I recently stayed in a cottage with three other people and had a great time. The cottage was meticulously cleaned daily by the wonderful maids, enough to please my OCD tendencies. The kitchen is small but functional. We cooked most of our own meals and it was a little challenging with only two burners and no oven but it was... More

We truly enjoyed the cottage, reminded us of our first little apartment when we were first married. It has a little kitchen and bathroom which are a bit dated (and cozy), but this is exactly what you get with this type of rental. We wish the mosquitoes weren't so bad so that we could have sat outside and enjoyed the... More

We stayed one night, 4th of July, 2014! It was a bit old fashioned, but the bathroom was fully updated and all new. The room was very clean, and while dated, the appliances were well cared for and fully functional. We were there through the last gasps of Hurricane Arthur, and slept like babies. The only suggestion I would make... More

We traveled from Florida and spent 3 nights in the 2 bedroom cottage and had a wonderful stay. We arrived after 11 pm and Richard and Helen most graciously left the cottage unlocked with the porch light on and the heat on for us, all without us having left them a credit card. Who else would be that thoughtful? The... More

We booked the two bedroom cottage on a long weekend. When I was talking on the phone with them I spoke it so clear that I would love to book it for "2 nights" and they said "ok" so when we arrived there, the story change. They charged my credit card for "3 nights". I complained about that and they... More

We called at the last minute and was graciously accommodated. We found it very convenient to Bar Harbour and Acadia National Park and the proprietors were friendly very helpful and responsive to our questions and concerns. We were delighted at the cleanliness and how well maintained the place is. We highly recommend it!

Being able to stay in the cottage and being able to have the kitchen to cook in worked great for us. The owners were extremely accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this place. The rates were great and the rooms and... More
