“As advertised!”

We were very pleased with Paul's Cottage overall. We particularly enjoyed the following aspects of staying there: 1. the awesome view of Blue Hill Bay from the living room and brand new deck, 2. the huge fireplace with complimentary wood in the living room, 3. comfortable beds, 4. washer and dryer, and 5. full kitchen supplies. In comparison to these amenities, we had only minor complaints: 1) spotty Wi-Fi reception, 2. fuzzy TV reception; and 3. uncomfortable wicker chairs in the living room. These issues were not a big deal because we were there to escape technology (for the most part) and spent much of our time at the cottage relaxing in the comfortable chairs on the outside deck. Our host, Kathy, was available next door, but we did not need anything during our stay. We would stay there again.

My husband and I found this place in 2005 and we absolutely fell in love with it. We have come back at least once per year since then. The cottage is on the peaceful "Quietside" of the island so you can relax, yet close to everything Acadia National Park has to offer. The huge fireplace is perfect for chilly fall nights; the sunsets off the back deck are breath-taking; and on most mornings we saw a bald eagle flying overhead. We can't imagine staying anywhere else when we come to Maine!
