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.

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.

Otter Creek Maine Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Otter Creek cottage. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed for our week's stay.

The king bed was particularly comfortable and we LOVED sleeping with the windows opened at night. Loved the corner stove and used several mornings to get the chill out of the air. Location was close enough to Bar Harbor to easily access restaurants and activities but also far enough away to provide a neighborly secluded feel. Very close to walking trails for Acadia National Park and the next door market was great for picking up one off items. Thanks for sharing your property!

Exactly what a Maine cottage should be

  • 5 of 5

My first trip to MDI and Otter Creek Cottage was perfect. Cozy and ideally located close to Bar Harbor and the best Acadia trails. The Otter Creek market next store was awesome- wonderful people and amazing lobster dinners. The owner was great to deal with. The cottage looks exactly as it does in the pics. You won't regret staying here.

Family friendly in the best location to get into the park and all the hikes, ocean and sand beach!

  • 5 of 5

After having driven around to different parts of the Island we soon realized that Evan's cottage is in a perfect location! About 10 minutes if that from the shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor, and about 5 minutes from the entrance to the park and all the trails we wanted to do! The house is comfortable and has a lot of room. The pictures don't do it justice - the decor is really cool! We loved the quartersawn oak furniture in the dining room and den! The decor including all the hand painted Maine themed signs and pictures really made me feel like I was in the middle of my Maine Seaside vacation. My kids loved the rooms they were in. They were even decorated as kids rooms, one in blue and one in pink, which made my two boys and girl pick the "perfect" room for them :)

The kitchen had everything we needed for my husband to cook lovely meals! And for us, having a playground right across the street was a huge bonus! We would definitely come here again! It was a perfect vacation!

Great spot, fabulous neighborhood and neighbors.Super convenient to the park.

  • 5 of 5

This property is even better than the pictures! We had everything we needed for our family vacation. Wish we could've stayed another week.We were able to walk to the national Park from the cottage, a terrific convenience! The free shuttle stops next-door at the store. It was also fabulous to have the store right there for when we need any last minute things. The people at the store and the neighbors in general were warm and friendly. It was truly a pleasure.

Perfect MDI Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house is better than the pictures or the description. The location is ideal. The owner is great to work with and it's right next to the Otter Creek general store. Don't miss out on the fresh scones and muffins. Oh and the lobster rolls and fresh made soups. The beds are comfy, the couches are plentiful. The deck out back is large. There's plenty of room inside and out. There's stars galore even though you're in a small town. The neighbors are friendly and helpful. You're close to everything here. This house and community made our first trip to Maine make us want to come back again and again. Don't miss this jewel.
