About Evan Contorakes
I'm an active outdoors man who lives in Miami, FL. and spends many weeks in Maine each summer. My wife and 2 college aged children love to spend our summers in Otter Creek as we are so close to Bar Harbor and and walk/ride/jog to many of the great, scenic beauties on Mt. Dessert Island. I am a hard-working, advertising agency owner with a large staff of employees and my job is very stressful. Our cozy and spacious 3 bed w loft home is the perfect way for me to "re-charge my batteries" and I hope it provides the same elixir for you. Hope to meet you at THE COTTAGE AT OTTER CREEK.

lovely stay in a perfect location
this house is in the perfect location!! We had very short drives to all main Acadia spots and to be honest we could've walked to many hikes. There was 9 of us (all adults!) and while this house is probably more suitable for large families, we made it work and were perfectly comfortable! We also had a bunch of questions and requests and Evan was an extremely responsive and gracious host. There's also a little general store right next door that had everything that we inevitably forgot to bring with us. I would highly recommend this home to anyone. :)
Thank you Sofiya, always a pleasure to hear guests had a great time in town and especially staying in the cottage. We hope you'll be able to visit again!
Great family cottage
Our family LOVED this property! It was centrally located to all the hiking and sight seeing and allowed us to return mid-day for our toddler to take a nap. Dawn at the country store is very friendly and willing to help if needed. We were so grateful that we were able to take our dog with us on the vacation as well- just note that the yard is not fully fenced in if your dog wonders. The cottage is stocked full of board games that were fun to play after our toddler went to bed. Finally, it was nice to be able to do a load of laundry since we were doing more traveling after our stay and didn't want to have to pack so much. I would highly recommend this cottage and would return to this cottage if we came back to Acadia.
Thank you Amy, we appreciate your comments and hope you do get a chance to stay again.
We had a great time at the Cottage at Otter Creek in April.
We really enjoyed a quiet getaway to Acadia off-season. The house had everything we needed for a long weekend and was very comfortable for our family of 4. The owner was accessible and easy to work with on all the details we needed.
Cozy cottage vacation
We loved the cottage and it was in a great location. It worked out very well for our group of 5 people. We thought we would have access to a washer and dryer but there were none. It would have also been helpful to have a list of info about the house and surrounding area as well as a phone number for owner to call with questions. The basement light was on the entire time we were there but we had no way to turn it off and no access to the basement. The power also went out for 4 hours and we had no flashlights with working batteries. It would have also been helpful to know the nearby market closes for the season in early October.
Hi Jennifer, thank you for staying and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your vacation at the cottage. It seems there might have been some sort mix-up - the washer and dryer are in the basement right next to the light switch, I'm not sure why you weren't able to enter - that door should not be locked.
The following might help future guests, so: there are a few flashlights by the the windowsill in the back entrance. Also, the market usually makes the decision to close up for the winter at early November, but it seems like they decided to close early this year - I'm sorry, I was not made aware of that.
Anyway, thank you for being a great guest - hopefully we have you with us again someday.
Wonderful family stay in Otter Creek!
My family spent three nights in October 2017. The house was perfect for our larger family with plenty of room to spread out. Kids loved that there were some games to play, and my husband was thankful to have plenty of televisions to enjoy the MLB baseball playoffs! The house is clean and charming with the cozy feel of a Maine cottage, and it is a short drive from Bar Harbor. There are also several hiking trails near the house. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Evan!
The house is in a perfect location. The south ridge trail for cadillac mt is only 0.5 miles away. There is a trail at the end of the road which brings you right down to the park loop.
Otter creek market which is behind the house has a bus stop for the island exlorer. The house is cozy and the neighborhood was very quiet.
