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.

Cozy cottage vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

The size and coziness of the cottage were perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

The set up and decor of the cottage provided a very lovely venue for us. The room for four to sleep as well as two baths all located on the ground floor were perfect for four "Old Dolls"!

We also made great use of the very large deck and fire pit. ... even toasted hot dogs on sticks!!!

Just a quick trip to Bar Harbour, Cadillac Mountain etc.

I would highly recommend the property itself as well as it's location!!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house was big enough for our group of 3 adults and 6 children. The kids loved the loft. We had everything we needed for our stay. The kids loved being able to walk to the market next door.

The location was the best. Short drive into Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. Central location to most everything. And right on the bus route.

Spacious home, quiet street, cozy place.

  • 4 of 5

This home was so big! It would be great for a large family several adults with multiple kids. My husband & I stayed with our 3 small dogs (so grateful to Evan for letting us bring them!). We only used 1 bedroom & 1 bathroom; but there is another full bathroom, 2 more bedrooms, plus a loft up the ladder with even more beds. There is a large full kitchen, a dining room, TWO family rooms, and a porch. We especially utilized the mudroom on the way into the house to wipe off the dogs before they came back into the house. We all cuddled on the different sofas each morning & evening, and the dogs were so cozy during our stay. The street is dead end, and the house is in the entrance of that street, JUST behind the general store right off the main road leading into Bar Harbor. The house has a fence, but just FYI it's not a complete fence, so if your dogs wander, they can't really be out in the yard off leash because it's easy & quick to escape to the main road. Evan responded graciously with the address when we were on our way into town, and we felt he was available if needed, but otherwise we were left to our privacy on vacation.
