This place is simply awesome. Beautifully tucked under serene setting (Woods and Ocean on each side) , very clean, comfortable and abundantly stocked dwellings and above all two of very simple and nice hosts , there is every reason to think that once you stay here you always want to come back. Its a place hardly 10 minutes from the humdrum of the Bar Harbor town and less than 10 minutes from one of the entrances of Acadia national Park, it just serves what is promises and that too in a most stupendous way.
We stayed in the 2-bedroom #3 cottage right on the cove and LOVED it! Every morning you wake up to the beauty of Maine, gulls breaking clams, and a beautiful view right out your big front window. Hosts, Gail and Carroll are just wonderful and do everything they can to help you out. I appreciated that the cottage was spotless, well-stocked, and well-maintained. Canoes and kayaks are free to use. Faces westerly, so if there's a pretty sunset you'll see it. Only downside, and this isn't their fault, is that the internet is spotty, could only get it on our phones.
All of the reviews are accurate -- but curiously none of them mention that there is no air conditioning in these modern oceanfront cabins. We endured NO dusk breezes but PLENTY of mosquitoes so bad we couldn't go outside to look for the promised breezes. Cooking in the fully-outfitted kitchen (again, gorgeous) was not an option when it's over 90 degrees inside (but cooler outside-- frustrating!) The sun comes right into the cabin, the views are incredible, but the two fans they provide aren't enough. We'll definitely be back, but not in mid-summer.
There is not one bad thing to say about this place. Gail and carrol accommodated us more then any place could have! We thoroughly enjoyed the access to the water with the kayaks/roboats. Also the grills on the deck to cook dinners on the sunset. We stayed in cabin 7, only downfall was we were not right on the water like other cabins are. We went as boyfriend and girlfriend and left as fiancés! Awesome place, highly recommended!
These are well kept and well appointed cabins near Acadia National Park. Hosts are knowledgeable and friendly and will have you feeling like a local in no time. Beautiful scenery and quiet if you are looking for some peaceful down time. Great find!
