Marc is very accommodating and makes sure that you're happy and satisfied with your cottage. The cottage was very clean, comfortable, and well-furnished. I would rent from him again.

“Clean and comfortable accommodations on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island”

My wife and I stayed at the Rose Cottage during the first week of June, 2015.

The reservation process was straightforward. Marc and Victoria are quick with helpful, friendly responses via email.

Upon arrival Marc treated us to a tour of the property and took the time to sit down with us to provide some tips on places to visit and to give general advice on navigating the island.

Marc encouraged us to text or call if we needed anything during our stay.

Our stay was pleasant and comfortable. The Rose has everything we needed to rest comfortably between our daily adventures and is close enough to anything one would want to see on the island. The village of Southwest Harbor is even within walking distance!

Anna's Quietside Cottages is a great place to stay while visiting Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor or any of the nearby points of interest.

“Excellent choice for a family vacation in Maine”

This was our very first trip to Maine and we had a great stay at Anna's Quietside Cottages. This was a great place for our family of 5. Plenty of room, a full kitchen and an ideal location that we used as 'home base' so we could explore all that Mount Desert Island had to offer. Marc gave use great information about hiking with young kids, places to explore, detailed directions and guidance to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. I really felt like I was taking a gamble not staying at a hotel/inn type of accommodation but in the end we were thrilled that we chose to stay at Anna's…It was a short walk into town for coffee and rolls each morning and minutes away from amazing Acadia National Park.

“Couldn't be happier-great cottages, hospitable and kind hosts”

We just returned tonight from two weeks in the lovely Rose Cottage with our daughter and son-in-law and two granddaughters. We also rented the Pavillion for 1 week for the other 11 members of our immediate family. We all came together to celebrate our 50th anniversary and we could not have made a better selection. The location is terrific-minutes walk to the center of charming Southwest Harbor, beautiful acreage with pond filled with frogs and a firepit for our s'mores and propane cookers for our lobsters. The huge screened porch at the Pavillion was large enough for all of us to eat meals together. Houses were in great condition, quite new, with nice appliances including a dishwasher, and comfortable mattresses. Marc and his parents bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed-even sticks for the s'mores and special treats for our anniversary dessert. Hospitality center is fabulous too. Recommend it most highly.

“The Tipi was a great adventure!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was a last minute booking and I was really happy to have found a place to stay during one of the busiest times in Bar Harbor. We stayed in the Tipi and it is kind of a cross between a cabin and camping in a tent. There was a comfortable bed and a cot in the room with plenty of blankets to stay warm. There was also a mini fridge, microwave, and plenty of kitchen stuff. I stayed here with my 3 year old son, and he absolutely loved living in a tipi. There is a complete bathroom and shower building right next to the tipi, so you aren't really roughing it, but you are exposed to a little outside air from under the tipi and from the top. I highly recommend staying here because the location is great and Marc (the owner) was awesome. He gave great recommendations on what to see and do in the area, as well as the best restaurants to eat at. I think one of the main reasons my trip to Mount Desert Island was so great was due to his great recommendations. One thing to keep in mind though is that they required payment in cash, and he made sure I knew that ahead of time so it wasn't a surprise.
