Rugosa is equipped to handle a family of 4, or a young family of 5, as well as couples and singles.:) The loft area is a great nook with a view or doubles as a sleeping area for 2. There is also a sleep sofa in the main living area. Thanks again!

Perfect for us

  • 4 of 5

The property was very quaint, clean, well stocked and well organized. The location was very private and had a great view. We always enjoyed coming back to the comfortable bed in the cottage and the fire pit after a long day of hiking in Acadia National Park. We loved Bar Harbor and hope to come again and stay in the same cottage.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and 2 dogs stayed at the Rugosa and it was perfect. The cottages are a little closer than I was expecting, but our "neighbors" were very friendly. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Even though we didn't use it, the loft was a nice addition. When we weren't in town we were relaxing on the porch admiring the view or walking along the shore with the dogs. We are already planning a trip back with friends!

Great Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled there with my 1.5yr old son and had a great time. We spent most days exploring different parts of Acadia National Park and the location was perfect for this. It was also nice to be in a quiet and tucked away area from the busy Bar Harbor (lots of cruise ships!). We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the bay and lobster boil at the rental. The kitchen is small but well stocked with anything you could need. We did have a couple minor issues with the cottage after arrival, but the owner was super responsive and gracious. We highly recommend this cottage!
