Very nice spot to stay while visiting Desert Island and Bar Harbour.
Take care when arriving as the entrance is difficult to spot. The row boats are adequate and are nice to take out on the water. Unfortunately, the oars do not have collars which are a necessary safety feature. Ensure children are well attended.
The cabin is very nice and sitting on the deck watching the water was just delightful. The hosts were very helpful and provided lots of information and pamphlets for us.
Another unexpected surprise is the free bus system on the island. The bus goes past the Cottage site and will stop to pick up/drop off. We used the bus system extensively to orient ourselves on the island and then drove to those places we wanted to explore more.
There is a good grocery store in Bar Harbour and prices seemed to be quite reasonable (for a tourist area).More
